First, let me say that video was expertly done, mph. Your editing skills have improved exponentially in such a short time! Great job of matching the music up to the game and providing some really good and varied shots. Well done.
Secondly, I'd like to congratualte you on getting your TVM skills up. Looks like you've mastered the flight path, anticipating the trajectory and speed very well. I know that air targets can be very hard to hit.
That said, I think that DICE has performed the singularly most assinine thing ever in allowing the TVM to obliterate (or even damage) the AA gun. To me, the AA should be untouchable. It should have a 300% buff to its main guns and they should have also had the "alternate weapon" be AA missles rather than the craptacular zoom function.
Why? Because the AA gun is the last bastion of hope for deterring spawnraping by air vehicles. Sitting in the AA gun is a painfully boring and thankless job. On the majority of the maps, your field of view is only that of your own camp and you're unable to affect anything beyond that. To allow the chopper to destroy the AA gun, PARTICULARLY OUT OF LINE OF SIGHT
is so far beyond absurd that words can't capture the disdain that people should be feeling.
I ask this: Would it be "sweet" if the AA gun were equipped with a TVM? That one could sit back in the base and shoot down choppers and everything else from halfway across the map and out of line of sight? Would that be fair? Balanced?
Again, I have no issue with the TVM in itself
after seeing how difficult is can be to maneuver and perfect. But to allow the chopper to have yet another weapon in its ridiculous arsenal that can now wipe out the last defense against it so incredibly easily is bulls#!t.
Looking forward to watching more vids from you, mph. It will be interesting to see your editing skill develop and evolve over even more time. Pretty soon, you'll be rivaling GamerBros! (The vids that Zath usually posts.)EDIT:
Also, let me make this perfectly clear: This is not a slam against MPH in any way, shape, or form. He's simply using one of the weapons within the context of what the game allows. It is the fact that the game allows it
that I take issue with, not the user, whomever it may be.
