  1. Spawn timers need a increase all around. Spawning on players is pure cancer. Kill the same dude several times having to burn the infection known as a squad out till their is no trace left for the disease to fester again. Should of never added spawn on squad lead into the game in the first place. The map isn't even that big to warrant needing it people were just lazy. This game surpassed not being uncasual a long time ago. No aim is really needed, killing players is unchallanging, death is meaningless, spawning is too convenient to where it hurts the gameplay, and cheese is a stable of the game. You keep making the game more and more easy to where its not even casual anymore its just meaningless to even try in the game anymore. Main reason I stopped enjoying to game is because instead of being less casual the game got way too casual. The skill ceiling keeps getting lowered to the point that you dont have to work on getting better at the game anymore even when killing players was a very casual experiences in the first place.
  2. I asked for them to delay controls instead of a hard counter. Jammers are mainly a excuse to include cheese into the game. Quas is OP its, ok use a jammer. UAV is bad for the games skill ceiling and fair play, its ok jammer, Sitting in the spawn using a helo drone, its ok jammer. Jammer isnt fun or interesting at all it. Dont rely on it to balance the game when it should be balanced with out it.
  3. Weapon diversity was already bad already because it the narrow room you have to work with. Low TTK games will favor high RoF when every weapons kills in 3 to 4 hits. You wither ran AK15 or beryl for damage or you ran the M416 if you were hipfiring with lots of ADAD strafing. 7,62 nerf was good it was pretty dumb to keep the damage so high along with even raising the limb damage multiplier in the first place. Need to lower the damage of every gun so the guns have room to be different and you can have lower RoF doing more damage be balanced in TTK to High RoF weapons with lower damage. Bolters are too powerfull but if you make the require two chest shots to kill with how fast ARS kill players then they will be to weak to be viable as you dont have the time to hit a head in .38 seconds. I use the Toch over the g29 for the only reason of its still oneshots players the same as the G29 and I was using it back in .3 days of giving me a handycap, no reason now to change it. 5 BTK though the chest would be great but the armor doesn't cover the outside of the chest which is a big issue for the gutshot problem because a lot of the time they are hitting you not in the gut even when the kill screen says they did. Need to make the armor cover the vitals and then the chest out side of the vitals would give no advatage of shooting them instead of the armored centered chest. Why aim for the head when 3 gutshots still kill, even if headshots are 2 hits to kill a less then .1 of a second difference in how long it takes to kill a person doesn't matter if its before the human reaction time.
  4. If you hit the drone, with ammo count nerf you will run out of ammo fast. Having the heli vs average infantry balance should be a staple not hoping some one can hit the drone and kill it for you. UGV takes 100 rounds to kill and the heli takes almost the same amount but is much faster and harder to hit. It can run back to base very easily and doesn't really have to worry too much. Also sitting inside your base farming players is kinda BS. What happened to no aircraft in WW3 because they were always broken in BF games. Jamming is a bad mechanic doesn't add to anyones play of the game. Rellying on jamming as a excuse poor balance and cheesy content as in loitering ammo and other CoD style free kill call ins.
