So EA announced that there would be an RPG element to your character in BF2142.
I just want to know what people would like to see from this RPG element involved in your charactre progressing through the ranks.

I myself am unsure on how they can do it, but i suspect they will probably limit some of the things you can do until you have enough time played or global points or something like that.
Maybe they will restrict what weapons can be used or who can use what vehicle?

Hopefully some of you guys can come up with some possible ideas that EA/Dice will use for this "RPG Element".

I'm still hoping BF2142 is a late April Fools joke.

RPG= Role Playing is Gay

i dont think they should do that...if you could chose your player skin (like Counter Strike) and then the different kits add onto that, that would be cool, but not anything progressive..then the "l337" players who play 21-hours-a-day would get uber armor and be able to completely own everything..not cool..

and clans would start having gay names like guild
also don forget:
-one or two casualties for long-term playing (5 days in a row).
-point and item farming bussines overseas.

I put on my robe and wizard hat.

Anyone get that reference?

If they add things like more upgrades to your gear and such, they will need to run separate servers for certain "level" players. Running around with a rocket launcher fighting noobs with super soakers makes no sense from a FPS standpoint. The other possibility is just to keep it at a "customize your look" deal, where you could add some badass shades, maybe grow a crazy beard and so on. I would appreciate some sort of license system for vehicles, where you have to qualify before you can enter a piece of equipment worth millions of dollars. Anyway, I hope they don't go overboard with this, we want a solid game first. My 2c.

they're implementing the RPG element in that you can customize yourself and specialize in certain kits and such. like you can specialize in certain types of combat. so the more experienced say medics get better junk then the people who specialized in sniper combat and decided to use the medic kit. it's just to make the players more individualized and something to work for... hence the RPG element. they've been experimenting with RPG elements in BF2 also, if you didn't notice. the rank system and unlock system creates an RPG style environment and mindset in some, which is why it created the stat padder problem, vehicle whores, etc.

Afro, yeah I saw that whole thing on Bash.org.

I dunno, the RPG element could be cool... I mean, it's not much of a step up from the rank and award system we have now I reckon.
I retain my outlook on BF2142 as "Cautious Optimism."

i don't think it's gonna be  like that.... -.-

that's a turn based RPG, and i doubt they're going to be implementing a turn-based system seeing is how this is battlefield...

wow, you guys are idiots, it means ROLE PLAYING ELEMENT, as in. prolly choose a character class (Spec ops, Assault, medic...) and so on, and you upgrade while you play online.

sounds like a great idea, i was hoping for a game like that, Ranks + unlocks + skills + character classes = FUCK YEA

When you get to the highest rank EA will give you a pre 1.2 n00b t00b with 10x blast radius and firepower.
