By now, everyone even passingly familiar with online missions knows that you should never pull onto the taxiway to take off ahead of your team. This will cause AI planes behind the Taxiway Idiot to takeoff and ram the planes ahead of him.

This happened again last night in a mission. The laughable thing was that the idiot responsible was saying that doing this did not have any effect on the AI!

Fortunately, we didn't lose any planes on the ground to the putz but his actions completely disrupted any chance of our getting the group organized in any manner. We ended up with the He-111's scattered and the F4's trying to get in position to assist them. I found a group of bombers homebound but got blindsided by a Yak. Fortunately, I dragged him to the deck, effectively pulling him out of the fight, got over friendly territory and bailed.

Then Mr. Taxiway Idiot tried to cover his pathetic performance (he took off, flew around, and landed without doing squat) by taking about me taking an F4 against AF planes. What that nonsense was about, who knows? I really don't expect any intellectual honesty from a hose-head like this!

Annoying for sure. There are times when that is ok though. Like in some VEF missions your base will be attacked by enemy fighters while you are taking off, so you must get up in a hurry. If there is a human pilot behind you then jumping out of line has no effect. But if an AI is behind you and a human is infront of you, then there will be problems.

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.</center>
