noob's first kill
« on: August 27, 2017, 05:53:31 PM »
Asked for this before and it happened to me once again...

Dropped in on some low B-17s over our base.  Got one and then he lost a drone turning too hard.  He did get a ping on me but no damage.  I let him go with his last bomber, figuring he was a new guy (he had an unfamiliar name).  A few minutes later, an La swooped in to vulch and I chased him, only to lose my elevators.  End result: crash and first kill ever for the new guy in the B-17s.

There should be an achievement for this, even if it's under the "hidden" category.  The "Noobs first kill" achievement.  :D

Good idea, it could also announce the feat it to the team so players can offer help.

I thought there were some first-kill categories already. They're not tied to your account creation date but rather the type of plane.

Is that not already implemented, sort of?

Add - 1rst kill in plane x would be nice.
My ammo last for 6 Lancasters, or one Yak3.
"And the Yak 3 ,aka the "flying Yamato"..."

Seems to me... u could give a noob an easy kill and not don't squeak about it...

I mean with the numbers so low...
