Sorry for joining up the party a bit late! Had a lot of RL stuff to do....

 

First of all: Thank you all for taking part in the tournament and your congrats! :D

 

Also a big thank you to maxram for creating this event. Yes it was not flawless but it made the game a lot more interesting again on the community side and i think we can all agree that we learned a lot from the misstakes done here (for instance that this API Token is a son of a b****). So:

 

THANK YOU MAX!!!!

 

At this point i want to apologize myself for using just one aircraft. I am personaly not a fan of spamming just one aircraft. Flying my JL-1A-37 was fun, but after some time its just getting exhausting to do the same thing over and over again. Also it didnt quite hit the objective of the tournament by showing that i am an "all-round ace" rather than just showing my ace skills. But as you guys discussed it earlier that was the best strategy to go so i had to do this do secure the win. If we do a new tournament supporting variety more effective you can count on me to change things up showing my worthiness of my now earned "all-round ace" title as well as defending it of course - good luck for all of you who try. :playing:

 

So at this point i want to give a special thanks to dirty_magic who proved that if you play smart you can still get a lot of boni by variety (even though it was the riskier way to go) showing that he is a true "all-round ace". Good job on your well deserved second place! Cant wait to challenge you next time! ;)

 

Comming to angel: i can feel your frustration mate. I would be very pissed too if i was in your position. But as i told you on the wowp Discord: I didnt play the last "official" day to its fullest. I left early because i was very exhausted at this day and i knew there were two follow up "bonus" days. We were very close appart (not considering the bonus) so if i played the day to its fullest (which i would if there werent two more bonus days) you would never have been on the number 1 spot to begin with. If you check my point score on that particular day you will see that this statement is right. About our little agreement: I hope i could show you that you can trust people and maybe try to be a bit more friendly to them. Its a game after all and the main goal of playing games is to have fun. So please relax a bit more in the future (especially now as the tournament is over) and dont take everything as an personal attack. Getting killed is just part of the game. Oh and before i forget: now as the tournament is over our little agreement expires as there is no more preasure anyways. If you read my earlier post you should know by now how i pick my targets and what you should expect ;)

 

Finally i want to thank everyone once again and i cant wait to do a follow up tournament (with tier 10 pls!?). I had plenty of fun myself and i hope you guys enjoyed it as much as i did.

 

See you on the battlefields - Good hunting! :izmena:

Just some "final words" from me as well - I did not take the tournament very serious in that way that I am no good enough player to get a place on the top. However, I wanted to show my participation and show that the community appreciates such things.

My personal "dream" of such a tournament would be - set aside that some stuff is unrealistic or hard to implement at best:

 

1) Same plane for all participants. Further on just a 100% pilot and a maxed out plane with no consumables/equipment (or same skill pilot and same consumables/equipment for all, however I'm still preferring the 1st option). Hard to guarantee, though, as "cheating" would be easy.

2) As already mentioned, different classes, one class a day, still all with the same plane per day.

3) As a special treat it would be cool if WG could bring into the hangars such a "plane of the day" without telling beforehand which plane or tier it will be. This way, as unrealistic it is, all pilots would be challenged to prove that they are real aces with whatever comes along their way, and it would be a real challenge.

 

As said, it is unrealistic dreaming and would challenge WG to provide stuff which would be very time consuming to prepare, but perhaps some easier to implement ideas may evolve from this?

 

Another idea for a tournament could be to set challenges such like any number of medals with any given class and tier, if the API is able to read this from the server. However this will not solve the "flying my best plane only" problem, should this be a problem. It might get eased out but different class and tier conditions.

Hey Taiho, 

 

I understand the point with the same plane.
But please explain to me how you or someone else comes up with the idea to pre-author someone regarding pilot consumables and accessories?
Should I spend money or token? Just because you don't have your plane on the same level as me?

all of this is called personal individuality. Maybe this says nothing to many but I don't have the need to be a leming like everyone else.

and in the end only miming cry about skill points and consumables and Moduls.

@chilli: The point is clear.

As far as i understood some pilots spam the same plane again and again to win this contest.

Next time it should be like:

Tonight we fly Fighters, or even more precise, tonight we fly Fighter Tier 5 Me109E

Next day, lets say we fly Groundattacker Tier 7, IL-10 and so on.

If it is a suprise to everyone what plane and class and tier comes next it will be harder to prepare with consumables and stuff. (which should be of course allowed)

 

So everyone is forced to show his skills in every airplane class

There is an art to flying, or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. ... Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, that presents the difficulties (Douglas Adams - Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy)

i agree with you @OH but he talk from rules about pilots skills(how many points...) and equipment and Spezi moduls (level usw.)

a rule about witch aircraft must be used is absolute okay , but a rule who told us witch plane must be used or witch consumable ites must be used sounds ans smells like NS aera . 

and quite honestly in my opinion only people come up with such an idea who constantly fail the reason for their own failure elsewhere.

Sorry Chilli, but any comparison with NS is tasteless to say least and way below your level. Even you should be able to make your points in a respective way.

