After watching http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-262214684857951521&q=forgotten+hope+2 (and various others) i'm quite annoyed with what you've done to the sniper rifle

1) It's an almost-realism mod yet you keep the zoom when firing the sniper rifle, thus making it even easier to use, meaning nobody would ever choose the "normal rifle soldier" kit and therefore you're gonna get another game full of snipers.

2)Why would someone choose the unscoped rifle when you can get one with a big fuckoff zoom and crosshair, that doesn't zoom out when pulling back the bolt; over the unscoped rifle which doesn't have zoom, doesn't have a big crosshair and zooms out when you pull back the bolt.

3) What advantages will the standard soldier kit have over the super duper sniper kit, i'd like to know that.

4) I'm being honest here, i'm begging you guys don't make this game a sniper fest. Really....if you do, i'll thank you for finally giving me a proper reason to delete BF2 forever off my hard drive (reason being, FH2, most anticipated mod sucked hard becuase it catered for sniper knobs) and letting me resume a normal life.

5) Other than that, everything else in those videos looked nice. :eek: :D

I know it's a WIP and everything will probably change (ie: Lee enfield turning into batmobile one day before release) but still...

I bet that as in FH 0.7, in FH2 all the sniper kits will be pickups only. I'm pretty sure you can't spawn with one.

That's the way sniper rifles work in 0.7 and they are fine as they are. If devs think they will need to change something they will.

Grenades to begin with I bet. Also wider view of surrounding while aiming.

1. Well a scope impedes your vision for one. 2. WIP 3. Snipers will most likely be pickup only so, no not everyone will be a sniper.

I'd be surprised if more then one person per team would be able to get a sniper kit.

Might I suggest, Forgotten Hope - a Battlefield 1942 modification Downloading & playing this game & getting a general idea of what the Devs have in mind for FH2. It realy is the best measuring stick available to guess at how things will work for FH2 IMHO & a team full of snipers aint it.

1. it is a work in progress.

2. The FH team has not let us down yet and as many here can tell you, they will remove/add something if THEY like it and not because people complain or demand stuff.

3. your tone is a little off, but understandable for us fan boys ;)

4. I agree with you! Same thing was with DoD and FH. A kar whore could outshoot a sniper @ all distances. One reason I want to see a base sway on all weapons (maybe cept the sniper. ok since only a pick-up-kit).
