Re: Dawgfight

Sorry but the opponent is weak. Mustang is far more advanced plane.

Very good kill at the end! Nice video with nice music. And good server message at 02:25, many people here could learn from it. Bud, was that your server? smile

Bro, this game is old. I think the best US pilots have long retired.

Re: Dawgfight

...

I played once in the night against one ace.  I had a very good concentration there and could beat him twice on AX in Bocage, but... with 45+ people and inmiddle of normal Bocage game and only because i kept open my eyes specially on him in the air.

He shot me down 4-5 times, and me him twice. After the second time he said: "You and me are the only two people here, who know how to play this game", ... i was proud like a little kid big_smile

My two shotdowns were also accompanied by luck. It went allways very fast, and this was also my only chance. If i wouldn't had shot him down, i would have been dead between 10 seconds or so and i was in Mustang. His reaction and overview was incredible.

I was writing this here in the forum that night. Must be 2-3 years since.

He died three, (perhaps 4) times in this game. Twice by me, the rest by friendly fire and his kills were somehow 60-80.

Re: Dawgfight

I dont like to put Zero against Mustangs in a server. I think that is one of the reasons that server dried up.

Anyway, i wouldnt say there is better or worse pilots now, you get to a certain level and thats all you can do. Some guys just have really good "3D-sence" and know exactly how they are oriented and how to best manouver to get to the enemy (im not one of those).

Nice video and use of cameras, Vertigo. Though I think your opponent in the mustang is some levels below you in skills smile

Thx for enjoying the video, but I'd have to disagree with evaluating skills on one particular fight.
That was actually our third fight of the map.  He was a bit more aggressive on the first one, and
we crashed on the second.  Both of those fights weren't long enough to fit the song tho.

First fight:

In my mind, he & I have equal skills.  But in that third fight, my mindset changed and it
felt like the awareness increased, where as he may have had a wife nagging his ear.

@bud - agree with that "3d-sense"  (1d for me)

The ego scene has definitely increased comparing to the older days. How do you define a good pilot nowadays? The communication between the pilots and the ground was no doubt more dedicated in the past comparing to today. That comes with improved coordination and map control which is what a team needs big_smile  But the pure dogfighting  scene has definitely increased I assume big_smile

Good job with the video Vertigo!