  5. I dont think your CQB theory willl work out that way. I remember back to .3 ammo bugs which got people to run ammo box instead of health then seek out teammates with health. Its made the game a bit more interesting and you know cared about teammates and I did go out of my way to guard a newb who had the health because he didn't know about the ammo bug. It was hard to get health from a lot of these players who only had it because it was default. Im for a lower ammo pool because running around mindlessly farming bad players in a casual game gets boring but the problems I see with lower ammo are dealing with UGVs. UGVs take 100 rounds of ammo to kill from a single player, If a player cant kill a UGV even with the long time it takes to kill then they could just roll over single players and then go back to repair. Bigger issue is will a player want to expend some of their ammo to do partial damage to a UGV when they dont have enough ammo to kill it or enough ammo left over to fight against other players. After that the Helo is a huge ammo wasters. takes near 100 rounds to kill if they hit so players will not want to deter the Helo when there rapidly decreasing ammo pool is getting wasted to deter the hello from farming players. Similar to not wanting to shoot the UGV because it will leave you with little to no ammo. Im fine with the ammo reduction in either way. Go ahead. You could start players out with full ammo if they spawn at homebase or at the start of the match as if they came into the battle fully kitted but started to run out of ammo. Would add resupply streaks as the streaks ingame are not really fun and somepeople enjoy the shooting over vehicles. I also dont expect a Helo to stop trying to kill people to give us ammo like how it is for people running around with the ammo bug who hog it to them selfs because giving other people ammo means they will compete with you for kills. Thats onething I notices in .3 people hogged their ammo bags and plenty of time Ive heard people say they didnt want to give other players ammo because they would get less kills if the teammates had ammo. Trying to make a reason for everything isn't a good way to go about it. Like trying to make a reason to use burst when there isnt a real life reason and burst weapons are hard to handle IRL and in games because of having to guess and control the sudden recoil is harder then expecting a continuous recoil that you control. Burst on m16s are used for a shotgun effect with a squad firing all at once to area targets 800m out against groups of people or lightly armored vehicles outside effective range shooting a target. Its a area of effect concept. For the 10 rounders just because you can have them and you do doesn't mean you need to try or can and make them viable. The only reason to use 10 rounders in IRL is to be a smaller target while prone and you usually are using a semi auto sniper with a 20 rounder. In WW3 aiming doesn't matter so making you self a smaller target is not going to have a better effect and going prone makes you a unmoving target even if you are smaller. Having the smaller the mag the faster you ADS and switch weapons along with what would be hard to put into the game of being lower prone profile would be the best choice. I dont see a reason to have the 10 rnders in the game. 20s make some sense and you can make them really fast at reloading, switching, and, or ADSing. Should really lower the weight of everything so we can carry multiple weapons again. Have the weight come from the gadgets. IDK when you guys are if you are still going to let use choose 2 gadgets but no reason to use most gadgets if you are running out of ammo because then people will ony carry ammo with a few medics around here and there. You can even have it to were you can choose the ammo kit twice to lower the cool down and lengthen it for if you caryy only one ammo pack. Adding weight to gadget then allowing us to carry two could let players equip a firstaid kit to the secondary slot for low weight but it will have a long cool down for being secondary. Players then might have to wait a minute for the health but have a way to not be too reliant on having to run health. So primary gadget carries two expendable gadgets, and has a modest cooldown of the refreshing gadgets. The secondary slot allows long cool downs and one expendable so you cant dabble with having one c4 or if you want 3 c4 you put it in both slots. Then weight will punish you for being greedy. I liked when the weight system punished greed instead of preventing players from using items.
  6. Battle bots are easymode but jammers are pressing a button counter something isn't adding anything to the game. Jammers dont really add interaction to the game, saying they have a cost just make its Rock Paper Scissors game situation where one thing counters another in a circle instead of bringing player interaction. Having optics to shoot out makes battlebots less of a ammo waste where you have to spend 100 rounds to kill it. Slowing down vehicles is the right call if they are tanky, add a APS to the Battle bot along with optics to shoot out and possible mobility kill options along with weak points for infantry weapons so you dont have to spend all you ammo to kill a BB. Would make interacting with them more then press 6,7,8, or 9 or expend most of your ammo to kill it. Jamming should be a hindrance not a hardcounter if they are in the game at all even if drones are easymode. Also add that UGVs only take 1 damage per bolter shot. You can make 7.62 do 1.2 and bolters do 3-5. Spraying down a UGV with 100 belt fed rounds that takes 10 seconds or 15 for ARs who reload and then doing 1 damage every 2 seconds with a bolter is a why even try moment.
  7. mines irl break the tracks instead of out right destroying tanks.
