Grahf, you've got a point there. I should've specified on my part that while I think this IS an "exploit", I don't think it's really wrong to use it. It's one of the less harmful ones in any case, and in general doesn't affect gameplay much. It's worse to use the AT aim bug, and I use that one too :uhm:

It is something you should be prepared for.

Of course if the Devs give us an Eastern Front map with Soviet Paratroops don't expect to actually have a parachute. Low n Slow then fall into snowdrifts was the practice I believe.

Hehe, this is old news. I have a clanmate that never uses the chute in vanilla when he switches vehicles, takes too long time he used to say (although sometimes it ends with a splat though). This thread though gives me the impression of that there are two kinds of players: The one that gets frustrated for getting beaten, but gives credit to his opponent for showing skill and situational awareness and learns from the experience to be able to avoid getting killed in the same way again. And the one who gets frustrated by getting killed and cope with it by crying bloody murder and call it foul play. (*cough*whiner*cough*) :) PS. It demands very specific circumstances to be able to avoid getting shot down without a chute, even if you are good.

You get in a mindset that you cover all your bases, then someone goes and pulls some completely unrealistic and improbable action like that, and it pisses you off. Its not because you LOST, but because you shot him down and he should have been dead, but instead he is alive and killing you.. BECAUSE you shot him down. Which is of course absurd.

Well maybe he landed in a haystack, or whatnot. Point is, if there is no killmessage/deathmessage he didn't die. And if you ignore that crucial information and get killed when he sneaks up on you, you are to blame. Not his 'cheating' mindset... meh

I did the same thing in the desert lvl with the B25. I was axis and I just flew over the allied base and coincidentally there was an empty B25, so I took my chance and let myself fall right into the B25... The allies were either shocked or didn't realize why they couldn't enter their plane :talker:

I nail the aircraft, it crashed near the flag and he doesn't die. So I'm thinking he bailed at the last minute. All of a sudden, my guys start getting wasted by him with a Thompson. He kills me, takes the flag, and the allies win the game.

i know bailing safely at low altitudes is possible! i love to do this in ctf mode. but the rest sounds like some cheat. however the thompson is a very good weapon. i love it in infantry combat. the weapon is deadly in the hands of some1 who really knows how to use it. maybe he just lucked out.

Well FH is not 100% realistic so it's a legimate tactic but it's hard thing to do.. I did a few times though :)

Hey guys, no one is whining here. I just wanted to get the group's concensus on the tactic. Some obviously see nothing wrong with it, while others feel differently. If I was whining, I would be screaming that he was hacking and that something should be done about it immediately. Neither of which I did.

Like I said, I'll even try the move myself next time I'm in that situation.
