I nose it 95% of the time, because Im gonna go find a fun match (unless I see familiar faces on my team, then maybe possible il stick it out.)

 

Its really simple!, im here to have fun!, not go against strangers in obviously superior machines in every single possible way with not just a little advantage, but an outright gross advantage.

 

When there is say a T3-4 match, I always target the lower tiers, Why? because their easier to shoot down.

On lower tiers that really doesn't matter much, but 5-8, that's where it REALLY matters and statistically speaking being on the lower tier of the table, you have 10% chance of surviving, but most likely less then 1% because Newbies don't have T7-T8.

 

Cannot out turn, Cannot out-climb, cannot outgun... Yhe, il not be wasting my time with strangers in that situation.

So I will have to argue on your opening statement and say that in at-least some, if not all cases, you are fundamentally wrong.

 

If you're "nosing it in" at the start of any game, you're doing your team a dis-service. Yes, being two down sucks, but grow a spine and at least try to be somewhat useful for your team and not die for the first 2 minutes. You're never going to advance to high tiers or get better if you suicide at the start of every matchup you don't like.

These are great points. Get this book and really make sense of what to do in engaging fighters.  Fighter Combat: Tactics and Manuvers by Shaw. Pick up the book and learn to fly.

KRUPI necromancied this thread. At first I was annoyed. Then I read all the pages.

 

- I saw names I haven't seen in years, long gone from WoWP, and their ghosts rose out of the posts and waved to me, beckoning. The entire first page of posters no longer plays the game. I flew with many, and called them friends.

 

- I saw after-action battle reports with 13-15 aircraft per side. The ghosts of these battles rose out of the posts and beckoned me. I would kill for a chance to relive some of those fights. Fights where we gallantly flew into battle with screaming engines and 6 friendlies on our tails, and where picking a target was an actual decision.

 

- I saw a game I hardly recognize. The ghost of the game rose out of the posts and beckoned to me, asking me to join the rest of the posters in the graveyard of the game that WG created. I resisted, with great difficulty.

Not fair , on reading all of the replies , it sounds like all you people are very experienced at this game , but for a newbie an old guy like me , its not fair, its hard enough fighting your own tier , never mind 1 or 2 tier higher. and now with the new ammo, forget it about it.

you  have to take what is in here with a grain of salt since the game was made much much easier, so most of the stuff here doesn't happen (or rarely). In fact the game is in the state it is in due to the adventure of "making everyone a winner".

 

Yes, experienced we are you are right on that, but how did we get all that experience?

 

lots of patience here if you want help, almost anyone will sit down with you and fly a bit. no patience what so ever for complaints about fair here, got some old hands here and we walked both ways up hill to school everyday.

 

 

GL out there!

 

Don't forget to ask for help!

Very useful information here. It really helped me improve my survival rate and skill set.
