Just had the most absurd game in my T49 where I survived two falls that would ordinarily have ended my game.

One, I went proper Deacon Airborne Division off the bridge on Mountain Pass, went end over end, landed on my roof & survived!

Never witnessed such madness.

I get the feeling that something has changed.

Am I right?

Well, it was apparently a bug which they knew about. Now that it hasn't been fixed in about 2 months I'm starting to think its actually another dumbing down feature where launching yourself off a cliff doesn't kill you anymore, because, you know, that might spoil someone's fun...

Something tells me that won't be fixed before the next big patch.

Well, as we have seen from a certain poster who seems to infest the forums these days with "ideas" which make the game easier for imbeciles.

 

A change to fall damage would not surprise me. It's part of the #metoo movement this generation is so fond of. They need to feel included, so everything has to be made stupid proof for them.

 

They need to feel like everyone is equal. Skill doesn't matter, someone who has never tried to do anything NEEDS to be as good as those who have worked hard and developed skills.

It seems random but I also read somewhere you won't damage yourself as long as you don't press anything.

If you press different directions as you fall apparently the fall will hurt :playing:

My IS-3 auditioned for the Air Force in Frontlines yesterday, and failed the flying exam. Landed on roof. Zero damage but got the countdown of death and passed away unseen and unmourned. Not even a "IS-3 NOOOOOOB" comment.

That is the bug or feature.

Yep, things are definitely afoot.

Just hurled my Type 64 off the cliff on Province - landed nose first with ZERO damage!

I'm not sure if this is funny or stupid?

I think I read it's fixed on the test server.  If so then expect a fix with 1.7.
