    I was thinking of making a test event for changes for the commander.

    Changes:
    • Every 3 minutes, they get a 3 shell barrage from a single artillery gun. So reload time is about 8 seconds between each shell. That would be like 30 rounds every 30 minutes.
    • Remove UAV completely.
    • Remove the Laze function from all Squad leaders/Spotters.
    • Only allow laze from commander map, right-click, mark a target.
    • Remove Mortars.
    Is that too much artillery, or just right?

    Could be combined with a vehicle warfare layout (the original idea, not the one the devs did). Basically, put enough vehicles on the map for everyone to use, drop the vehicle spawn times, and bump the tickets. Using artillery with that would strongly discourage camping, but without being massively overpowered.

    Are you refering to "Laze on target" mark on map?, or completely remove the rangefinder laser?

    I'm just refering to the Rangefinder Lazer. The Laze on target mark on map would remain.

    They sounds like a reasonable changes, it would make commanders more of an active asset than support and logistics

    Already works like that, isn't?

    Everything above i assumed would need to be done server-side.
