View Full Version : GHOST RECON

26th Mar 2001, 11:24 AM
OK... this is such a heated topic that I think it should be a poll.
But remember, that not everyone goes to forums so this is probably only going to be based upon those of us that at least occasionally look.

So.. what is your choice for the Ghost Recon dilema?
Choose an answer
OK - Ok as is. Ghost recon is part of the game.
NOTEAMSAY - Don't allow teamsay when people are in ghost mode.
TEAMVIEW - Don't allow free flying view. Only allow switching view to teammates
TRUST - leave the function alone and trust people to only tell teammates to move out of sniper/camp positions to speed up game.
MOD - Update mod with recon devices (camera's, motion sensors, etc) to allow recon in more of a real world situation.

If you think 2 answers are good.. just vote twice I guess.

you can't vote twice. by the way

but i think just kill team say. i've only really seen it become a problem on long drawn out sniper games. i don't really mind if that last player timer is going and ghosts start telling everyone where somebody is at. just as long as it's done using the general chat.

there are benefits, for example you have those last 2 people and both of them are just a camping away. well nothings gonna happen on it's own so some spectators just need to say hey your both camping, you need to get moving.

I don't understand what you mean by "balanced". Do you think there are other options that should be listed?

please just let this topic die....there have been at least 15 topics on it already, petitions, flame wars, etc.... most people can agree to let the team decide what is best since it their mod. Just lets have a day when ghosting isnt taking up half the message board. I'm really tired of sifting through the whole place....

no no, I'm not being sarcastic. I'm saying I appreciate that he listed all options rather than simply saying "recon! good or bad?" and having an option for good and bad, but nothing else.

I try.. have my own opinoin. but I try to be fair.
And BTW... I figured that this poll would finally kill the issue.

Personnaly.. we need to get some objective servers out there.. CTF or assauly. Then there would be faster more enjoyable games I've only played for about 3 weeks.. but already I have enough of run around and shoot everyone.

I think we should be able to watch our guy...and be locked to him...and still be able to talk with him. I think people complain about the large maps taking forever...with 2 snipers on other sides of the maps....BUT as soon as dynamic maps come out...It will force both teams to meet...1 of those 2 snipers will have to do something to accomplish the mission...IE rescue someone...so he has to be at a single point to do that...so it will force the 2 to meet right off the bat....no more waiting for 10 minutes for them to find eachother.

I agree with team view. If teamsay is disabled but you can still fly around you can still cheat with voice chat programs.
