More kill stealing after skill bouns and suggestion

In Air RB, now more players try to steal the kill to get the bouns. This is unfair for those players who spend great effort to crit damage an enemy.
So, why not adding a new mechanism:
within 30 seconds after dealing crit damage or igniting, regardless of who ultimately shoots down the enemy, the kill is still credited to the player who initially caused damage.

That would be functionally useless and would only impact a couple vehicles with a 30 second plus reload. It should be that an assist (not scouting assists) count as half a kill.

Yea waiting for this… should have been in the game since 10 years at the least


This suggestion is for Air RB

My bad.

ive never understood this argument… there is basically NO kill stealing in the game… in Any mode. Especially for tanks… There is NO way of knowing how bad an enemy is damaged, or Where they are damaged (a little wiggle room for if their barrel is out or what not… but still… how do i/anyone know if they arent 2 seconds away from being done with a repair and can then shoot)

So again… Kill stealing in this game is more or less NON existent… unless you are on voice comms with someone, and even then it is dicey.

So, complaining about it… is… extremely dumb and usually ungrateful (they could have just as likely, or even more than likely Saved your life, by “kill stealing” which again… isnt really a thing, in this game)


Finish them off or don’t and “risk” someone else getting the kill


There is kill stealing in the air modes, but I think, the new reward system should offer a good solution.

May just be that more planes go after planes now in general. If you haven’t noticed, map resources got reduced at the same time, so people feed on other stuff. May have nothing to do with the bonus but the bases.

They implemented new mechanics to make kill stealing harder. They added a new definition to damage that effectively guarantees the kill to the person who did it. Anything after won’t steal the kill. Don’t remember the details but there was a de. Log about it I’m pretty sure

And it is a change given to ground, which air simply got as a bonus.
So imagine you complain about getting a double bonus

There are some sad jealous people out there. Yesturday i followed the enemy down to our forward airfield. We had a guy taking off who started firing on my target. I get the kill and then get team killed for saving team members on af.

What we have at the moment is alot of idiots that not normaly play war thunder because of the sales, its not because of the bonus system

If you want to know them better, read the sales thread, where these people vent their anger that they don’t get what they want…

Should of sold him a box of crayons 😆

Smashed a B-17:

All 4 engines wrecked, 2 on fire.
Rudder gone.
Both elevators gone, plus 1 tail plane.
One wing root black.

Nosing into ground with no pitch control, so of course the Pyro top right has to come in and ‘help me’ with it.

And unbelievably I got the assist.

It’s every pilot for themselves now.

Yes, waste a ton of extra ammo which isn’t needed at all when there are 15 more enemies to shoot down. You don’t even play ARB at all but mostly tank AB
