Had the pleasure of running across a pair of new pilots yesterday, both with roughly 7 hours into the game.  (both flying Oscars, fwiw)   A few hours later, spotted one of them again, top of his team with 13K+ points.  good onya, to the both of them.  :honoring:

 

Both pleasant to chat with, and it was nice to see new pilots having a good time flying.  :izmena:

Yes.  The game suddenly seems a lot more stable.  Is it just me?  Anyway, a lack of all the bugs we've (I've) been dealing with won't hurt retention.

I try to give encouragement to new players. Although they drive me nuts when they buy a high tier premium and get slaughtered (usually when they are on my team)  :sceptic:

 

LEARN THE GAME FROM THE GROUND UP.

speaking of new folks...  would it be possible to have 2 T9s USA LFs, but with less than 500 battles?

not going to name him (or her), but here's an interesting-looking account...

 

imgur's not cooperating, even with removing the s     here's the links

 

top of list

 

and the rest of the list

 

just looks... sparse to me

Maybe someone who got those planes in 1.x and those stats don't show on that page?  Obviously NOT someone who keeps his old planes.

 

I was always short on hangar space in 1.x and often sold the previous planes in the line when I upgraded.  Don't ever seem to be short hangar space in 2.x with all the ones I get as awards, so my hangar is growing again.

I think the word you are looking for is "rollover"

here's his 1.9 plane list     386 total battles in 1.9

 

something looks... incomplete somehow, taking 1.9 and 2.0 together      is this a dev acct?

 

is there a way that i can also erase planes that i embarrassed myself in?

Do they go away with their stats when you sell them?

With that many P-51H battles, you can get 1 tier9. The second one would be from free exp

I could have less than that number with some T8's... santa crates = boost to T10.

I've noticed quite a few accounts like this over time and always wondered. I'm guessing free XP from tanks players or? Heck if I know from there. It's possible, yes... but I too have wondered if there's a way to erase/re-do planes that you were bad in LOL

You literally never need to buy a plane you FXP past - just like WoT. In WoT I found more than a few players who played the most OP premium for 600-700 games and skipped the worst tanks on a tree to prop up their stats. Paper unicoms.

 

However just because someone runs up to a tier doesn't mean they suck.

I think someone should suggest marking new players with red markers.

I hate getting in trouble when I shoot the blue markers.
