@11-11-11 I know it's not like that in Real Life. I appreciate Sandstorms Realism, but I also know that the suppression mechanics in RO2 and RS2 made the games so much better and those game were also fairly realistic.
I see your point though.
There's a big enough dicussion about suppression going on in other games. Let's just agree to disagree and let the devs decide.
@11-11-11 I respect your opinion. People just have different tastes I guess. To me being suppressed in Sandstorm doesn't do anything. I shoot back and kill the guy, often without problems at all since the weapon handling is exactly the same. Also in my opinion suppression should be an "outright hinderance" as you named it, that's the whole point of it. I liked RO2s system.
I don't care if it's not like that in Real Life, you don't sit infront of a computer in a firefight. In my opinion a game needs prominent suppression visual effect and penalties to weapon handling, otherwise it just wont work.
Sure, I won't peek out a window where an MG is shooting at, (although that happened to me more than a few times) but the second he stops shooting I pop out and shoot him before he can move. And that shouldn't happen.
@rifrafjonesy this doesn't have a lot to do with my original post? People are unable to fight back? I have never seen that in this game. It seems to me that suppression doesn't do anything. Why not just remove the effects? It wouldn't make any difference.
@genoharadan ? The weapons are iconic, the gamemodes, the hardcore feeling, the sound, the voices, the speed of the overall gameplay, the tactics. It's definitely Insurgency. I'm more concerned about the performance and the little things like comms menu spamming. This post was about something else though.
@slazenger I don't see the problem. That just makes it better than on small maps. It's an iconic insurgency mode. Sometimes you have to wait. Deal with it.
Not a friend of this suggestion. The lines are blured today . Many Insurgent groups use western equipment.
Hell, my country's G36 gets distributed a lot. And it's the same with a lot of other western equipment. Save for very specialized euipment anything can happen today.
