Our server has 60% health, no health regen / no vehicle regen, and no kill cams. Other than that, everything else is normal. A sniper shot at 200m that is NOT a killbox shot (heart/lungs or head) will not kill a person in one hit. A decent sniper will be hitting you with a kill shot anyway, which, even on a normal server with 100% health, with the SRR-61, which is what a lot of our snipers are using now, will kill you in one hit anyway.
The main difference between 60% health and 100% health is how many rounds from an assault rifle it takes to kill you. In a normal server, you gotta hit a person with half a friggin' clip. That's dumb. In a 60% health server, you gotta hit 'em with a well aimed burst to the kill box. "But that makes it easier for me to die. I don't like that." No, it makes it easier for you to kill. Running in the open without any form of cover makes it easier for you to die, and no health setting can stop you then.
Battlefield has pretty much always been a game based on squad communication and tactics. That, in my opinion, is what separates it from other military FPS. Seemingly every other military FPS these days throws you into the field of battle and has you running around like a character from The Expendables with godmode enabled. Battlefield forces you to utilize teamwork and tactical thinking to win.
