why use bostons as the vulchee though?

seems a plane with low eny like a n1k would make a better candidate for upping points ect.

A couple things to think about here.

Yucca and Wax only recently joined the squad.  

Morph has been beeetching to me for like 6 weeks that he doesnt like his cpid and wanted a new one.  He even posted on our squad BB asking me to come up with a new one for him.

We are not a country loyal squad.  We have been kinda bouncing around latley.  We recently decided to rotate countrys every tour.  So in the past couple weeks its entirly possible that squad members shot each other down.

The Nitro stats are the thing that bother me the most.

I dunno fellas....... looks bad I know.  Im not going to judge my fellas till I have talked to them though.  I owe them that much.

>>I've even heard of guys who have multiple accounts and go to a remote corner of the arena (eg. next to HQ on Fester's map) and up a plane using one account, and shoot that plane down using the other account. Over and over and over - just to make progress in the ranks/scores. <<

These people need to be on the Dr. Phil show :)
But its also a great demonstration of how useless raw stats are if not taken in context and used as a tool. Obviously such a stunt is distorting the stats in a big way. But there are less obvious ways to distort stats to a lesser degree. I guess the most objective stats would come from people who never look at the stats ( i.e., oblivious to the observation - theres a name for the distortion the knowledge of being observed causes in psychological studies).

If somebody wants to pay $15 (or likely $30) a month to shoot his own planes in the hopes to impress someone, well what could you tell him that would make a difference? I think its a little sad, really. It would be a pretty meager existence I think.

Kronik has 25 kills in just over one hour of fighter time.  19 of these were against his little brother Nitro. 16 of those kills were bombers.  How long has Kronik had his new name?  Yesterday?  today? Kronik landed  a  F4U-1C mission for 9 kills today.  Kronik has a total of 9 kills in an F4U-1C. Kronik has killed Nitro 9 times in a F4U-1C. That can only mean that Kronik killed Nitro the 9 times(at least) today. Did you guys rotate countries yesterday?  today?

Wax was vulching Yucca....today.

When did you guys rotate?

Nomak, it is admirable that you would want to give your squadies the benefit of the doubt until the matter is resolved.  Unfortunately, there is no doubt at to what was happening.

It's their money.. but as far as the game goes, it's their credibility, or more correctly, lack thereof, as well.

Well.. we were playin as knights last night.. early this morning i logged on to hear wax had a field covered and i noticed he was a rook.  So i upped an la7 to shoot him down and he got me right after i lifted up.  Theeeeen i told him i'd get him yet, and i upped some bostons.  He was workin really hard for the vultches so i was tryin to see how long till he augered his 190.  After li lost like 3 flocks of bostons i gave up.
     As for the Nitro thing, i dont know anything about him, although if you notice i haven't got a single kill on a squaddy, if you have any doubts check my stats ( they sure aren't good enough to have multiple accounts.)
