    It's definitely a work in progress. Heck, in a year I'll be playing something else anyways.

    So today I got bored and decided to see if I can get my Su2 to over 10kms high. It did happen, but around 7000kms high the plane was uncontrollable and would just spin whenever i tired to turn or roll. At around 9500kms it would only climb at around 10m/s and if I tried to climb any faster I would just go into a nose dive, and loose about 300 meters of altitude. Once I reached 10kms it was impossible to bomb anything accurately (it was just a circle with a smudge of crosshairs for the bombs), and your plane would have an spasm whenever you touched the flaps. Once I had enough of this I decided to dive straight down, and reached 1100km/h then both my wings snapped off, as well as my tail and I then smashed into the ground. I was taking screenshots during this, but i was with the f12 key which has no UI displayed so it really means nothing. I think I'm going to try to reach the ceiling of all the planes I own

    I just got 100,000 silver lions when I logged in for playing for one month, which means a few of you will be getting that reward soon.

    Yep, one/two/three weeks and one month of playing are rewarded with lions.
    Also you can try to play various missions unlocked, you can have some lions too from them (small amount but it doesn't hurt).

    I'm playing this game specially for Bf 109 and Spitfire. Those are my dream planes from WWII.
    Yesterday I've bought Spitfire MK IX and my third game in it give me this. :respect:

    [​IMG]

    This is my best game ever since I've started to play WT. 41 minutes of tense gameplay.
    I'm a rookie pilot but oh boy I felt so good after this battle.

    Ah and lately I'm playing only HB. It's something different. And in a good way.
    Yes maybe it looks boring that every time you must gain altitude for 5 minutes or so and when you're empty of ammo you should go back and refill/repair (5 minutes back then another 5 minutes to the battle) but HB teach me a lot about situation awareness, when to engage/disengage, when/where to shoot and I like that.

    Unfortunately I don't know good evasive manoeuvres but hey good pilots needs some rookies like me as a prey. :D

    oohhhh nice the studio behind this is Gaijin Entertainement

    the one behing X-blade(Crossblade) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-Blades
    not everyone liked it but it was a little pearl ... damn why did i sold my copy >.<

    well seems to be Pay 2 win and they are over their head with prices http://warthunder.com/en/store/addons/ for me Premium account means pay 2 win (like SWTOR wich is nearly unplayable without abonnement after the F2P transition, or permanent unlock)

    its like Eve Online for the plane ? if you loose them you loose them definitively?

    well it looks nice and all, i might give a try and see what its really before making another opinion

    It's not a P2W model.

    Even if you buy the F190 D13 package you only have an advantage in so much as not having to level to rank 13. The Plane is comparable to the F190 D12 some would even say a little lacking. Added to that the ammo ect is all the same between the planes. Your not actually paying to win. Your paying to skip low tier.

    I've never paid for premium. And probably never will. If your struggling for cash play Tier 0-1 and grind in the I15 and Chak.

    Once you get to rank 6 you should be thinking about HB anyway. It's not economic to be cycling 6 4Klion rep planes. That's a potential 24K loss if your not making kills. A single HB plane is going to coast half of that at the same rank and getting a kill will make sure you break even.

    I've actually just built a Track IR for myself for this game it makes it so much easier to play!

    At last yesterday my dream come true. I have my garage full of Spits for Brits and full of Bf (and one Fw) for Germans.

    Now I don't have anything in my mind but to enjoy the game in Historical Battles on standard account. :toast:

    I will agree with Historical being the place to play. I just had my first successful mission, only shot down one plane and got a single patrol boat and the payoff was pretty substantial.

    Yep, credit wise HB is Mecca, we all should play there. :D

    If you play HB with a Premium plane on Premium account and you shot down one-two planes and some ground targets you should make a lot of credits.
    I'm fine even on standard account. I have a simple strategy to play HB on standard account: I'm playing with all planes from all nations until I broke every plane. Usually it takes me at least 5 hours to do that lol. :D
    Then I let them to autorepair in garage until next day. Rinse and repeat.
    This way I have a lot of fun (playing with all kind of planes is fun for me) and at the end of the day I have a positive balance too (not too much because is standard account and I'm not a good pilot but is positive at least).

    The only problem (for me) with HB is that sometimes MM is funny. I've had games with 5 humans and 4 bots, I've had games with Dora spam when I'm in my Spit II, I've had games when half of team quit in the beginning but also I've had games well balanced and with team full of humans. Also sometimes I'm waiting 5 minutes or so to enter a battle but I'm surfing the net meantime.
    I'm playing Tier 6-9 (with some exceptions at Tier 10/11) and bottom line HB is the perfect place for me now.

    This is how I play WT for two weeks or so and I'm happy. I don't have anything to grind and I'm just enjoying the game.

    Righto. I just made some more HB bank playing with Taco. Three plane kills (some luck) and a few ground targets netted 49000 lions. It definitely adds to the tension of the game being that when you get shot down you are finished.

    A small tip for those who want to buy stuff for WT (Golden Eagles, packs, whatever). Buy it directly from warthunder.ru. Why? Because is roughly 30% cheaper. Yes.

    I've tried yesterday for my curiosity. I've login with my mail/pass on .ru site and order a Typhoon pack which cost 599 rubles (that's roughly 14€). On .com site same pack is 20€.
    Shopping went fine as you see

    [​IMG]

    So my last purchase fom .com site was 2500 GE for 14€ and now from .ru site I have for the same money 2000 GE, 2 weeks of Premium and a Premium plane. :twitch:

    And speaking about Premium plane/account/HB this was my best game ever in WT. Premium Typhoon at his 10th battle in a human team

    What can I say? I love quad Hispano's on a Premium plane on Premium account in Historical battles. :rockout:

    A friend of mine was in the enemy team. Me in my A5 and him in it's Spit XVI.
    This is how the head-on with him ends.

    Ah, and I really liked the special from this weekend. A lot of popular planes discounted and a nice boost to credits on premium accounts. Were 2 happy days for me. :)
