you've all seen him- most have laughed at him. The guy that every time he scores a kill he lands to grab that silly 100 points. Thats weak enough right?

How about the guy that does this- constantly-and-no matter how many enemies are on his six- he turns for the nearest base drops flaps and gear- and cries bloody murder when he rightfully gets his butt shot off?

Here's to the guys out there that fly the living crap out of their planes- and return home on fumes, so many holes in their glass it may as well be a screen, and more kills than bullets left in their magazines.

Get a tactical advantage, hit hard, get tactical advantage again. When I hit less than 1/4 tank, I'm heading home. Regardless of the amount of ammo o condition of my plane. But that's just me.

i'll do that with my Ju87. After i drop the eggs, i'll head to homebase and land (if safe to land).

No point for a Ju87 strafing ground with it's useless MG. I rather return base and reload my 500kg SC bomb.

I generally take off with a 1/4 tank.

For dogfight servers. In the P-57 or P-51. Heh. I still outrange just about everything else in the skies.

That said, I don't love flying the jug because I never take damage. Heh. Nothing beats pulling a Robert Johnson and landing a jug that contains the entire ammo load of an enemy aircraft, especially if you managed to reutn the favor and that enemy couldn't hold his bullets as well as you can. heheheheheheheHAHAHAHA!


I was flying Bf-110G-2 on a server today. I treeleveled to the enemy base, unnoticed. Dropped my two bombs in front of a taking off mustang, the delay was perfect, and I got that kill. Another mustang had just lifted off and tried to come straight up at me (i was doing 500+km/h. he stalled out and I dove after him (figuring, what the hell, if I don't kill him he will get me now or on my way back to base). I landed a few 108 rounds on him and either killed the pilot or his controls, as the plane went dead and crashed.

Then I went back to the airfeild. The guy I bombed had respawned, but I don't do repeat kills and another guy was starting his engine. I introduced him to Mr. Mk.108 and then bugged out for home. I didn't stick around. I had ammo. I had gas. I had three kills. But I knew I was dead as soon as a stang got in the air long enough to get decent alt/speed, and I think my Bf-110G-2 had made its point quite nicely. I killed all three of the pilots flying from that base in the space of 2 minutes.

I don't know, if I just shot a guy down, there's no fight to be had nearby and I happen to be near a friendly base, I'm going to land. I like going into a fight with as much ammo as poss. so I'll reload. Couldn't give a sh*t about pts though - I'd do the same if there weren't any.

But yes, I've seen weenies like that. I just shake my head and briefly wonder what they're trying to compensate for. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Many, many, many times I have flown on a server and after 1-2 hours have ended up with 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 points!

Why? Cos I refuse to rush back to base to grab that dumd 100 points. If I see a friendly in trouble, I`ll turn to help him. If I have plenty of ammo i`ll prowl around a bit to see what`s happening.

The only time I`ll RTB is if I`m VERY low on ammo, VERY low on fuel(enough to get home), or busted up.

This means on DF servers I`ll often get caught and shot down or often crashland. The biggest problem is that you help others and they call for `back-up`, but they never tend to return the favour.

And I DO notice those `point *****s` who RTB straight after one kill.

Guys,

What's the deal with dropping flaps and gear? I always fly a BF109K-4 or G-6, and if I get caught without enough energy by a BnZ, I sometimes drop everything to try to get an overshoot.

Having said that, I'm hardly qualified to comment - I've been on-line for about 2 months, and I've only landed twice and only ran out of fuel once. Other pilots' bullets seem to constitute my standard flight endings!

I did score 40 points once, though, although I still don't know how or why.

SeaFireLIV
04-16-2004, 05:23 AM
There are TWO meanings when dropping flaps and gears. The first is in a VERY desperate attempt to make a chasing enemy on your six overshoot. Sometimes it works. Often it doesn`t if they know what they`re doing, use sparingly.

The 2nd is the weak `I`m landing, please don`t kill me` crap. Where the same method is by some strange unspoken theory meant to keep you alive.
This type of thing is strictly down to the decision of the attacker in my opinion and the `victim` should just take it if he still gets shot down.

