    anybody been in (at least) one in FOC? i've been in plenty in both games

    i was in one (it was more like a chase) that got me the headhunter achievement and i was stunned at how skillful i was when chasing after the guy

    I was in one with one dude when I rented WFC that lasted the entire match. It was insane, and ultimately bullshit.

    Yeah, pretty boring though. Mostly just both of us floating back and forth shooting at each other until one dies.

    I think I am in atleast one dog fight in every match, I hate to say it but taking out barrel rolling makes chasing down other jets A lot easier, so thanks highmoon

    It's not a real dogfight without machine guns. I was always disappointed that Scientist/Jets had both in campaign, but only missiles in MP.

    I've been in quite a few with Starscream in the campaign mode. I wasn't hovering around and spamming my rockets though, I was actually boosting and doing barrel rolls to one-up the enemy jets the whole time without stopping. In multiplayer I usually boost in and bomb the enemy player, and kill them before they even knew what hit them, and then I barrel roll back into the sky.

    Barely get any the only time I use the missles is when someone is trying to run away in TDM or when im flying into a battle and sometimes against another scientist.

    Dogfights? It's just waiting for lockon and firing missiles.
    Doesn't help that transforming and air dodging left or right is enough to end the missile's tracking and let you be on your merry way.
    If you had the option of a machine gun in vehicle mode, then yeah, dogfights would be kind of cool.

    I actually use Dogfighting as a custom game type. I play it very often with friends.

    I like the thrill of chasing/being chased in MP. One of the best parts of being a scientist I think. I always enjoy being a ground vehicle and when I'm in the middle of capturing a control node or after killing an enemy, seeing the hovering air vehicles chase each other and duke it out right above my ground team.

    I never have dogfights... It's more like me chasing down a coward until they stop and get a rocket up their tailpipe.

    I'm in plenty in WFC. I always win them when i'm a scientist. On the ground, I just rely on my resources and hope i don't run out of ammo.

    if some one or two chasing u same time...
    first look at the signal ( yellow, red, flashing red)
    yellow : some one behind
    red : lock on u
    flashing red : rocket on butt
    (if i remember right)

    second when u fly...like this...[​IMG]
    like a circle

    third... look for pillar or something u can fly a circle until see ur emeny butt

    for me is work all the time to save my life and kill whatever who chasing me

    Yellow means you've been locked onto, and red means the rocket's coming. There's no flashing red I know of.

    I've been in a few. One was funny in that after I lost the missle lock via skillfull flying (though a building) I managed to circle around and hit the guy who fired at me to begin with.

    By and large, no, Dogfights aren't that great just because of the options and number of people playing.
