Thanks for the compliments fellas. Actually I've watched the video a bunch, for some reason I'm fascinated with tv missiles, lol.
Actually, yeah I think the joust that can be helicopter battles where you have tv and the other has guided missile, the advantage swings to the guided missile. But honestly I think the idea that both helicopters must fly straight at each other is kind of a weird thing. You see it all the time, and I did it for a long time. But frankly it is probably too risky. I think one should either sneak up on the chopper, or now one could fire tv missiles.
Basically, one will see the other first. Lately I like to lead them on a chase and then pop up under them or something. It puts the ball in your court. You have a game plan and you know exactly when you are going to ECM, because in the meantime you can be below radar.
Using the tv missile also allows the pilot to use something other than laser painter. I like air radar. Knowing where the other air vehicles are is nice, especially if they have good jets.
I've found the guided shell seems to take a while. But I'll use whatever, it is no big deal.
I haven't played since they were supposed to nerf the tv, so it may be pointless now, idk.
I don't know. I think the most important thing in the choppers is to find a rhythm. I really do. I think things go wrong with distractions that get you hovering. Though sometimes the temptation is too strong. But I just think that a game plan of bobbing and weaving, not stopping, coming up with a gameplan in your head and sticking to it is the best plan.
But yeah, I wish you could change out your vehicle weapons a little easier, so that you can adapt to a case by case situation a little easier.
A couple of my clips I showed my tv destroying their chopper for the first ticket loses of the match. That is absolutely one advantage that was there. You can definitely open up a match like gang busters, really helping your team set the tide right out of the gate. I hope that hasn't changed.
