Hi Guys

I have a habit of charging head first straight into any and every dogfight i can see. Is that style of flying effective? Or would a slower more cautious approch to dogfights be more effective?

Is the La7 a good plane for rushing in??
How about a Yak or Mig??

I find a Huricane is a bit slow and i easily get out paced, unless i am playing against slower planes.

Thanks

Dogfighting is an art. Its mostly the pilots skills and its up to him to evaluate what plane he is up aginst in order to fight a particular way.

Theres more to it than just rushing in. It depends on what planes are involved, if I know who the other pilot is, how he flies, altitudes etc etc etc. I fly to live...I think before I fight.


Be patiant grasshopper....when you can grab this pebble from my hand....you will be ready!

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif fastest way to die is to rush in but its fun from time to time how many you get with you until its over. My best yet was 7 or so while beeing totaly outnumbered and alone. As general rule 2 enemy planes are more dangerus than 7 or 8 they interfere each other . Mostly they try to cut each other out of shooting position http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif and have trouble to coordinate. When you see they fly disciplined in groups of 2 you are in big trouble http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

But you will die many times until you experience this fully http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It is a quick way to learn, and a quick way to die http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think some players go to the thinking aspect too quick believing thay wont get into a bad position by using their brains.

Imo you need to be able to knifefight effectively before you move on in this game.

Have you ever played billiards? The best players plan their shots so that not only do the right balls go into the pockets, but the cue ball ends up in perfect position for the next shot

Air combat is like that, only in three dimensions, and you are the cue ball. Diving is and twisting and turning is fun, but it's hard to keep track of where everybody else is, or more important, where they are going to be. Eventually, in that kind of situation, you will set yourself up as the perfect target for someone else that you didn't keep track of.

Far better to be selective, hit and get out to reassess tha situation, decide whether it's worth the risk to go basck in, and work with a reliable partner.

Some people are in it for the thrill of competition; most, though, find winning consistantly to be the biggest thrill of them all.

cheers
