Lets pray for Stingers in BF3!!!
No one ever takes me down with jet in bf2... I think those AAs were useless.

I'm expecting they are going to make it easier for the aa to shoot down the jets in bf3 like in bc2 the heli are totally useless

BC2 was designed for the chopper to be a slower, subpar wild card of a platform instead of a force multiplier like the tanks were meant to be. Vehicles in general were death traps in BC2 compared to BF2.

I like this. Can't wait for the game... a little under two months left. It's a nice incentive to keep playing, even if you just want to play for fun, seeing something new unlock would be really awesome.

I can't even remember how many times my friends and I have taken the heli on that lighthouse map (can't remember name at the moment) and just decimated the defenders the entire game. A good pilot can dodge rockets, and can land/repair pretty quickly. I think the helicopters were fine in BC2. BC2:Vietnam is another story; I can take down an entire helicopter by myself with an LMG.

10 times the unlocks means 10 times as hard to get new players interested after everyone else has been playing for a year or more. Not really interested in unlocks, and certainly not interested in having to devote 10-20 hours a week to playing just to keep the playing field level.

You talking clan vs clan scrims or just casual gameplay? Because any clan worth their salt is going to have a dedicated engineer team with two tracers on the chopper before it even takes off. That map in particular is hilarious, because you can tracer it from across the map.

I dont totally agree with this. Most of the maps that have choppers do have AA guns to use. While it is easy to take down a chopper with the AA gun a well coordinated team will be aware that their chopper is up and take the AA gun out before the other team has a chance to use it. As for RPGs etc I ahve personally been in the Blackhawk while my pilot has dodged them for a good 15min straight.

Choppers are not that easy to shoot down if the pilot is very good. As for other vehicles a good team plays a big part in their survivability.

Not even talking about the AA gun, the AA gun is awesome but it isn't the bane for choppers like the tracer dart is. In any clan match, you're going to face an army of engineers dedicated to taking you down. Like I said before, if you're playing a game full of casual players with the one or two engineers popping their heads up every so often from their anti-infantry CG addiction, then sure~ you're not going to have any trouble.

Hell~ EVERY single player in a game, regardless of class~ has the capacity to tracer your freaking helicopter in BC2. They have the option~ no matter what to lace you with an RPG that can't be avoided unless you use a perk designed to reduce you offensively, and even then the flare takes longer than it does for the RPG to load another missile, and heaven help you if there's more than two rockets aiming at the sky.

The game is hell for choppers. It just is. lol
