After deciding to pick up the Stuka once again to see how it stood post-2.0.5, I realized it's a lot better than I initially gave it credit. It can knock down armored buildings in 3-4 shots, depending on the tier of the battle), and still makes fighters think twice before flying in front of it :trollface::

With the latest update we've received a new event, new planes, some buffs and some nerfs. Among the changes was the ability for Universal Ammo Belts to deal increased damage to ground targets. How good is this buff? Well, here's a video showing it off with the good old IL-20 :popcorn::

With the new event, I kinda have to fly low tier planes to get all the candy I can to make progress towards the rewards available. So my first pick was the Fw 189 C since it was not Specialized yet, and I was... hit with a rather interesting, but somewhat minor, UI bug :amazed::

While quite a few people want the Tornado out of the British multirole line, for whatever reason, I find the plane to be more than capable at both dogfighting and emergency ground pounding. It's one of the most multiroles Multirole Fighters there is, and will wreck havok on any sector it can fly to :great::

I couldn't agree with you more. I love this plane. :rolleyes:

Now that the turret nerfs have been placed, will the B-17G become a shadow of its former self? Will it fall to wary opponents as well as the more aggressive ones? Or will it basically play about the same, making the whole thing kinda pointless? :sceptic::

So I wanted to see how well the Tornado performed after the nerfs it got with 2.0.9. Turns out it plays about the same as before, maybe slightly worse. Makes me wonder if the nerf was even needed on the thing :sceptic::

Hmmm...I love the Tornado and play it a lot. 

The only thing I noticed was that it takes a lot more hits to bring down the fighters. I used to be able to put 3 or 4 good bursts into a fighter and watch it go up in flames. Now, it takes enough bursts to heat up the guns.

I didn't notice much change to the guns. The damage of the 20s was not nerfed, just the burst length (aka, how long you can fire before the guns overheat), which for me doesn't really do much since I tend to burst-fire the things anyways :unsure:.

 

Anyways, it's probably well known that I've been pushing for buffs to the german tier 5-6 GAAs for a while now. With patch 2.0.9 we got a universal buff to GAA firepower (pun intended), so I wanted to see how well these planes benefited from the changes. I think the one that got the best deal was the Ju 88 P :great::

So I decided to take an extended break from the game. It's been getting more frustrating than fun lately, so I think it's for the best. However, before I go, here's a sweet battle I had on my Me 109 TL, trying out a new build for the thing :playing::

With my departure from WoWP, my only real connection to the game is the friends I made. And because of that, I'll be participating in any community events I can from here on out, as well as record the battles I can. Here's my first video on the most recent Community Event :popcorn::

As we played the Community Event, the meta began to shift from the usual focus on ground pounding into aerial dominance above all. GAAs couldn't reach their targets in time and had to play catch-up. Or, you know, say screw it and go Air-to-Air :playing::

My last video on the Community Event 2 itself. There were more matches, but the videos were not quite as interesting, or straight up bugged out one way or another. Stay tunned for an extra battle I did with a handful of people from the event :honoring::

lol... that's where you were...

carrying bombs, killing gripeweed, wylle and bases

nice you dropped the eggs in the soup in the end


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Well, "killing". Either by sparkles or machinegun RNG I never actually scored a kill :(

 

Oh and Ace, stand by for tomorrow's video :)

After the Community Event, a couple of people and I stuck around for one last match. We tried to end up in the same battle at tier 3, and not only did we achieve that, the matchmaker was kind enough to split us between both teams equally. And then something quite unexpected happened :amazed::

I mostly got lucky that the Ground target was right next to me. When I noticed he was on the other side of it, I purposely got behind it to force him to disengage for a few seconds. Then I did that flip to see if I could get him closer to the ground for a bombkill, but he ended up crashing instead. I normally fly sideways to try and avoid head-on rockets, but this time I actually forgot that the I-16 had rockets :amazed:
