some suggestions, discuss!

- map change on game end has been removed. can we have that back?
- going afk in lobby could put you into spectator

- LOS blindspot. units could have a blindspot to their back, snipers could a tunnel view to the front (and default fire on radar dots removed).

I thought LOS was due to their sensors around their bodies

well maybe that los thing was some dodgy idea.
the other 2 points are more serious

Play a bit of Spring 1944 http://spring1944.net/ and let me know how you like directionality of turrets on tanks and artillery, as well as directionality of armour on tanks. Typically vehicles are weak at the back so easier to destroy if you can get behind them.

This is not directly directionality of LOS, but it's easy for a guy to turn their head, but slower to turn a turret. In some limited light mode (like dark maps and people using torches in a FPS) it makes sense, but I'm not sure that having cone vision would work in ZK even in a special mode.

some units are weaker to their back cause their weapon direction already you can raid a scorpion from their back.
other idea los circle cud be moved a bit to the units front (units position not in the middle of los circle)
i guess los cut to tunnel view it might be hard to control the units sight (by mouse).

While Spring generally has nice unit controls, they completely lack detail for such maneuvers. With the current ZK controls I'm already annoyed by vehicles not being parallel to each other after line move, trying to control every unit's attitude manually would be hell.

Pretty good, would save the hassle of "Spec afklobster?"

Some people like to play on the same over and over, so it would be a detrimental change to them while some would think it is a godsend
