Cripes, snipers are a fact of real warfare and that's what BFs about right? If I get sniped I come back and look for the sniper, then it becomes a contest - fun for all the family!! I love snipers :)

my last post was supposed to be what fun is a game w/o some chalenges, which is what mubbers is getting at i think. the point being that if u can run around w/o worring about snipers then the game is too easy.

Sniper bashing is a recurrent theme in several forums. In a general sense, its somewhat justified- snipers scores reflect their value to the team.

Sniper 24 points, 22 kills, 10 deaths. So they have captured 1 flag, 2 more points than kills. An assualt will get 60 48 50- who's more valuable-got the most flags, thus wins the map? Of course value to the team is measured in more than score , obviously- but in a general sense- if you were forced to remove 1 class from the game, most of us, after thought, would remove sniper.

This is very general, don't flame me, snipers have their place, they really are primarily SCOUTS, newer players play the role as sniper rather than scout, I think thats the essence of sniper bashing.

A good scout is responsible for many more deaths than he recieves credit for, credit going to the artillery man, who's fed the body count by the patient scout. Personally, I enjoy knifing snipers,(but not scouts, if you know what I mean) sneak up behind him,where the coward is sniping in (he thinks ) comparative safety, yell something over the chat that both teams can hear, and sink the blade in his ear. Ahhhh... thats why I like this game....

Because like the other guy said, it dosen't matter if you have fifty kills as a sniper, because they spawn right back. If it were real war, this would be very helpful, as real men do not spawn right back. But in the game, they do spawn right back at the flags which snipers avoid like the plauge. If you haven't taken flags, then the only people you've helped is your own score, which dosen't matter in the grand scheme of things. So really the only thing they can do, other than take flags which most snipers NEVER do, is scout for artillery, which also they never do. They don't take flags and never scout for arty, then come on to these forums complaining about why noone likes them, after all, they got 10,567 kills last time.
