Would You Trade the Eye Candy for...

Let's assume for a moment that DICE has completely maxed-out computing resources on both gaming consoles. Would you trade-in the eye candy to make room for other features? If so, what specifically would you trade? For what?

For example, I would trade particle effects for more playable vehicle types.

Or texture detail for AI improvement, such as scripting and animation for flanking and taking cover.

I don't want to get too bogged down in technical details of which specific resources are used to manage specific assets, but I understand if that discussion comes in to play. Although my intention is to have more of a creative discussion, regardless of what is or isn't technically possible.

I look forward to feedback.

    1. Texture detail, particle effect and grafics in general are rendered in client's computer and have no impact on server performance. you can just lower your settings.
    2. more vehicle types has no effect on performance not client side not server side.
    3. your post makes no sense from tehnical perspective
  • PC player here, would never trade the graphics for anything else.
    Call me shallow, but the game doesn't lack any (for me) important feature.

    :/
  • To me is. Fun over graphics.

    It doesn't matter if the game looks gorgeous, if it lacks features to make it fun, it's basically dull. Video-games are supposed to be fun over everything else, not graphically realistic.
  • I'd sacrifice chewbaccas fur texture...

    Oh wait.... everyone peed and moaned when they did just that

    Most players will never be pleased
    Don't even bother asking
