Me prefered view is 3rd person as it gives a broader field of view. What annoys me when flying with the mouse is the view rotates rather than being fixed with the cross hair in the centre. Will have to look at the options tonight.

There are no ping time displayed on servers?

How does everyone else find the online aspect of this game?
The host of a game has a lot more strain on their connection than the clients or when connecting to an arcade game etc. and it seems each system makes periodic contact with the log in / parent server as well.

You probably want mouse joystick instead of mouse aim.

When using mouse aim you can turn the aircraft harder with the keys because they get to the 'ignore instructor' limit faster.

The only thing that gets me is the extraordinary wait time on higher rank planes then you queue up with mid rank and fight exactly the same planes you were just trying to get into a game with.



Though it was rather amusing when a MIG 9 started talking shit at the start of a match only to be shot down by my buddie's rank 6 BF 109 E3.

Tried again last night. Managed to get two arcade games in without any lag issues what so ever. Must have been 20 a side. Great stuff.

Last game of domination the red team blitzed us. Their top ace got 13 kills. Goes by the name of DIVHUNTER or something.

lul wut

Nice that there was a witness to my best game so far and in Japanese rank 0 planes no less. This was after I convinced Raephix and Eucharos (the squad I was in) to play Russian biplanes. I believe after we won about 80% of our matches the comment was "these planes are OP as fuck"

war thunder is a good arcade game but i wish they would drop the full realism bullshit .

This game in no way gets even close to il2 for a combat sim . Joystick support is pathetic and mouse+keyboard is superior in any mode .

i enjoy the game in arcade mode simply for a thrash , nothing more .

I do love my beaufighter . Climb straight away at the start to ~4000m and look for bombers and then proceed to B&Z .

Something like 70% of players are playing arcade anyway.

With a 380-500 ping I'm not that keen on anything but arcade at this point.

Go dominate in a "Full Real Battle" and then come back and say mouse/keyboard is superior....

So your initial claim that mouse/keyboard being superior in any game mode regardless of flight modelling is useless bullshit hyperbole.

Got this installed last night... finished the tutorials and started my first arcade game.

Went US reserve planes, owned hard with 5 kills and 3 captures for a first place in the match with 1500 points or somewhere there abouts
