The jet freaks have ruined the fun in this (once great) game. Zup can say all is equal but that’s bulls_hit. Those few who insist on jets (every game) do so because they aren’t as successful when they fly a bi-plane and have proven themselves to lack the success that they have in a jet.
Why? Because jets are faster in spiral bomb attacks (their favorite tactic).
Why? Because they can carry more bombs. Two jets fully loaded and BTC games are over in one pass. How much fun is that?
Why? Their rate of climb is greater.
Why? Because zup has profited from these jets might be the biggest reason. Yes I bought one fully loaded (but that’s when I was led to believe there would be a separate WW2 option.. not a way to polute WW1). I don’t use it cause it’s totally unfair.

If you voice unfairness the reply is usually “Zup says it’s all fair” or “I bought it and I’m gonna use it” IT’S TOTALLY UNFAIR!

Historically it’s wrong also... and stupid. In WW2 at best the impact of jets was minimal and supply was limited, but we have to endure facing jets every 30 seconds or so... game after game with no limit.
But zup has made the game tilted against those who prefer WW1 flying by allowing history to overlap by several decades. Embarrassing to anyone with a sense of history. I’m sure it turns off new users who respect history.

At this rate Zup will offer an expensive stealth fighter (or flying saucer) that will be virtually indestructible but expensive... the “jetters” will whine but zup will say it’s fair.

Hint: shooting jets head on gets best results if you slightly sweep your aim across the wing span plane. If incoming jet is spiraling only luck can hit the plane as the processor lag can’t keep up with the math required. You can tail a jet firing constantly ‘dead on’ but never register a hit.

Above is the reason I will quit this game and if it ever becomes a WW1 game again please notify me and maybe I’ll come back (as well might some of the greats who left this game over this rediculous WW1/WW2 STUPID merger.
If you fly your jet against biplanes and disagree with this post may you blackout from high G forces.

I cant catch them when chasing, I cant turn fight them, they come back after a spawn twice as fast as I can, they do carry more bombs, and even if the Spitfire can keep up with the jet, I FLY WW1, I prefer ww1, think mixing is doofus....

I feel better now...

The mixture of the two flight eras is the primary reason I don't play anymore. It has nothing to do with unfair or me having any difficulties shooting down anyone in anything.
I discovered this game and fell in love with it precisely because it WAS a WWI aerial combat game. There are actually tons of WWII aerial combat games already out there with better graphics and more realistic physics, but that's beside the point.. WWI was the dawn of dogfighting and rich in history and honor and is what I fell in love with, and I doubt I will be returning play to the game until the two eras are segregated once again.

And yeah, Davy will be back if Zuperman introduces flying saucer lol

I am a Jet Hog... however, Id prefer if the two wars were separated...

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not very good at this game and don't get to play as often as I'd like to...

but I got tired of getting my arse handed to me on every run, never getting to the base or carrier or whatever by the WWII planes...

so I paid the Piper and got the WWII planes... now at least I have a fighting chance...

as long as the Red team has a WWII plane I'll fly a WWII plane... if there is only WWI planes, I'll gladly switch to one also

I hope the player base rebounds someday soon so the wars can be fought separately and then I'll fly only WWI...

meanwhile, enjoy!!
