Yea, I have no beef when paired up with land vehicles, and actually think that they are pretty cool overall. But I have huge issues with any faction getting something to benefit the F**CKING BURSTER. And you're right, people are all up in arms about these. I think it's probably because it appears that I'm attacking their faction and people's loyalty is surprisingly strong.
I'm hoping SOE is actually noticing these, but I seriously doubt it. That's why the upvotes are so important because they seem to actually watch reddit more than their own forums.
