    I'm sorry, I dont see that as a banable offence.
    If it comes to a majority vote of the admins agreeing to ban that, then I will update the rules.
    Use mortar of your own against them, flank, etc.

    hopefully mortars themselves will be nerfed in due course.

    At the moment

    mortars have:

    knowledge of the battlefield via some sort of map showing where everyone is

    (afaik, need clarification from someone who knows)

    infinite ammo

    no maximum/minimum range afaik.

    how do you flank someone in an area you cant get to because it is out of bounds?

    They get an overview of the map and have 'limited' range, depending on the map it can be hardly any of it or a lot of it.

    They see anyone who shoots or who is spotted by their team.

    And yes infinite ammo

    I don't think mortar's are that bad to be honest. Most times you get hit by them it's coz there team has been spotting you for a while and you're in the open.

    I don't like mortar in spawn then. I've played rush servers and killed attackers using mortar, but if defenders use mortar it's almost always GG, especially on a map like Bazaar. Other maps less so.

    Night, I'll do stuff tomoz morning if i have a chance.

    And by stuff I mean check youtube videos of mortar on HC.

    Grand Bazzar Rush is the only map where mortars ruin the game. Everything else is fine. If you are getting hit by a mortar, get a teammate to counter-battery. And it makes you keep moving rather than camp. It's a good thing. :thumbup:

    You know tbh, I support this. They should have just had systems like 1942 and bf2 whereby it's not terribly hard to unlock the final weapons. At the moment it's just effing stupid with 235823752834752435e358395835 unlocks per weapon.

    Because someone's forcing you to get every unlock per weapon? :rolleyes:

    It's kinda like the stars with weapons in BC2 — you find a few guns you like, get plats on those, then at least give everything else a go (at least a gold star). :thumbup:

    sorry for the noob question but what does uncap mean? a bit pissed with teammate (don't remember his name, and wouldn't bother) stealing vehicle while you're repairing it and ran it straight to AT mines. :rolleyes:

    Uncap = uncapturable. The spawn that can't be captured (the one that you start the round at). If a team manages to trap you all in there then it's game over so many admins will kick players shooting into the uncap. Some also object to shooting out of the uncap (because you can't be flanked).

    If you are kicking people from shooting into cap (which is acceptable) then leaving only another mortar to take it out means mortars from within camp isn't acceptable.

    Just clarifying that you mean if an enemy caps the oppositions AA.

    A long-standing BF tradition. Might as well try and ban teabagging.

    yes, enemies capping opposition AA.


    I like loading vehicles up with c4... it's like you're reinventing the age-old fire ship....

    It was frowned upon on every BF2 and BC2 server I played on, it's a cheap tactic

    Typo sorry, meant to say I was pissed over it not being fixed. I didn't ask a question, so don't need an answer to anything.

    Don't be getting all narky lads, not having a go at anyone. Just saying I'm pissed off too lol.



    I used to do the C4 thing all the time. No one ever complained about it lol.

    It also bad on Seine Crossing. where they can sit in the uncap and still hit half the map, what makes it harder is that pretty much every corner can be a choke point in this map.

    Got to agree with this, as much as it pained me as a tank driver it was my own fault that i didnt get a round off before he got close enough to me. I actually disliked them less that the pricks that would do it on foot and could appear out of nowhere. At least a jeep has to come via a road :p
