Two weeks ago DICE’s latest installment in their first person shooter, Battlefield V launched and everyone hopped straight to the multiplayer lobbies to experience WWII with their friends. But similar to the beta prior, players discovered that the tendency of dying was fairly quick which became a bit of an nuisance. In response to the request to tweak both the TTK (time-to-kill) and TTD(time-to-die), DICE has revealed that an update is on the way to fix the problem.
In a Reddit post, Global Community Manager Dan Mitre states that the studio plans to try balancing the two forces to bring a more fair experience when playing online.
The first experiment we want to run is a TTK change that we will be closely measuring soon. This TTK experiment may take the following shape but may change as we’re still investigating how to approach. It may be proposed to players in-game by rolling out the new TTK changes globally to all players connecting to any server, while adding a new playlist accessible through the server browser where players can play the old (or as it is, current) TTK to compare the two experiences.
As the post is only a “sneak peek” at what’s to come in the upcoming update for the game’s multiplayer portion, it is reassuring to know DICE is listening to bring smoother gameplay for those who have been affected by the setback present in the game.
Battlefield V is out now for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4.
