1st Person View - Trial #3

602 posts in this topic

This sounds Great, fighting someone is so much more fun when you can't see them over walls <3 but 3rd person is still best for driving and walking around <3

Maybe he likes 3rd person. But the question is why does he like it, and why does he dislike 1st person.

Im not going to argue here and spam the thread, but its pretty obvious "I like it" and "I dont like it" are the same.

Well, sniping is very efficiently, compared to close-combat now. And this will improve that proportion, since this doesn't affect snipers as much as the close-quarter soldiers.
That's by now the only negative side I can see by this change.


Exciting, though.

I think it would really improve the combat of the game. Its gonna be bad for some people, because they are really used to third person. But i like the idea of trying it out!

this might affect cops and nato more as they walk around with weapons out all the time to stop people from knocking them down hand cuffing them and stealing all that sweet free gear

The no weapon thing could be abused still, sitting behind a wall with your weapon on your back trying to see people, when you see someone whip it out and shoot them. It sounds good and I'm all for 1st person as it adds more realism but there will abusers to that aspect.

agree with this. Its really hard to RP with civs if you have to stay in first person. Might be something for Bluefor that if the weapon is lowerd it also has a 30 second timing?

3rd person will be available if you are driving a vehicle.

Does this apply to everyone in the vehicle or just the driver? If it only applies to the driver it will be almost impossible to effectivley have more than one person in an mrap.

I gotta agree with Tony here.

As a sniper, you wont be using 3rd person as much as some who is fighting in CQ, so I also feel like sniping will become a bigger problem.

Eh, I don't really like it but I guess you need to please the majority.

Gang initiation is a problem.

I like arma for the 3rd person I mean I will trial it but don't like the idea, just going to make everything slow and more difficult to enjoy in my opinion :(

@DnA is it possible to trial this on just 1 or 2 servers at first?

I'm excited to try it, I can however see the feature being abused though and people just pulling out their weapon when they spot someone around a corner. Or if someone was camping a rock in third person sniping and not breaking cover whilst everyone else was running around in first person not thinking about third person and they get sniped, this would give an unfair advantage in my opinion

That's more or less avoiding the whole idea. The people that don't like it will all sit on one server which will cause an imbalance. More logical for everyone to try it and then for everyone to give feedback.

Pretty much everyone who started out with 3rd person combat and are used to 3rd person probably won't like this change, at least initially.

For those who started out with 1st person only from Arma 2 knows how great of a combat experience it is, and will probably like this.

Given how terrible people are at driving in this game it's probably a good idea to keep driving in 3rd.

I really hope this trial is successful and that it stays!

For those who haven't really tried 1st person, give it a chance!
