When did wearing capes into battle fall out of fashion?

When did wearing capes into battle fall out of fashion? Are we ever going to see a resurgence in popularity in modern warfare or will it forever just be restricted to fantasy fiction?

Battle capes thread, I guess...

    Capes were never worn in battle by rank and file soldiers because they get in the way. Only some officers would put them on to look distinctive.

      That's moronic. Don't they know that there are goddamn snipers all around this area who'd love to grease an officer?

        hard to believe but there used to be a time when snipers didn't exist and neither did radios. so you'd actually want your officers to look as distinctive as possible.

      Most capes are confused with Cloaks. Cloaks cover both shoulders and help keep bad weather off of you.

        Capes do the same thing. What you're thinking of are the fashion accessory capes that only serve as an affectation.

          Same, while also being furiously envious that he got to share a hot tub with and probably frick Kayla Kleevage back when she was still friend's mom that used to be a stripper and kept the mega breasts after she settled down tier. Don't look up what she looks like now, it's just sad. I still would, but I am incurably addicted to huge fake breasts, and I would definitely pay extra for a threesome with Minka(they're friends in real life). So sad when I think that if I had lived in LA, and realized I have a big dick sooner(I was 18 in 2000 right about the middle of the age of huge mega fake breasts),I could have probably banged most of those chicks I spent the majority of my teen years fapping to, and got paid to do it.

      Bonus to recruitment numbers, canonically Helldivers are basically American Hitlerjugend meets Volksturm that get frozen and launched into suicide missions, arguably the pogs on your ship are worth more than the hundreds of popsicle helldivers on it.

              Unironically, the next gen of elite soldiers will be picked from gamers. Drone pilots, tank commanders, even infantry. Having the hand-eye coordination and familiarity with using HUD and VR will be more important than how many push ups you can do. Games are also to zoomers what tv and movies are to boomers. Why not slip in some propaganda to boost recruitment.

                I’ve had a good time with randoms so far, unfortunately the destiny 2 player base is playing this game so occasionally you get absolute mongoloids that demand you play meta strats, if they do just leave the game and quick match again. Takes a few seconds to find a game with about 600,000 people playing.

                Is it like deep rock galactic? I fricked with that game but never played much for some reason

                It’s kind of like Deep Rock but there are no classes or any defined rolls. There also isn’t a meta other than there being one really good gun, all the other guns sans the OP’s revolver are perfectly fine being used at the hardest difficulty. There’s objectives for you to complete and everyone knows what to do without being told. There’s no obnoxious cosmetics, everyone is a faceless helmeted grunt waging a galactic war. It’s a decent online game.

                Very few people have used their mics, almost everyone has a mic but no one says anything other than sorry I just killed you guys with this cluster bomb. People have been friendly.

              It's a very simple game loop that does its job extremely well:
              >Pick your mission type
              >Pick your loadout and stratagems (support weapons, airstrikes, sentry guns, orbital bombardment, etc)
              >Drop in with hype music blasting
              >Run around and complete your primary objectives
              >Look for secondary objectives to do, samples to upgrade your ship and enemy bases to destroy
              >Probably get friendy fired by a teammate dropping a cluster bomb airstrike too close to you
              >Move to extraction and hold off the enemy for 2 minutes while your shuttle arrives
              >Go back to orbit, buy new stratagems and do it again.

              The gameplay mechanics are solid, the atmosphere and sound design are great, the enemies are satisfying to shoot, and the map randomization keeps missions interesting. You might drop in to a quiet area and have a moment to get your bearings. You might also drop next to an enemy patrol and immediately be in a firefight the second you step out of your pod. It completely blows modern AAA slop out of the water with a $40 price tag.

                People generally take them for kiting and to not have to deal with every mook that gets near you. But yeah it's fricking annoying when a teammate passes by you and you get cut in half because his drone decided to target that one jetpack bot or hunter right next to you.

                Drones are to clear the nearby ankle biters. They interrupt the bots' aim too. Shield is much better, but the dogs are usually better to have than not.

                Honestly at the higher levels you're just looking for an excuse not to take shield and railgun every game.

            "Elite" as in better equipped and better supported than planetary militia. But just looking at the equipment you get compared to the things you have to fight against really shows that you're just the disposable boots-on-the-ground errand boy that does odd jobs and directs the real firepower.
            As you said, they absolutely play up your importance and exceptionality because by god do you need every form of positive reinforcement when facing a Charger with a half-empty SMG. They do not want you to die before you finish the tasks.

              Not really the same soldier, the game has a "randomize helldiver voices" setting remember? If they were the same person everyone would have the same voice and body type.
              They most have cloned like 5 people or something.

              You have hundreds of cryopods of soldiers in the same uniform.

              They're not clones. They're volunteers. The in game propaganda talks about recruitment, citizenship tiers, life expectancy and promises if you finish your tour.

              Your original helldiver died in the tutorial. The one on the ship is the diver that survived the tutorial and is lucky enough to have been dropped two minutes before the pelican landed and survives to drop first in the second mission.

      Capes are superior to other clothing for protecting the wearer from the elements. So on long foot marches through a harsh environment, a caped army would fare better. If in doubt try, try donning a cape under rain/hot sun/cold. You'll be surprised how comfy.

      I really don't like this piece. The pose is all wrong. They're in a den of heretics and daemons. The guardsmen are just standing around as if an officer, a commissar and space marine stabbing a daemon with spears is just Wednesday. It may as well be a bbq of some sort, just some mates casually skewering a big fat grox. Where is the emotion? Where are the terrified guardsmen holding different angles, watching out for more crazed heretics while a few more wait anxiously in the background, lasguns only slightly lowered but very much pointed at the daemon? Where is the blood, sweat, and tears of the dead?

    How is the soundtrack on the new flavor of the month game? The first game had really good soundtack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Zw0McmrOl4

    I don't have a system to play it on so i have not been paying attention to the sequel. I got the first game back when it released and i thought it was pretty good and fun, enough that i wasted money buying the DLC for it. Then i came to realize the DLC was pay to win and that got bored of the whole game only a week or two later cause i had done it all already. Everyone running around with the exact same lame OP laser carabine didn't help either.
