Playing on-line last night on a Ubi server - I was getting worked over pretty well and thought it must be an off day, climbing steeply in 109G10 when I saw a P11 CATCHING me! - quit that server. Everyone says theres no cheating in FB - everything odd is down to lag.
Playing on-line this afternoon my 109G14 with gun-pods head to head with FW190 - perfect sight - let rip with everything, not one hit, half second blast from 190 my engine stops, ALL control cables cut, no rudder, no ailerons, no elevators! NO OTHER DAMAGE! I'm thinking what crap is this?
Allowing for lag, my fighting skills (I do very well offline) and a 56k connection, the on-line experience is for me often exasperating and baffling. Don't tell me to learn how to fly etc. I'm pretty good really, if lag really is responsible for everything it's an aspect which needs looking at. The 109 damage model is a mystery all its own, being caught in a climb by a P11! You tell me.
Don't think I'll bother on-line anymore, at least until the 109's get fixed.


Tedious unoriginal philosophical statement the pith of which is lost in repetition.

With the exception of your 56k connection, which is most probably the cause for your troubles flying online, there´s a German saying that goes like this:

"Wenn der Bauer nicht schwimmen kann, ist die Badehose schuld"

"If the farmer can´t swim, it must be the fault of his bathing suit"

Just a tiny little bit of humorous pun intended /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Did the P-11 have altitude and energy advantage? You didn't mention that, which leads me to beleive you didn't notice until you looked back and saw him, where you assumed you should be pulling away from him, but what was your energy state?

Your 56k will bugger up quite a bit for you online. Yes I've gone head to head many times in a 109 giving little to no damage, while receiving plenty. The damage model is screwed up and getting fixed in the next patch.
