Last week, DICE rolled out a patch for Battlefield 5 that increased the TTK values. According to the developers, this was done in order to attract more gamers to it however the game’s die-hard community was not happy with that change. And after a huge backlash, DICE has decided to revert those changes to their original values.
“Our intent with the TTK changes was to see if we could evolve the Battlefield V experience and make it more enjoyable for new players, whilst also making sure the Battlefield vets have a choice with a more “core” experience suiting their preferred play-style” said DICE and continued:
“It’s important to acknowledge that we have a challenge bringing new players into Battlefield V and onboard them to become more experienced Battlefield players. It’s been a challenge across our games for a long time, as many will know, and becomes even more important for us to improve upon our post-launch experience with consistent updates to the game through the Tides of War. Our desire to service a game that caters to old and new players will continue. How we get it right isn’t easy, nor will it be quick, and we appreciate when the community comes together and helps us on this journey.”
The team concluded that later today, at 4am PT / 7am ET / 1p CET, it will roll out a new server patch that will revert the TTK changes to their original launch states, it will remove the “Conquest Core” playlist, and it will not introduce any new “Core” playlists.
This will be a server-side update, meaning that players won’t have to download anything!
