1. You enjoy taking off and landing more than shooting

2. You were just killed the 5th time in a row without even scoring a hit on an enemy plane, but you are respawning anyway.

3. Noone even bothers to engage you anymore, because you are simply not a challenge.

4. Everyone engages you because they know that you are an easy kill.

5. You spend more time on a full real server just flying around looking for everyone than fighting. (getting your 6 shot off is how you usually find them)

6. The only messages to you in your console are ~S~, or S!, or ~S, or Salute.

7. You love watching people that are engaged by looking out of the cockpit, just waiting for the chance to engage without being accused of TRYING to steal a kill.

8. Collisions

9. Your monitor screen is black.

10. Your favorite ace is RBJ.

You're constantly getting shot down by head on attacks or flying into hills, becasue you fly in F2 mode with the camera looking back at your 6 so no one can bounce you... (you gave up on F6 cos your plane hides the ace manoeuvering to kill you - again...)

The only way you can get a kill is to taxi into the plane in front of you while everyone waits to take off. A friendly kill is better than no kill at all !

LOL, my favorite response so far.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

How about if the LA7 pilot, after taking you down all day in the LA7, jumps in YOUR favorite plane and keeps doing it?http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Actually, the only people who will never become aces are those who will not be honest with themselves and rely on a warp crutch or similar cowardly tactic.

You spot bandit below. Zoom in on his 6. Hands sweaty. Trigger ready. Easy does it now. Just
simply lower combat flaps to slow down. SNAP!
There goes the landing gear ripped right off
'cause you hit V instead of G, so you flight right by him and get bounced!

Some really good posts, people. Really funny, yet true stuff. I made this post at the last minute this morning before leaving for work, and so I couldn't check it till just now. I saw SlickStick's post and figured that there were enough of us that felt the opposite way that we should also have our say. I love this game more than any other hobby that I have, and belive me, I have a few. It doesn't matter to me that I get shot down alot. I make friends by laughing it off, and making fun of myself. Its aways been a dream of mine to fly one of the old warbirds, and FB makes that dream a sort of a reality, so the one kill that I get in a blue moon is just a bonus. I do believe that I have improved, but me an ace? No way. And to tell the truth, I'm having a blast anyway.

Thanks for the responses.

My favorite MO back in the early days used to be exactly what you posted, except instead of hitting the gear or something, I would always fly up the guy's tail or T-bone him because I was trying to get a good, close shot and got going too fast.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Then, I realized longer shots can be as effective and now I don't have to get so close anymore, lol.

The bottom line is that you have fun Tsisqua, in the air and on the forums. For me, that is the only requirement for this game.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Problem with this game is, it's tough to share a laugh like this with your wife or other "outsiders".

The only way you use any of the bombers (AI or flyable) is as a dive bomber, because all that bombsight stuff in the instructions looked waaay to complicated (as an aside, has anyone here ever even tried that???)

You love the PE8 (even though you spend most of your time in it ground looping as you try to take off) because it's got uber cannon for defence that always smoke at least one of those swine who can fly the little planes (and hit things with them, the bastards!), and because it offers the surest way of you getting any kills - the 5000Kg bomb.

Your most kills are achieved by sitting in the PE8 on the runway with the aforementioned bomb, waiting for someone to strafe you - at which point you drop the bomb and kill both of you... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

"The only way you use any of the bombers (AI or flyable) is as a dive bomber, because all that bombsight stuff in the instructions looked waaay to complicated (as an aside, has anyone here ever even tried that???)"

I mapped my 1-9 keys to the bomb sight controls. The He-111 sight is very easy to manage, once you get used to it. Also, map a key or stick button to "Level Stabilizer" in Controls.

Then, set up a Quick Mission with some ground units to attack. Get some altitude, say 2500m and line up the target from a few km or more away. Then, hit "Level Stabilizer", switch to bombadier's position (nose gunner using C key) with pit-on and use CTRL F1 to lean into bomb sight.

You'll see the sight. Raise it to scan the horizon and then you adjust the sight for your altitude and speed. Keep an eye on your altitude and speed to make fine adjustments to sight.

Also, toggling level stabilizer off and on to make slight rudder corrections at no more than 5 degrees or the sight becomes unstable and goes off for about 10 seconds or so. When the target is in the crosshairs, Toggle Sight Mode to Auto and the bombs will drop automatically.

It takes some practice, but you'll master it quickly with patience.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
