the effects of 3rd person abuse are clearly exaggerated in built up areas
most 3rd person servers cater to entry-level/casual gamers who will not accept total disabling of 3rd person
the solution is to zone areas of the map where 3rd person abuse will be most disruptive to immersive gameplay (cities are traditionally CQB areas and best played in 1st person) and disable 3rd person serverside within those zones
this solution would be especially effective in games such as dayz where long periods of time are invested and where a seasoned player can be killed by a noob who has learnt to abuse 3rd person from youtube videos
the argument that 3rd person substitutes for the low FOV that 1st person provides is in a way invalid as FOV can easily be adjusted within 10 minutes in config files - this process is the same for ARMA2 and ARMA3 and available through a google search
My FOV is 105 degrees.
