  • Why's everybody like infantry only?

    Maybe I'm the only one, but I'm consistently disappointed to see the infantry only server being the only one populated.
    Personally, I'm a heli fan. I guess I can see why people pick the infantry only early in the seed, as with low playercount vehicles can be very dominant.
    That said, with 20 vs 20 I think there's plenty of room for fun vehicle teamwork.
    That's my view. Anybody else got opinions? Why is infantry only so popular?

      Re: Why's everybody like infantry only?

      There are a few reasons I think people gravitate toward infantry only, primarily I think because infantry only promotes teamwork moreso than vehicle maps. Now, I'm not saying you can't have good teamwork on vehicle maps, just that it's better on the infantry only maps. Second, and this is more of a personal view, there are only a handful of players that are dominant in vehicles and if you don't have someone on your team that's just as dominant it can quickly get ugly. There are several players that can spend an entire game in the tank or in certain aircraft and never get taken out but it doesn't matter how good of a player you are on the ground you will get owned if you run off and lone wolf it on a TG server. I think in the end infantry only is just more of an equalizer, granted there are a few really good players but for the most part everyone can aim and shoot.

        I honestly dislike Turtleing vehicles. I really dislike how i only have 3 Javelins or 9 SMAWs/RPGs and will get 0% damage on a tank or APC after the firefight just due to someone(s) repairing and it just wastes me... even when I am with a team of engineers. I rather fight someone toe-to-toe even though my average ping is about 300 on the server and I end up suffering GREATLY for that...

          I love infantry only, it allows a squad to focus on more small unit based tactics, instead of worrying about armor or air. Plus its the only time I can single handedly gun down Ven's entire squad.

            Vehicles tend to disrupt teamplay, as squadmembers are more or less "forced" by using vehicles to do unrelated things.

                    Fine, but it was 4 on 1, I got 3. Not a bad run. I love the fact the the Infantry server is being populated. I just wish people would do the same for the rush one.

                        It think it is really fun to play infantry only. I love infantry combat in bf3 and I think it is generally less fun to play with armor.

                          I agree with this, some maps are funner with armor i think though, like operation firestorm was like meant for armor, maybe if it could be contriacted on some maps like spawn time and such. Infantry only does harbor the better teamwork which i love :) and fullmetal, thats a quote from my bio teacher from 9th grade hahahha

                            Infantry only was fun for awhile, then it started getting boring for a few rounds. Maybe because i played on caspian and oman without vehicles so it was sniper city.. I wouldnt mind seeing more urban setting maps on this setting. Maps like oman and wake dont make much sense theyre so big. Khark island, karkand, sharqui all sound good with infantry only.
