It's all done on purpose to slow down CC gain.I wish they would do something about assignments because they are a mess right now. It’s just a long list with no order whatsoever. It would be nice if they would categorize them by type (weapon, class, etc.) Even better, just get rid of the four limit and have all assignments active. If that’s too much to ask for at least have all the weapon assignments active and the CC ones you still can only have four.
Play Grind and Fortress, "Combat Under Pressure" is the play list, the squad leader powers are limited to air drops and smoke barrages.I came back so I could try out the new AT rifle and I'm so glad to see DICE have not learned a god damn thing about the assignment system or these tide of war objectives. They still require me to do things I have no control over or that force me to play in a way that I detremental to me and my team.
Right now I am stuck on the last part. "Get 10 smoke barrages as a squad"
Okay cool that's easy on paper, but how exactly am I supposed to do that when my squad leader is a selfish turd and uses all the points on artillery strikes and Rockets? What am I supposed to do when I can't find a squad that I can take over in order to do it myself?
I have been playing for 3 nights straight and I have a grand total of 3 out of 10 smoke barrages. Thanks Dice. So glad I came back.

Don't do that. Don't give me hope (well, three maps were promised before 2020. The fourth should be the first of 2020)https://www.reddit.com/r/BattlefieldV/comments/d1pxrr/bfv_data_mining_the_pacific_theatre_chapter_5_new/
Looks like we are getting four maps with the Pacific.
This weapon looks to be fun.
M3 IR Sniper Rifle
"The M3 features an infrared scope for improved sighting in low-light situations, as well as a suppressor for reduced muzzle report." (Ingame)
Yeah I know. It's all just a total mess and frustrating as fuck to do. I just wanna be able to play the game and get stuff like I could in 3 and 4. Yeah things got specific at times for certain things but overall you could basically get everything by just PTFOing. But not in V. Feels bad man.It's like the assignments are getting exponentially worse as they make more battlefield games. The ones in BF3-4 were a bit annoying and forced you to do a dumb thing, but it was a dumb thing for a short while like having to snipe someone off the radio tower or jump off a building into a swimming pool. Once dumb thing was done, you could go back to PTFO. The ones in BF1 and more specifically, BF5 basically almost need the planets to align to allow you to complete the assignments. Something as simple as kill 'x' people while attacking an objective is stupid because of how it was designed:
a) you need the base to be occupied, not just claimed by an enemy
b) you can't kill people while capturing the base, you have to let them get in the area and contest the capture for the kills to count. The assignments are littered with little things that force you to play against common sense. My teams objective overall is to NOT let them contest the capture but keep them off the objectives entirely until their tickets run out.
c) you cant kill them while they're holding the objective before you get into the capture area or yet again, it wont count.
All these little fucky things lead to people doing dumb things in order to do assignments, which they HAVE to do because they're tied to progression. I'll say at least the Tides of war things aren't as bad as the regular assigments because they do give you multiple paths. An easy long path or a short hard path. The alternate objectives in the assignments...ugh, those just don't feel good to do.
Now would definitely be the time for them to do it... BATTLEFIELD has never been in a weaker state than it is now.
First time I’m buying a CoD game since MW3. I really hope DICE and EA can pull off a Hail Mary save for BF5. If not, the next BF release really needs to shine if DICE wants to add new players to the franchise while keeping the existing community happy.
There are some ATVs on the maps, but the rest of the vehicles are killstreaks. So far I think it's just a Bradley Fighting Vehicle and helicopter.
For all of BFV's faults, and damn there's a lot of them, I've been under the impression that Activision has really gone off the deep end wrt monetizing their users. I can't see myself switching. However, I have little faith in DICE turning things around drastically, especially if facing increased competition.I think everyone expecting MW to replace BF in combined-arms gameplay is going to be "Fuck Activision" soon.
Just don't get your hopes up too soon, we have seen jack shit from the large MW mode and IT IS ACTIVISION, literally the evil twin brother of EA when it comes to fucking players over.
The open one is next week on all platforms.
