Criminal s***, you have violated the law of Skyfield. And now will pay with XP or your blood. What is your choice?

Maybe you guys let the enemy cap flags so you don't spawn camp. Or just like points, like Mike . . . Scorex_VII

Note: I only played through the campaign once on hard on the first three days after release, and these scattered informations are what I recalls.

the PLR would be severely underequipped, underfunded and be wiped out at the beginning of every match. thats why they are not a playable team in multiplayer.

But since we were always in their territory, they would be outnumbering the opposition. They had MBTs, IFVS and jets and possibly helicopters to their disposal and could make fun gamemodes.

But don't worry! Aftermath will tell that tale.

But GTA has multi-ethnicity mass murdering, keeps things equal.




I'm not prejudiced, I kill everyone equally. lol

^ Yep, and campaign. They make good opponent materials. Maybe a survival mode against them, or maybe gamemode where PLR has more number but less arsenal against small amount of enemies with more arsenal.

An idea is an idea :/ but Aftermath sounds intriguing.

If i remember right the US & Russians wern't enemies at all in the game, they were both attempting the same exact mission and ended up fighting each other because of a misunderstanding or something...?

The enemies were always the PLR, *SPOILERS*(Solomen & Kaffarov). So i dunno what Dice were thinking with the multiplayer factions but they probably chose Russia vs the US because it's easier to understand.

They could at least have the PLR faction on Tehran highway!

How do you cover text with the black box??


Indeed, BF2 pitted NATO against the MEC and PLA. Maps were either United States against the MEC, or the United States against the PLA The expansion added in other NATO nations.

2142 had NATO become the European Union only, while China and Russia moved into the middle east, become the PAC.

It was the Bad Company series that had the Americans and Russians go to war with eachother.

...but that could only work if this was really Bad Company 3 rebranded as simply BF3 to draw in older fans...which is impossible right?

It just works better.
1. People like playing as Russians and Americans.
2. They are fairly on par in terms of military tech.
3. Neither side will ruffle feathers like others potentially will.

It is just easier having USA Vs. RU.
