Just curious, has anyone received their gold yet?  I am not complaining, I know sometimes it takes a few days for the credits to flow through.  Just curious.  

 

Thanks for any replies.  

 

Oh yeah, I flew my P-38J like a complete doofus.  At least I got it specialized now.  Not that I will be playing it anytime soon.  I was just baaaaad.  Then again, I was trying to do things I should not have done.  Ah well, die and learn, I guess.  

 

GG to everyone who was above me in the standings (i.e. everyone).  


As of this edit, No prizes here..



 

You can spec a p-38 for turning. Many do.
But if you are it should only for turning against other heavies. (like another p-38) and some few Multi-Roles that rely more on speed than agility that you catch alone. 
This doesn't mean you should get in a horizontal turn-fight with anything that has fewer engines than you do.
It is a difficult habit to break. (I should know)
But as necessary for your survival as it is for a spitfire to NOT chase a target above its altitude band..

And for this admittedly 'really useful' buff; it makes your already fragile engines even more so.
And its hard to get away when your engines are not working ...

Its one of the few planes I would use engine armor for.

But fragile engines wont be a problem because you're so good at Boom&Zoom that they wont know you're there.
  Until it is too late for them.

Thank you for participating once again, pilots! And many-many thanks for your kind words, I really appreciate them! Salvage party had to retreat but your prizes are safe. Rewards should arrive in a matter of hours.

[facepalm]

 

I also miscounted the number of battles.  Sigh.

 

Well, not true - I *did* count right.  Got my badge and some swag.  Thanks, WG!

You're welcome and thank you for putting this on, it was fun. As to delay, I'd put this down to Persha choking at the thought of giving me gold after some of my posts, as I struggle to recoup my investment and play my way back to profit.

 

Seems a win-win (unless you count the $ cost to Persha, a few $100 in pixel-cash)- some good PR for Persha and a venue for Player-Customers where they can finally get a few battles where bots are in the minority. Maybe run more often?

 

Now if only we could get that Moratorium on new content until the (most egregious) bugs are fixed....

Thanks, it was a fun weekend.

Was able to research both the ME109G and the ME109Z as well as specialized my 109F that I promptly sold..

Never want to play  it again..lol

Anyway, Thanks for your efforts,

Gunny

Same!  Thank you for the event -- fierce competition, high stakes, very fun.

 

You were really good!

At the end, I was AVOIDING guys like you, and Sea of Stars and many others.

Only shooting at red bots.. lol
