I believe the world has spoken, the hawk name brings along with it too much problems.
The next game should be called Rift Lord and be more about the RTS elements and ground combat. They could have some air vehicles but nothing super duper OP. I suggest splitting the current Starhawk hawk into about 4 variations from jet fighter, to bomber to two inbetween which can transform into a heavy and light mech.
Then along side that make a "Hawk" game, it would have no ground vehicles or troops, just pure hawk on hawk action, then they could add every possible variation on flight (From Warhawk/Starhawk and beyond) and the pure pilots would have a game for them, if flight is really all they care about.
I bet the pure hawk game fails worse then Starhawk because I believe it is the imbalance between air and ground most pilots like. They want lots of easy kills on helpless players to pad huge KDR's. Its why the "Pilots" in Starhawk spam the CTF matches with clusters and torps IMHO. If they were truely interested in flight alone they would stick to the dogfight loadouts.
Actually forget all this where is SWBF3?
