Hello,  I was just wondering if there is a chance to make the game where boarder riders can't shoot while moving along in the boarder area. I don't thank its fair that if you ride the boarder you can move at an off pace, stay angled and shoot.

There is enough of a penalty just that they get stuck.  Caught a Khabob that way the other day.

I think if WG would make people who run the border have their power reduced by half, that would fix it.  I mean, they would be easy targets to hit if they could only go half speed, so that would pretty well take care of it.

 

Hey, wait a minute...

They are already easy enough to hit on the border due to the huge engine penalty they take. This really isnt a problem any more.

If you ride the boarder use the speed penalty to slow down causing aim to be off and instead of coming off turn shoot and turn back in so you have your ship angled that's my problem.  All I am saying is make it where you can't use the boarder for anything but to turn around.

It's not half, it's quarter. You pretty much become a stationary target that's incredibly hard to miss.

I would like to see Subs on the other side of the border sending torps at them

If you can't hit someone on the border, you deserve your own fate.

Just for what its worth, boarder is someone who rents a room.

 

I think the engine penalty for hitting the border is sufficient

It can also be someone who boards a ship.  So there is a naval usage.  Just not the one that the OP is using.

Oh dear.  But at least make it WW2 era U-boats or USN subs.  :Smile_hiding:  (Suddenly, this smilie takes on a whole new meaning.)

Does anybody else think the ship falling off the map wouldn't be funny?

I didn't realise there was a SSN-571 Easter egg, is this on Island of ice?  I'm assuming this is the Nautilus, and an Operation Sunrise reference.

You don't think a couple of MK 48 ADCAPS would be exactly fair? :cap_tea:
