Having spent the afternoon flighted up with the redoubtable Reitousair playing fighters the entire time, I managed to get some pretty cool recordings of our defensive plays and I've posted a few up here. Hope people are entertained and enlightened by them. :bajan:

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

Really cool, THX.  Wish they spoke English, though.

It was mostly Rei. All I did was farm bomber flights while he cleaned up the escorts. :p

After watching your gameplay, I can totally see that this was ment to be a PvE gamemode. It doesn't make sense otherwise.

Be sure to check your logic privileges before posting on the forum.

GG guys. 

This was my first flight in the P51D since February, and I'm not a fighter jock, and in any case Rei is way better than I. Last we went 1-1 against you guys last night, which is better than I expected!

I blame that one on me :p I made the stupid mistake right at the opening of the match by first failing to put down a J4M bot and then chasing it into the bomber flight where I promptly got run over by a bomber.

 

The mode is more balanced now but its still unforgiving of little mistakes and that piece of stupidity meant Rei and I were on the back foot all the rest of the match and with the XF5U bot on your team aggressively headhunting him, we were unable to claw back enough ground after my first mistake since I was without fighter cover for most of the rest of the match. Which in a Dora is a bit of a death sentence when there're tier 8s floating around.

 

It was a good game nonetheless o7

you and Rei are both amazing master-level students of this game, and it shows in your scores and WR

 

sigh...  i'm still learning even the most basic skills and strategies, and it shows in your scores and WR 

 

ty, brother

Ah, I see you've uploaded some of the matches we've had, Spirit. I actually have some of the same matches recorded, well... actually they're the only matches I recorded funnily enough, not much of a person for recording really, but, I've uploaded my perspectives on the 1st and 4th videos (the only two I recorded rip.)

 

 

 

Same matches, just the perspective of the escort fighter, not the bomber-hunter.


I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

CHINA NUMBAH WAN

 

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!
