    I heard in an interview (the 14m one posted in the BF3 thread IIRC), that TDM is merely designed as a stepping stone for new people to get used to the game, not that bothered personally. Although you would expect a stepping stone would introduce all aspects of the game, so it is slightly weird there isn't a single vehicle.

    EDIT: To clarify, I would be very happy if there were a TDM mode with 64 players, but it isn't really a great loss IMO.

    TDM is designed to appeal to the CoD playing masses and, imo, isn't even true "Battlefield" gameplay.

    Conquest is where it's at.

    This doesn't bother me, Team deathmatch has always been a really boring game mode on multiplayer games and is really only for those that like to get the most kills on the entire match and 24 players is enough. That said I do look forward to 64 player conquest and seeing all us bit-techers playing together.

    God hear ya!! I really want to rush in an immense map with other 63 dudes, that will be epic... I like it with 32 players, I can't imagine how it could be with 64

    is the BF version of TDM the one where you run around in squads of 4? Or is it proper TDM with I assume faster spawn rates.

    If it is the squad version then 6 teams of 4 wont be too bad.
    I personally will be playing Rush and Conquest maps anyway. I will probably never even touch the single player game either :D

    Hopefully all the guys who just want to lone wolf and scream abuse into the mic will play this and leave the rest of us alone. I'm fed up with playing Rush with 20 guys playing recon sitting at the back screaming abuse when they lose...

    I was under the impression that Rush is limited to 32 players, even on PC. I haven't seen anywhere official that says otherwise.

    Fine by me! More than 24 TDM would be stupid anyway.

    64 Player Rush! Just saying it gives me the shivers!

    I can only imagine the anarchy that will ensue when you have a single MCOM left on the map! BRING IT!

    I've read else where that TDM Maps will be smaller and more intesnse. I'm all about the Conqeust and Rush maps.

    Unfortunately those shivers are all you'll get.

    List of confirmed gametypes:

    Conquest
    Conquest 64
    Rush
    Squad Rush
    Team Deathmatch
    Squad Deathmatch

    Only conquest will have 64 players atm.

    EDIT: @Wuyanxu below:

    Nope, 64 players only in conquest, rush is 32, though I think you get that judging by your final line, just typo'd.

    so it's:

    64: Conquest/Rush
    32: smaller conquest
    24: TDM
    16: SQDM
    8: SQRush


    would want larger maps for Rush though. Op Metro is really more suited to 32 players, 64 player on that map would be insane.

    to be honest, im fine with 64 player Conquest, no rush.
