so i rammed into a friendly ship accidently. pressing S does nothing as the other ship somehow drags me along like a magnet. wth is this? the game should have fixed this by now. how about any time you ram into enemy you are automatically bounced backwards and disengage?

Usually when you ram an enemy you both exploded.

It has to do w/the angle you made contact...sometimes you do just back right away (usually when the ship you have rammed is almost stopped) but when the other person is moving at fast speed it seems like you should be reversing but actually you need to counter steer when reversing or your ship turns into him & causes you to "dig into" him instead of backing away.

Counter steering is most understandable on 2 wheeled vehicles (motorcycles & bicycles) than 4 wheeled vehicles (& is explained most clearly in the book "Twist of the Wrist" by super bike racer Keith Code) but ships follow more of a "2 wheeled" steering formula than a "4 wheeled" steering formula.

You, sir, are truly prolific recently.

 

Tell me, what do you truly desire?

It took me forever to find this again, but....

 

I've tried to set it up to start at the right part, but if it doesn't for whatever reason just skip to 7:37.

you mean like this? haha. i was in reverse for a 1 min and 20 seconds while he dragged me along and i actually sped up. its been fixed since i posted this to WG. it should be more of a bounce effect.

Looks like a hard Port might've helped being dragged at ahead half.

I had fun ramming a Hindenburg off a Montana with my Grozovoi a couple weeks ago. It was good for some laughs in chat.