 

My point - to make it short - was to present a situation where all pilots go into a tournament with exactly the same preconditions to avoid any whining about "others having better equipment etc". If this is not wished, skip it, no problem for me. Personally I have no expectationas to any tournament, as I simply am not good enough to seriously compete with other pilots, even with such "unrealistic preconditions" - my point was more meant to present something to discuss and exclude any possible whining beforehand. The only thing I really would enjoy is possibly not knowing about which plane will be next ...

 

To assume I do this as a person "who constantly fail the reason for their own failure elsewhere" is just a bad prejudice (maybe you could ask __MATT about me as a person) ... sad thing here is that you seem to be unable to just tell "no, not my cup of tea because..." instead of insulting others. Leaves no good impression about you, sad to say.

that was not a personal attack if you feel it as someone. 

only my opinion.

and i told you only the result of your rules. because you talk only from wishes and dont think that to the end. 

if guys must change there personal settings for fullfile the event rules it need gold or token. 

i would not spend tokens or gold to change my settings for fun. spezialy when i must spent 2x gold or token to change the settings back.

and if you have more than 1 round the bill will be bigger and bigger . 

But if you spend me the gold for change my equipments on every event day 2 times for getting your wishes than i would do it. 

and under the line its not my fail that you dont have good pilots, and not enougth credits or mechanikal parts to upgrate items. 

and that you know it , at the 1 day were i play in that event i played every round a other plane and level. used all 5 types too . 

 

i understand the fairness wish but , if i must change for example a T8. 2x changing settings is 30 Token or 1500 gold if you must buy them. 

man wg work not enougth for the community and the game that i would pay that price for 1 round.

It was a personal attack and an insult (see the NS thing) - the question remains why you only are capable to talk normally and intelligent when you are faced with being told so. Why not already at first hand???

And what is even more lousy by you is that you do not even think about for example saying something like "sorry, bad choice of words, let's start again in normal tone" - no, you still feel you have the (god given?) right to do so. By the way, you have not. Perhaps learning to respect other person's opinions would be a good start. You don't have to like those ideas, only the discussion should be with respect (seems an uncommon word in the days of internet - maybe another dream by me?).

 

As I mentioned more than once in my post my "idea" is a dream of something more or less not possible with the intention of starting a discussion. I did not tell that anyone has to pay for anything! For example if WG would pack a plane into the hangar for the tournament only, there would no problem to do the same with a pilot. I know and understand that WG will not do so. There was not even a thought that players will be forced to pay for anything, I would not wish to change my plane and pilot settings as well for just a tournament - perhaps you should more read the words than interprete them?

 

For me the question is what - if desired - can be accomplished for example by the community and/or by WG? So to say, perhaps WG could offer anything like a temporary plane? Unlikely, but perhaps worth to ask? Don't know - daydreams, as told.

@Taiho53:
I'm completly on your side.
When I read what this man is doing here in the English forum, too and how he deals 
with civilized forum authors, I think it was a good decision not to be under his 
leadership any longer.
He is only a good WoWp-player but not a pleasant person. 
Often he tells me, he is not looking for friendships when he gambles. Well - if he loves 
to portray the bad man in this forum, it is his choice. It's not my way.

You have not yet recognized this narcissistic personality. He is someone who sees kindness as a loser, he also loves to manipulate you. Be careful when discussing something with him, he is rude and can even make fun of your religious values. He is not someone who can be understood by speaking well. Even though he is right in his thought, you should communicate by talking rough and slang, I do not expect anyone who plays 5 hours a day to communicate properly.

Did you think about what you say here ??? :P

Wg is not able to do anything .............. since 2.0 a bug exist were when you quit the waiting on a battle lobby your plane goes without you in the game .

wg is not able to fix that bug. there are so many fails from wg and you dream about such things man you are funny or a dreamer . 

so please when we start talk about such things let is talk about able things and not dreams . 

the likelihood that one of us will win the lottery is higher than the likelihood that competent people will start to work at wg and something will change their behavior.

 

as next i say that sounds and smell like ns aera nothing more . it calls not that you are a nazi or something . maybe you should not bring your own mental feelings in a discusion. and take words as it is and not as personal attack .

trust me if i would attack you , i would do it direkt . with personal speaking to you .

small example . 

YOU are a dreamer , that was personal !!

You have a funny idea but you dont think them to the end , noooo you dream about unrealistik works from Wg .  also personal.

i am nothing spezial. 

Your perspective and understanding of the game and skill is only be very limited. 

because you pay attention to feelings and always try to make excuses why you can't do something like others.

most guys here think its something spezial when they are here. No one cares , nothing change when you/also me are not there.

in my rl nothing change with or without you , and thats guilty for everyone. 

and yea i dont search for friens in a game. if i switch off my game you no longer exist in my rl.

friendships develop, only failures and people who need it look for it in a game.

 And honestly, I do not need guys for friends who are followers, or are unable to form their own opinion.
Or have fear to say something that others might not like.

and finally @Chapi 

 

if adults are chatting you should be quiet. Furthermore, you can give yourself worthless assumptions and speculations. In my stream history you can see exactly how long I play every day. reading is because from sunday to thursday i play an average of 2.5 hours a day. So before you talk weak, don't say anything. get in the car and continue delivering kebabs.

ohhh now i lowered myself to your level and made assumptions about your job.
