A vet in an alt account flying just one line, and buying  his way up when possible?


Yeah, but wouldn't a vet know exactly how to play, and not attack armored ground targets in a MG-armed LF?

Complete potato behavior from a total newb, I get.  But 200 battles and T9?  That implies SOME level of skill at the game, right?

You really don't think you can get to tier 9 in 200 games?...focused? ...as in not bothering to unlock all plane modules and using paid silver for plane purchase.  I think it could be done, but id agree it would be doubly tough being a potato.

A vet with a nick change who already had the planes but only 200 battles in 2.0?

De-arse your bunks! Man the planes! The Fokkers are in sight! BAM ba LAMMM!

Yeah, I can see moving up the tiers quickly if you are skilled.  Especially in LFs, where the XP toll is the least.

 

But you have to be skilled and focused - no time for potato behavior.

 

That's why it just doesn't make sense.  There is some piece that's missing here.

Maybe.  I think my flights from 1.x are still visible, even though I changed names.

 

But you are correct - you have to dig for 1.x data.

Well, skilled is not a term I associate with this guy.  He had barely a smidgen over a 50% win rate.

I guess that's what doesn't add up.  200 battles to T9, even in the easiest LF line, sounds like a bit of a stretch for someone who doesn't know how to play.  I might add up the minimum XP required to do that and see how it might be possible.

Not sure what all the confusion is about. There are ways of getting a tier 10 in your hangar without ever playing even 1 game.

Thank you for filling in the last puzzle piece.
