I did and I stopped using it. Good pilots on my server won't stay on the sky hovering while I lock and shoot 2 magazines on them. They move around, that breaks my lock even without them wanting it. If I ever get a succesful lock it will get flared. If it doesn't because he already used them then he will just afterburn past a building/mountain and get no damage, and even if I hit he would't allow me to lock on him yet another time. Then he just repairs and rinse and repeat. It doesn't stop them from killing you or your teammates, it just makes them go home after having done that. At least on my server they serve no purpose and you are better trying to get them down with a lucky stock RL or bring an AA max. Only time they are useful are when massed (but then it stops mattering it it's striker, annihilator or grounder since it's overkill) on really open spaces like camping some warpgates. However I remember good pilots on my server flaring in the last moment, rocketpodding us and then afterburn past cover or to their warpgate and 100 lock ons DID ZERO DAMAGE. Only thing that could damage such smart pilots was flak. Also I'm a pilot myself and I think that complaining about lock ons is pathetic. Yesterday I was farming some poor guys with them, since I guessed where they were I just used my hover airframe to hide behind buildings and cut their locks on purpose and make them rage. Then flare and lolpod them mercyless laughting at their useless weapons that did zero damage to me. Also, I was getting a lock on some place but didnt find the guy, so I put third person camera and hovered still so the guy hit me, then I turned back on the direction of the rocket, tracked him on top of a hill with my thermal vision and flared his second lock. Then I stared at him while he tried to get a third lock and lolpodded him before he shot it. If he hadn't shot his useless weapon I would have never see him on that mountain and he would be alive. Lock ons are bad. People who complain against them are bad. Period.
