Been playing online for a couple of days now. And the Geographys changed. Servers seem to be mostly blued-sided when once it was Red. Gone are the numerous Hurricanes and Yaks, now I see teams of Fockes Wolves and 109s! Even Stukas! Funny, eh.

Well, I`m staying with my I16s, LA5s and Hurris.

So easy to tell the noobs.

It is an interesting trend... interesting to see the shift in dynamics as each plane is altered.

As for me, I still love my LA7. To some this makes me a noob... but I'm still a successful noob. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well it amazes me to see the swing to Axis. "Can`t handle Hurris! I`ll just go Bf109!" Talk about turncoats!

I didn't think they allowed I~16 into server (well maybe 1945 server). /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif Is it OK now?

Is it ok now? IS IT OK NOW? Man no-ones flying anything red much anymore! Although, curiously someone banned all LA5s to 7s cos he felt it was too good?! People and their personal worlds...

Anyway, it`s all Blues, 109s, FWs etc... I only ever flew Blue to even up. Guess I won`t need to worry about that now. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Yes, but Yak3 and La7 are still noob planes and overmodeled. Both turn in 16 sec instead of 18.5 (sustained at 300kmh).

I noticed this shift too. I find myself flying P-47's more than I fly my Fw 190A's /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif .

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.

Yeah same here too. Been seeing a lot more 190's then I use too. I hadn't played for almost a month till the patch came out and I thought it was a completely different game then what I remembered.

Besides 109 were the best planes on the Eastern Front, so until the room is not filled with then something is wrong with the FM. I agree that energy fighting is not really noob friendly but after a short period everbody masters it.

In all honesty, Fw190A variants are overmodelled in turn performance too (from 23 to 21 sec).

Have you tested them at constant speed and altitude, while flying with 100% fuel and full ammunition ?

As a result fighting styles HAVE changed. Much more B&Z ing. Much more planes hitting then just running away without a fight. Now Red really needs to use team work to take down some of these guys. This aspect is not necessarily a bad thing though...

Red needs more Cooperation now to win...

I have difficulty to understand what you are saying Huckebein...since as you mention in your previous mail
- Yes, but Yak3 and La7 are still noob planes and overmodeled. Both turn in 16 sec instead of 18.5 (sustained at 300kmh).

So flying in a Yak3 and LA7 you are turning at 16sec compared to 21 on a FW190 !!!!???

I a missing the meaning of this discussion

This is all too funny. FB is getting lame.

I'll be flying my A-10 and F-15 in Lock-On. You can fly anything you want. I'm not changing.

Sure, full fuel and ammo, closed radiator.
Fw190A9 at 340kmh IAS, FW190A5 at 310kmh IAS both complete the turn in 21 sec. For comparison Dora at 340 kmh completes the turn in 22 sec. Tested just above the ground, in order to keep the turn strictly horizontal.

I Noticed that many have been complainig about the ME262. That after the patch it was no longer any good. I Love the new flight model. Seems to be more stable when landing. You still have to come in low and far out on the approach to try to lose speed. The complaints about speed are correct. The plane no longer is a rocket, but I am finding it more fun easy to fly. Mabey I just over looked the plane before.

Coming in "low" for a landing is not realistic. Try it in a real airplane and we'll see your scraps on the news. Try bleeding your speed off first, then maintain a 3% glide slope on approach.
