1. Should medics have fast ads time like 0.2 seconds?
=>Maybe not, but that's not the point. Remember there are already 4 lmg's that have 0.2 seconds, they have been that way since CB. I never heard anyone complain about it, most people don't even seem to know.
2. Should a sight sold seperately as 'Rapid-aim red dot sight' make the ads time faster or slower?
=> kind of a no-brainer if you ask me, unless you're missing the point.
And about the speed, what about an engineer running around with smg + ammo, pistol + ammo, 5 rpg's, 5 mines, 4 frags, airburst launcher + ammo and a repair tool. How does he not fall over? I'm pretty sure I'd rather carry an lmg and a cardboard flare.
Those LMG's that have faster ADS are weak compared to SAW or MG36. They actually should have faster ADS to be competitive weapons and have some advantage of their own. This is what most people who complain about slower ADS don't and don't want to understand and take into account.
Each weapon should be different and to have it's own advantages, slightly different but to be competitive, decent and useful weapon. Those who WHINE about slower ADS are the ones who play with MG36 or SAW and want these weapons to act as assault rifles because they KNOW VERY WELL they have been killed many times in CQC because of slower ADS and LMG's bad hipfire. They simply don't like situations when they are chopped off in second by AR or SMG on Sharqi even with hipfire.
Since both SAW and MG36 have LESS RECOIL from M16 and AEK (most used AR's) they should have slower ADS and bad hipfire NO MATTER how much some dork whines or else nobody would play as Assault. What would be the point of assault rifles besides LMG's that act the same way+gigantic magazines?
I think that those who whine about slow ADS have never played as Assault or Engineer or they just didn't played enough to see pros and cons of each class and that's why they seem so delusional.
They only see their problem and want their problem to be fixed no matter if the balance between the classes could be broken.
People didn't complained about those slow ADS 4 LMG's simply because they are not as good as SAW or MG36, SIMPLE AS THAT and that's why nobody cared. Even if those LMG's had ADS as SMG's they probably still wouldn't be OP.
Also, you can't compare Engineer's equipment with LMG because LMG has about 80 bullets (with casket mags even more) and you can spray as much as you want but Engineer can't.
Because of having much more bullets in your weapon and being able to kill multiple enemies without reloading you MUST BE slowed down in some aspect, movement, ADS, bad hipfire and to simply be more stationary class, not as much aggressive as Assault or Engineer. Since Medics can sprint just like any other class, they are balanced with slower ADS and bad hipfire.
If you don't understand this, then you don't understand what the balance between classes means and I'm talking to a wall.
