Interactive Colors/Standards
« on: November 23, 2017, 08:35:54 am »
Hi, This is a minor suggestion, would it be possible to plant colors, pick them up, and even steal enemy colors just like in M&B NW? It would be a minor detail but,was a significant action historically. Usually if the ensign carrying the colors was shot or otherwise couldn't carry them another man would take his place. It would be of great shame for a regiment to lose it's colors/eagle. Also, the stealing of enemy colors while risky  was highly rewarded. It would certainly add to immersion, there would be no more disappearing flags when the ensign is killed for example.

It'd be great if taking them and giving them to your officer would give you a score boost as well. Maybe even have them drop from said officer or standard bearer if they get killed so you can get them back?

Certainly worth putting on the post release to do list!

Can we then please shoot the lone charging flag bearers on the official servers ...... with friendly fire that is, before they get to the other side ..... On a serious note, if the bearers would be behave like bearers then yes, it would make things interesting. Now a stupid question, how to deal with respawns of flagbearers and their flag?
