Historical fact that if a soldier died with an Mkb, his partner would snatch it up, sure. Having another one appear on the battlefield less than 10 seconds later? No. No no no. The entire Axis team is kitted out with the damn things after the first two waves.

And I don't know what game's you've been playing. The killboards in my games are -jammed- with the Mkb. The odd kill here and there, but it's not uncommon to see:

Pop up all at once. All it takes is one guy who's a decent shot with the Mkb and a group of Ruskies trying to work as a team.

You've been trouncing the MKB defenders (in it's current quantity/form) throughout this whole discussion Josef. The majority seem to be just be character assassinators.

The MKB totally FUBARs the feel and enjoyment of the game for me. I don't want to feel like a cheapskate if I play on the Axis, but I do. I've not played the game much at all since the other day when the gun was patched in, and I'm having my first genuine case of nerd rage against TWI over it.

Seconded. Tues & Weds I spent all evening playing and having a great time, now when I play I repeatedly see

I just don't get it. It goes against what we were told, it's historically a complete balls up and it makes most of the other German armoury redundant. Every time I hear or see one on the battlefield it just irritates me.

In smaller numbers, or if the people using it actually earned the right to use it then fine...but otherwise >.<

Right now I believe they are more worried about patching bugs and performance issues for those suffering from them.

As much as I don't care for these weapons, it is more of a gameplay issue and even I don't think its a higher priority than actual fixes.

Just saying...

They should rename the game into something like
"What if ... Stalingrad"
or
" Red Orchestra Ost Front 1943-1945 "
And leave "heroes" out of the name for sure.

I wondered why they even bothered modelling a MP40, as it has completely fallen out of the game. After the introduction of mkb42, I see 5+ mkbs for every MP40, and that is certainly not how it should be in a game set in 1942-43...

I hope it becomes possible for servers to remove/reduce certain weapons from the game. I'm just waiting for a server with at most 2 mkb/avt per side (on a 64 player server, at most 1 for anything below 40. 0 would also be fine (maybe better?)) and decent players to pop up somewhere in northern Europe. Anytime now...

what irks me the most with the mkb (H) or what ever you want to call it, is the sheer ease of use, you can play like cod and still get a good amount of kills with it, you dont even have to ads the weapon... and dont get me started on the penetration of that gun!

they should have called the axis the MKB squad! :p

It may "rock," but it NEVER rocked Stalingrad in the real world. Now, it OWNS Stalingrad.

COD'ism 1, Realism 0

There was no americans in stalingrad either lets take them out and place some European servers instead, hard to find a decent TWI Server that you can level in as European


All i mean this is a game either you go full realism with jamming included or you live with whats at hand and demand ;)

Plus the MKB has become a non-rare weapon now.
Is this really what TWI wants with the RO franchise?

Look what thread I found lie around ignored by the devs... ;)
*bump*
In the other MKB thread Ramm reacted, but he AVOIDED the MKB issue. He was blabbing around about bandaging and other stuff, but nowhere addressing the main subject and issue of that thread.

TWI is disappointing me and other people who share my feelings and vice versa.

oops! Sorry, it was Sas ofc :eek:
Ramm has to respond sooner or later. I sincerely hope ;)


If he does, it'll likely be with another surely, "take a big breath, relax" condescending post telling you to be good little boys and girls while Daddy goes to work. I was a big TWI fan before this game. But with selling us one type of game and giving us another, intentionally selling us an unfinished game and then the complete lack respect or recognition to paying customers who didn't get what they paid for, I'm done with Tripwire and won't be giving them another cent of my hard-earned money -- EVER.

In less than 1 hour today, attempting to play on 3 Mkb-ridden servers, I lost the sound on the first requiring a restart, then CTD'd in the first game on each of two successive servers. This game is unstable and unplayable, let alone unbalanced and unrealistic.

I paid for this clusterflook of a game, so I'll be back to play it assuming it's ever finished sometime next year.
