It seems i do something wrong, because my claims always says witness : nobody althought i wrote I had witnesses .... ALthought I take the name of my flight wingmans before the flight.

Those are all pending claims it seems. Wait untill they are confirmed. (if they are) I think it will tell you who 'witnessed' the crash to help confirm the kill.

I was having problems getting confirmed kills, although I have just had 6 confirmed on a row, since I changed how I fill out the claim form, I now fill it out in the following way in the description field.

 

1 [aircraft name & type] hit solidly in the [engine/wingroot/cockpit]* area, seen to go down [out of control/in flames/spinning} and hit the ground.

 

*delete where applicable

 

Also if you shoot a wing or some other piece of the aircraft off if you work that into your description it helps.

 

Thanks

I have yet to get a confirmation on any plane i have set on fire or knocked a wing off. Kinda a bummer since those are always so satisfactory. I set one plane on fire less than a mile from my home airfield and did not get credit. claims are silly that way sometimes.
