i fly online 95% of the time

i have had lots of air collisions with other fighters since ive been playing FB
basically they suck , i try to avoid them at all cost but when they happen ......

ONE PLANE CAN FLY AWAY UNHARMED or so it seems

this happens 75% of the time
in tracks ive watched planes cut right thru other planes wings , tails ect & come away UNSCATHED

this is really gay

and then theres ppl who type to you " ~S~ " when all they did is not get hurt when their plane sliced off your wing

in no way will i ever believe this would happen IRL
not with one plane being able to fly away unscathed

This is exactly what happened to me when I was flying tonight. Check my other post:

Well, it happens. Probably happened in real life too.

I've had this happen numerous times. Very annoying because it could never happen like it does in FB. When the leading edges of two fighter wings collide, debris should result. We'll have to see how it handles after the patch.

Sometimes with some aircraft it might happen....but its a jackpot probability....the only senario i can think is if you have wooden wings and you hit a metal tail....but still. the problem is with the Damage model. maybe it schould get more acurate, but where can they stop? then we might ask that on slight touch wings wont trash.....

anyways to make a long story short...they schould think about it and if they can do it chainge it. it only get dusterbing when ppl do it on purpouse.

There are 10 kinds of people in this world: those who can count in binary, and those who can't.

It's set up that way to discourage team kills by ramming. It's not set up well, but IIRC that was the reasoning behind it.

Happens too often just yesterday .
I said "nice crash" . He said "I am still flying" .

I believe the patch will change it .
