I remove humans because generally, their F2 fu is strong. 

 

GA though, if I can help it, I will let them farm my bots and targets so they can at least pull a decent exp/credit game. I'll just sit 1200 or so meters above them, and watch the carnage.

Disassociating the names from the planes in battles is one of the worst ideas proposed on this forum in quite some time.

Also, if a player's rating is below 50% I generally just select them as a locked target and press f2 to send my bots after them. I don't like to mess with newer/less skilled players so I let the bots do my dirty work. It's more fair for them to face 5 bots than a single human, right? (OK, that was definitely sarcasm, I don't really do that - it's late and I'm feeling snarky.)

You know, until I read this post this afternoon at work I'd rarely seen the f2 used by players to coordinate bots.  Then every match I was in tonight it seemed like the command was given almost every 30 seconds, and in that time some unsuspecting human or not would get vaporized.  Certainly a strange coincidence

Considering all he needed to do was address the issue of :

When game countdown starts > hold right CTRL to free mouse> send mouse to the 4 little boxes above names list > click on box.

That will change the listing and hide names.

Well, I could ask the same... Who are you to just come in a thread you don't belong to and just insult people in here saying stuff that yourself you qualify as not being constructive? You see yourself as a celeb or something?

One is not supposed to play for "winning at all cost" but for having a good time... "Winning at all cost" encourages modding and other forms of cheating, since it's exactly  winning at all cost"

I see... more "constructive" trolling...

 

You two trolls seem to forget that the game was almost shut down a year ago thanks to such trolling, and was barely saved by adding the bots to random battles, which you troll fought against...

What is it lately with all of these new posters coming out of the woodwork and feeding the old time forum trolls?

Be sure to check your logic privileges before posting on the forum.

They are the light against the darkness

The keepers of the flame

Thine sword and shield

Thine staff and rod

All that is good and clean in the world

A beacon of truth in the land of the lost

The alpha and omega of the forum

In short - don't mess with them it's their thread, you were not invited

That last line got me laughing so hard I had to change my depends.

​Shooting the down top opponents 1st is not cheating.    Not sure why you have an issue, I doubt the top players would bother targeting you anyways.
