Not surprising is it ?
I read very post, I thought about it all and concluded, the old school was for me & I will explain.
The cover system takes you view to 3rd Person so you get the view angle to peek in effect, old school is true to life, like in OGR you took your chance or worked the angles with your team mates. The old style is harder, we like harder when it is appropriate but the cover system reflects in games like ArmA, OFP and a bunch of others, it has it's place and in my judgment that is in large scale combat.
GroundBranch to my knowledge in not large scale combat, therefore, it should be offers as an option or not at all. I'm not a fuddy duddy, I like the spirit of team, anything that helps detract from you calling to your team for intel from another angle is arcade for me.
Well I'm surprised how the score stands when I voted
Good luck BF. thanks for asking too, now if it only gets implemented....
