Aimbots!
« on: February 08, 2023, 08:37:22 PM »
Enough with the aimbot chatter already! Been hearing this since I started playing around 2005. Yet to have anyone prove they exist.

Is there nothing to be said for years of experience and muscle memory? I’m a 20 year drummer… feel free to try to @ me that those qualities play no factor. :rock

I say it’s all legit BS!  :bolt:

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!

Yeah, while I'm sure they exist, 99.9% of the players have no use for them, its just a justification some players use to explain why they got shot down.

Now gaming the game (hiding in buildings) that happens. Hopefully Hitech will fix that.  :cheers:

To be honest 99% of the time it's a subtle tip of the hat to the shooter.

:aok  It took me 3 bombs to kill Buffalo the other day!????  "Yeah, 1stpar, thats how I know you dont cheat!"      I'll take it! :rofl  It gets old, the accusations, it truly does. :bhead  I have been practicing/perfecting that skill for 8 years now...surely it should be a KNOWN FACT by now? ATTACK my bases, and give me access to a Spit XVI and ORD...well is what you should expect? :neener:

When you shoot them down and they say you cheated consider it a compliment

It's called the internet

Don't talk bollocks Eagler it's sour grapes and spitefulness. "Nice shot" <- that's a compliment.

To each their own..

I consider it a compliment

..or be insulted ..it's your choice

Most of what someone thinks is an odd shot is the internet and its lag effects

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

Because of the scoring, for the most part the Hit% would be an indicator of aimbot. For example a hit% of say 15% would put you in the top 5 of all players in the game for fighter mode. Even directly shooting at bombers doesn't give you above a 30%. An aimbot would have a player scoring in the 30s after multiple sorties which wouldn't be possible. It would be nice to see who scored #1 hit%, but I doubt it would be a new or suspicious player achieving it.

An aimbot will work in a ground based FPS where all it need do is recognize a target and center your view on that target. Not so simple in a flight sim.

Someone in the past was banned for using it in game.

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



The median hit% for all 492 pilots with at least 10 kills in fighter mode was 3.94% in tour 276.
