I like the ARC, because I pilot it much better than the other starfighters.

My favorite is still the classic X-wing, I find it a good balance of balance and bomber, moreso then other multipurpose fighters.

My favourite are ARC-170 and the V-Wing.

I have heard the V-Wing is a bomber class, but with it's small design and etc make me beleive it isnt..

Well in the actual star wars universe it isn't it's more of an interceptor, but for the purpose of the game they made it a bomber.

I find this a bit retarded, but as long as I can destroy ships i'm fine with it.

ARC-170. I also like the Tri-fighter missiles

Well, as compensation, the V wing is actually the only bomber that can dogfight. It's very fast, small, high HP for it's size and it's blaster is pretty powerfull at close range and it's a "shotgun" effect, so is more likely to get a hit.

Doesn't excuse people who suck in a Droid starfighter though.

i use the v wing to bomb fighters so instead of takeing 5 minutes to destory a transport i just use 2 or 3 bombs to deastory them and its easy to get the bomb on the ship and it takes out fighters with one hit its far better thne a fighter ship. :vsd: :blast5:

I voted TIE Interceptor but I only use it after every Auto Turret has been shut down. After that, the only thing I hate about them is that one shot from a bomber takes them down.

Republic Starfighter. I just love the Jedi Starfighter design!

MagnaGuard

Voted Tie-Intercepter because of quad-lasers and I can launch ten missiles at time instead of multi-purpose, where I can only shoot two at a time

Darth Andrew
11-19-2005, 01:45 AM
I pity the fool who didn't put down 'V-wing' as an option. :mrt: (I voted 'Other')

MachineCult
11-19-2005, 08:23 AM
If i put the V-wing i'd have to put all the bombers and you can only have 10 options on a poll.

Darth Andrew

Yeah, well, I still pity the foo'. :p

Why? I think the 170 is pretty good for it's role, thanks to the long-lasting lasers.

i love the tie interceptor, its fast and most of the time i just play on the empire's side

Diego Varen

My favourites are the X-Wing, because it's classic and the Republic Starfighter, because it's fast and it is one of the best Starfighters in Battlefront II. If only they had put the Naboo Starfighters in.

(I've also noticed that this is the longest Post in this Thread so far.)

my favourate is the CIS bomber (cant remember the name) because when you play as the republic get a v-wing fly over to the CIS capital ship and blow up all the insides like engines and sheils and stuff then get the CIS bomber and use it against its own ship by blowing up the communications array and the command bridge :)

GlobalStrike
08-16-2006, 12:55 AM
Any interceptor class ship, because they are all fast, nimble and sweet. My favorite of all of them is the A-wing. Ever since i saw return of the jedi, i've loved those ships. My only problem with the space fighters is that all the class are almost exactly alike, with few exceptions. :jawa :jawa

mine is the trifighter and the tie bomber

DarthMuffin
08-21-2006, 11:53 AM
Republic Starfighter is the Eta-2, right?

Then it's X-Wing, A-Wing, Vulture and Eta-2. V-Wing is also brutal (and really, they should have used the ARC as the bomber...).

I just hate the Tri-Fighter though. Don't like it's main attack.

Davinq

Tri-droid chainguns kick, and V-wing bombers haul all da way!

TheMichal

ARC-170 of course. My favorite fighter, not most effective but most preety and cool. TIE-Interceptor is my best in GCW

RC-1162
08-26-2006, 02:49 PM
although i havent played it yet, my favs will be the X-Wing, the TIE Interceptor and the Eta-2

Personally, I like the X-wing, when you start off going to the other capital ship, I like having not the weakness of the Speed-style, because they get shot down like flies by autoturrets, not the bomber and its hard maneruverabilty, which makes it an easy target for starfighters, but the multi-purpose that'll give me the right amount of speed and strength. Besides, I feel more comfortable with it.

Master Flick

i got to say ARC-170, X-wing,TIE interceptor, Imperial Landing Craft And CIS strike Bomber

I really like the jedi starfighter because of the extreme speed it has to offer!

EliteHeadHunter
02-20-2007, 12:33 PM
ARC-170 great for dogfights and strafing runs, best multipurpose fighter. However, in Galactic Civil War my best fighter is TIE Interceptor because the multipurpose fighters suck a bit in a dogfight so I have to specialise to be most efficient

MachineCult
02-20-2007, 06:49 PM
^^^ The TIE interceptor has exactly the same speed and weapons as the Jedi Starfighter. The rockets are great for quickly taking down other fighters.

Titanius Anglesmith
02-20-2007, 08:43 PM
^^^ Aye, the TIE Interceptor is definitely my favorite. It has the best missiles out of all, imo.

Dark_Hunter

Hmm I love the CIS gunship. Those missiles rock!

