I cracked the top 100 in the HOF. As of today, I'm 100. Probably doesn't mean much to you folks or the old guard who discount all play after bots. But, I set a goal to be a top 100 player way back when. Today, that goal is realized. Now... top 50 is on my radar. Watch out!

To have a goal is always good :P

They changed it a few months ago so that after a few weeks players drop out.  Moving up in the hall of fame now has at least as much to do with continued population atrophy as it does the ease of stat padding in the bot era.  It's even more meaningless that most things in this game.

 

You want to keep moving up, just keep playing.  Don't even have to play any better.

I think BOT is worried that I'm slowly creeping up on him at 71 :-)

23 minutes isn't too shabby when you consider the saying "15 minutes of fame"

I'm right and you know it though.  You can do absolutely nothing and still move up as people drop from the rolls in that poorly named "hall of fame."

 

And besides, it's been well established that the only personal stat that's ever meant anything is the number of Thunders.

I will have 2000 very soon. You can expect me to make a big deal about it. Stay tuned.

Thunders are much like the Hall of Fame. Meaningless, and from the looks of it they buffed rockets, or nerfed GT's. So they're even more meaningless. Less ordnance kills more crapnow.

Congrats on reaching your goal and good luck on your next. Without any end-game, personal goals are one of the only reasons to keep going.

:honoring:

Most stats are meaningless now, I agree. But Thunders still take skill & strategy - bots or no bots.

I have 1927 so you have a bit more time before the self-congratulatory post from me drops.

Thunders take under 90 seconds to achieve if that's all you're looking for. Doesn't take much strategy or skill.

Yesterday I killed a ship with a little gun spray and one rocket pod launch on my 94D. Which last time I played it took all 16 to take a ship down, which can only mean GT's are even softer now than they ever were.

 

Back in my day when you had to walk to school up hill both ways in the snow with no shoes, GT's took hellacious amounts of ordnance or 4 or 5 passes with guns. That's when i got all my Thunders Bay BEE!

Depends on what plane you use. I like getting Thunders in all planes, not just IL-40s where it's a snap. Hevay fighters too. Me262s!  P228s! P-47Ns! F2Gs! All sorts of planes. I like challenging myself.
