I think APartClassic has switched on SkyNet before it's working properly.

If I was SkyNet I'd go back in time and nail Apartclassic when he was just in a Bulldog!

If I could, I would go back in time and remove the rudeness that I have from my behavior. It would be lovely. And yes - it is as it is. We can't undo some things and we have to be responsible for our behavior. life....

 

 

I have to live with it and play with it and bear the consequences of my behavior while, thanks to the game, also change my behavior in real life. I am inaccessible and impossible to assimilate and that's it ... Only thank the people who endured so much in the game ..........

If I could go back in time I would take the opportunity to learn to speak and write English properly.

Bad matchmaking.  The XP-75 wasn't specialised.

GonerNL do you still believe that specced planes control the game? I've mentioned it several times - spec don't mean a thing if it is flown by an unskilled and unaware player. In this particular match you fought 7 vs 7. If you managed to cap one sector for a few seconds and got only 3 points during a 5/6 sector fight (match to 800) it means that all of you didn't have a clue what to do and were not capping sectors but just flying clueless all over the map for at least 4-5 minutes.

Unfortunately Goner, this one is simply an undeniable truth:

If you had lost 500:800 or something, only then you would have an argument for "they won because all seven of us did what we should but they had better planes".

 

But here, the quoted stands. And no amount of your speccing would change that.

Amen Zen... Amen...

Furthermore IL-10 has enough ordinance to cap first sector on his own... I mean you GonerNL.

Sure ... CIS server where my IL-10 is stock with crew in training. Easy to blame people when you don't know the conditions eh ??

Nuff said.

I don't have much experience, still have a lot to learn and only play up to tier6 but there are some factors can very much influence outcomes.

 

1. Don't play a stock airplane when you have the option to specialize. Sure, sometimes it's just a grind to the next tier and stock airplanes have to be played for X amount battles to unlock the specialized status. In those battles, understand this is the case and just suck it up. However, you are in position to specialize this aircraft but chose not to, see a specialized version on the enemy team, the fault is yours, nobody elses.

2. Don't play crappy airplanes. Sometimes it's necessary for a grind to play a crappy airplane to unlock a good one but in those moments YOU'RE the weakness in the team. Sure, there might be other weaknesses in the team but when you clicked the battle button you added one immediately, yourself, so again, have no complaints.

3. As others mentioned. Learn the game format and play to that. Generally the winning of these battles boils down to who controls the most sectors and/or strategically important sectors. So it's about understanding which sectors take priority, making sensible re-spawns if you get killed and the option to re-spawn somewhere strategically better is an option and playing aircraft that best accommodate this.

Dear GonerNL,

as I said before:

- 5 or 6 sector map (you were fighting till 800),

- you are in GAA IL10 (up tier vs VI tier),

- 2 bombs (4400 damage each) + 8 rockets (1200 damage each) total ordinance ONLY 8800 + 9600 = 18400 damage,

- lets do not forget the 2x 23mm cannons.

Even on a stock aircraft you still have 4 bombs 2100 damage each and it is more than enough to cap a sector on your own. 

You can always blame the MM but in this case all of your teammates including you were not able to cap even ONE GRAY SECTOR (90 cap points). Believe me or not it does not matter if you are in stock plane (without the rockets) and poor crew - you should be able to cap a sector. Period.

Slow as shhhh attack aircraft. A player cannot have any complaints when they lose using these or any type of slow ground huggers tbh including turn fighters that are low alt and slow in a straight line. I play airplanes that fly fast and fly high. That way I can get to all sectors fast, get to all aircraft no matter how high they can fly and also escape if I need to should some engagements go badly. Sure, I won't win turn fights but why would I try and do that when I already know my aircraft can't do that and I don't need to?

 

Often I see guys playing these slow ground huggers... they flip a sector and then they are married to it for the entire battle, can't go anywhere else without taking an age to get there. They need to kill themselves to respawn somewhere better or just stay there all battle on decent sized maps of which there are many. These "between sectors" moments are moments of inactivity so far as winning the battle goes and you are neither protecting or attacking a sector, you are doing nothing... maybe even get side-tracked if you get engaged by an enemy airplane or get drawn into attacking an enemy airplane. Meanwhile the battle is being won or lost and all you do is slowly traverse the map like an idiot. Even if you stay to defend a sector all battle. What do you do if bombers attack it? The answer is you do nothing about it because you can't. It's stupid to play airplanes like that in this game.

 

This is why I mainly play HF's and Bf 109 style fighters. Sure, I might not always need to go to a sector fast and I might not need to go attack a bomber, but at least I know I can, and the choice for me is there. Also, I will dictate the terms of an engagement with a fast and high flying aircraft, not the ground hugger. All he can do is look up at me and wait and try counter me if I do decide to drop down and attack him, but until then, there is nothing he can do about it and if I decide to leave he cannot follow me, he is too slow and if I decided to dismantle all his bomber teammates as they come into that sector, he can't do anything to stop me. So don't be that guy, play sensible aircraft. 

 

Does this mean I win all the time? lol of course not, there's always very one sided battles we can do nothing about, idiotic bots that just will not flip a very simple garrison next to the teams spawn all battle long while you fight hard and cannot leave the sector you are in, no opportunity to do so etc. but at least I don't lose because I don't have the speed to get there or I don't have the altitude to get a bomber etc.
