I bet I am not the only one talking about this kind of "abused" strategy, it's when players pack all the covers together as well as the ressources behind or in front to form a nest of covers.
This strategy is very efficient...but it's an old strategy, it keeps getting older and it can become really annoying by time. Because all the covers are packed together, the defenders can put a lot of pressure against the raiders and if every defender have a LR, it can be very dangerous...even worse if it can outrange the raiders (like an unique with 50% more range).
It's a strategy, but it can be countered with grenades. Once your grenades are in range and your raider is using the compound's door covers, it can destroy the entire nest. But if the defenders put traps inside the compound and your engineer die from a triggered trap, you'd have to deal with the nest by taking it from the front, but because the nest keeps the raiders under high pressure, it's almost impossible to attack it without losing one raider.
So let me ask you something Con, find something that makes this strategy less interresting to use, something to counter it more easily than outranged grenades...maybe a throwing range bonus for the fighter because it's supposed to be an assault class, or maybe mortars as a passive gear to increase the grenades' throwing range outside buildings, or maybe you can able the craft of components for a makeshift tank that shoots shells from a long distance (1 per raid only) and is immune to fire suppression but has to be rebuilt if destroyed, or something like the ability to craft/scavenge weaker but lighter grenades so it can be thrown further, etc...
I know I'm whining about that, but getting bullied by fuel rushers, "kill everyone" raiders and trashers is starting to make me crazy...and all of the raiders I have been against have nest compounds, raiding them is a nightmare.
PS: is there any way to post pictures from my desktop so it can give you a better idea of my meaning?
