For me its the good old take off across the runways and taxiway without looking where the fark they are going trick. I hate it when I'm on my takeoff or landing run and some dumb ars takes off crossing right in front of me and I collide with them. It ticks me off even more when I get points taken away after a good three kill run. Next on the list are the team killers. Third are the kill stealers.

the "I dont like that you shot me fair and square so i'll run home and land, then sit there and not hit refly until you crash or land so as not to give you a measly 100 points" people. Its not like i'm a uber points monger, who needs points to prove his manhood, but still, its the priciple of it.

i dont like the guys that spend their time complaining about something that happened to them , when they could hit re-fly & get back into it like an adult

all their text they put up on onscreen can put your mind off the Dogfighting

i mean its not like mistakes will never happen just because i happened to join

its not like all people who get off on doing dumb stuff will suddenly log off just because i want to play & show up in a DF server

its not like people will stop vultching just because its lame

people need to learn to deal with it & hit re-fly

whining in general

played il2 now from beginning and man the whining goes on and on and on and on

vow and vef went lame for me cause of that,
and it were only noobs ( and general whiners ) that complained too much. STOP WHINING and try to outwit the enemy, if he has better plane, well run away , if he vulches: well its war

You shoulda made it a POLL would`ve been interesting.

1. Most annoying are people on the receiving end of enemy fire who just quit out! Disconnect- then return. (Not genuine disconnections).

2. Idiots who get impatient cos you`re taxiing properly and shoot you from behind, then type, "MOve!" Not actually happened to me yet, but another pilot. If they did that to me I`d wring their neck!

3. And whiners who get shot down then type forever moaning away. You ignore them, but like babies they go on and on until you leave.

4. Pilots who think that instantly dropping gears in a dogfight guarantees that I should let them live. Then moan when you shoot them down. Nope, not happening.

5. Noobs who shoot you in the chute. Not happened to me yet- but i`m always worried about it... But I was shot on the ground once as I ran from my plane. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Not a noob thing, a respawn right in front of you as you are rolling and cant stop- then awarded with neg points. Cant see anything around or in front of the P-47 without shaking the tail back and forth trying to get a peak and BOOOOM -respawn-

A noob thing "hey, my wheels were down"
yes.......two miles from base and dont land if you got someone shooting at your 6 the whole time!

Whining about someone whining, THATS the best, God knows thats 20% of this board. Arguing with the whiner the whole time convinced what YOU are doing is ok, and the whiner is wrong..pfffft

Hi,

Yep, the old chestnut of disconnecting really gets on my t*ts - you chase someone up to 5k+ and, when they realise that you are actually not going to give up, they disconnect.

The other one, of course, is when you are on someone's 6 and you have been peppering away at them so that they have just caught fire or smoking heavily....Next second, someone flies straight between you and the bandit, takes your bandit's wing off with one shot while you take the noob's wing off. They get your kill and you get -ve points.

Marvellous.

Cheers,
Norris

I realise it could just be survival, but I hate it when a FW jockey get jumped, hit hard and immediately starts flopping all over the sky like he's drunk and heads back towards his base while warping like the starship Enterprise.

It's not realistic and is only a way to exploit a flaw in the game.

That's happened to me. Fortunately only once, but it sure pulled the plug on my happy-thoughts. I couldn't believe what just happened.

Other than that I have to agree with all of the above. Oh, and people in general who don't cover teammates six and/or warn them.

(On a side note, when players drop their gear I try to pick them off. The landing gears that is. Plenty fun and they're guaranteed a surprise on landing although usually when I do get a shot in I tend to rip their wing off...)

Yesterday I took off in a 190 F8 with a 500lbs bomb and a whole bunch of rockets. The plane was pretty heavy and it slowly took off at full throttle with the take off flapps on.
Then at about 50 meters some idiot comes behind and shoots me down.
That's probably what I hate the most...

Ironically I do like it when people shoot at me when I'm about to land.
It feels good when you still got a little speed and then instantly shut off the engine,put the landing flaps and the pull out the landing gear. You lose 100 km/h instantly and then you see the guy behind you just pass you.

04-07-2004, 10:40 AM
Yea i hate the 190 flip flopping all the way back to base, it just really ticks me off because they end up warping all over the place and you can't get a shot in edgewise! Besides that no pilot would be able to keep that stuff up in real life. Thats why I think Oleg should implement the 190 head beating routine, where the head smashing against the canopy is modeled. That way they would beat themselves to death with each flip/flop!

I hate guys who seem like nice guys and fly as a wingy with you, they warn you about clearing your six when someone is attacking you etc. You think "wow that guy is a good team mate!"

