Are they going to change the non-bipod accuracy of the LMGs? Are they going to add barrel overheating like real LMGs so you can't fire that entire 100-200 round belt in one go? Are they going to remove the scope option? They're already overpowered as is.

Seriously, LMGs are just hilariously overpowered in BC2. The biggest reason isn't the absurdly high accuracy (scope on a machine gun haha WTF) or super high damage (magnum ammo) it's the fact that if you single shot instead of laying on the trigger you can keep going in a frantic running-around firefight while any non LMG dudes are out of ammo.

I've gone on 5+ kill streaks for this very reason. All assault has is stupid grenade launcher spam so it's no wonder everyone goes for the class with the fully automatic sniper rifles that can also heal and rez and get a billion points for doing so.

The publisher is German but the developers are Russian actually.

With these kinds of possible sales numbers I don't understand why the big publishers don't adopt the age old music/film industry practice of having 'sublabels' that put out stuff that is more experimental and lower budget. Hell they could even craft an experimental mechanic into a small game, sell it digital only (Steam, etc.) and if it's successful roll it up into whatever multi zillion dollar 5-years-in-development title they currently have going at a "AAA" developer. Lessen the risk of a huge title bombing (since some of it has already been released via smaller games) and maybe even keep staff on instead of hiring and firing during every development cycle.

Yeah sure not everything is going to be successful, but if the budget is $200,000 and 3 months there's a lot less at stake than when it's $20 million and 4 years or whatever.
