^ This. Makes you wonder why they were all changed in the first place. Would it not have been smarter to make just a few 1st person servers and see how the people react? Seeing as they were all 3rd person before the change and no one was complaining on the forums or in-game for that fact (from what I saw) about there being the option to play 3rd person.


^ +1

Bought the game about 2 weeks ago and learn't to hack people up a little.. then discovered 3rd person by mistake, loved it as you can see the swings, misses and your head coming off etc and I find that view I have more fun in game....nek minnit, all my favourite games.on.net servers have locked out 3rd person bar the one FFA server. It saddens me deeply when core features are removed from a game because of a particular opinion on how the game should be played.

Fists are another kettle of fish as they are far more effective than any fists should be against a man in a steel suit.

bring back 3rd person

We already have 3rd person servers, all FFA servers and servers #24 and #25
As there is an issue with the in game servers browser sometimes not showing servers here is the alternative methods of joining:

"Open" command by the in game console, e.g open 59.167.241.22:7777
IP list to be used with the open command (its different to the one to be used with steam favorites)

Since first person lock seems to be the least popular, wouldn't it make more sense to have more 3rd person enabled servers? Frankly, FFA sucks and I'm not sure why you enable it specifically for that game mode.. unless it's how you prefer to play FFA? :P Better yet, just leave the servers so that people can play in whatever mode they prefer, problem solved.

^FFA is awesome

EDIT: its perfect for spamming left mouse AND having awesome/proper duels and group fights. Love fighting off multiple attackers and crashing other people's parties lol.

although I love FFA (though it gets boring after a while unless you have heaps of beer) but I completely agree with the rest of the post!

Was good to see 20+ people on the a SA 3rd person server last night!

I dislike 3rd person because it opens up exploits such as bending down all the time to insta-hit overheads with weapons like the Bardiche and bearded axe but still see where you're going, losing the visibility restriction of shields and making kiting/dancing too powerful because you can see around you better even when running away from people.

However with customisation now in the game it is a pity you can't look at yourself. I wish there was a way to have it only available for a few minutes of the match or something.

You know what would be cool? If you could play 1st person using Track IR, that would be cool.
