telling between friend and foe should not BE THIS DIFFICULT!
why is it so hard to tell people apart in this game? the amount of times i died becase i hesitated to shoot from fear of killing teammates is imessurable.
in long range - where most fire fights will happen - the colors just fade and blend into this universal ickish brown color. the helmets lose most of their details so they all look like the round helm your team might be wearing.
in stalingrad it's even worse because the maps there are littered with dark corners and unlit buildings
sure you can still tell by their running animation (nazi/japan soldiers carry their weapon in one hand while running) and by their general location but when the fight becomes frantic or the enemy comes from an unexpected place, it's really really frustrating to die just because he looked like an ally.
and don't tell me that's realistc because it far from it, nazis have dark gray uniforms, russians have light brown, their helmets differ both in shape and color, same applies to the pasific front.
just for the record, in CoD: World at War, which had a similar setting, i never have problems telling between allies and enemies even at very long, and that game is 6 bloody years old.
is there a fix for this? tripwire planning to release a patch anytime soon?
