From taking out 5/6 planes during a game to now the AA wont even get a hit marker on a slow bomber right in front of me.

    OK must be just me. By the way do you work for Dice?

    I don't. There just hasn't been a patch since December.

    Sometimes it's really hard to hit a bomber.... sometimes i think "Why am I not getting hit?"
    It looks like the AA shell explodes before getting close enough to bomber, even in operating range. IDK why maybe I just suck.

    I was hoping someone would comment "get good" just so I could like that comment instead of writing it myself.

    I've only got 1 arm so it's pretty difficult to git gud.

    If you've been able to get 6 kills with the AA during a game before, you can do it again. It has not been nerfed, stop trying to get it buffed.

    Accident? I'm really sorry. And I wasn't saying git gud to you, as you can see in my prior post.

    OP, it's funny I was just thinking the same thing working on a medal earlier. I'm usually pretty quick to take down planes, but today I wounded twice as many as I killed.

    Maybe pilots are just getting smarter.

    Not trying to get it buffed I asked a simple question!

    I was playing a game with the AA truck and it definitely wasn't hitting as hard.

    Something is different. Stealth Nerf?

    So hard to aim for you?

    Yep I've noticed this for quite a while when I started using the AA.
    You need to adjust your lead differently when firing at bombers. Lead your shots more in front than you would when aiming at fighters and attack planes. That usually works well for me. Then I adjust my aim based on the hits I'm getting (i.e. more lead or less lead). It also varies with the height they're at but generally aim more in front than you would normally.
    .
    Next time you encounter a bomber while you're on the AA, aim about half as much in front of it as you normally would then reduce your lead until you get a hit. Then take note of where that was and how high the bomber was and use that as your aiming reference. Also make sure you are only firing on the aircraft when they are well within your airspace so they have less time to react, turn and run. That way you get good hits on them when they're inside your AA zone AND as they're trying to run.
    .
    Lastly make sure you control your firing. Don't just hold down the trigger. Try and send up a bunch of AA then hold off to give the gun a second or two to cool down and then resume. The point is not to run the gun to maximum overheat but control your bursts so you've always got something left in the AA gun.
    .
    All the best.

    just wiped out a few planes on ballroom, felt exactly like normal.

    since we're going off anecdotal evidence here i guess AA is fine.

    Maybe you got more confidend with the AA and try to hit the planes to soon?
    But there is something off with the hit detection and the bombers. You know they are in range and that you lead your shots right but no hits. I only see it with bombers and it has been like this for a while.
