You guys were kicking butt.  Nicely done!  My team mates and the bots on our side were not interested in doing anything useful, but the games were fun anyway.

 

Just you wait....  :evil grin:

Perhaps those who dwell in clans full of people that club the hell out of tier 2 and 3, shouldn't cast stones...  :P

I apologize for the T3 pounding - I am grinding the Tornado line, and T1-4 is sort of a seal-club.  I promise I'm just passing through...

Curious... I thought it was pretty clear I was talking to Prenzlau.   :amazed:

 

Edit: I had briefly considered quoting him, but decided it was a superfluous waste of space... clearly I erred.

Here, I'll lay out my thought process in full... to clear up any confusion.

 

Corvus says GG.

 

Prenzlau's posts can be seen to imply that Corvus is a masochist, and the HVAR folks are sadistic... or, that Corvus is just taking the "abuse" to be accepted.

 

So, I made a "don't throw stones" comment... and somehow JG52 took it as directed at them. :unsure:

I didn't see it as a jab at us, but the post wasn't specific. Truce! We are expanding a bit and picking up lots of new players. Some of the guys have been flighting with them as they level to help teach and officer advice. 

 

I'm still technically, sort of a newer player myself, so I'm still focused in the midtiers (5-7) for a lot of lines and classes).

LOL, that is LOT of subtext.   My comment about seal-clubbing was sort of a general one, spurred by your comment.  I have not been flying the lower tiers lately, except to grind up aircraft lines that I find interesting.  The Yak line, the Tornado line, for examples.  It just so happens that I was sort of seal-clubbing with the Skua, and I *did* feel bad, because I had no intention of doing it, but that's what happened.  Your post came along right at the right (wrong) time, I guess.

 

No, I was GGing S_L_A_Y and his wingman because they played good games.  Flighted at high tiers is really the way to win matches, no kidding.  I was laughing with them, because no matter what my individual effort was, their combined effort gave them wins.  Merely an acknowledgement of reality, nothing more, nothing less.  Prenzlau's post was funny, but I didn't read anything into it.  I suppose I could have, in the context of that clip - I was not feeling machochistic, nor did I think [HVAR] is sadistic - I was playing solo, and they were flighted.  They are good individually, and even better flighted - and I was only one guy.  The numbers don't lie.  I bear no ill-will, and really was laughing last night when we played - we had more than one match where it was me and some other random guy against the two of them.  And the results were exactly what you would expect!  :)

Corvus, I'm glad your a good sport and able to have fun and laugh (at/with) this game. I chatted directly with Cenotaph and hopefully there are no bad feelings and that misunderstandings happen. I still think that vid is funny, and I'm glad you and others found it amusing. In many ways this is an "Alpha Male" game, and that competition happens every time you fly into a battle with other players. The debate about "seal clubbing" and specific styles of play will continue to go on and it should. I was not trying to demean anyone and if I have, I am sorry. It seemed like the proper place for a funny video.

 

Good flying and good hunting!

 

Prenzlau

No worries!  I try and keep my head about the whole business - it's a game, and we're all here to have fun.  Sometimes, you end up on the short end of the stick, and that's just the way it is - don't cry about it, just have fun with it!

Thank you for the games as well!! Sorry the bots were lopsided.. how hard is it to balance bots programmed by you..i guess terribly hard. 

 

Hard a game last night no bot on enemy team scored below 3k.. and no bot on my team scored above 3k... ill let you guess how that ended lol..

 

And as for seal clubbing..i just found that which is the fw 57... even at 50% crew winged legend. I might do this more often muahha

Repurchased it last night.

 

Then proceeded to just destroy seals.  A mere clubbing doesn't do that plane justice.  I can't even imagine what it will be like once I earn enough XP to fully kit it out.
