Hi guys....don't want to start a heated debate; but I was wondering who some of the "old hands" at online play are....Basically I want to know who to watch out for at War Clouds and other servers!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

i personally watch out for players such as exos, or goodknight, when im flying blue on warclouds. the host sparx, can be sneaky to.

if your going to be flying red on warclouds, you better watch out for the jv44 guys such as sikira, rall, or heinzbar.
if your flying a spit be especially careful of sikira, he has a real bad attitude when it comes to spits. lol.
zen, and moses are others you better be real careful around.

its late so i might of forgot a couple, my apologys.

12-14-2004, 03:10 AM
yup, JV44 guys are good, and they fly together quite often... even you got one of them, better watch out immediately, as his teammate will surely be around and try to have your payback http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

For some reason, chance or on purpose I don't know.... when I fly on F16_Dedicated I end up beeing shot down (when flying RED) 2-3 times per mission by LLv34_Stafroty. Don't know his overall skill but this guy can certainly bounce you.. showing up from nowhere.

I would Look Out for RayBanJockey he is the ace of aces http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

GG and f16 is frequented with "old hands"
Some have specialised on few ac for years and others with mixed planesets.
I think many years of flying generally enables vast tactical skills and its on many occasions possible to recognize an "old hand" by the way he counters your moves.
The old hands in the superior planes are ofcourse the most dangerous and the ones to look out for, although an expert in an inferior fighter or bomber can be surprizingly deadly.

Some of the "old hands" I enjoy to escape from
-The "TgD" boys, Thunderbolt, Thrud and Lunix to mention a few of them.

-I have lost count of the times I have had Greenwidth on my tail and I have been lucky to escape into clouds in the last seconds.

-Jg something steven (sory dont remember) can be pretty scary.

-Goodknight...he he... well I always take an extra look behind.

-F19_orheim Is deadly in the bi-planes. Saw him shoot down three bf109's in a few minutes in a chaika once.......I'm glad he is on my team most of the time.


A funny thing with "old hands" is that they may be pretty average-crappy when switching planes.
A kind of blessing. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

watch out for the JMFT, they can be realy scary when flying TBolts http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
coming down from nowhere and leave you badly beaten in secends.

Generally watch out for squads flying together on one side, if you run in one of them u usually have the rest of the team behind you in a few secends...

12-14-2004, 06:25 AM
to be honest. =FB=Viks without doubt http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Still remember how he got about 90 kills in Mig-3 back in VEF2 in Moscow map in about 30-40 missions.. and he he was won many tournaments he has participated in http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

if you read me Viks, im your number #1 fan http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

12-14-2004, 09:01 AM
Viks is possibly the deadlyest FB/AEP player, I havn't seen him in PF yet though and even if he does play PF, I doubt he would be caught dead in a server with icons on like GG. If you limit yourself to GG then there are an aweful lot of really good players you will never see. That being said, watch out for Rall there. I've flown with him a fair number of times and I assure you he is one of the best Fw-190 pilots around. I'm an old timer here too but I am out of practice due to a 6 month break that I didn't end until a couple weeks ago when I finally got around to buying PF (I waited for first patch). Give me a couple more weeks to get back to uberace status http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif.

Other guys to watch out for in general are: Jimmy Giro (any fighter), Recon (mostly allied stuff), Skygaurd (P-39/63), Hunde (Fw-190) and Goodknight (Bf-109).

12-14-2004, 09:08 AM
All the names mentions so far are good pilots.

Just to add to the list, I remember a couple weeks ago getting my butt thoroughly handed to me by Leadspitter in an A9. In a server of about 40 pilots it seemed like he was the only pilot I would run into.

The VFC boys are good too.

There are sooo many good pilots out there and I'm having a brain fart trying to think of their names.

I have run into JV44Rall once last week. I was at a very favorite position when I push through my attack, and in two BnZ and one tight turn I was able to smoke his engine... but to watch his evasive move I must say he is on a league of his own, if I was not in such a good position I won't even stand a chance touching him.

