Please, for the love of Pete, allow me to switch away from my dead plane's freefall to the ground.  Do I really need to wait for my plane to fall from 1000 feet before I can spectate from another plane's PoV?

Clan JTF-L is recruiting! We welcome veterans and new players alike that are committed to developing and executing good game-play skills, team work, and a competitive spirit.  The ability to use TeamSpeak is a must, as we value real-time voice for coordination and general chat during downtime.  We are also developing a junior division to allow the children of Clan members to join in the fun and competition.  A family that shoots tanks together, stays together.  If this is something you have been looking for, check us out.

Also the gentle flight to the ground looks silly. I want to see uncontrolled spins.

THough sometimes the death spiral is cool  I would like to be able to right click out of it more often than not too.

I'll also note that when you do finally hit the ground you can no longer use the mouse to swivel around and watch the view from the ground like you use to before.

I can imagine how this change came about...

dev room discussion:

dev1: yea man, lets have them spiral out of control flaming to the ground.

dev2: cool! let's do it!

dev3 totally awesome, we'll get some great screenies from this.

dev1: and if the plane hits the water we'll show it sinking!

dev3: bichin man

dev2: we should make sure it's a primo smoke fx!!! yea!

devmanager(in corner):  zzzZZZ  zzz,, "huh" "wha".. "hey did anyone fix that game crash yet?"



This is how it goes, and they convince themselves how awesome, cool and primo it will be, the problem is after the 3rd time it's dull, boring and dumb and they wasted all that effort.

Sometimes it can be fun to watch, but yes, usually it is just excessive.
