        The principle itself wasn't bad because BF2 had too many classes, but some of the merge choices weren't the best.

          The class system was good (barring assault, should have been scrapped), as it promoted passive teamwork which is essential when playing with pubs. In BF2, you were almost guaranteed to get rez'd if a medic was around. In nu-BF games classes are too wide in terms of capabilities which lends to everyone trying to do things themselves. I've put in a lot of hours into BF4 and can probably count being revived on both hands.

            Medic being merged into assault was definitely the most egregious misstep, those two classes more than anything should have been kept apart.

            But some consolidation was definitely needed. Anti tank didn't need to be a separate class, and they were correct in merging special ops with snipers.

      i love 2142 but i also blame it for merging the battlefield classes, which was a mistake.

      I think it worked at the time, but then got worse as the BF games moved on. Compared to BF2, the system in 2142 was better, because most people never touched engineer or anti-tank because the weapons absolutely sucked. I know the ideal situation is that the anti tank guy with the SMG and the engineer with the shotgun would stick with a squad, but even back in the day, that was a rare occurrence. It was always just assault, medic, sniper, and spec ops in BF2, so I get why they changed it. And for what it's worth, in my experience, 2142 had the best team play in any BF game I've ever played.

        you aren't supposed to shoot enemies with the SMG, that's for team killing
        you shoot enemies with the at launcher and kill them in one shot without íncap
        also engie is for vehicle driving but i get your point, I spent most of my time playing support, assault and medic

        • 1 month ago
          Anonymous

          It also didn't help that the AT launcher required 4 rockets to take down a tank or APC, so if you were the masochist who wanted to play as the anti-tank class, you would still get fricked up unless you happened to have another anti tank guy with you to actually do anything. Spec Ops with the C4 was superior because their primary weapons were some of the best in the game, and most of the time, the tanks were close enough to hit with C4 anyways. And you could take down two tanks with one loadout of C4. I've always loved that 2142 gave anti tank enough power to make armor think twice about trying to be the one-man-army that tanks were in BF2.

    modern vehicle mines already detect whats above them without having to be in contact, let alone ones that can detect tanks from a long distance via sound, or even just the simple tripline triggered mines
    and before you say "well just go out of range", that can be extended to the point that your "hover" tank is now just a flying tank
    the only benefit that would be derived is ease of terrain &/or ability to increase weight (depending on however the floating action works)

      If the US could, it'd be like 1 human supporting a whole squad of b1s, b2s, and eventually BX commandoes. A company may be 1 fireteam of humans and then the rest just droids. The humans would be arround to make sure that things dont get screwed up and make sure orders are relayed up and down properly. Basically any frontal assault would just be B2 spam.

          The US would rather take the musketeer and train them to do literally any other job than actually use them as infantry. The US is not afraid of boiling down war into a spending and production fight. The only reason we'd bother with the B1 though is if we just needed to fill gaps while the BX droid was developed, at which point you could expect B1s to flood into your local police departments (and private security) as part of the Global War on Ayy Terror, at which point you live in a police state where every subway station in NYC is crawling with the damn things and every police standoff looks like the Battle Droid--Gungan fight.

          And then once the BXA1SEPV2 is developed we'll just replace everything with that and droidekas.

            B1s arent worth the fuel it would take to transport them, nor the power it takes to operate them, nor the water expended from the mouth of the man giving them orders over a radio.
            Sure, the other droids might be useful, but a B1 is literally just a loud, heavy pile of garbage.

              The entire point of B1s is they dont NEED a man on a radio giving orders. Sure they're moronic, but you can literally do a full scale invasion from initial assault to policing/peacekeping without ever needing to put living soldiers in country.
              The other thing worth remembering is that you could probably build a B1 with modern tech, well apart from the laser guns, but it's useless without the definitely NOT cheap and mass produced giga-supercomputer AI brain controlling the entire drone swarm that early gen B1s need a connection to just to be able to walk around.

              Generally to continue screaming alongside the Warsgays. Star Trek has just as many goofy super powerful scenes along with just as many goofy low powered scenes.

              In one scene the enterprise will blow a half mile deep hole in the ground with one second of phaser fire and the next ten photon torpedoes cant blow up an RV park. Same with star wars, and most SciFi. Scifi authors dont know anything about guns.

      I appreciate that the Laser charge battery looks like an autoloader.
      >Missile tubes.
      Perhaps it's so it can dig in/hide behind cover, and present a minimal profile?
      Looks like if you needed to, you could get away with very little tank showing above the ground, very quickly.
      It is, after all, a flying vehicle. Profile is probably way more important to it, and it can just float high enough to bring the missile pods to bear if it needs to.

        It IS an autoloader- Star Wars "lasers", in particular the bigger ones, effectively shoot plasma shells full of sci-fi plasma gas stuff. (They're not "lasers" but "turbolasers", it's just a colloquial name to call them all lasers/blasters)

        I'm not much of a Star wars nerd but iirc it's something like
        >Turbolaser activates a frickmassive chemical laser for a split second
        >Uses this as a conduit for a HUGE dump of energy via plasma which imparts a stupid amount of hurt into something
        >The classic "blaster tracer" is just the air being burned by residual plasma- the blast itself is basically hitscan, and actually hits the target AFTER the "real" hit

        I could just be wrong but I think I read something along those lines somewhere.

          No that’s not right. They are packets or “bolts” of energized particles wrapped in high energy plasma. They are not hitscan and the bolt travel time is the travel time of the projectile ; you can miss your shots and “dodge” the bolts.

        And about as accurate.

    Why wouldn't they just make them fly at that point? Star Wars lore is so cheap and stupid. I hope you're not an adult who's still into this kid shit.

      if you can fly, even if it's a few meters up from the ground, why would you ever want to find on the ground?

      Fighting on the ground should be a last resort.

      I'm sure some sweaty nerd can give some overwrought book length explanation of how it "work" but hover tech in Star Wars seems to physically push whatever hovercraft or tank away from the ground like a bizzaro ground effect that doesn't also squash the grass under the vehicle and only hovers at a set height, but can lift a LOT of weight doing it. However if you want to actually have flight you still need actual lift producing thrusters.

      Based purely on how they seem to work in the movies I haven't seen in 10+ years I'd guess whatever bullshit tech forcefields and shield tech uses is just pointed down at the ground since the hovercraft seem more like they just have an invisible set of wheels cushioning it* than any real thrust or hover, they stay at exactly one height apart from hitting bumps or obstacles.

      (*They do. The hovercraft were filmed by basically lifting a vehicle prop off the ground with a big ass forklift and driving it around.)

    The repulsor lift is the one technology, if given the option, that I would have become real from the Star Wars universe. It would be a game changer across the globe where as shit like a hyperdrive would be so fricking expensive the common person would never see any benefit.

      you are greatly overestimating the momentum balance of a railgun
      let's say the railgun shoots M829 (10kg penetrator) at mach 20 (~6800 m/s)
      a 40 ton hovercraft would have its momentum changed by 1.7 m/s
