The dot modifier on weapons was never any good for the actual damage, its there to stop shield regeneration.. and i find that quite usefull actually, depends a bit against what class tho, its most effective against tac's actually.

Depends on the opponents, i find offensive play as engineer to work well most of the time.. not as good as it used to be but it still does work to some degree.

I prefer action packet games with minimal camping, arena rocks (no pve objectives to sidetrack you from what pvp is really about).

Did you really expect that having a new gameplay would change who wins?

Adapting is the strong point of any true pvper.. regardless how much they nerf the gameplay or screw the class balance, the true pvp'ers will just adapt to it and play with classes & weapons that most effective for the job at hand.

If anything, the changes made it actually worse for newbies on ground tbh.

That way it encourages you to take cover more often.
Bad idea it means we will just all sit behind corners waiting for the others to make the move... if theres one thing i totally hate then its exactly that sort of gameplay.. its boring.

I wouldnt want games to emulate the real world either.. one of the main reasons to play games is actually evading the real world and having fun... if we all sit behind corners because charging in makes us lose accuracy and thus lose, the game just becomes a stalemate between good players.

But it worked well before.. regular ground pvp'ers had fun in pvp and theres enough videos around from people doing stf's in 30-45 minutes (before the change), elite explorations on ground under the old systems were doable in like 8-10 minutes for me too.
