Seems to be an increase in "edgy" comments and behavior concerning this. A fine lad told me my mother was a completely different species than human and that I should attempt to perform acts on myself that are physically impossible. If an enemy plane flies in front of me, I will shoot it. If I have a teammate or flightmate with a tail, I will shoot it. If the last plane left is a GA and close to me, I will shoot it. Let's be concerned about winning the game over who shot what.

MelBrooks. I totally agree with you.

If you feel that some one stole your kill, my suggestion to you is, don't play with your food!

Kill stealing is a myth. Killing enemy planes is a team effort. Teamwork FTW. Those who get butt hurt because someone else got the kill, need to go play something else.

Kill stealing implies ownership. It's not dead so there's no kill. If there is no kill how can someone own it? If it's not owned, how can it be stolen?

Lets face it, a majority of the players in the U.S. do not care about kill stealing.  I have never heard any bot ever complain!  :trollface:

I've noticed over the moons that most people target the plane that you have versus the one that has you.

 

Big favor helping to get rid of the one that you didn't need much help with versus the one that is about to kill or already has killed you.

The biggest issue with this is when some ********** opens fire on a target in front of me from directly behind me, hitting me in the process.

Next time someone accuses YOU of kill stealing, tell them this:

 

"You fight like a girl, who is also a baby"!!

I look at situations like this as a triple kill situation.

 

1. I get to steal someones kill.

2. Some scrub I don't like gets killed

3. I kill the person who killed the scrub.

 

Do you think that is the reason people aren't clearing your tail?

Guilty only when they fly right in front of me while i'm firing on a target.

 

Sometimes my heavy trigger finger casually slides over to the rocket release button as well

How many times have any of you trusted a teammate to kill the plane and you move on only to have that plane on your six while your teammate does more damage to you than the EA?

 

unless i know the pilot im trusting, most dangerous target gets it regardless of who is doing what.

I don't mind them finishing the kill, but when they shoot through me ...........
 
 
Han shot first.

Makes me think of a recent match. It was one of the last non GA enemy aircraft. There was 3 or 4 of us shooting at the same target at different angles judging by the steam of bullets I saw. It awarded me the kill, and as everyone else went to mop up the GAs, someone claimed that I stole their kill.

 

I'm like "There was 4 of us shooting at one target."

 

It's a team based game and as a general rule, you shoot what's in front of you.

Naw, I call what you do lack of situational awareness

 

If you cannot see that one player is about to take out the "biggest threat" then perhaps you are staring at something wrong

Perfectly acceptable if he did not use his turn signal and wave....

THIS, more than anything.  Why should I clear a tail of some scrub that put himself in a bad position.  Especially when that is not the biggest threat in the game.  Sorry, the only time I clear tails is when clearing increases my chance of winning.  That goes if I am in a flight or not.
