ok starting to get into this and haven't seen another night game and for that matter not another loss ( i'm expecting a bad run any minute )
what crew skills do you recommend improving first?

worked out the hard way about spending 10gold on on "backup plane" just assumed it would be permanent

also is it usually the case that the highest available ammo is the one to choose?

been playing this for the last week, game has potential but like most of these only take one really bad thing to stop me playing...and that is RAMMING..

omfg...just had 6 games...4 planes each time, lost every plane and out of those 24, 18 were from ramming...both enemy and friendly...fukkin ridiculous. First time I didnt enjoy the game...waste of 1 hour of my time, generally not a good sign for a game like this imo. And in those 6 game, only got 3 kills...apparently 12 MGs from my hurricane mk2 cant kill a spitfire within 300 m, yet a single mg on the back of a tier 1 attacker plane can one shot me . Was going drop sum money on this in a few weeks..but much more of this shit and an uninstall will be incoming....such a shame..so few decent games out atm

For those that are just getting into the game, like myself, a good place to start could be http://warthunder.com/en/news/125/current/
then maybe have a look into the Flight Academy

I got over ramming..

A lot of players get mad at rammers but if they are in a plane approaching me at high speed with full guns blazing, if they don't make an effort to get out of the way.. why should I.. it only gives them the easy kill.

They can call me whatever they want but it's really their fault.

I have been in dogfights with really good players and its a thing of beauty, the noobs just try a head on chicken run and cry rammers afterwards.

No.

If someone is really just going for head on you start firing at about 1.2 and avoid the collision at ~.7 with the lag you should just miss their burning wreck.

The thing is though, I dont get mad if I get rammed a few times, It when you get rammed 4 out of the 5 planes u had...that is gets annoying (very annoying after the 3rd time lol)..but doesnt get me mad. What gets me mad is when a fukkin TEAMMATE rams me..OMFG. And when I say teammate it usually from behind. I've only ever hit a teammate once and that was cause i got hit in the wing or sum shit and couldnt turn quik enough and boom. But i've loss count the amount of times i'm been rammed by teammates..even had one game...got rammed by enemy 3 times...then my last 2 planes...teammate rams me..omfg.

Oh well, i found if I play 2 or 3 games, and get rammed more then 50% of my deaths..i quit and play another time as if I keep playing its the same retards on the servers and you keep getting rammed. Usually works for me anyway.

Actually no.. because of the lag you are ~.3-.7 seconds behind the other player which means that he's started firing ~.3-.7 seconds ahead of you so you are dead before you start firing.

Average ping for me and most of Aus I think, is about 350-500 ms

That's why its never worked for Rusty.. or me.

Pick the US server. However I have had no issues playing on the EU at 300+ or RU server at 500 ping.

i'm on the US server...the only way i win a head to head and survive if i'm in sumthing with 4 cannons in the nose and they in like a biplane.

On another note...good to see 'trolls' being more common...one game our spawn was being camping by enemy team, if they didnt instant kill us in one pass, they would ram us . Also getting sick of the reserves planes taking 1000 bullets and still not dying....and also exploding in flames from a few 7.7 mg bullets in sumthing big like beaufigher . i know i know..sometimes you get lucky and shit and hit the pilot, but i'm bursting into flames. This has been happening to me a little too often atm, but it always seem to continue when you fly with/against same ppl over a few matches in succession...which I would then call out the H word... but no fear...if this shit happens after the 2nd/3rd game in a row i quit...just like the ramming situation.

Its a shame it happens..but you get your good days...and then you get the bad

EDIT...and WTF is with the MMing atm...no domination matches??? just played roughly 12 games in a row..not one domination...which also lead to me quitting the game today on top of the trolls

I don't seem to have any of the problems you're having?

In regards to ramming, it was mentioned before. Firstly, think what aircraft you are going head to head with. If it's a yak, p-39, beaufighter, in short something with cannons, THEN DO NOT GO HEAD TO HEAD WITH THEM. hehehe, almost always will end badly for you.

If you think you can hurt them, start firing at about the 1.0 - 1.2 mark as mentioned earlier, then always bunt (push stick forward using the W key) by about 0.7. In doing this, you will never get rammed. Quite simple really.

Unfortunately most people, myself included, get tunnel vision and too focused on the kill in front, then realise too late to avoid. Or some people are just plain retarded. Either way, if you always bunt at 0.7, you will not get rammed anymore.

With the lag we experience here in Australia, it might seem like you only got hit a couple of times before blowing up. This is incorrect, you're actually taken a fair amount of sustained fire, it's just being displayed in brief chunks. I used to get pissed off when it seemed like after only one "hit" my aircraft turned mostly black and red with no ailerons. But then I realised what was happening and just accepted it.

I would pull left/right or high left/right into an immelman to avoid getting shot in the cockpit by their poorly aimed dropping shells and get on their tail.

Good suggestion, but only if you have the energy to pull this off. Otherwise you turn into a slow arse perfect target hanging in the sky
