So I was in my Bristol 146 and I was taking on a GAA. Suddenly a P43 dives between to engage and because I was already on the airbrakes I couldn't pull away in time and it ended up a rear ram. And the D-bag tries to blame me like it's my damn fault.

 

It would be one thing if I dove in to attack and rammed him, but I was already well into attack on the GAA and he cuts me off then yells at me for ramming him.

 

If you're going to engage like that, a bit of courtesy. Don't dive right into another fighters line of fire when he already has the air brakes on full and then expect him to just be able to duck away because you want the kill.

 

Just total D-Bag move.

It happens rarely.  I’d suspect most players have experienced collisions of this sort in yours or their shoes.  Move on.  You have no control over reactions other than your own.  Keep some cheese and crackers at your computer desk as you play too for the munchies.

I'll try, I just cannot stand d*ckheaded moves like that, then get blamed for their stupidity.

That’s life.  It’s on them.  Add them to your ignore list and you never hear their rants again for eternity...

Since you can only see what's directly in front of you collisions are just a standard risk element when things get crowded.

You have to be more careful when near ally planes than enemy ones; you don't get paid if they hit you. I'm not saying you're at fault, just that you have to be mindful that sometimes allies either can't see you or really want that kill you're going for. It sucks, I know, but you can at least report them if they start throwing insults your way. I also advise not sticking too close to hostile GAAs in general (better to stay at least >200 meters away, optimally >300 meters) or bloodthirsty allies won't be your only worry :ohmy:

this has happened many times to me.  I also have been guilty myself of cutting people off tho not intentionally.

If it's getting crowded, back off. Better to stay alive than get the kill. A Bristol isn't that great for GAA killing anyway, at least not sitting behind them if they have a tail gun. Next time, try hitting the GAA from the side. Hit him hard right in front of the wings shooting at his engine and fly right by till you're clear of him, then turn around and hit him from the other side in an S pattern. This will keep you away from his tail guns. It'll also keep you farther from friendly's lining up on the GAA's tail. Be very aware that when you are close to a GAA's tail, he's very likely to either slow down even more to make you hit him or to drop some bombs. The important thing here is to not let another person's behavior and language ruin the game for you and also for you to not imitate him with your own bad language. Don't let it get to you, because then you start acting like him.

I hate it when I need bombers kills  for a mission and the bots dive in front of me as I shoot the bombers, I just keep firing.  They soon pull away.  I try not to shoot friendly humans, but sometimes people are jerks.

I've flown with and against you in teams. I'm pretty sure I saw that one in person! He bitched you out over public right?

A bit yeah. But I also bitched him out also. So I guess I should of turned the other cheek but I just find that annoying.

problem was the cap we had was under attack and at the time I and the other guy were the only ones defending and it's not like there weren't other targets about. Just had to have the two I was trying to stop.

 

But I guess I just have to back off and give up the kill.

If you're good at flying then you can change your angle and still get the kill, or at least not get hit. I know for certain I've done some fancy flying when someone gets a bit too close for comfort :bajan:
