Default A question concerning classes (kits)

Hi everyone.
i'm currently downloading all 3 parts of PR and in the meanwhile im reading the guide. what caught my attention was the limitation of snipers in a team. Doesn't this lead to that whenever there's a map switch the persons with the fastest PC get to play the sniper class all the time?

Well the sniper class is actually not played a lot of the time. It's an okay kit, but it also has a lot of drawbacks and against a good squad a sniper can be made into mincemeat in a fiff. it's a hard class and is not played like in a regular game.

No. PR has a higher time limit before the round actually starts, so even people with slower PCs will usually load before the round actually begins. And you can only get a limited kit after the round's started, by requesting it.

Snipers are actually rare in PR since every decent player will use the kits his squad leader wants to be used. While Snipers are highly useful in certain situations, it's rarely used correctly and there's normally no need for more than one sniper on a team. Players who grab a specialized kit without their squad leader's permission are greatly frowned upon and will be kicked on the properly administered servers.

EDIT: To elaborate, Snipers in PR aren't primarily a combat troop. Their main task isn't to get kills bur rather to do recon and mark targets for CAS.

In my experience there isn't always a sniper on the team. Not all maps are well suited for them to be effective. In addition, there is a 3 minute 'warm-up time' on most, if not all, servers. So no, you don't need to have the fastest computer.
Just remember to not join a squad only to grab the sniper kit and then leave.
Some people TK for that, tho most don't

Have fun out there

It warms the cockles of my heart to see new players like this come into the community (although I was a bit concerned by the immediate interest in sniping)!

A lot of what will help you get started is tagging along with a good, cohesive squad with a good squad leader your first few rounds. Being in the Netherlands, I hear some of the great servers are PRTA Mumble Server [EU] and UK Warfare server. There are a lot of very newbie-friendly players around here, just hop into an open squad and tell the SL you're new, he'll most likely help you get the gist.
