You can't honestly say you can throw yourself onto the ground and instantly be ready to shoot someone that's 30 or so feet away. Pretty easy concept to implement.
Sniper issue: There's no difference. Without prone, if a decent sniper knows what he is doing, he can still crouch at just the right spot where only his head is visible. Been there, done that.
never said you cant do with while crouched, but you can do it in hundreds more places with prone than crouch.
Also, what about the fact that if you hit someone they just go prone, in the complex environment going prone will 90% of break line of site, would you really want that to happen every other fight. The enemy just ducks out of sight before you can kill them. That didnt happen in bf2 because the terrain was not that complex, once in a while someone could prone behing a wall, or sandbags, but very seldom when it came to terrain. Now picture if you could prone in bc2 vietnam. you would always get out of a fight. Since you can only crouch, people either attempt to fight back, or they attempt to make a run for cover. Either way a fight happens, instead of simply not happening.
To many people here cannot think about something enough to actually see how it works in game, they just complain about it not being there, without think about what would happen if it was there instead.
