A while ago, I was flying on my stock p-47n. I was trying to solo cap the airstrip, but there was an Akira A6M5 there. Instead of crying about cash grabs and unfairness, I shot him. He went down to about 30%, then began to outturn me. So I turned around and boosted as fast as I could. He shot me to about 50%, then I left his range. A while later, I turned around, and deleted all that was left of his health. Even though he was specced and had a special pilot, I won. On a stock plane with no equipment.

If you try hard enough and play your plane to its advantages, THAT is what makes you win.

Well....DUH.....just because someone flies a specialized airplane (with a unique pilot) does not guarantee an automatic win.  If that was the case they would have a 100% win rate.  Basically you played your plane like it was suppose to be played...BnZ.  Also unless you chatted with the player, you assume just because they have the T6 Zero..they also have the Akira pilot.  Zeros are not fast, they catch fire quick and yes can turn on a dime.

So that is why I cannot give chase to a 109Z in my zero, even though it's specd and has that Akira pilot. Who would have thunk it?!!

 

Thanks for the pro tip.

Just the tip.

BTW, I laughed out loud, so +1 for you.

I spec few if any planes. Mainly because those angel wings are the first targets I look for.

1) Because they are human pilots.

2) Because they are human pilots who are not programed ;)

You will soon learn that it will cost you a match.

You can tell a human by their name ( very few exceptions ) 

Your name is a dead give away that you are a human flying a elite plane with no Ultimate Equipment bonuses  

Winning is not about high score

Winning is not about destroying the human pilots ( I can go an entire match sometimes and never see the other human ) 

Winning is about the ABC's

 

 

Always Be Capping

Saw CMDR Viper on the enemy team, top tier in his specialist Tornado. He wallet-warriored Elliot Millie to review her. He didn't do that well though, all things considered. Special pilots do NOT guarantee a win, for sure.

An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

They do not.        the same thing happened to me.       

 

We'll, I don't fly MRs much any, so I expected that.       

 

But I thought Millie would wipe the table clean for me.      All I had to do was wiggle the mouse a little bit   

 

That's what the advertisement said, I swear it did

 

edit:   after rereading it, it did not

Interesting how someone with only 2K battles is going to continue to "judge" when they are indeed the least qualified. As a CC we have to spend money to make content. If you can't appreciate that, then I truly feel sorry for you. And when you're ready for some lessons, just drop me a line. :coin:

I did say that I totally forgot CCs have to spend money, LOL. Even Postal does. Veebat did. So does Reitousair. You played well, you just didn’t dominate as much as I thought you would have, given the legendary pilot.

The cost of 140 certificates - which I don't know off the top of my head.