The next day you meet him online you talk to him friendly and then he turns out to be a kill stealer. After being friendly to him I find it hard to yell abuse at him. I am actually surprised how many big names/good pilots actually resort to kill stealing, and noob takeoffs across the taxi ways etc.

I also hate guys who pop up with their MK 108 to take away your glory with a quick shot when you have been pumping 20mm for the last minute at your smoking target.

hehehe....just 2 more things I'd like to add:

1st you're on the runway in a "no outside views" COOP and the guy behind you decides that the runway infront of him has to be clear without looking first.

2nd a thing that happened to me 2 times in VEF so far *both times the same guy). I wait in line till the plane in front of me starts to roll. turn my plane and throttle up immediately but too late the guy behind me crashed into me. Me:"What was that?" Him:"you have to take off quicker!"

Hey, I notice there is alot of criticism of noobies here...but don't you remeber being a noobie once? Didn't you do all the same things they do? Everyone has to start somewhere don't they...and lets be honest about this...alot of the things they do they do to survive! There are a lot of very good pilots out there and it can be difficult just to take off sometimes! I was a noobie once and I admit to some of the above things! Be patient with these guys..you gotta start somewhere! If you find alot of noobies, goto a FR server...you don't find many there!
I often run a server on UBI just for noobies. It is very popular and is always full. The reason I run this server stems back to when I started playing online. I couldn't get a single kill...couldn't even get off the ground...so I started a noobie server so I could play against people of my own skill-level. Well, this way it didn't take me long to learn..now I'm much better and I regulary fly on FR servers, etc.
Now here is where my real rant begins. Why do all you 'professionals' feel you have to come onto my rookie server and do your target practice? What is the need for that? There is a long intro next to the map that suggests that the experienced should go elsewhere...but hey, what good does that do? People just get the crap shot out of them before they can even take off! Something I hate which is done by those players who think they are good is to hover around the enemy base and shoot people when their wheels leave the ground...after all this is technically not vulching is it?...not very sporting either!
There now, I've had my rant. Just remeber to be little more forgiving of those who are less experienced than you. You were like them once. You never know, one days these guys might save your bacon when you are in a sticky situation.

04-07-2004, 11:56 AM
Everybody probably at some point does all of the above but we're talking here in general in a nicely controlled server where the majority plays nice.

04-07-2004, 01:25 PM
Oh, I hate the guys that always scream "kill stealr" If its a team game and your teammate kills an enemy, tell him thanks. He just helped your team. Now if he cuts you off, or put some friendly fire in your butt because he was right behind you, thats a different story. But if you dont want teammates, play a 1 to 1, or get in a ffa. Or better yet, go back to counter strike.

The other is the guy or guys who like to belittle the "noob plane" someone is flying. If they dont like a specific plane, go to a game that has it restricted. I love it when they get shot down, its always a "noob" who did because he's flying the "uber" plane. Hey, if you want to fly something a little more challanging and something that takes more skill, thats great, i enjoy that too, I like learning the different planes and their specific traits, but i never insult someone because they choose another plane. Thats just plain rude. Even if it is a Frank. Big deal, just deal with it. I watched 2 guys go on and on about this guy on the other day. They spent more time whining and tossing insults about anyone who flys the super noober uber frank, then flying. If it bothered them that much, they should find a server that doesn't allow it. There are several now. I wish I could have just reached thru and slapped them. I just taxied a p38 into one of them on the ground, called him a noob for being in my way, and left. lol, I bet he had a few words about that. Hope he lost 200 of his precious points too.

Well put, Valentine. The thread title "stupid noob tricks" really is offensive and arrogant.

There are noobs and there are jerks.

If, in a Coop, a noob starts his engine with his throttle open, that's an honest mistake. We've all done it.

If, in a Coop, a noob jumps the line, he may not know any better.

But, if he starts his engine with the throttle open twice in a row or jumps the line twice in a row, he's a jerk.

We should be welcoming new people into this community, not putting them down.

Save your criticism (all of it valid http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif) for the jerks, not the new pilots.

It happens.

A was flying on Monday on a server that shall remain nameless, picked a Bf110 for some ground pounding action. Respawned after some fighter guy handed me my *** on a plate and spooled up engine number one.

Now I occaisonally monitor the instruments when I start up; I know it makes no difference in this sim, but it's an immersion thing. Anyway, I wait til number one settles down and spool up number two; all of a sudden I hear shots from the rear speakers and the impact of rounds hitting the plane; I have a quick look round the sky and no one's there.

What there is however is some idiot behind me who can't be bothered to taxi round me and has decided to fire at me to get my attention. The right aileron is shredded and I'm leaking fuel.

