Another 2 hours of boosters flying premiums, but unfortunately they were the terrible USSR variety.  I had hoped to start on the good german premiums, but continual losing kept me in the same junk planes for the whole 2 hours

 

Plane            Result  Points  Profit

P-40 M-105  Defeat  9190  84500

P-40 M-105  Defeat  5010  70500

P-40 M-105  Defeat  4690  72000

P-40 M-105  Defeat  4350  79500

P-40 M-105  Defeat  8885  125000

P-40 M-105  Defeat  8000  113500  7 straight defeats going back to yesterday

P-40 M-105  Victory  9830  167200

IL-2 (mod)    Defeat  5855  81500

IL-2 (mod)    Victory  8910  147000

Yak-3T          Defeat  6710  114000  The T stands for "turd".  Losing is the norm for this plane. 

Yak-3T          Defeat  5760  104000  All bots.  My bots fail to take any of the outer caps while I camp the airfield.

Yak-3T          Defeat  9875  171000  All bots.  Superior enemy fighters hold the mining plant for the entire battle.

Yak-3T          Defeat  5970  100000  merciful server reset puts and end to my pain and suffering

 

After server reset I flew a 1 hour credit booster and moved on to german premiums.  The He 111 was unfortunately the first, but then I got to fly some of my favorite GA

 

Plane            Result  Points  Profit

He 111 H-2  Defeat  4880  68000    shot down by heavies at both caps

He 111 H-2  Defeat  5025  75367    chased by numerous fighters

He 111 H-2  Victory  5755  101442  hey, a mining plant to bomb

Hs 129 A     Victory  7350  114667  Finally, a plane with guts

Ha 137 V1   Defeat  13215  115400  Top Tier on a small map, LOL

Ha 137 V1   Victory  8295  97885  pwning everything, but lots of flying between distant caps

 

I finally had enough credits to purchase both Tornado and Hunter, completing the UK multirole collection.  I was pleased to see I had a reward camo waiting for the Tornado.

Now that the UK multirole event is done, and girlfriend is using up the home internet bandwidth again, I'm back to my casual midnight flights for weekly crate progress

 

IL-20 - I helped cap all 4 caps, but all of them flipped right after I arrived so I only got credit for 2 sectors captured.  Long flights around battlefield make for a terrible score.  :sceptic:

 

I-250 - It's been too long since I last flew this favorite.  Kozhedub and I got credit for all 4 caps this time.  Still need 100 kills to qualify for Spec.  :playing:

 

Hs 129 A - Working a 10 token ground target mission in another favorite plane.  Top Tier LOL.  PWNed the enemy airfield with a bomb/gun blitz and lots of dogfighting.  :izmena:

 

He 111 H-2 - Finished off the ground target mission in the Heinkel carpet bomber.  I'm not a fan, but theoretically it's a good choice for this purpose.  Heavies were busy dogfighting so I got to bomb a LOT more than usual, but there were other players in bombers and GA so the targets were often picked over and worth less points by the time my bombs landed.  :facepalm:

IL-1  Couldn't make it help much on the map for the battle.  Also, was low tier.  Also, I am bad with multi-roles. 

 

1101, ooooh just 1101. MY BABY.

 

AR-65 for a daily or two. 27 kills once, 25 kills just after  that. Low tiers dailies DONE.

I may try to fly my IL-1 later in the week.  I think I got it from the loot crates they sold in the spring, but every time I look at the price of equipping it to fly I decide I need to save those credits for the grind.

 

I got curious about the IL-20 grind today since it feels like it's been forever.  I'm 61 battles (7 hours 43 min) in and still have 100,000 XP until I can research the IL-40.  I may have it qualified for Specialist before I can research the IL-40.

Daily IL-20.  A grind almost as monumental as the Fw 190 grind, but this one is actually fun.

 

edit: daily IL-20 battle got me a Lang today  :medal:

Put a couple~five games into the HG II, unlocked the HG III.

 

went up the Period 2 Heavy lines for a daily, rough times with P-38 Tier V & SE 100, great times in Bea V, pretty decent times in the 109 Z.  Seemed to be downtier all day.

 

Tomorrow another run at heavies in Periods 1 and 2.

Took the HG III out for a test drive, all-bot game.

 

15 kills, 13 of them Bomber/GAA, Hero, Legend, McGuire and squeaked out a narrow win.  This is my 5th Tier X plane.

IL-20 - Lost the first three, including a couple Thunders, Hero of the Skies and a Winged Legend.  Won the fourth as backup to a Spec'd IL-20.  

