Strange occurrence

Recommended Posts

Was playing a battle - had a recon group in the second floor call in for smoke about four blocks down the road.

When the first shell came down on them it wiped out my recon group.  

Is this just fratricide or a bug?

If this sounds stupid I’m still not very good at this game.

Yeah, just bad luck. IIRC FO's in real life can tell the FDC's that the target is "Danger Close" whereby the FDC takes extra care in doing its calculations. This takes longer before the first rounds appear of course, but it can help prevent friendly fire.

P.S. I'm not asking BFC to add this as a feature as it's really rather rare. Four blocks isn't that far away so it would be danger close. What type of spotting team were they I'm betting they weren't a designated TO&E  F.O. team.
