Everytime I spawn my scythe, I get killed by an airplane within the 2 minutes, making waste nanite, time and drive me mad because I can't do anything except seen my health bar drop to 0. Due to that, I've boycotted airplane gameplay from BR1 to 90, but now I want to play ESF sometime, mainly to defend a base swarmed by enemy. (I mainly use A2G weapon) So, it's mainly the same thing again and again : 1) Check the map for enemy presence, look in all direction in the sky then I spawn a scythe. (it prevent being killed at the terminal or just after spawning a vehicle) 2) After flying for ~2 minutes one ESF attack me from behind. 3) Trying to escape by running in direction of the warpgate or an ally skyguard. 4) I die Since I'm focused on the ground, they often engage the fight at 30 meter from my rear/top. As I'm playing with A2G weapon (LLA+FuelTanks or nosegun+lolpods/hornets) I don't even try to fight back. So my questions are : -As a scythe with LPPA/fueltank, how can I react when attacked by a reaver or a moskito that also have nosegun/fueltank ? -How to run away from a equally skilled or higher skilled ESF ? -Does scythe have stats disadvantage over other ESF when attacking from behind ? (pitch down/up seems slower than on reaver/moskito and I think scythe hitbox is larger than other ESF outside from dogfight) -Reaver have better afterburner and moskito have better cruise speed, what's scythe main advantage ? -What frame is better to escape other ESF ? (I'm currently using hover frame) -When they engage me at close range and I want to fight back, how do I turn back without losing half of my HP ? -When the enemy hug your rear, is it possible stop to be on their back or at least crash on you ? -When attacking from behind, should I consider myself doomed and peacefuly land on the ground to escape ?
