Thought of this with some help in a parallel thread:

instead of artillery, let commanders on certain maps (i.e. Japanese, Russian) call up an infantry charge, and have 100-200 fairly stupid infantry, firing wildly, throwing grenades, and screaming insanely come charging out of the fog.

When they reach their objective, they just shoot (badly aimed), hack and slash and scream for a bit, then retreat or die or something.

It wouldn't have to crush the server with AI performance, because they could be fairly dumb (i.e. just run in a certain direction, don't bother dodging, and just shoot shoot shoot.)

Meat shields, human sandbags, cannon fodder...soldiers, whatever you wanna call them: They catch bullets.

And who knows, they might actually kill something!!11

Or at least distract the bad guys long enough, while they're falling down laughing...

Well, if American military philosophy is to be believed: You shoot in something's general direction with enough fire power, you're gonna kill it- then yes, you'll...kill a few. I want to see the ones in the rear toss grenades to the front, blowing up their buddies..

Well like seems to work.:D

I wouldn't mind play the germans just to man a MG42 to take on an unbeatable human wave. It's kind of gives you that desperate adreneline rush you can't get anywhere else.

Run out of bullets, take out the shovel and charge head long into the fray, hacking away like some drawve with a axe and a death wish until your arms and numb and it's egdes are blunted down to the handle. Throw your nades and wrestle a ruskie for his PPSH and do your best gangster impression complete with a Patrick-Stewart-on-the-holodeckesque roar until the drum is dry(becareful of enemy nades lest you impersonate his final scene in Xmen III).first_contact0321.jpg

Then, with your last breath, unseath your knife commit seppuku even though it's not even a part of your culture. Because all the greatest adventures end with the hero killing himself.(with the unfortunate exception of Tom Cruise movies)

I think this is a good idea

Seems cool. Maybe too complex though. Not to mention It might suck if you cant direct it nice because you could send them the wrong way. :P that would be funny.

ROFL--I'm imagining that the only thing more hilarious than a bunch of screaming, sword-wielding Japanese suicide troopers charging AT the enemy would be a bunch of screaming, sword-wielding Japanese suicide troopers running AWAY from the enemy.
