I run only two very specific mods for this game.
One is a different gun sight. it uses a larger recticle that makes shooting at high angles of deflection less of a pain in the butt.

The other mod is one that marks every bot with an *asterisk in front of its name <*Gavin *Ivan *Mechislav *Chad *Hans etc> in any place in the battle UI where that name can show up.

Thus for me i know who is human. And all of you get an extra bit of attention when it comes to determining target priority  .
The only thing that Specialist symbol does for me is to tell me That Human Over There is more likely to produce extra #tryhard shenanigans when I decide to make it Be Gone.

I specialize what i can and when i can.
I have realized that any human player that can only tell the difference between me and a bot by the wings
is not likely to be as much of a threat as they could be.
Also the gear is useful when I know what to do with it. This can lead to interesting and different gameplay experiences. For example look to the Bf 109 Emil with a Turn build and swap it out for a cruise build. It becomes a different plane altogether.

Pehaps most importantly it gives me an ongoing goal to keep playing planes that i might otherwise allow to collect dust.
(hello P-38. Its nice to see ya.)

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
 I start on the right track and then sometimes make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ...

Updated my list again, I'm starting to run low on planes to Specialise: out of 74 in Hangar only 20 haven't reached Specialised.

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

Another update.

Now 50 out of 74 in Hangar

I did sell one Specialised plane the F4F, I wanted to enjoy it but its really quite irredeemable compared to other T5s & I've moved on to the superb F4U-1.

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