I've been following the game for a while and I think I'll install it soon, but a question first:
I love sniping, how viable/good is it in this game and which faction could be considered the most sniper friendly?
I love flying around in my Reaver, killing Mossies and Schytes that are specced purly for killing things on the ground. I love hunting them down with my tomcat missils and autocannon.
I really suck in a dogfight, so if I meet someone else that are specced for air to air combat, I loose 4 out of 5, but I make up that by killing ten ground specced flyers before I go down.
Sniping is great but don't make the mistake of playing a stationary sniper. You need to constantly be on the move. Take one, two, three quick shots (or only one if you use bolt action rifles, stealth and move to a different position). And unlike other games where you think you can go on to dominate an army on your own, boy you are wrong! There are two armies to contend against and infiltrators (the sniper/stealth class) are very weak and easy to detect. You have no defense against vehicles and any other class will outshoot you when spotted if you are still using stock weapons.
It's a fun class when you keep in mind your weaknesses and strengths. Don't try to play it like TF2 Spy or the BF3 sniper.
Vanu might not have bullet drop, but the damage has a diminishing return the longer the shot travel so I would not necessarily call them the sniper friendly faction.
I would go NC for long range sniping, theres no need to upgrade the default rifle, it's just too good. (imo). And NC is the true underdog as it is, which in my book always is a plus.
Can anyone tell me which upgrades my Reaver would need to make it most effective at air combat and which ones for the liberator to be a ground unit killer? Assuming thats a possibility for each vehicle?
Which Vanu sniper would you suggest to be the best?
A friend of mine started playing yesterday so a few of us kept spawning him aircrafts when we could so he had a steadier supply for getting used to the controls.

So how is this game looking. I'm hearing mixed feedback here. Can't decide whether its worth the download or not.
I've walked the realms of the dead. I have seen the infinite dark. Nothing you say. Or do. Could possibly frighten me.We are not monsters! We are not the mindless wretches of a ghoul army! NO! We are a force even more terrifying! We are the chill in a coward's spine! We are the instruments of an unyielding ire! WE ARE THE FORSAKEN!Those who do not stand with the Forsaken stand against them. And those who stand against the Forsaken will not stand long.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it's kinda rare to get some "action". Been driving around with my squadmates for 2+ hours capturing areas and I've maybe killed 2-3 enemies. Never met any resistance. I suppose everyone else is just kinda going where the biggest zerg is? *shrug*
