Scrap the Allies VS Axis faction system and use a theater system instead.

Battlefield 1 - Scrap the Allies VS Axis faction system and use a theater system instead.

Hello everybody,

I got an idea for DICE to create a more accurate faction system will keeping their main purpose, let me explain.

So in BFV, you are probably aware that there is only two faction, the allies and the axis (maybe soviet in the future). Those faction have the purpose of being a cosmetic pool so like that, if later they add some French cosmetic gear, you can use them in every map involving the allies, same for the Italians in the axis side,…

Well this system make a lot of sense for a live service game because it need to sell cosmetic. For example, if the Fins were added as their own faction but only got two map, nobody will actually buy their cosmetic and so it will be a waste of money. But with this system, just need to add some Finnish cosmetic gear in the axis and bam, people will buy them because they will play them in every map involving the axis, making their usage more common.

That's great… but not for a WW2 game, because the axis fought in Africa but the Fins didn't. So we have a problem and I might have a solution.

DICE, you should create cosmetic pool by theater, not by faction.

So instead of the Allies VS Axis, we could get 3 or 4 theater and depending of which army fought on those theater, you could choose and buy their cosmetic.

For example :

Western theater (1940 – 1945) :

Allies cosmetic gear available : Axis cosmetic gear available :
English and Commonwealth, French, American, Polish, Dutch, Belgian,… German and Italian

Eastern theater (1941 – 1945) :

Allies cosmetic gear available : Axis cosmetic gear available :
Soviet, Mongolian, Polish and Czechoslovak German, Italian, Romanian, Finnish, Hungarian,…

Pacific theater (1941 – 1945) :

Allies cosmetic gear available : Axis cosmetic gear available :
American, English and Commonwealth and Philippians Japanese and Siamese.
Read:  So while i feel this sub jas been abit pedantic lately... i am having a blast and i do nothing but actually play the game.

African and Mediterranean theater (1940 – 1945) :

Allies cosmetic gear available : Axis cosmetic gear available :
English and the Commonwealth, French, American, Greeks, Ethiopian (because why not),… German and Italian.

I think you get the idea.

So every map will be linked with a theater. At the moment Hamada and Aerodrome are the only map that could get into the African theater and the 7 other map are into the western theater.

The future Greek map would fit into the African and Mediterranean theater and the future soviet map into the eastern theater.

And to keep cosmetic lucrative, if for example I buy a full french cosmetic set, I could use it on every theater involving the french. which is still a lot of place.

And for the fins, we will still get them in Stalingrad but it's still more believable than Finnish soldier invading France.

How does it work in the cosmetic market ?

In the in-game cosmetic market it could work like that :

I want to buy an Adrian Helmet, the description of the object tell me that :

  • It's a french cosmetic gear.
  • I can use it for the allies on the African and Western theater.

How does it work with the company menu ?

The company menu could be divided in 4 sub-menu, each representing a theater of the war and in those sub-menu, you could personalize your allies and axis company.

What about flag in conquest ? which country it's suppose to represent then ?

Two option :

  1. The possibility to customize the flag you want to see in game
  2. Get rid of in game flag and just keep the capture zone, wouldn't change anything tbh.

Which language my company speak if I got a company full of Italian cosmetic ? German ?

I see two option here too :

  1. You can choose which language your company is speaking.
  2. The character have now different nationality and speak their own language.

I hope I was understandable, my English is far from perfect and I apologize for it.

Have a nice day and happy new year <3

Edit : Those table are shit, sorry
