Not sure what to think, depends on the circumstances. If the lockon takes as long as with a hawk, sidewinders will have to use terrain to get away, but that will not be a difficult task from how dumb and slow M.A.W. rockets are. I'm assuming a dismount will break the lock, so a camper could only lock on before or after the flag is taken, not while it happens, and a desperate sidewinder could bail as a last attempt at survival. Damage cannot be changed, that would break the sidewinder beyond tweaking. When you chase a flag runner, you can actually kill him, without needing a second player to be a razorback gunner; just get a sidewinder of your own and tail him until you get a clear shot. It seems the lock on won't break anything, just ask for flag runners to have skill and cunning.
Remember, it's all speculation until the patch comes out, and then it will be all opinions.
I ike razorbacks, they made it through all that hawk abuse in beta CTF and could go back again and again.
also incase it hasn`t beed mentioned hers how it works.
when you get locked on by a rocket you must bail or use obsticles to avoid the shot.
truthfully I`ve chased SW in Basin and shot my RPG or used mines and havn`t had much issues, true sometimes they get away (like pheonix on CTF Basin last wensday) but becuse of this, open style maps won`t be as famous on CTF inless theres less hawks and guys able to team up in RBs
