This sums it up very well, and as someone who frequently goes to bat as a Skyguarder I can say that I've heard it from pilots many, many times. "Oh, you're not supposed to kill aircraft! You're just supposed to damage them so they run away!" "Well why can't I have greater damage so I can kill aircraft before they run away?" "Because you're a deterrent!" Well now I get to smile and tell pilots that they too are being downgraded to mere "deterrents". See how they like what they've done to AA in the game.
