Default [MOH] sniping has ruined this game

Well over the weekend it has reached a fraking tipping point!

Every server, every match was dominated by snipers not moving forward and not helping achieve objectives!

DICE had better fix this and nerf the sniper by at least 60% or there is no point playing this game. It is just a waste of time.

Sniping in BF2 and 2142 was well balanced it was a bloody skill to be good at it. With this release and BFBC2 its just ridiculous and shuts the game down so no one can achieve objectives or move forward (and yes I know how smoke works - but when you are the only one moving forward smoke does precious little).

Call me when its fixed.

I played a few today where only 2 or 3 of the 12 on my side were moving up, the rest sit back and rack kills for zip while we died and spawned all the way back.
I did get into one where the team moved up well and spawns kept at the lead but those games are few and far between.

Absolutely agree, I won't play again until the patch comes out on the 2nd of November and if the sniping isn't any better I won't be back for good.

If they got rid of the KDR stats no one would play sniper!

Will they ever bring out a seriouse FPS without sniping? IMO sniping often adds no value to any FPS I play and often just slows down and ruins the game.

agree with Raw they need to remove it ... i have played so many games on MOH and BFBC2 where the game is full of snipers and no one is moving forward ... sometimes i want to TK them as i re-spawned on a sniper at back of map because he has moved up ...

the no sniper maps are good but not many spots and hard to find servers .. it brings the game back to life once they remove these useless players who insist on camping and not doing obj ...

Yep, very frustrating. Especially when you only get one smoke nade and you got 150m of ground to cover. I don't think a sniper kit is required either. The combat scopes on the smg and assault rifles are powerful enough to be used from distance as an alternative.

Patch tommorrow, couple of days of death, then its time to change games. Farewell MoH. 'Twas fun while it lasted.

The snipers might be a pain in the ass but if you have a look at the maps and the equipment you carry you can get around under cover and if need be the use of smoke is helpful. Granted some of the spawns where you get picked off can be fixed by an invincible delay for like 2 seconds when you spawn.
I think the biggest Issue I have had so far is no inbuilt comms or the grouping of friends.
That is the sort of stuff that promotes teamwork and when doing so you can seriously P@wn in this game.

There are snipers in every combat FPS thats why they inveted the knife.....or in this game the hatchet

Milt it isn't the killing them part it is that is all they do sit back and do nothing but work on their KDR .. it is a issue in BFBC2 and MOH ... we are not talkign about 1 or 2 we are talking majority of team hence why they have made no sniper rule... this make the game stagnate and no one can move forward to complete obj
