Hawks get all these fancy weapons while the ground don't get anything good to take out hawks other than flak cannon and beam turrets anyways I was in a room that we was getting base camped with 4 hawks in the air cluster bombing our base and or they just fly straight down at you and land then they either stomp on you or they shoot a missile at you and your dead. I know you can throw grenades and shoot your rocket at them but its kind of hard when they jump in the air.
You guys need to add a new vehicle for the ground to balance the hawks out I was thinks like a vehicle like a hawk but it transforms into a vehicle instead of a flyer and you could find missles and other cool weapons like the hawk make the weapons you get for taking out flyers. You guys are worried about having the game balanced but the hawks is just too over powered. There needs to be a extra type of vehicle to take out the hawks easier cause hawks never hardly loose against a ground vehicle attack. I was wondering maybe you should add a missile cannon or what ever its called that is on co op or what ever you guys should add that to multiplayer and make it cost full rift to build it. I really think the hawks are to over powered what do you guys think.

If all this complaining keeps going on about Hawks the game will soon be called StarInfantry.

i think u should be able to drive a ice cream truck because the hawk players will land and leave their hawks to buy icecream
Then, u use the giant ice cream cone(its secretly a laser cannon) on the top of the truck to shoot the hawks
i perfect balancer aganst the evil hawks
For once, I agree with you.

The idea is same as Warhawk.
If you own the skies, you can own the game.
Because Hawk is in the name it needs much, much more weapons/abilites then any other portion of the game.
I was saying this in the beta "LBI must think the pilots are handicapped? Thats why they need extra weapons/abilites so they can compete with the real players."
LBI then agreed with me and proceeded to also give the hawks invisibilty/shields/cluster bombs/Torpedos/etc.
It is their vision of the game, the only answer is to either use the hawk as well, or team up with other pilots.
I joined a game the other day, it was me vs 2 other guys, both in hawks. Build anything they cluster bombed it and you, except of course when they had torpedos ready to fire, LOL.
Once or twice they would land 30 feet away with shields on to drop clusters/torpedos and even the odd homing missile.
I have accepted this as the way LBI intended it, and just keep trying.

I agree with one thing, there should be a vehicle that is agile enough to evade hawks (razorback works, tank does not work) but has the firepower to at least pose a threat to them (razorback does not work, tank does work). Maybe a MAW strapped Razorback would work? Or maybe a mini beam turret strapped razorback.
Not an original idea, but never stops being a good one.

I think they should just add a jump cooldown for Hawks, I think its dumb seeing a vehicle that probably weighs around a ton or more bunny hopping around dodging missiles.
