Cutting to the chase, particularly in Battle of Foy, there seems to be an excessive use of the MG42 kit. Now I may be wrong, and if so I'll withdraw my accusation, but I've never heard of a machine gun being used much like a sub-machine gun. It really detracts from the game when you have people using 'Spray and pray' tactics instead of taking the time to aim (also see PPSH and rifle grenade.) I truly don't mind the use of MGs if they're used in a realistic way, but using them this way is just unrealistic as far as I know. My two cents, feel free to flame me as much as you wish if I get something wrong here, because I'm sure someone feels the need to prove their superiority in historical knowledge, since there's always someone on every forum. :P

While I agree with you, I've never seen it as a problem. A guy standing shooting at me with an MG42 while running has a better chance of hurting me by hoping I trip on a rock. And to be honest, there really isn't a "fix" for this. You can't dictate how people can use a weapon. Sure, they could remove the MG42, replace it with maybe a 34 (half the rate of fire) even though that's not realistic (using decommissioned inferior weapons when the better weapon is cheaper to make). But keep in mind you guys also have the thompson, which makes the mp40 look like a sub machine pea shooter. :) Not to mention semi-automatic rifles.

Ill put it this way, a few nights ago i was playing on the wolf server, and Foy cam into rotation, basically the allies NEVER got farther than half way across the first field, we tried everything from mass rushes to going around the edges to using the jeep to try and ferry. the game ended with the germans winning by 400+ points, when they only start with 500 something. it was a massacre, and almost every single kill on their side was from MG42s.

The only thing I use at Foy is the MG42. However, I use it in a strichtly defensive role. I get on one of the destroyed buildings looking down towards the sawmill spawn. From there I have a great view of everything and no one really looks for me up there. I mow down everyone who tries to run towards town. I agree though, if you're gonna use the MG, dont be a Spray and Pray bitch, no one likes those...

yeah, but its a loose loose situation. you take them out, and you loose accuracy by not having the much loved lichtes mg42. leave em in and you get a shitload of asses using them to assault. NOTE: the mg42 was used for assault, just not in the "spray and pray" method.

Sweet, I was hoping this would be implimented... since NCOs were more common than officers, will we get an NCO class to replace the officer????
