Yup, 39-0 with the attack huey. I'm not bragging for myself though, there's no way I could have achieved that without my squad. We had incredible teamwork.

Our strategy was to do strafing runs in a group. Empty transport choppers lead the way, they flared and took most of the fire. I always flew last in our formation so that's why I survived. If a 50 cal started shooting somewhere, I would pick up where it is by the tracers and take it out. We took out multiple enemy firebases, stationary AA's. Instead of always coming in from the same side, we mixed it up. The enemy had a firebase on the end of the airstrip so we would come in from the north for a frontal assault on one run and fly around the island and come in from the south on the next run.

I think I had a guardian angel watching over me that game :D Because not only did my game not crash and I wasn't kicked by pb, but a lot of the times it was like the 50 cals did not see me.




In the end, our team capped the Chinese main. We beat them even though the AONO clan was on the chinese side, and they're a pretty good clan.

Glorious.

Haha thanks, we joined about 10 mins before the game ended, but i still saw you guys ripping us up with the Hueys. Nice job using the transport Hueys as bait / using up their flares.

Must have been a good round, you use joystick or mouse and keyboard? i can never get the aiming right with a joystick i keep having to adjust my angle or attack every second which is pretty annoying...

nice round!

but i think its better i you have your sqd leader on the ground wich can set markers. This way you can shoot without even seeing the target.

Helicopters with a joystick = no no in PR.
Way too difficult.


And noooo, I've been beat :D nice job man. Yea we didn't have a commander and it was just 3 of us pilots. That's a good idea though, having a spotter. Would also be nice if infantry squads could tell the commander and he could tell us.

Why are you flying such a valuable asset if you frequently experience PB kicks and CTD's?

Because I'm good with it, and who said they were frequent? Once a game every once in a while.

There. You expected it to happen.

Nowhere says it was frequent and the main point of that sentence was 50 cals not seeing me. Will you drop it or do we have to argue English grammar next?

nioe score, but you wasted two hueys for nothing... saw people do it, stupid to the team but still destructive-.- there much more usefull tactics to do the same without wasting choppers for nothing...[blaat gived one, but even though its also pretty unfair, as you got a undestructble chopper as long as the round last-.-]

Never said we lost 2 huey's each run. We usually got out safe because we had an ocean of flares and I took out 50 cals rapidly. Out of all the runs we did, we probably lost 3 empty choppers (that respawn in 5). Not a waste of assets :D We won with like 100 tickets to spare.


Alex you're an anomaly :P

Would be ace to be in that game! I always love organised airsupport when im storming a flag as infantry! Have you got some screenshots or video?

Im seriously bummed that I missed that action. Sounds awesome to see or experience (even as the enemy) choppers coming from all directions attacking everything!

I still haven't gotten a chance to fly the attack huey, usually someone else is standing there waiting for it. Or in the case of Muttrah someone takes it and crashes/gets shot down instantly.

Yea unfortunately the servers don't turn battlecorder on anymore =/
One of the transport pilots got like 80gb of footage but i dont know if he's going to do anything with it.

They should really make the Muttrah attack huey respawnable.

That might be a good idea, but how would you justify keeping the attack huey available when you get a cobra gunship later?

judging by how fast the the cobra/attack huey go down in pub games, you wouldnt need to justify it lol

Nice one !
Too meny times i see those "fly high" "fly slow" guys attacking those enemys cars from the front side. when the enemy is usually expectim them to come. (sorry typos)
some times, its too weird, for some ppl to understand that, pr chopper eint same as bf2 vanilla, mostly those wery same ppl, are gonna crast those helos in barracuda, then starts the waiting peroid. The best crash total ammounth was 3 from same guy in 10 minutes. not gonna start writing names, but iv got "black list" ^^

Totally agree with you on this one. Being a SL and requesting CAS on an area and seeing a Jet/Heli come roaring in, unleashing a fiery storm of hell on the area and then hitting the afterburners and rocketing back to base for re-arming. That just gets the adrenaline running for me, and makes the next INFANTRY assualt all the sweeter ;).

Reminds me of one game of muttrah...

Took the attack huey, killed a few command trucks and the odd firebase, returned to carrier, hopped out, took the cobra, got shot down instantly by some random aa, got back in the attack huey and went 50-0 until I got disconnected.:D

One death in the cobra, one from the disconnect.

Flying with a joystick just feels too unstable for me :( I've got a Logitech Wireless Freedom.

Nice score on Muttrah! Were you getting good intel or just hunting by yourself? Also I want to know what server that is where you can leave the attack huey on the carrier and come back to it later lol.

All thanks to tango-6 who got in it and got back out when I was on the carrier, and I didn´t even ask. One of the rare times you really find a decent player.

I was hunting myself mostly, although I can´t remember that much. I think the combo of taking out the beginning trucks and firebases hindered plus the MEC team not being the best helped.
