I personally doubt the effectiveness of Longbow sniping, as accuracy degrades quickly, but I will admit hat it has its place.
Ambush snipers can be a lynchpin in a defense, and can cause all manner of h***.
Ghost Flankers serve the same purpose in a offensive capacity.
If the sniper can effectively swing from one to another then they can be highly effective regardless of the tactical situation.

I'm seeing an interesting trend here in the Sniper subforum. In the days of olde, this subforum and its bloated subforums in turn were swarmed with "iz th!s fEEdnek g00d for sn1p!ing?!!!????" or "i want to make my a-5 good for ambush flankersniperhaxorz9000" topics. However, a new crop of threads have sprung up, with members asking interesting topics, and articulating their theories and ideas clearly. I sincearly hope this trend continues; I might come here more often.
As for the topic at hand, I don't like to pigeon-hole myself or my team into SpecOps' or anyone else's positions. Doing so severely limits your playing experience IMO, and therefore limits the fun you and your team can have on the field.
I don't see why a player in any position, sporting any marker, can't be stealthy when he/she needs to be, or understand why any player can't be still and quiet and wait for a group of opfor to walk in the killzone, or why any player with any marker can't learn how to longball his opponent. I believe it's the players who can quickly adapt themselves to any situation that are the most effective.

ghost flanking is tactically the most effective IMO because nto only are you moving forward at the pace of a normal player, but if you're smart at all, you're staying unseen, and possibly coming in behind an enemy position. i'd rather see a ghost flanker seek out and destroy a bunker full of opfor, than see a player laying around a trial for 30 minutes waiting to pick off a wandering newbie or two.
call me old fashioned, but seek and destroy beats prowl and growl any day of the week in my opinion.
