"So when Diogenes perceived that he was greatly excited and quite keyed up in mind with expectancy, he toyed with him and pulled him about in the hope that somehow he might be moved from his pride and thirst for glory and be able to sober up a little. For he noticed that at one time he was delighted, and at another grieved at the same thing, and that his soul was as unsettled as the weather at the solstices when both rain and sunshine come from the very same source."

(Dio Chrysostom "Discourse" 4.77-78)

I'm with Mons - very experienced but not in RL!


Maybe the tiltle should have asked if we were RL pilots?

Voted 'yes' very experienced in IL2 and FB, still not seeming to get any better in the last 6 months or so though, and my sniper ability with the big Yak cannons has gone right out of the window, i blame Stalin.

Fairly experienced in real life too, many hours in Chipmunks, Tigermoths, Austers and a few hours in Cessnas too. Done my PPL many times over in hours terms but have'nt got it officially yet. Be racking up some Harvard hours soon and Spitfire hours next year, I'll post some screens then. :-)

How do you know if you are an experianced pilot.
For that matter when does a Noob become a None-Noob.
is it down to time on off-line, time on-line or how many kills you get?

Experience pilot in terms of playing the game yes.

I'd say you slowly become a veteran or experienced pilot when you get to the point where you can anticipate the movements of your aircraft, you don't stall out every time you enter into a fight, you feel confident in managing your aircrafts energy, and you know most of the tricks to get your aircraft to use the best possible performance available.

Its not necessarily kill based. A good pilot doesn't have to score massive numbers of kills...he just has to fly and fight well. Presumably coming home from as many incidents of combat as possible. Co-ops are better for this than dogfights...landing in a dogfight is a luxury sometimes http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Well said and I might add that a skilled pilot has confidence his abilities can carry him through most situations he will encounter.

I guess you've got IL2FB in mind, so:

Yes, experienced enough, to see the difference between an ace and somebody who calls himself an ace - on the other hand, that doesn't need too much experience. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

voted no... never play online... only has knowledge to play Hurricanes and Bf109's... play this game for 2 years http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif... on full real ( or maybe I'm wrong) it's hard to fly plane in formation (offline) not to mention that you have to spot enemy A/C... very tough... anyone playing 'realistic' offline? Campaign maybe?
