This. Also.

Caspian is just such an interesting map. You can walk/drive anywhere and it's huge. Like you said, a lot of morons wait for jets and then when they get them they can't fly. I love watching the crashes.

I was pretty awful with the planes and helicopters in the old BF games and was usually the happiest on the mini gun in the helicopter while someone who was really good at piloting the chopper was flying.

I was really good with a copter in Desert Combat. That was fun as heck. Even better than that was the AC130. Flying in general was nailed in BF1942. Desert Combat did have major problems with the copter when it first came out but later patches made it fun. The modders who made DC were brilliant.

On a side note, the single best vehicle in any BF game was the tiger tank. Oh yeah, you could go all round and not die in that thing. Good memories with that tank.

Even though the vehicles are what made BF so special, I'm not a huge fan of them in public matches.

+1 on the WWII birds - much better than the Jets.
I don't mind if people want to waste time waiting for a jet. When the game matures a bit after the release most go out and get the job done on the ground. Right now people just want to see how the flying is in the BETA. It will all calm down though.

I really enjoy the full open map of this game now. Yeah there are bugs and lag issues with 64 players but I stick to 32 players and it is fun.

The wide open maps of course feel like BF. That Metrosexual map felt like COD. It was pure crap on a plate served up to piss you off. It's funny because I am very easy to please in video games but that map I really hate.
the gas station "A" was a good spot for battles

waiting at the airfield is just retarded, agreed. would be so much better if the planes were faster though...

head on rushes against enemy aircraft and then swerving out of the way in the last second is awesome

That would mean bigger maps. I'm fine with that.

I like head on crashes where they don't swerve.
