haven't really played with italy much when the game came out but I did see a few people that were above him on the ground in the late beta, don't remember their names tho. Far as pilots I I'd have to say prime & myself. He's the only pilot which I have played that we could go a whole round at it and not kill eachother more than maybe once or twice lol. I could kill him and all the other vets for that matter better in WH but SH is more about smarts.
On another topic we have had talks with prime and we agree the game does still suck big time. And I don't think there's much challenge for most vets far as flight goes.
but for instance peoplee like koinwolf I haven't played with tho and probably many others that don't play the same time as me, just going with my experience.
TopKilla IS Starhawk, for real. The kid can do it all like Koing. He is no one-trick pony. He plays all aspects of the game and does things nobody else thinks of. He is very frustrating to play against. He is no auto-aim jetpack noob or spinning engine mod abuser. The top players in this game need to be able to do more than one thing otherwise you need subcategories like Nando's Warhawk Weapon Legends.
