Max Friendly Icon Dist on Servers #1 and #2

Hi admins,
I just noticed that the 'Max Friendly Icon Dist' setting for RS2 servers #1 and #2 are set to '50m' while the #3 and #4 servers are set to '150m' (which is better for less TKs and knowing friends from enemies). Is it possible to set these to 150m instead unless we want more TKs on those servers?

Even better let's set server 3 and 4 to 50m.

I'd be happy with 15 m so that you can id your close by on proximity like a radioman but leave it at that...

Lol touche. I guess it comes down to whether the admins care more about muh realism or less TKs and frustration. I get that some folks prefer shorter icon distances, but they can set it to a shorter distance client-side in the Options if they care so much.

Looks like someone's gone in and increased them to 150m. Thanks!
Again, if 'muh realism' is important to anyone, you can change it in your settings to 50m.

Just noticed you can change it to 10m or None in the HUD Settings.

You can change it to 10m or Off in your HUD settings my man.

Well i kinda see both sides on this but also if you are relying on the Doritos you should just stop doing that.... tbh learn to identify targets or keep being shit, up to the player i guess.

A little piece of my would die when hearing someone apologies for a TK and say 'sorry couldn’t see your tag'.
Friendly fire is part of war but gamers are a careless lot I guess.

I think the real issue with TKs in RS2 are the similar-but-different uniform kits between some factions (same as Squad). In Insurgency the models are completely different. Any of these l33t professionals on here that may tell you that they never TK a player from a far enough distance that you can't tell much of a difference, is lying. If a noob like me doesn't TK with the help of doritos, and a more experienced player can turn the icons off completely if they want.... seems like a win-win Smile

didn't you have tags turned off on the RO2 servers Cat?
The average rounds expended per kill with the M16 in Vietnam was 50,000. Snipers averaged 1.3 rounds.
The cost difference was $2300 v 0.27 cents.
