I just don’t get it, DB USED to have the spirit of Enemy Territory, it was about reviving, giving ammo, well, teamwork. Can this still exist when 42% of a team is snipers?
Sure, ET had snipers, BUT ET was 16vs16 minimum! You wouldn’t end up in teams where 8 players were snipers, yet that’s exactly what happens here.
Really I’m done with this game, I’ll come back when there will be fun servers. Fun servers are what kept ET alive. I don’t give a shit about competition when there is no competition anyway. Winning a match is just about the luck of being added to the side that’s mowing down the other side (& here again, it has to do with the fact the game is 7vs7, because… statistics).
Bring me fun servers as 20 vs 20 players with 2-snipers-limit, just like good old ET, and sure, the first objective will never pass because the game isn’t designed for that, but I don’t care.
And, once again, allow me to cheat like snipers do. Snipers can chain 2 headshots per second, ruin a match, and the only answer we get from SD is “if they are not cheating, then there is no problem”. LIKE THAT CHANGES ANYTHING FOR ME. “oh, I can’t pop my head anywhere because I get instakilled not even seeing where from [because to hide the fact that lags is a major drawback in a fast game, of course the game now hides the bullet origin, so that you never see yourself shot behind walls anymore], BUT I SHOULD BE HAPPY ABOUT IT, BECAUSE THOSE ARE JUST GOOD, THEY ARE NOT CHEATING!”.
And I fully understand this is where the game is heading. The game put snipers on top of scoreboards, and that was months ago, meaning: it wasn’t even a bug, it was by design. Put snipers at the top, meaning the game wants MORE snipers, and that’s exactly what happened.
Snipers have no recoil, no cooldown, no wobbling, can instakill an entire team in a row before reloading, and yet it’s with Jav that players seem to have a problem. Jav can instakill… once… and then no more for 20sec. Jav can instakill several at once? Sure, but so can snipers as well !!
& that too is abnormal. Sniping in Enemy Territory was hard, there was wobbling & recoil.
Anyway, as I’ve already asked in the past, allow me to “get good” like snipers can. If you’re fine with good snipers chaining instakills, then allow me to do the same, with objectives.
Ever heard of track&field? Give me that for repairing. That, or make me solve math problems, whatever, but something that can allow me to GET GOOD and ruin games too. I wanna repair an EV in 0.5sec BECAUSE I GOT GOOD AT IT, why can’t I?
I wanna 100% heal people in no time using a track&field method, not by holding a key, because that’s not something I can improve, I can’t ruin games from that.
