I really don't like how a security player can have the same middle-eastern accent that the insurgents have.

It's hard enough keeping track of who you're supposed to be shooting since you switch teams all the time. I really don't need identical voice-overs adding to the confusion. And I swear I've heard some security guys shout "Allahu Ackbar" a few times, which really throws me off.

So please make the security forces have their own distinct accents. It could even still be middle-eastern if the devs really need it to be for some reason, just make it noticeably different than the insurgent one.

@eyeofhorus said in What is going on with competitive matchmaking?:

What’s funny is that the reason the queue time is relatively long is because no one is queuing because the queue time is long. Quite the paradox.

Yeah that was my suspicion. Just wasn't sure if it was actually broken or something.

Maybe people will get tired of slaughtering bots one day and flock to competitive...

Why is no one playing competitive?

It seems to work, because when there are more than 10 people searching I usually get a game within a few minutes. But usually there are less than 10 people searching for a competitive game and hundreds searching for the other two modes.

Is there something wrong with it or are people just not interested?

I think competitive is by far the most fun mode, so it's a shame that I never get to play it.

As long as you can't shoot while transitioning in and out of prone, or can't shoot accurately at least. Few things are more frustrating than getting lit up when the enemy is halfway through a prone animation.

I like the iron sights on the G36 better than the M16 or M4. So its got that going for it at least.

@thehappybub said in Kill-Cam:

It's plenty of information to be honest. Once you know the maps it'll be a pinpoint of someone's position

Well, even if you had a team full of people who knew the maps and made every call-out when relevant, I still think kill-cams would do more good than bad. People camping spawns. People camping the same corner the entire game. Snipers camping a mile away the whole game only to get a few kills. Those people would be hurt the most.

Don't get me wrong, I love finding that perfect position and racking up kills because the other team can't figure it out, but I'm willing to sacrifice some of that power to see my character in game, make movement more powerful, and eliminate a lot of those "WTF!!!" moments that happen when you die a confusing and seemingly unfair death.

Also, with the silencer thing, those sneaky tactics become even more powerful because you're getting the benefit of your own teams kill-cam call-outs without being called out yourself. You just have to specialize into it by equipping a silencer.

Also wanted to add, if you're worried about snipers and MGs being nerfed by kill-cams, remember that all your victim is really going to see is you scoped in on their face, which most of the time is not going to be enough information for someone to pinpoint your location. So there would be a slight nerf to camping, but it wouldn't be a huge change in the meta, especially if silencers hide kill-cams.

I would be fine with no kill-cams in competitive, although then you run into the problem of silencers being useless for that mode only.

But honestly it shouldn't be a big deal to most players even if their position is called out immediately after they kill someone. The maps are so big and busy (compared to cs:go) that it's often pretty difficult to make a specific call-out. And most of the time I know where I got shot from anyway even without a kill-cam. But if others feel differently, then hey-o, slap on a silencer and be sneaky by all means.

Loving the game so far, and this might sound unimportant, but I really want to see my character in game once in a while. With all the hard earned credits I put into making my guy look snazzy, it would be nice to see him in game instead of only in the main menu.

So I think it would be cool to add kill-cams and make silencers not show a kill-cam. As of now it seems like the silencers are pretty useless and overpriced. Plus it will discourage camping unless you're willing to pay the 3 equipment points to hide your shame.
