Been flying BVPs since 1.9 Game and have fallen in love with the planes.  I have been through it all with being able to take out an IL-20 with one volley to doing 5 rocket kills in one battle with the BFP-215 back in 1.9.  Now after nerfing the rockets no longer take out 1100 HP with one volley the number seems to be less than 800 at most.  Despite that I still love the planes.  In the beginning I tracked rocket kills in the API but with the start of 2.0 those stats have been removed.  So now we are left with the award count instead which is not a real indication of how good you are with doing this task.  In this game I know of two people that lead the pack in rocketeer awards and that is myself and EvilSnowMan.  I know that some of you will remember an individual back in 1.9 that had over 3,000 rocketeer awards but that individual was kicked out of the game and only has 7 rocketeers in 2.0. 

 

Soooooo, here is my question: If you think you are in contention for being in the top 10 for Rocketeer awards let me and others know how many you have.

 

As of today, EvilSnowMan has 1,761 and I have 1,746.

 

Let us know if you have more or less and where you might be on the leader board.

 

Also, it sure would be nice to get this and bomb kills back into the API or into the game for that matter.  So sound off to those in power to put it back so we can all track it!!!!!

 

Thanks for your input in advance

I think I have maybe ..... three.  One of them was yesterday and by accident.  My right middle finger twitched as I was making a steep turn and off flew a rocket.  I heard a plane explode, and I hope it was one of theirs. :unsure:

Ha!!  I am not on anyone's leader board because I am Biplane Girl, righter of wrongs, sticking extra wings on monoplanes so they will fly properly and wreaking VENGANCE FROM ABOVE with multiple wings!!!  

 

That being said, I do have a singular rocket story. 

 

I was innocently flying along in my LaGG-3 (I know, not a biplane but ... stay with the story) minding my own business when I find myself in a head on situation with a Ki-45.  Belatedly I realize that I am (literally) flying in a plywood plane and that I am dead, Dead, DEAD, DEAD, DEAD!!! :(

 

I start casting about for a solution ... can I turn away and run?  Nope, probably not, dive to the side, climb more left or right!?! ... no probably not going to work either (did I mention I was flying a plywood plane??), is there a biplane around that can rescue me?  NO!! ...  OMG I AM SO GOING TO DIE!!!  :ohmy:

 

Then inspiration strikes me, I have rockets, LOTS of ROCKETS and really having no apparent choice, I just start hitting the R key as fast as my noob girl fingers will type and ... BOOOMMM!!!  Not sure how may rockets hit him but however many their were (I had eight :)) they were enough. 

 

I AM VICTORIOUS!!!!  YAY Me!!  :medal:

 

Anyway, that's one for me, apparently 1,761 to go!!  :izmena:

 

Now back to your regularly scheduled thread.  :great:

Yes, it's haughty and its arrogant but you're a battleship with 16 inch guns and Britannia Rules the Waves.  Maybe a bit of arrogance in this case is appropriate.

Couldn't have been a LAGG-3 or LAGG-3 34. No rockets. Yak 7 perhaps?

Community event along the lines of trikke or mnbv_fw?  Or events like WG-sponsored events?

 

I can see it now - run what you brung T4 biplane.  If it's not a biplane, you can't play.  That limits the field a little, but at least it could be on a small map, and you could get around in a hurry.

 

OR:

 

T2, run what you brung biplane madness.  But then you'd get the skies full of Ar-67s and -68s. and a few Hs-123s  :)

hey you may want to consider moving from the "R" key to the right mouse button if you are using the RMB for anything else.  It eliminates having to hunt and peck for the R key

It would be cool if we could see the ratios of medals to battles. I suspect many of the ‘leaders’ are just the ones who put a lot of time into the game - which is fair, or course. I would just like a way to see at a glance how effective players are regardless of number of battles played. McCampbell’s, Golubev, Akamatsu, Gabreski, Efimov, etc per battle would be a very good way of seeing how good a player is as opposed to just win rate or ‘aircraft type effectiveness’.

 

 

Cheers!

Glenn, that would be great!!!!!

 

And if they would just put the data in the API we could do that stat calculation ourselves

 

But sad to say they don't even want us to see the data

 

Just like in the old game in the top left corner was the head count of people playing and that went away with all the other great info
