Hello all, I'm happier with this video than my first. Here is a review and guide with suggested game play style for the American tier 8 premium light fighter P80a Shooting Star. 

 

Feedback welcome and I hope some will find the video useful.

Thanks for doing videos such as this.

 

Feedback:

In my opinion, the intro is too long. The intro music loop gets repetetive quickly. The actual video comes across as more of a fighter guide than a review of the plane itself, which in itself isn't a bad thing, but more info/opinions about the plane in question would be welcome, especially compared to the alternatives.

 

Anyways, I'm glad to see you do these kind of videos and look forward to your next one.

I agree about the intro! It's a simple "It will do" as I learn the software etc. Literally my second video :D

Why do you have special pilot for premium plane?

May I suggest the third one be about the JL-1A-37? :)

Hello! I will be putting up something, but I don't think in time for the plane going off sale, but I have stock in game footage right now.

Why not? Always good to have more pilots, especially handy to have a spare highly skilled pilot for new lines or when you need a good pilot for an event. 

 

For example, I already have a new pilot in the meteor for when brit bombers arrive and I can just quickly retrain him and not have a tonne of grinding to do.

I have like 3 UK pilots with 6 points, but they are generic, not tailored for a particular plane. Especially when I trained them on tiers VI, VII and VIII (Mustang IA, Meteor, Seafang).

Same for US. And there always pilots from other planes that could use some additional training.

So having a pilot made especially for premium plane seems just weird.

Yeah, I only started doing it when there were tournaments etc still around and it would be a royal pain swapping a high skill point pilot around when I could just pull 1 from a premium and retrain them super fast. It mostly started after the change where you couldn't bring the pilot up to 100% in a premium plane. 

 

If there was an automatic return crew function like in the WoT xvm it would make things way way easier.
