Support your team rather than hunting down enemies, trust me, your team will be grateful, the chances of winning are increased, and you will get avenger and savior kills

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding but if I'm in a fighter hunting down enemy bombers then I am supporting my team. 

    I'm looking forward to having a good wingman in a week or so :)

    Yeah, if I'm flying a bomber trying to help out my team by bombing capture points and places where enemies are spotted...then I need a good second pilot in a fighter to keep the enemy AAs and planes off me. So you kinda need one of each.

    It should be lots of fun. Hopefully I'll be on my game by then. Been a bit hit and miss recently.

    Pilots are so underappreciated both bombers and fighters. Bombers help a lot but they are sitting ducks. Props to any bomber pilot for sticking with it even though there's not much you can do defensively except to rely on your wingman. And props to all the fighters for keeping the skies clear and help what you can with your 5hitty air-ground weapons.

    And they still keep nerfing our planes. We deserve better.

    I would if my team would mark the target for me. But since nobody does that, I spot targets for myself.
    And this too. It's so much easier to help when those snipers actually do something on their hill with their spotting scopes.

    That’s why I try to play scout when I can, with that flare up I can try to help pilots identify where the enemy is so you can clear the area.

    I was about to say exactly that, as a pilot I am more than happy to delete any enemies that the team flare spots for me.

    We should do a bit of flying in test range and see how we gel and we can take turns farming kills with the bombers too. It'll be great.

    That'd be a good idea 👍

    I will once again use this opportunity to point out that even a fighter can lend you a hand on the ground if you spot or squad 3D mark for them

    I suck at flying, but when I do I take a fighter lane with spotting flare

    The spotting flares can really help the people bellow if you become good enough at aiming them at the desired places.

    Most players just fly around killing random enemies rather than supporting the team

    Spotting is like repairing, there's almost no point to it for the player, spent whole games spotting and repairing i played one game between 2 tanks repairing non-stop the whole game on breakthrough, finished those games close to the bottom.

    This is the problem with BF community. All they see is their score at the end of the round. The truth is, you can sit at one flag whole game, defend it and spot all game and be last and you were still very very useful. Even more than that sniper who went 20-0 and had no objective score.

    Contrary when I am spotting a lot I finish close to the top.
    Parking at an ammo station near enemies and spamming flares  from there is both good for points and makes your team really happy.

    I think that the spotting flares are better than the small bombs on the fighters. Just drop them on the objectives that your team is trying to take and you get quite nice amount of points for assists and such.
