I’ve just came from a game on j5n1 where I killed 6 people and then i was searching for two players: a clipped israeli spitfire and an attacker fw190. Thing is, I’ve popped an avenger order when I went back to the map and saw them two taking off from the small airfield and climbing up to 3k circling around the small and the larger airfield and diving back whenever I got close. I had to drag them away to be able to kill them, in the span of around 5-7 minutes. I eventually managed to crit the clipped spitfire (which for some reason these are some of the most plot armor based props in the entire game) but that spitfire still managed to absolutely cripple my aircraft. The fw190 was following it very closely as if they were tag teamming me.
This is not a good way to reward The Unskilled® by doing the least effort possible to win the game by just letting it play itself and make the players that make an effort on learning and carrying just become completely useless.
Because this is a common issue that affects everyone with more than three neurons working together i suggest in the name of everyone that there should be a punishment for passive behavior after 5 reviewed complaints of verified rat behavior. For example loss of silver lions, research penalty, or even getting kicked off battleground if they don’t do any activity.
