    I am terribad at this game thread

    Just started playing this game. Had good success with the Marcolin (?) but now am having a really bad time with BF 109 E-1

    Is it just a piece of shit or am I terrible? Playing realistic battle.
    Most of the time I get high above everyone then try to strafe something but don't seem to do any damage. Then I get tailed by a spitfire and it's gg. :/

    The 20mm FF do not have great ballistics, if you are hitting but not doing anything you are only hitting with the machineguns. Try to get closer before you open fire. The 109 e is pretty close to the spit in turning and slightly better in the vertical iirc. If you start above him you should be able to stay above him. Dont try tk finish him in one pass, but bouncing him untill he lost his energy defending and kill him for the sitting duck he is.

    Who doesn't? I have a feeling tomorrow will also involve baked goods, though.

    Ah thats the one with 4 mgs, been too long since I played. Yeah you aren't going to get much done in a single pass then.

    I'm trying it but I must be horrible. Even when starting above a spitfire he can just turn upwards and destroy me from below. When burning away from him at full I gain maybe 0.01km on him every other second :/ I have all modifications too

    E-3 is a difficult machine because you always have to have alt advantage. One trick against early spits is to do a downward immelman because lol carburettors and shit roll.
    F-4 will be easier.
    G-2 is a beast however you play it unless you dogpile with Yaks or Spits below 3k.
    Then it's down the drain again because stronger russians and allies. Unless you can surprise mk108 their asses you are ded.

    That's for messers.

    If he can just point his nose up and kill your the energy differences isn't big enough. Probably he was a bit lower but higher airspeed while you are very slow, in essence on the same energy level. The difference is in acceleration, not in top speed or dive speed. So to create a gap you need him to slow down with you first, before you can accelerate away.

    e1 is quite nice when the MM is playing ball, you get lots of biplanes and they really don't stand a chance vs you.

    e3 has odd cannon, and not much ammo for them

    shit gets gud at the f4, and the g2 is probably my favourite one to fly, it feels responsive and has enough cannon.

    for the entire 109 line you a) fire very close (300m) and b) keep your energy. you do accel well, but if you let yourself get to a similar energy as a spitfire it probably isn't going to end well. i'd say 109s are actually harder to fly than 190s.

    I managed to get the hang of it a little bit. Flew around a bit with a few of the other low tiers (FW 190 A-1 and the Bf 110 C-4) and had a bit more luck. I guess it's mostly down to playstyle difference compared to the biplanes.

    Biplanes don't really have a style because they are all late overpowered models. Chaika is absolutely ridiculous - you just point and chop.

    Maybe they think there is some technical reason you need them to be full clients.
