Just something everyone can use to level that playing field.
Seconded - I've been campaigning for this for a long time. This should have been in game from the very start for use in all group missions PvP & PvE alike imo.

If more people paid attention to what their team is doing instead of going for the highest kill count they'd win more.
Y. People want to do solo kills, prove they are good, whatever. I know, it is fun. but that doesn't win you the game.

There isn't more perfect satellte taking then with scout and 2 strikers rushing to it, while gunship softens the target from distance.

not when they see the numbers of people playing and how many no longer play, more and more people will get turned off of bioware pvp balance, just like it happened with the ground pvp on like 3 different patches starting with 1.2

then no ones laughing and we all lose

I think it is balanced pretty well actually. You have the snipers that can be easy targets for scouts but do a lot of damage if unchecked, the fighters that can take a beating but can still be outmaneuvered, and the scouts may have speed and agility but can be one-shotted by a single good missile or railgun shot. Everything has it's equal strong point and weak point. You just have to be good enough to know how to play. Problem is, I see too many people doing absolutely stupid things. Gunships camping and not paying attention to the radar, then not even moving when I start shooting at them. Fighters and scouts tunneling in on their target and ignoring me shooting from behind. The only imbalance right now is sheer stupidity and lack of situational awareness on the part of the people who die because of their own ignorance then come rage on the forums saying everything is OP. People try to dogfight in a gunship or they try to park and camp a spot in a fighter thinking they are a gunship.

I fly a scout almost exclusively and I thought theyre a little op, but then it turns out I was just fighting noobs. You get a few bad teams and think youre a god then you run into a good team and get shown youre really not that op.

most good players vs an inexperienced player 1v1, the good player is going to seem very op.

But I am getting a kick out of the op!! theads for every class and almost ever ship out.

Yep. Apparently, I lost = whoever beat me must be overpowered. If people aren't willing to put more than 1 day into learning how to play and improving, then they are no loss from the GSF queue.

"Dominate" is an broad and gross understamement here.

That's the only real form of imba I have seen in GSF.

And if that's combined with faction inbalance ... Then "good night" ...

Oh, I usually do get a few kills that way. It's mostly other Gunships, though ...
