hobnob11 Posted November 28, 2017 Share Posted November 28, 2017 I used to be mainly a lead / medic, as that seemed to be where I could most effectively help other people. Nowadays I've taken to hiding in vortex or some other separate squad because of the vocal disagreements on decisions and fights that happen, but that's besides the point. all I want to do is stop people from not having fun, that's the only reason i play any game. I don't find shooting people or blowing things up that interesting and what with the increase of capable Squad leads appearing, The main source of "non-fun" comes from players waiting around for the gears to start turning. So i started going Vortex where I could best minimize the amount of down time people experience, but now that's started being less and less useful so I ask you this.. (Side note: I feel like this could be interpreted as an attack on mini's concept of "ground only no air assets using the FOB", so I'm writing this side note to say that it is NOT that, I think its a cool alternate direction, but i have some questions..) 1: Do people not like vortex because it defeats the purpose of real logistical support, such as trucks and humvees? or is it because armed air assets make every battle "a sure victory"? 2: I saw in another post stanhope commented: Quote Yes i do get that making sure vortex is sitting on their ass doing nothing for 15+ minutes is a real priority and that they couldn't have taken 2 minutes to fly me over to the FOB. I can't speak for other pilots, but If I manage to make just 1 person who just joined or died not wait as long, keep them in the game then I'm happy to wait on standby on the carrier for hours. We had a zeus op a while ago which consisted of some towns to clear on altis, and it was just after the rally point had been implemented so there was no need for reinserts. I sat on standby for maybe 3 hours before alpha needed an extraction, just watching the helmet cams and listening to long range, but I flew in and got everyone out, which gave them enough time to go and do something else instead of having to walk back. I'd do that mission again right now if i had the chance. 3: (this one is with minis op he did in mind) Say you did have a fob set up, with a logi team sorting out logistical support, but every now and then you had a guy who couldn't spawn at the fob because the JIP'd and didn't have the spawn point, or didn't want to kill them selves.. would you still object to a transport only vortex? 4: what happened to fast roping, hell when was the last time anyone did a parajump? there are so many more interesting ways to insert a team other than drive in a convoy or land a click outside and walk in. (off topic question) 5: does anyone know arma scripting well enough to code helmet cams into the new map based system, its lonely on the carrier nowadays.
