Ok, gotten a couple of dozen flights in with the update, no d/'s that I can blame on the game, lots I can blame on my ISP. New skill setup, other than the time involved & silver spent on resetting for my flying style, not bad.. My major complaint is the new special effects...
WHO IN THE NAME OF JIMMY DOOLITTLE THOUGHT ROOSTER TAILS WOULD BE A NEAT EFFECT TO PUT INTO THE GAME?????!!
I'm a GA driver, I rely heavily on Altitude camouflage to get in, hit my targets & try to get out before I'm jumped by 2-4 fighters. By the end of the July 4th weekend, I should have broken 2.8k+ flights in my TSH-2.
So here I am 4th game in after the new update, Harbor Battle, plodding along at Angels 2, when I see a honking white streak on the water near the lighthouse. Puzzled, I wing over & drop down to see what was causing it. Lo & behold, it's an enemy AA making a run in on our ships. Dropped right onto his 6 & splashed him 30 seconds later. Good for me..
Bad for me.. So with the new update, every time I drop below 52 feet, (yea, I tested it) I might as well be popping flares, chaff & smoke all at the same time, cause there's a big rooster tail of water, dirt or snow that's pretty much saying "boys, OH BOYS, HERE I AM!"
I could see the tails if I was in boost, but most of the time, I'm like smoking ribs, low & slow..
Speaking of which, time to check the ribs.. Happy 4th Everyone!
