Downed Teammate Nameplates

If a teammate is down i should not see his nameplate when i zoom in. Its pretty obnoxious.

    I think there is something in the settings called 'vanishing nameplates'. I don't use it, so I don't know how it exactly works, but it might be good for you.
    Theory and reality are not that different. In theory.

    I feel ya bigtime on this one.

    That Vanishing nameplates thing, last time I tried it anyway it seemed broken to me.. most of the time I'd simply get no nameplates coming up at all.. zoomed or not, dead or alive.
    If my trollery drives you crazy, you'd better put on your seatbelt.

    Last time I used that it only showed name plates when you were directly on someone. Not a solid solution by any means.
    Pie charts + Graphs= Very Bad.

    I agree, this can be a bit annoying at times. It can really block your line of sight.

    Funny thing this was done a while ago perfectly in Beta.. then it was changed for god knows what reason.. last time I asked about it I got the same response as the vanishing nameplates.. not a solution.

    I use the vanishing nameplates option. Sometimes you may FF a guy if they're in a weird position or if fog makes them a bit obscure, but it's much nicer not seeing nameplates once I scope up.

    Yes this was never a problem before release Doba.

    Why must we break good things??

    I'll try the vanishing nameplates and see for myself if it fixes my situation.

    I think it should be a simple option in settings. If you wanna see it or not. It certainly blocks a big area of vision

    i have vanishing nameplates on. it only vanishes when you scope up and someone is in your scope. so a downed enemy that i am scoped up on his nameplate goes away but i can still see others.

    I agree that the nameplates are far too intrusive. Even when you're not scoped in. Nothing like standing there and seeing a cloud of nameplates.

    I've definitely had multiple times where I've scoped up, saw a guy just sitting there, but ignored him since I saw a nameplate over his head. Suddenly, the guy kills me. I then realized that the nameplate was a downed teammate.

    I still would prefer everything to be like AA2. Nameplates only show when you point at a teammate (or at very least crosshair is within a certain distance) and enemies are more differentiated (although they're much moreso now than they were when the game first came out). Other than that, no nameplates, no nonsense. We already have too much nonsense on the HUD as it is. Maybe it's also because I've played so many old school shooters where there were no radars, no nameplates, no floating objectives indicators. You just figured out the map on your own, used your brain to figure out friend or foe, and dealt with the rest.
