It is a fun game.

But long load times and Air Defense Beaufighters endlessly ramming you (I can't seem to avoid them) is making me play less than I'd like.

Have you tried killing the ADA HFs -before- you engage the LF's, or the red team?

 

If you pay attention to the HFs first, avoiding the gun passes and potential rams on their first pass isn't too difficult... this allows you to get on their tail, and end their impact based reign of terror.

 

 


I don't want to hurt you... I just want to kill you!

Excellent advice!...I do exactly the same. Climb, Kill the HFs first...if you pay attention they fly in series, let the first one go, and go after the second. ..if you see them flying right towards you make a  "barrel roll" ....you will receive some damage... but you will avoid the crash...

The game is full of technical problems, I'm tired of the bugs...

Yes.

What usually happens is I enter cap area and the beaufighter is coming at me or turning towards my direction.

I've avoided the head on attack and try to evade early, in order to get behind it or go after something else but: WHAMO.  It hits me.


 

Very frustrating.

Seems to be the only AI fighter I have this problem with.

What fighter are you flying? I hunt ADA Beaufighters for fun on my Tornado and Corsair, even on my Hurricane II. I dodge slightly downwards and wait for them to pass, kinda like a spiral. If I get it right, I'm on the heavy's tail as soon as it goes by, but I always avoid the ram. In general I do this against faster aircraft I can't go head-on with


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

I try to get some altitude advantage on the heavy ADA's so they can not easily head-on me and when more planes are attacking, wait for them to get distracted and shoot them in the back ;-)

But they will try their best to ram you in a lighter plane, always ... Beaufighters, Me-410's and J4M's.

The only plane I regularly have problems engaging ADF heavies in is the Yak-1... nice plane, pity it gets stopped by mountains and Kobe Bryant.

 

I still get hit though - most recent was an Me410 ADF that flew straight through me chasing a bot on my team while I was chasing a Red Team Flapjack.

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

I mostly fly tier 4+5 fighters and MR...

Me 109, FW 190, Spitfire 1a, Wildcat.
 

What has helped is not being the 1st plane there (let the other guys get focused), which goes against my nature.

ADA will focus you down if you're alone in the cap. Heavy ADA always work in a pair, so if you attack one keep an eye open for the other

a top 10 pilot once recommended that we take a cap by starting at the top and working down, and rarely do i remember good advice 

 

but i do remember that one in each battle, and the let-others-be-the-bullet-sponges one, too
