AnyOne agree that PvP (FreeMode) is ruined because of GunRunning. I just Retired my Crew.

    I loved sniping with my Crew but I'm done plus I also liked to go in a Hydra and attack high level modders and what not and now I can't even do that.... I can't sell my Hydra and Rhino tank either so that fucking sucks. I would say I spent about 700 $ or above on Shark cards on this game maybe even more and I know competitive will still be competitive but Free Mode is ruined now. Does anyone else feel this way? I miss strafe sniping (Right index finger on x button, right thumb on right analog stick, and right middle finger on r2) as every time I try to do so I get exploded now.

    It certainly isn't the same. But I'm not done free roam killing yet. The poor have it the hardest by not being able to afford the new weapons, ammo, and armorment. Making them easier prey than before. The jets aren't useless yet but they have been dealt a big blow by variety of ways to take them down overnight. If you enjoy killing ppl in jets now is the time to Pioneer methods to defeat these new threats. But they are more vulnerable than they were two weeks ago.
    This update discourages infantry style fighting and encourages crew served vehicles. I'm a infantryman and a buzzard pilot. So I'm having to learn new ways of attack. In my opinion it's not ruined but it has changed and peppered with new opportunities.
    For example the new rocket bike can take you from rooftop to rooftop using the new sniper rifle and a thermal scope to rain down terror on foot soldiers and rockets on machinery. Or if you want the dominating experience of jets shitting explosive bullets directly on top of ppl heads and listen to their helpless rage. Get a rocket apc and start chasing poor fucks that are on foot. If they blow you up by luck they get charged for it! Trollop mf.

    I never used Hydras aggressively but I know those that did (and knew what they were doing) would always stay right on top of their enemy, circling high up before swooping in from directly above.
    It struck me when checking out the new hardware that nothing provided in this update looks up very high. I'd say this is the Hydra's only saving grace. Everything, including the heavy sniper is restricted to a max of about 60°(?) aiming .
    Most pilots will be feeling hard hit but the circling vultures from the vertical I suspect can still hurt.

    Disclaimer : This all went on in my head, not in testing. I may well be wrong.

    A pvp is ruined the moment you realise your opponent is a littl' shirker who will bitch out when they can't put up a fight on even terms so they either spam explosives or retreat to their own little evade spots such as property, yacht or just use passive mode while ready to attempt to kill you when you are the least on guard.

    But it defiantly helps when you got crew mates. If you come to learn the pros and cons of every op vehicle then work as a team to take the bastard out. Then, when you done so, all gang bang on him/her and continue to kill them until they leave, retreat and if they attempt to get another op vehicle you do the same thing again.
