where did all these potatoes come from? seriously the past weekend, was a potato fest like I have never seen. its one thing to be a low tier potato, thats expected, and its why I only fly low tiers to get my dailies done, but when you are flying anything tier 6 and above, you are expected to at least be able to get 3k , most BOTS get 3k. you are expected to look at your minimap and fly towards your help and god forbid, maybe help a teammate who is in a furball with 3-4 others instead of blithely flying past on your way to fight ada. guys who get killed over and over flying to the airfield in the middle while the other team has ALL OF THE CAPS. Guys who by tier 6 have not figured out that attacking ground targets with lightfighters is stupid. Guys in GAA who type " I'm not going to the factory because its full of fighters., im going to the garrison" true story. I think for supper i'm gonna go make hashbrowns.

I keep wondering where all these new players are coming from.  Are they doing advertising for the game somewhere?

I've been right-clicking on their names in the after battle report and checking their "Battle Results". Most of them registered long before 2.0 came out. That's at least with the ones playing tiers 7-10. Idk about lower tiers.

Maybe that explains the guy I was just in battle with.  He had 39 flights and was flying a Tier IX.  He did about as well as you might expect.

I had a battle last night where all 3 of the other players in the battle scored lower than 2000. A couple were around 1250, and I don't think the third even had 1800.  .

perhaps...
they are wandering internet zombies

they are attracted to smell of death

the game is rotting and giving off an odour

in space and the internets

zombies and potatoes are often confused with each other

 


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Perhaps it is from their boredom that they met up with a gambler

on a train bound for no where.

It is the end of the school year and Seniors have graduated.

People making more on unemployment than when they worked.

Other real world events dragging them in.

They have become bored with COD zombies, Fortenight pups and League of Legend stomps.

Searching for new games. Some returning to " give it the old college try ".

Maybe some are searching for new less toxic games or want to spread their toxic behavior.

 

Ran into a preying eagle in tier 10 the other day that told me < in spoiler screen shot >

Should have seen the conversation and accusations flying in the hangar. Poor fella shouldn't be flying in tier 10 yet.

Some of these people just can not be helped. I get that. NOW.

 

GOOD NEWS IS : Winning in all tiers seems to be easier because there are less " better " pilots than me.

I can win a match with less than 3000 points.

I seem to be getting a lot of the idle/bot class of players lately.  Next to no damage done, no aircraft shot down, no ground targets taken.  They seem to exist only to grab 1000 points and take up a slot in the team.

 


Fly crooked and shoot straight.

I had a game yesterday with 3 humans on my team with 10, 20, and 36 hours in the game.  Chatted with one that was in his second day of the game, struggling to get the silver to buy his next plane in line.  (P-40 to Mustang, fwiw)

 

I've been seeing a lot of this, and I for one am glad to see new players, something that the game badly needs.  So, don't be toxic, and be nice!  :great:

Luckily, if you're just grinding planes for specialist, or working on token missions potatoes (mostly) don't matter.  Just fly and enjoy the scenery.  And ignore your win rate, because the more starch you have, the less wins you get...

Sadly my frustration with some of them turns into advice like, "Shoot the red planes, please."  At least I'm polite.:)
