    Has this happened to you? (remote pancaking)

    Last night while playing ONS-Crossfire online, I leaped out of my heavily-damaged manta while flying at full speed near the center node. The manta soon disappeared from view off the edge of the hill as it continued to fly on its own for a bit.

    I started doing my thing (recharging node, etc.) then a few seconds later I saw "PANCAKE!" along with "You killed (so-and-so)" on the screen.

    That was the first time I "pancaked" someone when I wasn't even in the manta anymore. :haha: I didn't even know this was possible.

    Has this ever happened to you? If so, feel free to reply.

    I have had that happen a few times. On ONS Torlan I ejected out of the Hellbender after a big jump. A few seconds later it says ROADKILL and you killed so and so. It was funny as hell. When I try out new maps I try and do that. Try Dropping the Raptor on someone!!

        this has happended to me before but usually i kinda "plan" it. just head for an enemy node and right as your getting close jump out. Its a good way to kill off the enemies recharging the node and even if it doesn't kill it serves as a great distraction so you can take em out w/ you flak or whatever.

          Once, the same sort of thing. It was in the demo, charging towards the key node in a Manta. Enemy infantry around the node killed me and my Manta as I got close, and I respawned at that node (they had not yet damaged it) in time to hear "Multi-Kill!!" and watch the wreck of my own dead Manta (presumably still carrying my corpse) cartwheel over 3 of them, killing them outright...
          My all time favourite UT2004 story.. LOL.

            LOL, that is funny.

            Another amusing manta thing last night...

            While playing Red Planet, we had all the nodes except the last one we needed so we could attack the enemy's power core. So rather than put up a fight at that last node, I flew my manta over to the enemy base and kept pancaking the enemy team members as they spawned, thereby preventing them from getting into any vehicles and getting over to the last node.

            It was hilarious. I had several multi-kills and pancakes within seconds. I must have taken out 20-30 people (mostly the same 2-3 people repeatedly). I bet they were ******! :haha:

            The rest of my team was able to take out that final node with little resistance since I was keeping the rest of the team "occupied". So feel free to give that try that sometime, if you haven't already.

                It happened to me once. My manta was on fire, so I jumped out and ran away. All I heard was VEHICLULAR MANSLAUGHTER! Then my own manta ran me over as well.

                  ...That's really damned lame. If you have to squish players who can't defend themselves *just* as they spawn at their last spawn point, you must really be one lame tard.

                  Why wouldn't they be ******? That's as damned close to spawn camping as you can get.

                  Now if you managed to pick them all off as they spawned with a sniper weapon, I'd give you some credit... but a manta? Get a life.

                    Ohhhhh, I must have not seen that written rule where it says I am not allowed to do that. OK, I see now, I should be courteous and give them a chance to fight you say? Hmmm, yeah. I guess that's how wars throughout history have been one. By giving the enemy have a chance to fight.

                    Apparently you missed the "Tactics 101" course. So allow me to summarize...

                    If you want to win the battle, show no mercy.

                    And yes, they can defend themselves. Simply dodge, hit the weapons locker right next to the spawn point, whip out the Avril, and fire. Furthermore, they spawn at more than one point at the base. I had to keep going back and forth. It's not like I was hovering over the spot. Doh!

                    I thought the main objective of Onslaught was to, oh I don't know, WIN AT ANY COST? Am I wrong here?

                    And did it ever cross your mind that perhaps I was defending MYSELF while waiting for the power node to become vulnerable so I could attack it?

                      Hmmmmm, so UT2K4 has an honor code, does it also include not killing chatting players? It's probaly very similar to the good ole JKA honor code. Hmmmm, an honor code to abide by..... hmmm this'll be interesting. Honor codes are provided to promote fair fun play in games rahter than having people insanely spawn kill enemy players, anyways, I've never had this ocurr before, interesting, LOL Swiper_the_fox thats gotta be one of the funniest stories I ever heard, beholding ur enemies being crushed by ur own corpse, thats happened to me before, except it was an enemy manta corpse smacking me into the ground, some times I see entire bot teams crushed beneath manta corpses as they fall to the ground, I now know to shoot them first chance even if they're fyling up in the air dead and such, makes for a nice big explosion overhead and those below aren't squashed, LOL.

                        An enemy tank recently "camped" a spawn location and blew me away about 10 times in a row. Did I get mad? Yes. Did I find it unfair? No.

                        I eventually shot enough Avril rockets to take him out, but as I see it, he was fragging me fair and square. He was at the right place, and the right time and (no doubt) with the right weapon at hand.

                        I like to play using the same tactics as the US Military. And that is to lay low and stake out (or as you folks call it, "camping") the location and attack when the time is right using the best weapon(s) at hand -- including mantas. This is all no different than a Leviathan repeatedly firing at the same node/core.

                        It's called "fighting smart". And I'm sure many others will agree.

                            playing smart is one thing, "laming" is another, however it depends more on the server, if it is an honor server or a normal server

                              “Honor-Code?” Pffft. If it’s in the game it’s in the game.

                              I don’t go out of my way to do what some would call “being lame” or “cheesy,” but I won’t complain about it if it is done to me.
