Such a tiny little thing! Moves like a Ki-162. So nimble I couldn't keep up with a joystick :teethhappy:

Uh, oh.  Someone is going to have a fit that you called it a "Gobling."

No worries.  I was giving you just a slight ribbing.  I had considered always calling it a "Gobling" when writing about it, on purpose.  You know, just because.

 

Carry on!

You aren't alone in those sentiments... most folks I know won't call it anything -but- "Gobling" now.
I don't want to hurt you... I just want to kill you!

Yup these birds went on sale at least at 0800 EST today.  I bought one while the shower was warming up.

I like the fact that the Goblin is being used in live battles.  I hear some people are only using them in training rooms.  I guess even a sub 60% w/r is worth trying hard to protect.... .wouldn't want it to go lower now....

That is funny you made me have a chuckle thanks. I hope this doesn't become like WOT where it is stat driven and at times toxic because of it but your point is up front. I do understand why it is prudent to use a training room to get a feel for it makes sense on what you are saying.

I am watching some Russian dude on YouTube who played this thing on stream, wow, the XF85 can flat go.....it’s fast enough to lead you on, then it can turn tight enough to get out of gunfire.  It looks like fun.  

 

I hope there is an is an event to win it, but if there isn’t I won’t be able to get one.  I have a heart condition and have no income, so my finances allow me just a pittance to put into games per month, and no way am I getting to $57.  Enjoy, just don’t shoot me down too much.

Hey all, let's please try and stay On-Topic here.

 

So far, I don't even have my Goblin to test out, but am excited to once I get a chance to play a few!

Your reminders seem to be having little effect.  If the software is sophisticated enough to give time outs...

 

The plane is an absolute blast to fly.  I can't wait to blast around in it some more.

I'm on the fence.  Does it signifigantly earn more credits than t8?

 

I don't particularly enjoy flying fighters, especially if its Americans and their machine guns.

I am going to call my plane the "Gobbling Gobling"from now on.  If WG comes out with a Thanksgiving Day decal of a turkey, damn  I am going to permanently slap that bad boy on the side of the "Gobbling Gobling" so fast!

I was faffing about at tier 8 - 9 today (did a flight with mnbv_fockewulf)... got into a bunch of games with Goblins in them but never saw one. They're like... these mythical creatures that float outside the realm of human perception. One day I will find one and kill one. But not today, looks like.

Hmm I was able to turn inside a Assaulter while with a 4 point pilot.  I just wondering if he was hollering"9.8! 9.8!" At the screen as an Assaulter if flown right should out turn a Goblin.  Hint it was a case of quicker vs faster.

You mean Attacker. The Attacker only has an equal turn rate with the Goblin (10.3s). On top of the Goblin's superior climb and roll, I'm pretty sure you can easily turn inside an Attacker if he isn't damn careful with his maneuvers.

I hope this event will just have more 'realistic' missions (than Do-335/XF15 event) to get it ... never even seriously tried those.
