JaSmAn Posted March 1, 2017 Share Posted March 1, 2017 (edited) So I have been spending quite a bit of time on EU1 over the last weeks and I quickly got bored of the run for 10 minutes and then get team killed by the guy who drives over you in his Hunter, so I whipped out the old joystick, learned to fly in advanced and became a pilot. Yeah, I don't mind getting shouted at occasionally. I have noticed, however, that a lot of pilots out there are very inconsiderate to others. So, I thought I'd make a short list of beefs and some things that I do that I think make the world a better place, for pilots and passengers alike. 1) Pilots, lock your guns before you take off. Clearly the temptation to fire miniguns at base is too much for some people. So, as a matter of course, and as the choppers spools up, get in the habit of locking the guns. 2) Look 360 degrees before taking off from anywhere. Too many times I've been coming in to land at base and the guy in the other pad takes off and flies right into my flight path (or into me). It's just a matter of having a look, really. 3) If you see a pilot waiting for a chopper to spawn, don't just run and take his chopper when it does. It doesn't hurt to ask. In other words, don't be a jerk. 4) This one really gets me - if you crash a chopper but you live, DON'T just leave it in the middle of nowhere! [Edit:see replies below for best repair option]. Only if you can't do that, then make sure you take some explosives with you at all times and blow the chopper. If you don't have explosives, get another pilot to bring you some. Finally, if you can't do any of that, send a message to the admin. But that should be a last resort. 5) If you crash the chopper at base, don't just leave it there and take another chopper. Most of the time you can walk to the repair truck, drive it to the chopper, get in the chopper and it will be fixed. Alternative, ask a repair guy to fix it. Seriously, it's not that hard. 6) Mark sensible LZs - too many times I have seen people mark LZs that are useless, only to then leave that one on the map and mark another. Other pilots will likely use the bad LZ. If you got shot down, don't just leave it there for others to get shot down. 7) Ask your passengers where they are going. If you don't get an answer, than take them wherever you feel like, but definitely ask. I'm sure I'll got some AA for this post, but hey, what pilot doesn't?
