How did GrizzleBoy get to nearly 1,000 posts when he acts like this all the time?
You can keep repeating the same thing ad nauseum without even considering other peoples points of view. Least not of all then attacking people. But someone is going to get sick of you eventually.
What is good about being able to sit in a bush that TOTALLY blocks your vision, fire at orange triangles and get kills/points because that's exactly what you are defending.
Like it happens JUST like that ALL the time and nothing else ever happens. As I said earlier, but you won't know because you're supposedly ignoring me, blame the player and not the game. Most people I see playing BC2 are running and gunning. I see lots of snipers sitting in bushes, because you know, that's what snipers do
. They where a guille suit for a reason? It's supposed to look like a bush
? What's your problem with that? Nothing I imagine. However you really don't like 3D spotting because someone could sit in a bush getting kills? Right, it's that easy, huh? Just sit in the bush and shoot the triangles? What about if the person is in a building? What if they're behind several pieces of cover in between the camper and themselves? What if your entire team isn't spotting (it happens a lot)? There are just too many variables for what you are moaning about to be that damn simple.
Point is, if a player is sat in a bush exploiting a bug and ruining gameplay for other people, they're not the kind of player I want in my server. Sitting in a bush and shooting targets that other people have spotted is fair game. But the odds of them raping other people badly aren't very good. Depending on their position, the map and the state of the game you're playing (non-alpha with full graphical options and things like bullet trails and more enhanced sound (to tell where the shot comes from) etc). Ultimately, I know that if someone was doing that on BC2, they wouldn't last very long. If someone else didn't kill the obvious sniper in the bush, I bloody well would.
You can attack me for defending the implementation if you want. I don't care. You can insinuate that I don't even play the game. PM me, we'll hook up and play.
Until you can prove that in BC2 a sniper can just sit in a bush, spamming Q and getting spots
, whilst shooting other spots and rack up an unusual amount of kills, then I think you're overreacting an absurd amount just as is everyone else.
I had never known there was such a massive problem with 3D spotting between "core" Battlefield fans and BC2 until this BF3 alpha. Seriously. I eagerly awaited BC2 coming to the PC, annoyed BC1 was only for consoles. I was waiting for a new Battlefield game and when BC2 hit I was awestruck with it. Never saw a damn problem with anything (except the hitboxes slightly in the Beta and initial release).
Yet here you are, insulting people and claiming to have some sort of premium rights on what should and shouldn't be allowed in the game. But you're not alone, there are a fair few other people moaning about the same non-existant problem (3D spotting being the non-existant problem. The actual problems is the bugs in it at the moment.) No where did DICE say that Battlefield 3 wasn't going to draw on inspiration from Bad Company. No where. Yet you're all acting like you were decieved! Dooped into playing a game that, oh no, is quite like Bad Company! Oh the horror! Why?! Why would DICE draw on inspiration from their latest successful Battlefield series game?! Why would they do something like that? It makes no sense! Quick! To the preorder cancelling station! Set your phasers to unbuy!
Honestly, you people are just weird. Just wait for the final release, then
pass judgement on what's in and what's not.
The problem isn't there in BC2. You can claim I don't play the game. But I do and the joke is on you. I haven't seen anyone camping in a bush shooting spots because it's not a very good kill tactic and it wouldn't bloody work. It only worked in the alpha because the spot system was broken and buggy and because they've altered the sniper's bullet trail, plus as soon as word about the bug got out, EVERYONE was spamming Q.
Game. Set. Your move.Edited by Viridian - 8/1/11 at 3:48pm
