Sector Priority

Sectors have priority. Military base is priority number 1. Command center is priority 2A, and mining plant is priority 2B. Airbase is priority 3A, airstrip 3B and garrison is priority 3C. If you are in bomber 3B and 3C are reversed, so airstrip is the last priority. If you are turn base fighter, airbase on center have higher priority, and if you are in attack plane airbase on center is dead last priority. If enemy have strong team, airbase on center is also last priority; if they want to make it their little kingdom, leave them and by pass them by capping everything else. 

 

Bot quality

Bots have 3 categories:

-novice with low skill and stock planes (tier 1, 2 and 3),

-soldiers with some skills and fully upgraded planes (tier 4 and 5),

-veterans with max skills and fully upgrade planes (tier 6 and above),

so new players need to be aware that things will get tough and they will get tough sooner rather than later. So if you play fighter and in for example tier 3 you can't kill 5 plane regularly with fighter, don't bother buying tier 4. And don't forget that daily missions will drag the best players to some ungodly low tiers, and seeing the best players on the server on tier 1 or tier 4 isn't surprising. 

 

Ordinance

Whatever appartclassic is telling you, if you are new player, don't put in rockets and bombs on multi-role and heavy fighters. He is trained professional and knows how to use them, and you are not, and you don't. Ordinance will slow you down, when you can't afford to be slowed down, and you will make stupid rookie mistakes. You will help nobody if you hit the ground or if defense pick you up like pinata. 

 

Capping

If you cap with PvE group (light fighters, multi fighters and heavy fighters) you go high and go after heavy bots first. Don't attack first one, dodge hi and attack the wing-men; otherwise he will be on your tail while you attack the first one. On that altitude light bots have trouble to get up initially, so you will have time. After you kill heavy bots, go and kill light ones, and only then you can use ordinance. If you are in heavy fighter with a lot of firepower, like Beufighter, you can go head on with heavy bot. 

If you cap with bomber, in low tiers, go after high altitude AA guns first (the ones that have house shape symbol). 

If you are in attack plane be aware that ground targets are consist of cluster of armored and unarmored sections. Go into training room and figure it out plan with guns, rockets and bombs how to make sure you destroy entire GT cluster. You want to use minimal time and minimal number of rockets and bombs. Playing attack planes effectively requires planing and math. Like this sector have those ground targets that gives that much points; I have this much rockets and bombs; I need this much points to cap; so I have plan to attack this, this...GT and to cap the base. Pay attention to damaged ground targets, and finish them off.  

 

Altitude

This is reason why you should play with Me 109! With every plane except attack planes, you want to go to the up altitude zone. So little above optimal altitude. When you do that in 109 (and other high altitude fighters and heavies), you will have several key advantages:

1. Most of enemy planes can't and will not be at your altitude so you will be safe. 

2. You can target heavy fighters and open the road for friendly bombers. Bomber bots are more efficient than other bots to cap sectors. More sectors, better win chance. 

3. You can also target enemy bombers and deny enemy caps. 

4. You can pick low flying target, dive to it, shot, and go back up into higher altitude. This is boom and zoom tactic, and it is important to learn it. 

5.. You can more easily cap sectors, because you can attack heavy bots from above. 

Those are all very important stuff that you can't learn flying Spitfires. There is also one more nice advantages of that line, tier 10 is awesome in that line. Also you can learn how to use MG, cannons and big guns on this line. 

 

Bot Control

Bots are responding to some commands. If you ask them to attack sector, or defend sector, or to be your wing-man or to clear your tail. If there is free bot nearby, and it is able to help, it will help.

Heavy bots respond very well to the command to attack a bomber. I use it often ...

I can't agree, as the chance, that a low tier Multirole bot responds is still rather high. Just do it now and then when heavy is really near a bomber but didn't recognize it.
