This is not a thread to bait anyone into an arguement... mods please keep this OT.
Last night I flew for about an hour on the NFF server.. after a horrific start in the Camel (not getting shot down, just a victim of the dreaded spin/stall) I switch to Central. Now being that I despise the DVa and all who fly it I jumped into the DIII and set off (argueably the same plane).
Carnage ensued. I easily seperated from Camels and N17s and was able to mostly turn the tables on the Spads. The N28's were not much of an issue... sniping at 300m+ is still an effective way to get an engine hit.
Before the usual suspects chime in with thier anticipated drivel... my main point is that the Allied planes are much harder to fly and have quirks that (for whatever reason) simply do not have to be dealt with on the German side (mainly the rotart engines).
There was a post that most ppl are playing Central becuase the new FM tweaks. That may be true for some... but you HAVE TO ADMIT that the Central planes are just so much eaiser to fly.
I know someone will post my stats... I was like .8 k/d 7 kills 8 deaths after 50+ minutes and ranked 4th for the map. I also managed to push the train about 20m off the track with a side impact. So yeah... just like in real life.
I think a new plane or two has to be put out on the Allied side to make it fun and reduce the learning curve. There is no 'albatross' level easy plane on the allied side (again not FM wise, just a solide enrty/mid level plane with an inline engine.. an no, the dolphin ain't it.)
