I'm tired of getting rammed by AD heavy fighters.

I die and they go on their merry way.


 

Its a turn off.

My suggestion: turn that off.

But why you go head on with HF tho?

There is literally no point to it.  Even if they didn't ram, a HF guns would take you out.

Me neither, and I play GAAs a lot. In fact, they should die if they do ram you, which should give you quite a bit of capture points. Are you flying high (for a GAA) or chasing them down? Actually, which GAA are you having this problem so I can try and test it myself?


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

Recently Stuka.

Low and slow.

I die, they fly.


 

Regardless of reasons - I'm finding myself playing other games because I'm not happy waiting 2 min to get into battles, flying to the target, and getting rammed. If this was not a thing I'd play a lot more.

If they died too and I got some points, it would alleviate some of my butt-hurt.

Mid-air collisions should end poorly for both.


 

As it is, I rage sad-quit my first game the other night.

Thus prompting my post.

I've seen this a few times myself, ADA get overzealous and ram you while you're doing GA work, or you're pulling out to set up another pass.

 

But unless you're on critically low health an ADA ramming you is basically free points, so I don't really see the problem here other than it's frustrating when you're on critically low health?

 

Also the Stuka is not a particularly great GA, somewhat flimsy and slow, you might want to just cut into the German GA line from the Me 410 to the Me 265 if the Stuka is giving you trouble, since the Ju-88 plays similarly (albeit a lot better)

I'll try and record a battle on the Stuka to see how things go. But yea, the Stuka can be a bit rough since it relies only on cannons to do their work, even more so if you're running without the 37s. If you haven't sold the Fw 189 C you could try and unlock the Hs 129 B, which does get access to bombs (albeit weak ones) making ground pounding a bit less tedious. Or if you're playing the German heavies you can go into the Me 265 through the Me 210 (but I highly suggest you get the bombs of the 265 immediately through free-xp, as the plane is very, VERY rough if you don't run at least the bombs).

I got rammed this morning and lost, but that doesn’t happen to often. I always go head to head with them in my P40 but I turn away most of the time and shoot them down . My habit is to keep a eye on the min map to try and catch someone coming up behind me when I am fighting with another plane, it doesn’t always work but I still love it, lol.

I've been known to ram GAs (intentionally) with the heaviest fighter in the universe, the aircraft formerly known as the A-26B...

 

You have no idea the salt levels it can produce... not to mention just how funny it is, in general. (Plus, if you miss the ram and fly over them, just spam space and carpet bomb them into dust.)

I was playing my Ju88P Monday evening, on the Arctic region map with 4 depots and the airfield in the middle.  I was moving from the southern depot and to get to the eastern depot I was going over the mountain ridge.  After I crested the top, I saw a bot Beaufighter and he saw me and turned towards me.  I was at 50% with armor plating and I could see that he had wing damage and one engine on fire.   I started shooting at him (not easy with that 50mm) and he was shooting at me with no real effect and he rammed me.  I fell to pieces and he continued his defense of the depot. I thought at the time it was strange but I was a little higher because I was coming down the mountain.  He was low coming up at me.

 

As far as the Ju 87, I respect the opinion that they are not your normal GA but in my experience, once you accept their limitations and work within those parameters, you can do very well in it.  Use the slowness to your advantage while on the cap because it has a low stall speed and the 37mm have such long range.  My problem with the Stuka is exposing my wings and top side when turning back to target.  The ack ack eats me alive.  I should take my time and only use my rudder to avoid the banking.

 

Get the HS 129 regardless, it's a great GA hunter.

Alright, I went into a Training room on a Ju 87 G with a bot Ju 87 G on the enemy team on a map with two Military Bases to see if the Heavy ADA would ram either of us. They always seemed to pull away before ramming me, even when I was critically low on health or on a head-on engagement. My best guess is that they either smashed into you while they were pulling away after attacking someone else (which is true for all bots) or they were unable to pull away due to damaged modules, like a busted wing/tail or a dead engine. Not even the bot was rammed. I even tried slowing down to see if they would pull away a bit too late and hit me, but nothing. Here's the video:

I've seen this happen with Light ADFs. But not heavies. Must be a funny sight lol.... (sorry)

My tinfoil hat theory suggests these devs thought it were funny to code the AI to do silly things like this. Just like how they find bots talking to each other amusing.

verified and not amusing as devs have not been proven to play this game

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

I appreciate the replies, I really do.

 

But "try another plane" does not address the root problem.


 

I play certain AC because I like those AC.

I'm not grinding anything.

I'm not looking to get to tier 10 anytime soon.

I have a hangar full of (up to tier 8) AC that I like to fly around and go

RRREEEEEAAAWWWWWW

BATBATBATBATBATBAT

ZZZZZZHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOO, BOOOM!!!

[victory roll]


 

I'm a longtime history buff with a lot of flight-sim, flight arcade, (and real-life flying) experience.

Getting rammed by AD fighters is making me NOT want to play WoWP, which I otherwise enjoy.

It should not be a thing.


 

Thanks.

Well, I tried getting hit by them on the plane you said this happened to no avail, and in-battle I have never had this happen either. If you could record a battle maybe we could pinpoint what's going on

If only WoWP had the save reply option like WoT does.

But, I'm not playing WoWP at the now because I not enjoying it.

Well not enough anyway. Wish there were subtitles for us non-russian speakers. Which probably would cost quite a bit to cater to a larger audience. But it's nice to know they're still actively streaming atleast.

She speaks English fine.  With the right browser (like Chrome), you can have it automatically translate the Russian chat.
