There are no new skins, either.
Let's talk about aesthetics gentlemen.
First, is our kit friend around? Any progress?
Second, the faces. PES editors are great but it feels like a waste of time when we don't know the faces of 90% of the roster. So, you guys ok with giving a standard head to all players except for the few that can be done (Pixy, Edge, Camilla, Chopper, etc)? I was thinking about just making all of them bald.
Got one like this earlier today when I was doing the SOD challenge. The rivals had two A-10s so the result was almost the same.
Seems like the worst restock since the Belkan tickets shop became a thing. At least more people can get the POOKA now. The damn thing is adorable.
Skin was given early... only been the White Tiger skin as a new item for 3 months. Guess might as well grab all the dig-dug since didn't last time... and doubt it will for December.
RISE NUGGETS RISE!!!! YOU ALL CAN DO IT!
Did someone say rise?
Got a nifty sign in bonus for not playing for a while, meant to mention that but I forgot about you guys.
I stopped during the start of the single line event, got back in 2 days ago.
Bamco gave me 5,000 credits, 10,000 credits, 2 stocked fuel for daily sign in since, have 3 parts and 5 aircraft reports upcoming.
The dealer gives you a free hit to get you back.
So, we going with Charlie Fragger? It seems like the most mentioned in the last thread but it wasn't a clear majority so we can set ANOTHER poll up if you guys want.
Once again, we need to decide the silver players, alt goalhorns and then the starting eleven. I can set everything but really wanted you guys' input.
>It shouldn't be that hard to make a head for Belka right?
I... have absolutely no idea how a typical Belkan face would look like. However, there is a blender for /pol/'s Polandball so a Belkaball head should be feasible. As for the pilot helmets, I had thought about it but we need someone with the skills.
I could try asking blenderanon but most of the /m/ council will probably manage other VGL teams so it's probably not happening. Nonetheless, so far we don't even have a proper kit, so...
As for the starting IX, I'd suggest arranging a squad in lineupbuilder.com or startingeleven.co.uk and posting the picture. The formation doesn't matter as long as the silver and golden players are mentioned.
IRL Germans are ugly as fuck though. Look at Rot 1, he was a certified qt.
At least now we're back firmly in ded territory
And with that, <<Rise again>>
The only way to save this ded thread

Why do you still fight, /aceg/? What hope do you have left for this twisted game?
There will never be more campaign missions.
There will never be more maps following said missions.
All we have to look forward is more goyplanes, the ever so occasional little guy like the Tornado, and simply adding a (HARD) to all existing maps. Even tournaments are half-reruns, half new stuff now.

ded franchise. Lost hope
I don't really know.
I never cared about MR (to the point I've tried to never join a room with a host with lower MR) but after getting to 1900, it started to bother me. I've plummeted due to the recent idol and GE challenges (around 1850 now) and it made me paranoid because I know people will kick me if we get in a good raid, I won't get invites because I'm weak and I feel incredibly humiliated when I hear all the stories about delivering justice to whales and clubbers or how Reapers are always bad when in reality these things never happen to me.
So the games I join are always a struggle to try outscoring everyone and keeping my MR alive while trying to manage all the challenges. And that means spending a lot of time trying to find rooms with the maps I excel (pipeline HARD and Adriatic) but it feels like the mid 1800s are a kind of limbo, because you can't find people around that hosting - it's always 1900+ and I know I'll get curbstomped by the host. And there's nothing I can do about it. The mere search for a room became something that took the fun away.
I just wanted to fly different planes, have fun, but absolutely everyone outscores me unless I'm flying my OP plane. My pride doesn't let me take advantage of the nuggets. Infinity offers a wide variety of planes and punishes the player that wants to experience that in favor of good goyim who invest everything in a single machine.
And I didn't even start on how I actually changed my daily schedule to fit the playing sessions every 12h and my hate for PvP when TDM starts.
Goddamn, I'm almost dropping this game after writing all that. I don't know if I'm feeling like crying or bursting out in rage.
I miss the era of arcade combat flight sim, which is the 90s till early 2000s. This music, although not from an Ace Combat game but still from an arcade combat flight game, is one of those making me wanna go back to that era
<< It's time. >>
When a hobby isn't fun anymore, you give it a break. In ACI's case though, I'd permanently uninstall the cancer cold turkey. After that, simply reading people bitch about it here can still be amusing
The timezone never helps.
What concerns me is that I didn't care about that stuff before, but now I do. And the fact it always feel like I'm completely overwhelmed by the other players.
I actually like the game. Infinity is fun when it comes to the core gameplay. I really don't care about my score as long as we manage to complete the mission, but consistently hitting the bottom position in every room I go, even against similar MR rates, has a devastating effect.
Most of the stress when I get poor scores actually comes from knowing that I'm hurting my teammates by beng a scrub.
HPAA X-29A or HVAA YF-23 (both lv. 8) for fighter, 4AGM Chihaya (lv. 12) for everything else. I've got a Su-34 and it works fine mostly at Avalon and WBA but I never got anything good from it in other maps.
