It needs to be addressed. I do not care how you snipe. I do not care where you snipe. I do not care how much you spot. I do not care how good of a shot you are and how bad others are at it. I do care WHEN you snipe, though.

Simply put, the sheer number of snipers on objective based servers is getting out of hand. Selecting a kit that excels at recon and long range shooting is going to ultimately be detrimental for your team if there already is an excess of snipers. Teams that have an overabundance of snipers DO NOT WIN conquest rounds. Teams that have an overabundance of snipers DO NOT WIN rush rounds. Again, I do not care how good you spot or how often you place tugs and soflams, if your team DOES NOT NEED A SNIPER, then please do not select it.

Or at the very least, join TDM/SDM. If your only concern is your K:D with a sniper rifle, do not join an objective based server.

The funny thing is, usually on those sniper-filled teams, there are barely any that are using MAV or tugz to help the others. Just the sound of a bunch of single shots like a god damned wild west show.

Aggressive snipers earn my respect when they arm M-COMS, defend it until it blows, and then places a spawn beacon behind enemy lines.

But snipers pick people off from a distance. They defend objectives from 1000m away. They spot enemies for better battlefield situational awareness. When you see a sniper camping on the tower on caspian, he's clearly doing more to help the team than you are...


Wait, what the hell did I just type?

By that second sentence, I was about to explode. I thought I had stumbled onto r/battlefield3. Thankfully you seemed to appear to be a sane and rational human being by the end.

I agree! How dare you think that I am a sane or rational thinking human being! I resent that remark!

Which is why I cant stand using recon without SKS or M39 with kobra.

I'd probably help the team more with just 93R and nothing else than most recons.

something about the M39, I love it, it reminds me of the M14.

for some reason its pin point accurate with the iron sights or the 6x scope

but when I throw on the ACOG it sucks and can't hit the broad side of applejack's barn

Funny as I can recall me and my platoon members were running around with Recon class and uses Pistol only (Someone on our TS suggest that as all of the opponent are kinda easy for us) to win the entire Rush round.

And No, Conquest mode is not a objective based game. Its a kill and bleed out ticket to win game, that is why you can see so many Recon class camping on top of the hill.

Recon won't benefit much from Rush & Squad Rush mode if they choose to camp too far away from the objective, that is also why I do not see much Recon on Rush matches.
Work hard, play hard.

too many snipers in a game that has a sniper class, and having too many snipers being detrimental to the team, that's a first.

Not quite sure if your being sarcastic, a smug twit, or serious. Either way discussing it on the forums is better than doing nothing.

I don't see why DICE can't implement a server controlled sniper limit. I am willing there are loads of server that would like to limit the number of snipers that can spawn at a given time. Tripwire had a limit with RO and not a single person complained. When running a server you can adjust a multitude of variables, vehicles, spawn rates, health regen rate...why not the number of spawnable recons?

Not at grabbing flags, or arming/disarming mcoms. Sorry 'brah' but it ain't true. I'll take a medic over a static recon any day.
