I have been playing EOD for about a week and have come upon an interesting situation. It seems that in some servers the chase rear and chase front views are not working. It this typical for some servers or is there a problem with my program/system?

It is simply a matter of what views each server admin wants to use. Some admins :type: disable those views to enhance the realistic experience.

Thank you for the explanation, but i don't see how this would enhance the realistic experience. When you in a vehicle (in EOD) you don’t have the same perspective as you do in real life. The fact its still 2 D probably doesn't help. When you turn your mouse to left or right the turret turns (depending upon the vehicle of course) not just your head or body. Also you have no peripheral vision which makes it even more difficult. That’s why the chase view help us noobs I guess…

THat being said when you are in a vehicle inside the garage of the factory you can see who is coming from around the corner with the external views. The tunnel vision is to counteract the firepower.

I agree that it would make it fair not to know who's around the corner but that to is working for both sides. and for spawn campers it is just deserts when you know he is outside waiting for you to come out and so he plants a charge on your tank.
