With the spring season behind us, it’s time to head into the 2015 summer season of ESL One Battlefield 4. However, the upcoming season will be different from the others as the tournament will be making a switch to a new Battlefield 4 mode: Squad Obliteration.
What is Squad Obliteration?
In Squad Obliteration, teams fight over control of a bomb which can be used to destroy enemy M-COM stations. Teams have three M-COM stations which have to be protected from opponents, and a match is over when a team loses two M-COM stations. This new game mode will enrich competitive Battlefield 4 gameplay as teams will be forced to take a more tactical approach to both defending their stations and being offensive in order to secure objectives.
