This is not WoT and even if you have too much gold this is really not worth it. Save your gold for the camo discount that might come next year :D

 

My comment was about spending gold on premium ammo (because he said he is a gold noob) and was not about premium planes or premium account.

at T8, well each plane is capable and amazing credit earners, I know Zen loves the US XP-58 but I can't take to it at all, I find it hard to hit anything with it's massive killer guns(which kinda defeats the killer guns:child:). I should have bought the UK Seafang.

 

 

You must have this combination for it to work.

 

Spoiler

 

But still, it's very niche - against bombers and GAA. A good example of how specific some of the Premium Planes are. You've made a good "best of" in your post.

Did you notice a whole mass of premium planes missing from the tech tree? including that dreadful CN Ki-43-lc.

I also did a quick count of my Premium planes........I have 56!:amazed: Amazing what you collect over the years.....still don't have them all.

Thanks for the replies

 

I'm really loving this game at the moment,

 

Also, I am quite enjoying the spitfire atm, just researched all the modules apart from the cannons,as it looks weird having cannons on a mk1!

 

The Japanese tier 3 Ki27 seem to be a really nice plane

 

the nooberang does seem nice and I've been getting quite a lot of victories with it....

 

The planes I'm keen on are the 

 

Corsair

 

FW Huckbien

 

is there a flying pancake?

 

 

 

 

Would it be incredibly noob and unwise to get the Ki 94 tier 7 prem?

 

 

 

As i may have said earlier i used to fly a lot of competitive aerobatic RC planes including many warbirds

 

if anyone needs any advice please let me know

 

Check out this old video,

 

I can out fly this guy (cough cough)

Indeed there is, it was recently nerfed as it was so OP it made people cry. Still a good plane even after the nerf.

Buy whatever plane you want, you'll get the hang of them after a short while, your money, your time, your fun.

Confirmed both lines.

 

Still is a good plane. Go for it.

 

And the most important is: enjoy. Research or buy the planes you like and find the ways to enjoy in each. There's no end goal here, nothing to really achieve or prove - those things are in an afk world. Fly your planes, do dakka-dakka and smile.

Thanks again guys 

 

Ran outta likes

 

.I'm still researching the best crew skills to equip.it's quite similar to warships captain training 

 

I think eekaboo should create some events to coax some tankers over to this game.

 

I heard unsubstantiated rumours that the games may verge into one.

 

I for one would love to strafe a wheeled vehicle or a skorp G.

 

Is there any truth in these rumours?

It will never happen. Many WoT players already rage about arty....could you imagine their response to being attacked by planes? Most would leave.

All premium planes up to T4 are lemons, except the RU LaGG-3(4) and GE Ar 197.

 

 

The XP31 (Tier 2, American) is a wonderful creature.

It's not a plane you can buy from the tech tree where he want's to spend his Gold...nor can he buy the wonderful RU T3 I-15 bis DM-2 or the special UK T5 Spitfire Vb IM, etc.

Memory is struggling on this, but I think it was a new year gift during the first year. All I know was having to just log in to get it.

I like the look of that plane, 

Hopefully it'll be on sale or in some event in the near future :honoring:

 

So, I bit the bullet and used the last of my gold to get the tier 7  Ki-94 purely based in its quirky looks.

 

Still getting the hang of the play style, those cannons seem very effective on enemy bomber formations!

You got it immediately. This, and GAA's (ground attack planes). Those are your targets with it.

 

Oh, it's even more effective on light fighters - provided you hit one with those crooked cannons :-)

I got myself a Japanese premium, only to be able to participate in the japanese leg of "march of nations". The A6M3 (exp) was both cheap and powerful. 

 

 

 

Too bad my team lost again :-(

Well played but with results like that....losing isn't so bad, at least you know you did your best.
