...but no 3x, darn it!

 

i'm usually a noon weekdays EST guy, so i was nervous concerned about the numbers and skill levels of the pilots i would meet today

 

turns out...  mostly just as bad as me, with some notable exceptions

 

except for my excellent flight partner Toggle, most of them were making the same rookie mistakes that i always make

 

i wish that i could remember the name of the guy who did extremely well in the 2-3 battles that we were pitted against him

 

larson_009, maybe lawson_009, whatever your name was...  o7

 

we looked him up...  mid-high 40s WR, but he flew like a champion this afternoon!

And I never bumped into you D: for shame! 

 

Too bad you picked the one weekend in forever that didn't have a x3 for airplane XP but at least there was the x2 crew XP

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

You know that was way passed my bedtime, Trikke.  My eye lids felt like sand paper when we finally called it a day.  It's always good to have a witness when I auger my GA into a building too.  Have I mentioned how much I suck at GA?

In Tanks and Ships population pretty much doubles during weekends...same goes for Planes, but the effect of doubling is very different...

 

Tanks and Ships easily exceed 10k while Planes would barely be at 500 or so, I think WG is still in denial of Planes' population whether it has turned for better or worse...

 

What this means is, that weekends make little difference in Planes as opposed to Tanks or Ships...you are still toasting bots either way.

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

well if we had 2.0 at launch instead of what planes had, might actually have a population. But that's just my 2 cents.

 

WG still has a big job overcoming that stigma of coming out of CBT and how bad it was for most people.


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.

Wasn't my first weekend but I think because the "Japanese March of Nations" sales they didnt do the x3 weekend. Had a great bout this weekend. Still floating around 60-61% wr picked up both tier 7 Japanese fighters and even the tier 7 corsair!
