I am going to step up to the soapbox and say it..........

I miss the rolling plane set from my WarBirds days, it made me learn a lot of planes not just a few hot rods.

CAVALRY

I dont think this is an answer, but I do belive that something has to change.


And you can do it voluntarily, too!

- oldman

Yes you can and put yourself at a disadvantage every flight. You have to go back more than 6 months to find a tour where the top six in kills changes,

P51
Spit16
190D9
Yak3
F4U-1A
Nik

All speed demons and pickers. Well the Nik isnt as fast but its a great picker with a LOT of cannons.

Even if the fighter perks were cleared to zero every new tour it would take just an hour or so of the first day to earn a Tempest. We all play the same game and we all have the same options available to us.

A Tempest is in the 40 perk range. For an average player it would take weeks to get enough perks to fly one. Even you in your pony would only earn a couple perks per flight. Your talking 30-40 successful  flights to earn enough.

Rumor has it there's still an AvA arena and the staff will still occasionally set things up for immersion.  :D :cheers:

Ah yes, the old "nothing is wrong, its you the player/complainer that is the issue." Sure the solution is to leave a lightly populated arena to an empty arena to get to fly mid-war planes competitively.  :rolleyes:

What the answer is, I dont know, but as it is now, why not change the name of the game to "Fly the uber rides of WWII"

As a vet, why would you not want to do that?

As a newbi why would you bother to stay under that onslought?

I fly what I want when I want, it doesnt matter to me, but Im here for the long haul, have been hooked for a long time. Newbies need all the help they can get to get them hook and sticking with the game.

Why wouldnt you want to do something to help KEEP new players in the game?

Face it.... people depend on the planes now so they do not have to really fly much. At least many do.

Noobs should have easy access to easy planes.  So perking the late war super planes is hurtful to noobs (and who wants that?).  My suggestion was that vets, as a rule, should voluntarily fly harder and/or worse-performing planes - self-handicapping, in effect.

I have an alternative suggestion. Every time a whine or complaint is posted to the BBS the poster should be charged 500 perks in all categories.

I predict this will make the BBS a much happier place overnight!

Sad last night (Friday)

Nothing but spit16, 190d, temps and stangs

Tricky but managed 7 scalps in 3 sorties in a 109f4

Complaining and bragging at the same time always seemed bi-polar to me.  :old:

Not bragging just stating what is possible

When vet pilots are all in uber planes what else do you think anyone else will be in?

Tempest is fine where it is at.  The Yak-3 has needed an ENY adjust for quite a while.  Say 8-10 range based on usage.

With its current damage model The Yak-3 deserves a perk, if that do-do ever gets fixed, an ENY of 10 would be ok.
My ammo last for 6 Lancasters, or one Yak3.

The Temp price is pretty low, I was at the point where I could fly it the entire month and still come out positive on perks. 
I too would like to see the Yak-3 with a 5 eny, and half of the planes with some perk price. 
Also the T-34/85 needs to be double its perk price.  No variety in the tank game.

  play smarter..  the temp has many faults.. and so does the yak 3.. learn them and use your planes advantages . or go back to a game.. like playstation puts out..  and..   oh here is a thought,get a wing man and use real tactics..   and get alt.. 15,000  only takes a few min and if  cruising if not in to frail and difficult to dive of kite gain another 500-1000 fpm while at speed..
