Tots unexpected.  Here I am in my lil' BV P 210 playing it like a python with a sore fang.  All the sudden, this award shows up.

 

So, like 3 or 4 months since the Vampire mission showed up?  I am now on stage 4!  How 'bout all y'all suckers.  

 

Who's the MAN!

Stuck on Efimov. Unlikely to progress because I really don't do GAA well. Rei calls me a treehugger but I could be more accurately described as a tree/pylon/cliff/building hugger.

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

If you are mouse + kb, bind a key to pitch up.  60% of the time it helps every time.

I've had one bound for a long time. My problem is I tend to fly too fast and misjudge distances

Efimov is easier in a Russian fighter...:hiding:

 

 

 

 

On a serious note :

 I had to learn to fly faster in my IL-10-40-40P to get Effimov.

And of course had to learn to give up the win.

I have 2 so far. Only because I gave up capturing sectors.

Run from 1 sector to the next smacking ground targets.

Simple in and out.

Awesome job on that rare achievement. I think it should come with a 100 gold reward too.

I would imagine they are easier in the BV-P210 or the F94D due to the way the rockets are set up.

I think that it's gotten harder & harder to get Kozhedubs ... games are so short (unbalanced teams, roflstomps) these days that often there is not even a squall !

Congrats.

 

I am on the second to the last mission for the Vampire (have two out of three Hero of the Sky).  I have had to use tokens for some of the harder achievements and I know I will use them to complete the last mission.

Jebus, Kozhedub is one I just get pretty easy just playing Lights, got 160 of them.

Of course, on a mission where you need to get it not so easy & then you get 5 in the next couple of days once you're past it...

 

Efimov is definitely relatively less impossible in a high-tier Soviet GA, I'm up to 12 of them now.

Vampire is totally worth the Tokens to skip that one.


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

I wasn't going to admit being a Kozhedubbabubba farmer this past week.  The P.1101 and the P.1092 - you just fly those guys and the awards fall out of the sky, so to speak.  Akamatsu, as well.  If I want to farm tokens, those guys seem to be the ones.  I started the week with 97 tokens, and now I have 124.  I might token-rage past a couple of the Vampire missions myself...

24 Kozhedub's here - mostly in the P.210, I believe. Like Losttwo said, the R4Ms make it really easy when the squall hits.

I think that’s why they put those requirements in there.  I can make several Lang’s a day but make one a requirement in a mission like that and the dry streak starts.  It’s a psychological ploy.  Oh, and this is the “Man” video

 This is me. I totally get frustrated after a week or so and want to move on to the next one which aught to be easy.
SO i just ignore it to the best of my ability and let it happen when it happens for the Vampire/Ascender missions.
If i get impatient and burn tokens then that focker will just show up without trying 8 games later.

The only medals that i didnt earn anyway after burning tokens at this point are

Marseilles. (i have an Ace though. so its "possible" for me)  

Efimov - 31 thunders but the survival requirement always escapes me.
apparently i need to fly more Russian GAA as opposed to ze Germans.

Although if i had a wingman dedicated to keeping me alive either one would probably be less of a hassle.

and Golubev
I know, I know already,  so you can Stop typing. 
I am just not a rocket man. But im gonna make the effort as i slowly crawl up the Corsair line.
I have even gone so far as to use a rocket sight on my Wildcat.
So get off my back.

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is very hit or miss. Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ... 
And yet it doesn't stop me from speculation.

USA: XP-31, F1C-2, Model 81A-1, P-40, F4F, P-38F, P-39N-1, P-47B, P-38J, XF15C, XP-58 

USSR: Tu-1  UK: DH.100 F1. Japan: not even once. France: SE 100
Germany: Fw 56, He 112, Fw 190 A-5, Bf 109 B, Bf 109 E, Bf 109 E-3, Me209 A, Do 17 Z, Do 217 M, Hs 123, Ha 137, Ju 87 G, Me 265, Me 1099 B-2,  Bf 110 C-6, Me 410, Do 335 A-1,

I think the only medal I can't now reliably get are Gabreski, Ace, and Marseille.

 

Gabreski can burn in the sulfurous place.  Ace medals.... I regularly hit 17-19 kills.. then the game ends *sad fase* and that's the same problem for the Marseille.. I'll reach 15 or 16 kills without dying and then the game ends before I can finish off #17.

Kozhedub is one I will go days and days without seeing because it feels half random chance (the game lasting long enough after squall and you being positioned right and the enemy being grouped or spread out right). Now... there are ways to -farm- them and he easiest I've found requires a flight capable of controlling the game tempo. Instead of trying to take caps, you just try to deny the caps. Many ways to keep people from either side capping.. then you have to be able to supremacy cap quick right before squall and start going on a kill spree. WHOLE_PUNCHER and I have played with the theory, its how I got about 15 of the 45 I have.

Efimov... Losttwo is entirely correct. Go faster and ignore finishing caps.. turning around and wasting the energy slows down the attrition of capture points. I figured this out trying to get one for some mission or another I couldn't token past it and can now -fairly- reliably get one since I stopped worrying about finishing the captures.

Edited to add: Also, grats and I hope to see you in a Vampire soon! They're an intensely fun plane =D

Thanks!  At this pace, I might get it as an early birthday gift.  My birthday is in October.

Yeah Gabreski is very hard to get, I have 4 but I'm not sure how.

 

And Golubev, no.

I need to experiment more with shooting rockets at the ground under GAs, it seems to be a fairly reliable way to get rocket kills & if I can get my eye in at it I could get me one maybe.

 

Marseille requires a T&B fighter defending a cap vs a bot Light/Multirole stream and RNGesus ensuring your bots/teammates elsewhere get just enough of the other caps for the win but not a rapid supremacy.

Use BV P.210, P.212, and P.215.02 with R4M. Otherwise use F-94D with HVAR. You'll soon be scoring Golubev's against light fighters.
