It's become very clear to me that when the fuel trucks are always in the same spot every time, players will ALWAYS find a way to cheese a win, either by finding a pixel-perfect RPG peek at the truck from a long way off, or simply by rushing it at the beginning of the map. Or perhaps someone posts a Youtube video of "If the commander calls in mortars on THIS spot it will kill the enemy truck every time" and suddenly one teams truck blows up within 30 seconds of EVERY match.
It seems odd to me that the enemy team somehow has pinpoint accurate intel on where their opponents fuel trucks are. And I think it would be more fun if its location was not always the same, and it didn't appear on the map of the enemy at the start of a game.
- Randomize the fuel-truck locations
- Require a player to have line of sight to the enemies truck for 2 seconds before they begin a radio call to their HQ to help spot it on the map for their team. (after they call it in on their radio, like an observer or commander would)
- Killing the player who spotted the truck before the call is complete means the truck doesn't appear on the map
Just these few changes alone would add a great amount of variety and increase the amount of recon and teamwork require to find and blow up the Fuel Truck. Without something like this, it's ALWAYS just going to be cheese
