I flew half a dozen matches and got rammed everytime I got on a bot tail. They turn and come at you every time and really it's not fun anymore.

I can have a guy down to 1 hp and he turns and rams me for the kill.

Not once but almost every game in a fighter after spawn.

If this is there way of making it fair for everyone they just lost another paying customer who used to live for this game(yes I'm a 1.9er) 

Now after getting rammed non stop by bots the first 6 matches I give up for the night.

 

Anyone else getting tired of rammy bot's or is it just me?

I get "bot" rammed (har har) occasionally and it is annoying, but not to the extent that you are seeing. I get rammed by friendlies more often than I would like.

But overall, ramming isn't a problem for me. And it ain't because I am super keeno pilot who can avoid them.

I did rocket one of the rammers second match in and it went downhill from there.

 

Not fun.

This is in fighters though.

ADA would just turn and ram me every time. 

Not fun at all and I guess I wont be playing again untill I get real bored.

I switched to LFs today after a diet of GA and have not noticed anything out of the ordinary.  I think sometimes these things just happen at ramdom (pun, get it?) and soon fade away.  

 

I mean, I swear one day I got overrun by friendly bots time and time again.  I switched to heavies and no one messed with me after that.  

 

That's why I like to play all types of planes.  Except when they do these "best of" challenges, then you have to stick to certain classes if you want the goodies.

OMG I had one game I finally hid at a Command Center and defended it all game due to ramming. 

Had 3 bots ram me while attacking a Military base and only the P-38 survived. 

Then another P-38 rammed me a couple more times. 

Even hiding at the command center the bots almost rammed me some more. 

I spent more time running from friendlies than attacking the enemy. 

 

Poor tiger was so upset about the loss and complaining about the match maker. 

We did not lose because the match maker, we lost because the way I played the game.

heavy ADFs have a nasty habit of just boring in for the ram.  It's very unfun, to put it mildly.  If only I was better at Rockets to the Facejutsu. . . . .

Yup.  Suckers will head straight for you.  I saw one I think tip a wing at me as I dodged him.  I KNOW sometimes a GA will try to ram.  Not seen a GA tip a wing yet.

I get a few shots in and bam! He bangs off a 360 and he's coming right at me. After being rammed a few times I fired up my i-16 and got a couple rocket kills because you cant ask for a better opportunity for one then someone coming straight at you. If you miss you got about a half a second to deke out of the way.

All the bots who turned to ram me were gonna die soon so that's all they had left for defense I guess.

The first guy I rocketed was so close that I exploded as well as the dude who was ZnBing me from god knows where at mach 1.

You know, if you were really Chuck Norris, any bot that touched your plane would crumple up and die right on the spot.

Yeah Chuck, I get tired of being rammed by bots as well.  If you jump one expecting a decent dogfight and you just get rammed as a first tactic, it's pretty offputting.  After a couple of those I close the game and go play in Europe or WoWS here.  It's a five-second pissoff but after a while it rubs the fun factor out of the equation and if my mind wanders that's a sure sign I should be somewhere else doing something different.  If the bots did something else besides kamikaze as a first tactic I'd be more inclined to stay in the game.  It's not a challenge, it generates boredom and yes, I've had battes where I just got bored but I stayed out of duty to the team.  If it gets to that point then it's time to bail.

So no, it's not just you.

Choosing that username was the worst decision I ever made in this game.

Nothing like drawing attention to yourself then a name like that and I should have picked a name like joe or something.

I get head hunted....A lot!

Exactly! it take's the fun factor right out of the game when you play 5 in a row and repeatedly get rammed.

That's why I switched to my i-16 with 6 rockets and started killing the same planes that were ramming my spit and zero.

Maybe it's time to take up rocketing again because a rocket kill always makes me smile and I had 1900 as a 1.9er! :teethhappy:

Ramming in 1.9 was bad for awhile.

Rockets and rammers in 1.9.

Guess I forgot it was the best way to deal with them except these were all humans!:honoring:

Edit-Forgot about this video and what it was like in 1.9. Ram blam!

No such thing as a rocketeer medal back then but it was tallied on your stats.

Maybe the bots are trying to look thru your canopy to see if you are really Chuck Norris.

Just played my first battle of the day and was rammed by bot-heavies twice. It cost me the match.

Uou should have picked a more dignified bot-sounding name.  Like mine!  Peof_Poopeypants is still available.
