Who else likes GSF less after 2.6?

I like it less because it's become about mines and gunships. Dogfighting has taken an even further backseat. It is slower moving, less exciting and cheesier tactics prevail. Why does Bioware update to make things worse all the time?

I dogfight in my minelayer.

Improve and adapt.

Glad that Stings and Flashfires are balanced instead of being easy mode nonsense.

I like it less only because there are not enough skilled people to play with on my server. I do miss pwning and carrying matches on my scout, but all 2.6 did is made GSF a team effort, and I am not against that.
Say YAY!

Definitely enjoy it less. TDM is Gunship battles, where the winning side is usually the side that has more players who have figured that out. Dominion is all about who gets 2 sats first and then sits a bomber on each one.

Gunships were always easy mode more so than scouts or strikers.

Teamwork of a Gunship team you mean.

Adapt to learning to fly a gunship.

I like it more, and I WAS a battle scout in 2.6 I like to have my strike fighter friends be more useful, as well as the slowing of gameplay that a bomber represents.

Also, I'm tired of all the bullscat about losing "dogfighting" it was never supposed to be about dogfighting, and if you thought it was, then what the hell do you think gunships exist for? or for that matter, lock on missiles?

i for one find since 2.6 if anything its better to me. and seems alot more people interested, see fighters being used more, no longer just teams of scouts everywhere with odd gunship now seems all ship classes being used on the whole.
