  1. G'day My second post in this forum is concerning my ping rate in Australia on the WOL server. I have started to get into this server and have been doing my best to keep out of trouble with friendly fire etc. and help my team as much as possible. I am still not the best at dogfighting as I still keep getting people on my 6 because of my bad situational awareness. But I am not too bad in a bomber. Anyway since the last update I keep getting disconnects. Strangely usually in a bomber and usually just after I drop some bombs or just before touching down. Nothing worse than getting a HE111 up to altitude and then "BAM" gone. Or getting some good kills and dropping out just before landing. Before the update I never really had a problem, only on the very odd occasion. Is there any way the Devs would know why this is happening? I love the teamwork and feel I am a positive to the side I am plying with but sadly I have been just opting out lately. My ping when joining is usually around the 400 in a red block. I know this isn't good but like I said it never troubled me before the update. Any suggestions as to what I could do or is it just a matter of being stuck in the land down under "far far away" from the rest of the world.
  2. I have only been flying on 2 servers. WOL and EUded. WOL has been impossible since the last update though, keeps dropping out so I have been suspended so to speak. The EU is good for a dogfighting session but in Australia it is usually early hours of the morning to find some decent numbers in the server. Usually about 20 or so.
  3. I've never had a ping overlimit until the last few updates. WOL is now becoming a very frustrating server to play on for me. Nothing worse than going out on a bomb run and get disconnected just before landing. Very annoying to say the least.
  4. Definitely JtD, I will get around to it soon as it will be good to analyze how bad my flying is...lol Great info and thanks for the reply...Cheers
  5. Yes I do Bullets, it was Paul, might be Paul 310?. Very good pilot. I've been shot down by him more times than I can remember but this is also teaching me to become a better pilot as well. He pulls off some really insane maneuvers..I didn't want to mention names on this forum because of privacy or whatever but I have the utmost respect for this guy.
  6. I know what your saying gimpy, I never get in a turn fight with a spit. I should have rephrased my question another way from the beginning. If 2 planes are at equal E approaching one another in a head on fashion at equal altitude, it is my understanding that when one of the planes turns to chase they will lose E and there is no possible way they can rapidly catch the other plane? I have never seen this before with anyone.
  7. Thanks for the replies. He was only very slightly gaining at about 3k behind me. I pulled a 180 and headed straight back towards him , by the time we crossed paths at level altitude I was pretty much at full speed. There is no way he could have pulled a 180 and retain enough energy to catch me (very quickly I might add). If he had pulled up before we crossed I could see that he may have an advantage but he turned after we crossed. I just found it very strange. In fact it's haunting me a bit. I will download tacview from your advise and study future scenario's. Love this game and love the tactics. Live and learn I say.
  8. G'day I was on a multiplayer server last night in a BF 109 F4. A spitfire was chasing me down a long way behind me. I pulled a low G turn and headed straight back at him at pretty much full speed and at the same altitude. After we crossed the spit did a 180 degree turn. Even though he did a complete 180 he still had allot more energy than me and caught up to me very quickly and eventually shot me down. I have played this game for some time and this is the first time I have ever had a plane pull a 180 and still have more energy than a 109 at nearly full tilt in a slight descent. It would be fair enough if he had an altitude advantage but this was not the case in this scenario. I can not for the life of me work out how he achieved this. Any thoughts?
