Hello! I am back to Planetside 2 after a break and like many others I am greatly enjoying the OMFG release and the aniversary 2x experience. It is good to be back, and I mark my return with a humble request as an avid tanker and engineer. Like all tankers, I thoroughly enjoy a good tank battle and am the veteran of countless armored confrontations. On occasion, however, I employ a different, and far more clever (if not nearly as effective) tactic versus my fellow tank drivers. If you have never done this, prepare yourself, because I am about to reveal a great secret! The tactic goes something like this... I take your standard IED (Improvised Explosive Device) cobbled together from whatever somewhat explosive materials I have on hand (a coffee can full of match heads and fart is my favorite). I then put this said explosive together with a proximity trigger and hide it in one of those huge single-slice pizza boxes! Genius right!? I figure that all that tanking works up an appetite! Wait... it gets better. Pizza is great, but there is actually no microwave in these future tanks (crazy, I know). To make the "pizza" even more tempting, I warm it up first! That's right, this "cheesy" treat is warm enough to show up in the thermal optics that many tankers use! The theory is that a starving taker will see a giant glowing pizza box in their thermal and drive right up to it. This idea actually caught on and now many crafty engineers are using the same tactic. I kid you not, one time I actually ALMOST damaged my tank on one! Now, believe it or not, as tempting as those devious deceptions look, the vast majority of tankers are never outsmarted by them. They have even taken to calling these devices "tank mines" as a jest. They are, of course referencing the highly effective and largely hidden weapons specifically designed to take out armored vehicles that were developed some 500 years ago. Their mocking of this clever but useless contraption actually got me thinking. What if these things were to be approached from a different direction? What if they we meant to be harder to see instead of like tempting beacons? They just may have more success? Keep in mind I am in no way asking for actual "tank mines." That would be totally crazy! All I ask is that we try to make our IEDs a little smaller, lower profile, and we should probably even stop heating them up. What say you guys?
