So, with 2.0.5 playing havoc with my motivations on my home server, I decided to log into the account I don't really give a crap about...my RU server hangar.  I created this account years ago during a holiday event to take advantage of free stuff and didn't return until this patch.

 

While the specialist grind and the equipment changes really stick in my craw, I gave it a go where having a plane nerfed down from the performance that I have come to expect doesn't really make a difference.  You see, while not being able to maintain energy is a crippling flaw here on the NA server, that doesn't apply so much on the RU server, where the human players you encounter really have no concept of play other than "group up in ball, meet in middle, turnfight everything".

 

That is an environment where even a stock Bf.109 can wreak havoc when played right.  Included are the basic tactics for energy fighting at low to mid tiers, equipment, consumable and pilot skill recommendations.  Shout out to wingman Lambo805!

 

Good hunting!

Yeah....these chuckleheads are pretty much live target practice.  Haven't been shot down yet on RU without meaning to get shot down, like right before squall line.  :trollface:

I feel the urge to beat the crap out of Russians on a regular basis these days. Maybe I really should hit the RU servers.

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

Get a collective together and we can all hit them.

well, back to the B...   

 

my hands-down favorite plane in the game, first in the 109 line that i had pointedly ignored for so many years

 

first plane that i spec-grinded (-ground?)...   great choice and great video, Magus!
