Battlefield 4 True Naval Battle Revealed
Last time naval vehicles demoed at E3 were like accessories to ground combat, now a true naval battle was revealed, I think this kinda intensive naval action FPS is the first I've ever seen:
And not only that, you will see that there will be real-time storm going on during battle, that says you will have to fight your enemies through the storm.
I hope EA will soon announce how players' accounts are managed. I really want to be able to play this in cybercafes.
One thing thought: 64 players max. cap again?!

I loved BF3 and played it tons at release but as per usual if you don't buy the map packs the player base you can interact with diminishes every time a new one comes out, to the point where finding a full Vanilla server 3 packs in was pretty frustrating.

Looks great, specially the last part, starting in 1:13.
But I fear balance would need to be very good, or all naval units will just be easy prey for a single player on the server flying a jet. I can already see how this would go really shitty very quick even with one jet in the map.Ursula Le Guin - The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas

So maybe they will bring back piloting aircraft carriers and giant ships?
My personal biggest disappointment about the new BF games (even the BF1942 remake titled BF1943) is they removed the ability to drive the big ships. WTF?

I think I will wait until a discount on premium to get this, seeing how I stopped playing BF3 after 2 months (not because it was bad, just no time and to many other games). Looks great. Doing a lot more than what CoD does with rehashed small 8v8 deathmatch maps.
I do miss naval combat of BF 1942... destroyer with a scout was the best.

It looks like less stuff than was in BF 1942? I can't even drive an Aircraft Carrier.
You could at least add frigates/destroyers for a modern setting.

It's not really "naval" combat, just boat combat

What is that jet which looks like a F22 but with two tiny wings in front of main wings? F22's STOL/MTD?

Also, the naval combat is really not naval at all, ever so slightly bigger then BF2's RIB boats but nothing compared to anything before. Not even a destroyer or escort ship, or a sub to mess about with. Really, we need manoeuvreble carriers again!PS2/NS2/Mumble: SirWigglyBottom

I don't understand what the problem was with piloting the big ships. They removed that feature in the console "BF1943" remake of BF1942. The only problem I can think of is when you have some asshole steer the ship off the map, killing everyone on board. Disabling the feature is a horrible solution to that problem.

I don't know, though, if we had a platoon with a good leader who transferred leadership when he couldn't be arsed any more, the platoon could be kept filtered so that it didn't fill up with people who just don't play any more, that would make it much easier for active players to find people to play with, but most platoons I'm a member of are ghost towns because of people like me. Also I hardly ever actually played with any of them.
The other difficulty I had was finding EU players to play with, I guess I wasn't looking in the right places though.

Just started playing BF3 and after a few hours I already have a list of things that annoy me greatly. I doubt I gonna buy BF4 because after the last games I don't have much faith in Dice fixing issues outside of the video and audio department. I think I'll stick to other games until Battlefront comes out.(Firefall: bug shot) // (PS2: bobby is going home)

It looks fun but I never manage to play with anyone I know which I guess is half the fun. And I am terrible at mp fps.steam: sketch
