Aircraft need flares

Flares for aircraft(except fighter jets)  

118 members have voted

  1. 1. Do you think aircraft in this game need flares?

    • Yes
      89
    • No
      29


Recommended Posts

As the topic title says, aircraft in this game,helicopters in particolar, should have some sort of countermeasures to defend against homing missiles, such as flares.Would you like to see them added to have a better chance of defending yourself against hl spammers?

Hydra, Lazer and Besra are the only aircraft that DEFINITELY don't need flares. any aircraft slower and less maneuverable than those three can use some

Ill email rockstar sending a request to add flares with poll results if the majority of people agree about adding them.

I have bracketed "except jets" in the poll title.

i wouldn't rule out all jets. there's still the miljet, Luxor and Luxor Deluxe. they're still relatively easy targets for the homing launcher.

Crop dusters should have flares so that the game is more realistic.

okay i get you

 

but the Besra isn't a fighter jet lol. it just doesn't need flares because it's just as fast and maneuverable as the two fighters.

I say flares for jets. Targeting disabled for unarmed air vehicles. I want to fly my Shamal in peace.

So basically, this is another thread about the HL disguised as something else, with a poll..... :barf:

Told you all there'd be more ;) Anyway, it's a different solution to what the other thread was talking about though. There's no talk of removing it or nerfing it in this one.

 

On topic, everything that can't dodge the homing launcher efficiently should get flares. That means every aerial vehicle apart from the Lazer, Besra, and Hydra. Those all have methods for dodging homing missiles, and they work often enough that you can rely on them. The other aircraft though, have an unfair chance of being hit by it.

 

It would also help against jets and Buzzards that only ever chase after unarmed helicopters and planes.

 

They should have had flares from the start in my opinion.

Seriously you should read before commenting sh*t.Its not a thread about the homing launcher, its about adding a new feature for aircrafts(flares).

I would rather have ECM Jammer as a countermeasure, it'd come in handy to fly under the radar when in a dogfight. :p

I did read, and it doesn't matter if there's a poll or how the thread is titled, it's the subject matter that counts, especially since you made it. You hate the HL..period. Since the majority didn't agree with you in your last thread, you just took another angle to be able to argue your dislike for it.

 

And to be realistic, it's not necessarily what the thread is supposed to be about, it's what it will turn into. The same old never ending responses.

 

*If you need flares, then you suck at flying.

*(insert aircraft here) doesn't need flares, it just needs an armor buff.

*Aircraft don't need flares, the HL needs to be (pick one) removed, nerfed, level locked, ect.

*This isn't a war game, it's GTA.

*If you don't want to get shot down, play invite only.

*Passive mode.

All aircraft should come with them. There's no way in hell FAA wouldn't list anti-missile countermeasures as a safety requirement when your friendly neighborhood gun store sells MANPADS to every passer-by with enough cash, no question asked.

 

The jets can have a significantly longer flare cooldown to compensate for their overall power. This is the same thing BF2 did for its flare balance.

 

 

btw, the Besra is classified as "Jet" alongside with the two fighters in air races, shares the minimap icon of one and outmaneuvers the Lazer. It can be considered a jet for HL balance purposes.

doesn't Lester's "off the radar" option pretty much already act like an ECM jammer?

You should have added a "don't care" option.

At the end of the day, people can make threads about whatever they want. Unless a mod closes it, no one has a right to tell people what they can say/think/what opinions they're allowed to have.

 

The fact there are so many threads about the homing launcher and flares, armour buffs, etc. obviously points to there being a balance problem anyway. Expect more of these threads to come.

Why i shouldnt be able to fly low with any aircraft (armed or not armed) before anyone gets a lock onto me even if im doing my own business?The same logic as those who requested the homing launcher"why do i have to care about a BUZZARD spawnkilling me even if it has a HUGE COCKPIT, challenging aiming and can be taken out by a minigun very easily"?The only difference between then and now is that the buzzard pilot would miss you nearly every time (not being a big problem), and we all know that it is not like that with the hl which has a HUGE lock on range and very fast and smart missiles.So we passed from aircraft griefing to aircraft being griefed, because the majority of randoms dont care which vehicle you are using and just shoot you down.Congratulations, you are now able to grief with the new griefing weapon R added for the purpose of "defending" from air griefers altough it can lock on to any vehicle.R added the hl to counter griefing aircrafts, now i think they should also give aircrafts a new weapon (flares) to counter "ground player spamming homing rockets" griefing.

Are you and skadowkill f*cking or something? You two can't stop licking each other's asses on here.

 

No, see, "don't care" would give you a complete poll that would encompass all board members and their possible opinions (which you guys don't want...you want everyone to agree with you).

 

As for the same threads popping up over and over, it's either the same dozen suspects on here who continually start these threads or people who signed up within a week and are under level 30. It's not exactly great company to be in.

See what I have to put up with? The last thread ended with your side insulting the other too, lets just discuss this like adults instead of throwing names.

 

If you don't care, don't vote, simple as that. Why are you even on here if you don't care? God, some people.

When soliciting opinions on a public forum, you might just get some feedback that doesn't make you happy. So sorry I occasionally interrupt the flow of tears with logic.

 

"What you have to put up with" lol...you replied to a post not directed at you. You asked for it.

1 - Didn't call you gay.

2 - Being called gay is an insult? Homophobe.

3 - I don't know if either of you has a dick, but neither has any balls.

4 - Oooooooh, mother insults...how schoolyard.

Really? Seems like that's directed at me. And you're not even giving feedback that disagrees with me - you're on here saying how you don't care. The poll asks for a yes or a no, to find out who wants flares, and who doesn't. If the goal was to find out if you care or not, it would simply ask you.

 

You're like some weird stalker or something. Always ending up in these threads (which you "don't care" about), and always spreading your hate as usual.

I voted yes because it'd look cool.

 

"Need a counter to the homing missile." - In what way? Seriously.

 

I guess it's fair for a Hydra or Savage to make it rain missiles upon us, while we what, stand there?

 

Get real.

 

It's more than easy to evade the homing missile's. Don't complain due to your own pilot skill's.

 

Can't deal with them, leave the area.

 

That's all pilot's seem to do is bitch on this game.