But just before I moved in for the killing blow, he zoomed up with his limited energy.... I thought, "what the hack?", but I committed anyway.... At the moment I pressed my trigger, I heard someone's engine from behind... and there came another guy from JV44, right on my six!! I tried to dive immediately, but it was too close and too late... one shot, pilot death...

we had a good comm dialogue after that encounter, they are good pilots, and sportsmen nonetheless.

12-14-2004, 10:44 AM
Lot's of good ones out there...

Though I find Exos is a good one - kills me non-stop the creep. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Always loitering around way up, then screams down for the kill.

I think Exos is Greek for "Mustang death from above" or something. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I am the best in the Mustang, no question. And as the Mustang is the best aircraft in the game, that would put me in a very good position.

I'm VERY surprised =AFJ=GoodKnight (something like that) hasn't responded to this post yet. He's always boasting about how good he is (...and he...is). Recently i saw him quote himself on hyperlobby.

12-17-2004, 12:26 AM
FlyingFinn is pretty handy in ANY 190 model.

Whats scary is ive seen him with over 1000 pts on UKDEDICATED with his gunstat at over 30% A to A accuracy. The man is a sniper.

Some hints. His current callsign has "Bucket" in the title and he starts threads just like these in order to get a post just like yours.

best I seen in 1v1 is afj goodknight, =fb=vikks =fb= storm, and jimmy giro in same plane vs same plane.

I hate to say it but the best pilot i seen is goodknight hes the ace of aces you know in all aircraft types and thats a rare thing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Perhaps it is because he is in a German squad now? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

12-17-2004, 04:28 AM
i think your confusing me with someone else leadspitter.

ive never even flown a yak3, even off line. same with i153, i don't even know what it looks like. im the guy who was always flying the ta152, back when it was a real dog. not just the mutt it is now.

i don't even think i had this game back in version 1.2. if i did, i know for a fact it wasn't under this name, which is fairly recent.

i fly the d9 mostly, because i like fw's and the a9 is a flying brick this patch. i'm also in the g10 alot lately, oh wait i forgot, you think all 09s are uber.

as for flying the p51, i refrained from flying it until they toned down its low speed turning.
today was actually the 1st time in along time i flew it. if i might remind you i was flying allied today at your suggestion. and the 1st plane i took was the p39, is that uber also?

jeez,, you follow a guys suggestion to fly allied. then he comes in here and attacks your plane choice.

i am in the JV44 squad now, so yes i do fly german mostly.

oh yeah, ive never flown the la7 online, that i can remember. how can you be a online uber plane fan and not fly the la7. lol.

12-17-2004, 04:35 AM
My votes go to TX_Squadron and JG2001, because they all team up with other players, even though they're not in their squads. That's what makes good pilots IMHO.

12-17-2004, 04:41 AM
EY, being a regular Focke Wulf pilot on WC WF and often flying with the JV44 guys(Awesome pilots btw, and really cool ppl all of them), including Vonrat, I can say without a doubt that Vonrats got SKILLZ in pretty much any aircraft he's in, uber or not http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Not bad for a landlubberin' mammal if you ask me http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif


12-17-2004, 04:53 AM
I think your right i was confusing you with jimbo the rat, my mistake. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

And yes the p39 is uber to me as well even with it being alot slower then 109s and its 700kmph breakup compaired to the 109s 900kmph shed parts speed and its much harder to hit with the p39 cannon then 108 or 20mm,

But it is the only plane that can turn remotely similiar with 109s and decelarate in my opinion and why i fly german its the only plane that can put up a fight at all. I have to disagree with you about the a9 being a brick while i do thich it does need slightly more elevator its speed makes nothing allied even stand a chance under 5000m and you can stay on a spits tail long enough for one tap of trigger and thats all you need.

Im sure you notice the same p39 is the current only aircraft when flying luft that can put up a descent fight eveything else is like shooting airballoons but with no worries of running into the cables http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Ask all the lufts if they agree with me, before the p63 was the only thing that can putup a fight with the a9 190ds and ta152 and the remove it saying its a uber ac but leave the a9 190ds and ta152 its ridiculous i think.

Its basically a turkey shoot in wc when flying german and you know it most the fights are below 6000m and with aircraft that are as much at 70kmph faster then all allied ac can kill in 1 pass everytime and mantaine E so much better.

12-17-2004, 05:38 AM
turkey shoot,,, i dunno about that. i was flying p51 on warclouds yesterday and after i got used to it, i had a couple of 4 kill missions. its rare that i have a lw mission that good. i gotta say i love the fiftys, its really chews up lw planes, i was setting em on fire with deflection shots or ripping off wings.
i admit i got greedy so i rarely made a rtb, and would get swarmed by fws and 09s. but that was just dumb flying on my part.
i think that if i flew p51 careful i could get the highest scores that ive ever had.

in other words i think p51 is a good match for the fws, and i think theres plenty of red players on warclouds who would agree with me that many times its the blue side that are the turkeys getting shot.

12-17-2004, 06:05 AM
with all due respect i disagree with you immensly vonrat, i too get 2-4 kills if i stay at 7000m usually when flying the p51 or p47. But luft i get 5-10 each run always.

And for me to get 2-4 kills with .50 cal, i have also ran out of ammo plenty of times on 109k4s and 190s with hundred of flashes from nose to tail wingtip to wing tip which involves 3 or more passes getting hits that dont cause much damage and waving off with energy and waitng for the guy to land or run out of fuel.

Im using 200 convergence currently and use to use 275 the pilots manual states 285 for best effectiveness in the p51.

the 109 was a tiny fragile fighter extremely vunerable to light hits of .50cal

Another thing is heavy ac had a huge advantage in dive which they dont here, also heavier aircraft were much more stable gun platforms then the tiny lightweight ac which suffered much more recoil especially from cannon in game its the opposite the lightweight aircraft seem to be the most stable gunplatforms zero 109s yaks etc.

while the p47 190 p38 p51 p39 aircraft considered with the best gunplatforms suffer from terrible shake of guns. And it was thier weight which made them stable

12-17-2004, 06:18 AM
I would agree LeadSpitter, that the Axis currently have the best late-war dogfighters in the Western front.
But then again, I suppose if the Allies stay above 25,000 ft they wouldn't have too much of a problem at all http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Interesting also to see you in a BF-110G2 on Warclouds yesterday LS http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Before moving to Australia I used to fly mainly European servers e.g. F16 and Virtual Pilots and sometimes the American Warclouds and LLv34_Stafroty was the best pilot by far.

I've seen him in action loads of times and been shot down by him loads too. He's very accurate with his shooting. The guy would join the server take off and suddenly have several hundred points in a few mintues http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif Blitzpig Lixma was pretty good too but I haven't seen him for a long time.

Now since moving to Oz I don't play MP as I only have 56k now and even games like DoD suck on that over here.

12-17-2004, 07:06 AM
leadspitter you must be the best lw flyer on warclouds to get 5 to 10 kills a flight. i never heard anybody on teamspeak say they got that many while i was flying. theres some great pilots in warclouds using teamspeak and the most kills a mission i remember hearing about is five or six.

i'll have to wing with you some time to see you in action, maybe i'll pick up some pointers.

as to the 50s, im sure your aware that you don't have to blow every plane outta the sky instantly everytime. if you just shoot em up bad chances are they are out of the fight and gonna crash before rtb anyway. those planes that you ran outta ammo shooting at were probaly out of the fight after taking that punishment.

12-17-2004, 09:13 AM
Agree Lead, to point***** go Blue on warclouds. Easy, easy kills. Yank, bank, no blackout, point, click, kill. EZ.

Gotta get some better late war US aircraft or this will continue on until some better sim comes along.

12-17-2004, 09:37 AM
Best pilots are the ones that do not put guilt on ALL PLANES OTHERSIDE ARE UBER, TOO FAST, TOO AGILE, TOO RESISTANT, TOO EVERYTHING. That is just childish

I play with ANY fighetr in game (from overall same year) with abaout same efficiency (only 190 I am better at since is my favorite ride).

I can get same number of kills in a P51, Corsair, P47 and EVEN p38 than I do in bf109 or Ki84.
