After days and weeks of missing each other, CorvusCorvax and I FINALLY managed to get a couple of games in together.  We had a pair of games in the Tier IX batplanes, along with Toshiaki_Virgin in a Tier X, vs allbots.  :amazed:  (I had 4 or  5 games yesterday where it was 2 or 3 humans vs allbots, was very strange MM.)

 

The REAL fun was the third game, in the P.1092.  We got the Pacific map with 2 CCs and 2 forward airfields, and went absolutely nuts.  Constant furballs, Corvus somehow tracked down a human in an HGII, I cleared numerous light ADFs off his tail, and when it was all said and done, we'd come out of it with Lord of the Skies.  I had to check if that was a totally new award for me, turned out I had 3 previously, but I have no idea how long ago.  Brother, that was FUN!  :izmena:

It's always a pleasure to fly with you.

Working the Thud event to get the discount on the F-84F.


F-84B.  Lots of flights with Clan mates and a couple of boosters popped to get the aircraft XP.  When flighted, more winning that losing.  When solo, more losing than winning.  [sadface]
 

F-84F.  Yay!  Like the F-84B, but moAr.  Again, flighted with a mate = winning, flying solo is a crap-shoot.

 

P-51H.  Sigh.  I do not like this plane.  I like the P-51A, and the P-51D.  This plane makes me want to rage-quit.  I have had this feeling before with other planes, then came to love them later, but I seriously doubt that I will love this plane later.  I have several other T8 LFs that I would rather play.  Frankly, it's the guns.  The guns need to be a little bit more.  But they aren't, so into mothballs you go.  I got enough XP to get the F6U, and that plane is gonna be hella fun when I get it figured out.  Those quad 20s just MELT other planes.  P-51H, you're close to specialization.  Odin help me if I ever try to finish you off.  Having to put up with you twice for T9 LFs was a bigger chore than the I-210, I-250 and Yak-9U, combined.

 

FJ-1.  Still workin' on that F-86.  The FJ-1 is pretty nimble, and the guns are pretty good - I need to practice a little more with the bomber interception thing.  This plane does that VERY well, if you use the tricks.  I have figured out the secret sauce to this plane, I think.  I have more work to do, but I am beginning to see the charms, and how specialization will make this plane a potential equal to the P.1092.  The F6U is a different beast, for sure.

 

F6U.  First flight was good, but not awesome.  I made several mistakes which cost the battle, but luckily, it was only me.  I only realized VERY late that it was NOT an all-bot match, which would have changed my approach A LOT, but hey, that's the way life is sometimes.  Good plane, crap pilot.  :)

 

F-94D.  I'm filled with "meh" here.  The Vulcan is cool, but there are a lot of T9 planes I'd rather fly.  So far, my favorite plane of this line is the F4U-1, sorry to say.  I'm not giving up on it, but I'm also not itching to fly it in preference to my other T9 grinds going on.

 

Flighted with a clan mate at T6, while he worked on token grinds.  Flew the Tornado with Miss Elliot.  Woooo, Millie - you're a HUGE asset to this plane.

Finally finished the 10 token USSR/UK mission. Got stuck on P3 and I only have 5. RB17/IL20 did consistently nice,IL40 did fantastic but was always on the losing side. Mig 9 was feast or famine, either fantastic games or would have been better off crashing it from the start. Tempest is starting to make me go nuts. Nice bombs but really hard to tangle with jets. I kinda feel outclassed by everything when flying it.

Working on getting everything to t7/t8 before going any further (Couple of exceptions in there, but they sorta just happened). Today was RU/German day. Absolutely could not buy a win in the La7 or Tu2. Decent scores just less than stellar teams. Flogged the Fw190d and unlocked the Ta152. Running stock a couple games it seems ok for a prop plane contending with jets. 20mm's feel like nerf guns, hitting stuff, just not doing much damage.Maybe the 30's will be better once researched out. Pulled the 109g out of storage and ran a few games as well. Not great games, but not bad either. They got better as I got re used to the 30mm hub cannon.

The Ta 152 is ALL about the 30mike derps.  Deleting light ADFs from 1.3 klicks, chunking bombers from outside of turret range, etc.  Just single tap the guns, and watch the fun begin.