Needless to say, I jump into the rear seat and kill the pilot; I was more angry than words can say...

Wasn't a new pilot though... just an the sort of arse you tend to come across once in a blue moon.

I've run into so many so called "online aces"
who use that tactic.

They'll say, "I'm gonna go have a smoke."

And leave their damaged, smoking, shot up wreck sitting their until I refly.

They aren't having a smoke, they are watch me through externals waiting for me to land and refly so they can deny me my kill.

Damage that would result in points should still be applied even after you refly. That would stop these tards that resort to low life tactics.

One man's kill stealing is another man's idea of teamwork. It's a matter of perception. Look at it this way...what if you were actually in combat and your life was on the line? I would be greatfull.

I was on a server with AI planes and the admin was in a Pe8. He took off and kept his landing flaps on to gain altitude. Halfway across the Map from his base I shoot him down and because of his flaps being down, the message pops up "361st_Steaks, winners dont play vulchers" and the host gets mad at me. I make my case by saying he was halfway between the two bases before i killed him, and he said that "The game never lies" and kicked me.....lol.

Also I was on a server where the admin had told me to back off the enemy base after I dove on a P51 but didnt get a shot off. So I fly back to our base and fly around in circles in my P47 at 3000m. Meanwhile, this P51 pilot climbs up and trys shooting at me, we do a few maneuvers and I finally flame him on a headon. He gets mad and complains to the admin that I am basehugging again. I tell my side of it to the admin, but he just calls me an Asshat and kicked me off the server....


I agree with tttiger though....These things are just jerk tactics, not n00bish

Flying online with people on my own side (not nec teamates just same colour) who are selfish. For instance saw a couple of 109's being beaten up once (I flying G2 on same side) So I winged over, did the business for them. On the climb out got a couple of baddies on my six and got smoked. My point is these people who I had just helped were in a perfect position to help me. When I typed in afterwards "where was the help then" someone replied "In the manual" I **** you not if that person had said that to my face at that moment he would have needed some new front teeth. Yes I did see the funny side as well!

3) People who whine about AAA being too deadly because they got shot while stairing down the barrel of a flak cannon while flying 300km/h in a straight line.

4) People who whine about AI gunners being snipers when they are 20m behind my stuka flying level and I pop them in the head with the tail gun.

5) Servers that allow vulching but have only 1 base per team and no AAA.

6) Servers with all planes on both sides but no icons.

7) Servers with icons.

8) 1vs1 DF servers that the host kicks you from because you killed him 4 times in a row while he was flying his "unbeatable" P-51 and you were flying a POS Fw-190D9. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

- In a free for all, when another player jumps in on your target and scores a kill. If you are winging for or with someone and they take shots when you are out of position, thats fair.

- When aircraft spawn in front of me and I'm taxiing at 30km/h

- People who whine at me about disconnects, when they don't realize my computer is A)overheating and resetting itself, even though I told the BIOS not to, B)Chock full of bad RAM or C)wrestling with a Ti4600 that has gone suicidal. I've reset the heatsink with new goo, so I don't think its that. I'm going to buy new RAM and a 9800pro soon to try and take care of the rest of the problem. It happens most often when lots of graphical goodies are going on. Like tracers and hitstrikes on my wings

- 190 pilots who whine about people flying La-7, Yak-3, and Ki-84. Don't they realize that the La-7 is to the Fw-190 what the Fw-190 is to the Jug. And I rarely see Jug Pilots whining. The Jug was not the fastest, most maneuverable, best climber, or anything. It was a good solid aircraft that, when flown well, means death for everything else. The Ki-84 is basically a Fw-190 anton that turns well. I mean, the Frank has the climb advantage, but not a ridiculous one. Anton-9 wins the armament argument. And durability, And roll. The Frank isn't really that uber, it is just the most accesable energy fighter.

When I get tired of spending the time to get altitude in my Jug, I fly the A-9, because of its great climb and remarkable ability to kill just about anything in one microsecond. The Ki-84 (i haven't flown frankie online since before AEP) is another good choice. Great climb, but not sustainable. Good roll, but not anton-roll. Good turn, but not yak-turn. I don't see the problem.

Back to the topic

- icon-off servers. In real life, pilots had more than 1024x768 colored dots to work with.

no map path servers in planes with compass behind the gunsight, and speed bar turned off. I've had to use the sun before, and it wasn't fun at all looking down at rivers trying to guess which was which.

- people who, when you cripple them near their base, attempt a landing and whine when you finish them off.

- people who whine when you kill them on the ground on a vulching-allowed server. I'm sorry, I didn't carry these bombs all the way over here to give them to granny.

