Not having experianced multiplayer online combat play for myself here is my first evil online combat question. What happens if I get in an especially evil mood and after I take out any enemy aircraft and the pilot manages to jump free and parachute out of his ship I decide he really pissed me off so much I do "the Saint Valentine's massacure" on his sorry behind? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif Do I lose points? No one wants to play with me then. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/halo.gif

Servers will usually have an explination of their rules on the map brief and an interwebathingy adress for the complete rules.

Back to your question, chute shoot on our servers (UK dedicated 1,2&3) and you will most likely meet the big shiney boot of kick.

No loss of points but its generally considered a "bad thing" (tm). Some servers will kick players that do it and other times its just bad as the other players will generally be displeased with you. You're asking so I assume you probably think of these things but some folks have no problem with just blaring away and many people do not like to see that. I've seen kicks and bans for it.

The virtual air combat is a bit of a jousting match and its still generally acceptable to do everything it takes to blast the enemy while they have a chance to fight. But not in their parachute. If they bail...its a salute for a good battle and you head onto the next target.

Unless you're the AI manning the AAA guns, in which case you happily blast away at 'chuting enemies and sleep well at night.

I would think you have angre management issues http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif seriously though, I cant imagine what would "piss you off" so much that you would feel the need to do that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif For me if someone gives me an exceptionally good fight, if anything i'd be more likely to let them go when thier damaged and the fight is over then shoot thier chute...

I think you'll find chute shooters are generally pilots of lesser skill, and since they dont get to shoot at much, do thier damage in other ways(the only way they can).

Here is evil question #2.

"When some bastard who is supposedly on your side flies between your guns and the target plane ... is it ok too ..... (now let your imagination run wild!)"

One of the dumbest things I ever had happen was I had to bail, and one of my "teammates" who was in a pack chasing the enemy about 10 seconds behind nosed down to blast me in my chute. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif What a dumb*ss.

no.

If you arent in the process of shooting, then you dont actually have "the shot" anyway.. and if he can get between you and the enemy, then its his shot to take..
Now if you are shooting at the plane and he gets between you, hes a flaming idiot http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif and though he should get hit for being an idiot, you shouldnt do it intentionally!

Shooting a team mate intentionally is no less ******ed(and immature) then cutting infront of a team mates kill.

Historically, on the East Front it was 'Total War'. Anything that moved, and it wasn't yours, you shot at.
