also remember guys if you capped the airfield free repairs and that shoots up the killing tally you are bound to get huge scores if you do it right even in a LF

They should seriously BAN people who fly LF and hog to airfields.

 

Just now there's a game where a Mig-9 dragged me into a T9 game with two plants.

He even REFUSED to engage an enemy F-84 defending the enemy plant

And that DIRECTLY CAUSED our loss.

 

Such people should be banned for life. Not those who are annoyed by them (I got infuriated by such incompetent potatoes and is now on a 2 day chat ban)

NO, don't proprogate that.

This is exactly what causes those LF cancers to hog to airfields.

I really understand your frustration with this but the truth is that everyone is free to play their own game in the way they want.  And that is a good thing in the long run.

 

I started checking Battle History on these guys when I notice one doing this and all I've seen so far have a low 50's win rate. 

 

I use my win rate as a clue to how I am doing.  Evidently they use medal count or something. 

 

To each his own, the freedom to be as dumb as you like is a precious thing.

In my early days, when I have yet to get my P.1102, there was a guy in a FJ-1, with merely 30% WR....

That guy was a walking (flying? no he doesn't really fly) disaster, you see stuff like 1 kill 3 deaths or sth like that...

You have to doubt how the hell he got all the way to Tier IX with that kind of performance...

 

My own WR took a nosedive recently, from 73.8 to 73.5, mostly due to the high tier games and especially Ju 288C......

I can see potential but right now it's not really working well...

SInce the game is mostly random bots there's nothing unusual about that.  Mine has always been around 51%.  90% or more of the team is bots, so 90% or more of the result is random.

Part of the problem is these dang missions. These missions often ask you to lose the game by focusing on the least important thing. I just completed a mission where I had to shoot down so many planes over an airfield.

And tokens, and mission completion, etc...  I imagine there are just a lot people that would rather be constantly dogfighting in the central cap for a solid 10-15 minutes instead of eating 2-3 minutes downtime making a cup of coffee while trying to cruise their slow-[edited]dogfighter to cross the Yawning Chasm Of Nothing to another cap.

I'd rather do that too, but running up a big score and losing because I camped all game is still losing.  Now when you get two garrisons and an airfield in the middle...now that's some good camping.  they either have to fly through you or around you.  I've made some nice PP camping mines in my turnfighters too.  You just have to have the enemy split up enough that you can kill before the next one gets there.  If they can swarm you, you're screwed.

Which is why I've been suggesting removing all 3-cap maps for a while.

Camping the Airfield

 

I think I camped the Airfield on this one too

 

Camping the Mining Plant

 

There are some games you can camp at one location and win, others you lose.

It is all about how you play the game. Not how others play the game, but you.

I have turned inevitable losses to a win simply by being last man and making the right decision.

 

I have my own tin foil hat theory and that is " the game is biased towards ( in favor of )  your daily missions "

The more you play into the confines of your daily missions. The greater odds of winning.

Combined with the " role " of the aircraft and playing it as assigned adds to the odds of winning as well.

Like being the Receiver on a football team or the Tight End. You have a role to play in the team game.

Your role is assigned in the huddle. Or at the start of selecting your aircraft, pressing battle, entering match maker

and ultimately the start of the match.
