hey all. never had this happen to me till tonight.



1. i was flying on warclouds, sank 2 ships, then came back to base. i over shot the runway, and had aircraft finally stop in a river. i am not wounded, nor was my aircraft stricken at all. majority of aircrat is still above water. i press refly. recieve "GAU-8 WAS KILLED" message.

2. after that refly, i sink 2 more ships, but aircraft recieves damage, and i go in the drink. i am not injusred nor did my aircraft explode. i bail and "swim"for a few seconds. ....the following message says "GAU-8 escapes from being prisoner" or whatever... when i press refly, i got "GAU-8 KILLED BY AAA FIRE"

anyone else notice these new watery deaths..for no reason? have 2 track to verify as well if needed, or interested

ok went to photobucket.. hope they ain too large..

messages at top, and time at bottom say it all i guess.

I've seen this before, it's been around since before AEP. It's nothing more than a badly worded message, when it says "Player has been killed by a ship gunner", it really means "was shot down by a ship gunner" (FB doesn't care that it was really pilot error that resulted in AC crashing not the flak damage). Also, there is a scoring bug related to flak. If an AC takes any damage from flak, even if the AC is still perfectly flyable, you could go and shoot both wings off and not get "Enemy Aircraft: Destroyed", and therefore no points, although you will see the message in chat that you shot down the AC.

im not too worried about the points, or scoring.. it just that i lost 2 pilots, and got kicked because of "pilot death".. when i was alive.. premature death.. not good
