Why do I ask? Great question! The answer is that development of the next version of America’s Army is underway and our Development Team wants your input!

Tell us what you think the game needs, or maybe doesn’t need. Were previous versions of AA missing a key feature? Was there something in the game that should be improved? Remember, the comments you post here can have tremendous influence in the design and development of the game.

If you ever wanted to let the Dev Team know your thoughts and truly have a chance to affect the future development of America’s Army, now is the time. AA Developers will be closely monitoring all posts and actively engaged in this topic, so make sure you watch this topic closely.

Now let the discussion begin!

Ok, so who’s going to be the first to ask for knives?

What i like to see in the next version is:

Training needed to play online.
The different mos enabled.
2nd medic mos enabled.
Some more maps to play on.
More advertisement for the game we need more players.
The weapon roles are fine as they are.
I like that everybody can be medic and i like the way you must help your buddy.
A better tracker of your stats like in the old days with AAOtracker.com
Somthing must be done to fix the unwanted mouting of things instead of giving medic.
Being able to see the stats of your last sessions like obj and k/d ratio, session time etc.


Also i liked the SF training in AA2 it was very hard, it feelt
real good completing that training, and i liked the silencer
with the SF weapon.

Also no respawn in multiplayer games.
Also with the co-op servers no human against ai agaist human
but just ai against humans.

Vehicles are only needed for transportation. Dont make
the new game like BF3.

Just what i think.
Regards Coolice

Im not surprised at all... I think its an indication of the Devs being just as disappointed as we are...they put a lot of time and effort into each patch and still cant manage to undo what unfortunately has been done from the get go.. Its probably easier just to start over.

Cant wait.. with that in mind...

- Keep the medic system, its a huge part of AA
- keep the realism
- keep the same type of game feel
- Improve graphics/ detail .. never mind these guys with their old PC's wanting to play today's games.
- improve smoothness
- mission types must stay, new ones are welcome
- obviously NO RESPAWNING !!
- you mention knives, I like Melee its different and on the same page
- must see players Pings !!
- some destructive environments?!? not overdone but some
- AK47 back.. loved that as an enemy gun
- Hospital as one of the first maps.. give old AA players what they've been missing
- I think a lot of the achievements are nonsense, could get rid of a lot.. but Hawkeyes must stay.. heck if you eliminate all achievements.. Hawkeyes must stay !!! MUST

I dont think AA3 is that far off.. just improve it, and if AA4 is what it takes then were game.

Separate Question: Does this affect the future on AA3 patches? I would assume so

I don't think many are surprised. You've done what you can with AA3, but it can't be saved. Before I contribute, can I ask what it is being developed on and what it might be called? I hope that I can find the time to get deep into this.

Things to Add
Training required before entering multi-player.
Server rank filtering (like AA2)
Priority players (Server owners/Clan members)
Ping/Latency (instead of a number maybe a meter)
A minimum of 10 maps upon release with 1-2 additional per month
Expected milestones (feature release dates)
Let the game handle gaming and provide a data portal (website) to provide the stats
Tournament/league/ladder/Clan skirmish scheduling via web portal.
A new forum dedicated to only the active game
Map making tool (successful maps updated and included in the game after approval from devs)
Community events
Team logos on uniform/helmet or something creative like that.
Civilians
Animals?

Things not to Add
I do not want to see any sort of re-spawn feature in multi-player

Things to consider
Performance should be #1 priority
Heavy community interaction on the development this time around
Graphical improvement
More frequent intermittent patches
AA has managed to separate itself from other games in terms of actual game-play. Don't lose that touch by following the lead of other games.
Drop support for AA3 all together and invent an assist type program for the last version of AA2. Then just focus on rolling out an impressive game for AA4?!?

Number One: Tell us what you're doing! If you tell us that AA4 is being made and we don't hear anything until Christmas, you will have more rage than ever before. BTW, by "new version" do you mean AA4 or AA3.4?

Hooah,great news.

Just make this new Game more difficult.Like back in AA2. Get a good Hit detection,kill this stupid running around. Focus on a more tactical gameplay. Like in AA2,in a match f.e you couldnt run in alone and do the job.You had to be smart in a team.In AA3 you barely use the brain.....

Edit: Get rid of steam!!!! You are the army....you really need them? Let people download it the "normal" way and do the statstracking on your own. With that said :

Give us please reliable statistics of our gameplay. please ;)
