Flying over safe areas the plane receives shots from nowhere (ghost shots) without enemy planes or AA in the area, causing 2 or 3 HP damage (in some cases)

 

(Sorry for my english)

In this you are not alone. I have experienced this as well.

Heavy Fighters? More like Obsolete Flying Bricks.

Attack Aircraft? More like Bomber-wannabes.

I've felt it too, very often.

Keep your head on the swivel.

happens all the time.

I didn't notice the HP loss, but I do hear a hit SFX out of nowhere.

In a combat area there are bullets flying around k.

 

It's not a safe place.  

 

K thanks.

 

Jaykay yah I get the same thang guys.  Really enjoying in a plane that only has 80 hp!   

 

"Hey pixel gods!  I really need those 2 h p for AA gun taxes!  Ye baster!"

 

Yah have all been on 1 hp running for your life to hide behind a hill while your focke self heals itself right?

 

So if the game takes that 1 H P away at the spawn of a new sortie they ate effectively balancing us.  

 

The game knows who will likely run  and an hide behind a hill with 1 H p.  

 

Heck I've even killed a half health Spitfire when I only had 1 H p in my yak.

I caught it the other day in shadowplay.  Here's a link to the vid clip. (The forum won't let me embed youtube vids.) 


 

This clip is only 20 seconds long. At the very beginning, you see me with the ALT key active and the 195 of 200 hp clearly visible bottom center.  Then, at 14 seconds in, you hear the shots hit the plane and I lose 1 hitpoint.  I'm over the ocean.  There is no AA or enemy planes nearby.  The only friendlies are all fighters, and looking in the minimap, you can see they are all pointed away from me.  So, it couldn't have been a random bullet from a friendly.

I think it's an intended feature so WG can kill you out of nowhere and make "karma, dude!" jokes.

Maybe every time SerB has a "good idea" our planes take this random little bit of damage, as if the whole WG game world must bear some small part of the pain.

I've kind of assumed this is caused by/representing stray bullets/AA rounds on the way back down after a ballistic trajectory or someone on the ground taking pop-shots.


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.
