We have a wide range of tweaks planned to further balance the core gameplay of Battlefield 4 in upcoming patches. But we need your help in identifying next steps. Let us know what we should focus on next by voting in our balancing poll.
We have a lot of balancing items in the pipeline for our upcoming Battlefield 4 patches, and we will be able to share them and the rationale behind them soon. In the meantime, we would love to hear your opinions on some of the additional balancing ideas that we could add to the mix. Let us know what you think in the poll below, and on the behalf of the entire team here at DICE: Thanks for your dedication!
Players have suggested that the Attack Boats could have superior anti-aircraft abilities. Possible suggestions include improving the Anti-Aircraft ability of the BURST CANNON, adding a MAA style 20MM CANNON, or additional types secondary missiles with Anti-Aircraft intentions. Is the air defense ability of the ATTACK BOAT considered a problem?
The FGM-148 seems to be considered the weakest of the Anti-Tank missiles for Engineer. We have considered increasing the damage it does from 25% to 34% against tanks.
After the most recent update players are reporting the STEALTH JET 20mm cannons are now slightly over powered. Is this a universal feeling? There has also been concern about the 25mm and 30mm not receiving any changes. Are changes here desirable?
We are considering some minor changes to Fast Attack Craft cannons: Reducing the splash damage area against infantry, requiring the player to hit closer to targets to get quick kills. And increasing the speed and the direct damage of the Burst cannon to aid hitting aircraft. No changes are being considered for the 30mm cannon.
Canister Shells on MBT and IFV seem less popular than BF3, and could possibly use a buff. For the MBT Canister round, an increase in accuracy and damage, while for the IFV a slight increase in damage are both being considered. Finally, an increase in the projectile speed to enable them to more easily hit moving targets.
That’s it for now. We have many more tweaks in store for you that we will share shortly. In the meantime, please vote to make your voice heard on which of these you would like us to focus on. Let us know in the comments below if you have further suggestions. Thanks!
