Giving someone the sense of having a wingman and not being able to help him if he gets in trouble.....yeah, great idea!

Why not carry ammo and not shoot if you don't have to? At least you will have ammo if the poor soul you decide to wing with gets in trouble.

im a lone wolve but whats annoying of my attitude i guess is flying at 10 m of a foe while a team mate behind is trying to shoot the foe without hitting me

anyway i also help my team taking down high bogeys

im not a team man i see not why i should prefer a blue than a red to go down, i like both colors, and both your team losing or winning has its advantages and disadvantages

I've tried to fly in formation with foes on several occasions, none has been very cooperative. They usually don't like me on their wing, I'd compare it with holding onto a cat while brushing it's teeth.

raaaid go buy FSX.

Or join a flying stunt team.

Otherwise your a hinderance in the field of battle.

To nothing is more embarrising than to of been flying an aircraft, empty and accidently spawn that way in battle.

I did one time manage to sneak up on somebody and take postion on his wing, slightly behind and below, and fly there a while when I was in a Dora and he was in a Spitfire. On a no-externals server of course.

Why did I do it? Well, I had had a couple of beers and thought it was funny. I stayed there for maybe 30 seconds before he looked around and saw me.

Shortly afterwards he shot me down. It was still funny, to me.

Not very nice? Pretend the person flying the plane in your gunsight has just disagreed with one of your physics theories. Then you should have no reservations about shooting them down. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I did once accidentally fly in formation with 4 109s online. This was in my early days of training. It was funny and scary. I remember calling back on comms, "Er, guys I`m in formation with 4 109s - come help before they see me!"

I also went online without ammo once, but it was a mistake swiftly rectified.

Respectfully. Buying a combat sim and flying around with no ammo makes no doubt as much sense to you as buying condoms and leaving them in the cabinet.
I have a question for you raaaaid, and that is why do your English typing skills vary from post to post?

I do it all the time when I play online. I go to the enemy base, turn on all my lights and wingtip smoke and do aerobatics while dodging the flak. Tons of fun and most folks laugh and leave you alone. Some knewbs try to take off and fire at me but I usually outfly them. Definitely something fun to do when you're bored.

He's been asked that before with no response. On one occasion he was totally coherent and hit 100% (or at least close to 100%) on grammar. If it wasn't for the fact that he has posted similar statements across multiple boards before he showed up here I'd be 100% certain it was Oleg. As it is I think it's 50/50 that he's Oleg.
