One nice thing I read about the vehicles is that now you can choose what type of vehicle you want to spawn with. Like if you want to play with 3 heavy tanks or 3 light tanks you can, for example. Same for planes, with bombers and the other types. I think this open up another layer of strategy for the armies, you can make strats with different vehicles in mind.

I'm... really hyped. Especially if BF1 means more GC. The gameplay looks good so far and thankfully more fast paced than Waddlefield 4.
And I'm happy they took the ahistorical route and added a bunch of 30 round automatics. Everyone running around with iron sight bolt actions would have been pretty boring, haha.

Note the way Conquest mode works at the moment - no more ticket bleed. It's basically seems to work like flag TDM now.

So all of that looks really interesting. I'm not sure on how I feel about Conquest going to 100% about flags. There will be no more "hold spawn!" moments, which many of us find very memorable in GC.

Also lol @ being able to destroy an enemy tank by hitting it with a tiny hammer. ahaha.

I don't think so. I think they simply reversed the conquest bleed. You still get points for holding flags, which is essentially the bleed.

Not exactly. Technically there is no more bleed since there's no more a bank of tickets your team uses up as you spawn in or bleed out. You just accumulate points just like in TDM, only instead of kills it's flag based. You can die and spawn as many times as you like. It's a pretty big change as explained here: http://forum.symthic.com/battlefield-1- ... ce-bf1942/
