of course, I ask politely always, and it works more often than not, but that was not my question 😜
and you are right about that fact that the rifleman is a very versatile class; I never argued about that.
the other thing is the commander/observer combo being in bad hands which can really give you a headache, or not if you leave like I do when I see an unknown commander below lvl100 for the above-mentioned reason ... (I did not even try commander on public servers before I got 200 to be honest)

everybody here answering like "I don´t like to play [insert_your_not_preferred_role_here]" where there are so many roles available; of course, the rifleman can be adjusted accordingly to work more or less like nearly every other special role with only a few restrictions, and exactly these restrictions are the specialties that later are lacking in the game.
so, if you don´t like the passive specialty of the observer, why not go demolitions or advisor? whatever you dislike, there will be a class that meets your style ...

if you don´t like advisor play demolitions or observer for instance. rifleman should only be used if all other specialists are taken, honestly

is there any reason why the "rifleman" is available even before the other roles are filled? i just had several rounds without any demo, observers, advisors, breachers, but 4+ riflemen and when i asked to change i was even tk´d afterwards ... wtf noobs

People keep telling me that the AI reacts according to skill level, but if that was the case I would not start this topic again: I can hardly ever play a game without the AI "cheating" on me. It started to become difficult approaching 100, but now having passed 300 it´s only luck that gets me through a round without dying. I can do whatever I want, try all the classes and tactics but I will certainly be taken out with the first round of whatever suddenly appearing hostile. There is nothing I can do about it apparently, but maybe a dev listens and maybe there is smb out there able to cast some light upon or clarify this ...

@cool_lad said in nerf technical sniper pls:
...> using spotter-gunner teams instead of soloing it

which absolutely is the only viable way 😃

steam allows for family members (or friends) to share the same computer and the programs and games installed thereupon. however, if you activate this feature and your family member or friend plays insurgency sandstorm under his/her logon and corresponding registration repository your stats will be lost and you cannot access the game anymore until having it removed and installed from scratch. devs should maybe have a look at this as it is not really compliant with standards ... 😉

that will be what it comes down to at the end if they make it right. they reduced the field of vision in its angle from 180 to 120° in the last patch and now they would need to reduce the field of visibility over distance by blurring it gradually to them with I don´t know what measure. the thing though is that even if shot at by a sniper, you simply cannot truly aim over the distance with the technical´s gun; all you can do is fire multiple rounds in a "direction" but not a target and so the randomness of the player being hit should massively increase over distance and thus make it more viable to sniper at the hotel of hideout/town ...

another thing that ticks me off is the sniping gunner on the technical; whereas we humans can hardly see anything they are god-like; while I had not even caught a glimpse of the gunner with my 7x hunting scope I got sniped by its first round and it was not by chance as the counter-attack it was part of was very far away from my location and did not even remotely match its "natural" angle ... 😞

we all know that the ai wins impossible situations, but do you also experience the miraculous "server connection loss" when the game was running surprisingly smooth and you had this fantastic capture and kill streak? it has happened to me so often i feel like i could really go on some killing spree already 😡