EliteHeadHunter
02-26-2007, 01:28 PM
ARC-170 and TIE Interceptor. The two best dogfighters (for me anyway)

Lt_Justin
03-06-2007, 12:57 PM
AR-170 is my fave. but the imperial transport is the best trans port

EliteHeadHunter
03-26-2007, 12:51 PM
I disagree. The most powerful transport is probably the CIS Droid Gunship. I mean, its heavily armoured, so most scout fighter classes need multiple runs at it, it's heavily armed, with all those damn missiles it churns out plus the beam cannon, and it has lots of capacity for soldiers and multiple firing positions, so...yeah...erm...

The Mullet Fish
03-27-2007, 05:42 PM
I think I've flown the CIS Gunship least of all the ships, because some mangy computer always manages to beat me to it. Then they usually fly it into a wall or something. Or the enemy flagship. I mean, their hearts are in the right place, but the game's engine is too far behind their selfless attitudes to make it a worthwhile sacrifice.

I'd say that in the early stages of the game, the Y-Wing is my favourite, but I like cleaning up with the Interceptor the best. If I don't actually feel like blowing anything other than enemy ships up, I prefer the X-Wing. Come to think of it, I have a LEGO model of both the Interceptor and the X-Wing.

I really like the ARC because its powerful but can dodge missles and fire from other shis.

Agreed here. Easily the best missles, good speed too.

I like all interceptors except the tri-fighter. I also like the multi-purpose fighteres except the TIE Fighter. It saddens me that bombers are the only good thing that can destroy capital ship systems.

Relenzo2
04-10-2007, 09:51 AM
That's what bombers are made fore. Fighters are made for killing other fighters, transports and bombers...

And should fighters have a bunch of bombs and heavy armor slowing them down? No. Why would anything but bombers be good at blowing up capital ships? That's what bombers are for... to drop bombs.

Darth Newfie
04-10-2007, 03:30 PM
I didn't mean to say fighters should drop bombs but there missiles should be strong enough to deal a decent amount of damage. I hate losing the battle because I chose to dogfight with a fighter that yields about 2 points per kill rather than eternally bombing a ship to get the big ammounts of 50 and 60. The multi-purpose should have strong enough missiles so that you can switch from dogfight to bombing whenever you want.

The multi-purpose should have strong enough missiles so that you can switch from dogfight to bombing whenever you want.
So what your saying is that all ships should be able to deal a lot of damage to capital ships? That would make space battles suck even more than they do now. Each type of ship should have it's own advantage - bombers are good at taking down capital ships but not so good at taking down fighters and/or dodging fire from other fighters, fighters are good at taking down other ships but not so great at taking down capital ships, and all-purpose fighters aren't strong in either, but they're not bad. There's such a thing as "unit balancing."

And about being disappointed that you lose battles as a fighter, you'll just have to live with it. You can either play as a fighter and take down a whole lot of enemies, or be a bomber and destroy the capital ship.

A capital ship system gives you about 20 points, and it takes me about 30 seconds to a minute to take one out. As a fighter, I'm usually able to get about 10 to 15 kills in about that same amount of time, and if I don't, I'm still way ahead of them. So really, it's not that hard to win a battle as a fighter, it justs takes a little more skill and effort.

Darth Newfie
04-10-2007, 06:31 PM
No thats not what I'm saying at all. I said that multi-purpose fighters and bombers should be able to deal a decent ammount of damage, not the interceptors and transports. I don't really care about losing a battle against AI. By the way, hence the name MULTI-purpose. They are supposed to be good at everything.

bombers are good at taking down capital ships but not so good at taking down fighters .

If you are as lucky as I am, taking down the occasional fighter with a bomber is not that uncommon. ;)

It is much easier to play on GC and win as a bomber, taking out the capital ship's frigates and and critical systems. Like EagerWeasel said, those who want a challenge (and have the skill), dogfight.

But you see, fighters and multi-purpose fighters shouldn't be able to do a "decent amount of damage". If you do that, that takes away the bomber's advantage. Fighters should not be able to do practically any damage to capital ships, and multi-purpose fighters are supposed to be average at everything, not good.

Off-topic: About your sig, isn't POTC coming out May 21st? And whos the guy on the far right?
No, it comes out May 25th, and the guy on the right is Sao Feng, the pirate lord of Singapore.

If you are as lucky as I am, taking down the occasional fighter with a bomber is not that uncommon. ;)
Actually, yes, I am able to take down fighters with bombers sometimes, if I get some good shots in. Since bombers are so slow, it's hard to keep up with them, so you have to take the shots quick.

Either the republic starfighter or the TIE interceptor. They're both quite fast and have good secondary weapons.
