Ok i have been wondering about this for a long time. I have the equipment High-Speed Gas Turbine mounted on my Ta-152 at ultimate. It says that I have a total of 8 seconds boost time but in battle it will only give me a total of 7 seconds. Has anyone else experienced this or is it just a problem i'm only having?

Can you please post a screen shot of the in hanger stats?
That'll help me figure out what's going on. :great:

I've been, off-and-on, having a different problem: Pressing the boost key(by default bound to W, I have kept it that way), but the boost doesn't engage. Sometimes taking my finger off it and pressing and holding it a second time will fix it, and sometimes it won't and I have to take my finger off of it and press and hold it a THIRD time. This usually happens near the beginning of the battle, often in the first few seconds.

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.

Yeah sure. I'll get one in hangar and in battle. Might be a couple days though.

That's strange. I've had that happen once too.

i know that the W key will be the first one that will wear out on my keyboard, quickly followed by the flaps key

 

i can't keep my finger off the W      which has real consequences

Things get really weird & squirrelly at first few seconds after spawn/battle start, I've learned its best to wait a couple of secs for it to settle down before using boost.

Also Boost tends not to engage if you're in right-click camera mode looking around, will stay engaged if you have boost already enabled then right-click though.


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

I'd really like to see a screenshot of your Hangar stats when you are on "Service" tab. As High-Speed Gas Turbine also decreases boost availability (-15-20%) by default when ultimate even if it gives you extra +5% as a special effect bonus.
