Still early days for you :) you'll learn how to not get ganked as you go up. Doesn't mean you won't, but it won't happen as often and you'll learn how to deal with it. Especially in a Spitfire, getting ganked is often just an excuse to rack up a massive kill count

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

"three players" could easily mean just one human and two bots, or even three bots

 

you'll learn that the bots are programmed to do certain things well but not others, and you'll learn those tendencies with time

 

it's the hardest game in the WG trilogy, so don't beat yourself up, brother 

 

even though i still do, after years of trying to get better... but it's really addictive

Yes to the above.  I think it also helps to find your niche, that is, what type of plane suits your style?  Multi-role, HF, GAA, LF, bomber?  All can be fun at times but I notice most players gravitate towards the planes that work for them best.  You just have to figure that out.

Find a friend, flight up. A wingman is great to keep your tail clear. 

 

If you fly straight into a scrum, it will be very chaotic. If there is a middle cap, it will be a meat grinder. Work the outside, pick off planes that isolate themselves 

 

Watch the mini map. Watch out for planes pointed in your direction. 

 

Don't rush up the tiers. You can earn new planes faster than your skills are learned. The higher you go, the faster the game. You'll need mechanical parts anyway, they are gotten at low tiers. Just farm them and get comfortable.

 

If you are flying a boom and zoom plane, don't turn to follow. Come in hot, hit him, and if he turns let him go, just zoom out of there and come back.

Yes, and find a clan.  More wingmen and some learning.

Clans get started and sorta fade away.  The ones with the most players from 1.9 days are currently at the top because of an exploit in the clan stats.  One year ago this month this has been going on and they are 'working on it'.

 

It's why so many clans keep inactive players on their rosters.  If they played pre-2.0 they have stats that actually count towards clan stats.

 

:facepalm:

 

This does not apply as much to FK, RAW, and OWSS.  They are very active flying clans with fewer dead bodies kept around to take advantage of the exploit.  If they ever (and after one year I am losing hope) fix the exploit I think those three clans would be in the top three.  In what order I don't know.

 

:sceptic:
