I've got some thoughts on that tornado. It's being used to put a point on extreme weather that is getting worse and worse via climate change so there's that!
I'm thinking the tornadoes main point is just to throw a wrench in the works during a pitched battle? Just when your squad is entrenched in place and kicking ass, in sweeps a tornado and scatters players forcing them to regroup and recover from the chaos????
the team / squad mechanics would be most interesting with that many players. by mechanics I don't mean what the game allows, but more how the teams / squads work together on the map to achieve their objectives.
Battlefield V has weather events as well, just not as massive as those shown on the trailer. And Battlefield games have been squad focused as far back as I remember, to the point that you are automatically put into a squad when you join a MP game in BFV. None of the BF games are truly realistic, it's all about better gameplay. That's fine by me.
So far I am not that excited. I hope this is a good game but I don't care about that tornado and hope it can be disabled. It will be fun and interesting the first time but after that it will get frustrating and annoying. 128 players is something I have been hoping for for a long time. There will be 64 player modes as well. I don't care that it doesn't have singleplayer but I do like they are bringing back bots.
I am not liking the whole pay $80 and then buy a battle pass every 3 months monetization they are going with. I am not sure if I will like the operators either as I like BF games where everyone is on the same level and I would hate it to face players that have OP operators.
