OK, so BnZing is fun, I get the satisfaction of destroying things without too much danger of being destroyed myself (if I fly the plane (usually stang) intellugently). For weeks now, I have been BnZing exclusively. But then...

I rediscovered why I fell in love with IL-2 in the first place way back on the Russian front in 1941. This is why:

Banking and rolling like a madman engine overheated fighting to keep afloat at 150 kph 20m above the hard cold ground with holes in my wings 70m behind mr. evil enemy bandit guy taking snapshots with my few remaining 7.7mm rounds then finally after minutes that seem like hours of this with a triumphant cry I watch him lose control of his tattered bleeding hulk and plummet to his death. THAT is true air combat.

which is why my favourite ride online used to be the p11c ... split S from about 100m AGL and turn within the wingspan of a pe8 .. slow but it improved if you dived and made the wheels snap off

most annoying plane on an online server ever !!!

I LOVE TnB. I can't wait till whatever server I'm on rotates to a map where I can use I-16s, -153s, and the like. Sure, they're slow, can't nose down in them, and all that, but its just so much fun trying to outwit the other guy.

Hey, nothing personal, but if you're down there furball'n on the server I'm on, I might just be the guy who drops down and takes you out right after you flame that guy.

And if it's not me or one of my BnZ brethren, it'll be one of the others from the ever present TnB horde. Turn'n and burn'n is not conducive to landing kills.

I.D. math
B + Z = Adversary
T + B = Victim

Don't think I don't know that or well...
Have it happen to me every night...

BUT SO WHAT? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

TnB is so FUN http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

But in seriousness:
This is a game, it's about the fun, and TnB is as fun as it gets. For me anyway.

If I was unfortunate enough to be in WW2 IRL, I'd probably do the same thing, because it's a war there's a good chance I'll die anyway (I'm talking about Russian front) so why not have fun in that plane?

Always a pleasure talking to you idonno. http://media.ubi.com/us/forum_images/gf-glomp.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif
I'm expressing my love for people who kill me even when it's not personal... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Simple, but usually one can determine whether to BnZ or TnB.

Usually if you have:
- 2+ adversaries on your tail it's BnZ.
- 2 or less you can do both finishing up with TnB.

As always it's situation dependent.

As luck would have it, death in IL-2 doesn't hurt that much http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
