    petition for return of 80% health

    I humblely ask that anyone who feels that the 80% health should return post their name and a reason (admins if this is out of line please move or remove)
    I feel that the 80% health should return for many reasons, the first of which is that the so called 1 bullet difference doesn't feel true, second is that if I start shooting someone in the back they have enough time to 180 and pop off a few rounds and kill me instead of them dieing, 3rd is that 3/4 of the kills anymore on our server are M16A3s because lets face it they win everytime at any range in any situation so i feel as if i'm forced to ether join the crowd or get stuck with something that shoots the same caliber with a high rate of fire but takes up to 3 times as many bullets to kill or even just any other gun in general stands no chance enless your lucky.

Sure you can hide them, but 1, it is somewhat difficult to do and 2 you need to find the spots to do it at.

    One thing I see a lot of gunners(2nd seat) do wrong on the server is that they look at the front more often than the back. Gunners are supposed to protect the rear. That is their priority, protecting the tank/apc from the sides and back and let the driver do its job in the front. When coming into contact with an opposing armor piece the gunner needs to get out and start repairing. Also don't shoot the gun if you dont have to. It's loud and it gives you away. Dont shoot armor with it either, it does no good. The 2nd seater is there to rep and for a lookout, not to kill.
    Lets just say some people aren't as smart :)

    I lol everytime because whenever I tank in the tg server I see useless support kits trying to c4 me, which is stupid. More supports try to c4 me than rockets fly towards me, which is, again, not smart.

    Sure, if the driver isnt aware. Maps like bazaar, crossing, damavand, sharqi, the javies are basically useless against a skilled tanker. You just turn a corner and they wont hit you. You dont even have to deploy smokes. Thats why in matches or pubs I just use thermals(especially on lavs). On tanks I put smoke in anyways just for that added security if you are caught in the open by chance. With the tank if you have proper wrenchers(two is a must), you wont even need the smoke.

    For the guy in the armor yes. For the rest of the server, not so much.

    Sensors in BF3 are lame as hell, because there are quite a few that cannot be countered. No EMP grenades like 2142, no stealth camo or squad perk to make you invisible to the magic radar. You can shoot down MAVs, and blow up TUGS, but the fricking rolling death machine can see through walls....and then fire high explosives through them.

    Which is awesome.

    Certainly it's a lot easier to C4/repair tool/EOD bot the tank without the magic third person view.

    noticed this while flying a jet last night, no 3rd person for vehicles on HC which is rightly so.
