They've been using the BF4 community test environment to test tweaks to the game that'll end up in Hardline, I guess they've just made choppers more maneuverable by allowing them to do barrel rolls.
I hope they didn't listen too much to the people who wanted to turn the game into Rainbow Six, things like taking away the parachute or making it take up a gadget slot. It seems like they've gone the opposite direction with things like making you run faster if you're have your pistol out instead of your assault rifle.
yeah I tried the barrel-roll choppers, they made the attack choppers definitely more manoeuvrable, slower than the scout, but it still feels like a flying coffin with all the AA gadgetry out there. in short, anything to bring the air balance back to BF2 I'm all for. barrel rolls (and looser more realistic wobbly chopper controls) and stationary AA would fix the air balance IMO. too many people got mad after being raped by air, they have fucking deployable anti-air dummy turrets in BF4 for christ sake! air is SUPPOSED to lay the hurt down!
oh well, in hardline I won't be spending too much time in the air, I'm looking forward to nice ground vehicle squadplay.
also I didn't know about the running faster with pistol thing, that's interesting. very counterstrike.
