These things are infesting low Tier games right now, making a very difficult situation for many Tier 2 and 3 planes.  Will they be nerfed after the holiday event is over?

Its the new Spitfire Scourge, now at tier 3....they aren't very durable though. My Fantome with its 20mm cannon and guns shreds them apart when they decide to go head-on with me...I get called a hacker a lot because of low information flyers who 1), dont know good flying tactics, and 2), don't understand the strengths and weaknesses of the planes they fly and those they fly against... I just laugh at the sea of salt that flows!

Fantome is a Tier 4.  I'm facing these things a lot in Tier 2 and 3 planes.  The SPAD is a bit of an overperformer itself, but most of my Tier 2 and 3 are just a light snack for the P.V.3.  I'm not really complaining about the basic plane, but with Rudolph flying and people having it up to Specialized already, and the battle queues full of multiple P.V.3, it's a bit much.  Sometime there's 3 of them per team. At least Rudolph should lose his special skills outside of December.

try a Japanese bi plane or the tier 3 Russian plane those things are good at turning but if you get the jump on them you will do fine.but yeah specialist planes even in higher tiers are a pain to fight but it happens anyway good luck.

I don't meta, so I'm not going to load up something just to counter the Plague of P.V.3 - and of course I have my own P.V.3 as well.  The holiday plane is just hogging low Tier queues and battles even after the holidays have passed.  I like to enjoy using all my little barnstormer planes - I-7, SPAD, Metalico, etc

There is a cure.  I call it "Death from Above."

 

The FW57 will make very short work of a PV3 outside of it's gun range.  You fly by, and if you didn't knock it down in the initial pass, your rear gun will finish it off.

 

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Only thing that may change is if the PV3 player has the squirrel ice sculpture which gives them a maneuvering bonus and you don't have it, they will lose that bonus after the event.

the reindeer makes a noticeable difference, and that's coming from someone who never notices anything 

 

i always thought that special skill pilots like German Charlotte were a bit ptw-ish, but i do love her attributes so much

 

maybe a little bit too much

I'm looking at my T2 Bulldog and how much I love to use it to rip up the PV 3.. I dunno to each their own and I'll admit the PV 3 is just.. nice.. but it's a reward plane and is -supposed- to be nice. It's quite beatable however and it's completely useless for missions/etc.meaning it's already kinda nerfed. Good for dailies I suppose but even then it's got a limited vocabulary as it were.
Opinions are like certain body parts. Everyone has them and most of the time they stink.
