Manned Guns
« on: June 25, 2020, 01:15:45 PM »
So many hiding in manned guns who can't "die"

How about awarding a "kill" if you destroy a occupied manned gun? After all they get "kills" in them why can't they die as well, instead of automatically "landing" their kills when the gun is destroyed.

I do not believe their kills count as anything either.

It counts as kill counts, but they are not applied to score, they are "Total Kills not counted towards Rank"

Will maybe the manned guns should be another category and count toward overall score then. And if you take out one in a plane it goes toward your air to ground kills, If you kill one in a gv, toward your gv score then.

This is 100% spot on.  Its got to be hands down the dumbest thing in this game next to unlimited resupply of towns.  Its like the game mechanics are trying to reduce action in here.  I can see resupply after a base capture for 10-20 minutes, but man... nobody has a reason to fight for anything, unless you enjoy it.. lol

But i hear another attempt at using the same game engine, just a different scenario is in the works... maybe the lameness will be eliminated in that game? After making this glaring argument for years, i wouldnt count on it changing in Aces High though.

Seems reasonable, as long as the gun is actually manned at the time you kill it.  Otherwise, might as well give points for shooting bushes.   :D
