THE BUZZ: It has been revealed that the Command (Commo) Rose will not be functioning in the upcoming Battlefield 3 beta.
The Commo Rose is a feature that was first introduced in Battlefield 2 and is confirmed to be making a comeback in the PC version of Battlefield 3. By holding the “Q” button, the rose is brought up, displaying several options around a ring containing the “spotted” option. These allow you to quickly send messages to your teammates simply by clicking one of them. It was implemented as a quicker way for team members, without mics or headsets, to communicate with one another.
Daniel Matros, Community Manager at Dice revealed the information on Twitter. When asked by a fan if the Commo Rose would be returning he replied:
“Not in the beta but on launch.”
EGM’s TAKE: Although the decision to disable the feature may annoy a few fans, it won’t drastically impact the beta.
