I took advantage of the easy kills to be had and spammed the crap out of my Mosquito 26 to get the 108 or so kills I needed towards specialization.  Now, I just need some caps.  Got the kills for my tech tree Mossie as well, and unlocked the Hornet.  I unlocked the Me-410.

missed reading this thread...   gj, CR!

 

nothing noteworthy yesterday, got shelled in everything i flew, but liked the non-heavy USA heavy F5F, that comes with free ultimate camos for every map 

 

and really enjoyed the new Beau V!    after ignoring it for a long time as a gimmick, grabbed it on sale and flew the pants off it for 4-5 battles yesterday 

 

always appreciate a fun heavy, even with a gimmicky "not-a-tailgun"...  loved watching that tg frivolously waste a truckload of bullets     some even hit what i needed to kill

 

don't remember any battle info     i never learn from my mistakes because i promptly, mercifully forget them

Surprised to find bomber escort is still running after server reset.  Once I figured out that Victory/Defeat doesn't really matter in the event mode I was able to make better use of it to farm bots.  I prefer a more structured game mode, but at least I was able to concentrate on completing the 80 kill mission and acquire some new planes. 

 

Plane      points  credits

Fw 252    10.5k  70.5k    Server went bonkers about halfway through the battle.

Fw 252    19.5k  174k     Realizing that Victory/Defeat doesn't really matter, I switch to a plane that is better at farming bots.

 

Yak 30     19.5k   104k   First battle in my new Yak 30, and pilot is 100% after.

Yak 30      23k     184k

 

P 51H     26.5k    133.5k  Constantly getting shot down by turnies.  Research top engine.

 

Bf 109G  25.8k   152.5k  Finish researching the 109G

 

Yak 30    31.5k    207k   Back to the most productive plane

Yak 30    32.5k    203k   Finish 80 kill mission, win Type 224 in the crate

 

J7W1     27.5k     160k

 

Bf 109Z   27k      139.5k

 

Ta 152    11.5k    35k   Still need to research the top guns, but don't quite get there tonight

Ta 152     17k      55k  Purchase La 9

I unlocked the ki-102 today.  I lost every game I flew in it except the last one.  It was just bad luck.  I think I might fly the Ki-88 a bunch and see if I can't specialize it.  I dislike the plane and that's about the only way it will get the kills it needs for specialization.  Maybe I'll fly the P36C too. 

 

EDIT: Finished the 140ish kills I needed for the Ki-88.

Woman took a multi hour nap in the afternoon.  

 

La 9  24k   113k    First flight in this plane.  Won XP 58 in the special crate.

La 9  7.5k  lost 10000 credits due to all the sealclubber planes.  pilot to 100%

La 9 17.5k  80k  

La 9  20.5k  106k    Less players == better profits for everyone

 

Me 1099 B2   15k   70k   Scored OK, but it sure didn't pay off much in credits.  

 

That's all the time I have to fly "phase 1"

Flying after midnight in the less crowded skies of the regular game.  I needed the Flying Paladin for the F5F cycle.

 

Plane        result    points    credits

Type 224  Victory   10.5k     73k      I won this in an event crate today.  It's OKish, but I enjoy the oddball planes so that's just fine. 

 

Tornado   Defeat    9.5k       21k      Tornado is a strong plane, but it has no answer for a Specfire.  :/

Tornado   Victory    7.5k       26k      Flying Paladin is not going to happen with this plane tonight.

 

Ki 61       Victory     10k       36.5k    Sick of the plague of spits, I loaded up one of my dirtiest planes.  The only more OP planes in my hangar are 109E and MiG 3.  No Paladin tho.

 

A6M5      Victory    12.5k     57k       bots.  got the pilot to 100%  No Paladin.

 

La 9        Defeat     14k       65k      

La 9        Defeat   10.5k      37k      Another freakin Specfire sealclubber.  It was obscene how hard I was getting curbstomped by that plane.

La 9        Victory     5k         40k     Guarded the mining plant, but there wasn't much to do there.  Guns overheat too fast to get the Holy Paladin badge anyhow.

 

Ki 43 Ic   Victory    17k    $mucho$      This battle was a bad matchup, but everything flew in front of me and I finally got the Flying Paladin!

