Yeah, Im trying to learn from your stallfighting abilities, I never seem to have that kind of luck when I do it :(

You have to have good spatial awareness.

Spatial awareness is like, your minds ability to take known information, and create a 3D image in your head that you can rotate and see all angles of. It is like those puzzles where they give you 2 or 3 sides of an asasortment of blocks, and you have to decide which is the correct 3D image. It is also your sense of direction. Can you look at a 2d map, while inside a building, and use it to navigate without having to constantly re-arrange the map and yourself?

At any rate, studies show playing video games improve spatial awareness, because you constantly use that part of your brain.

Anyways, you use spatial awareness for a lot of things in this game. Basically, you can use it to figure out your targets position based upon the target cam, and his distance from you. This allows you to know which way to turn to get a shot on him, or which way to turn to avoid his fire. All without having to actually waste time turning the camera to look at him. You don't need to see him, the picture is in your head!

It also helps you keep track of multiple targets in the area at once. Like, it is okay to fight someone in an area with 4 badguys, if the other 3 aren't trying to kill you. Using spatial awareness basically lets you know if they are trying to kill you or not, because you can calculate their behavior and thought pattern based upon their relative movement to you. It also lets you know when they change their mind and want to kill you, so you can get out. You need to keep track of more than one guy at all times to survive.


Be able to judge the targets velocity when you engage (if they have full power while flying at that altitude)

You can do this by how fast they close distance, how fast their red dot moves across the map and how fast they maneuver. This is all mostly just subconscious calculation. You will be better at this with experience and good spatial awareness skills. This also lets you know when they are low energy, so you can stop running and come to attack. You don't need to turn around after they have stalled, you want to turn around before they stall (since they won't be able to maneuver anyways), so you have more time to line up a good shot, and so you use less boost.

Use your boost sparingly, only use just as much as needed, so you don't run out.

Goes kinda with the above. I can energy fight planes that I don't have a speed advantage versus by using my boost intelligently. I've done it many times in my p-51d versus other p-51d's.

If you run out of boost you will be reduced to constant course corrections as a form of dodging fire, since most BnZ planes won't be able to out turn the guy chasing you. In this situation, you try to get distance horizontally until they go away and you can get altitude.

I however, hate doing this because it results in taking much damage, and is far too risky. People who fly in squads aren't in too much danger because they can call for help, forcing the chaser to maneuver to let you go, but out of my 1000 or so games, like 4 have been in a flight. I have to find these situations before they happen so I can avoid them, because I won't get help.

Know when to break off and run.

Like, at the start of that the p-51 was targeting me. I could tell that based upon how he changed his motion in relation to me. I was going to attack him first, until he did that. Then I decided to leave him alone and come back when he wasn't trying to kill me. This is because my advantage is much smaller going head on with him, while he is at full energy. I'd likely kill him, but he would get some good shots off on me and potentially damage something, or worse, get a lucky kill.

I try to avoid going head-on at all costs simply because I use a joystick, and a mouse user (most people) would have an advantage over me in a head-on fight, while I would have an advantage anywhere else. So I don't fight on their turf, so to speak.



There is a fine line between caution and cowardice, however. Spend too much time running, it will result in your team having a disadvantage, which can result in a loss. Since this game is limited by time, you can't always wait until you aren't taking a chance
