I just read a guys battle stats after a battle where I got my clock cleaned. This super newbie had a total of 162 battles in Tiers I through V of which 85% were victories and 79% were survived. Now that's some fast learning. Among this person's attributes was the ability to learn to fly an AR 65 so quickly that he was able to rack up an impressive record of 100% victories and a 93% survival rate in the 28 battles he'd participated in using that airplane. Really? 

 

Do these super noobs really exist, or are people with 20,000 plus battles under their belts creating new handles and starting over?

Could be either way.  Some people can grasp the concept of a game quickly and excel in those games rather quickly, but there are also re-rolls out.  So, it can be hard to tell which is which when you see something like that, most here will probably quickly judge that it is a re-roll.

Chances are greater that the pilot is a refill. There is a slim chance that the pilot picked it up quickly.

Some entire clans are re-rolls, but you have to pretend to be a female to lead it.

Whiskey in Your Water was in ES, then went to TFE, then became a dude, then a chick again, then lawd only knows what he/she/it is now......

I kinda remember some of this (or at least the speculation at the time). Wasn't the other one named Vixen?

Someone told me that desert vixen is now made in of death. Made in of death flights with popper of dogs. Those two could be the aforementioned pilots.

Okay, it works for me.

Here is a theory, two actually.

Pilot plays a lot of various flight apps that are available for phones and tablets.

Has played the countless flight games available on consoles.

Perhaps even had his clocked cleaned on War Thunder.

Just got a new computer and decided to give World of Warplanes a chance.

So yeah i can see it being possible considering low tiers have a lot of bots.

 

That was giving him the benefit of technology but most likely he has decided to start a new account

because he lacks the intelligence to understand the importance of reality and STATS.

28 battles with 100% win rate seems unrealistic even for a reroll in tier I...

If I may offer another explanation, perhaps your Super Noob came from one of the other WoWP servers first?  I started on the EU server and I know a lot of others did also, certainly made it easier in the beginning.  But the Ar-65 is hard to 100% in, nearly everything outturns it.

Why would anyone from EU come & play on NA with less than half the population? Second question, why so many tier 1 games?

That's what I was thinking. I don't think I've ever played even 10 games in a row where I didn't get into at least one battle where one side was so heavily outmatched that the other side was able to totally blow their opponents away in a minute and a half. You know, those fun situations where after killing your first enemy plane you look around just to realize there's only two GAs and you in your fighter left in the game and eight red blips are speeding your way. I'm also an older guy and know there are many who were born with a joystick in hand and I'll never possess their game skills, but it's fun trying. Maybe it's for real. I was just curious.

I've thought the same thing. These are not noobs. Saw one the other night with 171 battles and 171 aces and 11 Gorovets. The drop outs are returning incognito.

One of the renamed accounts was in aces, but he didn't have a problem getting on to TS... He left though.

Yes, I come from EU and play here on NA server for almost zilion years. And yes I play on EU server too. 

And no, I don't play at tier I. Actually I don't remember when was my last game at tier I.

Why I play on NA server when there are less players than on NA server? I like to play this game. More entertainment here. They do not have such a persons over there. I miss some of you on EU srever. From time to time even I can recognize someone of you playing on EU server. I wish they (WG) could join servers somehow. Would be very interesting to have mixed population.

Breezy is pretty much solely dedicated to Star Citizen these days.  I don't think we'll see her around here again.