  8. The blur is nothing more then a annoyance. Dont get hurt or we will annoy you. No need for it just makes the game worse it diesnt help anyone out. A simple darkening around the edges gets the point across to people that they are hurt no need to make the game more annoying. I rember back un .1 adding a red affect was brought up and turned down now they add it into the game for no reason.
  9. I got more kills with arty before the deay was taken away. If you want a realism argument arty takes several seconds if not a minute between sending the order and landing hits. a better argument arty should be area of denial not what you kill with. Making streaks utility instead of free kill generators makes the game less shallow. You can at least have a delay in letting the enemy know there is arty in coming the same with jdams. instead of the enemy knowing as soon as the strike is called they know as the jdam is inbound with less time to react. Arty can be a bigger area as well to properly be a area denial while jdams are more like percison stikes
  10. Right now all the mercy spawns are just farms for the winning teams. All players can enter and in cases I could stand still in one spot and melee players in the back as they spawned in to show how bad it is. More of hindrance then a advantage. The way it works is when a winning team has taken all objectives they wait to see which mercy spawn is being used by watching for which objectives are being flipped. Once we see it being flipped kill hungry players with out a fight swarm to the location and farm it. We can walk into the location and sit a corner and camp. If a player is killed the first time same on us if they do it again shame on them go spawn in the safezone. The real issue is that players are new and will look for the most convenient spawn to get to a fight so they will keep spawning till you as a enemy tell them to stop. There is a issue as well that the mercy spawns pose risk to the winning team as the spawners there will snipe and harass the winning team from the spawn causing the winning team to need to push in and kill them. The farming will go on till one smart player spawns at the main base goes to the other side of the map to take a objective as the winning team is busy farming the mercy spawn. This usually happens a couple of times in one match when the teams are unbalanced. Right now only one mercy spawn gets activated and a way to alleviate the farm is to make both spawns available so the wining team will get spread out to two potential farms/fights. Could also make one of the spawns available when the losing team has only one possible objective spawn. If .6 comes and people who are new and bad at the game start getting crushed then farmed because the other team has a squad on VoIP who has been playing the game for a long time they will complain a lot then quit. Happened today with a lot of newplayers got on then got farmed because they didnt know how to play and avoid getting farmed by better players in a onesided match. -above is the only short term solutions here- Longer term solutions is to make them spawn outside of the map in a zone where the losing team is not counter out of bounds but the winning team would be. The current locations of behind the bus and pillars near A1/A2 on Warsaw, the museum on Warsaw, the park on Berlin then enclosed area near C2 on Berlin, and the two opposing spawns in the C1-C2 area are all very known and bad spots. There is not a good place to put them in the current borders of the map but you can make spots for them out side the map. -- Some of the objective spawn is also very bad. The locations people spawn in put players into situations of playing whack a mole with players aprearing in spots fighting is going on in. --Berlin A1 spawns Utillity hallway spawn- This hallway is a very traveled route to the A1 objective and is the shortest way from B1-B2 to A1. Many times have Ive had players spawn right in front of me in the hallways and in the room. Usually in front of me. Completely unfair for them as they spawn into a situation that would be very disadvantageous for them to respond to. Completely immersion breaking for those who care for that and very boring when you get kills from clubbing seals. (A very bad spot) Also a issue when you are pushing into A1 and have people spawn behind you when realistically that route wouldn't be available to a enemy or if you are trying to recover/ reload and cant shoot them in time after they spawn. / better spot would be across the road in a series of open cargo container like on Moscow. The long hall spawn- Less of a issue but it does occur that players spawn infront or behind a player pushing into the a1 from the long hall near the hand statue. / maybe a room upstairs players can spawn in then jump down through the ceiling their will alternate hole inthe wall leading to the outside street. Behind the counter- Ive gotten many kills when a person is spawned there as we just taken it. B1 spawns Craters - people kinda far from the spot and if tanks are around your are in trouble. Not much cover if players are taking B1 but not very fair since you are coming from a location they could of cleared before. b2 spawns broken buildings - not that bad, but still flank route leading to happening on the occasional spawnkill C1 spawns The hall on the first floor behind the reception desk- A horrible spot, This spot is a safe point for pushing into C1 by attackers and is a very used spot in general. Many times pushes into C1 cause this spot to be farmed for kills. You