wouldnt it be better instead of a boring black screen, just a camera staring at the sky or something? =P

No cause you still can see or hear enemy next to you and report them @ mumble, teamspeak or ventrillo.

Black screen is must be for clangaming like leagues roladder, ESL, clanbase and other cups/tournaments.

if the camera only shows the sky you don't know where that camera is in the map, because you can't see any references. it could just be a floating point 100 meters above the ground

Maybe, however blackscreen is must be for clangaming so there is no option to give any information to teammates when you are dead. I even think games should mute surrounding sounds...

Recon plane cam? Start new suggestion thread! :D

Fixating a player on first person spectate of his own team would work fine from my pov as well as then you cannot see anything else than a teammate could see.

Especially with countdown a black screen might end up being a bit too boring in some cases. Of course its for different communities to decide :p.

I don't think Tripwire is that desperate for money.

And I don't know if you guys said this but I"m sure the whole black screen thing will be an OPTION that is a choice for servers. I'm not a hardcore competitive gamer, and I really like being able to spectate after I die, especially at the end of the round with 0 tickets left.

Yeah it's a competition thing, most people feel that for a real honest competitive game, people must not be able to ghost around maps and report on the enemy's movements and locations (even if both sides could do it, they feel it ruins the spirit of the competition, interferes with the raw skill of playing), so it's pretty much a requirement from this part of the community.

So if you join a competitive RO2-Ladder, expect to see it enabled, but on normal servers, it will allmost certainly be turned off for the vast majority of servers.

Nothing about PPD40 and MP41?

I think PPD40 will be in, allthough it faded away fast from the inventories of the first line combat troops when PPSh-41s started to flood in. But MP41 was a weapon mostly used by police formations and some SS detachments. It did not see action worth mentioning in the ranks of Wehrmacht.

apparently the mp41 was fairly common in stalingrad.
Also mp41 was my fave smg in RO always so for that reason id like it to make a comeback.