- the way bombers attract every enemy fighter like flies. Its no fun in a B-17 trying to return from the a run, only to be shot down BY A GUY YOU ALREADY KILLED TWICE! and all of his friends, who you also killed twice!

It can sometimes be fun. Before the ai gunners were toned down, a flew a Pe-8 and killed the entire enemy roster three times in one flight. I got about 5 kills with the bomb alone. I love 20mm sniper canons, when they are pointed at the bad guys.

- escorts that get bored, or chase some non-threat, leaving you all alone in a big bomber.

- people who get angry when you bomb them. I already said this, but as hard as it is to get a laden aircraft to the enemy base, and find a target on the ground, you should get 10x points for anything you kill with a bomb.

-servers that don't allow rockets to be used for ground attack. They sure as hell weren't used for air to air in real life, at least not most of them. And they aren't much easier to use than a bomb. But I can carry three pairs of them in my jug, and with the 1000 pounder, thats a potential four ground kills instead of one . . .

Enough ranting. I'm too tired for this.

Not a newb rant, but a "supposed veteran" rant:

After chasing down someone that is probably a little better than you, maybe a good 5+ minute chase, they laugh at you at say, "Haha, it took you over five minutes to catch up with me, *******."

Yeah, I just killed you *******.

Happened to me a few times, not quoted verbatum though.

The ones I hate the most are, like they have said above, when you have been shooting at an enemy for almost 3 minutes, get him smoking, break off, then someone pops in and kills him.

But then again like they said above, I'm not a points mongrel, and I don't care what anyone says, it's especially the idea if, when in that time of shooting the enemy, there is not a soul around, just you and the bad guy, then after you get him smoking and break off someone pops in. That's what I'm talking about.

I hate guys who seem like nice guys and fly as a wingy with you, they warn you about clearing your six when someone is attacking you etc. You think "wow that guy is a good team mate!"

The next day you meet him online you talk to him friendly and then he turns out to be a kill stealer. After being friendly to him I find it hard to yell abuse at him. I am actually surprised how many big names/good pilots actually resort to kill stealing, and noob takeoffs across the taxi ways etc.

I also hate guys who pop up with their MK 108 to take away your glory with a quick shot when you have been pumping 20mm for the last minute at your smoking target.

One man's kill stealing is another man's idea of teamwork. It's a matter of perception. Look at it this way...what if you were actually in combat and your life was on the line? I would be greatfull.

OTOH I hate it when a teamate gets trigger happy and sprays bullets into YOUR plane. Stuff happens though as even I have done this by accident. I always try to appologize though.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

LOL no, some jerk shooting at your target that is already on fire and heading for the ground how is that teamwork? Every target that I have stolen off me was not a threat to me or anyone else, if the guy was vulching or attacking someone else then fair enough the team must get him down. I'm not that bothered about not getting the points I'm bothered that the victim thinks the kill stealer was the guy who skillfully shot him up in a hardworking dogfight.

This is a good one, and I'm basically a noob! I was flying a '38 last night and (somehow) snuck up on a KI-84. Shot him up a bunch before he split-s'd and charged after me. I opened the throttle got some distance and then came back at him. While lining up for the kill he disconnected right before me! Bad form, but, hell, so what.

But them, he comes on chat and says "I could of filled you full of holes Mr. P-38!"

It's hard enough managing in the '38 against those space ships without that crap!

Well, the most noobish thing I really hate is something that I see with squaddies frequently: They fly a LA7-3B20, K4 or Z and when you get behind them, they leave the server, 50% of the time reconnecting right away. Just happened twice to me. Really annoying.... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

For me its the good old take off across the runways and taxiway without looking where the fark they are going trick. I hate it when I'm on my takeoff or landing run and some dumb ars takes off crossing right in front of me and I collide with them. It ticks me off even more when I get points taken away after a good three kill run. Next on the list are the team killers. Third are the kill stealers.

Osiris_X9<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Do you mean certain players going across the airbase, off the runway on the grass to take off? If so, I thought the landing gear would break off at high take off speeds. If this is not the case, it should be. I have had that happen to me before.

Another thing I hate is when squads dont follow the rules on their own server. For instance, I was on a server, whose name will remain anonymous. The server clearly stated that vulching both taking off and landing aircraft was not allowed. I had killed this one member of the clan flying an La7 about 3 times with my G14. Anyway, as Im landing to get ammo, the guy flys up behind me and shoots me, setting me on fire. I couldnt manuever, as I had just touched down at 200kph. Anyway, I comment on it, and the guy just tells me to STFU or leave....I left....
