World War 3 sorely needs a revive system, but NOT something like the Battlefield revive system. Of course it is ridiculous to bring someone back to life after they've been blasted by a tank, with nothing more than a shock from a defibrillator. Think the revive system from America's Army. Here is the scenario: If the soldier was shot in the head, run over by a vehicle, or blown up by any explosive, they will not be treatable. To say that a revive system would not work and be unrealistic is entirely ignorant to how real world military;s operate. When a fellow soldier is shot and incapacitated, they aren't just left to bleed out. Soldiers have basic first aid training to stop bleeding of wounds, and bandage then up. While we're on the topic of realism, World War 3's medical system already isn't realistic. In the real world, you don't go to a medical crate and magically heal your bullet wounds, broken bones, and extract shrapnel from your body by looking at the crate, or by getting poked with a syringe. I think the implementation of a system like this would be entirely fitting of the game's play style and setting. It would increase immersion, while not hindering any other mechanics, but rather offering players more choices in game. This will also increase teammate cooperation and coordination. Change my mind.
My ideas on a revive system A few of my personal opinions: 1. The advanced ballistics system in world war 3 is a feature that enhances immersion. 2. Adding a willy-nilly revive system, I my opinion, would completely destroy the immersion created by said feature. a. Showing you where you got hit, and then someone reviving you, would just be silly and make it less realistic and immersive. So, instead of having to add one that doesn’t compliment the other, why don’t we build the revive system off of the ballistic system? I am a developer and a programmer of sorts, and this is how I imagine it working, and how it could work well. We have a built in ballistic system here that provides rich context on the data of where our bodies were impacted with incoming rounds, as well as the damage that occurred in a specific area. As most players have said, headshots and vitals should be an immediate cannot revive. However we can go much deeper into this, and beforehand, I would like to say that I view shots placed center mass that impact the spinal region as vitals- CANNOT REVIVE. Each body part should have a standard treatment time built into the code. If 100% of the damage caused in killing the player is dealt to the leg, that would be a 10 second revive If 100% of the damage caused in killing the player is dealt to the arm, that would be a 5 second revive. These base line measures will play in further in a second. However, if 25% of the damage to the player is to the leg, and 75% of the damage is to the arm, than the combined percentage of time would be added (25% of damage to leg = 2.5 seconds/75% of damage to leg = 3.75 seconds), MEANING the total time to revive the player would be 6.25 seconds. This could then be extrapolated to multiple body parts (Hands, feet, shins, thighs, forearms, upper arms, etc), ultimately creating a unique time value for how long it takes to revive each player (With a potential max set into the code), depending on the wounds to the body part. This is extremely doable in my opinion by just BUILDING ON TOP OF the fantastic hit detection and ballistics built into the game. This aids in immersion because you’re encouraging your players to take active, risky decisions on the battlefield, rather than act like a bot that can just expect the same scenario over and over again. Things like concussion damage, and explosion damage would have to be brain-stormed a bit more with your design team. Adding any further treatment IMO, such as Arma ACE would be FAR too complicated, and I think implementing it this way alone would be a fantastic addition to the game. It’s not complicated, it can be integrated relatively easy into the game, and be taken out or re-defined just as easy.
I think some sort of revive system would make the game a bit more enjoyable. Yes, the developers have probably thought of this and left it out for a reason. My first few games I really liked that the game punished you for dying, it made me work extra hard trying to stay alive, made the game feel more realistic. But now, a few more games later it's just gotten so annoying. Walking back after dying takes way too long because of the map sizes (Love the size, don't get me wrong), but I think implementing some sort of revive system would make a game a lot more enjoyable as well as speeding things up a bit. Maybe a gadget like BFs defibrillators or Armas revive?
