Pods are great but if your a terrible pilot cause you can only spawn a fighter once every 20 minutes it kinda defeats the purpose of spending almost 2,000 certs to get all that gear.

What you're talking about is hundreds and thousands of cert points into the game. I'm talking about where your first hundred go. You're going to want IRNV before putting more than 50 points into anything else. I know the pods are more than 100 (they're 700 or 1000 I believe), but I just spent the $7-10 to get them right off the bat because they're crucial to being an effective pilot in the game. You can get kills with the default gun, but you're severely gimped if that's all you use.

I laugh at the A2A missle pilots. If you have one point in flares and have any skill as a pilot, those A2A missles are borderline useless. They may get kills every now and then, but you're far better off and will get far more done with a machine gun and pods.

edit: And I completely know what you're talking about with respawn rates and idiot pilots. That's why I made this thread on the official forums earlier today.

Well yes, if you go the paid route then the IRNV is a good purchase right off the bat. I was more explaining it for those who would go the full cert grind route. If you go the $$ route you can rack up "atleast" 50 certs in a single scyth life if you don't get to far ahead of yourself and follow a runner into hostile air space..lol I'd personally avoid the thermals, I thought they were awesome till I bought the IRNV a while back..lol Wish I didn't waste my certs on zoom and thermals.

What upset me though with the last patch is that they reduced the pods damage to sunderers. Those things could already take a beating if they had the armor kit. Now you gotta fire off nearly all your rounds to kill one..lol Hopefully they will allow us to tweak the weapon more down the road. More damage/slower ROF, more damaged/slower shell speed. Something to bring it back into balance for us..lol

Sunderers are pretty much impossible to take down solo with someone chain repairing. You can take the engineer out first, but you still have to throw two more volleys of pods and machine gun to take it down after that. That engineer or others will definitely respawn and start repairing by that point. Sunderers are definitely further down on my kill priority list since the patch. I'll gladly go after a tank way before I go after a sunderer. I can take a tank down in one pass - sunderer.. not so much, unless they're already greatly wounded. A tank will go down in one pod volley if every missle hits. If not, the machine gun will finish that last little bit.

The infantry are definitely getting smarter though. I've seen more flak maxes this past day than I've ever seen before. One is bad enough, but I've seen 3 or 4 holding points lately. Might as well label that a no-fly zone unless there is a fair amount of elevation change so you can sneak in some kills under their noses. Even then it usually isn't worth the trouble.

As much as I don't like the changes, I do feel the pods are more balanced now. I still find the difference between tank and sunderer armor to be crazy, and the amount of damage some of these infantry take is just entirely unbelievable. I still make due despite those things however. It has cut my KDR by at least 10-20% though.

Well no wonder we're getting our bums violated.. VS is only 9% of the population in Indar on Waterson. Time to switch continents.

Ouch! That sounds like Amerish on "briggs" the NC just love to hold that for the discount on aircraft..lol But they can't earn crap because most of the time they all run to that empty continent and leave indar and eshimir..lol

I like a nice balance. I don't like being 60% or 10%. Both aren't very fruitful play experiences. I just look for where we at least have a third of the map and a third of the population. There's hardly a point to playing the other ones.

edit: It just occurred to me. Isn't it a bit ironic that the side of the hover elevator that's working against gravity is literally twice as fast than the side working with it?

It's nitpicky, but I just find it odd.

NC usually own both Amerish and Esamir (Notice how there is no H... Seriously, it's not just you, everyone pronounces it Esh-mir, and that's wrong... After days of this, it gets annoying.) during the evening on Mattherson. But we never get anywhere at all on Indar, and we trade Esamir with Vanu often enough.

Ya know, I never took much thought on that, but your right! Ha, that is interesting. I suppose its so folks don't slowly climb up and get picked off by every sniper..lol

I've got a reputation to uphold on mispronouncing names. So I'm gonna stick with tradition and keep adding a H whistle.gif plus, I hate people who go out of their way to correct someone on stupid s&*%. So do yourself a favor..And just ignore people's errors, cause guess what...We don't care already!

That's fine for you, but when I pronounce it right (or at least more right), and I'm told I'm wrong by someone who adds a letter to the name? No, then it's too far. (This has actually happened, repeatedly... partly people who follow this thread)

Good job being a jerk about it though, it's good to know there are people out there who like to spread false information just to annoy someone. rolleyes.gif Or you could, you know, grow up, realize that I specifically mentioned it wasn't just you, correct your mistake, and move on.
