First how do you want to improve ?

The amount of kill ?

The amount of survival ?

The amount of wins ?

Do you want to specialize in a particular plane or learn them all ?

 

best thing to do in any possible way is to find someone with experience and flight up with them.

Practice practice practice. Trial and error. Sure, you can learn from others, but who is to say that their style and techniques will be right for you?

I tried practicing, end up with loses.  I cant even manage to carry my team when they get slaughtered. I tries come high  at start, once engaged they shoot me and i has to run down. I tries barrel roll run straight, still die when im only better at speed, i tries go into the enemy first got shoot down, i tries stay behind the team got shoot down by enemies when allies all dead. too much loses, thispiss me off

Do you have the radar and minimap activated ? You need to learn to read the radar. Anticipate when someone is targeting you and start evading earlier.

I'd say dont care about loses. My highest record is losing 30 battles in a row - almost half of your current battle count bro. 

But I won't say keep dying, start by trying to survive. :hiding: Im not good at fighter as well guess you need to call capt_hisham in clan, he's da pro.

Fighters are an interesting breed in the current game meta of  Heavies ruling the sky.

More so since there are low altitude fighters and high altitude fighters.

There are several pilots on here that have plenty of video's to help learn from.

Here are some links :

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSmqT1zdcUcvAC6qJCgPddA

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPNx7hmE1XpM_xDw7L_UgnQ

 

You tube has a large selection.

 

One of the things you can do personally is to watch your replays and see what you could have done differently.

Did you climb to engage ?

Did you run into enemy AA ?

Did you fail to get altitude ?

Did you turn and burn when a more maneuverable aircraft.

 

Some fighters like the BF 109 series are great for Boom and Zoom While planes like the Yak-3 are deck fliers and are only good at turn and burn.

Fighters leave a long hard road to learn with their huge variety of advantages and disadvantages.

You are 82 battles in. This is a game that takes patience. I didn't figure it out until about 5000 battles.  A lot of the guys with killer win % had several thousand battles in beta before the game was officially released. So, they came in with stuff figured out. I didn't. I had only 500 battles in beta so I suffered a bit, well, suffered for a couple of years while playing part time. 

 

Don't get caught up in the winning is everything deal. Sure, it feels good to win and have high % of wins, but the primary goal is to have fun. The winning WILL come later if you stick with it. 

 

If you are looking for good low tier fighters, go with the i-15 and i-16 in T2 & T3. Those are good ones for beginners. They are highly agile, responsive, and have good firepower.

the i-15 and i-16 are the best turn and burn fighters in their tiers. The F3F comes close in T3 but doesn't have the roll rate of the i-16.  Turn and burn is always better for beginners than boom and zoom. Boom and zoom looks easy but is difficult to master for someone new. It's also not as fun in my opinion.

Good Luck in your fights bro. Hope you'll be one of our best fighter pilots!

Do you fly solo or with team mates?

 

A good teammate can provide you with a better picture if you lack of such?

A good teammate can clear your six (when needed) thus giving you more time to practice in a certain battle.

 

Practice practice indeed, and know who to target first, so know your opponents capabilities!

 

Have fun!

I flight with clanmates when i on im always feels like giving them headaches so somtimes i fly alone. 

I always target fighter first, sometimes heavy.

Always willing to help if someone is humble enough to ask for it.

And they don't let their EGO override their mouth.

 

Good luck and the biggest thing to remember is do not get frustrated and quit.

We all started out in your position and faced the same odds of improving...

well sort of. Some of of us had to learn versus all humans in 15 vs 15 matches.

Yeah..it was not fun coming up through the ranks and getting my first T5, only to end up in T5-T7 matches lol. How could I forget those 410s. 

 

Moral of the story: Rocket, you have it pretty easy now compared to what some of us had to deal with. Back then, the spankings were real! So, keep at it and have fun.
