New details about Battlefield 4 commander selection process
We were pleasantly surprised when DICE unveiled the new Battlefield 4 commander feature. And even more surprised when it turned out that the Commander didn’t count towards the 64 players, so in effect, Battlefield 4 supports 66 players.
But a few questions arose with a system like that: how do players apply to be Commanders, and what happens when a Commander is kicked out by his team? Does he get booted off the server? Apparently, he does.
DICE answered some of the questions via Twitter regarding the Commander selection process, saying that players will have to queue in Battlelog to be Commanders on a team. In fact, it won’t be based on rank like in previous version (BF2/2142). In Battlefield 4, you simply join the Commander queue in Battlelog and wait to get picked.
If a Commander isn’t doing a good job, squad leaders will be able to initiate a vote to kick the Commander off the team and replace him with someone else.
The Commander in Battlefield 4 will be playable on tablets such as iPads, which will connect to a game server with no need for a PC or games console. The Commander feature will be supported on all platforms.
