meh. just figured I'd give a rather good idea to use until the devs fix the issue. Yeah, you can discuss balance issues, but until the problem is resolved what are you going to do? I just say adapt until you can go back to your comfort zone. there really isn't much more you can do, is there?

Not true, and any Terran that's been using it since release knows somethings different about it. Yep, it's easy enough to get a lock, but a lot of times you won't. Aircraft, unless you've got a number of Striker users shooting up at it, it's not going to die UNLESS it's stupid and hovers (now where have I heard that before). Almost the same exact thing goes for vehicles. An Outfit member and myself were ambushed at close range by a Magrider the other day. As both of us were firing Striker rockets into it, she died and I was able to finish it off. I carry 12 rockets, I had two left when I was finished.

Waah...I can't shake a missle lock. Waah...the Lasher is too strong. Let's nerf everything so I don't have to ever find skill.

PS: Maybe Vanu don't use the Lancer on Emerald, but they do on Markov.

If you hate it so much FIND WAYS TO FIGHT AGAINST IT!!!!!!!
Well, I used to be a MAX user, but not anymore thanks to the striker. I'm VS, so i have my supposed maneuverability and agility as my empire's strong points... but there is no way save for finding cover to escape from a striker's missle lock. Oh, wait, i move so damn slow that by the time i make it to cover 4 strikers have already hit me, killing me. My jumpjets are completely useless, as the striker posseses EXTREME maneuverability. It can pull a 180 degree turn instantly, so there is no chance of me "dodging" the rocket. At least with the phoenix, if he misses, he misses. I dont like that it can lock on to maxes, as they possess absolutely no chance of countering it.

I love my pheonix, but I'll drop it and pickup a striker as often as I can. Twice the effective range with jost about the same amount of damage. I don't ever fly over terran controlled territory.

I've never tried this, but can you 'shoot' down a rocket? If you grabed a shotgun, or aa could you blow it up in mid-air? maybe carpet the air with shotgun pellets? Might work.

Demon's Dragoons: we're the real reason humpty dumpty couldn't be put back together again, but mother goose thought that was too violent. The dragoons had roast goose that night.

Nope. I have tried this with all manner of MAX suits. The phoenix missle is the biggest and can be seen on radar. You cant even shoot this one down when its coming at you in a straight line

Actualy it is possible to shoot rockets down, or it used to be, I have done it before but it has been a long time since. Incindentaly It was reaver rockets and I was in a phanalax turrent. But it was so hard to do (i shot down like two out of a salvo) it's not worth trying.

Who wouldn't opt for the Thumper and Decimator over a single empire-specific anti-vehicle weapon for the same credits? Think about it... Solid AI and AV for 3 creds while leaving valuable credits free for hacking, vehicles and engineering. Sign me up!
