Why do people hate jets?

Recommended Posts

FallenWarrior60

They say it is a P**** tactic, while they are on the ground spamming RPG's and Mini-Guns? Is that more manly and legit?

People dont hate jets, they hate the players who exploit the game mechanics to get repeated cheap kills. Like on one of those beat em up games when theres a particular move that instantly knocks your player down without you being able to defend against it properly and doesnt give you time to get back up before they repeat the move. Cheap tactics by cheap people. The sort of people who played Goldenye 64 and always chose Oddjob as their character. Those types. The type who people introduce as 'abit of a character'. C*nts basically.

It's opinion based really, but mainly it's because:

 

- How readily available they are.

- Some people just don't put in the effort to avoid them.

- Some people don't like jets anyway, thus hate on users.

 

So no, it's not much different from RPG & Mini-gun spammers.

Trollers & Griefers of both abuse passive mode & take every advantage they can, thus why people hate them in combination

 

While the players may change, the tool stays the same.

Thus it's easy to hate on the equipment.

Jets are frustrating to some people cause they are hard to counterattack when the pilot is skilled. One can only go passive really.

They are not frustrating, just annoying to have to get in cover, get out the car and take the bastards out every couple of minutes

Or those who chose Ryu in Street Fighter, or Sub Zero in Mortal Kombat, or those who choose Slark in DoTA or Night Elves in Warcraft 3.

 

Neh, the last one not really.

If by "P****" you mean:
• players who love to harass an entire lobby of people
• players who get killed far too often by both higher and lower levels, it's their only recourse
• players who enjoy disrupting other players fun and then running off knowing they can't be challenged
• players who know that there's little ability for others to engage them

• players who still wear pull ups

• players who post threads asking obvious questions, fishing for replies
• players who don't know the difference between a Combat pistol and a AP Pistol
• players who have no money, but want to feel powerful

• players who have no skill, but want to feel powerful
• players who have no interest in friendly gameplay
and my favorite...

• players who, when they crash their jet and respawn, immediately hide in their apartment or leave the session.

If that's what you meant by "P****" then, um, yeah.

Yea but is it any more annoying than 4 players in a insurgent or kuruma killing everyone in the lobby.

 

Players are gonna grief no matter what. The difference is anyone can get in a kuruma with their friends and grief a lobby with their auto aim ap pistols.

Not every player can successfully handle a lobby in a jet. So naturally players will say its not fair.

 

Its like giving a quarter of players a new super car that the other 3 quarters cant play with.

As much as some will say flying a jet takes no skills based on my experiences I have to disagree.

So yall would hate to see me. 30 K/D in a jet. I could kill everyone on the ground but I dont feel like fighting double teams and RPG spammers, and Kuruma guys. If you want to kill me take me out in a jet or waste homing launchers, maybe by the 1000th launch youll get me lol.

The jets are innocent. It's the sad cases that hide in them that are the problem.

You don't need to be a skilled pilot to avoid the utterly pointless and ineffective homing launcher.

Actually the most fun is pelting jet griefers with just a few Heavy Sniper rounds.

 

1 of 3 things happens:

 

- They get frustrated as to why their jet engine is shutting down, struggle to keep it airborne & crash.

- They bail, enter passive & run to get another, which can be intercepted.

- They leave when they realize some people know there are other ways than wasting thousands of dollars on HL ammo to take down a jet.

 

That's why I always step in when there is a jet griefer in a lobby of level 89s or lower.

That Heavy Sniper is fun as f*ck.

You guys that hate jets so much should take advice from this guy. He seems to hate jets too lol But hes not complaining or crying how they should be nerfed. Hes doing something about it.

Yes RPG and Miniguns are annoying. But the jet cannons are literally a combination of Minigun rate of fire and explosives. Now, add that to passive mode and being in a flying ultra-rapid and maneuverable machine that can dodge missiles and is impervious to a lot of ground threats.

 

I'll let you do the maths.

They recently did a study at Oxford University that proved once and for all beyond a shadow of a doubt that people who hide in jets and grief players from the air and then change session as soon as another jet appears, are far more likely to have a tiny penis than everybody else.

I love when people use the heavy sniper against me it poses a challenge. I try not to bully low levels though sometimes when 5 of em get in a truck I have to blow them up once.

It's not impervious to any ground threat.

Any weapon can damage a jet, especially when it flies close enough to use it's cannons.

The midsection of the Mile High Construction site is perfect for countering jets.

Granted you have to fly there, but there are plenty of spots to poke out & fire from any direction.

The netting around that whole level also somehow protects you even from jet cannons.
