 So, I have been with this game since closed beta, but I can't wrap my head around this new game mode.

It  just doesn't make sense.

Can someone explain to me what the priorities are for winning a battle?

I follow the group, target closest enemies, engage them, target again, and lose......

What the hell am I missing?

Any reply is welcome....

good or bad.

 

 




I've knocked on death's door.....no one answered.....I don't complain much anymore.

Me.

Basically you gain superiority by capturing and holding key areas. To capture an area, kill non-friendly aircraft over it or groups ground targets within. Friendly aircraft deaths over an area moves back the capture of said area (for example, killing a hostile Zero gets you +40 points to capture the area, dying as a Zero gets you -40 points). Each area gives +3 superiority per second and some other bonuses. After a while, the Squall line comes up and stops all respawning (if you're dead before the Squall line hits, you can still respawn. If you die after it hits, you're gone for good).

 

The match is over once either team reaches the superiority limit or one of the teams runs out of aircraft after the Squall line. That's pretty much all the basics aside of "shoot plane, plane go boom :playing:"

Hi old buddy good to see you again.

How about a private one on one flight, and i will teach you 2.0!

First you have to stop playing like 1.9, and start playing 2.0.

Second this game was built around bombers, GA, and capping.

Third look at the hall of fame the #1 spot Ziggie, yep figured it out!

Hey Zig!

Thanks for the invite. I'll look you up. 

It would be great to figure this thing out.

Talk to you soon.

Like Zig said, 2.0 is way different, but since you can do well

in 1.9, you can do equally well in 2.0, even better!

 

The current game is centered on cap points, as well as intensified

dogfight, for someone who likes to rush into enemy fighter group

and TNB, I actually found this version more balanced. You don't 

need to worry about double heavy anymore. (not double pancakes ;))
