Riflemen
« on: January 27, 2018, 01:43:54 am »
The Public Server are empty , one Main Reason is the total overpowerd Rifflemen , cut him on 5 each Team or delete this "Supermen".
If you are Atacking 90 % of your Deaths are Riffelmen, its totaly useless.

Riflemen are on the list to be nerfed, as far as I know.

I tend to agree, there should be fewer riflemen for the current server populations.

Maybe the number of riflemen slots could scale with how many people are playing line infantry on a team? I don't know the perfect ratio.

idk why people cry so much about riflemen, is just about the same thing than any other unit with musket except for the smaller circle which btw doesn't really make a great  change if you actually know how to aim your musket.

I don't see how you can hit with the musket and not the rifle.

well it is historically accurate the longest baker rifle shot which is the rifle used by the 95th rifles during the napoleonic wars was 200m i'm pretty sure but i know what you mean they can be very annoying  :)

The problem is the Weapon is totally overpowerd.
I talk only over the Public Servers ( not line Battles if you like ti use it ) if you playing there you have no chance to atack , 10 Riffles hit all , i see and try this every day and loosing the fun and all my Friends too if i talk to there all saying the same.
I can Pick the Riffle in every Game cause i join fast and can Pick the Riffle , it is totaly easy to have 10:1  or 20:1 in a 20 Min Game , you need no Skill for this , but i like it more to Play as Line to have a good Gamefeeling.
If you play as Line you are only a Living Target , if you Atack you die nonstop , and pls , isee this everyday.
You dont must delete the Riffle , cut it to 5 on the Official Server , that would be helpfull for the Game on Public Servers.

Btw try to stay in a Line on a Public Server and you  see what will happens than.. :))

you can pull the same score with a musket, let's not forget that most of public maps are for close range fights and skirmishes. the only advantage for me to pick a rifleman is because you can be more sneaky in specific maps. other than that is not so hard to perform the same shots with any other class (except pistol ones). Roleplay in lines is cute and all that but in public servers you don't have that as there's not really a mechanic to force the players to do so in such way.

then again i think people just gets salty because of few skilled riflemen.

IMO everything would be fine if you'd just increase significally time rate for reloading rifle. I heard that it took a much longer time to do it because of special bullet type. Also, i heard that shooter had to hit ramrod with hammer in some cases, but not sure, maybe it's just a myth?

They're likely going to make the reload speed longer, that's all.

It would be realistic. The musket is twice as fast as the rifle. The rifle is twice as accurate as the musket.
