    Bump. Since this thread is no longer a "hot topic", but it should be.

    What's up with the "Let's remove everything until shit becomes balanced"? Do it long enough and there won't be any game left.

    so its decided. remove it ...



    reason? it currently is 13:8 yes. as soon as no reaches 12 its 25 votes with a simple majority for yes. GG

    no but seriously, the voteing system you use is flawed, you at least need to set an end date. also itd be interesting if its something which should be decided by simple majority (1 vote more decides) or if it requires a qualified majority like for example an absolute majority of 2/3rds.

    even tho i voted yes, id say it needs an qualified majority. a single vote more would be too controversal to work out. idk if it needs be 2/3rds but thats at least a solid backing and a good ground for arguments.

    but critics aside i also want to say i like the way you solve this and that you didnt side with anything (even tho this might really only be attributed to you having no opinon) and i hope whatever the outcome will be will also find acceptance.

    If anything just rework the sniper rifle for BE at least, make it another type of rifle for Rifleman... Maybe comparable to the NFHR in accuracy?

    i thought the AR with the small mag would be the nfhr counterpart? i used it over distance and it worked quite well.

    I didn't say I'd close the polling as soon as we hit 25. I am giving this polling at least a week or two.
    Even though we removed sniper rifle before, this is still kinda a major change.

    If you feel the existence of the weapon hurts the gameplay fundamentally, vote yes.
    If you support a rework and/or you don't think this weapon is bad for Empires, vote no.

    Also, leave a message (PM/reply) if you want to change your vote.

    Removing it? No thanks, it should be just moved to riflemen.

    From 13-4 to 13-11 in a day and a half. Someone is playing games here.

    Or people are voting no because they want it moved to rifleman, which is what really should happen here. Why Tricksters change was undone is beyond me. I disagreed at first but it really did make the game better. Like your wall change Security, I initially disagreed because I love trenches but it actually has improved Empires quite a bit.

    I kinda gave the link of this thread to those "yes" first, so no worry, it's all fair and square atm.

    And yeah, "no" contains rework/move to rifleman..etc.

    No contains move to rifleman? I guess I'm technically "no" then, and many have voted no, but how do you know what the no camp has voted? I'm sure 4-5 of them actually want it to stay on scout, but if the no vote wins then will you actually move to rifleman or leave it on scout?

    That's another thing to discuss.

    If the result is close we'll most likely stick with "no".

    Worrying that you didn't answer the question; if the result is no, will things stay the way they are?

    My vote would be removing entirely rather than leaving it on scout.

    Yes means you want this weapon to just disappear, you just don't want to see sniper in this game.

    No means you like sniper as it is/you want us to rework it/you want us to move it to rifleman...etc, in short, you don't think it's bad to have sniper in this game.

    the question is "remove the sniper rifle?". moving is not removing, so the answer is "no".
    the rest is quite clear from the OP.

    This thread reminds me of the referendum of the 23th in UK. It's accurate.

    thing is, all the good players voted yes and all the bad players voted no (trickster being the worst of them all)

    It can be made useful if only the horrible mechanic around it can be changed
