So, basically prior to the recent rocket buff I struggled to get even 1 rocket kill in a battle.  Sometimes when there were missions to damage 2 planes with rockets, I would get extremely frustrated, it would take me probably about 100 battles to complete it.  Which is fine, historically I dont think everyone was going around getting rocket kills.

 

From that point we get to this point. All my kills were by rockets.  6 kills out of 7 salvos, double Zvonarev in the same battle.  I used 2 salvos on one HF, but I probably didn't need to.

 

This is just plain stupid.  Maybe the rockets needed a buff, but this has gone to the extreme.

 

Rockets OP. Please Nerf.

Maybe the rockets need a buff?

Maybe?

Wg won't buff until everyone has at least an Ace with rockets. You should know by now.

I have to agree. Previously, the only time I had ever gotten two rocket kills was an extremely lucky instance where I got two planes with one spread of 8 rockets.

Nowadays, I'm disappointed if I only get two out of three spreads from the R4Ms. Now, I didn't just suddenly get better at it overnight, now did I?

Yeah, I think that the recent tweak to the R4M and Mk4 may have gone a little overboard.

YA THINK!!!!!    LOL

Its like why even aim anymore :trollface:

 

 

Its all about "increased chance" you've probably seen rockets that you were dead set on them hitting the mark but end up not doing any or a bit of dmg as well

Your game may have a rocketeer bug but mine sure doesn't...Tried to get the 3 rocket kill badge today & never even got 1 rocket kill...This game has been like that with me...Everyone else can get it, but not I...Clawed every bit of the way.

   I'm in agreement  with the rest of you all concerning the R4Ms, with the pilot skill upgrades and ordnance it feels like you're carrying a shotgun of death with 3 shells for the tier 8-9 BVP's, and you can see what Mars did with the tier 10 of course. I'm not sure how they programmed it, or how it works, but at times my rockets seem to all hit even if I clip with one or two...heck...sometimes it looks like I miss and they all go off for the kill. As mentioned in my other post, before I could view a replay and watch individual rockets miss and maybe some hit among the 8 fired, now they all seem to go off and damage a target if they're "close enough"......horseshoes and handgrenades.....

hmm i need to go back to playing.  I always packed the r4m's for help in head ons but if you're getting kills with them now alone, that's awesome.  They were way too weak before no matter the accuracy.

Meh, think you are setting yourself up for a letdown

 

With these noob rockets you can totally miss and score a rocket kill

 

On the flip side what appears to be a hit can at times zip right thru your target

 

Apparently some genius thought they'd make the game easier for people who refuse to learn it but cried "I can't"

 

Sound like a story once told before??

It's another fantastic reason I have spent my time on picking my nose instead of playing this game, more productive, and less stupid.
