I was actually referring to the fact that I prefer to launch blobs from third person, when people are hoping the canyon.

yews 3rd all the time for saber/melee/baton and nades. Switch for mines, depending if I want exact placement or not. 1st for guns usually, unless I'm trying to look around boxes, or I'm navigating through small areas. Then I switch to 3rd.

Um, using third in small areas is actually bad (easy to third person yourself on ceilings etc)

Agreed, but I feel it's a worthwile payoff to see what's around the corners.

The only benefit of using first person is when you're aiming up or down and your body blocks your view of whatever your aiming at and even then if you have played in third enough you are used to it. In siege there aren't enough times where you are aiming up or down at an enemy to make toggling a lot even worth it. In ctf I toggle a lot more though.
