Most Battlefield games had a distinctly high TTK, a design paradigm of DICE's balancing eversince BF2 (earlier BF games had a lower TTK). If the damage model stays as it is, this is quite a huge gameplay shift.
I was concerned at first about the the low TTK damage model, but color me a convert. It works out awesomely. Getting way less cheap deaths and kills. It's just when I have the inferior plan or execution I lose. When I have the superior plan and execution, I can kill a whole army on my own. Got pretty good a going ninja on M-COMs. Must have gotten 3-4 crates alone versus around 10 defenders, because the guns actually kill. So that's where I'm standing.
Low TTK = My Gun Kills A LOT = I love it when a plan comes together!
P.S. Excuse the shoddy title. I am playing too much and not sleeping enough currently. Between being hooked on Vindictus and my regular obsession with Battlefield, I'm just putting too much energy into my gaming habit right now. I'm almost afraid to get a beta key for SW:TOR, which seems more likely with every day that passes. DANG YOU VIDEOGAMES!
