To everyone who is potentially on my team in the next few weeks:

 

I have sort of dropped pretty much everything to grind specialist in some of my favorite planes.  On the planes in which capturing sectors is one of the criteria, I might be of service.  Otherwise, I'm pretty much only serving myself.  For those who have flown with me, you know that I try first to be a good flight- or team-mate, and not worry about the stats.  I especially want my Me-262 to be specialized, and that one is a painfully slow grind.  And I just started flying my Yak-15, and it also needs the specialist treatment.

 

So, my apologies in advance - I'll help if it fits my goals, but will be more focused on my goals, not necessarily team goals.

Just a suggestion:

For T8+, grinding tokens may be faster than grinding the mission itself.

Or go for some discounts (max 50% discount) then grind tokens.

That's what I'm going to do with my HG III.

You sir, have let me down.  I counted on you so many times to carry the battle and this is how you repay me?  Well... we will see about this.  

 

I mean seriously, do whatcho gotta do.  I am an avowed token-junkie.  I will do just about anything for a few measly tokens.  Win rate, whatever.  Token rate, yeah baby, that's where I play.    

 

Oh yeah, no need to post on the forums as no one reads this anyway.  We will all just figure out that you are a selfish pr*ck based on how you play.  /sarc

 

[Sad that I have to now post /sarc but you triggered millennials are just too much]

If you ever want to flight at Tier VIII just ask.  I don't care if you grind your planes and we don't get a win.

HI, being new to the game 38hrs and wanting to learn as much as possible. I was interested in what you've all said. Something of note; I got a message, a player with experience like you guys, which noted I was wasting my time shooting down Defense aircraft? Well like CorvusCorax, I replied, Yes I did need to, to gain the experience level required. I'd like to think more will see this post from you all. Cheers

I think, within reason, that folks should play the in the way and manner they wish to.  I say within reason because it drives me nuts watching a new guy using the wrong plane for the wrong job for the whole match.

I'll look you up in-game and add you to my contacts.  If I see you're on, I'll ask you to join a flight.  I'll help keep the bots and seal-clubbers off your tail, and you can learn how to fly your planes organically.

You might want to post your questions on the newcomers forum topic.  A lot of people will give advice.  If you know how to capture video it is a great help for people to analyze your playstyle.  I dunno about this particular advice, if you are over an uncontested capture point, you should certainly shoot down defense aircraft.  If there are a lot of enemy (red) aircraft over the same capture point, maybe that's what they were complaining about.  In any event, defense aircraft help you capture (cap) a sector quickly, so if that's what you were shooting down, probably you were doing it right.  Again, if the enemy was there in great force, then you should shoot them if you can reach them.  By that I mean, if it's a bomber and you are in a Russian low altitude fighter, you are probably better off trying to bring down defense aircraft as you cannot, as a rule, get up to the bomber height.  

 

So much more I could type.  But if I were you, I would post specific questions to the newcomers forum topic and if you include video, you will likely get a lot of helpful advice.  

 

Also, clan up if you are dedicated to the game.  It cannot hurt.

Thanks to all of you. Yes am enjoying the game Immensely immensely.  More practice, learning to stick with one plane for a while. Yes will checkout and join NCF.

Great hunting

welcome...   and you're doing very well so far!      such a great recommendation above, to browse the Newcomer forums

 

i could only add that ADA planes add fewer points to your score, but always count toward capturing the base, even if they venture out of the ring around the base

 

red planes driven by smarter pilots from the other team will purposely lead you out of the minimap capture ring, so that your kill/their death won't contribute

....and kill them you must, lest they turn and catch you napping.  Flying around right in the middle of the capture area, even if you have help, is not a good idea.
