Helicopters too powerful? Let me give you a short list of the potential dangers to helicopters:

Heavy machinegunners, machineguns on tanks/APCs, Humvee-TOWS, tankshells, artilleryshells, Shilka/Vulcan, flakcannons, F16/MiG29, other helicopters etc etc

I think the main point with people complaining about the power of the choppers us because they don't work together/play things smart. I mean the "here I am driving my nice little tank in the middle of the desert without any airsupport"-attitude does get you killed over and over yes. But the moment one F16 with a decent pilot spots the Apache/Hind theyre toast.

You're right,Chief,if this game was played the way it was meant to be played there probably wouldn't be a problem.Trying to take one of these things down with a machine gun will work eventually(after multiple deaths)and then the same pilot is back 30 seconds later for another slaughter. There is a reason everyone wants to fly one--they are incredibly powerfull(How many freakin rockets can one Helo carry?!?) I've had this same argument before and it always seems to be with a pilot. I guess there are still maps to play without aircraft and maybe I'll stick to them,but this thread asked what I wanted and that's what I want,not an argument.You don't have to spell out all of the "potential dangers"I already know and I still think they're too strong. But I am curious,are you a pilot?

I fly helicopters every once in a while of course, but I'm mostly a tanker. And I've probably downed more helicopters with the M-109 and M1974 by now than there are drops of water in the ocean.

They're so easy to kill if you just play intelligently and get a feel for the various weaponsystems that can do that trick. I mean, one T-72 or Abrams parked on a hill in the proper way is very hard to kill by a chopper whereas the tank can fire shells at an alarming rate that mean instant death when the chopper is hit.

I'd like to see some more realistic rocket fire, in real life rockets on jets don't fire straight away. They fall a bit and then kick in. It has been done with scud missiles on a hind in the DC Secret Weapons MOD and would like to see these 'physics' used in DC 0.4.

I think they need to add more teams, like 2 vs. 2, and POW camps and stuff. They could also add a nighthawk,and way better NAVAL SUPPOURT!!!!!:dance: :bows:

Oh and nighttime maps, with nightvision googles for speaical ops.:rock: :naughty:

Ah well,if it goes unchanged I'll just have to suck it up and quit whining I suppose. I haven't quite got the hang of hitting choppers with a tank shell but I'll just have to practice I guess.

Now... asuming we'll get an SDK soon... hopefully... please?.. COMEON EA!! You're not that great!! common.. pleeaase.. I'll be you're best friend...

Yeah thats kinda what everyone is like right now... but hey.. WE NEED IT EA! GEEZ...

K.. heres my idea

Real Team Strategy Idea: by Joe

1. A new gameplay mode (such as "Co-op, capture the flag, etc." But this time... Theres a new enemy (read on)

2. Theres only 1 team the whole time... only 1 team...

3. Who are you versing?.... AI man... AI....

4. Think about it.. everyone plays as an american (or maybe even a vote to be either or...) and we all go off to kick some iraqi ass! (or... some patriot ass.. whatever...)

5. When you die... YOU DIE! or maybe have like.. a life system.. were you can only have a certain amount of lives (er... rienfocments)

So in other words this is what id like to see some day:

Everyones on the same team, the other team (be it iraqies or americans (boo!:mad:), is completely AI controled.. this would make team strategy increase atleast 100% lol... Alot more team based strategy moves, and this would make some guys work on battelfields RETARDED AI...

So im not saying I WANT THIS NOW... im just saying.. let it be a possibility? :naughty:

hehehe...

Just another idea :p

hey they should have super carriers with a real inside a diner and a shop and a hangar and a gym and all that from the gulf war and all that also ladders would be cool but humvees with trailers on back that tow atvs and all that would be cool to and sounds need to be fixed also some more under water stuff would be cool like a sub. and a interactive enviroment like a modern world like a cup of coffee on a table and a soap opera saddam was watching before the war u know more moder detail u know wake island its all still ww2 style. also more airplanes for opposition like they have 2 airplanes and one heli coalition have 2 helis 3 planes and more to come like the stealth bomber u know that would be cool and some underground iraq facilities u know and they have chinese silk worms that they might of launched or some nukes u know iraq has bio warfare and usa does futuristic and numbers:borg: :deal: they should take this good idea and offer
