Okay so guess what?
In 2 days I was on a roll with my La-7 x3 (The La with the 3 machine guns) Ive managed to kill 2 me262's, 6 stukas, and 5 fw190A-8's

Now that not bad for 13 kills in 2 days http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blush.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif

And also a quick question , in USSR how many kills do you need to be an Ace?

Exactly 4 7/8 kills.

You HAVE to hit that mark.
Try too hard, skip to 5 and they'll only laugh at you and call you a noob.

Oh, so you're a noob then? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif

I bet he could get 4 7/8 kills easy.

My grandma got 5 kills in one mission flying the Blenheim (She wanted to give those Dora's and 262's a fair chance!)

Did you have easy settings with unlimited ammo, invulnerable and your enemy was a rookie with no ammo waiting to take off from an airbase? In that case... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

The La-7 x3 actually has three 20mm cannon. Pretty powerful armament for that plane.

How many missions was that? And, what were your difficulty settings at? The only reason I ask is that kills rack up offline unless you are flying full realistic settings.

5 kills for ace status in the USSR, IIRC.

Did you take them from behind, or from face to face with the sun from the front as a man ?

All that matters is that you feel proud of yourself....Who cares what others think right?

Now if you would only trade in your LA-7 for an FW-190 D9 you would be flying in style! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Guess I gotta be the party-pooper.

This all sounds mightily impressive except for one thing...

How did you play?

Icons on?
Realistic engine management?
Hud on/off?
AI difficulty level?
Map icons on/off?
Wonder woman View or Cockpit on?
etc...


See what I`m saying? can`t get impressed until I know more.

One thing I do know is that on the more realistic difficulty settings campaign reslults tend to be much closer to the real thing, ie 3-4 kills after 2 days if you do really well.

What Seafire is asking is if you played it like an arcade game (Blazing Angels anyone?), or flew it like a simulation.
There's nothing wrong with playing it like an arcade game, it is just that many people in here fly on full realistic settings, that is to say all the settings are turned on to make it as difficult as possible.
Flying with icons on, unlimited ammo and such, really doesn't qualify for much bragging rights on this forum these days.
I must say that we see many more younger players than we ever have before, so perhaps posts like this will be more commonplace.
For those giving him a hard time, remember that he bought the game and in some small way helps keep our little niche market alive.
