    Maybe jump out and repair while it falls? :/

    Just get the engineer as a passenger, but not on a gun.

    Yeppers. Those passenger slots on helicopters are often underrated, engineers in particular can be lethal in them. Mid air repairs are one thing, but my favorite is mid-air anti-air: hop into the passenger seat with a Stinger/IGLA and you're suddenly sleeper AA which the enemy never expects.

    Bookmarked. See, even us ZiiPsters play normal mode once in a while. ;)

    (Not too often though. Noone likes firing from the hip :p).

    Problem is, changing them can affect is the server is ranked or not.

    I've changed them and the server is ranked still.

    I'm sure I'll pop onto the CPC server at some stage.

    We're delighted that people are enjoying the ZiiP server. We don't care if you're "noob" or "leet", frankly I despise both terms with a passion.

    Only thing is that the focus is on Teamplay and no spawn-camping/raping :)

    Just looked up my miniscule stats on that, discovered I got a headshot last night!

    Amazed, because I never really saw anyone I got, I was mostly providing support from a distance & firing through smoke....

    I'm struggling to get into this yet- I'm suffering from disappearing weapons and people so I may have to wait for that all important first patch (or the next ATI graphics driver update).

    I have discovered a wee problem with my game.
    I remapped my grenade key to 'F' but for some reason when I tap 'F' it switches from what ever weapon I am using back to main gun and fires off a round then switches back to what ever I am using.
    I have been through all my key mappings and nothing else is assign to that key. It works if I assign my grenade to something else, but years of having it as 'F' I don't really want to change it to something else.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Had one game on the CPC server earlier and got my first MVP ribbon in it, pretty proud of that :D Will have another game or two on it later hopefully :)

    Wow this thread moves fast, almost forgot to go back and check if anyone replied to my post just last night since it's now a couple pages back...

    My K/D is 1.03 and my W/L is 1.43. 11.6% accuracy, lots of heals and revives, lots of point capturing and defending. Not bad stats if I do say so myself, which is why that stat confuses me so much. What criteria are they using to get it and how does it go from -50~ to 200~ with little difference in other stats?

    I'd almost say that stat collection is broken, all sorts of oddities keep popping up the longer I look. Heals/repairs/resupply seems to be off. I know for a fact, 100% guarantee, that I have repaired vehicles (with team mates inside!) more than four times. I've gotten more than just from one tank! Resupply says 84, that seems fair enough until I look at heals: 2,134! What?! I knew it'd be more than resupply but that's just not possible, it's way too high. Another stat that's confusing me is "Damage Assist" being at 0... what does this stat even mean? I have 8 Destroy Assists, the stat for damaging a vehicle that later is destroyed, and the number seems accurate compared to my 12 Vehicles Destroyed. But what is a Damage Assist recording?

    I'd also like to see a Suppression Kill Assist counter, can't seem to find one. I'm a numbers person and enjoy watching stats and the correlations between them. Accuracy feels low and I'm willing to bet this will explain it.
