Let’s get down to business, straight to the point. We need change for SWAT 4 and we’re all aware of it.
Things are becoming too repetitive and simply boring, people are also way more inactive than usual.
Chlarmi and I took the initiative to try out “new” tactics with a few players who were online at the time.
The reason why I put quotes on ‘new’ is because some of you might already be familiar with these tactics, aka High Risk Entry.
(These were used by the VOWS swat 4 clan back in the day).
There are video’s about the tactics on youtube. Keep in mind that they’re more complicated than the current ones.
Nothing against the current tactics but they’re simply too repetitive, boring and slow. These tactics would bring new life to the game,
they simply make much more sense. These tactics also get rid of the problem of deciding who will lead.
These are also way more based on teamwork, giving any person in #4 and up a job to do, unlike now. The formation is constantly being
swapped around, giving every person an important role in the entries. Bigger teams are also a possibility now, that’s why the teamwork is very important.
Chlarmi (, Fawkes, Dertoh, Bandit) and I did a training session regarding these High Risk Entries, the play style was very enjoyable.
Here follows the problem though, in order to make these tactics more realistic and way more effective, is to start using the Sherrif’s Special Forces Mod (SSF Mod 3.2).
I’m honestly fully behind this overhaul, the mod will offer the change we need in combination with these tactics.
The tactics will be introduced by us two, we’ll probably be moving away from the old ones. As we’re new at them ourselves,
we might still make mistakes and have to adapt during the process. Let’s call it a testing phase and let’s see how well it works out.
Potential guide(s) coming up in the near future, these tactics can also be used in the vanilla game but they’ll be a little more tricky
because of the lack of equipment and simply how the vanilla game works. We do really want to give it a try nonetheless.
The way this would work (for now, we’ll see in the future), is that there would be a LAN server for people to join.
Volunteering to host these kind of servers would be awesome, any information regarding this matter would go towards Chlarmi.
We’ll be using Hamachi for the hosting of the servers, link will be at the bottom of the post.
Any feedback would be much appreciated, we’re both excited to bring new life to the game!
