Here is how you kill gunships. Take the baseline scout, upgrade the lasers, use the engine refill, barrel roll, sab probes, damping. You are invisible outside of 15km range to gunships since they all stack damping too. You close the 15km in 2s with a barrel roll and a bit of boost. You lock a sab probe and wait, most gunships blow their engine ability. If they wait too, close to <1000m and release. The hit can't be avoided from that close. If you can't finish a gunship with its steering and engines disabled you're a bad. Problem solved.

I'de rather lose a real fight than win via premade.

Why would you take booster recharge? Use EMP with Shield to engine converter for shield component. Works way better.
StoE > booster recharge.

Sign the petition for a more accurate description of this game mode.

Thank You

Gunships are so last month. You are supposed to be complaining about bombers now. (Or didn't you get the memo?)

So what would you recommend? The above comment is hardly adding to the topic.

Out of the 4 classes, the best counter to the gunship is a gunship.
The best counter to a scout, is a gunship.
The best counter to a bomber, is a gunship,
The best counter for a strike fighter, is a gunship.

As you can see, gunships have an edge.

Umm, no. Pike/Imp mirror is the best counter to every ship. It's hardly the games fault you can't fly for ****. It ain't the fastest way to kill, but it sure as hell is the most versatile with the most staying power if played right with the right components.

What's so difficult with using a barrel roll to counter act the barrel rolling gunship?

Logic? On this forum? PREPOSTEROUS!

You can use barrel roll to close the gap between you and the gs near instantly OR you can use it to go after them.

The fact that you can counteract every other class with a variety of engine components but to counteract a gunship you absolutely must have barrel roll.
