Why is this not possible in AAPG?

It seems the game is programmed to cancel out a player's bullets once they are dead. I Have never experienced both players dying if they both pull the trigger at the same time.

This should be possible - it sure would be in real life.

oh boy, it was possible once upon a time.. so much so.. it happened all the time :lol:

there was a lot of complaints about them, especially since they were occurring so frequently.

Grubber -- how are the edge cases that previously led to double kills handled? I'm imagining a situation where both players fire a lethal shot. The low ping player's shot reaches the server first, but the high ping player's lethal shot corresponds to an earlier server tick. Who gets the kill?

To prevent double-kills, once a player dies on the server their shots are no longer processed.


double kills still happen, for example if you throw a grenade but get shot, then your grenade explodes and kills the guy who shot you.. BOOM double kill!

Oh, okay. I think that it makes more sense that you could double kill in that situation. Why would a bullet disappear because the person holding the gun died? This was too difficult of a problem (regarding ping) so the problem was sidestepped?

the reasons 'why' or 'sidestepping' exactly i have no idea.. but whatever they did, i personally think its a lot better now they dont happen anymore.

honestly they were soooo annoying it was quite horrible, it seemed like you were lucky in a firefight if both parties lived, its just one of those things that you have had to experience to understand and fully grasp, rest assured it wasnt very good :lol:

It was one of the most complained about issues until it was finally fixed. No way you're going to see it make a comeback.

I've play often (level 26) for about a year and have never seen this happen.

I still feel it should work more like reality, but I guess this won't be changed.

Realism takes yet another loss in this battle. Its been said before but it was not satisfying for the player and felt that no one had won the shoot out. Even more so when it decided a round victory.

in War Thunder, this feat is called "Eye for an Eye". you get extra points for it, but it's small.
