The real beauty of the Rebel Jets advantage is that the Rebels can hit dev bases with fewer Jets than Imperials require and thus they can attack faster and rack up more conflict gears. (In the last year my Rebel account has, on average, collected 30% more gears than either of my Imperial accounts, with the same amount of grind time spent, which results in an average of one more UC per conflict!!!) If this game were to shift back to PVP, who knows, but right now in the current PvDev situation Jets RULE!!!
Well, don’t think so. Switch your bursts back to RFTs and you’ll see
It (PVP) seems dead because bases with flashing bursts and deeply burried barracks (implies rodian) are instant skips by rebels. If your base looks vulnerable, I’d bet you’ll be hit with 100% lost by jets swarm and the forum will have one more topic about jets/jumps imbalance
Right now, other than Hoth with long range mech buff, there is no effective counter measure for this flashing burst + buffed barrack sniper combination. This is an area that I’ve been advocating devs to address.
