It looks as though Battlefield 1 will be changing up the way Conquest mode works, by returning to how the mode functioned in previous titles. In the last Battlefield 1 beta, points in Conquest mode were awarded whenever a player held points on the map, which was not a popular change according to the community. On a post concerning the matter on Dice’s official Website for Battlefield 1, Daniel Berlin, the lead world designer for the game, addressed this issue.
When talking about the new changes to Conquest mode, Berlin states that, “When we build a new Battlefield game it’s important for us to try new things, we want to stay fresh and renew the franchise with each new installment. However, it’s equally as important that we take the feedback that you, the community, are giving us. That is why we’re going to be making changes to the Conquest game mode ticket system for launch. The next time you play the game, capturing the objectives AND getting kills will both contribute towards the final score of a Conquest match. You have spoken, we have listened!”
Battlefield 1 is scheduled to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 21st of this year.
