With 2014 coming up and the start of the Battlefield 4 league soon after that, we pry +SSG+Lyynus away from the game to ask him some questions.
You’ve been playing BF4 for a while now, how do you find the game compared to BF3?
The game is not terrible as it currently is, from the side that you can shoot people and there are new toys to play with. However, at the same time, there are a few silly things with the netcode that need definite fixing and a bit of balancing here and there. 6.5/10 would bang. 😀
Any noticeable improvements to the game, that you feel makes it better than BF3?
There are definitely some features of the game that stand out and top BF3 however, I am only 20 hours in so, I have not had a chance to look at the majority of the stuff that is still on offer. Customization is a definite added bonus, as it goes pretty in-depth with the unlocks and items you can get from battlepacks.
BF4 brings the return of the commander, do you think it’ll make a difference to competitive play for the upcoming league?
Commander mode, as it currently is, is not viable(in my opinion) even on pubs, let alone in competitive formats. There does not seem to be much to it at all, every UAV you can possibly throw out simply gets wiped out by an opposing EMP UAV. There does not seem to be any bonus to playing commander other than a not-so-sneaky cruise missile every so often if you happen to have the correct flag. That is of course merely from observation, having no commander time to my name.
Quite a few people accused you of hacking in BF3, and then also not playing at DGC2013 raised even more suspicion. Where were you? And are people still accusing you of the haxors? 😛
Heh, this is a non issue as far as I am concerned. I’ve only ever been accused hacking on public servers, which is nothing much to write home about as, pretty much anyone who can be considered remotely decent has as well 😀
The part of me not going to rage has a lot to do with the course that I am studying currently, Maritime Science which does not allow much free time. In addition, exams from early October to mid-November ended the possibility of rage for me. I would have loved to have been there
If you could change one thing about BF4 what would you change, and why?
One thing I would change about BF4? The netcode 😛 (fix pls DICE) The random railings from across the map and models that are not even facing you killing you can be a bit much for the temper 😀
Anything else you’d like to add?
In addition, I would just like to add that the Vovo is love <3
