And no, I'm not a sucky player who thinks everyone is cheating and hacking, I know I'm not that good. But some stuff is blatantly obvious. Like a guy who comes into a room and your sitting 2 floors up staring at the door. He comes in and even though there are enemies in front of him, snaps immediately up and 1 shot kills me when I only just got to fire off 2 bullets, and I started shooting the instant he was visible. Stuff like that happens quite often if your watching for it. (Often to me being a couple times a day max. Noticing 5-6 cheaters a week is a lot to me... )
I find myself simply driving Sunderers and Magriders most of the time as of late just to avoid that kind of thing, and been going as an engineer as well. And I can't understand whats going on with me and aircrafts. I see people making such incredible manuevers and even with my highest DPI setting, Windows settings and in game settings maxed out for mouse sensitivity, I still turn like a turtle in comparison, So I've completely abandoned aircraft altogether, which is sad, cause it looks so fun.Your a newish player to the scyth it seems. What you gotta understand is that players who have maxed out the frame will be able to move far better then you can. Also, players who have dedicated hundreds if not more hours will be able to fly circles around you. We have learned how to move the frames in ways that unless you've dedicated alot of time, you'd not be able to figure out without countless hours of trial and error. I've learned how wide my craft is, I can flip it and sqeeze between rocks and tight gaps. Stuff like this will allow you to lose tails, and missiles. I can pull high G turns that unless you rotate your craft in a certain direction you just float and turn like most do. I won't dig into the details as I've been almost 1,000 hours since hardware testing and beta mastering these skills. But if you dedicate yourself to it, you will improve. Also spend some certs on the timer so you don't gotta wait half an hour to fly again. I can spawn, crash into a ditch and spawn another scyth in less then a couple minutes. It truely helps being able to keep flying to master it, and not try it once a day.
And for Vanu on Jaeger... whats with everyone? last few days I can't find a squad that sticks together at all. I'm finding myself doing solo base cap's and seeing about 5-6 NME aircraft and a bunch of tanks incoming on a base you just solo'd... its funny stuff. Trying to hold down said base, much funnier. Heck tonight I ran with quite a large platoon of about 20+ players, and would rarely see more than 3-4 together at a time... even checking map, 3-4 people groups spread all over... I gotta get a mic, and learn the chat functions better. The first week I didn't care about talking but when I started looking for stuff like say, talking in squad chat, theres nothing intuitive or easy at all... I gave up and stopped caring again for another bit.
Now those that say ground vehicles get stuck a lot... I don't understand at all. I have a hard time getting stuck if I tried to be honest. As long as the thing has the power to make the incline, I can make it over just about anything. And aside from flipping a vehicle, have NEVER been stuck. And whats with vehicle flipping? You can't get out, you can do anything, you have to suicide and respawn... Seems silly and needs to be fixed.You sound more like a team player then a pub type. I would really suggest you find a community or perm outfit to join to play with. This will really increase you enjoyment factor and allow you to really get a feel for the game instead of just trying to solo cap everything. if your interested check out my community, I don't think we are on your server but search out www.taw.net. We have 3 divisions all with over 40 active daily players NA, EU, and AU divisions.
And as for certs. People should really read up before spending their certs so they don't end up wasting them like me. Not knowing I couldn't cert more than one type of armor at once, as theres nothing that states you can't, I ended up certing multiple armor at once at first, only to realize you can only use one (and it took me a few days before I noticed that "certs" don't automatically get put on your character after you buy them, which is what I've noticed a lot of people talk about) The next time I hear "Forward grip didn't do anything for my weapon, this game sucks, what a waste" in chat and then find out said player didn't actually equip the item they bought... Oi. I can sadly see a bunch of newer players quitting fast simply because nothing is spelled out for them at all. I know theres video tuts and such, but most people won't play a single one of those. And I know its technically the users fault, but most games have something that helps you along, weather it outright tells you, or is simply designed to be very intuitive, which aside from the most basic functions, this game is lacking in.I personally don't know many games that will auto equip skills, or weapons for you after buying them. Even COD makes you build a kit or something, and the same goes for BF3 when you unlock it. If you don't verify that the item you bought is "on" then I cannot fault the devs for not flashing your screen with a 100 font message saying "EQUIP YOUR STUFF SOLDIER"
I'm trying not to pick a side from those arguing about if this game gives an edge to those who pay money or play a lot more, and those who say everythings extremely balanced and thats not the case, but can you really say that? Those who say theres no big difference must be playing a heck of a lot, cause I can see a big difference in weapons between greenhorns and vets with lots of certs. It's not going to be a case where the player who plays a lot or pays wins by default, but it will give them a noticeable advantage in most cases. A player with maxed out armor certs, and maxed out weapon certs has a huge advantage over the guy who's just logged in. To say its minor to insignificant is just wrong IMO.
But most of the issues are easy to miss/ignore when people are actually sticking together, playing in actual squads and executing good teamwork, which is what this game excels at. It's when everyone gets spread thin and battles are isolated and between a handful of people where such issues can jump out at you and slap you in the face.
Tried to give my 2 cents on a few things discussed as of late in the thread. Just my 2 cents.
