Bombers are OP and gunships are for cowards.

Your current support nova isn't very scary without a burst dps to help you out though. Not that there's anything wrong with that- it's a team game, and locking someone down is invaluable if there's a gunship, strike, or type 2 scout anywhere close at all- but I think that the nonsense solo sting is still best at the role of Totally invincible Elite Unkillable Awesome Ninja. They just cry because they aren't the top pick for everything at all times forever.

It's mostly sting pilots who shed tears over bombers, for instance, and make threads crying about how a gunship got away instead of dying instantly like they expect everything to.

Yeah.

Edit: cut it down to the part I agree with.

I can't say I'd shed a tear if they took away ion railgun AoE, but they'd better combine it with some other effective method of clearing out massed drones and mines. EMP just isn't cutting it.

You picked them off one at a time with that 15km railgun your have. Not like drones are going to sprout engines and come after a gunship.

Cause the development team that did GSF might have played alot Command & Conquer.
I know when I see the word ion in a video game I always think of C&C.
So let me get this straight you want to add a debuff to keep people from quitting warzones, then you might as well get ready for insults at you and others on the team.

If it was that simple, bombers wouldn't be anywhere near as good at satelite defence as they are right now.

They really aren't, there's just many bad people that play pac-man with mines.
