Its just ridiculous how i cant fnd a server without everyne tank whoring even on karkand, its really annoying thefact that theyre so easy to get and that only 2 classes have the ability to take them out and even those 2 classes have a very hard time doing it. My suggestion is howbout only engineers can drive heavy vehicles taht should attleast lessen the tank whore population or just make ATs more powerful its F'ing ridiculous how much shots it takes even on the sweetspots, besides the ones taht are extremely hard to hit. In RL a fricken rocket pierces the tank and kills to the passengers......

Actually, 3 classes have the ability to destroy vehicles (Spec Ops, Engineer, AT; Assault can destroy light jeeps with the grenade launcher attachment). If a modification was made to BF2 where only one AT rocket hit is able to destroy a tank, people would start complaining about how an Abrams' armor is able to withstand such an attack. It's just a video game, and more realism is constantly being added to them... Eventually, players are probably going to require participation in training exercises before they can experience the ability to operate armored vehicles.

Such an example is America's Army, where you go through a training course, before pretty much being able to do anything else.

If only engineers could drive heavy weaponry, we'd see a huge increase in engineers, and then we'd have a shortage of other kinds of players, such as medics.. mainly because one of the main features of BF is vehicular combat, more and more people will become engineers.

You can't exactly have a perfect playing environment, but the only viable thing I can think of, is that if it's really pissing you and other people off, then organise a kickvote on the offending player.

Or, you can use air power to get rid of tankers, that's what I do..

Tanks are rediculously easy to take out on Karkand. There are so many roofs and back alleys that ATers can take them out from and the TOWs are so well placed that tank drivers are shitting bricks every second they are alive. Also, engineers can easily take out tanks, even easier than SF. All you have to do is chuck a mine on top of a tank, and it will fall off the tank and blow it up. Without fail.

Very true. I can remember in BF1942 when tanks could even be damaged by ordinary grenades I could, with some skill and intelligence, completely dominate the game by making use of natural features and my engineering skill. There are games when I survived the entire round in one tank and got the top score. In comparison I find that the tanks on BF2 are rediculously easy to destroy. Tanks are a weapon of fear and terror (no smart comments please) and infantry should be hiding when they drive by, not standing in the middle of the road waving their arms like a duck and yelling "shoot me shoot me!"

If you see a tank and you are not spec ops or AT you spot it, then run and hide and leave it for the ppl with the correct eqiupment. You complain because in Karkand the tank camps in one spot and shoots ppl as they run down an alley, so why are they running down the alley? If someone spots it ppl all know where it is, and if it camps then it's a sitting duck for At and Spec Ops, and why aren't your engineers and Spec Op's mining it's camping spot so that next time it turns up it dies immediately?

Oh yes, the answer to all these questions is, because you are not playing as a team!

And no, even in real life not all tanks die immediately when hit by an At rocket, if they did then nobody would bother with tanks. Just do the maths Tank=$2.5 million, AT=what several thousand?, for every Tank in the field even a minor country could deploy a hundred AT rockets each.

If anything the Tanks are actually underpowerd.

Tanks armour in BF2 is wayy too much. In 1952 you could kill them with 1 shot from the rear.

Given the correct weapon, that's true, but that's the entire point, if you face a tank wait for the correct firepower, don't just keep rushing down that alley with with a pop gun as some ppl seem to do.

I tank whore a fair bit, but not on Karkand because it is easy to take out a tank on that map because there are usually a lot of AT people.
