Another this is Air supiriorty is now a KEY FACTOR in a match. You don't rely on Sams to do the job anymore, and you rely on Air power. This makes the title of the game actually stick out at you, because now there are DOG FIGHTS. Recon and Fighters/interceptors are now extremely important to the game. Recon spots bomber, Fighter get's called out, fighter shoots down bomber. Not Recon see's Bomber, then Sam shoots it down half way across the map.
On the Strike Eagle. I know what I'm about to read on the forums, "Strike Eagle is so OP now". Not really, the price that it cost, the availability and, the amount of time it takes to reload the thing makes it perfectly balanced.
There's no more Ground vs. Ground only, now it's Ground and Air. And people are starting to cry because they can't adjust to it.
Great Patch you guys, Best one I have seen during the Beta, Keep up the good work Eugen.
