  • Atacama Desert Rush: 2nd Stage, B Boat Roof

    My issue is somewhat related to the issue people have with the roof of the lighthouse in the 2nd stage of Valparaiso. We discussed the lighthouse issue in this thread: A poll about the light house, admins weigh in. Both situations are similar: with access to a chopper, the attackers can reach areas inaccessible to the defenders.

    While playing on the the TG server yesterday, the server was Atacama Desert rush, and the attackers advanced to the 2nd stage. The attackers took the chopper and bailed out on the roof of 2nd stage B. For those familiar with the conquest version of Atacama Desert, this location is also known as "UAV Boat". Normally, I don't have an issue with this (while I think it's unfair the attackers can access the lighthouse roof on Valpairaso, I don't think it's a deal breaker), but the 'UAV boat' roof on Atacama is drastically different than the lighthouse: this location has a location advantage to BOTH mcoms. While on the roof, they have a relatively close RPG-sniping location to A. On top of that, they're almost directly above B, meaning they can just drop right down, and attack B from multiple angles.

    I could talk about it more, and talk about what the defense can do to counter this attack, but in the end, it forces the defense to adjust unnaturally, especially when you take into account the HIND and a broken VADS.

    Is the view on this any different from the lighthouse?

    P.S. I constantly get the automatically-adjust-to-center bug on the VADS, rendering it unsuable. The HIND was owning us, and given that no one else was using the VADS, im assuming others had the same problem. While we can still take it down with a tracer and rockets, it's very annoying that a counter to an attackers asset is broken. Does anyone know a fix to this? I've searched, and the most popular solution is to delete the 'BFBC2' folder in 'Documents', but that doesn't seem to work for me.

    I have the same problem with the VADS, as for the spawn point on top of the back of the ship, I think that it is not as bad as the lighthouse roof. If you go to the back side of the bow of the ship. you can see up there just fine. The other day someone did that to us, and 2 snipers with arty strikes forced them all down in about 20 seconds.

        Let the VADS stay broken!

          I would like that map (RUSH) get removed from the rotation along with White Pass (RUSH).. Poorly designed piece of... ... If you ask me...

              Is it this ship? I spawned into a chopper just as it blew up and landed on the mast.

              I agree with Nomad and HiTestFest. There is no real cover for the attackers from arty strikes and the defenders own snipers/engineers will make short work of them. However, if people are wasting team assets to get there, that's another matter.
              We are not apologetic for who we are. What we can do, however, is educate people so that they fear us for the right reasons.

                Seems like a balance. Wasted assets to gain a position that CAN be taken out with arty. The Atacama Desert is a great map with the open territory between objectives, but with the VADS kibbled a good chopper pilot can and frequently does dominate the enemy, which is a pity.
