During online play you will often get the message in the chatbox area that you have shot down 'xxxx' pilot, but you will not get the message appear bottom right of the screen that says 'Enemy Aircraft Destroyed'.
When this happens you are not credited with any points.
This also affects the way stats are collected in the excellent FBD program I believe.

I know that for a lot of online pilots points are not important. I like points and I don't like it when I have downed maybe 2 or 3 on a sortie (if I'm lucky!) and do not get credit for all of them.

Please can this bug be addressed Oleg and crew?

My thanks

Especially if it's a bomber which is risky to attack and you don't get points that really gets my goat http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

As well as when a team mate rams you (his fault not yours) and you get negative points for it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

It's not easy being a points ***** http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I dont know for sure, but I think this has to do with your proximity to your base.

You will probably notice that if you attack a guy vulching your base, and shoot him down, you usually get no points "Enemy Aircraft Destroyed" message, but you see it in the text at the top of the screen.

I suspect the reason for this is to do away with the negative points you are assessed when running into friendly aircraft on the ground, but I may be wrong.

when you setup a home base in the fmb it creates a perimeter around the base.You can adjust the radius of this circle with a slider in the properties tab.I beleive that an enemy aircraft destroy within this circle does not register as a kill.Many a time I have shot down a vulcher over the runway and not gotten credit for it.It is strange that you get no credit for saving your base from attack but those vulching get kills.
