The Yak- 3RD at tier VII with only one gun that is " Ouch "  but is still nice to fly.

From my understanding all of the tier 11 planes are utter garbage, I'm still trying to research my 1st tier 11 but I'm stuck in a loop, is this a well known bug?

Yep, the current map are just too small for supersonic jets, and you have extremely hard times hitting the enemy at Mach 2.2  :unsure:

Ridiculously small maps would be very amusing

 

Imagine a tiny map with just 1 cap zone ?

 

I really like the idea of playing tier 10 on that tier 1 map 

 

Everyone in Wot forum scoffed when i said i thought the football maps pitches from the world cup event would make good battle maps, but imagine the carnage!

Third Reich:

He 100 D-1 - crap maneuverabiliy, crap guns (tier 5 FGS! you meet Me-410)

Fw 190 A-1 - zero maneuverabiliy, crappy speed to escape lack the firepower (and those 20mms overheat FAST and cooldown sloooow)

Ta-152 - no skill needed just RNG for those 30mms to hit something oh and zero maneuverabiliy

Me 209 A and Bf 109 Gustav - lol if any other fighter wants your scalp, you are doomed :D painful to grind, handicapped planes, period

Bf 109 Z - the notorious 30 mm MK-108 (1942)...nothing else to say, RNG

Soviets:

Yak-7, Yak-9 and Yak-9U- the bots can 1 shot you from the other side of the map, but if you want to hit something with those 37-45mms, lol hello RNG

USA:

F2A-1 Buffalo - crap guns crap maneuverabiliy, pathetic fighter in tier 3

XF4U-1 - wow hardcore crap plane, useless armament zero maneuverabiliy and all this in tier 5 :D

Japan:

Ki-18 - tier 1 light firepower in tier 3, period

Ki-94-I - 2x30mm and 2x37mm you wont have the ace medal trust me :D unreliable armament (RNG)

Only had time for a couple of quick games last night to do the daily reward, looked through my hanger to see what low tiers needed moving towards specialist and noticed my rarely used Hawker Demon.

 

And found out why I rarely bother, what a heap of crap that thing is in game! I took my worst low tier kicking for a long time in the first game (against tier 3s), not helped by hopeless team mates.

I loved my Demon :unsure: nice maneuverabiliy and hp, the guns are ok, and even has a turret. It is a great plane if you ask me.

And it's faster than any other fighter on tier V except for the 209 V4.

I sold my worst plane.
I flew 241 planes and have 72 in the hangar.
Even now there is one worst plane in the 72 ... I am working to find out! :)

I am shocked that no one has mentioned the SB. This is the only plane I've ever given up on.

Seriously, the only reason the blind spot is smaller than the B-17 D's is because it's a smaller plane.

I also keep buying (and then selling) the Bf-110 B, thinking that "it can't be that bad", then "oh yes, it is"

In relation to previous comments, I hated the tech tree P-36 (this was pre 2.0), so when I got the XP-36F,

I was delighted, it cured why I hated the stock version, no fire power. But anyway this is all so subjective

that I'm not surprised that someone disagrees, because, I know a lot of people will vouch for the Bf-110.

I have to strongly disagree. Bf-110 B tier IV German heavy fighter is one of the best aircraft on this tier. The problem is maybe with players flying it the wrong way. It was the plane I used mostly for the last event scoring more than 600 cap points (average) in it. Top score was way over 800 cap points. From time to time you can get an Ace with it.

I use it often for daily missions and it is definitely better then British Blenheim F heavy.

The 110-B is an awesome plane.

I would be more than happy to listen.

The basic thing is: forget you have bombs. You don't. Period. It is not a bomber, neither it is a GAA. You are a heavy FIGHTER, your main job is to shut down an area for hostile HF and bombers. After that pummel cheeky LF, with occasional GAA kill if the coast is clear. Do not turn fight, do not go low altitude without cover. BnZ machine, not a bomber, not a light fighter - keep that in mind.

This is an extremely interesting observation.

 

For me, this Bf-110 B is a seal clubbing monster, a machine where even I feel invincible and an absolute master of my fate in the game. And all who commented afterwards feel the same.

 

And for you it's horrible.

 

I understand you mate, completely. For example, for me the entire Bf 109 line sucks. That is, I suck them. While others praise it to high heavens and make miraculous scores. An that's how it should be. We all have different play styles and what's trash to one is gold for other.

 

Rock on, Gary :honoring:

I like a lot of things about the Bf-109 BUT, its not a stable gun platform. I find it really quite twitchy and over responsive when trying to bring guns on a target. - This may be because I fly with a joystick and must fly my plane to the target and the 109's are on the whole very responsive and agile aircraft. (which makes them twitchy) 

Despite this I do still like them and I have fun (and a modest amount of success) flying them. 

 

I also like the 110's (except the 110-C which I tolerate but don't love too much) but they don't turn....and as I often forget this it gets me into some bad places.

(That said, I also like the Hornet despite the fact I have had a very convincing demonstration of how it is so not as totally awesome as I think. :-p )

Yak-3RD.

 

The biggest pile of ****. Got it from the box, so let's try it. Tried one game and was useless among fast HFs and whatnot. Turn tight, that's all. Remnant from the days of old, of light turners. Just one gun, a single one in the hub. Overheats like all Ruskie guns, took me 60-90 seconds to kill a GAA. You are a threat to low flying lights and that's all. For all else you lack firepower, stamina, height, everything.

 

Avoid at all cost.

You are not saying this seriously, are you... 3-RD is OP, it's so crazy it's sick. If you're talking about the single cannon, well... Could've been worse, it could have zero ammo and you'd have to 'taran' everything. It's a seriously awesome plane.
