I feel that the machine guns in this game are not as good as they could be. I think that if fixed MG's were added to the game it would make the game a lot better. Here are my ideas for the fixed MG's
-Two MG's per line on the larger maps one MG per line on the smaller maps. For the Allies it would ba a hotchkiss, St. Étienne or maybe a Vickers gun since canadians are being added.
-You would have one box of ammunition per defence and the box would contain whatever would be the historical amount.
-Maybe the MG's would be disabled on attack so people wouldn't stay back and camp. People would use the Mobile MG's to attack
-Another problem I have is that the german MG is basicly a lazer gun that sounds like a pea shooter.
The counter arguments that I have heard are they they would be OP because the would have to be placed in a spot where you can see where the enemy would be coming from. I do not think they would be OP since people are not screaming about the german MG being OP because the fixed MG's would basicly be the German MG execpt you would not be mobile and you wouldn't be able to reload.
The other argument is that they would be unused because of the reasons stated above. People zig zaging across nomans land can be tricky to shott with a bolt action rifle so I know I would use the fixed MG if I had the chance. Also it would make an NCO able to kill people at a longer range. Even though though the mortar is pretty good for that if you know what you are doing.