can even stand at the back of the hall and shoot spawners in the back. Many times pushing into c1 I have ended up in a mosh pit of spawning and respawning opponents leading to very crud fights. This spot usually leads to continual respawns and farming of a whack a mole minigame till some one goes upstairs. /some rooms down the hall going to the bottom courtyard of C1 to spawn in or some 2nd/3rd stories rooms to spawn in to jump out of. Pillars upstairs- still a bad spot, end of most of the time having to kill a person who spawned here but they usually stop once the objective starts ticking. C2 spawns Tunnels near C1 - A used route to get to C2, killed a bunch and I mean a bunch of spawners here on my way to C2. Forced me to sit there and farm the spawn since they would come up behind the player moving to C2 if they did not. Several spawns in one line of sights a player can aim down the hall and farm. / more possibility for spawns by adding rooms in the tunnels. -- Warsaw A1 spawns The spawn behind the Hesco wall- Very well known and leads to easy kills or people throwing gernades to hear a yell to tell if a player has spawned. Fish in a barrel. better to not spawn here. A2 spawns Halls - Ive killed a couple of people spawning here out of mid air when flanking. / more in the court yards. C1 spawns Tarps- not as bad since most people stay on objective but you can stand in the back if some one is taking it. Columns- Out of way, not too bad. C2 spawns Tunnels - not traveled a lot but a farm occurs from time to time. similar situation to Berlin C1 tunnels. The wall on the corner- It's a place people use for cover assaulting b2, at times after clearing you can get shot in the back. -- Moscow There ok but C2 spawn has issues with the hesco spawn providing very poor cover. I would say that over all in this game you will experience encounters you shouldn't have to prepare for or for situations that you cant prepare for with the spawning. But it doesn't have to be this way. Never have spawn killing issues in Insurgency because the players spawn in safe zones. Also no players spawning on top of each other to take away from the combat. Squad Game has some spawn issues because of people exploiting to shoot into bases but they have safe areas to spawn at main and logistics to transport people to the battle. The rally points in squad work very well and leave it up to the player to pick a good spot based on the situation. The habitats for spawning at FoBs work very well also since they are protected and over plenty of cover with the players choice of placement. Have a lot less spawn killings in Planetside 2 because you spawn either in a spawn room, or onto defended area near a sunder (even then you get a couple spawn kills before its destroyed), or onto a spawn beacon which allows you to drop pod into the game, or finally on to a spawn pad which is placed like a rally point in Squad Game. Rising storm had the VC tunnels There's no need to have situations were players spawn infront of each others as enemies. Would suggest adding spawn rooms as bunkers or pillboxes onto the map influenced by the control of the objectives. Similar to planetside two were a area is taken the spawnroom will flip. Would also have RMCS repairable after some time has past since the match started and each time they are destroyed so players can get out of the spawnroom. Or you could have two opposing pairs for each point. Plenty of area to put them and it would make the game more orderly gameplay with out spawn farming. Use Moscow C area for a example you can have two bunkers attached underground covering each other where they spawn to the team last in control of the region (who controlled both points last) with a oneway hatch on each pair of the bunkers. Example for the city such as C1 Berlin would be open up some of the rooms and connect them with tunnels or internal hallways so the spawners have two routes to counter attack and a small window to check to see if leaving is safe or to shoot back/throw smoke. This could tunnel to the C2 subway as the route there. It will cost a bit of programmer and map designer time but in the long term it will fix a lot of the spawn issues while providing non chaotic spawns that degrade the gameplay. It is not interesting or enjoyable to spawn in on a player to get shot down or to farm a player you spawned ontop of another or to spawn on objective for the same to occur. Its very frustrating for new and bad players who are losing to keep dying to bad choices that only hurt the game for both sides. Already happens a lot where players spawn on top I would also resuggest squad rally spawns with a short radars for squads only and with .6 showing deaths on screen it will give players enough info to make a choice to spawn on the rally creating a sense of logistics and routes of enemy advance instead of having random people spawn in areas that would defy natural logic such as spawning a room already cleared. People mention Tatics a lot but this game is not so conducive to tactics with how chaotic and spammy the spawning makes it. You check a route only to have enemies come from it later when they should not have or the fighting because shooting down people who appeared from mid air and mulitplaying players creating unplanned situations. Long post because spawns have been Very bad for months with no fix and are getting worse in .6 @Morp
  11. You can turn down the camera shake a lot in the settings. The game feels a lot better after this. Im not sure what the setting is named off the top of my head.
