Specialist #5 is XP-44 Rocket

 

 

I forgot to post #6, which is Me 209 V4

Specialist #7 is Venom, which was one of my first premium planes

 

(see signature line)

To your credit, that is a fairly wide distribution of different playstyles right there. :great:

I would get whiplash switching between a Venom and a Me209v4.

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is much like my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ... 
And yet it doesn't stop me from speculation.

Specialist Planes I have from : USA, UK, Germany, USSR, Europe
Light Fighters:  XP-31, Model 81A-1, P-40, P-51A, P-39N-1, XF15C, DH.100 F1, Fw 56, He 112, Bf 109 B / E / E-3, Me209v4, Me209 A, I-17
Multi-Roles: F11C-2, F4F, P-47B, Fw 190 A-1 / A-5 / D, I- 5 / 15 / 16(e)(l)

Heavy Fighters: P-38 F/J,  XP-58, Tu-1, Bf 110 C-6, SE 100, Me 410, Do 335 A-1, Me 262

Attack Aircraft: Hs 123, Ha 137, Hs 129 A, Ju 87 G, Me 265, Me 1099 B-2
Bombers: Do 17 Z, He 111 H2, Pe-2, Do 217 M

I like to try everything and collect them all, so change lines all the time and I do pretty much everything except heavies.  I think the only heavy fighter I have right now is VB 10.

i deleted my 190s, but kept the Dora, because i promised myself that i will learn to fly it better somehow someday

 

i've got the best 190 pilot in the world on speed dial, but nope... it's just out of my reach, talentwise

 

 

 

Having watched him play it gives me confidence that I can play it.  I have carried with it before, but it was when I wasn't downtiered, which happens A LOT at T7.  I also kept the Ta-152, and the BV P.212 T9 Batplane, because R4M and ridiculous roll rate.

Not necessarily. some still folks prefer the other options.
For example: the P-38



 

 

The P-38F is unholy OP@T5.  Even with the big gun, it can just CRUSH the opposition.  Specialized, it feels like it could be a T6+ plane.  B-17s just melt under those guns.  It runs so hard that I get overconfident and try to take on multiple red humans at low level.  LOL, just don't.  Had a battle the other day with a specialized Ki-102 (my P-38F is not yet specialized) and got the better of the battle.  He and I were equal in mutual kills - he got me first because I played him dumb, then I got him because he played me dumb.  But I would call it an even fight - me in an unspecialized P-38F at T5, and him in a specialized Ki-102 at T6.  THAT'S how OP the P-38 is.

So far mine are the SE-100, IL-2 with rear gunner, and the Tomahawk IIb. I have unlocked, but not bought, the specialist status for the Ju-87G, because I haven't decided yet whether I am going to keep it or not.

 

I am currently working on specializing the P-40 M-105, Bf-110 C-6, Me-410, and B-17G right now.


Edited by legoboy0401, 11 May 2019 - 10:20 PM.

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.

I'm less than 30 kills away from Specializing Tomahawk IIb, which is where I was with the Ki-88 at the beginning of last night.

Next in to the Specialist Zone is Wirraway.  This Specialization took a long time because the Specialist conditions are destroying ground targets, and since Wirraway has only 4 tiny bombs I primarily fly it as a dogfighter and GA hunter.

Just noticed that I have 72 Specialist badges (Honorary ranks).

But when I select specialist in the hangar filter, it says 76 ?!

Will have a better look this evening, maybe it counts planes that meet the specialist conditions but you haven't purchased yet ? I've got some high tier planes that cost 950.000 to be specced, so I'm saving.

I got my first specialist tonight, my F2A-1.  It looked like it only unlocked one slot, so I am not certain for this aircraft that it's worth putting the wings on and drawing more attention to myself.

Picked up my second specialist today, the BF109B.  A buddy started playing yesterday and I needed something to play with his P36, and I didn't have many T4's sitting around.

Nice work, crzyhawk! Tell your buddy if he wants any tips/tricks, there are a lot of people here on the forums who would be happy to help out! Also, on the official Discord channel I'll be happy to get in voice comms and talk about anything specific and/or flight up with him!

Thanks!  He's up to the P40 now, he wants that P38 something fierce, he decided on heavy fighters because they're fast.  I'd planned to play a premium with him to farm some cash while he was leveling up, but the my T4 selection leaves a bit to be desired (read I am not very good with them).  I have the 109B which I had only kept because I won a nice spotted camo for it from some mission, so I decided to play that (because I was getting my tail handed to me in my XF4F-3 which I dearly want to love...but don't).  That seemed to go much better lol

iconic usa early war plane, but just like my first college girlfriend, it'll always be slightly out of your league and subtly flaunt that fact in your face       repeatedly 

 

we'll be those friends that tell you to drop her before she ruins your self-confidence, but i hope that it's not too late

 

in 20 years, you'll turn the corner in some air museum and run into her...  in a dusty dark corner, while all the spotlights and attention are on a gleaming p-51D

 

you can still feel the attraction, but you've experienced some things, you've gone a different direction, you see the desperate 'fly me' look and it doesn't move you anymore 

 

because you've flown german 109s now
