Battlefield 2042 is lastly getting a correct scoreboard. Digital Arts introduced over the Battlefield Direct Communication Twitter account that the three.3 replace, anticipated to reach someday subsequent month, will embrace a “refreshed scoreboard” that may showcase how gamers are performing throughout a whole server.
Gamers have been demanding a greater scoreboard since Battlefield 2042 launched. The issue some gamers have, as we explained in November, is that the present scoreboard does not paint an entire image of what is taking place within the match: It reveals squad rankings, together with kills, assists, and revives, however particular person participant data outdoors of your squad, which was introduced in scoreboards from earlier Battlefield video games, is not displayed.
We theorized that the absence of particular person information (outdoors of squads) was an try to chop again on toxicity and harassment: It is exhausting to blast different gamers for his or her efficiency if you do not know how they’re performing, in spite of everything. Eliminating public efficiency stats is also a method to encourage extra teamplay.
Whatever the intent, although, it was an unpopular determination: Many gamers prefer to know the place they stand amongst the gang. This new scoreboard will give everybody a clearer image in that regard, besides the response to the mockup shared at the moment has not been overly optimistic.
Scoreboard will obtain additional updates past this refresh – this isn’t a one and accomplished deal for usExpect to see us iterate on this additional as soon as it’s dwell in recreation, and we look ahead to your suggestions as soon as this new Scoreboard goes dwell in FebruaryJanuary 19, 2022
EA mentioned this isn’t the ultimate design of the scoreboard, and that “additional updates past this refresh” will probably be launched sooner or later, however that did not impress gamers on this Reddit thread: A number of posts criticize the absence of data together with participant deaths and pings within the server-wide scoreboard, and the “cluttered” design that jumbles all gamers collectively in a single itemizing quite than splitting them up into separate groups.
“As anticipated, an actual scoreboard as requested however not the scoreboard we needed,” Narvak wrote. “Why not separate participant listing by groups? In case your group is dropping you’ll in all probability get a worst rating than the successful group so you’ll be on the backside of the listing even in case you are among the many the highest of your group.”
“It seems to be like an Excel spreadsheet,” Materbater69 famous.
The Battlefield 2042 3.3 replace is at present anticipated to go dwell someday in “mid to late February.” Forward of that, the three.2 replace, set to go dwell tomorrow, will make modifications to Battlefield Portal’s XP system, and usher in a brand new batch of efficiency optimizations. EA mentioned that matchmaking preferences within the All-Out Warfare mode and all-platform VOIP are “nonetheless on our radar,” however it will not have any data on these to share till “additional down the road.”
