I vulch, chute-shoot, and don't salute. I have no shame in this. Anyone else think the "online honor" etiquette is a load of crapola? Face it, chivalry died with world war I.

The only time i've ever shot chutes, was in very close games where the 1 or two pilots lost by the enemy gave us the victory. But i guess you could still call me a chute shooter.

GK, is that Affleck quote accurate? I sure as hell hope note. I knew Pearl Harbor was bad, but THAT bad??

Anyway, I was playing a scripted mission once, and the enemy had 4 planes and 3 pilot left to our one plane and one pilot left. We had two P-40's in the air against three B-239's.

We shot down the first two with little difficulty ( we had time to get to altitude, B-239 doesn't do well against a high speed P-40.

Anyway, I lit the last B-239 on fire, right over his airbase. he bailed. My and the other warhawk both zoomed in and sprayed his chute. I felt justified.

I find shooting pilots under canopy to be distasteful. But I don't have a problem w/ those who choose to do so. nobody knew how to play right when I was a kid either. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

There's a flaw in your logic here...do you see it? Let me help you out..."online honor" is between people who are (probably) at peace enjoying a very good sim - a matter of courtesy between players is not so hard to muster.
Chivalry did die during WWI but it was real life!!!

Its a Game! they are not people they are 1s and 0s
thats it. if you take it seriously and think that you are killing a person not a pixel, we should be worried. besides peolpe think shooting a shoot is a moral injustice but they have no issue dropping a 5000# on a base near a city blasting little virtual children out of thier beds at night!

I`ll shoot enemy guys puffing smoke, dropping gears, waggling wings, typing `please don`t shoot me!`, and hanging out the washing.

But I`ll NEVER shoot guys hanging in their chute whether Human OR AI. It just me I guess, there must be a bit of evil HONOUR still stuck in my brain somewhere.... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Hi,

I only shoot chutes if the pilot is of a particular nationality....because it winds them up enough to make it truly worthwhile.

Such a waste of ammo, with a lucky shot it can mean downing another plane. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

Just keep them hanging there and let the enemy assume its an enemy plane. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Does it really matter if you get shot in the chute? You're already out of your aircraft, meaning that you probably just lost the fight anyhow, so how does getting killed in the chute change the outcome? Humiliating perhaps?

The only time I'll shoot a parachute is in a scripted server when we are trying to kill all the enemy pilots/planes. Outside of that, its a no no in my book.

I've shot plenty of AI chutes - especially the annoying bugger in the Lagg-3 who somehow managed to stay with my 190 in a 600kph dash.

I've flown through briges, houses, landed upside down in a football stadium (nearly on the penalty spot actually) rammed a freefalling pilot in mid air (biiig explosion) Dropped clusterbombs and torpedos on enemy bombers, done mach 1 in dives, rammed opponents, collided with my downed opponent, accompanied my mistel to its target (just to see what it was like) kamikazeed into ships, houses, churches, factories, forts, etc etc etc

Cos its not real http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

But on-line, it IS real.