Your forty points were probably for 4 kills, (or maybe you shot a bomber down) but you never made it back to base. If you had you would have gained 400, but for me, the points are NOT important.

I agree with WhiskeyRiver....drop flaps and gear in front of me and I'll finish the job that much easier. About the only target I won't usually attack is a plane taking off....but that depends on the situation. I'm no vulcher(strafer) and don't care for it sometimes but it's part of the game if allowed. Deal with it. Many times have I diverted from a landing to help another pilot in trouble even tho I may not make it back safe.

If Ive got to go, I would rather land anywhere than crash or bail out unnecessarily. I don`t care about points only Kills, But making it hard for pilots trying to kill you is also very satisfying.

I have much the same experience SeaFire. I generally RTB if I've expended most of my ammo, been shot up, or I'm low/leaking fuel. Even then, if a allie is in trouble (if he calls or not) I try and put that last few rounds of fire into his persuer. I get shot down alot doing this http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

As for the guy who drops his flaps and tries to land at the nearest runway...although I do try and observe the gentemenly behavior (the whole RAF approach) this is different. My suggestion: If you've just had a pitched fight with the guy and he's going to be a coward and try and land in the middle of a fight...blast him away.

I don't normally take out guys on landing approach or on takeoff (except in dire circumstances) but if they want to risk it in the middle of combat...show them what happens when they do.

I generally fly the He111, TB-3, Stuka or IL2 online. Crying you are out of ammo or dropping your flaps and gear means nothing to me.

In my Stuka I'm going to try my best to sneak in, drop my bomb and run for home without you seeing me. In the He111 I'll fly an odd pattern to approach a target and hopefully blow the hell out of it before you find me.

If you find me then do your damndest to kill me. If I'm landing, feel free to strafe, ram, shoot rocket, bomb or whatever you think is necessary to bring me down.

If I just spawned and you are strafing the air field you'd better shoot me because if I get the chance to shoot back I'll do my best to shoot you down.

I won't whine if you blow me to smithereens in any of those conditions.

All I ask is that if I am bringing in a TB-3 with 2 engines gone and 1 smoking, and you come flying in for the final blow before I touchdown, and one of my gunners pops your melon with a sniper shot....shut the hell up--I don't want to hear your whining either. ;-)

SeaFire,

Agree about points - trust me when I say that they become increasingly irrelevant when you can't score any! I've never shot down 4 planes in 1 session, so it must have been a bomber, and probably by sheer fluke.

I suppose it reflects reality - most pilots relied on teamwork in sections, flights and squadrons, whereas some preferred to go alone, stay up high and pounce on unwitting stragglers or tail-enders. But perhaps that was probably more WW1.

Each to their own - we all have our own ways of having fun, and it does make the DF servers varied and interesting, and if points for points' sake is your bag, then it's up to others like us to work (together) to make it damned difficult to earn 'em.

I love points and I'll take as many as I can get. It is an indication of how well I am doing - the more points I get, the less times I've died. I won't just circle my own base waiting for the enemy but I'll go to wherever the action is, in full real I usually end up miles away from anywhere anyway.

DF servers are unrealistic as planes are constantly spawning (this is an observation, not a complaint) so if you get the chance to land, take it. Likewise, if you take your chance and someone shoots you down on finals, well thats just tough.

Just think, in this game you get more of a chance/opportunity to shoot something down, or to get shot down, than in real life and points show how well you're doing.

This thread is like saying people should use real world tactics but with a game world "ah-hah we're all fighter pilots together" mentality that says stay up until you are a) out of ammo, b) out of fuel, or c) shot down/damaged. I'd rather land with a pristine plane and some ammo left after shooting down some enemy.

Some of you have missed part of my point- let me clarify. I have no problem with you landing your kill -WHEN IT IS SAFE-. It is foolhardy to try to land when either a) engaged (no i don't mean engaged to be married) or b) there's somebody on your six. or c) theres enemy inbound
If you have ammo- defend yourself.
The topper is the guy that does this and screams that they got vulched when you show him the error of his ways http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

Personally I prefer to land with 4 bullets left in the magazine, and 6 kills chalked up- rather than land 6 times to "score" six kills.

You've all seen this- the guy lands every 5 minutes- many times you see him with his wheels down more than up.