 

LBSh - First time I've ever flown this.  Feasted on the reds. Similar to the BSh-1, but with less bombs.  (can't remember if that's offset by reload speed)

 

IL-1 - First time I've ever flown this.  Feasted on the reds.  Ooof, the optimum altitude ceiling is so low - needs all the engine buffs.

Most of my day was spent in Period 1 heavies and GAA, due to Daily missions.  Did have a really fun Wirraway game, but I forget the exact numbers  (9 air, 15 ground?  something like that.)   German GAA and HF, a couple of games in a Rooskie give-away GAA, a couple of tough games in the Wilk, partially due to my own muppetry.  (don't ignore heavy ADFs just because you have a really big bomb that you want to drop!!!) (I did get a Bombardier award in a later game though, popped it just in front of a GAA as I flew over the top!  First ever deliberate Bombardier, rest have been happy accidents!)  :teethhappy:

 

The best game of the day, however, was the very first.  ACE! in the XP-77.   5 base winter map, took out two ADFs to flip a Garrison, then headed for the middle base.  And everything just went awesome.  ("the clouds parted, and the sun shown down upon my tail!")  Feasting on bots it may have been, but it was still far and away the best game that I've had in that little bird.  Hero, Legend and Kozhedub.

my first T10 heavy       couldn't make it work, even after the thoroughly enjoyable HGll      mothballed it long ago      never missed it once

@trikke

 

my first Tier X was the XF-90.

 

h8ted it!

 

in other words, I feel your pain.  I have gotten a bit better in that stiff lawn dart of a plane, but still, it was a rough introduction to top tier gameplay.

the xf-90 fit like a glove from the first flight           took a while until i got some production, but it's my first pick at T10 every time now        

 

when i fly in T10, that is        T10's not a tier for someone like me

Daily IL-20 wreckage

 

Fw 252 - 6 kills feels like a great game in this plane, LOL.  It has the character of an altitude fighter, which is what I prefer, but getting the guns to hit is difficult and anything that survives and gets on my tail has won the engagement.

Speced the XP-77, first game was 15 kills, just ripping it up.  Not enough materials to Ultimate the gear, first trip out at Spec ruined by TWO humans bailing.  (you can guess who they were. . . .)  Switched to Period 3 for Dailies,  FG2 took three games to get a win, a couple decent games but losses in the Chain Lightning, solid win in the Pancake, a trio of decent games lost in the Scwalbe, solid win in the HG II, two decent games getting stomped by allbots in the HGIII.  Going 1 for 8 made for a VERY frustrating afternoon, especially because I wasn't having bad games.

alright, let's try this...   it's only been an hour or so, you'd think i could remember a couple of them

 

started T4 with excellent pilot SFMY, i flew the 110b and oh crap i don't remember what SF flew       probably a win, who knows      wait, i think it was 800-0!     MM goosed those guys

 

then T5     i flew the 210 and he flew...  oh hell i should take notes        maybe a squeaker?        i have no idea

 

T6, and i remember it vividly!       me in the problematic Mosquito and SFMY in the A-5 and we see Sky Wolf and comealong over there      but comealong didn't load in until mid-battle, so a big win!

 

T7 and there they are again, dammit        along with MWoods       we got shelled       SF did fine, but i got killed everywhere i went, made bad decisions everywhere i went

 

stepped back to T6, ended on a high note in twin 102s, because 102s are like comfort food         i don't remember anyone in red, but we were down the whole battle, until the last minute!

Weekly crate progress battles: IL-20 and Bf 109 F  - trying to get XP on the 109F so I can get the 109Z on discount, though I can't fly a lot this weekend so I'll have to free-xp some of it

Got a couple of things wrong there :P

 

First off, we started out with tier 5 with the P-38F/Me210 which was the 800-0 stomp we enjoyed.

 

After that was the match in the A-5/Mosquito against Skywolf and Koot (not comealong) in the B-17G/Bf109E which was a bit of a nailbiter on account of the map even if the scores weren't that close in the end.

 

Then we went and basically flattened an enemy team in a double Ki-102s to another rapid 800-0 win

 

We lost the next match again to SkyWolf and Koot in an RB-17/Ki-93 flight in our double Tu-1 flight. We made a tactical error - I tried to push and you went to defend the mining plant instead of the missile base which lost us the game

 

We then stayed at 7 and went Tu-1/VB10 and this one was a close one thanks to a homicidal killer bot in a Yak-9U which killed you three times.

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
