Team Work!

Is there anything more satisfying than some honest to goodness team work? I love it when I drag an enemy up and they are totally oblivious to my teammate on their six and then BOOM spare aircraft parts! I wish their was a way to get points for such and action.


Enjoy the EXPERIENCE, ignore the POINTS.

Game will improve 100x if more players took that stance.


… than seeing so called teammates trying to steal you kills either pancaking or getting killed by return fire form a burning plane without wings?

Most of players outside squads see teammates just as enemies in blue as they are competing with them for score/points/ SL & RP rewards… that’s why hardcore guys either steal kills or kill friendlies if they might be a threat for own success…

We had a proximity score years ago, rewarding you with mission score if you stayed near enemy aircraft, cancelled…

But from a holistic pov:

  • Gaijin itself does neither reward protecting friendlies (they have to get critical damaged to get a “rescuer” reward) nor they reward manoeuvre kills.

  • Baiting for and switching targets with a random stranger is fun, but usually rather rare and more a random event…


Imagine Gaijin would change the reward system on actual map designs to

  1. Battle win
  2. Player kills and assists
  3. Ticket bleed
  4. Life time

I love baiting an enemy for a so called team mate to third party kill while i do all the hard work of depleting his energy

“Third party kills” are the bread and butter of teamwork and air combat; they’re the ideal, really. Air RB is a numbers game.

Just goes to show not all enemys are red

Are you hard core?


Extremely rare these days.

Also enjoyable being alone against a swarm of red and picking them apart or going full maniac dogfight fight mode to kill as many before you go down.

Majority simply cant comprehend teamwork unfortunately.

ksing isnt really a thing, at all in this game.

Sure it happens more in plane battles… but even then… Unless you are on voice comms with them (which you arent) you dont KNOW for 100% certainty you are stealing the kill, because the planes/tanks/vehicles, could still be operational (able to move, shoot, etc)

Yea, but it hurts so much when you get into a really good dogfight with someone and someone third-parties it. Very effective tactic though.
