    Help, my P-40 is cursed

    Mr_R rolls = aileron rolls, an almost useless maneuver in combat situations.

    There's nothing wrong with running the 209 with 3x20mm cannons.

    The Yak-15 is a sorry excuse of a tier 8 jet, compared to the late La-150. La-160 is quite nice, if not lacking in its ability to climb (it's a Russian trait apparently).

    La-15 > Yak-30, for all intents and purposes. It's never a bad idea to go up different tech trees, since the meta changes around every now and then.

    It doesn't matter how bad you are, we will still reward you handsomely for utter incompetence and let you bot your way up to tier 10. Working as intended.

    How to Turn and Burn in a Boom and Zoom metagame by petersleepy

    The radar gives you a better sense of your immediate proximity, sure, but I already have all the fancy arrows in the center of my screen. The last thing I would want is to clutter up my screen real estate to duplicate information already available to me. As a mouse user, I also have the advantage of easily accessing the free-camera for visuals on all my vectors, never mind the player indicators that tells me exactly how far away each of my targets are relative to my position. Old post incoming. (http://forum.worldofwarplanes.com/index.php?/topic/23764-control-tips/page__pid__335704#entry335704) Call me proud and arrogant, but I do not want to tacticool my HUD.

    What ia a radar and wht do I need it? I already have the godview minimap. Granted, I got used to flying before they implemented the separate radar.

    Control scheme?

    Vector mouse control master race, zero auto-leveling. It did take me over a year to adapt decently the controls, don't worry.

    XVM means nothing with such low player population, when some people already has a list of names memorized and updated for the past year and a half.

    Mouse controls... yeah, I gave up trying to fix them, especially since I lost my old files and I'm [email protected]

    Zeros were quite potent in 0.4.x.

    The problem with the 109Z is that it badly airspeed and acceleration once you hit a low energy state, and every time you BnZ you lose a significant amount of energy since its boost acceleration is quite poor and accumulates relatively high heat with low cooldown rate. You can run the 20mm to try and squeeze more energy out from the plane, but that's an act of diminishing returns. Sure the 30mm weigh your plane down (by alot), but at least you'll have a better chance at downing your target and potentially spend less time on the defensive.

    They are mounted in the wing roots, similar to the 209's guns. They fire through the prop, and thus are aptly classified as synchronized guns.

    You do realize how OP the 4x MK-103 setup was, right?
  16. Haswell

    Equipment?

    Will have to look into this further. I know it varies by each plane individually, but from what you guys are saying Brit heavies are especially prone to crew injuries. Now I have to check that against the German heavies.

    That's because the meta is currently fucked up. Expect changes.
  18. Replay: http://wotreplays.com/site/557006?secret=3b49984fd56e08a0322221113a10d392 I'm utterly baffled to how I managed 800xp for that battle. Granted, I'm a pretty bad player with little to no knowledge of firing lanes and effective scouting techniques, but in that match I opted to stay back and tried to abuse openings. I understand spotting damage, survival and tier differences contribute to earning multipliers, but why was there such a large discrepancy in earnings between me and the IS-4/WTF100 considering their damage dealt as opposed to mine? I swear, the more I try to understand the game, the more it laughs at me.

    You are assuming shwedor wouldn't randomly shoot you in the back.

    I find tanks to be more relaxing actually, because I'm not subjected to a constant demand for spatial awareness and attention there.

    Just the result of being carried by flights, and flying better-performing planes all the time. Not crazy, not by far.

    Holy shit, what a clusterfuck. For the record, WoT also has aim assist. Ever wonder why your shot goes completely offcenter and magically hit a target not centered in your reticle?

    I feel no remorse for pubbies flying in front of my guns. The star wars tracers are bright enough to spot from a mie away.
