Why do people hate jets?

Recommended Posts

fear_the_nut70

 

Back to on topic... I don't hate jets themselves, or why would I own one and fly it from time to time?

 

What I hate about jets is being forced into playing the way the jet pilot wants to play. You can't do anything besides take cover (in various ways including passive mode) or fight back. What happens when you don't want to play fighty-fighty-wars with 12-y-o kids in jets, but are forced into doing so? I hate that.

Yet very few people here seem to understand that. We know the solutions to (not) dealing with jets, but what Jenkiiii here said and I have also said a bunch of times is just true. If jets didn't have those explosive rounds it would be VERY different.

 

 

And what few people on here get is that this exact thing happens in other arenas in the game. I shouldn't have to go into passive mode to just drive my car around or go buy clothes or vests because bullet proof helmet wearing c4 Kuruma driver will kill me on the spot. The vast majority of people who complain about Jet people want to engage in ground warfare and dont' want to bother with jet guy who plays the game differently. Oh well, this is what GTA has been from the inception--an urban warfare game of escalating weapons with various strengths. I dont' want to deal with tank guy or armed insurgent guy, but too bad.

GTA , and talking of all the series,is the ultimate freeroam game, so it means everyone should be able to able to choose their playing style, whether is about airborne, racing, or street crimes, and play it in the funniest way possible. If people(gtaforums dudes, who don't even represent the majority of GTA community), want to remove the explosive cannon of the jets, so it becomes a peashooter similar to that of the buzzard ones which can't hit a single target,(a feature that can be forgiven on it, given that its a tactical helicopter and attacking is not it's main purpose, but cannot be forgiven on jets, which are single pilot vehicles and and are known to be the deadliest weapons that a nation can count on), then they should know that players wouldn't appreciate such a nerf, and it wouldn't be right for those who are into airborne and like it, and don't necessarily grief other players, but try to learn new stunts and,or have fun destroying police vehicles.

I don't have a problem with the firepower of jets, but I think they should move faster (like 25% faster) so that it better mimics a real life jet in speed and so that the accuracy would go down, which would be a win/win for jet users and people trying to get away from jets.

in it current state the jets arent that fast and people bitch about they being too fast for the homing launcher, imagine making the jet faster, would render the homing launcher even more useless...

 

i wont mind more speed on the jet, it would make strafing interesting.

There are only 3 ways i die in pvp anymore.

 

spam cannons that im not prepared for (otherwise i passive and walk away)

 

rpg spammers (see above)

 

and jets.

 

every single time i come across a jet, i die.

 

they do an 80 degree dive, gun me down, i spawn back in ready to do "something" about it. they are already lining up to do an 80 degree swoop again. im dead 4 or 5 times before i even have a chance to think of anything.

 

 

if i had my way. the hydra would be removed from the game, and those who bought it would be given 3m gta$ for a refund.

also "cops turn a blind eye" would prevent you from getting a wanted level, but not from soldiers shooting at you in the military base.

 

as they are: fvck....jets... seriously. its like my last pet peeve in gta.

That wouldn't solve your problems, simply cause good pilots use the Lazer, not the Hydra. Also, are you really complaining about blind eye? lol

the jets are tools,like roof tops and subways. I don't like them but they are part of the game. Lets face it most people dislike when you kill them while having some kind of advantage. If your in a tank someone calls you out..... if your in the subway they call you out........its free-mode so your free to do what you want and if you go to the store while the lobby is full, more than likely your going to get killed. But i don't mind trash talking jet players most of them fly around killing people but if they crash or get killed right to passive mode until they into another jet. (head games are alloud) the last thing i am going to say about this, there are no rules in free mode so are they wrong? NOPE

Here's an example of why people hate jets:

 

Yesterday I was set to retrieve the Tornado Mariachi from its spawn location. I jumped on a chopper and headed to the mountain next to the altruist colony, overlooking the ledge where the car spawns. I set the chopper down, got off, equipped the heavy sniper and waited for 19:00. The Mariachi appeared on the clock. I sniped both Thelma and Louise, called Lester to get the cops off of me, and proceeded to "get in the chopper" (I know you're doing the Arnold voice right now! lol) to go retrieve the car. While I was busy doing all this, a guy on a jet had approached and was waiting for me to get in the helicopter. He blew me out of the sky as soon as I was airborne. Nice job, troll! I guess it was my fault for doing this in a full lobby. After swearing to the a-hole a couple of times in chat, I changed sessions and, fortunately for me, landed on an almost empty session. I was able to get the car on my next attempt.

 

I don't know, but he had to be extremely bored of this game to go through all the trouble of hopping on a jet and follow another player across the map to a secluded area where no one else was just to kill him. Is that a normal mentality for jet users? Chase down lone players and troll them from above?

 

It didn't have to be a guy in a Hydra to kill you and screw up your attempt.

simple reason; they lock onto any harmless air vehicles,fire missiles,exploding machine gun to any players on the ground and when it comes to take a revenge,they lag too f*cking much,it is nearly impossible to take them down.Simply the most overpowered weapon/vehicle in the game.That's why I hate jets
