new idea?

#1Fox_Rox23Posted 4/11/2010 4:46:47 PM
i don't know if this has been thrown out here yet but i would like the game to not have a lock on feature, or at least a game mode where you couldn't do this. that way more skilled players would stand out. anyone agree

If anything, once you reach a certain rank, it is nolonger active (It will either A. Have people who depend on it reset their ranks or B. Get the player to adapt to play without it). That and the ability to take it off completely in options, that way you have an extra slot to put something else in it's place.

You have to remember, games are supposed to be fun, and they sell more if they are fun to a broader audience.

Actually, this idea is as old as the first game.
HVSTony has said that, if lock on remains in the game, he supports putting in a mode without it, but that's about all we got.
Personally, my hopes are way high because of that.

IDK about that though.

A mode w/o it would be OK, but Lock on will affect different game play types differently.
Instead of Noobs getting screwed over, it could easily be the Close Combat types.

Even if it doesn't lock on, it should still lock the view like it does if you press it where there is nobody to lock on.

I rather old idea but still decent.
Like the above poster I would still want a screen lock feature or something along those lines

Yeah, screen lock is helpful. That'd make sense to replace lock on with that.
But then, we have sprinting, which will take up a button...

If holding reload can swap out guns while you are standing near a gun...
then it makes sense that holding it could put your gun away when you're not.

Sprinting could just be running w/o your gun. :p

Its a good way to keep people from just sprinting ALL the time.
it controls its use.
it makes sense.
and it doesn't take up another button.

What if lock on became a perk or a attribute?
