Air Superiority

DICE has announced that they will be bringing back Air Superiority in End Game. It wasn't really all that fun in 1943, and I don't really care much for jets, so I'll just play it to get the medal and that's probably it. Even if they do include helicopters some how, they are just sitting ducks while being high up in the air---so its kinda pointless. But I do know a lot of people that will enjoy the hell out of it. Thoughts?

Better to have it than to not have it at all I say

Will be good for those who want a go in the air vehicles, but rarely get the chance for numerous reasons.
I knew it was only a matter of time before this game type was added, and I'll be looking forward to this, as i'm quite fond of jets myself

I guess if it is not taking away from the 4 maps we get with each expansion then I really don't care. If it is part of the 4 maps we get then DICE can lick a butthole. Is there an source for the info? It would be too simple to throw together a map for Jets and I would feel cheated if it was part of the dlc. Sky? Check. Blinding Sun? Check. Ocean? Check. I just made the best Jet map evar!

EDIT: Found out the source, it is on Battlefield Premium Calendar.


As long as it is just a game mode on top of the new maps and they were not specifically designed for Air Superiority I am ok with it. Hell. AK maps would be perfect for AS

^l wish the maps would be Highly vertical. Jets could fly between mountain ridges and infantry could scale the mountains.

l know l'm going to be an easy kill for as long as l try this. l have maybe 30 minutes of jet-play altogether..

Good to hear. I know alot of people who really wanted this game mode at launch.
I'll give it a go but will prob get owned. I can't fly a jet for shit.

Glad to see CtF coming back. I love that game mode.

Stinger Superiority!

This could be worth a giggle. If it's 12v12 and EVERYONE gets a vehicle (unlike, shall we say, another supposed "Superiority" game mode...) it could be awesome.
Also, they had better mix the jet types up - Flankers, Hornets, F-35s, Frogfoots (Frogfeet?) and Thunderbolts all together please.

This could be interesting, I wonder if you would actually have to run and hop into a vehicle or if you could just spawn in one, because like Rich said it could just be a stinger massacre. Oh the humanity!

But seeing how tank superiority turned out (with one tank and only a few tank destroyers) I'm not too sure what to expect to be honest. Hopefully they realise that everyone should get a vehicle so we don't have four people waiting for a single one to spawn.

On the rare occasion that I play TS, I just join 16 player servers. So then, everyone gets a vehicle if they so choose. Problem solved.

I never played 1943 but this sounds kind of interesting, dependant on how many air vehicles are availible at one time. The stupid OP stingers will ruin it anyway though

24-jet formation flying, anyone? Yes please. I think this mode could be really fun just to mess around in, so I'm glad it's coming. DICE better make it like it was in 1942/43, though, if you can just sit on the ground shooting Singers all day like in TS, then this will really suck. Ejecting should just be disabled and leaving the airfield/carrier should instantly kill you.

Just make it so you have the option eject-parachute, but you die 10 seconds within ejecting. At least that way like Opiate said the other players in the air have a chance to get get some crazy ass air-road kills. Very rare.

I've been Bad Luck'd by my own damaged chopper when bailing out...

Have been killed by a jet while parachuting. ROFL!

That's true! lol.

I'm a little happier about this mode now, as I lost my first ever game disc last night, I had my play n' charge kit plugged in, forgot about it, tripped on it while I had Ace Combat 6 running and knocked my console over. SCREEEEEEACH and destroyed disc... I'm actually quite pissed as it was one of my first games on 360, but I still can't avoid the irony of that being the game that I lost, lol.

And it's my fault they designed the eject system to send you straight through the props? Who's brilliant idea was it to launch a pilot straight up into a supersized lawnmower!!!! TELL ME!!!!!

I see this gametype going one of two ways: 1) Bad pilots will play it just to ram others and ruin it for everyone or 2) It will die out rather quick since good pilots will just dominate everyone.

Or a combination of the two.
