I fly HB to have fun, but I fly AB to farm money fast. If they adjusted the earnings I would never go near AB.

Alt tab for 5 to 10 minutes while climbing, then having to return to base and waste 10 minutes, only to hunt the last guy who's hiding for another 5 minutes, best game mode!

(WTB Arcade with HB flight model)

Actually I've been flying bombers a lot in HB, you start in the air etc. Do217 sooo much better than flying that damn He111.... You get 5000 cash for popping a heavy tank or destroyer I think.

You either just started this game recently or are trolling heavily no?

Varc, you're both dumb cunts when it comes to this argument so just stop it.

Nope been playing for ages, took a long break and then back again. Arcade is so mindless it's good to have a change of pace sometimes.

Unlike you singleminded freaks i'm able to enjoy all game modes (except full real because rigging up my joystick would require me to tidy up my desk).
Arcade for some quick fun action, historical if i feel the need to pull my pipe and tobacco out, groom my neckbeard whilst recording my musings on the finer things in life before killing a plane or two.
However, historicals are better enjoyed alone than flying in squads, because you WILL die of boredom if you're the first to die and your squadmates keep flying for another 45 min.

But now there's a subform to have fun in. (I don't mind arcade I just find it gets repetitive pretty quick)

I said I was sorry I missed that spit and it died seconds too late. :)

On a different note:
The Ki-84 and A6M3 mod22 Ko Japanese fighters are coming in one of the future patches!

On the topic of AB vs HB eternal neckbeard war: I get more buzz from killing one plane in HB than four in AB.

I would love to play FRBs but the pixel hunting is just too much for me. Too tedious and annoying, plus I get a headache from using FaceTrackNoIR :(

FRBs with icons pls Gaijin :(

It's a bit like debating taste in music, women and religion.
All modes have their pros and cons, which is nice since i can choose which suits my mood the best at any given time.
Unlike, say, Mechwarrior and tanks which only have one mode regardless.

You mistake my intent. Not saying FRB is superiah!111. Saying the argument is nonsensical. As Hogg says, there is a time and place for each mode and one is not inherently superior to the other. It all depends on what you want from it. If, for example, I say I want a challenge: AB with FRB controls, cockpitview only, no lead indicator. Hardest mode. Enemies with superior SA and aim vs you.

Yeah I know, sorry you took my post as a stab at you, and I fully agree with you :) I was just relating to my FRB experience.

FRBs with icons pls Gaijin :(But isn't that what HB essentially is? Also mouse aim.

Anybody know how to turn the fucking instructor overdrive off?

Kinda, except FRB has stalls, forced cockpit and stick controls (terrible mouse stick thingy is not an option). I've read somewhere that FMs are also slightly diffrent, but I think it's rather due to diffrent control method.

Difference between HB & FRB FM is as big as between AB and HB. You can use mouse 'joystick' but its not recommended. HB still allows mouse aim and thus some instructor. FRB has none ever due to only allowing instructorless control modes.

In over 300 HBs I think I stalled total of 5 times, three of them I flew with a stick, so yeah :)
