Question Kill Cams?


Simple question.

Do you think Planetside 2 should have "kill cams"?

The upside is that it is a great learning tool. "Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

On the downside, I can see how a sniper, who after getting their sniper spot all set up, now has their location exposed after getting 1 kill.

So, what are your thoughts on it?

No, from experience of how it is exploited in battlefield series it would only further in complication if it were in PS.

Re: Kill Cams?


I'm neutral for it but I think I'm more leaning towards no because like you said, it could give away your position.

Kill cams are nifty, but I don't think they fit in PS.

This is why I quit playing Battlefield, so I voted no.

Because the big orange tracer wasn't a big enough of a hint.

I'd say no, simply because the guy that killed you will probably get what's coming to him in a few moments. If it's a sniper, you just dance around and wait for the shot.

Re: Kill Cams?


Nah, like people said it helps give away peoples positions. Especially for snipers and cloakers.

Re: Kill Cams?


wtfno... its ok in death match style fps games (even though i hate it in those games too). why should we penalize someone for being stealthy and knowing how to conceal themselves just because some people are not good enough and QQ too much about sniper fire.

The biggest percent of players in FPS games I think are the ones that run around full speed guns blazing bunny hopping and strafing left and right. While a smaller percent likes to take cover, pick their shots, or "camp" as a lot of players call it. Just because the majority of FPS players like to run around we should not make tools to support everyone to play this way. Camping is a style of play, I dont wanna see PS2 become just a really large deathmatch. I want to see people taking cover, working in teams, using suppressive fire. I want to see actual battle lines being made and fighting over one inch of ground not a huge gaggle fuck of players running around with a shotgun out spraying rounds. No kill cams let the snipers and cloakers have their fun.

Re: Kill Cams?


1. The giant tracers in PS gave your position away admirably. There was no such thing as a sneaky kill. Except, possibly, for flak vs air. Cloakers can have their position given away easily since they just killed you.. You knew where they were then.

2. Kill cams come in two varieties. Some show the killer, some show you being killed.

3. Cashfoyogash: PS was never really about that sort of tactical gameplay. I'd say even the battlefield games were closer to that ideal than PS was. Its a run around full speed guns blazing game a lot of the time.

I vote no though, just because they are annoying.

One of the host of No votes. Besides from the obvious artificial free intel, it doesn't suit the feel of this kind of game. Killer cams, these days, are more for showboating.

Who's better than you?
This guy *zoom*

Not in my PlanetSide. Wanking to K : D is bad enough, encouraging that kind of attitude doesn't do the game any favors.
