Change the "whoever shoots first" problem!

This game is basically unplayable for 90%+ of the matches because of this whoever gets the first shot off, wins.  What good is armor when you make bullets that penetrate so easily?  1 shot shouldn't kill someone wearing full class 4 armor.

Yes, generally that's how it works in real life.

This is a combat simulator..

Armor is not supposed to make you invulnerable. Theres gonna be this armor plate system which will make armor less protective, as there are the actual plates inside.. the plates can be in front and back, in some vests even the sides, but they will not cover the whole vest area. There are spaces in between them and if you hit these the bullet will ofc penetrate. No ETA on this mechanic tho, probably not gonna happen for a while.

EFT goes for realism in these combat/ballistic mechanics. At least in the most cases. Armor and penetration is one where they go for realism, if we dont count the unrealistic helmets. All the values are still very much WIP, but armor is not gonna be unrealistically protective in the future, as its not something thats supposed to happen. You should be happy that helmets are unrealistically protective, this was done to "make them worth the money" and thus give players an incentive to use them. The other armors we have in EFT are pretty much as protective IRL as they are in-game, so theres no need to make them unrealistically protective to provide this incentive.

Mate, if you're dying to players who get the first shot off, you should either take it slower and observe your surrounding, or if you're in a group, use your teammates to try to pinpoint the shooters. If it's in CQB, of course who ever has better position, and better bullets is gonna win
