Okay, how bout this. If you can blow up the plane before I get out, you get the kill. If not, TRY and hit me on the way down if you can.
I ask no quarter and give none. Nobody gets a freebie.
Lol..... well, not being pilot myself I can't comment on dog-fighting..
BUT..... put me on an AA-Gun and ... whooop whooop.... I'm having a blast. However, it does fry your azz when you smoke a plane and watch the pilot bail-out...... right into the middle of all the Smacktards standing around the Hangar shooting at each other, and one of the ST's get the kill! :furious:
But I was roflmao when I watched a pilot bail and drop 2 'nades into the crowd... dam-near killing all the ST's that were too busy being SmackTardish....:bows:
If only I had a screen shot of that, to look at when I get frustrated.
Originally posted by takiwa I have more respect for other good pilots to bail...that's the whole point. It's not easy to shoot down another plane in a dogfight with a good pilot (probably the hardest aspect of this game).
I agree with you whole heartedly about it being one of the most difficult aspects of the game but doing enough damage to a plane to force the pilot to eject makes that a KILL. Your argument strikes me as a little hypocritical when you say "what's one ticket when most servers are 300." Killing the pilot in the plane only serves to boost your score while making that pilot combat ineffective helps the team even if he suicides as soon as he hits the water. He'll still have to wait to respawn and he'll have to wait for a new plane. A lot can happen on the battlefield while he's out of the action.
As far as respect goes, I have the upmost respect for ANYBODY who can climb into an aircraft and engage in combat with another pilot. If they bail, then I salute them for a good fight and I look forward to tangling with them again very soon.
Remember, the Japanese felt the same way about bailing out that you do and they lost the war AND sacrificed too many of their young men for a misguided sence of glory.
This thread is laughable! The thread starter seems to only be venting frustration at feeling robbed of his hard earned points. Listen mate, you got your kill. When the plane hits the ground, that's your kill. You have just succesfully whooped ass! (In a plane, no doubt! Tank and sniper/camper shots are easy) I have been flying Combat Flight sims for years now, and I can attest to the fact that dogfighting is very difficult. BF1942 plane physics are nowhere near reality, so this makes dogfighting even harder. And besides, points don't really matter. Your REPUTATION does! If you are as good as you say you are, people will take notice. So just remember, when the opposing plane starts burning, that's another downed plane for you. And anyways, if you want to kill the pilot, pull a "Split S" and nail his monkey ass!! It's alot easier than you think.
this game IS going to shit because ur complaining about things like this! it doesnt matter how many points u get it matters the ur team wins and that u get the plane out ofr the sky so it doesnt threaten ur team anymore...just grow up

People who complain and whine about Bailers=Pussies
As far as I knew, this was the Rants and Raves section, which means you don't have to agree with what I was saying for ME to have a problem with it...so I will continue to b|tch if I want to, about something that none of you can make any more right or wrong.
And wannbeatle and embrel23, both of you are pussies for not even signing on this forum with your playing names :lol: you must suck ass pretty bad...neither one of those names is even found at BFStats, so whose really the pussified little bitches here? I'm in the top 17% for shooting down bailing asswipes just like you, who can't even sign on with their playing name (and if that is your playing names, then both of you SUCK ASS!)
This shouldn't have gotten personal, but since I can't express a Rant in the right section of these forums w/o having some little ass licking ***s tell me how ****ed up I am for thinking that way....BRING IT ON!
At least I'm ranked...
People who ain't shit or ranked=pussies END
So now we are supposed to have more respect for you because you're ranked? I'm ranked as well and so are the people I play with (including one who is currently in the top 9%...look up Dry Heave) and non of that makes any difference because we are all there to play a game and have fun. I imagine that Wannabeatle and Embrel23 are ranked as well but, like me, don't measure their manhood based on BFSTATS.
Like I said in my previous post, I respect the fact that you get in a plane and fly ACM, but I have zero respect for you if you're only doing it to boost your personal score instead of helping your team.
