    new carbine sound

    Sounds like an electric typewriter on crack to me. Of course, I've only heard electric typewriters when they weren't on crack. Well, at least to my knowledge they were not abusing drugs.

    The game will die in this way

    Haha, you show your age with that expression. Of course, so do I by knowing it. I miss the game that was prior to the October 2018 terrain/vehicle update, (Update 1.12 - Deploy! Drive! Destroy!) that slowed everything down and made vehicle play much less fun. I'd much rather have a motorcycle that looses control at top speed than one that goes a little faster than sprint speed when off of the roads. I think I'm around 2200 hours at this point (Started playing Sept 2016), and without looking, I guess I have 700+ hours in tanks/planes. Of those 700+ hours, about 40 of them have come after the terrain/vehicle update. I just don't like it. I'll use them occasionally, but nothing like before that update. My list of how to start improving the game: Hire a map maker, fix the terrain, create new Assault maps, fix/improve RTS. The game has enough toys, fix the core of the game. Then work of spawn timers/locations and specialist spam issues. How to actually balance the addition of SU. Fix balance of captured weapons. Tear out update 1.12 that they blew all of the investment money on. I like this game, I really do, and I want to see it succeed, but some of these years old issues have driven away thousands of players.
  3. That's a prime example of why I stopped playing war. I just prefer to not worry about my AT's being wasted. At least the US won after wasting the resources. 45 tanks and 58 recons spawned. Was probably a pretty big drain of war funds for those guys. At best if you remove all tank and infantry kills, the recon players could have had a 7/1 k/d, which is not good at all for a recon. I don't even know if they would have broke 2/1 based on the numbers there. There needs to be a skill timer on specialist classes for war. "Sorry, you spawned 3 recon in 6 minutes, you obviously suck, so infantry only for the rest of the match."

    Game just shuts down when i join match

    If you can, try what I do to fix the issue. I posted it in this thread: https://heroesandgenerals.com/forums/topic/106375-action-client-will-not-run-off-of-gpu/

    Action Client will not run off of GPU

    I posted this in another thread a few weeks ago. Might work for you. -- I have the same issue, but I found a way to "trick" it into working. I run a laptop that has a 1660TI, but I have the FPS application run on a second, larger monitor. What I did was in the NVidia control panel, I set the heroesandgenerals.exe to run with the integrated Intel chipset. With that set and in the Windows settings having the laptop screen as my main monitor, I launch the game client (flash menu, soldier selection). Once the game is up and running, but before I join a battle, I will go into the Windows settings and make my second, larger monitor my main display. Once you do that, you can find a battle and it will launch the FPS client on my larger monitor. Funny thing is, it will also use the NVidia 1660TI and not the Intel chip even though it's set for Intel. I had tried everything else, and just stumbled upon that by accident. Good luck.

    Do you want Fast reload nerf? (From 40% to 30%)

    I would like an application to join the "Silent Majority" clan. They always get what they want.

    Update 1.16.2 - Captured Weapons and More!

    Pros: Fixed badges Fixed roads Cons: Everything not included in the Pros section. You asked for feedback on Reddit and out of 42 posts total, 3 were for the captured weapons and at least 20 were against it. That doesn't include another thread that was started by someone other than a RETO that the majority spoke out against it. Here on the forums it seemed pretty split. I would think something as major as this, you would want at least 75% of your playerbase to be for it. Once again that mythical silent majority won out. Update overall: 0/10
  9. Easiest and best solution is to just not add captured weapons.

    If/ Then

    Yes, health does need reduced. 1 shot by all tank cannons to jeep, bikes and civ trucks. 2 shots for cargo/apc. 1 shot to all planes(autocannons will need tweaked for everything). 4-8 penetrating shots max to kill tanks (health based on category and tier). Find an actual purpose for AT rifles. Remove ALL spawn timers. IMO the spawn timer is worse than the "tank spam". Remove spawn timers, and you will probably have people waste resources so fast it will difficult to finish a 30 min match without running out of tanks and planes. Crazy idea of the day: Keep tanks the same except when it's tank vs tank combat, and give them Adams conefire.
  11. I have this happen a lot, but I think it is similar to the terrain issue when you are at long range with another player that is prone on or near a ridge. You can see their body, but you can't hit them due to the ridge being higher than what it is rendered in game. Unfortunately, they can shoot you all day long. Similar to the floating prone man/floating tank on a ridge bug when looking at them at extreme distance. I also get headshot all the time when running into an enemy player. Both of us bury the muzzle of our guns in each others chest, it looks and sounds like I fire first, get a wound, but then they fire and score a headshot on their first round.

    Should Generals be playable?

    Except it would be the fastest ending game type ever. 20 Seconds for initial spawn, 30 seconds to 1 minute to traverse map on a motorcycle to the general spawn point, dodging noobs that don't defend. 2 seconds to double zook/shreck the generals vehicle to oblivion. Game Over. Fix AT and you have a decent idea here. Generals should be able to join matches, but as an overview player. Calling out commands for certain squads to attack or defend certain points, having the ability to mark on the map "spots" that have been relayed by recon of tanks/apc's, things like that. IMO, recon and tankers with binoculars should be the only players that can spot. Ability to lock or open up different spawn zones to funnel attack lines. Available only to players with 1k+ hours in game. By that point, you should understand how it works.
  13. My understanding is that Tight Grip basically keeps the conefire smaller for repeated shots. The thing is, it starts with the first shot being in the smallest cone that the badge creates for that weapon, thus increasing the accuracy. I feel this to be true due to how far I can hit vehicles and planes with it. Again, this is based off what I have read elsewhere and my personal feel for how it shoots with the badge.
  14. What about tight grip? I have read before that it was essential for the PTRD.

    Unpleasent gun names?

    That's great! My US recon's 1903 is named that as well. I name almost all of my guns after songs. Then there is my zooka "Sweet Christmas".
