Hey all,

 

   Just started playing again (2weeks ago) and loving it!  I've gotten much better thanks to all your help.  I was HEAVILY surprised though by how much my T4 aircraft are costing me.  I wish this shared gold with World of Warships (why doesn't it?)

   But, my question:

 

  Last game I was in my I-15bis dm [[my favoritest plane ever ever ever] ((minus the fact rear-gunners absolutely tear me a new seat cushion)) chasing a 110 heavy; I had him down to about half health, but he was much faster than me.  He was a human player.  I kept chasing him though, knowing the edge of the map was coming.  Imagine my surprise when he suddenly exploded and I was given no kill.

     - I am assuming when you get to the edge of the map, it says get back in the battle X seconds, then boom.

  

   But how come I got no reward?

 

  Sounds like a GREAT way to grief players.

When you fly out of bounds, you fly back in by autopilot. You should try it sometime.

 

Sounds like ragequit to me..



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

Oh.  So he just quit the game... and when you quit, your aircraft blows up?

 

Still, why didn't I get a kill.  He was outside of firing range for about 5 - 10 seconds, is that long enough to negate the 'whatever kill-death dmg you did' timer?

yup, no kill is awarded if nothing was being hit for a certain time

 

From the sounds of it this player must of been upset that his tail wasn't cleared so they suffered enough anyways

One general thought about chasing an enemy that is faster than you (if it's not in the end of a battle):

- you get separated from your team

- the enemy plane builds up distance, turns around and you're alone

- you're not helping your team fighting the other planes

- most likely the enemy plane (especially bots) go down to the deck, following him is giving up your altitude advantage


 

The faster enemy plane will come back, no need to chase him. Watch closely your radar not getting surprised by the counter attack.


 

If the faster plane is a heavy I tend to follow him down until I reach my decision altitude (some fighters are weak at low altitude better to avoid get trapped down low), but not laterally (see my point above), because I regard them as high thread for my team.

He didn't want to get shot down so he quit the game and exited to hangar. Plane go boom.