  12. Asked for this a long time ago. I dont know how well it will work after playing the game for so long the mechanic would be weird but not bad with how the game is. I see a lot of camping happening when they use the door opening to alert them making easy targets for the enterers. In reflex game like this the advatage would be too far in favor of the camper.
  13. Been playing PTE, I think voip is somewhat in but I never hear it even after several hours back on .6.3 I would change the voip key away from the quick radio key as well. I see issues of hotmicing when you try to use the quick radio,
  14. Cover use mechanics arent a bad thing but it would be a negative for the user as you would be a predictable target when you try to peak. Headglitching is already a issue since you can ADAD strafe to raise you body higher to apear over cover if you are crouched and some spots allow you to look over with only your eyes showing. You will do best if you treat it like BF2 or CoD not use lean at all with how the game is currently
  15. game used to be less boring, Im not complaining about tech issues. I'm complaints are about objectively bad gameplay mechanics that experienced game devs would know are bad or issue on paper. You have all the time in the past and the last 6 months to know and see the design issues. Some cant be fixed fast some can be Im pretty sure some of the devs who are asking for stuff dont play more then a couple of hours a week if at that. In most games the devs are usually not so great or knowlegable at their own game. The game is right now and right now its pretty bad gameplay wise, there are huge issues they could of avoided if they knew better. Lots of hindsight costing wasted programer time. As a example headglitching is a known issue in most FPS games. The projectiles come from the line of sight meaning only the eyes need to be visible to shoot. Two ways of solving this is either making all cover when crouched or standing not hide the head that much like in cod and some extent BF. Or like Squad and some other games and have the projectiles come from the gun or chest. Now they have to spend time to fix it now instead of improving the game further which they said they will fix. Knowledgeable devs should have known this issue from the start and should have designed/program around it. It was a called out as a issue since the AMA. Similar issue with gutshots, on paper they should have known about the issues and it wouldn't work well. It came about from a very unskilled mindset where they didn't think people could react really fast or aim well enough. They didn't expect how player play when you have plenty of resources to know what player can do skill wise and how they would play if they used other games as hindsight examples. On paper they should of known players would shoot the nuts just like in Tarkov instead of the chest to make use of heavily time invested armor mechanics. They say they will fix the gutshots now which would require remaking hitboxes which will cost a good amount of programmer time to do instead of other improvements and content. Either that or maker all the armor cover the entire chest and gut. They even do things like increasing the limb damage seeing how bad it was, reducing it back down then raising it again returning it to a bad model. Lots of people brought up how it should be lowered again. IDK why it was increased wither time outside to make the game easier. Just shows that they dont really know how to test mechanics. I know devs are busy since .3 but spawning has been very broken since they "fixed it" Plenty of times players get farmed in the mercy spawn, and spawn very bad spots on the objective. Lots of the time when you attack a objective the locations you use as staging, recovery and cover are also enemy spawn points leaving a mess of killing enemies as they spawn instead of actually fighting them. This is their first big multiplayer game like this they are learning and they wanted players so they can test it because they dont have experience. You got to be frank with them or they will think everything is OK while the game suffers. It hurts more when the game was doing much better but over time design changes keep making the game gets more boring each patch despite content. If we keep fanboying over the devs when the game has major gameplay issues then its always goign to be bad. This is their first game like this and they honestly are having problems designing it. Got a year but if its boring and broken now design wise it will be boring and broken at launch especially if they dont get complaints. Even if it might hurt it need to be said game devs usually dont play their own games well or much. The game has great tools already but poor design decision making.
