For the best game mode to be chosen for competitive play, we must consider both the skills required for each game mode and the scope for showing these skills off. As a thought experiment take the following beautifully drawn scenario. The option is now there, at least. Haven't made up my mind yet, although I still have more fun with third person at the moment. This all seems to be assuming asymmetric play that only one of the players is in 3rd person. There should be some disadvantage to balance that out. However, you still need to loot, and the circle will still force you to move.
So what would the third person point of view provide you with? No more hiding behind a tree and spraying around the corner, killing unsuspecting players. The third-person perspective also offers passengers an easier way to determine where shots are coming from and return fire. In third person, a guy can stay completely hidden behind a rock, watch which side of the tree you poke out of, pre-aim and then instantly peek that side and shoot you, all without exposing himself up until the point that he's shooting at you. It would be a great shame to lose even part of that. The players that were stationary in houses and behind rocks would still be there but they would have vision over a massively increased part of the game zone. I don't know what person you are, no desrespect , but your thoughts all gone wrong. You will not notice enemies coming in from your blind spots as well.
Better players will have more freedom of movement and can engineer more situations in their favour. You, too, have to expose yourself for long enough to aim and fire, and if your opponent reacts quicker than you then you have to go back to safety — you cannot watch to see what they do and make a plan like you can in third-person mode. Many of the replies to the tweet reflected the idea that first person is more fun to play, but third person is better to watch. Though it's strong to say the first person toggle is a shoe horned feature it kind of feels that way. First-Person View Mode First person point of view allows you to immerse with your character as you go along and play a battle royale for survival against the other ninety-nine players equipped with the same hunger for supremacy as you.
Oh and i nearly forgot. Which is why sometimes I play third person so it's a nice open match. Players from both sides will chime in, and it's tough to determine who is ultimately correct. Since my regular group and I started playing in first person, we haven't played a single third person match at all. Although, if you're looking for a real fight, I'll see you on the first-person servers. What bothers me though is that one has to be chosen, and both can't play competitively together. I'm sure that with these kind of constructive and conversational threads we will all find a middle ground.
I just think the differences are way overblown, though not non-existent. This happening is unavoidable and why I state that any singular game cannot provide a true representation of skill. Take the top games of the last few years. A 1:1 scale doesn't always translate in a game setting. Im really keen to play it. But if it makes you feel better that the guy who just sniped you out of one of thirty different windows definitely poked his head out for however many extra seconds it took to aim, then more power to you.
My heart has never beat faster in any other game, especially in a top ten situation. Though you can toggle between third and first-person views in regular matches, the dedicated mode means you will only see in first-person. When playing in Third Person players can manipulate the camera to see over ledges or around corners that they might not otherwise be able to see — in First Person those areas would be blind spots unless the player actively moved their line of sight to acquire that data. If you like hiding behind trees, then that's your right. The points discussed above pretty much sum up my opinions. With all cameras locked to first-person perspectives, every piece of information becomes more valuable, and spotting becomes more of a skill. Also, the balance of the game feels fairer without using the third person camera to see around obstacles and the like.
Take your time and be prepared for people to be lurking. This can be extremely useful for taking out snipers or people trying to camp on the roofs of buildings in high traffic areas. Regardless of whether or not the circle moves left or right both players now only have information if they see it line of sight. This new perspective implies a different approach to several situations — like hiding at a corner and by a window — where one player has the complete view of the oncoming player, but the other is completely oblivious. In truth, both these modes have pros and cons.
The big change in the gameplay mechanics is that sub-weapons can now be equipped. That's pretty clearly just a bug. You're using the tools available to you to succeed. You cannot both promote casual play while simultaneously chasing the Esport dream. Playing from a first-person viewpoint offers a tactical and intense experience, plus the game feels more realistic! I've tried working through all the reasons for a preference and most of them just fall apart except comfort.
It's just a far superior experience in my book. Positioning yourself to deny someone else the advantage of seeing you is hard. Game's starting to wear thin for me, they really need to get the jank and lag under control if they want some longevity. And the only way they can compete. League of Legends© Riot Games, Inc. The same feature, as reported by the users, was missing, even in the Beta release of the global version.
If your argument is that the lack of a constant 360 degree view will allow a higher number of players to make it to the mid or late game, that just means the smaller circles will have more firefights that don't consist of two players staring at each other's trees. Camping's become a pretty funny term for shooters over the years. I mostly play solo so I'll only be doing 1st person those ways. Whatever they do I will be more than happy as long as 1st person becomes a thing. You see people just tanking the blue, buying time with meds and letting people die so they can get the best points placement. And having the Third Person camera helps you with that.
