I <3 the jets.
I didn't make it!
Hey guess what I found! I wanted to buy gold and saw olo0t.com They have power leveling!
I like them. I love flying them, even though i suck. I love watching them fly over head, especially when they are in a dogfight. 2142 is abit boring without them, and in 2142 it is v.easy to take down the attack ship, meaning its role is that important anymore, where as the attack heli and jet in bf2 play a really big role. Without the jet its just dull :bows:
the aircraft are too stacked. im all for having jets and helis but pls make the maps more than just 2 miles in diameter. maps with jets should have an airbase where only helis and jets spawn that is say 5 miles behind the uncap ground base. and to rearm you should have to completely land with jets and helis, not just buzz. rearmament tims should also be increased. also, the sams in bf2 are waay too pathetic. jets are plain out unkillable in bf2 without another jet. and helis taking 3 hits from a sam and not even being set on fire? come on! and the AA range is pathetic. a real stinger has a range of 3-5 miles. now its range in bf2 is less than 300 yards. so a heli can hover out there and rape a base with tv missles while having no threat to themselves. the prescence of them isnt the problem, its the crappiness of the AA and speed rearm.
As an honest to god jet whore I would say up until they screwed up the J-10/F-35 balance aircraft were a pretty good part of the game. But now on maps like Wake the air fight is so unbalanced that it requires a very good USMC team to beat even a marginal PLA team if they have a couple good pilots in the air.
I think the real problem most people have with the jets is that they're not used properly by most pilots. I'm part of a clan and you can ask any of my teammates, my first priority is always supporting the ground troops. I spend more time hunting tanks than other aircraft because your primary objective in BF2 is to cap flags and the jets should be helping accomplish this.
As far as the AA imbalance I think it really depends on the way the team is playing. Ya you right one AA site can not bring down a jet, but if your team is working together and you have 2 or 3 manned then once the flares are dropped anything except a J-10 is almost helpless.
I don't think the idea of having to land to rearm is realistic, I mean yes it is realistic, but it is such a pain in the ass to land and most of the runways are so short it simply would be too cumbersome. However I would totally support having all aerial spawns be farther out from the actual battleground, but EA is never going to relase any new vanilla maps for BF2 and since no on plays custom maps unless its part of a major mod, we're pretty much stuck with what we've got. Just hope that you're jet pilots aren't retarded and if I'm in the air and you spot armor, don't stand next to it because bombs are generally inbound within 30 seconds.
jets are great many people get the game for the jets because there are no online jet games out there they add realizem.
i love jets and when im in one i can bomb an antpile with pure precision and aim
btw dont u just hate it when a noob gets in your plane
i tk ppl out of them all the time just for me to get one :D
I hate it when people tk for the plane, then when they get in it they smash it into the first building around. Also the assholes that blow up the jet cause there not close enough damn noobs!
I totally agree with having a Jet base 3-5 miles outside of the regular uncap base, and having to land and re-arm. To bad PRMM released it's final mod, they could a done that!
I think the jets are balanced. That's what it's like in real life. Come on. Planes pwn all on the ground with pure speed. And the SAMs are balanced. The can seriously damage a plane and anyone who knows how to use them right can swat planes out of the sky like flies. The lock-on is too long, yes... I personally love jets and helis. I try to get as good as I can on them. But, don't you just hate the guys that think it's smart to go on an online server to 'learn' to fly when they can do that offline and not p*** off everyone? I think if anyone really finds it annoying that the other team has a good pilot that can pwn all ur ground ppl they need to find a good pilot for their side or learn to fly cos in the end, planes are the best counters to planes and dogfights just look damn cool. As a plus, just getting a plane to engage an enemy plane will take it's attention away from your teams ground forces so.... work as a team and make your moves while he's distacted. That's just something I decided I had to say based on what has been posted thus far.
