    Hi,

    Thanks for asking first!

    PR involves a large degree of information hiding from the enemy team and is therefore very susceptible to stream sniping, so we should probably start by discussing the technical measures you have or can take to minimise the risk of that being possible:
    • What kind of transmission delay do/can you handle?
    • Do you have any other technical measures that you could take (for example, detecting and not transmitting the minimap, detecting and not transmitting the respawn location when you spawn)?
    • Do you have other people whom you play with who can use tactics intended to hide information from stream-snipers?
    • Do you have any other methods to hide this information?

    • What kind of transmission delay do/can you handle? : I don't mind running a 10 minute delay
    • Do you have any other technical measures that you could take (for example, detecting and not transmitting the minimap, detecting and not transmitting the respawn location when you spawn)? : Yes I can hide my Minimap, not sure how I can hide the big map when using Caps lock. I think the best thing to do is to zoom in completely when opening the map maybe?
    • Do you have other people whom you play with who can use tactics intended to hide information from stream-snipers? : Not sure about this one
    • Do you have any other methods to hide this information?

    Ok I found a way so when I open up my map with caps lock or when i spawn. An image pops up over the map to cover it

    For that I was thinking of things like avoiding friendly FOs/strongpoints, keeping the squad moving as much as possible, and not saying the grid coordinates of friendly positions. There may be other things that can be done, too.