Amen, Stig.

But, as I often say, any resemblance between a DF arena and real air combat is purely coincidental.

When I flew WarBirds/Dawn of Aces (which are like immense DF arena and I don't fly DF because I burned out on that nonsense) all of your kills were counted toward your squad total. At the end of every tour of duty (usually three weeks) the best squad was picked based on top total score.

In Dawn of Aces, it was a cardinal rule in the Black Lions (and we ruled DoA for many years) to "Land Your Kill!"

IF I flew DF (and I did when I first started flying IL-2) I still always landed my kills. I don't consider that score-whoring, just common sense.

This fly-die-respawn-fly-die-etc. mentality is nonsense. I grew out of that silly stuff long ago.

See ya in the Coops if you want to fly realistic missions.

Note my last paragraph on my original post:


"Here's to the guys out there that fly the living crap out of their planes- and return home on fumes, so many holes in their glass it may as well be a screen, and more kills than bullets left in their magazines."

Key words- return home? I never said anything about flying and DYING.

Tully gets it " I'll try to land and refit as often as the tactical situation allows"- key being the latter part of the sentence. If I'm on your six- the tactical situation definitely does not allow it- hehe.


I ALWAYS take enough fuel for a 45 minute flight. I think its a waste of time to land ONE kill, when I have plenty of fuel, plane, and ammo left.

Stiglr what about my point about the guy that thinks its his god given right to land JUST because he bagged a kill- REGARDLESS of whether its safe or wise to do so? Thats the breed i'm referring to.

04-16-2004, 01:27 PM
Actually, it is his God-given right, especially in an arena where it's every-man-for-himself (unless you're flying with squaddies, which most aren't).

Again, you're in Fantasy Land in the DFs. If a guy wants to land his kill, he can land his kill. Nothing dishonorable about it.

LOL S!

Personally I dont see any reason to let a plane land at all. Vulching planes on the runway is weak becuase they are defenseless. A plane in the air is hardly defenseless, even if hes shot up. If hes landing becuase he doesnt know there are enemy AC in the area, screw him, he needs better SA.

As far as the original post about people landing when they know someone is on thier six, and then complaining about it? All I can say is there are a lot of idiots out there... Pay no mind...

Well, I RTB, but then I fly bombers, bomber/fighters most the time. When I do get in a DF I usually get shot down.(still practicing dogfighting). But when Im in the air I do try to help any of my allies, I always make sure I run out of bullets before I return to base. I had one instance with my squad where I was flying a 110, my buddy had 2 P51 on his six. I dropped my bombs(couldnt find target) and got 1 51 smoking and the other broke off. I chased the smoking 51 until he was almost done for but another squad mate accidently hit me while diving on the 51 also(he though I was smoking) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. My other squad mate in his 110 made it alittle further but another 51 found him. Usually I get alt. and hang out over a fight waiting for an opportunity or if anybody needs help. Of course the reverse never happens sometimes, Oh well.

Wow, I didn't know there were "points." Maybe I should read that... uhh, what's it called... you know, that set of pages bound into a volume... useful for starting fires???

Ah, right, the manual. That's it.

Basically, all I do is go on to mess around. I find it much more exciting to fly around practicing with folks without any concern for "points" or whatever.

Having said that, I'm hardly qualified to comment - I've been on-line for about 2 months, and I've only landed twice and only ran out of fuel once. Other pilots' bullets seem to constitute my standard flight endings!

I did score 40 points once, though, although I still don't know how or why.

Jeez, sometimes I forget how steep of a learning curve this sim has. You fly it thousands and thousands of times, and it becomes second nature... I really feel for those guys just starting. On the other hand, I don't even remember the learning process to well anymore, so I guess it was fun the whole time http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

What good are points?
you fly for 2 hours,press disconnect and bye bye points http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'd rather enjoy myself. But like tully in a scripted Doghfight I'll fight with e verything i have but I'll run to base if I'm damaged to badly.
in a normal Doghfight I think I score 3 kills and get shot down 6 times for that http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I just play for pure fun,except VOW's http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif then it's serius

But remember it's a game nothing else http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
So relax,have fun
