  1. Stat tracking

    I would like to see "Teamwork" based stats added... % of time digging up emplacements + time running logis = Teamwork score....there should be rewards for Teamwork play. If this is a tactical shooter you should be rewarded for tactical play which includes support roles and support functions. Having a spotlight on K/D ratio will not promote teamwork.
  2. Excited for v15

    I think in order for OWI to make coin they are in a position to placate the masses. I do believe as they code the things they are experimenting with they are taking note. A hardcore mode should be just that ... hardcore, tactical and a much more punishing. Much of the ideas that would be in the main branch would be for the average player where as the hardcore mode would be for "us". I would like to see both modes "COD mode" and "Hardcore mode" because I would rather have that, than OWI not being able to continue to exist due to cash flow. That being said it would be a bugger to code. All the settings would have to be adjusted via variables or switches and not be based on core mechanics, which would have to be shared.

    Google can KMA. Never.
  4. Voice Lines?

    I can see them being used as a ruse (red herring). Me = Prone with AR Voice line: "RELOADING" TANGO: Ahha...got him red handed ME= Full of Shit TANGO=dead Seriously don't see the use much...would rather have some taunts...Allow the unarmed player to flash the moon or players to yell taunts.
  5. Time to give up the shovel

    I have a simple solution to this issue of "Anti E-Tool" bias..... Make the E-Tool dual purpose. A weapon and something to build / un-build deployables. The E-Tool is a melee weapon of last resort but...it would be fun to have a knife vs shovel fight :).
  6. Alpha 13 Released

    My take on this is .... Game movement speed "Could" be a between V12 and V13 with some added rules or transitions. Fast (ie 10%) if your suppressed or short burst speed increase for road crossings (ie Adrenalin rush) and a fall back to V12 speed after this burst. It would be more realistic. Players as pure riflemen are faster than a AR gunner hauling around a hog. Little tweaks to the speed could make the immersion much better. This is still alpha and I would bet that A14 makes some changes based on observed meta and player feedback. There has to be a balance somewhere. Most of what was added right now was fodder to placate us as the Devs had there hands full with the engine upgrade. I expect now, with new tools the updates will not only come much faster but have real content (heli's / maps / armor). Oh...and Gatzby I still want Pen flares and to be able to use my E-Tool as a melee weapon.
  7. Anti-material rifle

    Cant you tell by my picture .
  8. Pen Flares

    Any chance we can get colored pen flares (red,green)? It would be nice for immersion and for ID of blufor elements to reduce friendly fire incidents. They may not see much use in vanilla games but one life and organized events would use them a lot I would think. Assault timing and calls for retreat ect ect.
  9. Anti-material rifle

    Unconventional forces want better mortars. Better IED options to combat armor, B-10 (Larger SPG) and maybe a KPV 14.5 heavy.
  10. Squad and Google's Stadia?

    Change the name from "Squad" to "Mob".....
  11. Ragdoll Overhaul

    Personally I will miss the spastic (sp?) Rag Dolls and the Space Launch Rag Dolls....always brought some levity to the game. like jumping on the truck wheels when its over turned and launching it into the stratosphere... Some of the little quirks however annoying can also be endearing
  12. Not really a faction...more of a mod. ****Squad Vietnam****. Wouldn't take to much effort on US side (camo / add M14/M16 variants, maybe a 870 shotgun) and a South east Asian faction with AK variants / RPG's ect.

    Just make UN peace keeper forces ....give them blue hats and bb guns.
  14. "Demoralize enemy with propaganda or taunts "...Well I have to admit that every time someone is spamming everyone with some hot mic music mix-tape, I get pretty demoralized. I can't hear my SL or my other squad mates. It just ain't that cute. If it were used in the context of passing time in the truck or something like that I don't see a problem...but there are certain age groups who just can't help themselves from be rectums and abusing such "features". Yea yea...I know you can mute them...(if they are in your squad).
  15. We need more maps!

    You were very general and the solution was just an attack on the devs...(hire some competent map designers)...Then you attacked someone else...I can see your making friends in the community quickly . I would suggest popping smoke and try finding some cover for awhile. Go play some PR.
