I just had a battle where I was all alone against a flighted pair.  I thought this was a thing of the past or did I misunderstand?

 

Ticket sent.

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.

They said that would only happen on rare occasions, and when it does,.... your suppose to get superior bots to even the sides.

But if your getting rolled by the pair, you always have the option of the.... " Back to Hanger " button..

I have played several games where I was solo against a flight.

It is or has been normal for me for the last 2000+ battles.

It is easy to win against them if you can get them split up.

You know like, destroy 1 so he is sent to re-spawn then run like heck

as far from their re-spawn point.

Screaming " clear my tail , clear my tail "  Then turn and shoot him out of the sky.

Hmm. Strange. Normally if there's only three people they all get put on the same team when I am playing

Back to hangar is NOT an option.  It is a cop out.

You clearly thought it was a problem, being you went out of your way to post and submitted a ticket over it.

So if you felt the battle was uneven, being ( 2 vs 1 ), leaving the battle would not be a cop out.:facepalm:

I clearly said " if your getting rolled " by the unfair team, :( you might want to consider going back to hanger.:B

If you want to stick around and give them a moving target to shoot at,:playing:  well that's your call.

Every battle in the sky is different, and not every battle can be won by you staying in it.

So use my motto... " Live to fight another Day " , choose another plane and get back into another battle.:coin:

Ps. remember what I said,"  only use it when your team is getting rolled "

OK.  Quitting is an option for you.  I understand and believe it is your choice.  No criticism there.

 

I will not quit, regardless of the odds.

Shortly after the server reset I had one where my team was me and another player, not flighted vs all bots.

That was something neither of us had seen before.

How long before it's just one human per game?

Would that make it a single player game then?

Yeah, but that doesn't do anything except guarantee the loss and further reduces your personal points and all that stuff.  It's a cure that's worse than disease, hence no cure at all, except perhaps for one's ego.

Yes, it's haughty and its arrogant but you're a battleship with 16 inch guns and Britannia Rules the Waves.  Maybe a bit of arrogance in this case is appropriate.

Well the question was 2 vs 1, that being said...leaving the battle hurts nobody,:hiding: those 2 players will still be rolling bases and battling the bots. :playing:

Unless they made changes on the last update, you will be awarded any points and credit you earned before leaving, ( minus a 1000 points ) for not finishing the round.:great:

2 vs1, puts the odds in their favor, and honestly....your wasting good playing time, where in the end.....your going to still be given a loss.:facepalm:

Theirs really nothing wrong with leaving an unbalanced battle, unless you enjoy playing against the odds.:ohmy:

Everyone here is given a choice when Wowp puts together 2 teams in a battle," Stay & Dogfight "or just " Cut & Run to Fight another Day ".:coin:

Ps. You do know.... if your plane is destroyed... " after the squall line " you can go back to the hanger, with no penalty....:medal:

Never quit. Always try. I know that feeling you get when you know you are going to lose. But Always fly.  :sceptic:

Unless there is an issue other than losing by all means I agree.

Staying in the game and finishing a match is at least worth 1000 personal points.

 

I can not remember how many games I have lost but was still able to collect enough points or

to gain enough XP or Medals .

And XP can easily get you to the next plane.

I never leave, even when it is impossible to win.  This is a GAME, and you never really die, and nothing is really lost if you do quit.  I always stay to learn to fly better.  I may try a new (to me) tactic or something, or I may fly right at the flighted pair with a plan in mind.  Mostly I stay just to practice flying and get a few more exp points and the like.  It is never non productive to stay and fight.
