In addition to advanced V2 tech, the nazis experimented with cloaking technologies that could render german soldiers virtually invisible, but casualty rates from friendly fire skyrocketed, so the program was scrapped (except for some rogue units, which you encounter in SEV2, who continued to utilize the outlawed tech). --- GT - AcquittedArtist
I hate spawn triggers. Always have, especially in a campaign. I feel like if there is going to be an enemy patrol down the street, they need to be there when the mission starts. Not let me see an empty street through my binoculars, and then when I move six feet forward, an entire platoon just appears out of nowhere already firing on my position.
In a game where recon is so important, its pretty inexcusable to have such a crappy spawning system. Your binoculars are pretty much worthless. You can scan whatever you want, but the fact of the matter is that you arent going to see any of the enemies until youre in range for the computer to spawn-ambush you. Enemy snipers arent on rooftops or in windows until the enemy has been alerted. They just arent there.
Kill tally and overwatch get pretty nasty in some places. Some deaths I have, I can do nothing but shake my head and look at my tv screen knowing I just got effed over by poor design.
