It's amazing how many people think that substituting a word in a game's name is some sort of witticism worthy of recognition.

GunshipStarFighter, Galactic Scout Fighter, Galactic Bomber. Most other games have the same thing, such as LRM Online or PPC Online for MWO.

Please don't... the only think that gets debased by such "witticism" is you.

As to your point, we've had gunships since the beginning of GSF, and by now we've learned well enough how to deal with them. The only time they're an issue is in TDM when they hang back near their spawn with a minefield in between, and that's more an issue with TDM permitting spawn camping than anything else. Otherwise, they're quite manageable.

Now I'm not saying there isn't still a need for some balance. Ion Railgun can still be an issue (if only because it is the most common form of CC, and CC generally sucks), but it's nowhere near as bad as the OP makes it out to be.
