  • PSA: Rrepairing in the UCB

    Just wanted to bring to attention an UCB rule that maybe some people are unaware of. If you leave the UCB and then go back into the UCB (say for repairs) you are fair game to be shot at. UCB is only a safe zone for spawning players.

    Just an FYI, its been questioned twice this weekend so I figured I'd put it out here for everyone to read.

      If the UCB was always a safe haven could u imaginen how many heli's snipers and other whatevers would stay there?

        It's a fine line.

        Example: You are in a dogfight with a chopper. He turns tail to run to main. He starts to land. You kill him.

        That is OK. Just be careful and keep good sportsmanship in mind.

          Definitely. Also want to point out that, if say a tank is shooting at your helo from its UCB, it's also fair game to engage the tank back.

              If he's that close to the UCB, the TOWs emplaced outside the UCB should be quite capable of killing him. If he's found a blind spot, all your armor spawns there and one of them should kill him quickly. Or get your RPG out and go hunting.

              If he's close enough to shoot down aircraft as they claw for altitude and speed, he's close enough to be easily killed.

              The UCB, to my way of thinking, is a safe haven for spawning and collecting your squad and your thoughts. If you have spawned, lifted off in a chopper, turned toward the front lines, and begun moving out then you are in fact in game, IMO. Obviously if you're getting shot on the pad or directly above it that's not acceptable, but if you have exited the fence of the airfield on Caspian, for example, then you are fair game IMO.

              The game has large out of bounds areas that aircraft can fly through but ground vehicles and infantry may not enter. Use them.

                Im surprised that in BF3 we arent enforcing the "dont shoot in or out rule" like we do in PR considering 75% of the time in BF3 you can hot the main from across the map.

                  Flags are too close to the main for that. It'd get real wonky real fast.

                    Shouldn't rules clarifications be coming from the Admin team not the playerbase?

                      Beyond that we also get a lot of "I agree" or "in my opinion...". Personal opinions don't matter in server rules. At all.

                        Hey ya'lls clarification that this maybe shouldn't be a clarification but instead a talk is excellent. Good job!

                          Admins are talking about this issue, rest assured.

                          For now:

                          Don't use the UCB as a safe haven
                          Avoid firing from the UCB whenever possible.
                          Do not fire into the UCB unless you have a valid target (someone shooting from UCB).
