    Just remove the annihilator. AA and AV lock-ons are fine. Massing annihilators which creates a no vehicle zone is what is so ridiculous and overpowered.

    alternatively, the range of the annihilator should be reduced to less than the specialised air/ground counterparts. currently its range is at 500m, which is basically the only reason why it's so crazy effective. should be 250 or 300m at most against ground.

    Maybe I've just got lucky, but I haven't had much of a problem since they fixed the lock-on warning bug.

    Yeah. I tend to prefer the decimator over the annihilator.

    Especially in places like tech plant fights. It's incredibly easy to get behind a lightning. A couple of decimator shots up their arse and they're gone.

    Alas, I haven't tried the Decimator. I should, shouldn't I?

    Honestly, I don't see the point of deci hitting in behind, only good real use is vs sunderers

    Two shots a tank if you get it in the rear. Very useful for everything if you can lead your rockets.

    Deci vs. Standard:
    1 less hit required from all angles except rear

    And, because more often than not you are going up against already damaged tanks, the Deci often finished them off in one.

    Example vs. Prowler, rear: Magrdier HEAT one hit + Deci one hit = Dead.

    Magrider HEAT one hit + S1 = not dead

    Well you're really doing something wrong, if you let HA's near your tanks...

    We often Gal drop a squad of heavies behind a front line of tanks. It's incredibly effective.

    Also, tanks often roll into tech plant courtyards and the like. Prime killing grounds for decimators.

    Unless ist has Mineguard.

    But the calculator reminds me why I really regret purchasing AP for my Lighning and Magrinder. Waste of money. Should have gotten HEAT instead.

    Magrider for me is always anti infantry main and anti vehicle top. I find that to be the best combination. Someone else usually shoots down mozzies.

    My AA fortress sundy, for example.

    I just go with HEAT, find it works best in most situations. I sometimes pull AP for tank zergs but I find it to generally be very ineffective. HEAT is nowadays almost better then HE against infantry IMO, so I just roll with that..

    HEAT for everything. For one, I don't want to spend the cash on the other weapons. For two, HEAT is good.
