idea....i posted this, https://getsatisfaction.com/battlefield3/topics/only_jets_helicopters_game_mode_idea [getsatisfaction.com]

But wanted to add it here as well.....

You should add in a new game mode for Air to Air Combat. One mode for Jets and one mode for Helicopters. No need to make new maps can use current maps. 10 v 10 Air to Air Combat mode.

could be limited to only one in a Helicopter for balance.

Mission Deathmatch, or Land and Capture ''maybe not, just an idea'', but Deathmatch, Yes....

I would love to see this happen, not only it will improve peoples flying skills but also change things up as Battles do take place in the air as well. It should not be too hard to sort out as its just really a game mode, no need to make new maps, just add 20 jets for one mode and 20 helicopters for the other, 10 vs 10 Air to Air Combat Warfare.

just play air maps. since there is only fast vehicle respawn left, it is anyway like a "minigame in the skies" Ofcourse you get killed occasionally by AA (or regularly if your the chopper)

thats fine playing on air maps only, but im talking about Only having Helis vs Helis and Jets vs Jets game modes on current maps. I would love to play a Heli or Jet match on the map Strike At Karkand and Sharqi Peninsula etc. With out having to worry about other problems taking you out like tanks and rpgs etc etc.

Sweeping in and out of buildings chasing each other in helis or jets on those maps would be so epic. 10 vs 10, one mode for Helis and one for Jets.

RaveMirror, as much as i do like Ace Combat, Battlefield is not Ace Combat lol....


This should not be too hard for DICE to do as its not making new maps for this mode, its just replacing people and tanks, with Helis and Jets. Jets could spawn in mid air flight in random areas as well to stop base raping, Same with Helis. And jets and Helis can go outside the restricted areas of the maps so each map is already big enough for a 10 v 10 Air to Air game mode.

Regards.

with gunners would be better, a massive tv war would be awesome (and the tv teamkill would make it so hilarious)

Otherwise dude, You'll make a heatseekers war (HS)

With jet as they are now.
NO tHX; nerf them first, add game mode later.

this makes no sense. Jets are op'd vs ground assets(arguably) not against each other. So nerfing jets would only hurt this awesome idea.,

I dont think the Heatseeker for helis will be that much of a problem as you could always get low and hide in between buildings, like on the b2k maps if this idea was made.

yawn. That's what I think. What if both jets get done, then the chopper? Then its just a rape fest. Nah, don't think it would work tbh.

just machine guns on planes
i always thought a 2 seat plane too would be a good idea ..like a bomb seat ^^
the bigplane which can hit and see everyone on the map is like the commander from bf2 but it should be more of an anti air item i think ..not vs groundforces -which already has to deal with groundforce guns then tanks they can't damage much and heli's and planes that shoot them up and now a master gunship that adds to it .. really puts you off being groundtroops ..which is a right pain for someone squad based ..but no one writing games listens.

i was working on a concept picture for BF3, the map is at sea with 2 aircraft carriers spaced nicely ,each team would get 4 jets each ,1 attack heli each and 2 support choppers each,the game would be deathmatch only,just open sea.
