Just a thought, but a place where us noobs can play with friends or whom ever many just squad members where we can battle each other and get tips and learn while actually playing and what ever happens does not affect stats i.e. a veteran player letting a noob shoot him down to learn aiming, dogfighting techniques or maybe a robot enemy to fight whilst a friend/squad can direct the knobs game play. I have found this game very very frustrating because it seems as though everyone's plane performs better and skill are much more refined than mine. Can't rank up because I'm always the one that ends up dead.

Zup has stated that to add something like this to game would require a huge amount of game coding and would require more servers. At present time the game does not generate enough money for him to do this. That said if I see you in game I would be happy to let you practice shooting me down. as well most players would be happy to help you

I second Cypher. Many here are good folks and happy to help. Many of us were frustrated when we started, but found players that offered advice, help and coaching. Hang in there and it will get better!

Thanks guys that's pretty awsome. I did make a purchase with the other account I use Colt_45. Support takes funds even if it's a dollar here and a dollar there.

Most players here are decent enough ladies & gents and will help when asked. 1st thing for you to do before entering multiplayer games is to do all the practice missions first as this will both pay you some money, home some skills, as well as increases your rank right off the bat.

Never could get past zep. Would say game over when I shot zep, but most of the time those pesky enemy planes would crash into me.

Contested zep missions are always difficult for both new and experienced players. Also crashes are fairly common at all levels.

As mentioned there are lots of experienced folks who are willing to help a new player. My advice is not only to ask for help but also watch and learn from more experienced players and stick with a game no matter how bad it gets. Show your toughness and everyone will notice you and even reach out to you with pointers and assistance.

Loggerhead, on the zep training mission make sure you kill all enemy planes. None of the missions will complete otherwise except for the one where you escort the ally plane to safety....that could be why it doesnt say mission acomplished after you shoot the zep. Enemy planes are pesty so try and get them out of your way first.

Everyone, loggerhead has been a friend of mine for several years now he'll be a good addition to the community...

Take him under your wing, Sir Outlaw. I am sure with you as his mentor loggerhead will do well. :)

I tell ya the only bad thing bout having the higher levels split from the lower is not being able to fly with lower level pilots who ask for help. I know many probly quit from frustration before they even reach level 10 and if they had just little taste of how much better it gets most would stick it out....

Outlaw, you're 100% correct. I enjoyed the days where you met the new players and told Boudicca to stop gunning them out of the sky!

How many new folks make it to the top level? I fly with the same handful of players and occasionally get a really good game.

We no longer have the honor of helping new players and most will never meet us.

Smoke, I think you're a good pilot. But that's a great idea for noobs to practice on some of us who been through all the shot up planes and updates. Only way to learn! Noobs need to know it gets better so don't give up!

In the process of getting my butt handed to me a long time back.the top players saw that i kept trying to get in the air even when they Davy, Blue Max, Wig etc, were inbound. Throttle up, wheels off the ground, BANG ! Down again. They saw i was determined and began to help me out. They still shot the Hell out of me but i got better, didnt whine for them to let me off the ground. They didnt camp either. So the ones i try to help are the ones who keep trying, not the whiners, not the ones who show on world chat crying about campers and spawnkillers. Ill help anyone that wants it, nothing if they demand it.

Well said, Sir Mongo! I recall the days of endless dying as a noob. The top players were excellent (Blue Max, Wig, Davy, HB, Viper, Digger...all the MORAF Titans of DF) let you off the ground and later gave you tips to get better. I learned to joke and take the game lightly--found some good folks who were willing to help.

Everything is earned, not just given.
