Hello,

This wasn't originally my idea but I think its worth of develop it little and post here. As you know with new price policy many people can't afford to buy weapons and gaming "free weapons vs paid weapons" is quite unfair and boring.

As you maybe know too in unranked games widgets are free. With same idea example Tier1 weapons (150VP/day) would be free in unranked mode. This would lead that those who want have XP could play in ranked mode with all kind of weapons paid with battlefunds and those who want just have fun and enjoy game with balanced weapons without spending money would battle in unranked mode.

I made two very low quality pictures how system would work in real world:

Pic 1. How it should look like in your weaponbar/abilitybar:

Pic 2. How it should look like when you connect ranked game with expired weapon:

Pic 3. optional How it should look like if you would have to buy weapon:

Users & devs, comment what you like this solution for new prices and ability to enjoy this game!

good idea but there arent too many unranked servers it would be nice if the hours of the weapon only counts when u are in the game playing

I discussed with ShadeShooter and he advised me to do this and he would add it to his weekly report for other devs. So I just hope big support from community to show we really want this.

Btw, this idea is originally made by Nelis.

I would set our server right away to be unranked and I believe many other server owners would do same.

This would make everyone happy i belive.

+ with shadeshooter pressure it has bigger chances to be implemented, we just need many supporters.

only problem is that you would need a server browser to find unranked games cause matchmaking isn't connecting you to unranked servers...

BFH havn't had server browser ever and still people can play in server they really want with bookmarks. Just advertising in forums; example thread where admins can post their unranked servers and people can easy add those who look best etc. Community can take rest of the job if EA/DICE makes their part.

Actually the idea is superb!
In a non ranked game all players would be Level one,technically, s oyou could choose your one special Hero ability clothing - likewise: As it does not affect the gameplay you could either take clothes you use anyway, or you could run around with your default clothes.
There are up to 192 different avatars per side ( 16variants*4aspects*3classes - if I remember right )
On the "select Hero"-screen you could select if you want to play ranked or un-ranked - Or you could mark a hero to be an explicitely unranked Hero - Powergamers would surely love to pay for additional Hero-Slots, which they need anyways, 100% casual gamers can use all 4 regular slots for un-ranked heros.
Weapons for un-ranked games don't need to be the "stylish" variants - offer them to be bought, for those that simply like the looks, and leave the store for the clothes there, but give the basic versions of the different weapons to be selected - short range shotgun versus long range shotgun? Dynamite or RPG? More ammo - but less distance?
Having to decide which type of weapon is best for oneself is part of the fun.

Give everyone a 10-pack wrenches and a 10-pack healing per 3-game-row - or give no widgets at all - after all, soldiers can heal their teammates and tanks are disposable articles anyway. XD


So, Summarize:
1) Either a hero is created explicitely for nonranked-combat, or you can choose upon login with a hero to use the nonranked mode, switching over to a second Inventory for unranked mode, keeping your clothing and "stylish" versions of weapons.
2) Skip the stylish-versions of the weapons; let them, like clothes be still buyable to give EA a reason to implement the unranked mode, but let the players chose from the normal weapons which they want to use in their unranked outfit.
3) Give everyone a small amount of widgets that do auto-refresh each round, or none at all.

That's a well balanced and well thought approach?
