    • Hello all, All guns suffer from barrel overheating. Mind you, you really have to work hard to significant overheat a rifle barrel. Semi-auto and then automatic weapons suffer the worst cases of barrel overheating. Submachine guns are no exception. Most if not all WWII Online SMGs fire from an open bolt. On average in-game LMG's do as well. The open bolt is where the bolt is held back by the firing shear at the rear of its stroke. The next round is still sitting in the magazine lips and has not yet been chambered. The advantage of this is it allows airflow through the barrel to help in cool it. Additionally the round is held out of the potentially hot chamber reducing the chance of a cook off. The disadvantage is that when you pull the trigger to fire, there is a significant weight shift as the bolt closes, collecting and chambering the round on it forward passage. The net result is a shift of aim. If a SMG desires first round accuracy they will generally fire from a closed bolt. The act of pulling the trigger releases the firing pin to strike the primer and fire the round. No weight shift. A closed bolt weapon is more likely to suffer from a cook off as the round is chambered. As an aside Open Bolt firing weapons are generally easier to manufacture than the Closed Bolt counterparts, as they have a fixed firing pin. The simplification is, there is no need to separate the extraction and loading cycle from the firing cycle required by Closed Bolt firing weapons. Cheers

    • walking like Arnold
    • 3 vs 15 right now...      and people still play axis and take towns,...   there is no hope ..
    • What do you mean "game enjoyment"? Playing 10 vs 5 on a map designed for many hundreds online at the same time? Maybe thousands? Or is game enjoyment for you playing with exactly the same weapons as the enemy? Then its a completely different game, and it wont bring people back anyway. Or maybe you are one of those who think the game would be perfect if only axis lost this weapon or allies lost that weapon? You maybe dont care at all if even more players left.
    • A lot has been discussed in the forums for the past years about that topic. As XOOM mentioned, the Bren Gun, FM24/29 have MG34 have been audited regarding their allowed firing positions.  I am curious: what final state would you have chosen? note that the « deployed » state is obvious but for some it might be the only answer.
    • /fallback=None command which lists all units with a None fallback destination
    • So in game enjoyment has nothing to do with new and returning players? Are you crazy? I find the cost just fine. 
    • We should be adult enough to have the conversation that LMG fix will negatively impact Axis Infantrymen more than Allied Infantrymen, because the MG34 is such a superb weapon and is the weapon of choice for Axis infantrymen, so the gameplay has evolved into a LMG-centric position. But I also think most rational players accept that the Rambo style needs to be addressed, across all nations and both sides. So isn't the solution to gather from experienced, rational Axis players, the area of contention for the Axis side and to address any perceived imbalance (if considered genuine) at the same time as rolling out any change to LMG? If the two corrections are released at the same time, CRS can genuinely claim to be trying to address important factors for both sides simultaneously
