I can sit this one out if you want to stick with T6 - I don't want to drag everyone else down :)

 

A worthwhile purchase, as a trainer for your Emil pilot - the Spitfire V DB-605.  Great plane.

Why not head up to tier 6 yourself? Based on your playtime and the planes you've flown, it seems you could easily get up there.

Good question.  I was waiting to go to Tier 6 until I'd reached a point where I felt I had a better grasp of mechanics at Tier 5, but if there's not a ton of difference between the tiers I can do that.  Plus this is the training room so it won't cost me anything but silver for consumables and repairs.

 

The DB-605 is a great suggestion.   I've researched the Tier 6 Spitfire V and Bf 109 F, but I'd have to retrain the pilots (they're both 7 points) or start new.  With the DB-605 I can just plop my E pilot in and go.  Plus I believe premiums go on sale in the next day or two.

 

So I plan to be there this Saturday with a Tier 6 (assuming I can get the client up and running again by then).

When I get the game to run again I'll see about getting the nose art customized :)

 

Thank you again - that was very kind of you.

you're a good pilot, and the A-26 is a good plane         i love the six 50cals in the nose         and the too-accurate two 50cal tailgunners

 

it's a good combo of bomber, heavy and GA, even though it doesn't excel in any of those classes

tech tree Beaus in the Ram Your Neighbor, or can anyone suggest any other low-mid tier plane that has rockets?

 

nothing in this game carries the smug satisfaction of a rocket into somebody's cockpit

 

 

if it's a wrist watch or even a pocket watch (you still might be carrying one of those), make sure all the numbers are the right way up

 

ask a young'un to read it for you, if you can't find your spectacles

that cannot be true        are there really 23 bombers in the game?       

 

so much wasted dev time that could have been used on more heavies

 

wait...  whatever would we shoot at?       

 

why would we want to deprive ourselves of the orgasmic rush from seeing the giant orange ball of fire where a bomber was 5 secs ago?

 

23 more bombers, please       ty WG

Thx for the gamez last night guys.

Sorry about no Discord - I wuz using a different PC, and it had no sound, no microphone.  I was disappointed to have missed ACE's boozy commentary.

 

The A-26 Festival of Bombering was a hoot.

here's a great idea from lose_dude about a historical scenario that i'm going to "borrow" for SNL this weekend

 

we flew Axis vs Allies for many weeks, and then we stopped       my bad

 

so this weekend, we're going to fly specific country vs country, bots and all       first up, Japanese vs British

 

we'll stay low-mid tiers, to accommodate (sp?) as many pilots as possible         lights, heavies, MRs, bombers, GAs  (there are no Brit/Japanese GAs)

 

2 tiers = T4 and T5 at the same time       we'll go with kill-bots-plus-maim-your-buddy   or   h2h with superpilots 69%+WR in T4       or both

 

look to see what you have in both nations         i think i remember i have some favorite Japanese planes somewhere       drag 'em out and dust 'em off

there's only two T4 Japanese planes       the Hayabusa l and the Zero       

 

looks like there's going to be some turn-on-turn action Saturday night!

Yay!  Tier 4 and 5 - my current sweet spot :)

 

I have the Japanese T4 A6M1 (Specialized).

I have the British T4 Blenheim F and Hurricane I, and T5 Spitfire I, Spitfire Ia and Hurricane IID, all also specialized.

 

Win rates for the A6M1 is only 68.75%.  Blenheim F is 63.64% and Hurricane I is a whopping 51.35%.   Meh, meh and ugh :)

 

Now if we go with German I can bring my T 5 Emil with a whopping 70% win rate LOL