  16. The numbers tanked with .4 and .5 didnt help. People were still playing regularly in .3 when it was broken. Ive seen people play very buggy and crashing games before if they were also fun. Im not in a rush the programmers been doing a good job.
  17. I havent seen anyone crash in a long time till today when Echo3Rom3o and his group was on and they were crashing a couple of times every match. This was on .5. .6 is said to be this month I hear for live I dont think its ready. We prob have to wait till the end of may to get the game ready for freeweek ends.
  18. yes need search and destroy game mode. Best mode in cod and the TDM maps would be great for it. Every game has search and destroy, its in CoD, CS, BF, and a whole bunch more. The rules are almost the same as well as ahving the same name in some cases. https://callofduty.fandom.com/wiki/Search_and_Destroy
  19. You can already customize the appearance weapons might as well add the uniforma to each slot so you can change the camo and helmets for each loadout. I do like making people think and give up some stuff with the cosmetics so you cant min max camo for each particular environment. Having several options would be ok at least two different camo options but lot a camo for each map. Selecting a skin in game from a list wouldn't work since there are more options the the in the skin selection.
  20. .6.4 Airstrikes now receive bonus BP for destroying vehicles, Additional points for destroyed vehicles - exceptions for Quad and Buggy, You already get a bunch of points for killing vehicles why are you giving more handouts. 3 RPGs gets me 800 points for low effort work already. People are not going to suddenly think that they should use streaks on tanks more just because it gives them BP. Just lower the score over all already. Stop making the game easy mode. Make people work for something and they wont get bored and quit. Number one issue with this game is that its easier then it was at launch and a whole lot more boring. You arent making room for casuals the game already was pretty casual in the first place and need more skill ceiling. Even core and casual players will get bored of a easy game eventually.
  21. You play against you team more like it. Its about who can get more kills on your team. The team is the real opponent. Its who can farm the most on your team which means who can find the next enemy spawn location faster to get the most kills. TDM is a bad game mode, just make it 10v 10 search and destroy. Even having king of the hill moving objective would be better.
  22. The movement feels bad for the helo. Feels fake like it only imitates some of the flight properly while there are instances where it is clearly like the regular drone instead of a helo.
  23. default load outs do suck honetsty. You can get the m416 and add a long barrel with the money you got or do the same with the AK15 and do ok but the actual default load outs are garbo. You have to make your own which isnt to much of a issue with the 50k you get.
  24. Need to remove the spotting people mechanic. You still have people trying to spam x because it marks people. It clutters the view when you are trying to see people as the marker doesn't follow them but adds another layer to look pass in order to see a player. The spotting people mechanic actually makes it more difficult to see enemies as it doesn't show their actual location. Even if you have a cooldown it will still mess with the gameplay making it frustrating when you cant see a player behind the marking. The pin spot mechanics needs to have a UI revised and be less intrusive to the game because it also makes it hard to see whats behind it. Should be more like GPS coordinates that hug the ground and are small not big boxes that are able to cover a person up. Spotting should only be marking vehicles and locations. Smolensk looks good, lots of LOD issues coming from .6.2 ot 6.3 where stairs are invisible, see through floors in the bunkers, and trees vanish
