Ju-87G(eh, not too bad, but I can do better. A win.)

 

 

Ju-87G(well, so much for better. This sucked. Kept getting hunted by an irritating specialist BSh-2 who was so attentive I couldn't even sneak up on him to turn the tables on him)

 

 

Tomahawk IIb(bottom tier and low scoring, a loss. I REALLY need to enhance my Gunsight on this thing and maybe get Marksman I. The accuracy is FAR worse than I remember it being, perhaps because its the only P-40 I don't have Marksman I on. I am going to need to fix both of these issues, and soon, before I can play this plane again)

 

 

SE-100(Business as usual for this plane. Top of the team, a win. This thing is CRAZY good)

 

 

Bf-109 E(a short and unremarkable bottom-tier loss. Only consolation was getting to take out a full health enemy XP-55 Ascender through ramming and finishing him off with my guns while he wallowed around after losing his engine to the ram)

 

 

P-38F(Encountered Captain_Rownd for the first time, in his Hs 129 B. My team, as usual, was trash and had their butts handed to them, a loss)

 

 

A6M1(A win, top of the team(admittedly I was top tier), but a shoutout to a good player on my team, AlphaBeard in his specialist Hurricane Ia, who very nearly outscored me)

 

 

B-32(sigh. Combine two enemy specialist B-32s, a headhunting bot Ki-94-I, and a pretty darn bad green team, and what do you get? A pretty meh loss, that's what)

 

 

Bf-110 C-6(Another loss. At least I got the satisfaction of getting to take out another, enemy derpgun plane(a LaGG-3 series 34) with this one.)

 

 

 

A pretty average to subpar night, if I'm honest. I think TankNoob1960 is right in his assessment that this event sucks, or at least that this stage definitely does.

An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

A brief evening session - I flew two of the hottest machine-gunning hot-rods in my hangar

 

Tomahawk IIb - finished off Specialist qualification.  First battle our 2 P-40 team beat a 2 Spitfire team. :medal:

 

He 100 D-1 - Conqueror, Akamatsu, McCampbell battle.  I just love flying this screamer - it's been too long.  :playing:

  After a rough week I think I was on the winning side of 12 of 15 today.  It swings like a pendulum.

For this session, I was just kinda messing around, getting assorted grinds worked on today, not much was really a huge priority:

 

 

(flight with Shrike Gaming)

 

 

 

Ju-288A(The(long, at least for me) Ju-288C grind doesn't grind itself, you know)

 

 

 

A6M1(all hail overheating guns! Sadly, not a win though, even though it was a good match)

 

 

 

Hurricane II(unlocked the 20 mms at last. Haven't purchased them yet though as I am diverting most of my credits right now into saving up for the Mosquito, and these guns are expensive)

 

 

 

P-38F(Unlocked and bought the 37 mm, and had enough XP left over to unlock the rockets too, and got this plane elite. McGuire medal, Grade I Heavy Fighter.  A win.)

 

 

 

Me-410

 

 

 

(Solo)

 

 

 

Me-410

 

 

 

Me-410

 

 

 

He-111-H-2(Doolittle attempt No. 5. Did better than most of the previous attempts, but still fell well short)

 

 

 

A6M1(Encountered losttwo for the first time on the enemy team in his specialist Blenheim F. I played a really good game, but he still got me twice. A loss)

 

 

 

Bf-110 C-6(a very mediocre match. Still, I now only need 3 more participations in capturing sectors to unlock specialist for this aircraft.)

 

 

 

 

Overall, a good session. The defeats were... ... there, but my Heavy Fighters carried the day(all wins in them today), so I did at least get their 100 gold.

1 victory 5 defeats for the afternoon

 

Tempest - loss, Flying Raider and finished a 10 token ground target mission I've been working on with the Tempest since November  (for a long time it was my only Tier 8)

 

I-250 - an unusually difficult 5 battles to finally get a win and 1 battle worth of XP I needed to research the MiG-9.  Now I just need 3 million(!) credits to buy it....

 

Later on:

 

Yak-15 - first battle with the top guns, and it still takes forever to kill anything except an ADA fighter

 

Ki-84 - my only really successful plane of the day.  about 1000 XP from the 30mm top guns and Marksman 1 skill

Fw 190 D - These Fw 190 grinds are the worst.  This plane is seriously terrible and useless for the first few battles. 3-4 kills is a really good game.

I've been feeling the same way about my B-32's grind. Without a high-skill-point crew and a specialist plane, anything with more firepower than a same-tier light fighter chews you up easily, or loses but leaves you on VERY low health.

 

7-8 ground target kills is a VERY good game.

 

 

On another note, my amazing gaming PC is in the shop. Apparently the power source went out, despite being only about 2 weeks old. I should have it back by Saturday, but for the rest of the week, any playing I do is going to have to be on the borrowed setup again.

I have found the 190s, especially the Dora, to be a joy.  You have to fly them like a heavy fighter.  They just destroy GAA.  They crush HFs.  They roll over unarmored ground targets, and blast ADA.  If you try to turnfight with them, you will get killed.  Don't turnfight.

 

I stopped at T9, and just specialized that Batplane today.  I am looking forward to killing some Yak-19s. :)

Late night flying, on the borrowed setup:

 

Ju-288A(obligatory match for the Ju-288C grind, a fairly meh loss. This setup has only degenerated since the last time that I used it. It made this match a real mess, and difficult to do much of anything. I got a rear gun kill, at least, though it's not like that means much to me as I won't be keeping this plane anyways)

 

A6M1(More grinding for the Ki-45. Still 13,000 XP to go. I tried to get the settings right to make it more tolerable, but to no avail. Even so this was a decent match, but in a few engagements the poorness of this setup was painfully obvious)

 

 

I think I'm done using this borrowed setup, even though my own, much better one won't be back in business and working order until Friday or Saturday.

it's interesting to read about your progression up different lines      you've come a long way since you started this thread     congrats!

 

190s, ugh      i enjoyed the D, but i never fly it, because it's really not a good fit for me      too much math

 

the Ta was my goal, but i realized that i would double-suck in it, too       i'm just a turny noob, it's outta my league

 

it'll take me to a fancy party and i'll end up spilling a drink on someone important

Ohhhhh...completely forgot that I researched that Ki-45

 

Oh how nice - I also see that Ju 87 G unlocked the 37mm for the Hs 129 B, saving me 6500 XP towards the Ju 88 P!

Fw 190 A-1: Lose, Lose, Lose, Win

 

Bf 110 B: Win

 

Ju 88 A: Lose

 

XP-77: Win!

 

I only had to suffer through 3 losses in the Focke Wulf before my win (during which i disconnected, figures), usually I have to experience 6 or more losses. I hate the thing and will rush to unlock the Bf 109 and then sell it.

The A5 and the Dora are great planes.  But they require a very specific playstyle.
