1st Person and 3rd Person Lobbies

I know that some people want 3rd person (including me) and some people don't care for it. What if you could choose what kind of lobby you wanted to play in? Maybe they have 1st person only lobbies and 3rd person only lobbies. What does everyone think?

    We can do that with server browsers!

    Oh wait...

    That's not happening because there won't be a server browser to customize your game. Personally, I think 3rd person is a cheap way to cheat because you have a more dynamic view even when objects should be obstructing your vision, but it's whatever

    It was just an idea. I loved the 3rd person on the first one. Doesnt even have to be a server browser. Could choose what you wanted before you chose the game mode, or even set to what you prefer.
  • Players were complaining about DICE when they splitted the playerbase with each DLC and playlist. Are you seriously seaching for new ideas to split it again? I love the 3rd person camera and Battlefront always had both perspectives which is in my opinion a great feature.

    They shouldn't even have 1st person really. You're giving yourself a massive disadvantage.

    Splitting would be the only problem I see with it. Its just a way for players to choose. 1st person and 3rd person is a huge different play style. I am all for them being including in the same lobby, but its a way for 1st person players to get their fun without being disrupted by 3rd person players sitting behind a corner.

    Maybe you should deal with it and the 3rd person camera is too close this time. At the end you will need 3rd person for the heroes, because of their fast movement speed and gameplay.

    Best way to have this is to implement a server browser.

    Haha I wont have to deal with it because Im a 3rd person player. Right now nobody will because you really dont have a choice for the pov. Yes of course heroes need to be 3rd person, but being able to choose as a soldier,I think, would help all around in player enjoyment.

    This, honestly. Segregation was a big issue for Battlefront I, let us not repeat those same mistakes.

    I would rather them include 1st and 3rd together. Segregation is the only problem I see with it. Other than that it would really help with player enjoyment. Being able to choose your play style seems like what the devs are all about this time around.

    I'm a fan of 3rd person. Original Battlefronts made me like 3rd person.

    I think the 3 red person looks great in the alpha, they did an excellent job IMO
    RIP Sig Gifs, It would be nice to have coruscant, and big offline content modes, and these heroes at launch:
    Prequel era : yoda, obi wan, Anakin, padme, maul, jango, dooku, grievous,
    Original era: Luke, leia, Han, chewy, Vader, palps, boba, bossk
    New era: Rey, kylo

    They are trying to not segment the community like they did in the current game. This would go completely against this. They will try to make 1st person and 3rd person equal instead.

    3rd person here all the way. Plus if there are different servers that are 1st and 3rd person only, it will just split the community up.

    Wait... you want separate server lists... for a transitory gameplay mode? From my time playing you could freely switch between first and third person views with the click of a button (console player). How would you segregate the two? Force people into one of the two modes without the option to switch back during play? Wouldn't that be imposing less options on how to play?
    Instead of being angry that people playing in third person have a broader view of the field and are able to pick you off faster, maybe adapt and be a little twitchier on ducking behind cover. Or maybe you can do the same against them and bring everything to equilibrium? I don't know, the idea of segregating servers based on how you want to play seems petty to me.
    There is a war in our stars, we should be able to choose which front we battle for.
  • Stupid idea to have separate lobbies. The whole point of this game isn't to splinter the player base, and with such a trivial thing as POV, that would be very unwise

    Battlefront has always been 3rd person. I enjoy being able to switch from 1st to 3rd anytime too see the difference. While I do believe 3rd has more advantages 1st still offers a wider range of view and better aim imo

    I didn't see any option to play in 3rd person in Battlefront 2. Only 3rd person with heroes, specials and that gun that turns in to a century. Main play did not have 3rd person. I would assume they will be adding the option in?

    **** idea to have separate lobbies. The whole point of this game isn't to splinter the player base, and with such a trivial thing as POV, that would be very unwise

    This. You press a damned button to change views. Is it really necessary to have a whole lobby for that?

    Have you seen 3rd person in the new one yet? I haven't... unless it was a hero, special, or that cool looking sentry turret. I would assume they will be adding it in? It is only an alpha.

    Far from it. 3rd person is more than a legitimate way to play the game.

    There is third person in BF2 EA.

    Nope I hadn't seen anyone play in 3rd person yet. I haven't played it yet and I haven't seen any gameplay in 3rd person so I wasn't sure. Others have told me it already is in 3rd so thats that lol

    Totally agree. While I don't play 3rd person unless forced to, I dont have a problem, except corner peekers. I can still beat 3rd person players because I expect them to be there and get a jump on their jump.

    I switch in and out. Particularly when I come across a spot to where my own head is in the way. Can't tell you how many times I'm sitting there thinking "you going to do something buddy? Get out the way!" Then realized it's just me.
