I used to be good at AF. Stopped playing starhawk in july so ive gotten pretty rusty
I feel ya, I've been playing Hawk about 95% of the time now and when I go back to ground I feel so out of sync at first, takes like 2 maps to get me going.

My opinion of CAF, its in the game go for it but I personally find it a bit exploitive to be spinning prior to having lock ons, then again I'm using a very similar exploit now while flying AF which has been dubbed the "freakyshuffle" after freakyevil
1) it's not an exploit
2) they are not similar at all. One prevents a lock on, the other is the organic scrub, it is just easier to scrub if you had been doing it already, but you can be locked onto no problem.
Both the spin in CAF and the shuffle in AF are organic scrubs, neither need to press X (or however you put canned dodge) to break locks. One just spins and spins and when your locked the lock breaks in under a second the other wiggles and waggles and does almost the same but is a little harder to break the homer on than just spinning.
Both are exploits if the devs didn't intend for either behavior and I know for a fact one dev stated "We don't want spin to win in SH (which it is)".
Your opinion its fine, my opinion its an exploit. That is the beauty of opinions they aren't right or wrong but can be substantiated .

I've been flying AF exclusively since I started playing. I've definitely gotten better, but not good enough to attempt to stand toe to toe with the big boys. Average is my middle name. Hell...I just finally went positive in k/d not too long ago.......but I generally try to play the objective.
Sounds like me I'm happy as long as I get a lot of XP
