Dunno if this has been suggested before, but im too lazy to search and it bares repeating anyway... How about re-configuring the tanks so that the driver shoots the bow-mg (if there is one) and the main gun is handled by someone else... it would force people to cooperate a bit more... and if youre alone in the tank thats not the end of the world... youd just have to stop when you shoot (wich most tankers during wwII did...)
yes it has been discussed alot and it just wont work. in a pubbie server there is no way to communicate to the driver quickly and have good teamwork. typing takes to long and its much better to have the ability to stop and shoot right when u see something (hell, you usually dont even have to stop.)
Silet Heroes mod implented this and the tanks got very hard to use and boring so fh pleas dont implent this!
yah, this would only be good at say a LAN party were you could yell at the person driving the tank, on a public sever it would suck ass.
Tanks would be useless. It barely works in PS, and the only reason it works is because maps are so open, and voice chat is common(A good tank crew is hard to find and they're 99% of the time clanned)
Until voice com is standard in games, it just wouldn't work.
hell, needing a separate Driver and Gunner was a huge problem in Ofp, and one of the reasons it went from a better version of battle field with many people per side to a game where most clan matches are like 6 vs 6 at most.
Just see it now. "Enemy tank at 3 o'clock". Noob driver ignores commander and races to flag. Enemy tank at 3 o'clock dispatches noob driver and commander. Its bad enough with two seater arty, never mind tanks
yah, they REALLY need to get rid of the driver in arty. i was playing the Russian vs Finnish map (dont remember name) I was in the ROcket launcher, and some noob decided to taxi to the front, needless to say, EVERY one was pissed at him cuase he destroyed our ability to kill the finnish
ok then maby it could be made in a patch so that clans and BFE players could use it...
