Hi Jkerr, I believe we have flown with you before and no, we wouldn’t “lump you in”…it is our pleasure to dog-fight with you.

But next time you “belly land”, flag us down and move away from the plane…we’ll take care of it…lol

I don't think there are as many players crashing on purpose as there were when the game first came out. Most games I get seem to be with decent people, although I've had a few lately where the host quits out if he's doing badly. Can't wait for the patch though.

Hey Soulsurfer, it was great dog-fighting with you the other night; you can fly the wings off that plane! You have to teach me your trick on how you can out roll me so well…and if you want your bullets back I have them stored safe in my wings…

I think the kill scoring system is fine. Probables shouldn't count - they're probable. Imagine how many kills all the WWII pilots would have if all they're probable kills were "counted." Now realize that they probably felt more frustrated when their kills weren't counted because they had to put their actual asses on the line to get them, not just a bunch of ones and zeros.

I think most people crash due to loss of control. The majority end up down in the weeds turn fighting. Sometimes one lucky (unlucky) hit is all it takes to send you rolling, then crashing.

If they do buy the farm intentionally, who cares? Shoot them down faster. It's great motivation to improve your gunnery.

If you're frustrated about losing progress toward some unlock or achievement, sorry. Maybe you should look on the bright side and enjoy the extra MP matches you're getting to play.

Always a pleasure to fly with you man and always a good game. You can keep those bullets as I have new stock I tend to dogfight with the throttle at around 85% as the slower speed results in a higher turn rate, obviously I increase the throttle as the speed drops but other than that I just get lucky sometimes

I find that strike games have far more people crashing on purpose after getting damaged than the team or dogfight modes (not counting the CTA kamikazes). A lot of the time I will shoot a bomber that is over its targets, it will get badly damaged and then nose dive into the nearest target. I think the prospect of damaging the target as much as possible before they die is too alluring for some people. Both CTA and Strike modes would be much better if crashing planes did no damage.

Well on the other hand, If I get damaged so bad that I'm losing all control of my bomber, I know I'm probably going to crash soon anyway. So if it has to happen, I might as well do some damage.

My point exactly, it is too difficult for some to resist crashing on purpose when you have the added bonus of doing target damage. It is still just as anoying for your attacker if he doesn't get the kill.
