i've seen Mustang strafers several times over the years       frankly, i probably earnestly strafed GTs myself early on, so i have no room to talk

Like I said, there are times when the health bar of that GT is so low that you know the hub cannon on that German LF can take it.  And if you're passing by anyway, might as well, right?  When I am doing the Wild Weasel thing for my bomber team makes, I'll go and kill the AA guns, then work on GTs if the ADA are far away.  But that's more with MRF and HF, and less with LF.

Mr. F.L. Tayback, Esq., I *knew* there was someone out there that just did tokens!  Since most of the "daily" Period missions do not have a win condition, and since 2/3rd of the medals don't have a win condition, you can token your butt off without ever seeing sweet, sweet salvage.

 

Well, CervixCovid, I do admit that I have fun playing. But the most fun is getting tokens for nothing but playin' and my gold for free. I toss WG a sawbuck or less every year or two, but I am cheap. I get my tokens with sweat and effort and my gold the same.

 

I could say "I never payed for it" but that would be a lie. I just like to earn my stuff through manly-man play and.. oh what the heck, shooting down lots of bots and unmoving ground targets.

 

Darnit! I am a panty waist no good for nuthin' ground pounding loser.

 

There I said it! Satisfied??? I hope so you sadistic baster.

Senor Roberto_Mesas, I literally laughed out loud.  Plus one for you.

I would like to add that to including a win percentage for stages there must be some considerations. 

Solo versus flights

varieties of planes. 

Take CUP for example and the fact he is mostly a bomber pilot.

37K battles in bombers and a 66+% win rate ( how much of that has been from hacking and cheating :P )

I mean come on Captain give the other planes some love too.

 

Seriously, a foot note of " Win rates are a generalization your mileage  may very"


agree.  There are players that only play when they are flighted up or only in their OP plane.  Win rates will be different for people that mostly fly solo and are far more subject to the whims of MM and rng.  Example - used to be a player..in the HOF top 3 all the time (hasn’t flown in several years). Oliviako.   Only flew the Tier 10 German GAA.  He was a machine with that plane.  But his win rate was never subject to any of the normal negatives that affect an account by working on tech tree stuff, with other planes, etc.

Agree plus 1. I have an alt account I started that is only for try hard winning, no premiums and I am at tier 6, not enough battles for the HoF yet but I will be in the top 30 if my win rate holds. I’m doing it solo but even solo if you pick a powerful line and quit while you’re ahead each day you can manage a good WR. But it is not as fun as playing like I do on my main IMO.

My stats from 1.9 would disagree with that theory, at just under 2k battles with a 49.52% win rate and average of 0.64 kills per battle. Granted, that was always against human opponents and "6 beers" was usually around my starting point (or about 3-4 shots of 151 rum), but I seem to get much better general results flying sober now.

the issue with being at tier 5. games end too fast. people suck at the game too hard.

 

flying to circles and shooting planes or GT's seems to be too big brained for 70% of the player base
