Thoughts on Air Superiority

To me, Air Superiority isn't fun AT ALL. They might as well call it Heatseeker mode because thats the only thing anyone ever uses. There are NO real dogfights.
What are your thoughts?

Gotta wait until it hits PC for some true, honest opinions from pro jetters

Sucks IMO. 12 enemy jets with no air radar.


I really hate the [ quote ] system on this forum.

sometimes you can get 3 or 4 jets in a row, then get owned 3 to 4 times the lack of air radar means that once your locked/being fired apon you cant tell which direction they are shooting it from. I'll treat it like tank superiority if i feel like getting some jet kills ill play it but it wont be something that ill be playing regularly.

What? No air radar? First I've heard. Do they lock what jet upgrades you can use?

Also, what about below radar? I never have problems with air-to-air missiles. If there's a plane behind me and I hear myself getting locked I just smile because I'm going to be behind that scrub in ten seconds or less.

...and you'll have 11 guys behind you too.

I'll never play it. I hate jets and all they stand for.

I equipped air radar for a while, and basically, couldn't see anyone.

That said, I like it.

The maps are HUGE. Think 10-15 seconds on Burner to get between flags.

Below radar still works and the terrain over which you're flying is relatively flat, so you can get down there. I played a long ticket game last night to get the flow of it, and I ended up with more gun kills than heat seeker kills. Some of the dog fights were pretty epic.

If you're not massively into dogfighting, you can skirt around the edge of the map, taking the outer flags and picking off stragglers.

I played a bit of it , it's not so much the heatseekers that annoy me , it's more the mid-air collisions , there is lot of them.

Yep. I saw a 5x IS NO MORE feed last night. All enemy team. Don't know if they were trying to fly in formation or what, but there was a big fireball.
