Postby Klorn on Sun Jul 06, 2008 5:33 pm

Helloes DOD:S community!
I'm a regular TF2 player, and CS:S on occasions.
I just tried DOD:S in the free weekend, and I just got hooked.
So this is mainly to say hello!
But I also have one very noobish question... What is the Support class useful for? I mean, the gun has very high recoil, and the other thing he has is a grenade, so why not just go Assault?... Does he have a drop ammo function I'm missing or something like that?
Many thanks,
Klorn.

the support is a better overall gun, it can do anything the assault weapons do, but is more powerful, accurate and longer range to it.

If you see them used in a match situation its apparent how powerful they are.

If you can control the recoil (which is easy) then you have a huge advantage of medium range battles.

Tbh what Flawless said sums it up.

Thanks for the responses, it's pretty much clearer now, see you in-game :D
Just to note, I'm amazed the games so cheap, the graphics and gameplay is much better than most of the online shooters I've played, cheers.

Hello welcome to the dods side :D support is just the best once you master the recoil.
I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandad
not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.

No, recoil is the same for all weapons, mostly it got changed slightly for a few weapon and one of the rifle's had its recoil reduced for balancing issues.

Welcome to DoD! :D

Support fits in every situations, but u need little bit practice with it's recoil. Its accurate and powerful, destructive weapon. U say why not go to assault? Because assault is not so accurate and powerful (but assault has bigger rate of fire), but in my opinion, assault is better than support in cqb. And every class can drop ammo, by pressin H (default button). I like more assault, i just love to rush with it and just spray and pray :D

The Support is a very good gun...but also...as the it says...Its support, you have to assist the players, like a mg, to set-up at good places, or sniper, so the sniper can do his job, support :)
Most people use support for medium/short attack...

And...Welcome to UKCS!

assault is shit. its the "welcome-to-this-game-lets-start-off-with-something-very-easy"-gun.

when standing still, every weapon will hit pretty much where you aim, although accuracy decreases when range increases. this is not the case with assault. you will in fact hit everywhere except where you aim. there is a chance you could hit your enemy if you stand inside him. although the update has made the cone of fire a bit smaller, its still the most random gun in the game. the only gun more shit than assault has got to be that axis rocket sidearm. rocket in general is also shit. and mg.

oh, and:

Support works pretty well nailing those mg's and snipers at a distance too. :)

Hi Klorn. :)

I wish only to add that the support is the most complete class in the game, because it allows intermediate camps on the lines of fire or of short-range or long for, defending and attacking at the same time, as with the use of grenades, allow to go conquering ground to ground, always with the coverage of rifles.

It can also be used as assault, to capture the last lines of the enemy, it is also extremely useful in defense when there aren't possible exits in our latest lines, so many rifleman opt for this class in these times of tightening.

A support is a commander, often occurs not by him.

If the recoil is high must be understood in light of the war where crouching down and lying would be easier to move to the next trench, so some models have bipod, do not be surprised if is difficult for you to go through a support camped during the game. :)

Was the category that gave me more pleasure in playing alongside the allies garand, the use of grenade requires more intelengence than skill, and this captivate me, therefore could continue to be a blind.
If I had a smoke grenade too, it would also be perfect, so all classes are important.

oh btw...when you play a lot, you will get a hang of the assault...but you have to put time it to train. I did, it works good for me, chasing the flags with assault is a challenge, hehe a Good One :)
Thats all I wanna say!
Have with gaming and we meet in the game!

Dont let Primals elitist bashing of assault fool you :D , after the update it's much more accurate, and actually not a bad weapon if you practise a bit. Just play a while with all the different classes and you'll soon find out which class best suits your style of playing.
