I guess someone somewhere gets to decide what the word 'authentic' means and you get no say....

Really, where was that? That would be a big change from all other Battlefield games.

Funny, I could have sworn the executive producer for DICE and Battlefield stated...

Battlefield has never been authentic.

What is the proper definition of 'authentic' and what is your definition?  Authentic could just mean that a game has elements that represent as much as possible in a game world everything that was in that time and period it seeks to represent, but does not add to it elements that were not in said period of representation.  Right? So, if you judge BF1942 by this logic then it was an authentic game?

So basically you want to move the goal post so that 1942 passes it but V doesn't. 1942 had entire armies using weapons not used by that faction at all and completely wrong weapons for classes. If you move the authenticity goal this low then V passes it too - there's nothing in the game that wasn't there in the time period.

 

I wish people just stopped being upset about this, we're getting another Alpha test next week.

I'm not so sure that is correct to say entire factions using weapons not used by that faction. Give example?

 

On Wiki:

Weapons in Battlefield: 1942 are class-locked and faction-locked. The equipment for a class is known as a kit, and there is no way to change individual weapons in the kit . A kit is dropped upon death, and other players can pick up their kit. There are five classes in total:

    Assault: Uses LMGs and automatic rifles.
    Engineer: Uses battle rifles (mostly bolt-action, some semi automatic rifles).
    Anti-Tank: Uses an anti-tank launcher.
    Medic: Uses submachine guns.
    Scout: Uses sniper rifles (all bolt action, and all come with scopes).

Between the factions, many of the weapons are also statistically identical. Some weapons for some reason feature left-handed bolts.

But you proved my point there is different views in what 'authentic' is and means to different people.

Where did you get this from?  Is this for the game bf1942?  I seem to remember that when you played Russian on the Russian maps the Russians had their own mgs, and guns that only Russians had; that one Russian gun with the round bullet magazine holder on the Stalingrad map Machine_gun_DP_MON.jpg as wells as tanks and light armor vehicles, the even spoke Russian.  The German weapons were different from the Allies weapons ect...on the Battle of Briton map the Allies had all the aircraft of the British Allies and Germans had theirs.  All the factions had their own weapons on the maps modeled after those battles that took place there.

 

haha....did you even play bf1942?

Some of the kits had appropriate guns, but literally from the link you posted yourself above:

 

"The M1911 (just referred as "Colt") is the standard sidearm for all Allied forces. Its portrayal is highly inaccurate, shown as a double-action handgun, and firing from an eight round magazine."

"The Lee-Enfield No.4 MK I is the standard weapon for the US Army, British and Russian Engineer classes. A bayonet version is available in the expansion pack Battlefield 1942: The Road to Rome for the Allied Engineer classes. The US Army should be using the M1 Garand or M1 Carbine and the Russians should be using a Mosin-Nagant carbine."

"The Lee Enfield No.4 Mk.I(T) is the standard weapon for all Allied Scouts. This is highly incorrect, as it should only be available to British and Commonwealth soldiers; it also has a capacity of five rounds, half that of the real rifle. The American Scouts should instead be armed with scoped Springfield M1903 rifles and the Russian scouts should be armed with scoped Mosin-Nagant M91/30 rifles."

"The extremely rare Type 5, which never saw service, somehow replaces the equally incorrect Karabiner 98k as the standard weapon for the Japanese Engineer class. While it has the correct 10-round magazine capacity, it also has the very incorrect detachable magazine when it should be non-detachable and loaded with two 5-round Arisaka stripper clips."

"The M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle is the standard weapon for American, British, and Free French Assault classes. The Brits should be using the Bren as their main LMG and the French could use the FM 24/29 as they considered it superior to the BAR."

"The Panzerschreck is the standard weapon for all Axis Anti-Tank classes. While it's moderately logical for the Germans and Italians to use these weapons in the numbers they do (a better choice would be the Panzerfaust), things take a turn for the surreal when Japanese soldiers wield them during the Battle of Wake Island."

 

My last post about this, Battlefield never had authenticity. Look at any of the reviews too.
