We have some ideas in the works and would like community feedback!
We have decided to try and recreate factions and make things a bit more interesting!
We are going to change the Independent to the UN/NATO and make them the Northern Army, BUT WAIT! Does that mean Terrorists are gone? Not at all! Civilians will now be able to be Terrorists!
Then what does that mean for the UN? What is their purpose? Well, they are the ones that get to fight the OpFor in Wartime! As well as they are the ones to now man the borders to allow proper entry to either side! They are also able to fight Terrorists and Terrorists can bomb the borders! Terrorists will be able to also bomb checkpoints!
So, the cops cant do war? Well, good thing you asked! The answer is no. HOWEVER, they are now 100% just cops! So they do just what cops do! Arrest people, just like what ISNT happening from them! Give tickets! Take care of bank robberies! Take out gang areas! Stake out drug locations! Just like a cop is supposed to do!
Somewhere along the lines, cops have become war maniacs and just gun fighters. That is not their purpose. They are to uphold the law and enforce the law. That is what this patch is about. Making Cops be cops and adding a war faction to fight for the freedom of the north!
So, quick recap to TL;DR- UN/NATO are Indy, they do war. BluFor are straight cop only, Civs can be terrorists and OpFor stay the same.
Now, time for a poll! Keep in mind that this patch does not take away from the game, it just creates more atmosphere and fun!
