I've played dogfight free for all lately and I've seen several players get shot down and then hide in the hangar as a tank and shoot down 15 airplanes as they take off to win the game. This makes a joke out of the concept of a dogfight free for all and shouldn't be allowed IMO.

+1. Perhaps have an option for users to select airplane or tank when spawning (e.g., after being shot down). This would make tank wars possible too.

Something needs to be changed. I just played dogfight again, and the exact same thing happened. The person got shot down (I'm guessing pretty close to the airport), went inside the hanger and shot airplane after airplane as soon as they spawned.They had 15 kills in 4 or 5 minutes and the game was done. Those of us flying around actually trying to dogfight were just wasting our time.

I have seen that too. It does seem to defeat the intent of the dogfight. I think the problem is the immunity, no player should be able to find a perfect hidey hole from which to kill.

For the sake of realism, perhaps the answer is to allow damage to buildings from repeated strafing. I am not talking the hangers, I mean the red warehouses that the tanks get inside and become immune. It is a realistic tank tactic, but then it is also realistic that the hiding place should crumble under repeated attack. Perhaps dropping the roof on the tank, or at least exposing them to direct fire.

They aren't hiding - they park there and kill planes the minute they spawn. If you are at another airport or are dogfighting other airplanes it's very difficult to shoot a tank parked in the corner of a building. Besides why do people run around in tanks in the free for all dogfight anyway? Since there are no hangars to destroy it's completely pointless. Well it's pointless unless you're planning to do exactly what I pointed out in the first place. Thanks for getting rid of this loophole Zupe - too many players were starting to use it to the detriment of FFA.

I am glad Zuperman is nixing tanks, easy fix. Corsair, I am interested in how you dealt with it. When I saw an immune tank it was inside a building that would stop my strafing. I never got a line of sight shot, how did you make the kills? Bombs?

Why is a tank immune. I just had tank drive all the way to airport and you couldn't touch it until it started shelling my airport?

When it says that a plane or tank is immune:
Mostly because if Your using an apple device they still have that problem. Even though the plane or tank is done taking off and now in the battle field , apple devices are still having that problem but I think Z is getting to it
so it can be fix.
If you lose in the outside you win in the inside.

I think it's your own teams fault for even letting a tank get within the perimeters of your base. They move at what -- a few kilo's an hour? Plus -- there's a certain rush you get when you're in a tank and you can just TASTE the bunkers coming up in the distance while dodging bullets!

Which is also a possibility that if you're a tank and shoot a planedown to. You automatically an aircraft. And if you once a shot at the hangars have checked in and taking one or more have been destroyed in that one shot, then you are automatically a plane.

This gives you the difficulty of a tank to shoot away and then there is also some variation in the game.

Please consider this as well Zuperman acquisitions.

There are no bases in the free for all dog fight game. People take off from carriers or airports so no one is protecting any base.

Yes that freebie is nice. A tank is like a big fat marshmellow on wheels that's just begging to be roasted.
