Ace Closetermann (used to give GA a Destroyer too)  and we lose hard... real hard.

Our fighters (especially a Mosquito) were doing almost nothing but killing GT's and dying over enemy AA.

Yes, though it's  a rather poor calculator. It punishes for hitting ground targets.

Always great when one of our ILs gets more kills than the rest of the team put together. ;)

Sounds like chest beating to me. Is there a reason for this post other than "i'm better than you"

Umm.. sure, I'm not on the top 50, but I am better than you.... give me a break...

 

I'm just talking about fighters blaming my IL's for a loss and I got half the kills.

A facepalm isn't exactly all seriousness

Why does it matter to you what anyone post in off topic? 

 

OP, I feel your pain. I've had several aces with a loss, many ace +1 with a loss, a few Ace +2 kills with a loss.....  But never with a GA.  You know me though, I'm not really a GA guy.  The only two I have are the Pigasus and the LBSh.  The Pig because it was free, and the LBSh because bomb kills brighten my day.

Man that was hard to bear for you. Fighters attacking ground targets despite a sky whale on patrol.

It doesn' but when you think about it, this post really isn't off topic. Off topic is "Obama Sucks" (just an example)

WHAT IS THIS SORCERY!?



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

Webeus, what you are doing is called "trolling".

 

Rocket, I know the feeling. I was in a match yesterday where me and my GA got 11 ground targets, yet our Corsairs were shooting up ground targets and ignoring their fellow fighter pilots in need.

Hardest words to hear when you fly a GA is "you are the last hope"  lol :amazed:

No..I'm not trolling. I'm asking questions. Looking for an answer. Trolling is done off the back of a boat. I don't own a boat.

are you into fishing WEBEUS?

 

But back on topic... it sucks people don't know how to play YET, but give it time and there will me a lot more people.

 

Suggestion for WG.. Target CA (Combat arms) population.  The games are the same control style, and playing speed... and that community is looking for another game because of the hacks rep of the game and some other issues, which can be capitalized on -  I will elaborate in the suggestion section of the forums. 

 

Edit: sorry for using another game name on these forums, I am using it in a negative light.

Seen stuff like this way too often.  WG needs to put better training out there for new pilots. Not necessarily how to teach them to dogfight, but typical roles for each class of plane, etc.  Just reinforce that LF and even some HF don't have strong enough guns to deal with GTs effectively.  Reinforce that this is a team game and you need to support your teammates by using your aircraft in the best role possible.  Obviously these roles aren't in concrete.

play the mossie properly and you can get a quick 9 targets (first 2-3min) then climb and start your usual heavy run and can get another 1-3 air kills! It was how i got my GT's in beta but boy to get hated on. I Do hate the dead people comments, especially when its terrible advice or commands and you just want to say "no wonder your dead".

 

 

cheers,
