I just expect things like this to happen...  Doesn't stop me from loving flying, but it's been bugzilla all along.

That's just the usual hitboxes turning off problem. Our best guess is that either the enemy's hitbox is not in-sync with what you see, or the game can't handle all the bullets flying around and has an existential crisis. We call this phenomenon "Sparkles" due to the hitmarker sparkles that you see despite no registered damage. It only seems to get worse with time, and ADAs in particular are notorious for "turning off their hitboxes" at crucial times :bajan:


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

The game seems pretty flakey tonight. Lots of black screens and being kicked out of battle.  Reset all internet connections, but still seeing random stuff pop up.  

 

In other words: typical weekend at WOWP.

Had one battle in particular where the ADAs just were not taking damage, worse than their near-invulnerability after Squall Line but it was in first 1/4 of the battle.

Other battles basically ok.

the difference is that I am actually a good fighter pilot and don't need to make excuses. if I was a beloow average pilot who didnt average over 10 k you might have a point

That does explain a LOT, a few times now I wondered how the hell an ada didnt die when I put my guns on it for a long time, I thoughtj maybe my aim was off or somethjjing, but I did see the flashes on the enemy

I appreciate that Trikke, I think I am pretty good, but I have a long way to go before I get where I want to be. thats why I love saturday nights, flying with better pilots makes you up your game. in the regular game if there are good pilots most people just avoid them. I try to find them , its the only way to learn and saturday nights really show you quickly if you can hang with better pilots.

He's okay.  Mid-pack player at best.  A majority LF pilot who doesn't fly any kind of aircraft that are a significant challenge to do well in.  If all I did was only fly my most favorite planes, and had a better player as a flight mate for most of my battles, I'm sure I could get my win rate well above 70%.  But that would be BORING.  Heck, I could run bomber escort for Zig or Prenz and ride 85%+ WR from here on.  

 

And..

 

I didn't WANT to do it - I felt I OWED it to him.

You really are a [edited], I actually fly multiroles a lot more than lights, my most used plane by a large margin is the s199. I have been speccing pretty much everything and will update my list today, Deepfry is better than you as well, but he is not better than me.  if I am a mid pack player at best that would make you a lower tier pliot at best, given I am far better than you are in almost everything. you make these grandiose proclamations without bothering to even look at stats, anyone here can go see what I fly and see that your not even 1 percent higher winrate, along with the fact that I do more damage and kill more enemies while dying less, would suggest I am in fact far better than you.

The irony is LOL.

 

Maybe if you were as good as you think you are, you'd just shut up and let your gameplay speak for itself.

 

Maybe you don't  get it yet, but I'll make it clearer for you.  I play the music, and you dance.  That's why people are laughing at you.

Of course I won.  But rubbing it in is how this forum game thing works.  I learned that from ACE.
