I say as long as both types of players have a community to play what they want.
Bare in mind, it's important that those who want 1st person view, take action now cause in GR2, we had the option, but most servers were 3rd person view.
I asked in a thread both here and GR.net about being forced with a FPWV. For a ladder, yes, there should be a no weapon view ladder as well as a weapon view ladder. If those who want to use FPWV want to play those who don't, they need to do without IMO.
Ghost Recon 3 Interview
DS: Will the PC be stuck with the FPWV? If it is kept as an option, will the player have a setting to override a server's setting, so that this view can't be forced upon the player in MP?
CA: I bet 'WhiteKnight' (of Ghostrecon.net) asked that question didn't he?
DS: Errrrrrr....yes.....I think so.....it certainly does sound like a question he'd ask
CA: View options have not been finalized yet.
While not specific for the PC, I am sure he and GRIN are aware that people do not want to be forced a view they do not like.
Well UBIRazz has stated in another post that UBI is watching our comments. I hope UBIRazz is giving our input to them
there you go
If you look at the reply by Haulden, looks like we will have at least one ladder that is 1st person view
So both types of players can be happy
TCZ has always been flexible and open in that way. If there is a game and a gametype for which demand exists, they will make every attempt to entertain it.
They recently launched a new site with a new laddering system which no longer uses points, rather you now compete for positions. As well 2 types of ladders were introduced. A "Pick-Up" ladder which enables any team to match as much or as little as they want, and a "Scheduled" ladder for the serious gamers which requires a minimum of 1 match per week.
I don't want that stupid 3rd person view, but i do want to see my gun, at least when aiming/firing.
GR3 should have a system like this: no aiming/firing = no gun show up, you press a key to aim, you get your iron sights, if you got zoom, scope show up, when you fire, you see all the gases, muzzle flashs, the moving parts of you gun and empty catridges extracting. And when you need to reload, you actually look at you gun and replace the mag/lock&load. That should give a little bit more of realism then just the extreme no gun view at all.
