You have a 44% WnR and only 300 games. Have you considered asking for advice before complaining?

Have you tried playing on the red team. That is why most of us win.

 

Seriously, I can flight up with you M-F 930am-300pm  EST and help you via Discord.

This game has a learning curve that is more than just planes and shooting red targets.

Personally I am a little rusty myself but slowly getting back into the game.

Don't forget shoot the specialized planes first. So those are nominated for my worst plane category. Even my He-111

So I've just finished with the F2A and I gotta say the only redeeming feature of it is its low tier so the XP to be done with it was pretty low :facepalm:

 

Its got no altitude, no speed, slows from its short boost super quick, no firepower, no agility, no help from Equipment slots with only a Cockpit slot.

That thing is a complete turd.

 

Got F4F now, 2 battles in.

While some people in this thread say its not good & it certainly can't hope to match the P-40 for hooning around killing stuff its clearly vastly better than F2A.

Has a bit more reasonable altitude, healthy 10s boost with better speed retention, first battle got me the upgrade to mount 6* 12.7mm so its got firepower, agility is technically about the same 10.xs turn but feels like it actually gets round the corner better (I think the better speed retention?) & Airframe slot helps.

 

 


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

They call it a Buffalo for a reason.

The Buffalo use to be really good. Several of us would even flight up in buffalo's and cause havoc.

It was very under-estimated in pre 2.0

Interesting - I have exactly the opposite impression.  I've had a good time in the F2A, while F4F is difficult.

Specialist planes:

SPAD S.510 :: P-40 :: MiG-3 :: A6M1 :: XP-44 :: Fw 190 A-5 :: Me 209 V4 :: Venom :: Caudron C.714 :: Ki-88 :: Wirraway :: Tomahawk IIb

I loved the Buffalo. My magic moment in it was when a guy in a Ki-43 got on my tail and I forced an overshoot and blew him apart. He didn't seem to appreciate it.
