DakimDragco Posted March 5, 2015 Share Posted March 5, 2015 So the title probaly isn't clear enought, but didnt know how else to start this. As some may know, i'm a bit of a sniper nutcase out here, i love playing the role. So i am wondering if there are others who might be willing to team up with me during normal play times and form a little sniper/spotter team ocasionaly. I'm ok with being either the sniper or spotter, and am willing to share my views and pointers on how a sniper/spotter team should be used ingame without ruining the fun of all those who play infantry. As a side note, during gamenights we have the marksman slots, which is fine with me, so unless the mission maker or simply the mission itself lends itself for it, i am not planning on doing sniper/spotter teams on the gamenights. However i could give a idee on how to implement the slot for future missions. Best way to add them to the current Gauntlet kind of setup for slots, is to attach them directly to the Platoon Command element. This would put them directly under the command of the Platoon Commander and basicly have them as semi-bodyguards for the unit, until they are ordered to deploy to the field by Command personaly. This would avoid having lonewolf like snipers just showing up out of nowere and causing contussion for the ground troops, and add a sort of support element just like Bomb 1-1 (Minipily's Tank unit) that command can send in depending on the situation. This would ofcourse also be able to be used during normal gamehours, outside of gamenights. Personaly i dont feel chernarus currently lends itself for a sniper/spotter team, so this is more and idea for future ports of the whole gauntlet mission to perhaps other maps like Takistan and later even altis perhaps. So if anyone has an idee about this, or thinks maybe they want to team up with me in the future, go ahead and post to share you thoughts. ***PS: I know i responded to the EU3 Gauntlet Feedback to a comment from NorGamer64 about adding a sniper team, saying i felt it didnt need a sniper team on the map yet. I still stand with that comment, as i said chernarus isn't ideal for a sniper due to the ranges being far shorter at wich you engage enemies. However NorGamer did make me start thinking about this and i agree that i would like to see some Sniper/Spotter team in the future that plays a supporting role similar too how we have Minipily's Bomb 1-1 tank crew to support us sometimes. So thanks goes to NorGamer for getting me thinking about this subject. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
