I just started playing this game yesterday and i have some questions. So how can everybody kill me instantly and it takes me 10 hits to kill them. And why is my gunner never shooting? I know i can change the view and when i do he just doesn't want to shoot. If i get lucky i get him to actually shoot but this has happened only 3 times. Is this just because i am low lvl or rank?

it depends where you hit them. If you only hit them in the wing, it won't do much, maybe give them some turning problems. Get a direct hit in the cockpit, it's effectively a 1 hit kill. Also, the gunner will only shoot targets behind you, and not every plane has one. I think almost every bomber has one, but most fighters don't. Hitting the enemy fuselage normally will start the beginnings of a eject, as they'll be set on fire, loose fuel fast, and will blow up really easily under much more stress.


Played chicken with another plane.

That's how you AA. >=) Got my last camo for the M13 MCG that match, winter pattern. 90% of that match was in the M13, then I got spawn-camped by the entire enemy team on the other two tanks.
