Developers Say Brink Won't Be A Sniper's Paradise
Snipers. They aren't necessarily the same thing as campers, but they can be equally annoying.
And when it comes to Splash Damage's colorful and brutally entertaining Brink, it seems those snipers will be left out in the cold. The game just isn't designed for them, so say the developers. In speaking to GameArena, creative director Richard Ham says their game doesn't "accommodate" snipers, because they want to insure that everyone has a "good time." Said Ham:
"Brink effectively does not do a very good job of supporting that type of gameplay. So if those type of players want to just sit on the Grassy Knoll all game long getting one hit kills they're going to find themselves just a little bit frustrated with Brink, but that's so we can make sure everyone else has a good time, so seven out of eight people have a great experience instead of just one out of eight."
You can always add scopes to many different guns in Brink but considering the map design and various match objectives, it seems that snipers won't be able to rule the roost from afar. We're wondering what the multiplayer aficionados have to think about this...preferably, we'd like to hear from those who aren't always snipers. ;)
