NEVER!!!!! Put Recons on an ASSAULT (to all GE Generals)

Recommended Posts

The picture below demonstrates what happens when you put Recon ATs on an Assault.

 

What happens: pleb rank 0-1 recons who want to play their recon in war will fill they game.

Problem here? They dont do anything to the battle: Their gear is bad. They lack skill. They sit around somewhere - but not on objective. And they fill the game and we have less infantry to attack.

 

Conclusion: DONT put Recons on Assault.Only use Infantry - if needes Tanks on special ocasions. 

 

Since Reto gave specialists for free we have plenty of noob players that want to grind their stuff in war. The more toys are in the game - the more specialists are spammed.

Sending armour or fighters before a battle has been filled is far worse. And even sending them in later can call for disaster. Every general with a sizeable force knows that.

I actually sometimes send fighters to a battle if I want my team to lose that battle for strategic reasons (for instance if they are in danger to get cut off). Works rather reliably...

Amen, but he is right that too many Infantry chills in Bushes and Recons go full in to help us in Points.

I try to only put recons on defenses, but sometimes if you really want something to pop you gotta spam it with toys, especially on US and SU

 

Works when you have a small group of expert players that will drag your team to victory regardless of being sagged down by completely useless specialist noobs.

 

Also sometimes I just want to level up my recon planes, selfishly knowing it's going to certainly ruin the match....

Pft I spam my entire army into whatever I want most of the time to keep the useless plebs away.

Recon AT's with IFV's against an enemy with no armour of any kind can be helpful. I've assisted in taking many towns operating a Puma or 222. Hell even one time I used the Sdkfz 253 for defecates n grins and still took the Bridge C4.

What's wrong with having matches with everyone playing recon, or the only resource is recon? Ahh remember the good ole days.

I like to see a few Recon units, a few Armor units, and a few Air units available in war fights if possible..... in many games they're needed.  But infantry rules this game and Recon, Armor, and Air should be added to SUPPORT infantry, not take it's place.  Seems like SMG Recons are somewhat of a waste of a slow-to-respawn, expensive class that can't carry much.  Same with infantry-tankers and para-pilots.  Also is annoying to see Recon acting as infantry instead of guarding the flanks, sneaking into unguarded objectives, and countering enemy snipers (what they do best), especially when your team is taking lots of sniper fire.     

 

When I enter a war game with lots of Recon, Tankers, and Pilots we almost always get our butt kicked.  And these are the games when the chat line gets ugly about "noobs".

generals usually dont put them in its the randoms ...if gens do...usually to get it started, win or loss... the problem is the players lack self discipline and situational awareness and the urgency of some battles... but in the state of the game is in now, who really cares

 

as for the asian comments....they are new and dont know how to play...they need to level up recon too ...they will always do noobish moves ... over a year later they still dont get it... russians havent gotten the concept for 4 yrs ..so i dont expect the asians to get any better.... long fight = fun and growth...5 min fights no one makes anything...their loss even though they win lol

i guess when you have a bonus you take it for granted ... gg reto smh

Bumped for all to read.  Good post.  Notice this all the time and I will not push in my APC's when 100 recons show up at skirmishes also. SU side is worse though.

we need to unite and go on specialist extermination spree!!! next time you see recon, tanker, pilot who got in your battle via mm go and start doing your work one of two things will happen

1. youre succesful he leaves or BETTER YET resources are used up and hes kicked out by reto

2. you get kicked by reto

should reto catch on our plans and ban you use their own weapon against them next time you see tanker, pilot, recon or even grounded para submit a ticket for griefing

 

specialists is huge tumor for this game that keeps growing so lets come together and remove it easiest thing we all can do is not even deploy specialists

 

infantry experience is already trash bcus of reto lets make their experience shirty too

 

HEIL INFANTRY!

GL trying to teach this 99% of new generals. 

 

Also it does apply for every source and every map. Just send your specialized units into battle, when its full of players.
