Am I the only one that thinks that about 75% of players couldn't get a single kill without grenades?

Standard procedure for every poor to mediocre player I see is to immediately rapid fire off all three of their grenades as fast as they can after spawning. Obviously certain maps are worse than others, you don't see many of these types on El Alamein. But good God, tell me Omaha Beach wouldn't be a bit more fun if there weren't five guys standing at the top of each ramp dropping grenades for the duration of the map. These same guys couldn't hit a stationary target at point plank range with their gun to save their lives.

One bit of 'balancing' I'd love to see is every class but assault only getting a single grenade. Not only would it cut down seriously on the grenade spam, but it would give the assault class that added 'something special' a lot of people think it needs.

Hi Asmodan,

I personally rarely use greandes, they are my last resort for when I run out of ammo, or occaisionally when I get the chance to clear out a group of enemy. Taking out a single enemy with a grenade is a bit cheap, they wouldn't really use grenades like that. (but this isn't real war anyway - hey I had to say that cause if I didn't someone would have flamed me about it being only a game) And what about the maps like Stalingrad, where players stand on the ammo boxes and toss grenades like rice. Perhaps they could limit the speed that you can pick up grenades from ammo boxes to slow that down.

Now throwing grenades through doors and windows to clear out cottages and bunkers, yes that's how you should use them, and if you've tossed all 3 of your grenades asap you won't have any left.

:cya: :cya: :cya:

I know what you mean about the guys that sit on ammo boxes and toss grenades. I've seen a couple people do this for the ENTIRE map on Berlin... start to finish. Not only is it lame, but good god how could it be fun? Think about it, you are basically left clicking for thirty minutes or so and that's it. Never move, never look around, just lay prone and click. Not only that but at certain times it impedes your team more than the enemy. You see it a lot of Omaha Beach if the allies take the second flag. There is almost always some genius who stands in the door of the German bunker behind the left defgun and tosses grenades over the fence (onto the hill leading up to the final flag). Yes... he might kill a few allies with some lucky shots, but most of the time all he is doing is making it VERY difficult for his team to get down the hill and retake the second flag. "But friendly fire is off!" they say. Yes, friendly fire is indeed off, but your grenade still does damage. It either:

- Pushes me back up the hill, making me take twice as long to get down thereby exposing me to more enemy fire.

- Pushes me into barbed wire (this happens A LOT) which does do damage to me. Even if I survive I've got to face the enemy with my health nearly gone already.

- Blows me up in the air/down the hill, where the fall kills me.

My beef is more with the types I described. They just randomly throw their grenades every which direction. They can't see any enemies, they have no clue what they are hitting, nor do they care. I don't mind dying to a grenade, but I do mind dying to a grenade from a guy who obviously had no clue I was even there. He was just randomly tossing grenades hoping for kills.
