This Topic is for those of us who are trying to improve our skills, but it semms nothing gets better.
Don´t give up, don´t quit, keep going!!!
For sure I´m not an ace, just a newbie that is begining to be able to fly in expert mode and that is shotting down more planes than in normal mode few weeks ago.
I´ll try to give a few humble hints for the very beginners, that may help them to improve faster.
- Don´t abuse playing normal mode, since you will get very bad habits that won´t let you improve your skills, specially situational awareness. This mode is good at the begining for target practise and control your plane movements. Once you get this, try playing expert mode!!
- For deflection shooting, record your flights and review them in slow motion outside the cockpit. Then you will assess better if your shots are short or long, since sometimes the foe is behind your cowl. Then correct your aim.
- It is crucial to set a sensitivity of at least 50-60% for the input response of plane controls, especilly for pitch and roll. This is for those who only can spread some lead around the foe when trying to do the final fine aim.... With this sensitivity, a gentle move of your joystick will put your cross at the point wished.
Sorry for my poor english an good luck!!
