I dont know if the scoring online is from HL or the game itself but I think it would end alot of fighting online if say I put 10 rounds into someone and then someone else finishes him off then we both would get 50 pts or 5 depending weather or not you land, and/or all persons involved get points.
Just a though.

just to add to what I was thinking was in WWII if you the pilot saw an enemy plane smoking on the deck making for home, or saw your wingy overshoot on a gunpass would you really be expected to not harm the enemy to save someone elses score. I THINK NOT, you would be expected to eliminate not only the aircraft but more inportantly the pilot. We keep on about realisim in this game but only as long as it works for us. [for some anyway] I dont steal kills online but have been killed by smoking planes and have to listen to boys cry about stealing. It is easy to fix, just give credit to partial kill.

Frankly I don't think this will end the kill-stealing. For them it is much easier to put some rounds in a limping bird AND collect legally some credit for it without being flamed.

In RL the procedure for kill credits was a lot of work. Guncams played also a major roll. The interpreters could fairly close judge whether a target was fatally hit or not by using a fancy machine.

Im not trying to end kill stealing just thinking of re-thinking the point system so pilot A{red} and pilot B{red} both shoot at plane X{blue} and it goes down, but 3 min ago pilot C{red} made a pass and did some damage as well,,,, well all three had a part in the kill, so all 3 should get pionts,, right?

Scores? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Scores are for players that are into arcadish gaming. Nothing wrong with it but it turns a sim into a game.

Teamwork, survival, and victory are for the simmers.

Why do people who play HL complain about scoring? It's an arcade. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Hmmm, Oké, that's a different story.

To be honest, I have attacked smoking loners on their way home. Easy kills the were, but I felt not too good with it. With your system the original attacker would indeed get some points for that.

On the other hand, lots of players don't care about points at all. Like my self, when a target is limping he doesn't pose a threat anymore and I pick another one. Sometimes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Right on, I am not into points my self but think that if they were set up in a way the dogfight may be more realistic if it was not every man for himself on a team.

Agreed Muddy. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I don't know if their server is still up, but have you tried EasternHotShots?

I haven't flown there for about two years but the guys that set it up are into historical accuracy, including planesets and scenarios.

It was my favorite server.

I think the best way is , if somoene is in a good position, or has damaged an enemy, then leave him to finish it off, whilst covering him from above.

This is the best tactic, as you can almost garuntee that he will have help on the way.

Its quite funny sometimes (when its not you) to see new pilots barge in with all gunsblazing at a target that someone else has fatally killed, or is in a brilliant position to finish him, and the two chasing planes collide.

|Or another funny one is when two planes are fighting over a kill and an enemy FW190 or Tempest comes down and gets 2 easy STUPID kills with his big cannons.

All because one pilot got greedy, it could so easily have been one kill each, but it eneded with both pilots being shot down.

If hes doing well/in a good position, COVER HIM FROM ABOVE while he shoots the enemy! Make his life EASIER not HARDER, he's on YOUR TEAM.

Some servers promote this kind of flying, such as the UKded2 and 3 servers. (Probably also more but I havent flown online for a while, been playing other games)

I'm looking forward to going on line,(soon), I hope I will be recognized for my teamanship over a kill ratio! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif
