Two weeks since the last update [blogs.battlefield.com], and even more progress!

This edition of the Community’s Most Wanted List continues to outline more of the fixes and improvements we are making to multiplayer in Battlefield Hardline. Here are 10 more things we’ve learned from the beta that we’re putting into the game. We want to reinforce how important your feedback has been – we have a lot of other awesome changes underway and will be sharing more soon!

Community's Most Wanted List



1. REDUCING FREQUENCY OF EXPLOSIVES
We have heard your complaints about breaking the cops and robbers experience with the amount of heavy explosive weaponry available – but we didn’t want to sacrifice fun! We’ve made changes to reduce the frequency of explosive use to focus on the core gameplay, and we’ve made the use of explosives much more believable now.

2. REBALANCING AND RENAMING THE MECHANIC CLASS
We’ve made the class better in more situations – without sacrificing his ability to take down a vehicle. We’re also looking at renaming it – post your favourite suggestions in the comments!

3. REVISITING THE IN-GAME HUD
We’re working on establishing a clearer visual difference from BF4 and improving the messaging of the in-game HUD, from objectives to player status information.

4. REVISITING THE CUSTOMIZE SCREEN
We’ve taken a new pass at how the customize screen is laid out, and are making it clearer and easier to manage your gear and weapon attachments. This should address the majority of issues reported.

5. MAKING THE WORLD DEEPER AND MORE INTERACTIVE
We’ve been working on adding more touches to the game world, giving players more options and things to do that impact play. Look for interactive objects like doors, radios, ammo lockers, and more!

6. MAKING ROUNDS LAST LONGER
A significant amount of feedback during the Beta was received regarding the quick progression of rounds. We’ve made tweaks to both Heist and Blood Money that should help make the experiences last longer without sacrificing any of the fun.

7. INCREASING TRANSPORT VEHICLE HEALTH
There were a lot of comments about cars dying too easily from gunfire. We agree that one magazine from the AKM should probably not turn your sedan into a 4-person death trap quite so easily. We’ve also increased the survivability of the utility van.

8. IMPROVING AUDIO SITUATIONAL AWARENESS
In some of our game modes, situational awareness is very important. We’re working on improving the audio cues in the environment to help you detect and locate your enemies before they do the same to you.

9. MEDKITS AND AMMO BOXES SHOULD NO LONGER BLOCK L.O.S. CHECKS FOR REVIVE
Previously, you could fail to revive someone if a medkit or ammo bag was blocking the line of sight check for the revive mechanic. We are fixing this so that these no longer block you from reviving.

10. IMPROVING INTERROGATION
We’ve worked out some changes to the T62 CEW and the Interrogation mechanic. We’re working on making Interrogation only show enemies in a radius around the captured enemy, but show the marked enemies as if they had been Active Spotted by a teammate – making it both more useful and less powerful at the same time.

Come back to the site to check in and see the latest CMW lists – and to voice your opinion, we read the comments. We are doing our best to create an awesome MP experience, and in coming days we are revealing a ton of new multiplayer details including information on maps, modes, guns, gadgets and our single player campaign.

We want to hear your feedback!

Thanks,

hooah for letting us think you actually do care but still leave this game bf4 in terrible state. you can tell fairy tales all you want but Ill never buy a BF again if there will NOT be a max ping option. who will guarantee me from your company that hardline will not have the same issues that BF4 had at launch. you are just pushing hardline out the door cause in 2015 a lot of other good games witch actually deserve the AAA title will be released and then we as costumers havemore choice then play a broken game. Guarantee me in black and white and stop selling us BS pretending that you actually care about us.

good luck with the closed beta eeeuhm I mean CTE.

Red Spider or any mod- the changes look great. My question is: do you guys have a ETA on when the Hardline forums will be up? It'd be nice to be able to discuss the game properly.

Can't wait for hardline!

Doing an excellent job translating feedback into hard changes. I am buying this for sure and thought the beta was great fun. Everyone kept complaining about bugs but for me the only one I really saw was the floating miniguns on the transport helos.

Get another beta up and running when they are ready to test and lets polish this thing properly before launch!

If the trick is for me and my buddies to get endless hours of fun for $40 or so than yes, its a trick I cant wait to enjoy.
If the beta was any indication of what we are going to get more of across the board the game is going to be great.

I played bf4 beta on xb360 and thought it was rubbish.

PC and ps4 beta for hardline and the hit detection was spot on.

I also loved moh WF a lot and was bummed ea burnt us there too. EA owes us all

Id suggest renaming mechanic to Johnny..

Johnny -slight homage to Dillinger when playing Bad

Johnny -aka Johnny Law when playing w the good guys

Some jet tips in my battlelog presentation for those trying to learn.
