Fix Solo Liberators

    A lib pilot shouldn't be able to swap between Driver --> Gunner seats at whim. It allows him to effectively have the advantages of a multiple-person-occupied vehicle at little cost. The game should encourage teamwork, and solo libs go against that.

    Suggestion: You can only switch seats in a vehicle when it is stopped. (This would also help fix the self-healing harassers)

    Let me guess, you was in a ESF and he one shot you with a Dalton and perhaps you are angry because he spoiled your free lunch?


    If you talking about bombing infantry troops then the speed at which you plumet when there is no pilot makes it a death trap anyway.

    Honestly if someone is doing this successfully then kudos to them. Unless there is some method to make a Liberator hold steady in the air rather than dropping like a stone when you leave the pilot seat then I really dont see a problem with this.

    I don't think you've tried solo libbing. It's not anywhere near a viable option if you can find a scrub gunner.

    Solo lib? It's the solo galaxy seat swappers you've got to look out for.

    Only time I tried that my galaxy got instagibbed by an antenna because my game glitched out while switching back to pilot =(

    Panj you need to play with more than 12 FPS ;)

    A 1/3 Liberator (NUC's pntballa18) VS a single Reaver (QRY's Naterain)
    4500 Station Cash on the line. Best 3 out of 5.

    it is fun solo lib and instant killing tanks from behind :( and ofc skyguards :D
  14. Kirbs

    Yeah it can seem a bit crazy to kill tanks so easily when you sneak up behind them, lord knows I try and do it as much as I can, but I have also been Aced by some prowler main guns while bombing so I don't feel too bad about it.

    During the Biolab Alert on Waterson last night, I had the good fortune of watching a solo lib pilot wreck himself all over Allatum. It was so funny.

    That pntballa18 guy is definitely the best solo lib pilot I've ever encountered; he's a freaking monster.

    I only claim to be a mediocre pilot at best, yet I normally make a beeline straight to a single passenger lib when see one for usually an easy kill. But if it's pntballa18 I afterburn the opposite direction!

    I've tried to fly solo in a lib before, and it's very tough if you come across any ESF pilot with a modicum of skill. Those people who have mastered the solo lib technique deserve the rewards they reap imo.

    was it me that killed you?
    Were you a reaver pilot the other day trying to kill me and I just dalton shot you in 1 single shot at a range while you were tailing me?
    *not close, far. my first shot hit.. What a lucky shot :p
    Or were you in a liberator and got 2 shotted by me?
    Dude, that **** isn't easy to pull off and it's actually pretty hard.
    Especially if you're on your sides, you fall and pummel into the ground.

    I usually solo it cuz, everyone is just bad. :p
    And it's actually kinda fun. It's not something to worry about though. :rolleyes:

    Solo libs aren't even a threat, unless they're just using it for the tank buster. Even then they aren't going to do much before getting shot down.

    Are you really complaining about a solo lib pilot killing you? That has to be the silliest thing ive read all day, and this is Forumside so thats saying something.

    Do you have any idea how difficult it is to swap seats and shoot things with a lib? You do know that you only have a few seconds before the lib starts a death spiral toward the ground. It doesnt fall nice and level, it lists and spins and its impossible to shoot.

    So you have maybe up to 5 secs to switch seats, orient yourself, acquire a target shoot the target without missing because you have only time for one shot, and then get back into the driver seat to prevent catastrophic free fall. And you want to nerf that?

    If i ever got shot down by a solo lib swapping seats in my ESF i would send that guy a tell and tell him how awesome i think he is for being able to do the hardest thing that you can possibly do in this game.
