I have been flying this game since it came out. Lately it seems that sometimes I will be in a game online and I won't be getting credit for the planes I shoot down. It is very strange. I will be the only person on my team in the vacinity, I shoot holes all over my opponent, he goes into the ground, but it doesn't give me any points when I land or bail out. It doesn't happen every time I fly online either. It only happens once in awhile. Does anyone have an explanation of this?

When it's happening it will be plane after plane that I am not getting credit for. It's not a single occurance.

I agree, but I want to fix it if it's something with the game. FB is the best air war sim I have ever seen, I just want to know if there's an answer to this.

Salute Will,

I know 69th_Lucky has had the same happen to him on and off. My best guess is that it is firewall or router related.

Thanks for the reply "BAT"

I think I agree with you about the router. My firewall was off when it happened. It only happens maybe once a week, but when it does it gets frustrating. Next time it happens I'll just play Solitaire LOL.

Hey Will. As Blizard said check your router it could be a potential especially if it happens an entire series and on a recurring basis. If you exit the game when notice and come back in does it continue? If so it may be Fletch keeping you guys down http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Salute Will..BLiz

I thought it happened to everyone once in awhile. Never thought about the router thing. Just right it off as a fortunes of war. With no verification there goes your future book and movie deals, hehe.

Say hello to EURO squad for me

Hey Jim.......long time.

I bypassed the router to my FB machine and have been doing much better. I enjoy the game alot more when I hit someone and pieces fall off their ride. I could look at it as the fortunes of war, but when I unload all my ammo on a plane and he goes in without it giving me any kind of score I kinda lose interest. It is starting to look like a hardware setup problem on my end and not a problem with the game.

Hunter82............Fletch? never heard of him lol.

Happens to me all the time.

If and when I do manage to get a Kill its nice to get the points. (Its how I measure my performance). Thought I`m sure I will agree with most of you that "points dont matter" if and when I get more kills per mission.
