I'm close to the LA-160 and thought it's time for a review how I performed in the LA-9. I came across the following. I do more damage and score more kills in the LA-9 than in the I-250 however the win rate, compared to the I-250, is way lower. I've been flying both planes solo or flighted. Is here anybody who could explain what is going on or shares the same experience ?

Maybe you are more cautious in the I-250 and just throw yourself 

into the fireball with the la-9 going down in a blaze of glory but taking

more enemies with you.  Being alive at the end of the match can

dictate the win just as much as kills. Look at your survival rate for

both planes, this may give the answer.

The I-250 is a better altitude fighter.  So, if the win depends on altitude (heavy fighter is all that's left or taking out the high alt fighters in the beginning) that is your ticket.

I will share the opposite experience.I have a slightly better win rate in my La9 compared to my I-250. Its only a few percentage spread though. Like Dave said, check the survival ratio on each plane. when you compare more points it will give you a better picture. You might also be going in heavy on the furball, but not surviving the battle. Once you die and you are the only human in the battle, its a good chance that you will lose. Especially if the enemy team's human(s) are alive.

 

 

 


 

Just a heads up, the La160 will be different than the other planes in this line. Luckily they did make it better with one of the patches, Grinding it was painful. Last few times I played it, they made it better. Try to free xp past the 37mm cannon, that thing sucks(or at least it used to). The 30mm cannons used to shoot like the TA 152 30mm cannons, but they are better now(they shoot faster).

I bet you have more influence on the outcome of a battle with the 250's altitude advantage than you do with the LA-9.

Thank you for the feedback and the heads up for the La-160. The La-160 is in my hangar now. I've spent all my silver for the purchase. The virgin flight is on hold.

I think the la160 was hard for me as I didn't have the 262 or the Ta 152 yet. Back before 1.9 the top guns on the la 160 shot slow like the 262 and the ta 152. When it hit, it did cause some good damage though. Post 1.9, the 30's shoot a bit faster.

La 9 is pretty slick if you dogfight mid high alt early game to bottom pit late game. Honestly the I-250 is quite inconsistent with the 37s, if you don't land your shots, but as a stall fighter it has absolute altitude supremacy.

the I-250 will face more of the best players in the game....as it will be high where those players are So its win rate and other stats...would almost always be lower due to these more extreme conditions of having to face off verse p=80s me 262 and a host of other uber aircraft in human hands

huh? that makes no sense if you really think about it. If you are in either an La9 or an I-250, you still have to go against players in 262's and other high alt planes. Regardless of which plane you are in.

It's honestly possible you do better in the LA-9 as well. WR is indicative of performance- this is true. But that's more on a macro level. If you have 50-60 battles, luck can play a huge part. At 50 battlesif you ran into an enemy flight who dominated three times, your WR just went down 6%.

The (not so) amazing Chokai is back! And he's hit all his personal goals sans one! Seriously though, nice to be back, looks like he game is improving. I continue to try to recruit new people.

yep. the luck thing is definitely true, not just to those planes, but others. Whenever I choose certain planes, I always get the potatoes on my team(unless im flighted up) and the other team gets an OP flight plus other players that are decent to good.

Exactly! Which is why I will always say- average an entire line, or your overall WR- that's indicative. Oneplane? Not at all.

 What's kind of funny is that majority of my planes that have higher win rates are my higher tier planes. I started with a crappy computer and it took me a little bit longer than average to get decent at this game(looking back it was the handicap of my laptop). I didn't get a good computer until about 10k battles give or take. So all my high battle lower tier planes will have a lower win rate than my higher tier planes that I started playing with my new computer.
