Since we are in the midst of overhauling ESF, how about we finally fix an age old oversight: Scythes simply do not have air-frame synergy. Mossy and Reaver pilots get to pick a frame each and still have top tier performance in another. As a Scythe pilot you are forced to choose 1 of the three because you don't get one for free. In detail: The Mossy still has "Racer" (comparatively) even if the pilot decides to choose "Hover" or "DF". The Reaver can still v-thrust almost like it had "Hover" even tough the pilot picks "Racer" or "DF". As a Scythe pilot, you only get to have the benefits of "Racer" or "Hover" or "DF". Never two at the same time. Not even partially. Logic (and the faction trait for that matter) would tell us that the Scythe should get better roll and yaw not unlike the dogfighting frame passively - just like the other two get partial air-frames for free - but instead we get slower vertical descent and slightly better brakes in a straight line. I'd gladly give that up for fair treatment when it comes to synergy. Come up with another idea than "DF" if you think giving the scythe more yaw and roll passively would somehow brake the game. Invent an new air-frame and get creative.. but don't just leave it as is. Don't make this thread about "what ESF is best" people. That's not my intention. All I want is for a 3rd of all ESF pilots not to be left outside in the cold while the other two get to sit next to the fireplace and have milk and cookies.
