So because someone has taken the time to master a vehicle and you cannot destroy them with your one shot lock on skill cannon, they should be removed from the game completely?
SImply put, everything in this game has always been about balance. This kills this and that kill that each in their own respective ways. But, if you have someone extremely skilled in a jet. They are impossible to take down, which they shouldnt be. There should be a way to take down even the best pilots.
As it is now Flares-&gt; boost -&gt; below radar-&gt; recharge-&gt; loop-&gt; attack-&gt; rinse and repeat. They should do something like.... Below radar only working above starting bases. If your low enough over the battlefield to attack ground troops, your risking too much and should feel that risk by not being able to just fly under the radar so noone can get a lock on... food for thought.
We aren't impossible to take down, lol.
Just get a bit better in the jet yourself and handle your team's air superiority on your own.
No ace is invincible.
Our effectiveness also goes down exponentially with the number of lock on weapons on the map at any time. An ace can almost be useless if facing a combination of stingers, heatseeker jets, and heatseekering helicopters. It'll take us a few minutes to clear our areas in that situation, which is a lot of leeway for ground troops.
If you want to deal with an ace, essentially, use teamwork. Otherwise, you'll get smashed. That's how Battlefield works; not this ridiculous 'rock-paper-scissors' system that so many of you want.
im an decent jet pilot myself.
i can, with ease, fly below radar close to the ground with no problems.
I can outrun and out maneuver other decent sometimes good jet pilots.
I can swoop in destroy a tank in one pass and get away with stingers trying to lock on and get low and get away scott free.
I cannot, out maneuver ace pilots. I try keeping my speed at the recommended turning speed but the ace pilots just fly circles around me.
The great pilots SHOULD be near impossible to take down FROM THE AIR. But, when they get low and above the battlefield they SHOULD be able to be taken down. The way everything is atm its just too easy to get in and out and low with jets and stay alive.
- Like i said, make below radar only effective above bases. Let the battlefield be free rein. you get too close to the ground you deserve to be shot down. Stay in the air and take down the other air units and stay at a distance and take down the mobile ground units.
This discussion can go 2 ways... with the idiots coming in crying themselves about ppl crying. or having a simple adult discussion about something in the game...
