Ok, I'm writing this out of the love of the game, and last time I check that is what this site is about, and god damnit if I'm not going to share it.
I came across this game by fucking chance. Thought it looked cool, it was free, but planes cost money. Like a fuck ton of money. These fucking planes go for 80 USD. Just so you can fly one plane. Watched some youtube of the f-16 and a-10, shit looks cool, didn't really justify the asking price. But, being the warm blooded AMERICAN that I am, with some extra spendy cashy moneys, I bought 3 of these planes so far, a helicopter, and a expansion map. It started with the A-10. Just wanted to unload the 30mm on something. Created a mission, and flying I went. Problem right off the bat. The controls they have mapped for a controller really don't do anything of worth, other than keep me in the air. Pretty much I felt as though I had just wasted my time and money. Thought to my self "lets see if I configure the controls to fix this problem". Yeah, no. unless you have a deep understanding of the plane and the terminology that they use, you are going to be at a complete loss on trying to figure it out. Did a google search, found this guy that goes by Grim Reapers who has tutorials on all the planes. I mapped all the the commonly used ones in his video to the controller, and boom, able to track and engage targets on the ground over 10 miles away. From start to finish it took me about 4 hours to engage my first ground target. I'm currently flying the f-16 as my main with a total of 388 hours, and I'm still learning new things this plane can do. I haven't mastered the f-18 or a-10 yet, but ill do that once the f-16 stops being fun to fly. I really don't know how to finish this, other than its a great game, with a high learning curve, that rewards smart decisions.
This is gameplay of me taking out a f-18 in a pvp server. Video compressed to hell. Thanks youtube.
