DICE apologises for its silence on Battlefield 5’s TTK and adds more core playlists

After feedback from fans bemoaning recent changes to Battlefield V’s time-to-kill (TTK), the game is about to get a ‘core’ version of all its playlists, in which the TTK will be the same as it was at launch.

The news comes via an announcement from Dan Mitre, Battlefield’s global community manager, on Reddit. On behalf of developer DICE, Mitre apologises “for the silence over the last couple of days on the TTK topic. We’ve seen it’s been a big talking point and causing a divide in the community, which was never our intention. We have been listening closely to what you’ve all been saying.”

Global TTK in Battlefield V was slowed in a patch at the end of last month, as “we’re seeing players die too often/too quickly and get frustrated because of it.” In today’s post, Mitre elaborates that “the intent came from us observing that new players are having a very hard time with the game compared to our core players”. As a compromise, DICE offered a playlist running Conquest mode on the old ‘core’ settings, but Mitre says this was “clearly” not enough. So now every playlist gets a core mode, “giving you a clearer choice between new and old settings.”

 

Reaction on Reddit has been sceptical to say the least. The most upvoted reply essentially retorts Mitre’s point that new players are struggling with “well, duh”, while many self-professed newbies are saying the slower TTKs don’t actually help them. u/Zack_scholes says he’s struggling to get kills because “now it takes forever to put someone down”, while u/WantsToMineGold says “making everyone a sponge makes the game more frustrating for me”.

Mitre says we’ll learn early next week when the new core playlists will be added.

Hmm, so they will maintain a core playlist with TTK and the others without. Wonder how that will play out over time and if it is a sustainable model for them.
