Online Friendly Fire ?

Post by Meaker » Sat Feb 10, 2018 7:21 pm

I love BoX and online play is great.......however,I am alarmed at the amount of friendly fire on all servers,I have been shot down three times by friendly fire over the past week,flying a Ju88,how the bloody hell can guys misinterpret the shape of a Ju88 ?.......I'm not impressed with some guys aircraft recognition at all :wank:

....And it's not just me,friendly fire is happening all the time online,it's one issue of BoX that needs to be addressed,just look at the online,onscreen messages,and you'll soon see what I'm talking about.

In short,if your not sure....DON'T FIRE !!

Unfortunately... it is all down to the caliber of the players - If our ACG BoX events are anything to go by, I don't think we had a single instance of blue on blue?

BoX servers (especially WOL) is full of "game" pilots rather than serious enthusiasts

This is public servers in every game ever. The only server I fly in BoX is TAW, where friendly fire will earn you a 3 day ban.
Not seen any incidents in the BoX missions we're running here.

There were a couple trolls lately in Wings of Liberty who were explicitly TKing as well. I haven't encountered them though.
