Errr... HOW is it a cheat? It decreases the TKs making it a lot better to play but doesn't help to kill enemies at all. Thus it's not a cheat.

Perfectly okay, why would it be unfair?

Well the smaller flag icon gives you a atvantage others don't have. It might decrease TK's but the A) all people should have this smaller icon B) IRL you don't have a minimpa showing troops movements, trowing in grenades or randomly spraying your bullets in the general direction of a flag is never a smart thing to do. When you kill a team mate in the proces it is due to your own stupidity.

So yes i would say that it is cheating.

If you look at the minimap you can notice that instead of a HUGE flag which would hide the friendly units that are at the flag you can see a TRANSPARENT circle which helps you to see if there are friendly units at the flag. Helps you not to shoot artillery to the flag when teammates are there or bomb your own guys, etc. I think clearpoints should be added into the FH. Then everyone would have it, everyone would notice how needed it is.

Why make a bid deal about it....I don't think its such a big thing.

P.S. Its an uncappable base anyway...who would shoot at it Doenitz?

I wouldn't use it in clangames, but in my opinion it's perfectly ok in publics.

Großadmiral Dönitz B) IRL you don't have a minimpa showing troops movements, trowing in grenades or randomly spraying your bullets in the general direction of a flag is never a smart thing to do. When you kill a team mate in the proces it is due to your own stupidity.

True, but IRL, your eyes have much better resolution than any computer monitor, and it's much easier to discern friendly from enemy infantry. Also IRL, you had things called "leaders", whose job was to know where all the friendly guys were. Most TK's are not due to grenades or random bullets, but target misidentification and lack of communication, not to mention panicking as friendlies suddenly appear around corners at point-blank range :D. All my TK's are aimed shots, I think only once or twice have I TK'd someone I didn't know was there.
