Well, yes, strictly speaking. The easy to use option should be strictly worse than the hard to use option. G2A locks shouldn't deal more damage than a dumbfire, a dumbfire shouldn't deal as much damage as the annihilator. The means that all the good pilots use the difficult optionbecause they can use it. And in an ideal, healthy airgame, newbies don't feel the need to use the easy option because they can fly with aces to get better. That said, in this specific thread, nobody's saying "don't use lockons" because we know we'll be ignored as long as lockons are stricly better than ab tanks.
