    Rocket pods are fine. They have already been nerfed to the ground four times. AA is still waaaaay more powerful then air, and if you have your butt towards an ESF and don't notice it's there, I think you should have a hard time escaping. It is not at all easy doing this unless you are a lone tank in the middle of nowhere.

    My SF has been downgraded to being my vehicle gun/medium range gun. I use it when I man a vehicle because smokescreens are still awesome. If I have to get into a base, I grab my SMG.

    If you are in a swagride you should get the magburner and as soon as you see the first rocket just burn off to the side and you will be fine. The only thing rocketpods are really effective against now is stationary tanks that are farming infantry, and well killing infantry that has no or very little AA cover. A single burster will mess you up real fast if they see you coming.

    If that counts as Decimator skills I really should learn how to edit video. The only impressive one was the lib in motion.

    Yeah, I do agree, that was hardly skill. But it shows how effective the Decimator is, that was mostly my point.

    It is pretty fucking great, I love it. With practice you can lob it towards far away moving tanks as well.

    Yeah, that looked really slick. And I just spent my last SmedBucks on the Decimator... Bad timing. Oh well.

    I read somewhere that Higby would like to see the VS anti-vehicle MAX weapon become something more like the Lancer sometime. That should be neat.

    If I can fire two pinpoint accurate lancers from my crab arms straight to the dome of a scatmax and kill him, we may have balance yet!

    I liked the look of the NC launcher the most, camera guides are always fun.

    But I do like the vehicle sniping potential of the lancer, the full charge damage is less than I expected but I can see a squad of these doing very nice things.

    I do worry about the NC launcher in defences. For example you're attacking a tower base and park your sunderer behind a hill or big rock, they can potentially keep shooting rockets at it from the safety of their base. Hopefully it won't be too annoying.

    The turning rate on it was pretty abysmal though. Big enough rock and you should be okay.

    Do believe, Pheonix will mostly provide anti-MBT capabilities in hill situation, but it will need some creativity to have lot of fun with it.

    Seeing how AV turrets are totally crazy right now, it might be a real problem. We'll see I guess.

    They seem to each have strengths and weaknesses, more so than I expected. Interesting that the Phoenix can be countered with flak - still seems awesome for sneak attacks/ambushes tho. The Lancer looks fucking epic.

    It sounds epic, also. I was hoping for a mini-Saron, and we get a portable Death Star!
