    The class restriction should apply to every class in game not just recon if this is the case.

    I said if that was the case. I dont like class restrtiction either but if dice wants to restrict classes then it has to done to every class. Not just recon.

    Yet in spite of that only a minority of them understand that their main function is spotting.
    ...
    I want Q spotting back...

    No it doesn't because the premise of restricting recon is that people are horrible at it and can be more effective in classes in which it is easier to get kills.

    Said it for a long time, they need to give snipers their own game mode and maps.

    People love to snipe, you can't get rid of them, dice won't remove such a large portion of gamers, the best thing to be done is give them the environment that they will enjoy the most so they will play that instead of the other game modes(leaving the actual decent recons that play conquest like it's meant to be played).

    In farcry with its map editor people started making sniper only maps, basically the 2 teams were separated by a ravine they couldn't cross which resulted in more careful gameplay reminiscent of a lot of sniper duels you see in movies.
    I've even suggested something that may be similar but more BF in tone in this thread from bf1:

    Main problem is recon is worse at PTFO then any other class in game. That is why people who use it rather stay far away because its the only way their primary guns are viable. The class is weak not the players.

    Also forget the recon only restriction. It will never happen. The best case is all classes gets a restriction.

    I hate snipers too because they add unnecasary rush to the game... i dont really know what snipers you guys are talking about? Snipers are often on certain maps the number 1 with score and K/D... i cant stand still and think about the situation without a sniper giving me a headshot, there is no place i can hide... no open space i can traverse without beeing picked up or forced into cover by a sniper... no SAA i can use without beeing shot or again forced into cover... snipers are a pest out of control... mercury is one of those maps a sniper limit would do wonder to fun... and now we have all those semi-auto rifle assault sniper too... the sizes of the maps and the map design are often too small and too bad to support this to end in fun...

    DICE could have added some spice to the game with the AT rifles but they failed... this At rifles could have been anti SAA , SAT and MG tools while improving the defense for these against normal sniper rifles... they should add a skill which masks the direction a shot is fired from too making them better to fight tanks...

    To be honest, the playerbase is bad in general

    I don't complain about Snipers anymore because DICE takes that as make all maps smaller.

    I love it on Panzerstorm when I see six people in tanks, all of them forgetting they are in tanks, and sniping.

    To be fair though regarding an abundance of scouts at any one time,  Scouts mostly have weapons that are ideal at range whilst other classes have more close combat weapons.

    Last night I was playing mainly as a scout using the model 8(??) In order to level it up from level 0.

    Imo the scout class needs an smg or something auto ( not semi auto ) in order to compete better in a close quarters environment.

    It's just the way the classes are done,  assault and medics and support are all front lines infantry play,  Whereas scouts have the large 12x scopes to allow sniping for area denial ( if they are on point and they have good aim ) 

    Its difficult for a scout and the weapons the class has to compete with the type 2a for example,  that thing just shreds.

    I think the scopes are 6x max.

    I'm certain I've seen 12x,  on rifles like the krag / Lee Enfield etc,  I'll have to double check

    :edit:
    nope you were right,  Max of 6x.

    Playerbase is worse with recon because recon is weaker then rest. Suprised?