Whelp, it's all trikke's fault. . . . .

 

I purchased the BV P.215.02 yesterday.

 

Its a very interesting looking plane, that's for sure!  Love those German 20mikes, had them dialed in right off the bat.  (pun not intended. . . .)  Had some speed issues, with lower tier bombers running away from me.  Will certainly take some time to fully grok the handling, it certainly is NOT a turny plane.  Flew it enough to get the AtA rockets, and was really impressed at the visuals of them in the cowling. Looking forward to trying them out.

Well, I'm not going to.  Damn Coyote talked me into the FW-252, which is just pain.  I mean, it can be fun, but often isn't.

No damn way I'm going to spend 6.5 million silver on the top Batplane.

Nope.

 

NOPE.

i'm having a ball      after i specced it and threw on a calibrated gold sight, even i could hit stuff reliably        i know      shocking 

 

Focke-Wulf Fw 252      12 battles     91.67%      3,541 E/B     6,431   D/B         the E/B is 100 points higher than my xf-90, ffs

 

just today, D mentioned that he was going to spend some time flying it      even though he teased me at first, he watched me do fairly well in it

 

so keep flying it, brother     just don't turnfight in it       it's a MR without any bombs or rockets       my favorite kind of MR

 

folks kind of ignore me, really     maybe because it's me flying it      they would not ignore D flying it, or you, so...

I could never hit anything with those guns, even with Marksman 2, and normally I enjoy DERPs

It was really much better before the nerfs.

I only ran MM I on it, (my German pilot from the FW-190 had EG I + II, and I didn't change it) and was cleaning up the T8 skies with it.  Even pestering RB-17s to death...

The nerf took what was a seriously OP plane and made it stubbornly ordinary.  I can't do much at all with it now.

I was flying the heavies at Tier VIII in concert with a Clan Brother, who was working on Spec for the Ju 288C.  Was having a doozy of a game in the Do 335, flipping caps with bomb runs, pegging planes off from a klick away, etc.  Game ended, and I noticed something new in the awards section.

 

GABRESKI!!!!!!!

 

My FIRST EVER!!!!

 

ended up with 13 air, 8 ground, almost 18K points, 700 capture points (!!!) Legend, Mc/Mc, and as a Flight we also got both gold and silver puppers.  (was even a match with several humans in red!)

 

I was chuffed, to put it mildly.  Every so often, the clouds part, and the Sun shines down on my tail empennage!

  In my first Holiday Ops outing I flew the Potez, Stuka, then 4 straight in the Me P.1102 B.  Not gonna bother posting numbers since it wasn't memorable.  The tryhards were out in their Spec'd meme-planes every battle and I was getting head-hunted half the time so it was not very productive.  6 battles and I only got 3 pieces of candy.  Looking at the event track I already have the premium planes before the PogoPlane, so I'm not very motivated to grind the candy much.  600 pieces is just ridiculous.

  I did my Holiday Ops crate purchase.  I got 50 crates because I'm not buying any Tanks crates this year.  Results: 100 days premium (runs out in 150 days now), 20k gold, and 9 premium planes.  The 3 new planes for me were XP-54, Spitfire Vb and Mustang I.  I already had the Mustang Ia so I never realized there's also a british Mustang I.   

 

Flew a few battles tonight, on the weak team every time.  Got a couple more candy bits, but I already have the premium planes in the candy rewards path so I'm not trying for that.

 

Plane             Result  Points  Caps  Kills  Ground Targets   Notes

Me P.1102 B  Victory 13145      3        0      16   111128       Somehow the spec'd enemy EF 131 lost.  Trying to finish a 10 token ground target Daily.

Ju 87 G         Defeat    5940      1        0        7    22238       Spec'd enemy fighters swept us.  Trying to get 6000 points to finish a Daily.  :/  

Me 265          Defeat    5510      2        0        6    45973       One team member did not load.  

Me 265          Defeat  11815      2        0       16   65887        Winnable, but the P-82B on my team was playing GA instead of killing the bombers.

Flew a few before bed.  I'm up to 11 candy bits.  Not making much progress on my 10 token mission since it only counts wins

Me P.1102B  Defeat   9045       4        0          12    61215
