Yeah, that was not the map to use it on, that's for sure.
Edit- the jets are so infuriating to me. I just do not understand how some players can locate me, get behind in a couple of seconds, and then kill me all within a matter of seconds, with me being 100% and flying as erratic as I can in the opposite direction he was initially going. I am completely baffled. I can't stay in the air longer than a minute most of the time. I just simply do not understand how they are getting these long bursts on me, and I can just never, ever get a damn shot on them. Really pisses me off. It's the only thing in this game I feel clueless about. And apparently I am. As hard as I am turning, I am basically shocked that they are getting these long bursts on me time and time again. It's basically pointless to even try and practice, as jet freaks are many and out of control.
And to top it off, jets are insta spawn vehicles. They are always there. Why would Dice do that? Why would trolls be allowed to rule the skies, spawncamping whenever they feel like it without fear of losing their vehicle?
I am baffled by the instant spawning of the jets as well. But I'm also shocked that these apparently good pilots that are everywhere, are lightyears better than me at jets, to the point that there is nothing I can do but bail...and half the time I can't even do that.
I thought I could work on my skills, but honestly , I don't think it is possible. A lot of these guys are just too good, and there is always a jet of their choice if they want to take one. I think the instant spawn of the jets ruins the game a little, and the lack of strength out of the spawn AA gun allows spawncampers to almost do whatever they want, whenever they want. A good pilot can spawn camp without any fear of losing his jet to the AA gun. On they off chance that he did manage to somehow get killed while spawncamping, he just has to hit the deploy tab as quick as he can, and he's back in the air.