It was missile base, garrison, missile base in this case, on the very small egypt map.  I thought it was going to be difficult because missile bases don't have ADA fighters, but there were plenty of team reds to shoot.  If an XF4F3 insists on turnfighting you you're golden, kek

I neglected my no-paper-plane policy and went on and bought myself the Me P.1092.

OMG, what a plane.
Those cannons, man what a rate of fire (if your used to english or russian cannons). Almost feels like a mini-vulcan in terms of firepower.
Excellent altitude handling, more than decent maneuverability, the plane picks up speed very fast.
Only downside, the looks of this plane (definitely the upgraded airframe) are awful in my opinion.

I completed two more stages of the F5F missions after server reset in the satisfying (when I remember to pulse my guns) La 9.  I made it a "turn build" and it's working well.

 

Plane Result points credits    insert my post midnight babble here

La 9  Defeat   10k     13k    Captured 4 sectors on a 4 cap map and still lost in a landslide.  

La 9  Defeat     8k     40k     Just the usual loss to a Specfire.  Nothing to see here, move along, etc, etc

La 9  Defeat   17k     86k     ACE!  Same matchup (player/plane) as first battle.  Too slow to cap the central airfield and lost by a landslide again. 

La 9  Victory 10.5k   79.5k    Took the first 3 caps in sync with my allied player who was also in a rocket butt plane Yak 3RD, so we got a big early lead.

The P.1092 is a monster.  And so is the P.1101.

Flying in the middle of the night again.  I wanted to fly some old favorites, rather than my current grinds.

 

Ki-8       Defeat      5.5k    10k     Bottom Tier punching bag

Ki-8       Defeat       5k      13k     Bottom Tier punching bag

Ki-8       Victory      15k    44.5k   Top Tier abusing bots

 

BSh-1   Victory     8.5k    58.5k   Mining Plant FTW

 

LBSh    Victory     7.5k    70.5k    2 missile base cap, popping tents

 

XP-36F Victory     9.5k    74k     Got all the speed mods, but I was never challenged so I just shredded things at will with the guns.  Even bombers melt fast.

I flew my P-36C some today to work towards specialization.  God this thing is trash.  It's an XF4F-3 that's worse in nearly every way.

 

EDIT: Spammed it some more to grind it out.  There were a few specialized P-40's and P-36s out that were less than pleased to see a non specialized P-36C use some veteran turn fighter moves to  get inside them and make the kill.  Of course the ultimate equipment I had on /regardless/ of not being specialized and my 10 point P-51H pilot helped...

Flew some in the afternoon, including at the very beginning of the event phase.  The battles in this event are over really quickly, so the rewards are no larger than normal Conquest battles.

 

Plane             Result   Points    Credits     Babble

BSh-2            Victory    2.5k        18k      Air Supremacy early, yawn

 

Fi 98              Victory    11k         19.5k    Early lead, and most of the battle playing defense

 

Me P.1102B   Victory    6k             28k     Start of the event phase.  These battles go so quickly

 

Yak 30           Victory   17k           121k    wee, I got 100 gold.  The event was a real snoozer, otherwise

 

P 51H            Victory   5.5k           34k    

 

J7W1             Defeat   6k               1k     Mostly chasing heavies, which is not profitable, but nothing else came to my corner of the map. 

J7W1             Defeat   7k              35k    I was surrounded by enemies, shooting things down, but I don't know what my bots were doing because every time I looked at the map red far outnumbered blue

 

 

I happened to glance at my top 10 planes by hours flown, although that's biased towards higher Tier planes since low Tier battles can be much shorter.

Afternoon flying.  Back to the usual grind.

 

I-211     Victory    5.5k    29k     The enemy team was short a player and I was flying an I-211....so it was an even matchup.  

 

La 9      Victory   11.5k   76k     Another absent enemy player, so it was a turkey shoot.  

 

P-51H  Defeat     3.5k   lost 25000 credits.  Spec Attacker on the other side assassinated me a couple times so I couldn't do anything.

P-51H  Defeat     6.5k    24.5k   Spitfire player chased me out of the battle

P-51H  Defeat      6k     zero      Specfire, so it was an automatic loss again

P-51H  Defeat   14.5k  64.5k    Kozhedub.  I finally got smart and just camped one cap to earn some credits and XP, conceding Defeat from the start.  Worth it.
