When I try to play Air Superiority it keeps saying the game is no longer available. :(

Is it part of the Quick Play playlist? Or is it its own category?

Like, if I DO feel like playing just planes, can I do that? And if I don't want to, can I just do the regular gametype? Thanks for the help.

I don't understand why the Battlefield games don't implement a custom search. Am I just supposed to keep searching through Quick search in the hopes Coral Sea will pop up?

Can't believe it was unlocked so quickly! I've only contributed 12 kills to that total :D

Hopefully this coral sea will help me get a kill in a plane for the achievement where you need to get a kill in every vehicle. The plane one is the only one I'm missing.

I need to play this game more.

It is an option on the main menu called Air Superiority. Essentially what happens is both teams take off from 2 Aircraft Carriers each and it makes a huge arial battle in the middle of the map. You do NOT have the option of not flying as it says that you have left the Play Area once you bailout. The servers have been dropping like crazy so if you don't see it, it's because the servers and the leaderboards are going down left and right.

It seems that most of the time your just standing around on the carrier waiting for planes to spawn, along with a load of your team-mates so its pot luck whether you actually get to play :confused:

Thats just stupid, it should respawn planes the second they leave. Garbage

A problem I have noticed is that everyone spawns on the same ship, hardly anyone spawns on the second ship where planes are just left unused, apart from that I think it's alot of fun but I don't know how long that will last.

As said before it's in it's own menu. But the dev's said on the last Major Nelson Podcast that it would also be part of the normal map rotation.

It was my mate who was the 43,000,000 killer, what a coincedence! He got a pair of 1943 sunglasses, t shirt and something else, quite happy for him!

I enjoy it, only because I love flying and I'm really good at keeping up a chase. I usually came out on top as well so this is a big plus for me.

It's pretty fun. I like flying, so I'm digging it.

I kind of wish there was some sort of land involvement. I mean, I know the battle was a naval engagement with carriers... but they put islands down there, let us walk on them.

Good so I am not the only one has noticed it too.

But the battle at Coral Sea was pretty much strictly between planes. That's why there is no land involvement.

Pretty cool, yeah. I like flying too. I had trouble with activating the trial so I practised a lot in the tutorial.

Anyway I've played it only a few times because of the teammates who go to the AA's and start shooting at the still neutral airplanes on deck. My teammates and I were shooting at this dickhole who with bazookas and riflegrenades but he didn't get the message. You can't kill him so. Also what one of the posters above said, you respawn on one ship all the time.

Another odd thing that happened was enemies bailing out at the other ship and using the AA gun there. Which is odd because aren't you supposed to die 3 second after you jump out?

Anyone else had these problems?

You won't die if you jump out onto a carrier. Only if you jump into the water or on one of the islands.

Even when you land on an enemy carrier? wow, lame...

Anyone else hate those friggin' noobs who jump out of their plane or crash their plane into the landscape right before you shoot them down? It happens a lot to me and Ive missed quite an amount of points and kills thanks to them

Unfortunately, that is the only problem with this gametype and this whole game actually. You shouldn't be able to go into the enemies spawn points. Yesterday I tried coral sea for the first time thinking "hmm this will be fun" but as soon as I get in a plane some noob comes running out behind the command centre of my carrier and blows me half way to hell.

EDIT: 400th post :D

It would be a great improvement if enemy carriers were "out of bounds" areas. That way Japs suicide on Yank carriers and vice-versa. Would solve a whole lot of complaining.

Indeed now it still pretty often happens that some rocket guys are on top of my carrier and are destroying any plane that tries to take-off
