After a while, if you’re paying enough attention, you start to get a sort of precognition of who’s gonna call “invis ei”. I spot this one guy mowing down EI with his LMG and I think… Yeah. He’s gonna.
I watch him for a while, and he’s doing pretty good. I decide maybe I’ll try for some “before and after” shots. This is my approximation of what he’s seeing – zoom level is probably not quite correct but the buzzard is clunky. Left image is with icons on, right image is with icons off, so you can see what he might be looking at, even tho, well, you probably can’t see it (right image).
He finally stops his lawn mowing activities, when people stop resupplying him, and starts looking for stuff to shoot at, watching over his shoulder for several minutes I get a sense of the tension he’s building up, he keeps snapping to binos and scanning and then snapping to his LMG…
Oh, but I can see it coming… With anonymous scanning frantically for the EI at the right end of the berm, along comes invisible…
… and sure enough, “cheater in kaltmout!”
So I took a moment out to try and console anonymous.
why feh **** u gotta lie to me? i was looking right where the ei was at and no way he cud have seen me unless he was cheating.
Well, I decided to bow to his superior wisdom. There’s no way he could have been shot by any other player than the one he was looking at, could he?
Remember: The players to the sides and behind you are part of your vis limit too; because you can turn around at any point, the vis limit is circular – you don’t want to die to the tank 50ft behind you because of 300 players standing a half a mile infront of you ;)
Addendum: For those not familiar with the tone of writing, the EI is not invisible, hard to see, that’s why I put a little black border around him :)
