I only see a couple of those names when I play usually 8-11P est
Back in 2022 after a loooooong break from 2010. Old name Ratpack, same for the BBS.

Squad I did the most tours with were the Excaliburs then The 172nd Rabid Dogs. Still trying to talk Illigaf, Coola, Oldman22, and Joecrow into coming back instead of being boring old farts!

I'm always entertained (annoyed) by the whining when someone gets shot down - usually by buffs.  If you come in from the 6 and get killed it's because you are a dumb*ss.

I don’t get it, I fly straight and level and their bullets still hit me. MUST BE CHEATS!

Top 20 hit% (fighter mode) pilots in tours 275 and 276, and the number of kills made in that mode:

(Image removed from quote.)

The median hit% for all 492 pilots with at least 10 kills in fighter mode was 3.94% in tour 276.
you should do one on me

My numbers are low.  I just take a lot of shots in a tour and rack em up :aok

You haven't arrived in AH until you're being accused of cheating.

I've never been good enough to be accused of cheating.  :embarrassed:

I'm personally responsible for lowering the stats on at least 3 of those players   :banana:

IMHO you harm your overall gunnery focussing too much on simple statistics. We aren't efficient machines, we're animals and animals should act in accordance with their nature. I reckon my statistics are 88% hit ratio, 33%-50% of the time  :rofl Which if you think about it is fantastic because I usually get 2-3 potential guns solutions per fight.

I'm interested in Lusche's philosophy on shooting since military service notwithstanding means he likely has not been taught to shoot  :headscratch:

Don't talk bollocks Eagler it's sour grapes and spitefulness. "Nice shot" <- that's a compliment.
"Talk bollocks"?  nrshida, Brother, Eagler is 'Bad Mouthed...CHEATER' way more than even I am...and that is SPEAKING VOLUMES!  IMHO, he speaks from a Point Of Relevance. Unfortunately...these days, it IS SOMETHING akin to a Badge of "I Have Arrived"! :uhoh    I understand what you posted!  Eagler is like you and I....Not ONCE have we ever griped about "You...this...you are a THAT".  Due was acknowledged, "Awesome shot,Sir.......<S>"....ect ect.  This IS NOT the NORM these days :uhoh  Its gotten way worse since I last saw you ingame, just a few months ago. :bhead

Look for the biggest target available and get as close as possible, like this one yesterday:

Foodstap is the only one I'd check out on that list. However it appears most of his kills were on one player named Mattking in the lancaster (86) with a P39 and 110. Still interesting he kept it that high with A6m and Brewster among a bunch of other planes. He must have had a really high hit% not counting the other planes. Blkjak with a 60% even on one kill is pretty crazy. I recon 2 bullets were shot from the 262 and one hit where he ended up getting the kill?

In any case, this list and average hit% show that no one is using an aimbot.

This another one of those silly excuses folks use when they make a mistake. Own your mistakes, make corrections, and then you will get better. If not, then your suckage will continue. :aok

For every 20 sucky aiming misses, I get one really nice, "wow, I even impressed myself with that shot" moment.  But in general, the way I engage - outflying, (and missing my shots until I get it) as opposed to a quick kill (which might've been a wtf kind of shot) is why I've never dealt with any accusations of cheating over my career.

In general, for air combat, it is latency, often combined with misreading perspectives, that create cries of aimbots.   

For GVers it's generally been an issue of not grasping the low fidelity tree/ground modeling works (perspectives.)
Surrounded by suck and underwhelmed with mediocrity.
I'm always right, it just takes some poepl longer to come to that realization than others.
I'm not perfect, but I am closer to it than you are.

High altitude bomber hunting makes for a high hit percentage.

Chasing stick-stirring Yaks and Doras around their ack makes for the opposite.  :uhoh
