Now I'm not asking for a simulation shooter because quite honestly they suck so I'm fine with the whole "regen health" thing on players...but on vehicles? Since when have vehicles had the ability to heal themselves? That just sounds retarded to me
Link: http://au.pc.ign.com/articles/117/1172554p1.html look for the 5th paragraph or just search "vehicle" on the page and you'll find it or wtf I'll just paste it:
Vehicles have also been tweaked in Battlefield 3, in hopes of making them more fun for both the operator and passengers. Vehicles regenerate small amounts of health when damaged, but in order to heal to full will need the assistance of an Engineer. Vehicles can also be immobilized right before destruction, forcing an Engineer to intervene to save it, and giving the passengers a chance to bail out. The hope is that this will alleviate a lot of the rage that comes from a team jumping into a humvee, only to be destroyed by one well placed rocket. Yes, the rocket might kill the person it blows up right next to, but the whole squad won't be punished for one crazy driver, or feel like vehicles are death traps.
