Wasps shouldn't be so useless against Scorpions

Aircraft in general, really. Even Banshees struggle to be useful against Scorpions unless they take them by surprise.

The Scorpion can hit the wasp far before the Wasp can hit it. The reason is that the Wasp’s weapons are effective at lower range than the Scorpion’s cannon, and it is also unable to aim at the Scorpion until long after the point that the Scorpion can easily hit the Wasp. The wasp can’t aim very low, but the Scorpion can pitch its turret extremely high. The Phaeton shares this problem.

Sure, sure, “Tank beats everything,” but that is neither intuitive (logically speaking, aircraft should have an advantage over ground vehicles) and it’s obviously a balance issue.

Your only option against a Scorpion is to either keep your distance or hover above it, the latter option making you very vulnerable to enemy teammates.

A Wasp being a level 3 Req and a tank being a level 6, it’s most likely not meant to be used to face off against a tank.

Yes they should, one or two wasps should have a difficult time killing a tank. Wasps are overpowered enough early game, they should not be able to kill a tank easily.

The story changes when it is several wasps, if lets say two or three wasps gang on one tank, then the odds are as they should be.

Have you seen Spliced completely wreck enemy tanks with Banshees? Tanks are actually vulnerable to air units because it’s difficult to hit with the tank shot unless that tank is a Hannibal.

The top 1% of players bears little impact on how most games go. In practice, it’s not that hard to lead the shots if you’re at the point where it’s too close to dodge the Banshee’s cannon.

A plasma pistol is level 3 and can defeat a lone level 8 Phaeton or a lone Hannibal Scorpion quite easily at close range. Low-leveled items are not necessarily meant to be ineffectual against higher-level items.

I have yet to see someone blow up a Hannibal Scorpion with only a plasma pistol, but I’ll give you credit for the Phaeton seeing as if you shoot it down and it falls off the map, you’ll get the kill. But like I said, the Wasp is most likely not meant to face off against a tank.
