    Trash players rejoice your tears will now refuel attack plane pilots.

    By nerfing TF doesn't mean the AP should be buffed.

    Still way too long.

    Too little changes to vehiclebalance, too late.

    It's like DICE stopped caring.

    I'm on the ground more than I fly. I get killed maybe once a round by a TF. And so really the nerf won't change the game experience from the ground for me.

    But from the air I won't get as many kills with the TF and so I wouldn't doubt if I find a different fav plane to fly. Attack plane is a pretty good killer and so I expect I will fly that one even more. Bomber can be too.

    Did 100 service stars with TF and attack plane. AP took about 2/3rd of the time to get there. It's better at farming infantry, the tears will flow.

    I'm not saying it will get buffed, I'm saying once one plane gets nerfed another rises from the ashes.

    But the attack plane is much worse at dogfighting than the trench fighter. If an attack plane is being too bothersome, any player can hop in a fighter and take them on. As long as you don't completely suck at flying you can shoot them down, unlike the current situation where the only real counter to an expert trench fighter pilot is another expert pilot

    The exception to this is if the attack plane has a descent gunner.

    People saying they rarely died from it must not play operations much.

    except the AP has a rear gun. Don't think "any player" will be able to hop into a fighter and take out the AP.

    Trench fighter didn't need a nerf but AA is certainly trash at the moment. Hopefully the buff to AA will make them more effective at point defence.

    No not a patch...I finally got battlefield 1 installed! Now I run the risk of my xbox just dumping it all over again.

    But at least balance is balance? Maybe? I dunno

    God, those guys that know how to stale the plane before they switch seats and laser you, are the worst.

    And that's fine. Even tho they're more potent against ground targets, they are also easier to hit AS a ground target.

    I'm not afraid to go toe to toe with an Attack Plane with my Scout rifle. In the immortal words of the internet "Come at me bros"

    See if I can make him think twice about his repeated passes over and over. Not so easy to make the turn for another run when your engine is disabled...

    Shouldn't you have posted your MAA video by now?

    Players that chose the TF may decided to go BK and chase Bombers.

    Perhaps the tears will be Bomber crews or are we admitting that the super leet, mad skillzzz flyers just use the easiest thing to farm infantry for personal prestige rather than directly help their team?

    Just a thought.......

    Lol... you have no idea do you, how powerful 2 man AP can be at dog fighting. It is so powerful it would probably take at least 1 bk to take on a skilled 2 man AP, and probably 2 if the AP Pilots were that good.
