Actually I have rather great luck when the Attack / Defend Airfield daily mission is active.

Almost as if the daily missions are MM biased.

Just had it happen again.  Specialist Spitfire I from a clan I dread seeing on my team immediately pinged the airfield on a map with two mines.  Predictable beat down ensued because I certainly could not cap the mines with my Yak-1.  But hey, that Shitfire managed to farm enough points for second place on the team behind my Yak-1.

maybe I just need to accept my losses and do some airfield camping with my yak until I specialise it.  It's getting old losing while I am killing bots to take things, and getting no progress.

I was just in a losing battle where both sides had 7 players.  My side, of course, had 5 of those players in the bottom 5 ranks.  What a sludge fest.

Can relate...... I really feel ya bro.

 

I finally got my 3rd win after like 10 losses yesterday. It was a single player game.

And it's confirmed: 288C is not bad at all, even with stock engine. It's the headhunters and poor teammates that ruined this bomber's experience.

Wait until you have the Attack / Defend Airfield mission.

Then work on specializing by staying at the airfield.

You will win almost every match.

I guarantee it...well almost. :popcorn:

I finally finished it.  A lot of Spitfires are going to to need to die for me to feel it was worth it.

Shitfires dying is a worthwhile goal in and of itself.  I like to blaze through an airfield/airbase in my HF and light up whatever Shitfires I see.  They melt REAL fast under quad 30mm cannon...

There is nothing better in WoWP than catching a Spitfire stalled at the top of a climb, as you come down from the Heavens in a heavy.

too many light fighters are too damn slow to do much other than take one cap and hold it, but I hate when you see 4-5 guys camp a cap, ffs if you see 2 guys holding one, go somewhere else

After any pathetic attempt I might make to get a couple bullets into them in passing they always whip around and boost up my tailpipe and shoot me down before I can get to the "Heavens".  Best policy is to go elsewhere.

Oh yes there is.  Killing P-38s who thought they could turn with my Spitfire.  You have to try and make them hate heavy fighters before they realize how GOOD they are.

Only a doofus tries to turn with a Shitfire in anything but a Yak or a Zero.

Unfortunately the P-38F offshoots straight from the P-40 so a lot of low-tier players just hop over from the Tomahawk and try to fly the lightning in the same way.

Meanwhile:
