here s something i just thought GP please have more compititions for the new guys say all under 1000 battles or something to get them going say tier 1 to 3 or 4 . they have to skip 2 tiers for the last comp and i think it puts them back somewhat . above say 1000 battles are automatically not allowed . i m sure this will attract more players and increace player base. Ghost see what you can do

sounds a great idea!

the only problem I can see is people with 2 or more accounts taking part,how are you going to police this?

There's really no way to police this. People will do what they will. In this game, you learn to fly and win, or you don't. Sorry, no participation trophies here.

While it is a good idea as Jetway points out it would be too easy for someone to reroll to become a ringer

​It is a neat idea. Just make the prize something modest though (like free equipment or unlocking the next tier planes). That way alt account ringers probably wouldn't bother with it.

Maybe, I have little faith in the rerolls and would expect them to do almost anything to have an advantage no matter how small for their seal clubbing.

How about create endgame content that gives EVERYONE incentive to work towards.

No, that would not be fair either to them or to you. Have seen people with 40 games in a T6 match. The World of Tanks mentality has no place here with how fast can you get to a Tier X plane. You play the game to learn the game. Skipping over tiers will teach them nothing or they will learn nothing about progression in a tree. That is like someone kicking around a 75% win rate and you find out they are only flying one plane. Let them learn how we learned. You will learn to swim very quickly when you go in the deep end.

well if they have more then one account per server they are in violation, but I see a few that I think are doing just that ( some may be to boost the numbers some just the get a better win rate after they start "flying" better.

Technically they are against the rules but since there is no way to really benefit the accounts on a continuing basis the semi official stance is if you don't use them to cause trouble they won't do anything.

I think this is a great idea! I'll look into something like this in the future!
