Hardcore mode, custom games, rental servers and MASSIVE map changes in this latest news update for Battlefield 1 from DICE. We’ll detail and summarize the entire changelog here.
Battlefield 1 update is here and it is massive
Attacker maximum tickets are increased from 150 to 250. The amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders after capturing a sector is increased from 2 to 3. The amount of minimum ticket regained when capturing a sector in 64p Operations is increased from 30 to 50. Slightly reduced the time it takes to capture flags. This is for the 64 player maps.
Changes for the 40 player maps are slightly different. Attacker maximum tickets are increased to 200 from 150. The amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders after capturing a sector is increased from 2 to 3. Slightly reduced the time it takes to capture flags.
Next are the changes to Conquest. Two additional flags on the Suez map are added, giving it a total of 5 flags. 1 armored car is added for either team to spawn in their HQ. Reduced the size of the capture volumes on the flags located in the villages, old A & B flag. This is to reduce the amount of building interiors located within the capture area. The change should result in the flags being easier to capture.
You can customize your soldier from within the UI by selecting either the icon on Home or on Soldier. If the squad leader ignores requests for orders the leadership is transferred to another member of the squad. When a squad member requests an order (and there is no active squad order), the requesting player is added to the want-to-be-leader queue for that squad and a 60 seconds timer starts (the timer is not reset if there are other squad members waiting in the queue already).
