Default Pilot kill after pilot kill. How do they do it??

Well we had had quite a break on the ATAG server while certain pilots had an extended break but now they are back and getting something like a 95% pilot kill rate...u know, you are in a dogfight and then ur screen suddenly goes black.
These guys are all of one nationality and are all on the same TS server together and do work well together. But PK after PK after PK and often in quick succession. Is it wrong to start asking questions??
Had one of them PK me twice on the server today while I was pulling fast moves in IIa and would have been a difficult target just to hit let alone PK and I mean no bullets whizzing by or anything just a sudden black PK screen both times. I know a lot of u fly 109s and blue exclusively and just wonder if any1 can explain how even a good pilot can pull this off 95% of the time LEGITIMATELY ? Please help me out. I fly a 109 every now and then and can't for the life of me work out how u could do it routinely. I know u can get a headshot hack in 1st person shooters (seen it often enuff) but is it possible something like this is being used in CloD ? It would be good if we could have a level headed discussion about this and not turn it into a flame war and have the thread deleted. If there is something dodgy happening then it has the potential do a lot of damage to the community.

It is possible depends on the pilot/loadout/patience

I honestly dont think there is any cheating going on in CLOD. As a 109 driver alone I am amazed(coming from warclouds in il2) how easy some red flyers go down in this game. Situational awareness seems gone. Turns that give a perfect setup and perfect target. I was on for 3h yesterday and only once did i even get shot at... I did cause a few PK but it seems to be more luck than anything! Maybe something in the new patch?? I cant remembee causing so many PK before. Saying that, also the 109 seems more sensitive to PKs...

100% AP rounds and shooting at convergence (see convergence settings below the video)



It is easier to do this with E1

No, but I like his tactics and shooting skills and asked him about convergence, loadouts, etc.

He uses 50% non-linear setting in elevator BTW. Good for shooting but not good for stall-fighting. He was not very good in a 1 vs. 1 championship BTW probably because of this.

His video thread on the forum http://forum.1cpublishing.eu/showthread.php?t=29379 (good training videos but mostly in Russian)

well, there is definitely some cheating going on...
ive seen for example a spit with only one wing turning like crazy for about 10minutes, while about 10 109s were shooting at it on ATAG above Folkstone...
it just didnt go down...it turned like it didnt had no damage at all...it only went down when i managed to kill the pilot....this was approximately 3months ago...

on the same day one of our RAF pilots told us, that they have seen a 109 flying with supersonic speeds around shooting like crazy...

...but about the pilotkills...well maybe they are just good pilots, have a good loadout and are skilled in aiming...

in 1946 people would make the head of pilot a 10 meter sphere.

given how easy it is to hack Cod, i wouldnt be surprised same is happening.
