Hi zen_monk and ziptop, please tell us when you have your result so that nitemary_gary can shuffle the tier and class for next round. Thank you.

Ziptop won, fair and square.

 

We both flew I-17 and he outflew me. :honoring::medal:

 

Hearty congratulations mate, thank you Gary for organizing this, and the winner (Deax or Zip) will get a special skin for the plane of their choosing commemorating the victory.

 

Good luck both!

It was indeed a first class show, and the first battle was a draw. Hats off to both of you, no one on this planet could have called who would win. Bravo!

Many thanks to nitemare_gary and Zen_Monk for their time and patience.

I am already now curious what tier and aircraft type nitemare_gary will come up with for our fight with Ziptop :coin:.

Nitemare_gary - please note I have no (active) aircraft above tier 8 and indeed my selection even at T8 is pretty limited. Would need advance warning for anything higher than T7 so I can make sure I'm properly prepared.

Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN!!

 

The best pilot won a decisive victory between 2 differently rigged Yak-9U's. Congrats to Deaxter_Hero for the win, I didn't get guns on him once. 

 

I went with 23mm guns and a plan to get in close and avoid being shredded on the way, Deaxter went with the longer range guns and was frighteningly effective. Must work on my evasive maneuvers.

Needless to say, there are several smouldering wrecks on a valley floor somewhere

 

Cheers to nitemare_gary and everybody else for participating. We should do this again.

Congratulation both, and a huge round of applause for Deaxter!

 

We'll PM the details and arrangements of your prize skin, Deaxter, and the final version will be posted here.

 

It was fun indeed, thank you all but mostly Gary who came up with the idea and organized all this :honoring::medal::great:

I was considering if I should take Typhoon or Yak, but greater manoeuvrability of Yak 9U combined with the long range big gun which would work against possible Boom and Zooming head on attacks of  FW 190 or J4M Senden spoke in its favour. I saw Ziptop during the week fly Typhoon (in my opinion the best T7 multirole in standard game mode) and so I was surprised when we ended up in the training room both in Yaks. I specialised Yak during last week for the tournament and that proved to be decisive factor as I maxed it out for turning. That coupled with early spotting and couple of lucky long range hits with the 40 mm decided the final outcome.

 

I would like to once again thank nitemare_gary for staging this fun event and Ziptop to be a noble opponent.

Congratulations deaxter_hero!

 

I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part for not only waiting three and a half months to finish this (sorry) but for being understanding when I didn't quite come through on some things. (namely timing) I am heartened to hear that it was enjoyed and will do this again in a few months with a few changes to the rules and the way other things are done. 

 

Thank you again 

N, Gary

 

P.S. I cant wait to see the skin zen!
