I need four screens minimum for all my war shooters.

Why cant i use normal internet to access battle log i don't have a functional smartphone and a tablet.

Posted by DJJoeJoe

I had the current battlelog site on my second monitor while I played BF3, though I didn't play the game for very long :( My CPU is really old and that game is abnormally CPU intensive.

They're introducing something they're calling "missions" and "leaderboards".

Posted by Danekas89

How many people are going to actually use this stuff?

Posted by jayjonesjunior

Maybe this time it won't suck.

Great, people are gonna be standing around in game while they look for servers on their tablets... really?

The geo thing seems pretty cool.

Where's my Windows Phone and Surface support!?!?!?! :P

Posted by HyperionXR

This current fascination with multiple screens/devices when we play games or watch shows just seems like pure insanity to me, and not in a good way. When I play a game, I don't need a billion other things surrounding me. I just play the game in front of me.

Am I still the only one who thinks that running a pc game off of a web browser is fucking stupid?

Posted by Microshock

The missions thing is stupid and will only distract entire squads/teams from the main objectives during multiplayer. I think it's stupid that you STILL have to wait for the killscreen to finish before you can choose your loadout, and their solution for that is to do it on your phone?

Posted by michaelfossbakk

Why wouldn't I just use the damn game to choose my new loadout WHEN I'M WAITING TO RESPAWN?

If they decide to force it upon us again, everyone.

All the clocks show the time to be 4:20. Classy.

But seriously, are people actually complaining about the game letting you do dumb shit on a smartphone on the side? They're not going to force you to use a phone to set your loadout.

Also, like @djjoejoe and many others, I too always had a second monitor with stats and stuff from battlelog on it while I played BF3. I was kinda surprised the game didn't automatically take you there and log you in when using the Origin overlay at that point, like Steam does with all its web integrated games. Battlelog was surprisingly good last time, and I look forward to trying some of these new features out. I just hope the system requirements are the same as BF3.

I really don't like all this second screen stuff. It does nothing for me.

Posted by Nadafinga

I kinda like the idea of having a second screen for the full map. Its handy if you're looking for, say an ammo pack or health kit, which if it wasn't within my field of view of the onscreen mini-map, I would pause the game to look at the full map in the pause menu.

I don't have a tablet, so I hope it gets Vita support. My phone's screen would be kinda small for this purpose.

I NEED ALL OF THESE SCREENS TO SHOOT DUDES!

Super cool, now mad guys who keep dying have the ability to see where people live, down to the street. So amazing, the privacy in this one is great. Waiting for murders to be happening, because johnny x was better in Battlefield.

If it's anything like BF3 then you won't be able to. That's one of the many annoyances in that game, you're stuck looking at the killcam of the dude who just killed you but you can't press enter to bring up the loadout screen. Stuff like that was taken out after they started the Bad Company series and now you can't do jack about it. Too many things are missing that you would expect to have in your game.

DICE sucks.

Stop calling modders idiots and release a fucking SDK so we don't have to play your poorly designed maps.

Posted by Kakarote23

I really like BF3 but I really don't like any of the servers and lack of in game squad VoIP. I just want some official servers to play on with normal developer intended balance. I don't want to play Metro/Bazaar/Karg endlessly on 1000 ticket servers. I don't want instant vehicle spawn. I don't want to join a team speak server. I just want to F***ing play!

I totally understand being able to lease your own server so you can have the option to play the way you want I just want some EA servers to play on with default settings.

I'd rather choose my load-out from my computer screen. The map thing is pretty cool. But, again, I'd rather use my second monitor.

These feature same aimed at console players who don't have second monitors.

Posted by Xpgamer7

Well I would like to have less menus inbetween my game. I also like that it's optional. However I don't care about setting it up during the rest of my life. That's for learning dumb stuff.

I can't wait until I get home, I need to look at my loadouts on this tablet. I can't wait 5 seconds to respawn, I need to look at this phone and this other tablet.

Who is this for? Heroin addicts?

I'M HOOKED ON THAT LEVELUTION.

Posted by themangalist

I have a shitty computer and I prefer to load my game FIRST and then look at the server browser in game. I really hope they have this alternative in 4.

Really? that would be great for games who have these capabilities.

Posted by m16mojo2

More gameplay, less stupid shit like iPhone loadouts... Why not just give us a full military uniform upon purchase, so we can REALLY feel like we're IN the game!!!

I'm not apposed to dumb stuff, I just really hope it doesn't effect the core development of the game. Have they even mentioned 2nd monitor support for PC's, or are they just catering to the consoles?

Edited by Devildoll

@m16mojo2: This is what the spectator mode looks like, so I'm guessing 2nd monitor support shouldn't be too hard to pull of.

Posted by whatisdelicious

Good lord this is a lot of complaining about totally optional features you don't need to use. I don't have a smartphone or a tablet so none of this applies to me, but I think it'd be pretty awesome if I was on my couch, not even using my PS4, and a game invite gets sent to my phone and I can accept the invite and have it load up on my TV without me having picked up the controller yet. Is that a game-changer? No, but it's still kind of cool.

The more I see of this game, the more pumped I get.

Posted by poheroe

I'd like to be able to watch this on my television, while hooked into my mobile device, which is being controlled by my tablet device, which is hooked into my oven all while sitting in the refrigerator'

Posted by m16mojo2

@devildoll: LMAO! Holy crap!

Well, if I can get that size map on my 2nd monitor, they have a sale.

Posted by EastboundSpider

Yeah, because i need all them screens, right?

Posted by csl316

Since I haven't played Battlefield since Bad Company 2 on consoles, I reckon jumping into huge online matches on the PS4 will be a HUGE leap for me.

PC gamers might go "it's Battlefield" but I'll probably be blown away.

Posted by Fox318

This sounds pretty cool. iRacing and other sims do this so I hope more games do it in the future!

Edited by TaunT

I am not super attached to the series, but I have enjoyed a few of the games in the past. Mite be cool

Posted by GreyFoxV1

So a selling point is now the ability to use a server browser on your tablet while still playing because DICE won't include an in-game browser? Seriously? What the hell is happening at that company.

Posted by WarOnHugs

@michaelbach: It seems like a really bad way for video games to spill over into real life. I realize only a few people have been killed over video games but it seems really creepy to me.

Posted by WarOnHugs

@csl316: The nice thing about the PC version is since consoles are also getting 64 players more the the maps might be balance around 64 players. PC will have a more complete experience thanks to the new generation of consoles.

Edited by csl316

@waronhugs: Yeah, good point. Kind of Battlefield: Unbound due to higher specs on every platform.

I don't know about you guys, but the first thing when I get home is 1) I wanna take a shower 2) I wanna check my emails 3) I wanna check my news stuff.

If I'm going home and the first thing I do is play battlefield, that's a serious addiction problem.

Posted by MichaelBach

@waronhugs: Hello, I think you meant to reply to another guys comment :)

Posted by Adaptor

Nothing wrong with having more ways to interact with a game but I wonder if time wouldn't be better spent on making subtle but cool changes to the core gameplay or, you know, the actual in-game interface. BF3's interface had so many quirks (to put it nicely) that it was quite clear they were working around limitations of some old-ass system. Really hope they rebuilt it from scratch before pushing that shit to even more screens...

Battlelog on the Bus? But I'll be busy controlling my drone in The Division then! IM GOING TO HAVE TO BUY TWO TABLETS
