The stealth jet cannons seem weaker than bf3 to me, but that may be a product of the maneuverability thing again.
Also now when you are being locked it shows you general direction on the HUD as a gray indicator. Similar to the red indicator when you are taking damage.
I noticed something really awesome in bf4 when joining on friends. If you join on a friend and their team is full it will put you on the other team. As soon as space is available on your friends team it will auto switch you. It happened to me right after I died. Not sure if it waits for you to die or if it was just coincidence.
On daybreak (map at early dawn?)I found the stealth jet good for absolutely nothing but ghosting into the objective, which I have a general objection to.
Hovering provides a fun target for RPGs, the cannons did nothing for me before I got RPG'ed.
Hovering is not possible until it "activates' while being VERY close to the ground, which is difficult on Daybreak.
The default thumbstick accel/deccel that I have accustomed to for the chopper/vehicle does not work well on jets. While trying to brake to shoot a target, it's almost impossible to not left/right slide.
I was in the game you did that. You shot me in the face, I died, then you died, then suddenly you were in our squad, so I couldn't revenge kill. Pre-order canceled.
