So, when do the other factinons get artillery?

Recommended Posts

The rocket technical, when properly used, is an effective artillery platform.  But no other faction has anything that can do the same thing.  Seems like a pretty serious balance issue to me.

 

 


But all the other Factions has more optics and better vehicles.
The rocket techni is a good compansation for the underlaying... right now

Well if they're all as bad as the Insurgent's "artillery" then all factions can have them and a squad from each team can go to the corner of the map and blast each other completely ineffectively xD It'll be like a war with muskets, nobody hits anything.

i can see why using the truck in a one life event is usefull since killing even one enemy weakens the enemy. But on normal round where people can respawn in 45 sec a weapon who kills 1 (or 2 if lucky) guys just isnt worth it.

 

Ok so you show video from a trailer to prove usefullness of a rocket techie???? That video shows nothing since it is a trailer (probally set up) and it cuts just as the killing rocket hits (so not even sure if that squad got killed)!

 

But ok that video is actually the perfect situation for a rocket techie. A squad moving in the open on flat ground with the techie zeroed in perfectly. But this almost never happens in squad. if there is just a little cover around or the ground is a little uneven the techie will kill noone! Uneven ground means people can lie down and techie will then only kill from direct hits. Next problem is that it take so long to zero in and the rockets have such a long travel time that most of the time enemy squad will be in cover before the effective rounds hits.

 

Honestly a RPG guy firing frag rounds are often a million times more usefull than the expensive reload that can only kill people on flat ground techie.

 

hahaha learning curve on BTR and crow?! You mean point at stuff and they die. The only thing you need to learn when using BTR and crow is staying back. Rest is way to easy! Those vehicles are even set up so you can easily one man use them (no delay when shifting from driver to gunner).

 

Lol I made that trailer, and the squad indeed got killed.

A clanmate went 15-2 with Rocket techie only just today on Yeho 2, when was the last time you racked up 15 kills in a single game?

They lost that round btw.  They got pushed all the way back to radio tower.  The arty barrages only suppressed the US forces temporarily.

i think it will change alot once motobikes are added.. due to the fact early forward observation by a spotter or two mean you can effectivly move up the battle line and start your support earlier with more information coming at a faster rate.. also two 3 people max in an arty truck is pretty effective as its enough to build, fire and close spotting.. but once people actually start using grid refs to guide it will become a lot clearer how effective it can be.. but having 9 people huddle around a truck is no good for anyone.
