Bombers are the smash-monkeys of GSF. Domination matches composed of nothing but bombers and gunships have already begun, and it's absolutely ruining those games. In the time it takes to clear/chase the gunships, the bombers have saturated a sat. As soon everyone turns to clearing mines, the gunships have respawned and are picking people off, followed shortly by the next human wave of bombers, which can't be stopped before they get to the sats without breaking off and ignoring the gunships, and by now the team's down people from attrition.

It's not a matter of "learn to play." BW has introduced a combat mechanic which imbalances the game far too easily for the level of skill it requires, and, unlike gunships, there are no effective counters for it. People are naturally abusing it to the extent that they are able to. I don't blame the bomber pilots, it's BW's fault. And ironically, this type of abuse only further encourages abuse of the premades that people hate getting farmed by, because mustering 8+ people in a chat is the only way to mount enough coordination to stop these tactics.
