American F3F...turns quick, with 50cals, bombs, more health...all you asked for. The F2A after it is great too, but the US carrier (now Multirole) fighter line as a whole is quite rough.

 

...but folks frown on having ordnance on your planes...outside of rockets for A2A actions. But just try what you want and find your own path...slots are effectively free, so that's something to get better for.

 

As for the "Light" Fighter...it is called as such so not to be confused with other type of fighter that is the Multirole fighter (AKA ordnance-capable fighters)...As for Ground Attack (GA), it rolls off the tongue (and keyboard) better than "Attack Aircraft", and that official designation would get you confused with Anti-Aircraft (AA) gun/artillery/defenses/whatever.



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.

Here's an idea...go down them all. Don't be in a rush to go down any of the lines. My advice is to stick to tier 1 and 2 until you master all the lines. (about 300 battles) Build up enough XP to by all the tier three lines. By that time you will have learned the basics and more. Once you've researched and played all the tier two lines you will have a good idea as to which type of plane best suits you.

I-16's if you want a plane that can fly circles like a wasp and sting like a bee.

One has 6 rockets.

The best line for a new player is :

" When I am not on vacation I play with the Trojans "

I found it to be easier on the face than

" Do you want to slap me now or do we go back to your place and .........."

The russian lines are pretty easy for a new person. The i16's are great little planes. At t5 the Russian line branches off into 3 distinct lines and one sub line. The mig line which starts with the mig 3 is a high altitude turn plane. It can out turn any of the other high flying planes at high altitude. For the other planes in that tier use speed and altitude advantage called boom and zoom. The mig line is potent the whole line, except the t6 i-210. Get past that and you are rewarded with the i220.

 The La line does not perform as good as the mig line at higher altitudes, but is pretty nimble. Stay at medium to medium high altitudes but don't keep your nose pointed up too long. The big threat to the la line is the spitfire line when they are at a similar altitude. Out turn the high altitude  planes like mig line, german fighters, US fighters, and heavies. Stay at, a higher altitude than yaks and Japanese planes. Those can out turn you, but you are faster. Keep your energy in case they come after you. That line is great from start to finish. The only semi awkward one in that line is the t9 la160. The middle gun is the 37 and that is just an awkward gun. Get the 30mm's as fast as you can. The stock guns don't do enough damage for the tier. 

   The yak lf line is the pure turn and burn plane line for Russians. The only other planes that can out turn these are the Japanese planes. Those are the big threats add they also operate at a similar altitude level as the yaks. Out turn everything else. These planes get harder to do well in higher tiers as engagements get faster and faster and the discrepancy in altitude gets greater and greater. 

   The sub line I mentioned earlier is the yak multirole line. It is a yak plane with huge cannons. It is only t5 through t7. If you have decent ping and decent fps you can learn those cannons. The plane flies like the LF yak, just not as maneuverable as the yak LF line. It makes up for it with the huge cannon. When you get the cannonsto hit, they one shot full health lf's and mr's. They will nearly kill full health heavies with one shot. If you hit a heavy with 70% or less hp with those cannons, chances are they are going to die. One shot kills with those cannons put a smile on my face.

I would recommend the German line.  It has all 4 classes of aircraft, and all are decent.

it takes you 300 battles to obtain 2000 xp?

Good option. It is called taking your time and learning the basics of the game and such.

No need to rush up the tiers.

That is not the point. The XP, at whatever rate it is gained can be used later.

I am sure bud is just throwing a figure out there.

Although it is overly extremely exaggerated to the point of gaining XP by botting matches. ....roflmao.

There is very little to learn at T1 T2, and should not be played more than 2 games a piece in any line unless those are the planes you want to fly.

disagree. New players need a bit of time at the slower game speed to get used to the controls and basic mechanics. In hindsight, I wish I had spent MORE time in those tiers. I still have a blast flying my i-15 and Stosser at T2. Fun planes.

It's only slower to get to the initial engagement. The fight is quick and relentless, offers very little in education because all you're doing is spinning in circles chasing red dots. None of that is applicable at higher tiers, minus target selection, which can be learned at higher tiers.

 

There is a reason everyone in this game so god awful at it. I wouldn't be hard pressed to find out that reason is because they think they're learning something constructive at low tiers.

We can agree to disagree. I like the subtle jab you just took at me. Anytime you want that battle in the training room, it's on.

That jab was at everyone, don't personalize it. The harsh reality of the game is there are a handful of pilots worth strategizing to beat, 99% of the pilots playing don't require a second thought. The talent level in the games current state is at an all time low, because even those who used to be half way decent are so bad from only dealing with bots it's disappointing.

You aren't giving people enough credit...and frankly...you haven't played enough lately to make that judgement. There are still quite a few really good players on at various times. No. It's not the golden age of the game. But, we aren't all exactly scrubs either.  There are some fairly new players that I would deem to be very good and have been surprised when facing them. Play more. We need you.

I think you mistake the occasional good performance as talent instead of a situational moment. Consistency is what makes a pilot good or not, as every pilot will get derped occasionally even the best ones. I play enough to see the same pilots suck that I hear you and other refer to as "good" on this forum all the time.

you have no idea who i am even referring to. I know you like to think you are the be all end all of talent evaluation in this game, but you aren't.

The best thing about things like talent are, they are subjective. So to share my opinion should not be offensive to anyone but those who are not confident in theirs.

 

When pilots routinely make poor decisions, struggle in basics, and don't excel in more than one category, I classify them as not good.

 

For everyone else around here, talent is a mixture of class, the occasional good performance, and personality. I like a lot of people in this game and don't think they're good and will tell them that, most people will tell someone they're good just because they like them.

 

I'm not sure where you fall in in that category as the three times I have seen you in game you have been god awful. Each time you've had an excuse, but three is not enough to judge you, and stats are valueless in that assessment, because some current players with the best stats are some of the more awful pilots in this game.
