    well, its a great way to attack the cores, plus, only(i think) way to take the deemer, thats good enough IMO.

          Its fast, can reach the redeemer, and is great for quickly reaching a node that is under attack/needs attacking. Also its important for someone to assume the role of team pilot, to make sure the opposing team doesn't have too many/try to shoot as many down as possible. In mass (3 or more on a single team), Raptors pose a serious threat.

                Its the opposite. Flying lower, you can throw many AVRIL users off using terrain to your advantage.

                  Higher makes it a little less likely that people who aren't actively searching for raptors will see you.

                  But it also means more people have a clear shot at you. The AVRiLs have more room to maneuver as they home in on you. And it takes longer to descend behind cover (eg, to break the locks that 3 people on the hillside have managed to get on you).

                        thats what im saying
                        I get WAY more on ground kills with it than I do the warthog(or whatever its name is)
                        closer to the ground you are your fire will impact faster as well so you dont have to aim a mile ahead
                        go down in there node as they spawn grind on the ground and shoot -it tears ***** up :up:

                              And something most people keep forgeting.
                              Torlan is not the only ONS map in UT2004!
                              I'm sure it will own in the bigger maps.
