We can have private matches now so what about having a night, or even just a couple of hours on our server playing conquest with no guns or exposives allowed.
The object of the game is to control the points but you cant shoot people or throw grenades at them.
You CAN knife them, repair tool them or defrib them to death. You can run over them in your jeep or tank which to counter people just zooming around in vehicles we would probably have to allow the use of C4 / Mines on vehicles.
We could use the smaller maps such as Metro , Seine crossing and Noshar canals.
Anyone that did start shooting could be kicked, but as its SNRs only that wouldn't hapen would it ;)
Would this work? would it be a bit of a change , would it be as much fun as similar games that we have played on COD and Uncharted.

I remember doing a knife only fight over at FRAG on Ghost Recon ages ago. Very good fun, and brought a whole new strategy to the game!!

I think the only problem we've got is we cant make the game private can we?

Oh and I would disallow C4 & mines too. You can run someone over and thats it. :evil:

Yes we can, we simply add a password to the server. :D

I would like a stab fest, rather than a race around in vehicles capturing flags, so thats why I was thinking about allowing mines. Perhaps stick it on hardcore so that you couldn't be spotted. Imagine the dogtags that you would collect.

A conquest map would be too big surely, What If we only had 10 people In, it would take an age to run from the spawn to the last map to get knifed and then do It all over again, Could be a bit boring.

If we're gonna close the server off from the public for a few hours or a night why not do a few different ones?

A round of knives only (stick this on a smaller map such as Op Metro)

A round of pistols only

A round of Explosives only!!

I like the idea of sticking it on hardcore too.

It'd have to be well co-ordinated though.

What's the difference between normal and Hardcore?

Spotting not activated and easier to kill / die.

To be a little more specific you lose HUD features in Hardcore, i'm not sure on the extent of what you lose but you don't get a mini map and you don't get to see rounds left in your gun. Technically spotting does actually work but you have to pause the game to see it, so kinda pointless. Full health is decreased and you don't auto-regenerate health, you need to have a medic drop a media kit.

I think that's everything. But basically it should mean knife fights are over quicker and sneaking up on people should be easier.

Sounds like fun, maybe make it unranked as it's only for a giggle. Mixed modes and TDM or SQDM.

Don't think you can make it unranked, Worried about your KDR? ;)

If you make a server private it's unranked.

You can't play private games and get battle reports or stats for them.
