Can we have another forum just for whining? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif Sometimes I come out of an online game and just want to b1tch real bad about it but I know if I would do it here it would just get locked, there should be a forum where you can just let out some steam http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

I mean just now I got shot down by a plane that I bounced and put a hell of a lot of 20mm into. He then followed me around the map looking none the worse and actually managed to shoot me down whilst I was busy with someone else.

I played back the track and I had definitley hit him quite a bit with the 20mm and the 7.92, all there was to show was some tiny black specks but otherwise his plane looked fine and it flew fine. I passed another of his buddies at high speed and pumped him full and saw explosions all across him, and no kill there either.

I then tussle it out with another of his buddies and meanwhile he then gets me in a very fast snap shot and puts 5 huge bowling ball size holes in my wing with his fire in a fraction of a second (I must admit it was a good shot)whereas I had pumped him for about 1 second, arggggh I want to just explode.

In real life if you were damaged you just went home, when I'm damaged online I often head home as a Bf 109 is almost useless the second it takes a tiny hit.

Nowadays you get these psychos that will follow you even when they are on fire. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif I'd understand if it was an "arcade" server, but not a "close to full switch" server.

It's really therapeutic letting this all out though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/cry.gif Crying about something always makes me feel better. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Since the patch, there is alot of BS going on. I don't think this all has to do with the lag. Everytime someone says something like this, you get "Standard Answer Number 1"; It is the lag!!!

Xnomad,

Can I whine about your sig?

The 109 was a small plane.

The P-38 was a larger plane.

At the Chino Air Museum they had both planes.

I could see into the cockpit of the 109 while standing next to it.

I could stand under the P-38.

The P-38s wingspan is 50% longer than the 109.

52 feet for the P-38 (http://home.att.net/~jbaugher1/p38_13.html)

32 feet 4.25 inches for the 109 (http://www.bf109.com/frameset.html)

Your sig just doesn't look right.

The 109 looks huge

The P-38 looks tiny.

Note: This is just a whine and should probably be moved into the whine forum.

Nicolson won a VC for chasing and shooting down a 110 that had shot him up and set him on fire. Psycho or hero? You decide http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Heinz Knoke also managed to shoot down the plane (P47?) that had set him on fire.

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif they aren't supposed to be the same scale, don't worry I know they are different sizes just pretend the 109 is closer to you. If I scaled down the 109 there would be a lot of empty space and it would be very small. Nevertheless if you make a point maybe it bothers the others too so I might change it about a bit.

Knoke's shoot down was a bit easier I suppose because it was an overshoot and he just needed to pull the trigger (I can't remember him burning up though), Nicolson however was burning when he got the Bf 110 and was blinded and bleeding, hmmmmm brave but not exactly rational, better to fight another day than end up dead or in hospital. I suppose he was really angry and just had to get one of those guys before he went down.

Well what good would a "Letting off Steam Forum" do? People whine or go OT in any forum they choose. People ask for help in the General Discussion forum when they should go to the Community Help forum (after first searching for their answer, of course). I am sure most of the whine posters don't use the bug reporting email before they go into the ORR and whine. So what makes you think things would be different in your suggested forum?

I would just give the whiners three whines then ban them from the site. That would put an end to the whining.

Xnomad,

That looks much better. Thanks http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Scale modeling is a hobby or fetish?

I'm not sure which but that does look a lot better to me.

As for the whinning penalties, a definition of whinning is in order since a broad definition would leave this board with very few posters after the third round of banishment.

Imagine all the impending banishment whinners!

Oh wait, they actually publish rules regarding content already.

What a relief...whew.

And they wind up swinging in the breeze. You want to let off steam? Go here (http://acompletewasteofspace.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=4). This forum is a direct decendent of the old Pilots Lounge.. it isnt officially sponsered by UBI.. strictly user run.. but if you want to vent go here. Be warned..... it is a place full of unsavory characters and every kind of malcontent imaginable..
