Maybe it looks like a "I can't play - nerf it!" and perhaps partially it is but what the hell. I thin that there are too many bofors on some maps (ie: Alam Halfa, mersa matruth) couse one AA gun per flag is too much i think. Not only that theyre superior comparing to flak but sometimes there used to whore a nerby flag. I'll admit thic mainly gos for stuka pilots and yeah, stuka were/are the type to be vunerable to that wepon but flying only to destroy an AA or two in a run just to come back after rearm and do the same is a little too much plus AA guns are repaired with ease. Destroying AA's on ground by my teamm8s full of teamwork and goodness int ther harts would be too much to ask- couse theyre so busy camping already:rolleyes:. The side effect of this idea would only be a bigger line at airfields. Anywhoo thats what I think about that case. I'm not asking to make planes uber mega supa killaz but make the odds a bit even.

I was thinking the same thing (esp on Mersa Mutrah.) It almost becomes a game of blindfolded whack-a-mole when you're in the Stuka.

stuka is to slow right now and therfore and easy target > will be fixed in next version

bofor repairs to fast > will be fixed in next version

bofor raping ground targets > is being discussed and will be adressed somehow in next version

i dont think any bofors will be actually removed cause these tweaks should help alot in balancing

any other worries ?

If i remeber correctly at least tobruk has been tweaked in the next version to make the bofors less rape freindly. If gets to much of a problem mappers could place the AA guns in a ditch in the ground or place objects in front of them.

I dont really see the problem with this. If you get killed by a Bofors then why dont you just arty spot it or get a tanker to blow it up for you? Or use a sniper to take it out? Thats why you got teammates. You gotta work together to achieve something, not work as a one man team.

one easy answer: NO TEAMWORK ON PUB SERVERS

Even then the way i see is that placing all sorts of objects infront of will eventually lead to the same situations that you saw in FH1 where AA was utterly useless on some maps due to being placed on a strange locations or only being to fire in a small area which pilots glady made use of.

the problem is on maps like tobruk when axis cap fort ariente (the top left flag second defense line) axis can use that bofor to randomly spam in the direction of the allied mainbase you wont see any target and just aim in the direction via minimap and you will reign hell in that mainbase with those 40mm HE shell going off midair.

i m completely OK with FLAK shooting vs ground targets, but this random spamming is neither fair nor intended

currently these bofors will either get locked for axis team or will get blocked view towards certain flags

I think the best option would be, as you said to lock it. Blocked view on the other hand gives me the feeling it will result in what i described before.
