I find this confusing.  Aren't pre 2.0 and 1,4 to 1.9 the same thing?

 

 

Yep, that is confusing, but you get the general point I'm sure.  I could have said that better bud.  Just look at it as redundant and reiterating.

I see.  No problem.

 

BTW, it's been a long time but when I first started flying bombers when they first came out, I used to get (often) 'why can't you come down here and fight like a man?'   Too funny!

Fighters used to say that about heavy fighter pilots, as they were being torn apart by one.  That rock was also thrown at ground attack pilots.  And now at bomber pilots by most everybody.  There is a kind of peace, and maturity, in ignoring the gallery.

This game:

 

Bomber Play: mindless destruction of stationary ground targets.

"Competitive Bomber Play" (using the term as loosely as it has ever been used): mindless destruction of stationary ground targets slightly faster than the enemy bomber mindlessly destroying stationary ground targets.

MR, LF, HF Play: mindless destruction of NPCs.

Competitive, MR, LF, HF Play: mindless destruction of NPCs slightly faster that the enemy mindlessly destroying NPCs. Occasionally headhunting the live enemy players (1/12) to prevent them from mindlessly destroying NPCs.

GA Play: see bomber play

Competitive GA Play: see competitive bomber play.

And not all of those are pre 2.0 pilots.  I have a little diff outlook on why you get swore at, hun. :trollface:

BTW, I disagree with the only noobs opinion.  Bombers, flown successfully, require their own set of skills.

I generally only get sworn at by the insecure and ignorant. There's no theory to it. I threaten people's miniscule egos. However, I speak of in game, not the forum scrubs when I speak of being sworn at. Most of you don't fly enough for me to have ever seen you in the game.

You just go ahead and believe that if it makes you feel good.

WG added bombers so the less skilled gamer would have something to do other than get owned in dogfights or play the other windowlicker class GA's.

 

I don't know about that - bombers are pretty tough to consistently master considering how often they are targeted now with HFers.  I think Bombers can give less skilled players a slower pace game if they play it like a windowlicker, but to completely dominate game after game in bombers takes chess-like-skill to control the ebb-and-flow of capturing sectors.

Perky is a troll, and the less you engage, the more he shuts up.

Sweet necro, BTW.

I could be wrong but I think Perky is actually an alt for GangStar or Gouldy.

I haven't been flying bombers that long. But I'm getting better. I can tell because Gartson and HHJ told me so by dropping out of every battle that I am in against them. :)
