I just played a match in my Hs 129 A. On my team (flighted) I had "DarthMazur2" and "DarthMazur7" the later left the match at the start. On the red team they had "DarthMazur3" and "DarthMazur8" (flighted). DarthMazur8 left at the begining as well. Both flights had P-12 and BF110B's. The 2 Darths that stayed in game only had an hour and a bit play time.  They almost won the match it was very close.  

 

When I looked at the stats the 2 that left the match had less then a minute on any aircraft.  The 2 that stayed had an hour and a half.  

 

Thought the powers at be would like to know.  I reported them in game.

Good catch.  Hopefully WG will shut THAT down quickly.  There is no question that is trying to game the system.

Anybody who splits a flight between Tier I and Tier IV is either dumber than I am or not well.

I agree that these shenanigans are some way trying to game the system.  I just can't figure out how.  please don't shoot me for saying shenanigans   :hiding:

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.

shoot you ? no.  Pistol whippings, otoh ... :izmena:


What sort of 'system gaming' is this supposed to achieve?  

Aside from split-tiering without an accomplice, what does this solve?   

obviously one is run by a human. what with the red Bf110 with 2 chevrons and 12090 pp. 
the rank one autoBOTs  are simple placeholders that drop out in seconds  

the Bf110 on the blue team however ... scored  1310 pp. 1000 of them came from finishing the game.  I imagine the 310 points were the damage the tail gunner did while it was farmed. 
Which is expected from an 'AFK' performance.  

So going to all this effort means you can have in any particular game
1) top tier placement
2) two enemy planes of your choosing that are a guaranteed afk.
3) 3 spots in the battle roster that are not taken up by any human competition for farming that xp. 

Its a very convoluted way to statpad ...  but if you have no friends; i guess it makes sense. 

fly toward enemy spawn.
shoot down the afks on the way (although the tier ones will get eaten by ada if you miss them)

 then spawn camp them for the remainder of the game ... 

Conveniently if you see him in a battle you can check how he earned his personal points that game.  So you can see which plane types he shot down and how many times he did it.  Looking which planes he scored his crits/fires on will tell you who got the bulk of his attention.  

And now that i think about it one can farm the kills/damage one needs for specialist or daily missions this way.   

Is this what happens when WoW gold farmers try to make accounts to sell?

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is much like my WinRate. Hit or Miss.

I think he figured out how to run 4 instances of the game.  He starts them all at the same time.  Leave the game with 2 and flys one while the other team has to less human players.  In theory he should get a better win rate.  Still its a lot of work for a better win rate.  He played this scheme a while longer he is up to 3.5 hours now.  His ID's are still active.

This is just one of many things that occur which are unexplainable. I think the booster curse and Premium nerf are real. I think when you first sign-up your win rate range is "assigned". I think I see team score boards that no one could explain why one side won. I think software like easy cheat would sound alarms every battle. I think I hate bots. I think too much.

Not necessarily 4 physical computers ... he could use 'virtual machines'.

Using software like Virtual PC or VMware (or in Linux) you can run 4 instances of Windows on 1 machine. You could then install Wowp on each and play simultaneously using different accounts.
