alright yeah the javelin should be a position for the SPPL. the rest of em they aren't gonna make patches or such or anything like that. the scenario positions section is for positions played at scenario games that arent SPPL format, there are not tanks medics engineers and squad leaders, thats just a man/woman thats higher ranked than everybody else. so forget about trying to make up positions for the SPPL format, this is not a direct insult to you it is something that everyone, mostly noobs to the forum, who need to read this and understand it. this section of the forum is to discuss positions in scenarios, such as engineers and such, not to make up new positions. theres not much point to, i mean you can t have an all powerful position, because you need one person to specialize in one thing and then putting together everyones specialties you have a team.

Tanker and Tank hunter should most definitely be positions, the others....not so much.

Javelin is a very important position, and I think it would make a good addition to specop's list. I would like to see some products made for this position.

Bones may be ideal after some adjustment, but I feel that most medics just play a regular position with the ability to heal included. However, some medics do take it to the extreme and deserve to be recognized as their own position.

Chavalry has no chance at becoming a position recognized by specops IMO. There is just to small of a group to become their own position.

Also, squad should not become it's own position. Come on, you can be a commander np matter what size of a force you are leading.

Edit- I do my best to sound educated...

Hey, it's your game, call anyone what you want. As long as you have a common understanding with your teammates as to what their jobs are. I don't use the dagger/sabre/ etc terminology when playing, nor do I use the Medium rifleman, etc. as my teammates don't know those terms. We use the terms point man, flanker, sniper, assassin, support gunner, and guard (bunker or General guards) mostly.

if a medic can cure anything than that would be a pointless game, you could get a medic,especially if its a friend, to "heal" you evey time you get shot. you should not be able to be "healed" if you get a head or chest shot.

well, for medic, it could be run similar to america's army or some other games, i cant remember where else ive seen it before. you cant be healed back to full health, but bleeding could be stopped. instead of bleeding, you could only be healed for arm or leg shots. 1 leg/arm shots would be a death, but if healed, it would not count as a hit. medics would have to carry around certain pins or flags that can be stuck onto the hit area. if hit 3 times in a non lethal area, so arm/leg shots, then you can no longer be healed.

Here is my view:

1) Javelin: Me being one myself, I know that Javelins are all around. It should definitely be made a position.

2) Calvary: No. I'm sorry but tanking just cannot be made a full time position. It is a cool name, but who would go around saying, " The position I play is Calvary". It just shouldn't be made a position.

3)Bones: I love medics and engineers, but DON'T COMBINE THE TWO TOGETHER, IT WOULD MAKE A TEAM INVINCIBLE!!!! Make medics and engineers a position, but don't combine them together.

4)Squad: Make a smaller unit commander, but make it platoon commander, like everyone else said.

I say seperate Bones and come up with some sweet names. Oh, and in case you haven't noticed on the top of your brigade page there is room for three more positions so it would be easy to add some without distorting everyones page.

Javelin isn't a position. Neither is Javelin gunner. Those who shoot the Javelins have other MOS's (Military Occupational Specialties). For example... the Marines have an MOS called an 0352 Antitank Assault Guided Missileman. They fire all different types of missiles not just Javelins. They also act as a reconnaissance element for a Weapons Company.

So adding that "position" wouldn't make sense. Now adding in "Anti-Tank" or "Anti-Armor" man would sound better. However the Army doesn't have those either. In ODA's (Special Forces) everyone is trained on the use of anti-armor. In the standard Infantry... I couldn't tell you really as I don't know.

Don't know what "bones" was... and "squad" relates to the entire team not a single position so that one wouldn't make sense.

I don't understand why people feel the need to label something specific. Why not let your own team define what positions you have? Why does a website... and company have to do that for you? Sable, Hammer, etc... why? I understand the concept they're going for... but it's unnecessary to label everything.

OK, this is a new low in necroposting. This thread is 11 MONTHS OLD.

Also, these will not become Special Ops positions. Sure, you can play them and call them positions. THey probably work great. But the Special Ops positions are aimed towards flexibilty and usefulness everywhere. They are aimed around the basics.

Maybe he was deployed... who cares how old the thread is... if it's still open (not locked) then it's up for discussion.

In my team I been playing a position called "Beef Supreme". I go on the field and sling frozen meat at people. Go ahead and laugh but is it really any stupider than some of the other proposed ones.
