Hey guys. After hearing your discussion on BF3, I had a question I wanted to pose regarding EA going after MW3...
In terms of multiplayer, the Battlefield series has put a huge emphasis on teamwork, everything from the use of vehicles to gradually advancing towards objectives and coordinating with which classes each squad should roll out with. This applies both to attacking and defending.
The Call of Duty series, while can be approached in a tactical method, never really required such an approach. It is possible to have a rewarding experience both for self and for the team, thanks to the inclusion of killstreaks which are rewarded based on individual success.
Considering how multiplayer is the main draw for both games and the different approaches to that, did EA make the right move to incite a rivalry between the 2 franchises, or were they trying to market a game to an audience its not intended for?
