It's good to be back after a few months in the barn.....Did I miss much? Forums look pretty dead.
Anyway; tothe point: The muromets epidemic on BF1 is now out of control. The defacto standard now in conquest on maps such as empires edge (C&D), soissons (B C and D), Sinai (C, D, E) etc is a constant stream of bombers slamming the key flags and making life on the ground an absolute misery.
Who actually enjoys this? It strikes me that the ONLY guy having fun is the guy in the bomber. I literally know noone the likes this.
Unlike other planes that need a small amount of skill to fly, the bomber press x for success.
'Oh', I hear you say, 'but why don't you grab some LMG's and take them out?' Well the reason is that the scrub pilots have now learnt that if you fly high enough, you are basically immune to AA fire and or LMG fire as the LMG's cannot aim high enough. The other day, my squad spent an entire game with LMGs trying to take 2 guys out on a map and we managed to take out 4 r 5 in 20 mins. Our gameplay experience was frustrating as hell; Who wants to spend and entire game shooting in the air, and getting sniped constantly as your tracer fire gives away your postion? Jump on the AA, Nope, sniped off them in an instant.
I love planes in BF1. Happy to be wrecked by strafing fighters etc that earned the kill. But the bomber? Like giving both teams a behemoth cannon for the noobs to pad their K/D's. It's a joke. The introduction of these bombers was the single worst gameplay feature introduced in the entire game lifecycle, and I include TTK2.
