Plus we need a way to edit our load outs before we get into a game...
Giving us a sound, countdown or something at beginning of the game so that we know the round has started would be good also. Sometimes I exit the load out screen to find my teammates are already gone, and I had no idea..
Fine with that but unless they are gonna add server options for official servers that wouldn't help. Not in current state anyway, as you can only rank up on official servers. You gain no experience when playing custom servers so... kinda pointless.
Shotguns are fine.. They don't kill out to 1000 yards. That's a huge exaggeration. You don't even make sniper shots out to 1000 yards. The maps aren't even big enough. Flechette actually has a max effective range of 300 meters which is pretty damn long way. They used it in WW2 to suppress snipers.
I can live with it the way it is.. I just think it would be more enjoyable if they made the scopes more realistic feeling. At the very minimum anything higher than a 2x should be like looking through a scope not like using a red dot with both eyes open. I mean if this game is actually going to be semi realistic which is what I always thought insurgency was all about.
True for red dots, but for scopes such as 2x, 4x, and so on.. you don't use both eyes open. You only use one eye open on a scope, and modern scopes actually give you a decent size field of view. Much more than we get inside of the "circle" part of the scope in this game anyway.
