I don't think you can blame Don for Connery. From what I hear, TR had the air zerg for a while, and he created a counter to it. It would be nice if he'd chill out with it, and do what's best for the community, but you can't fault him for not wanting to feed TR kills all day. If anything, I blame all the skyknights for not playing as part of a team. Yeah, the enemy has numbers, the logical solution is to match numbers with numbers, not cry because no one wants to 1v1 with a nosegun. The devs gave us lock-ons, it's a **** mechanic, but do what you have to do to counter that. I'm trying to get some people together to group up on either NC or TR, but it's like pulling teeth. I pull a tricked out ESF for beginners after showing them the basics and they say "**** it" after 30 minutes, and vet say "**** it" because air is annoying as all hell. I just wish some of the better pilots would come back from Emerald, and some of the pilots who jumped ship to join Vanu would switch back to TR or NC to help balance things out. It's just **** right now. I'm leaning towards helping NC out, as TR has a crazy pop advantage once China logs on, NC rarely locks continents, and most people feel the Reaver is the weakest of the ESFs. I'm new and don't know all that many people, but I feel that some people with more persuasion in the game could really get this server in a better place and keep the game going a little longer. And really, if people want to be playing this game in a year, they really need to step up and make up for some of the developer's shortcomings.
