    Its all so easy when you lose and don't like it to throw this out isn't it?
    I was called it on a coop server on HL last night and banned. They host alot.

    Did he view a recording to check my flying over before the ban?.
    Did he check the Hurri IB in IL2compare (HSFX mod )I was flying to find out it is pretty much as fast as an E4 and faster over 8K where I was fighting?
    Did he recall the last coop where I fought with him in a good fight which showed him I knew what I was doing?

    Did he fek! No he calls 'Cheat!'
    So I was a hacker because I could fight two of them using energy tactics in a, I'm sure inaccurate mod plane at a height the game does not model well and win.

    Then the claims continue in HL. So I told him my squad name thinking this might help. As if!

    The part that ****ed me off most was how due to my strongly denying this, that in some peoples eyes that was even more incriminating against me!!!!!
    I'm buggered if I'm going to let a wee 'Tinpot General' throw bs accusations about willynilly. I fly in a squad and his accusations reflect on them as well as myself.

    So firstly a question- how would/did you handle being called a cheat on HL?(I guess I did it poorly!- I was a bit sauced up)

    And second a message to you hosts that ban/ignore folk because they make you look less than ordinary (a teammate has also been banned for this!) and you call them cheats.
    Please realise that there are pilots out there not just on HL, a lot actually, who can do stuff you cant.
    Why? not hacks. I've seen precious few in 6-7 years and none that made any difference to their piloting skills and understanding of dogfighting. Its the poorer pilots that try it in my experience and it shows.

    So its practice against the best, at the hardest settings in the toughest servers/wars and it is practiced alot. Thats what. A 25min coop with easy settings isn't hard to look good in then is it?
    Harder to accept than a world of cheaters I know.
    Think before you blurt out 'cheat' next time.

    And for the record host I do not cheat at IL2, never have, never will.

    Thankyou

    S!

    1): "recording this conversation, firstly how exactly did I cheat, and got a track?" If answer is yes, then 2): "watch it and come to me again", if its no, then 2): "learn to fly".

    I am called a cheater about once in a month myself as well...

    Doesn't matter who the host is...as you have two options.

    1. State no I do not, then be banned and never go back, and once in HL not go on about it past saying no being the bigger person.

    2. Start whining and griping posting in HL and various forums about it making yourself look as bad a sport as the host.

    Sour grapes is part of it.....and you have no idea of what slurs are if "cheat" is the worst of it (as you cannot even imagine the extent of the vulgarity cast at me constantly in HL, and in the sim online)........You can either buy into it dropping to there level, or let your reputation as a fair and good sport speak for you.

    Blowing off such slurrs stating a lot more about your character then arguing the point.

    I usually reply along the lines "I'm using the skill cheat. It's not for download, but I'm sure you can acquire it, too." End of discussion.

    The wings wrt guns were like a,b,c, same as the Spits.

    You only need one 's' in existed. Phonics is a reading method.

    S!

    Put IL-2 Compare to work. Based on the OP, Hurricane Mk.1b vs Bf109E-4. Both stock ones of course to get consistent results.

    Fight altitude 8000m as told in post. Bf109E-4 is faster than Hurricane. 488km/h versus 502km/h, not much and difference but boils down how Hurricane pilot has trimmed plane and how skilled the Bf109E pilot is managing his radiator etc. Rate of climb on both is 6m/s at 8km so the initial situation determines outcome.

    So being called a cheater is out of line there Gadje I have flown against FI and these guys are good sports, giving a run for the money

    I believe that the Mk I models all had 8x.303 armament, but that for purposes of clarity, the Mk Ia is used to designate the early fabric wing version with the fixed wooden prop, and MK Ib is used to designate the metal wing with the three bladed variable or constant speed prop versions.
