Newfriends and helicopters (warning:rant)

So lately, I noticed that a lot of new people joined the BF3 experience. This might be because of the price cut, but I'm not sure. I don't mind new people, since they'll keep the game alive, but some of them really piss me off. In literally every game I joined yesterday (~12), a non colonel soldier tried his utter best to get into the pilot seat. I don't mind gunning, so I stay in the helo. But then we have several posibilities. Either the pilot crashes in his base, he doesn't use countermessures, he crashes when firinf rocket pods, flips upside down by random or goes to the sky ceiling to use heatseekers on jets. The worst thing that happened yesterday was that I was flying, and a noob spawned on the gunner seat. I got disabled after a while by a jet, so I quickly landed on the ground to repair the helicopter. I hop back into the thing and mr noobynoob thought it was a smart idea to be a pilot, so I got the gunner seat. He took off and crashed 3 seconds later, killing us both. What's the matter with these people? Why don't they practise on empty servers (That's what I did) or play Fire from the sky coop? They are really wasting an important vehicle to take out the PTFO'ing enemy...

Sorry for this rant btw..

Hahaha, i feel you man. I actually have a unwritten rule that says "dont spawn on squadmates in helicopters if you dont know them" because i probably die more often when i do that than i get kills from it.
I am part of that power which would the evil ever do and ever does the good.

hear hear. Dice should introduce a tutorial which you have to do before you can fly helicopters, they might also give us some tips such as "flying high in the sky trying to kill jets with heatseekers is a bad idea."
Personally, i don't take a stance on whether or not there is a creating entity because i'm humble enough to realize, in my fucking insignificance, the concept escapes my comprehension with a lead of 9001 light years.

I usually create my own squad and close it if I fly alone, switching to TV missile if necessary. The thing is, I am 1000 times more effecient flying alone than with a stranger. I rarely meet someone who flies at least as good as Giggles.

Thought I'd play some chopper gunner last week, spawned in on a couple of choppers and they were all so oblivious about their surroundings... Hal of them just flew straight up trying to go heat seekers on jets, not even allowing for a lucky TV missile shot so it was 100% useless, too far up so the cannon wouldn't even reach the ground... oO

The other half either looked to the wrong directions / flew straight past the enemies we had to kill, or just flew too far ahead and got us killed / randomly crashed.... Didn't get a single competent chopper pilot in ~3 rounds of 1000 ticket AK :|

This is the only time I'll wholeheartedly support LevelCap in anything. I want reserved vehicles and only allowing players who make good use of vehicles to use them. Say, start with 200+3*<rank> points and we're set.

I can't stand flying with randoms, especially in attack helicopters. Most randoms aren't even good at gunning. I don't understand it. All they have to do is point at targets and shoot. Instead I always end up with some guy who thinks guided missiles are good against tanks, and wastes all his time trying to lock onto vehicles that will just smoke off the missiles anyway, or I get someone who's along for the ride and hardly fires at all.

It's pretty sad that I can be a more effective pilot and gunner at the same time than 90% of the randoms I find.

Meh, I still use GM, mostly because I tend to selfdestruct with TVM a little too frequently for my taste. But I mainly use it against jeeps.

And it mostly ends missing because of the Jeep's speed :/

OT: Pubs suck, I'm used to it so I stick to Tanks if I get in a vehicle.
