The Hardcore Servers are aimed at the elite players that enjoy a good challenge. Depending on server settings, you may end up without the assistance of mini maps, no crosshairs, or you may not be able to spot enemies. These server options can change how the game is played in a very challenging way. No mini map will give you no clues as to where enemies are firing from. This will also leave you blind from vehicular ambushes. Roaming the battlefield without crosshairs can severely affect your accuracy with any weapon. Losing the ability to spot enemies may be quite tedious and you may find yourself accidentally shooting your teammates.
The Hardcore Servers were part of the massive Fall Update, which went live on November 15. The update includes numerous bug fixes, User Interface changes, map fixes, as well as weapon and gadget balancing. Big changes for the Suez Conquest layout have also come out of the update. Two flags have been added to the map, making a total of five flags, to give a little more balance. The capture radius for the flags on Suez have also been reduced. DICE’s full patch notes for the update can be found here.
The update, as well as the option for Hardcore Servers, are live now across all platforms. What do you think of the update? Are you elite enough to take on the challenges of the new server mode?
