    I get that EA is virtue signaling for brownie points on social media from people who are not the core audience but what does this mean for gameplay though is the characters hitbox smaller because they use pronouns or this character can run faster because of the use of pronouns or am I just overthinking it and this is just EA virtue signaling.

    EA really are tripling down on these crappy "specialist" aren't they.

    Hey EA lets go full Fortnite... just stick Lara Croft in the game and I'll buy it..... ohh no I know what they could do, just stick Apex Legends characters into Battlefield as purchasable "Specialists".

    Wanna score ever more brownie points, stick a Titan from Titanfall in Battlefield 2042 that you can run around in... people will actually orgasm for that.

    Absoultely gameplay relevant information.
    Usually things like that end like that one event in Fortnite where people were going to nearby town to buy throwable tomatoes to throw on screen or like in DBD where people wearing LGBT charms were prioritized targets up to a point where developer had strictly stated that this is a bannable offense (which on its way is interesting on how would you prove that you're prioritizing a player due to some specific intent).

    At this point is hard to comprehend what Dice is doing with battlefield.
    The game has so many problems, from gameplay to technical issues. But they are focusing on creating characters with some sort of personality, on a multiplayer game.
    And the worst part is that there are 5 of these characters, so every one on both teams are running identical models. Making it impossible to distinguish friend from foe, unless you look at the color of the dot on top of character.

    Ubisoft did something similar with Rainbow Six Siege, but they had specialist unique to each side.
    And each side could only pick one of each character.
    This not only made each side unique, but also made each team to consider how synergies would apply.

    But BF 2042, would need at least 64 unique specialists for each side. But that is obviously too much.
    It would mean a lot of work to make so many unique specialists.
    So they make each specialist available to all. Resulting in a cluster***k of identical soldiers in each side.

    Ubisoft was able to make the specialist system work in RSS, and with it, sell micro-transactions.
    EA and Dice wanted to copy the idea, but without the understanding of what makes it work in RSS.

    Honestly speaking if you play as it then you don't see the characters face, so...

    It looks like a bad model from a PS3 game.
    This was in BF3. But somehow, they managed to make a worse model in 2021, with machines that are several times more powerful.

    Leak of the next specialist for BF 2042 :D

    How are we meant to be immersed while shooting gun if we can't see the face of a fictional video game character that we are playing as!!

    @Horus-Anhur Silly Battlefield 3 soldier, I bet they even identify as Male.. pfft

    Having now seen a few of these "Specialists" It's like the people who made the models for Andromeda are making the models for 2042....

    Actually this might be one of the most picked characters.
    Her ability is basically a wallhack. When activated she can see the counters of all enemies in her surroundings, through walls and objects.
    It's like cheating, but you pay EA, not some weird guy in China.

    Imagine playing a Battlefield, with strategy and skill. Then someone pulls this crap...

    Amazing how this game went from one of the most anticipated games of the year into a meme in the space of less than a month.

    I still have some faith and I look forward to seeing what state the game launches in but it's looking a lot like I'll be grabbing this from a Christmas sale like I did with BF5.

    I remember those days, damn they were awesome. The real sad part is that it's not just shooters, it's all genres getting more and more dumbed down, nobody taking "risks", everybody just copying each other, and even worse is the trend of getting mobile gaming (the absolute cancer of gaming) gimmicks into desktop games.

    Sure there is the occasional gem, but it's in a sea of crap. Sad times indeed, and no it's not rose tinted glasses I'm afraid.
