Dedicated servers will help alot. Then you can play with and against the same ppl over time. And also build a community.
Mapknowledge plays a huge deal in sandstorm, just play it, try different loadouts, tactics and routes to the objective -from both sides.
Also, on the other hand -A bigger focus on how to play the objective from both developers and connected youtubers would help alot. For example explain why firefight is not won by camping as last man standing, and that firefight is not TDM.
About dedicated servers. Will there be trusted serveproviders, aka, solid gamingcommunities, that can host a serverpark of varied gamemodes? Or dedicated servers that are rented from providers to communities or even private persons?
In any case, will there ever be given out serverfiles, like in the old days to large and trusted communities?
I hope that leaning will be fixed. Seems that my character's shoulder is visible way before I even see the enemy round a corner. Leaning as it is now, just tilts the body around a center axis, rather than lean out.
