Well I`m a long time online wars veteran and one of my squadron`s aces.

If you ask me all it takes to become an ace like me is experience/routine.

Since I admitted I was a crappy pilot on the other thread, I might as well claim that I am a great pilot on this thread.

But when all is said and done, who really cares. I enjoy flying this sim.

I know I was a good pilot in real life. I am just not very skilled at computer manipulation. Don't play the piano very well either.

Well... define "good".

Is that good as compared to excellent or elite? And how is it gauged? Kill/death? Streaks? Points? Ability to contribute to mission wins? Pure numbers of kills?

If you compile pilot stats based on different categories, you usually get different lists of "good" pilots, although the better ones will tend to appear on multiple lists.

Thank you boxduty. But I am afraid it is true. I took piano lessons from a lady from Yorkshire named Margaret and after 6 lessons she advised me to try another instrument.

One may be good at getting kills, and better yet surviving but what if his actions mean that his friends die and or overall mission objectives are not completed.

I am trying to get better but this is where I currently sit :-(.

An ace that can only work alone is not much use against a coordinated enemy.


P.S imho anyone that can get kills but not survive 90% of the time is not "virtual ace" quality.... They wouldn't live long if their life counted on it.

Yes.
I don`t know your criteria,mine is K/D and that is 10,7/1.Aces had a minimum of 5/1 so I`m an ace,virtual ace.Ofcourse if you fit me into a plane other than a 109 I have problems cuz apart from forced to fly FW190 sometimes all I fly is 109.Allied planes I fly in generic coops and offline for relaxation.
Moreover I come from a squad that creates aces and it makes experienced ones join too because of superior teamwork and tactics.That said we wouldn`t have tactics without our fearless bomber boys.If they get everything right we can do our job.

So I depend on my experience but sometimes one has to get out of **** alone and that`s where my Me109 abilities come to save my virtual life.

In the end,I`d like to point out that I would never get so good if I never flew with squads like JG26/JG5/JG27 and JG53.They saved me *** too many times.

I can take off, shoot at stuff, and land. Sometimes I get killed, and sometimes I kill.

One things for sure. If this was RL, i'd be dead. How about you? If you can say you'd still be alive like the real aces who survived. Then i'd say you're doing pretty good.

Not a chance. And I have yet to be killed by my engine for absolutely no discernable reason what-so-ever.

You're right. This isn't like RL. It's way easier.
