Please remove all spawnable pilot classes from the map Coral Sea. They serve no purpose other than to allow the other team access to an enemy carrier. Also, when the majority of people play as pilots, there are fewer people willing to repair the ship. I know pilots did have the chance to parachute in many cases in real life, but in game they serve no purpose. If you ditch in the sea in game, you will end up dying, and IRL no one bails onto an enemy ship as they do in game. For the sake of gameplay, please make all classes Seamen on this map. Better yet, just make a kit with no guns or parachute, merely a wrench.
I never really liked Coral Sea.
For maps that are strickly air combat parachutes should be removed.
Pure air combat maps are annoying, and coral sea is bad A lot of the bad Dice maps need to be removed
But until they are (if ever) they should at least be fixed.
Bump. Tired of legitimate suggestions being pushed to the bottom under 3 "what planes do we want?" threads.
remove all the pilot kits,ppl use them to get in empty tanks,an uber pilot bails out behind enemy lines,captures a t-34 panther etc.,and changes the course of the battle
keep them on other maps, its not like pilots NEVER bailed out of planes.
I tend to agree, when I first played this map under FH I thought it a godsend compared to the vanilla BF42 release, where you had medics jumping out of planes with SMG's just to annoy the enemy carrier. I thought, well, at least pilots who bail out will easily be killed, with only a pistol to defend themselves, but now you still get nothing but people bailing out of planes the moment before they blow up, robbing me of a kill. Seeing them all try this with no 'chute, just to kill themselves on the water would be sweet. I'd enjoy a similar change to the allied spawn kit choices on Battle Of Britain. Sort of stinks to not have a wrench to repair the AA.
Some vanilla maps really needs to be removed. Coral Sea, Vanilla stalingrad etc..
