I would be playing more Warhawk, but ever since I got my slim 2+ years ago........the game lags for a split second every few seconds and its way too annoying to be playable. I can see the HD indicator light up at the same time....I'd guess disk speed, but why wouldnt other have this issue. I've search everywhere for an answer, but cant find anyone with the same problem.
So SH for me.
But yea, Swift's 1st post sums up my feelings. Similat to how I always said a Flag Capture should be worth WAY more XP...maybe people would actually go for it. Might have stopped them from changing the rules.
I said this before, only really good pilots prefer Warhawk. Flight may be better, but the ground game in WH is terrible. They run like their marching, they look cartoonish, and it has more noob aim that Starhawk. I don't know what ground player likes WH better.
I'm back playing warhawk and yes the air game is much better, but it really has nothing to do with hover. hovering leaves you super vulnerable to other hawks, so if you do hover it has to be quick. I hear what you're saying about the ground game, it's pretty simplistic and no doubt dated. that being said it's a lot of fun, everything on the ground is balanced and deathmatch servers can get crazy fun. I'd give it another try, learning curve is huge, because people have been playing it so long. if anybody is interested in playing I'd be happy to set up a non ranked room and show you the ropes.
That's one thing the Hawk Haters never understood, and something the A2G Hawk Jockeys (as opposed to actual pilots) never understood.
Hovering gets you killed, Hovering makes a Hawk killable. All it takes is someone that knows what they're doing with a flak turret to mow down Hawk after Hawk.
A2A or single troop TOWs are a time honored way to say: WELCOME TO WARHAWK, OHHEI, or EFF YOU!. Good for all occassions, and acceptable to be administered to friend or foe at any given time in a round.
A2A Tow's always give me that warm and fuzzy feeling.
I almost exclusively used the tow a2a in warhawk, best kills ever!
