I play on a server which limits sniper rifles to 4, no limit on recons though so recons without sniper rifles are fine , teams are most of the time balanced but it doesn't matter how many recons there are if people camp with other kits and ignore objectives..

If that is the case all I have to do is remove it and it will be just like every other thread in video games.

Also Snipers are not mortar attackers, you get one mortar strike per life. So unless you mortar strike then continually suicide and re-spawn you are not doing much to help your team.

Play as an engineer and use your rocket launcher and you will be doing a heck of a lot more then a single mortar strike per life and camping somewhere waiting for someone to stand still.

It belongs in rants because it is a rant. There's a specific forum in the Off Topic section for rants and raves.

The mortar recharges and you can use more than one per life. A mortar strike will destroy a tank in one sitting, rockets do not.

Clearly you're not all that adept with the Sniper class because you do not have to wait for someone to stand still and you die before the mortar recharges. Some of the best shots that are pulled off receive hundreds in Marksman points for shooting a Helicopter pilot in the head, killing the driver of a Humvee as he's tear arsing through the terrain or even just follow someone with the scope and getting a headshot. I use the SV98, so anything less than a headshot is a wasted shot. I have 464 kills with that gun and 351 are headshots. It's my second most used gun under the M416.

Not that I don't agree that it's incredibly frustrating when you end up on a team of snipers who refuse to play the actual game and capture/defend/attack the M-COMs. But the Recon class is extremely useful and a necessary class for the game. As someone mentioned earlier, Snipers play a key role in Rush. Either shooting people trying to arm or disarm the M-COM, or mortar attacking the M-COM after it's armed so that it cannot be disarmed. Two snipers co-ordinating can effectly stop someone from disarming the M-COM with concentrated Mortar strikes, or take down a building filled with the enemy.

Yeah, Squad death match is an interesting mode. Kind of like TDM crossed with FFA.

Sounds like you play hardcore.

If you play regular, the game will not have as many snipers. Regular is also more balanced IMO. And besides, all those 12 year old "Sniping is kewl!!11!" kiddies join hardcore servers because they think that playing hardcore makes them better somehow. I bet that if it was named something more dull, less of those kiddies would play it.

For such a slow paced game, regular mode is much better balanced. Try it sometime. Less snipers too....

Theres a difference in playing the recon class and being a sniper. Too often people that play recon will sit in 1 spot and just snipe. If you play recon you should be:
1. spotting
2. moving
3. spotting
4. planting C4/calling in mortars on targets
5. after doing all of the above snipe when you have a minute but move.

I love it when a sniper shoots from the same spot over and over and over. Easiest kills in the game. But it does suck when you hop into a match with a team that is clueless. Just drop and find another server.

It does suck when practically your whole team is recon, but I don't think that class limitation is the answer. No one will ever learn anything if they are controlled in that way. When the team full of snipers is getting a mega pounding, it's better reinforcement than limiting the class, and having 2-4 stay on sniper for God knows how long.
