****Three friends and I pulled a long New Years Eve "hotseat" game on Coral Sea, taking turns (three deaths each) flying. We pulled off many crazy Rambo stunts like landing the plane on the enemy carrier deck and raising hell from the ammo crate 'til gunned down in a blaze of glory. We even spent some time on a "berzerker" server where just to live long enough to get a plane off your own deck without getting TKed was an accomplishment. I hate TKers, but seeing 10 guys blast each other to get at a plane and then when one person does get in one, all the berzerkers left on deck only quit TKing each other to concentrate fire on the plane trying to take off....then once it flames into the sea, they go straight back to wasting each other to get at the newly spawning planes....I was ROFL at the stupitity! (Maybe it was all the liquor, though).

****My question is....Why cant the carriers be moved during the game? Dont you think this would make the game a bit more interesting? As it is now, everyone knows EXACTLY where the enemy carrier is and can fly straight to to every time.

****My other question....I cannot figure out how in the hell to drop TORPEDOES. The torpedoe planes drop two regular bombs instead every time. Is there some way to select "torpedoes"?

****One more thing....At one point during a game I heard my teamates screaming for people to repair our ship. Well, I spawned as an engineer, wrenched my shit to zero....then sat and waited for my wrench to re-up. The ship was damaged so badly that I just couldnt wait that long. So I suicided, respwned with a fresh wrench, and kept fixin'. I did this several times til the ship was full-up. Now is that "cheating", or just "take one for the team" self sacrifice?

****Seems to me, though, that if EVERYONE on the team would just spawn as an engineer, wrench on the deck EVERY time before grabbing a plane, your team would be pretty hard to beat....

****Well...back to the front!

there are no torpedo planes in coral sea, only dive-bombers

Why did you put **** before every paragraph? That's a little odd to me. Anyway, rambo is cool. :agreed: Since in battlefield 1942, you can do like ANYTHING, it's really nice trying to pull off tank/person/plane stunts... :) me > :love: < bf1942

In the case of torpedo bombing, just fly really low to the water and drop the trop into the water shortly before the submarine,carrier,destroyer,battleship and it should hit the target on the side.

No don't do that, torpedoes do barely any damage when used as a bomb.
