I suggest you find someone to wing up with each sortie - and finding a good partner will open up options to take advantage.   You don't even have to announce it, but just latch onto someone you see as being good/aggressive.
And drop the Brewster, like the Spitfire, it only feeds bad habits

I'd be willing to wing with you Poop :D

I would also agree the Brewster(and other underperforming, highly maneuverable AC) aren't really great fighters for the MA these days. Most opponents are gonna run from you until they have a considerable numerical advantage OR extend you out once they lose any kind of positional or energy advantage. You can't really blame the for the latter either as they are only using their planes strengthens relative to yours. In my experience you're more likely to find yourself more fights flying things like the P51,P47,190s. You'll have the speed to keep up with most opponents and you'll have people more willing to tango with a "less maneuverable" AC.

Would love to have Mid War back.

Need a map like Smog 8 with mid/early war only. With 4 bases on each side of the river where each field is 10 miles or less. Make it free to play.

Boom. No more Steam cryers and it would be a Lotta fun!

Since I started again I can't decide on a fighter.

Unless I'm bombing it's always in b24s for towns and tutus for ships.
