Still getting good results.

 

Relative to your results in other planes you are, but not relative to other players.

Aw, he'll get better eventually. Took me over a month of conscious effort to get my CP average into the 7k range. Then the Me 262 knocked it right back down, the bloody gremlin.

I'll take what I can get.


This isn't dueling pistols at dawn. This is war. You sneak up behind your enemy and you bash him over the skull. I know this, so does Scar. That's why I'm gonna kill him.

I won a match by dogfighting a Pancake in my RB-17 after my bomb reload bugged out after the first drop.  I spent the match assisting with both nose gun and tailgun.  Near the end, I managed to pull a veteran F5U away from a zone it was set to capture to save the win after the rest of my team was dead.


 

 The poor "player bot" didn't know what to do.  If it tried it's usual ai routine for HF (extend, gain range and U-turn), I would shoot it with the nose gun, if it got behind me, I would shoot it with the tailgun.  All the while, I was pulling it away from the sector it wanted with the massive boost reserve. He finally turned back to the sector so I shot him with the nose gun again to keep him off the sitting ducks defense bots.  A surprised human teammate (I think there were actually 3 or 4 humans each side that game, rare for tier 8!), actually messaged me that it was fun watching me dogfight with the RB-17 and that he thought the match was going to be a loss (the other team had more living fighters, all bots, and I was the "last hope").  Good times.


 

Oh, and for you mouse + KB guys (I'm one) set keybinds for yaw.  Bombers LOVE yaw turns.

 

How else would one play without mouse & keyboard?  Are joysticks actually feasible?

I'm looking forward to the B-36 (Tier 8 Premium?). 700 x 50kg bomb loadout would be nice, maybe drop in sticks of 100 at a time.

 

With the size and bombload of the B-36, I'd be surprised with anything short of tier 10 for it.  If they give it its first defensive compliment, the thing will be a veritable death star with tons of 20mm guns pointed basically in every direction.

 

But oh do I want the B-36 as a bomber....Maybe give it nuclear bombs just so this game can have nuclear bombs.  It would be amusing even if they ridiculously nerf it to be balanced.

Inba dropping a nuclear bomb forces a premature squall line :ohmy::trollface:


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

If they nerf nukes what's the point. If they ever introduce the B36, give it the option to carry its own escort fighter

Mushroom cloud.  Purely aesthetic.  They could hypothetically do something similar with earthquake bombs.

I would love it if they added nukes. Talk about a way to make the game stand out from the competition!
