Flight up, choose OP aircraft, gain highest altitude possible at start, situational awareness...and coffee..not too much or the jitters affect your aim.

I know this might be giving away trade secrets, but team work seems to be a deciding factor more than any other single behavior. Having the bots in your favor never hurts.

Experience only counts when you're doing it right in the first place.

After recently converting to being a joystick user, there are several things I've just now noticed that I didn't know while being a mouse player.

First of all, how much your airspeed affects your flying at the minuet level. If you are at full throttle, in level flight in a Spitfire I, as your airspeed increases you will start to pitch up without any input into the joystick (thus requiring forward input to keep yourself steady in a climb). As you pitch up, the increased angle of attack generates more lift and you will pitch up more. On the same note, the game interprets using the flaps as generating fixed amount of lift, so that in level flight if you apply the flaps you will pitch up. If you throttle down to 0% thrust, when you reach a certain airspeed your wings will not generate as much lift, requiring backward pressure on the stick to keep yourself level (in the case of the Spitfire I, this airspeed is at <270km/h). THIS IS WHY, it is so important to keep your airspeed up in the light green zone and applying the flaps when tightly turning in a dogfight. Flying too slow means that you are actually fighting against the plane to keep yourself in the turn.

Study the team lists while the battle loads. Come up with a plan that prioritizes which targets you want to engage first (biggest threat to smallest threat). Be prepared to improvise when the sh!t hits the fan and you have to throw your plan out the window.

First in is the first dead. It's generally a good idea to let the bots go first. Instead of charging right away, turn in wide circles a couple times to get the everyone to form into a tighter group, that way your firepower is grouped together instead of spread out when the enemy comes.

First of of all Alcohol... lots of that, less frustration when you get in a bad match

Flight up with folks that you enjoy, usually use TS or any chat (helps with coordinating attacks,tease each other or clear tails, making plans etc.)

Pick a plane that works with your flight mate, help with their daily missions(or yours)

If having a bad night, more alcohol and change tactics, planes or flight mates.

When all else fails, rage quit and drink self into stupor so you can get up early and go into work with a hangover!

Find something with R4Ms (or the equivalent) stay low - destroy the heavy fighters that dive on you. :teethhappy:

Pray for a nob in your team who attack enemy GAA in a LF or MR at the beginning and drag all enemy bots at the deck.

This game typically takes 200 battles to not s*ck. Try not to get discouraged.

 

Here are some very basic tips:

 

  •  Learn the 4 plane types - Fighter, Multirole Fighter, Heavy Fighter, & Attack Aircraft. You need to understand their strengths and weaknesses not only when you fly them, but when you face them.
  •  Don't rush up the tiers thinking a better plane will make the difference. You need to learn to walk before you can run. Take it slow and develop your skills. You'll need them at higher tiers.
  •  Don't be first. First to red is usually first dead. If you lead the pack the enemy will see you first and you will have several planes attacking you at once. Hang back in the pack!!!
  •  Stay with the pack. In any type of fighter, you need to stay in/very near the pack to get any support. It's easy to stray while chasing, but you have to maintain situational awareness.
  •  Situational Awareness comes with experience. Know where you are, what's around you, the status of the supremacy bar, where your team is, and where the enemy is. Try not to lose track of any of it during a battle.
  •  Altitude is life. With the exception of Attack Aircraft (often referred to as GAs - ground attack), starting at the top of the green band or a bit above it will give you a better chance to pounce on your prey.
  •  Learn energy management. Poor energy management leads to you stuck near the ground in a fighter with no momentum or boost to improve your situation. Keep your speed up and try to save boost for escaping.
  •  Don't fight over red. New players are eager to rush out into battle not paying attention to where they are on the map. Enemy AA (anti-aircraft guns) will kill you! Draw the enemy to green and let your AA help.
  •  Bombs don't spoil. Don't load bombs planning to hurry up and drop them, then fight planes. You will likely die before you reach a target of value or you'll lose a ton of energy and end up low and vulnerable.
  •  Don't let yourself get angry. If you do, walk away for a bit. An angry pilot makes more mistakes and just gets angrier.
  •  Watch others after you die. Use the spectate option rather than going back to the hangar. Learn from both the successes and failures of others. See what they are doing differently that has them still alive.
  •  Have fun. It's a game. If it becomes a source of nothing but frustration, then you're doing it wrong.

 

Good Luck!

:honoring:

 

 

Regarding bots....

View PostZapperguy, on 12 August 2016 - 11:41 AM, said:

I have had moderate success with the latest iteration of bots following commands. You have to look at the big picture, not just use bot commands as a panic button.

 

To have better luck:

  • You need to stay with the pack - Do Not Lead !!!  If you are in the lead, you will be the first spotted by the ENTIRE enemy team. First spotted is often the first killed.
  • Let the bots lead as you climb in the direction you want them to go. Climbing will slow your forward progress allowing some of the bots to take the lead, but they will go in the direction of a human that is with them even if he/she is not in front. Remember, multiple humans means the bots can't follow everybody if you split up. Coordinate with the humans on your team.
  • Don't use F7 preemptively! They will reply "Negative" every time, which is appropriate. F7 is "Clear my tail" - enemy are chasing you and you are in imminent danger. I only use this when I have multiple enemy chasing me. And again, you must be near/in the pack. They will not help you across the map.
  • F4 is not an effective command, save the keystroke.
  • F2 is your friend. "Coordinated attack on..." Your job before you think about using it, is to lock the enemy you want targeted. Letting the game autolock whatever is in front of you, and then pressing F2 works sometimes. But, I use "next target" in my control setup which allows me to toggle through the available targets until the one I want help with is in the little target window and the game says target locked. Then I press F2.
  • Didn't work? Were you still near the pack? How many red vs how many green were there? Were they actively engaged?  Did you answer your bots' "SOS" cries? If your bots are right on an enemy bot's tail or have an enemy bot chasing them, they won't break off to help you attack a different plane. You have to be aware of the bots' situation as well as your own. They are your teammates, such as it is.
  • Situational awareness is something that comes with experience in this game, continually improving over time (if you're doing it right). Don't get target-focused and lose track of both where you are on the map and where the enemy and your team are.  It can happen to anyone but newer players are the most susceptible.
  • Finally, if you are near the ground and your team is at altitude fighting above you, then they generally won't break off making themselves easy targets as they dive to help you. 
  • If you are in a GA being attacked by another GA at the start, bots won't come down for you, but you shouldn't really need them to.

 

Good luck. Hope some of these tips help.

:honoring:

There's only one equivalent...the Mighty Mouse...

 

...substitute that for ShKAS at low tier...

know the planes you face, be a numbers cruncher with plane stats, keep the bots in a tight formation, if alone ,know your crafts strengths and weakness. and stay close to your wing as long as you can. ,  energy management,

If you use M/KB do yourself and your teammates a favor and bind a key to pitch up.
