    Veiw Point

    So as I understand it the game will be locked in first person veiw, will there/can there be some way for a third person veiw. My reasoning behind it would be to help formations keep cohesion while offering a betterfied of vision. If you look at the kick starter video you see the men suddenly form into column and then a line, I know some of those where devs but a few must have been ai and being a member if my high school marching band, I know that to keep in formation you would need to use your peripheral vision. Since this is a game I don't see how players could do that kind of formations on the go, much less form a perfect line like that.

    Mainly I say this due to the many NW, NAS regs I have been in, and in my expirences it just isn't practical to be first person when its time to be in formations, on the go and to an extent in a fight. Now when we do get to the point that regiments start forming, I don't know about any one else but I like to take/be part of in game regimental photos and in the past to either take them or be in and take you need to be either in spec or 3rd person.

    Now for the folks who will scream realism, I know. However I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks this, and from a new player stand point it would be beneficial for the new people to see the regiments/sqauds/armies in formation so that they can learn, if they can't see I then they won't do it, and being a fps you will still have those not in regs/armies ect who will go the call of duty mentality, so to keep an eye for rambos it would be a good idea for 3td person veiw to keep an eye out.

    I'm sure this may have been discussed but I want to get feedback. Thanks for reading.

    Probably said million times now. This will only be 1st person. Might change for cavalry but highly doubt.

    And game mechanics will make formations easier (I hope)

    What they can implement is some sort of free cam so you can look around your surroundings even for spot enemies at distance while running at one direction.

    Let me ask a simple question, in the course of your day to day life do you use a 3rd person viewpoint? Point being you can't use one in real life and this effort is to restrict to as near real life as possible.

    In real life if you needed to dress a line you have to look to your right and left I don't see what's so hard about doing that in this environment.

    Track ball has been suggested to help with the first person view. Free cameras also need limiting as they could be employed as a cheat.

    That's a terrible column. They're all out of step.

    "would be nice" ... not needed. Takes away from the realism that the developers are trying to bring into this.

    I don't see why we cant have both, people who own servers can decide whether to have 1st and 3rd, or just 1st person view. This way people who want the realism experience can be happy and the more casual people can be happy. I agree though forming lines in 3rd person is easier i also prefer doing melee combat in any game in 3rd person.
