    Scopes being removed from Soldiers

    I never tried to buy a second scope on one soldier, but such a warning would be nice. Just like a confirmation screen before buying anything would be nice. It's rare that people equip two scoped weapons on one soldier.

    Scopes being removed from Soldiers

    Did you put the scope on your G43 or k98 on the same soldier perhaps? The scope is shared, but you cannot put it on multiple weapons at the same time. So you may still have it.
  3. I too perceive the heavy set badge as gamebreaking. It much more powerful than any of the other badges in infantry vs infantry combat (and also vs recons and paratroopers), which makes it the default badge for any combat soldier. And I don't think it's good for the badge diversity and choice if there is one 'default' badge that overrules most others. I do however not request this badge to be removed as soon as possible. I think it needs to stay in it's current form until the badge (and other badges) get rebalanced. First, it's useful/necessary to have a badge that specialises in surviving a single shot of OHK rifles. The HS badge fills that role well, but does on top of that increase survivability in every other situation as well which makes it too powerful. If we just remove the most powerful badge, the next most powerful badge would show up that then needs 'removing' for a balanced game. Not the way to go. Not only the HS badge is too powerful, Flak Jacket is much more unbalanced for pilots, but has no effect on most of the game so isn't perceived as a problem as the HS badge is. We need a badge rework.
  4. You're right, a lot of the people are unhappy. On the forums. I feel like the forums have become a place where people want to outdo others in crying how unhappy they are with changes. It's become an echo chamber of unhappy people. Not sure if the same situation exists for the majority of the people in-game.
  5. Like I said, some people are never happy. While some people might prefer their current playstyle, others would prefer weaker tanks while others want stronger tanks. You're never going to make all of them happy.
  6. I think the big problem with 'massive disapproval' is that there will always be massive disapproval for changes because 1. some people are never happy and 2. people want completely different things. The fact that Reto regularly releases updates that contain bugs doesn't help of course.

    BATTLE OF DUNKIRK - RIFLE UPDATE & WARTORN SKINS

    @Reto.Hades Any idea why it is impossible to redeem these skins on paratroopers or recons?

    BATTLE OF DUNKIRK - RIFLE UPDATE & WARTORN SKINS

    Oh that's strange. Did you count some staged battles perhaps? Only war counts. I'm not sure how RTS battles added up, whether they can count in addition to FPS battles or are on a separate counter, but with 20 war FPS matches won I was offered to redeem the voucher today.

    BATTLE OF DUNKIRK - RIFLE UPDATE & WARTORN SKINS

    Reto, a few questions. 1. How long can we wait before redeeming the skins? 2. Was it intentional that these skins can only be redeemed on infantry characters, even though recons and paratroopers start with a SA rifle as well? 3. If it was intentional, why didn't you tell us so in the posts? 4. If it was not intentional, will it be fixed within the time limit of question 1? I fought for those 20 wins to earn the SVT-40 skin for my paratrooper, but redeeming is impossible.

    The statement was in the quote following the part you quoted. It's the first paragraph of this thread.

    BATTLE OF DUNKIRK - RIFLE UPDATE & WARTORN SKINS

    That's good to hear! Still, I can't choose the right soldier.

    BATTLE OF DUNKIRK - RIFLE UPDATE & WARTORN SKINS

    Yes that was pretty clear from the start, see The post however doesn't mention anywhere that these skins are for infantry only. The weapon skin is tied to the character you give it to, so you cannot move it to another soldier later. Except if you promote that character to general.

    BATTLE OF DUNKIRK - RIFLE UPDATE & WARTORN SKINS

    I haven't dared to 'cancel' it yet. I completely agree and have only half an idea which random soviet name corresponds with which soldier for me. I recognise some by their camouflage or badge, but that's it. Sadly none of those soldiers are my paratrooper that I wanted to choose. So I exited the game again instead of cancelling.

    BATTLE OF DUNKIRK - RIFLE UPDATE & WARTORN SKINS

    Thanks! Just gotta grind the last half 17->18 and then grind another HSG SA sniper with Amphibious vehicle and stuff to replace him... but that should work. But seriously, I'd like Reto to fix this.

    BATTLE OF DUNKIRK - RIFLE UPDATE & WARTORN SKINS

    Seems you can redeem the skins now, but only for infantry for some reason.