Yes, I know a 4AGM multirole is bad, but this is currently the best setup I have (enough power with regular missiles to hunt fighters, lots of ammo to deal with yellow ground targets while strafing), works well for most maps except building-heavy ones as Dubai or Tokyo. I'm terrible with SFFS and 4AAM can't compete with other stuff.
But it goes like clockwork. In Airspace defense? Someone will bring a fucking Vent d'Ange and LASM the shit of everything. Moscow? Too bad, here's a FAEB for you.
And fighters... hell, there's always 6AAM. Yes, I've managed to beat rooms full of 6AAM boats in my HPAA planes, but it's a rare thing. Most of the time my kills are stolen by those guys far away. Even when I bring my own 6AAM set it works like shit. I really dream of this wonder world from 2000s where people fly Foxhounds because I'm tired of ATD-0s and Wyverns and all that.
I'm actually working towards more planes. Got a Heartbreak, Ami is currently lv. 6 (I'll finally have a LASM set) and my Growler is also in the plans for ECM. I don't even know why.
Your problem can literally be summed up as: You aren't playing with an aircraft that fits into the A2A or A2G meta. The problem is, there's no real solution beyond embracing the meta at your MR. Hell, above your MR it only gets worse-how do you think the 2000+MRs usually got there?
This is how the kit looks in the Blender preview tool right now. I'm considering importing it into PES now to see how it looks and to see if those problems with the shorts and long sleeves are just a problem with the blender or if it's the kit texture.
Also, what color socks do you want? And the captain's armband?
>I actually like the game. Infinity is fun when it comes to the core gameplay.
Fair enough. There are things I wished they changed or fixed, such as the Data Link system, but overall I like the game as well.
>I really don't care about my score as long as we manage to complete the mission, but consistently hitting the bottom position in every room I go, even against similar MR rates, has a devastating effect.
Part of my enjoys yo-yo-ing my MR with the challanges.
I get up to 2000s MR flying my lvl 10+ PAK, Pixy Morgan, or Fullback, drop down to 1600s pulling out level 3-5 low-tier planes, or even level 1s, for challanges like the current God Eater nicknames and emblems, them curbstomp against 1600s with my lvl10s back up to 2000s MR.
And, really, it's much easier to find matches at 1700-1900 than above 2000.
If you have Chihaya, why not make an effort to learn SFFS? It's very easy to defeat FAEBMTDs on Moscow regularly with that setup. Not that great on most other maps, but for those there's the 4AGM Harrier. You're even better off there since you have a Su-34 which can go fast.
For Fighters, it's a bit complicated. Yes, 6AAM can fuck up everything, but it can also miss entirely and they're left with a lengthy reload time. I would strongly suggest having MSL Reload M on all your Fighters, getting in thick and dogfighting with your turbocharged standard missiles, switch to HPAA if you have a nice 6 o'clock angle, switch back to standards and fire away. This also has the side-effect of making planes dodge, which makes distant 6AAM fire more likely to miss.
Not really familiar with HVAA, but doesn't it also have a pretty long range? Maybe charging the damage on it so it can one-shot stuff and then you can also compete for further away targets? I've seen YF-23s dominate the fuck out of B7R rooms full of 6AAMers with that setup, so I know it can be done.
I don't know exactly how to describe, but is it possible to make the flames point kind of "downard"? In the planes it feels like they're going with the airflow, and considering how the players run I guess this is the same effect. Other than this bit, seems great! Thanks for the help
And we can only have this as the armband
Also, don't wanna ask for too much, but there was a suggestion earlier for another uniform, with the Varcolac pattern. I'm not a fan of the teeth but should be easy to make and give a bit more variety than the 2p pallete-swap black/purple version.
What does /aceg/ think? Is it doable artist anon?
Just fly the planes you love and be at peace with it then.
I always fly with my A-10, Tornado and Nagase and just try to have fun.
Do they outmeta me with their craptorito or STD?
The joke's on them, I'm flying a plane I actually like and just having fun.
Most likely. The dark blue looks nice, but very few have a darker scheme. Maybe the Strigon?
I was thinking Rafael since it would be similar in color to Strigon. Draken's X is a bit silly.
Razgriz, Schwarze and if you count grey, Yellow, Gelb, Wizard and Gault also have dark colors
>messing around the hangar
>joke that I'm gonna level my SODs to 5, the deed will be done with a single button press
>my finger actually does it
What the fuck did my body just do to me.
The one before leaving the hangar, I mean. Then the player information updated, and it was too late. I just don't know what was going on in my mind. But it's fucking hilarious that it happened.
I don't know if it's a good comparition, but I leveled up F14A to lv 12 and raptor to lv 7. Despite of Raptor having bigger mobility stats, it seems like F-14 still outmanouvers Raptor. I even tried it on the same body parts loadout, Still, Tomcat seems to be better.
I like having many different planes to fly and good access to every SPW for challenges so I have a lot of level 5-9 planes.
Also, how do the number of points for a slot increase interact with NSUs? If I wait to add a slot on before getting the NSU would the next slot have less points needed than if I had upgraded before adding the slot?
>Despite of Raptor having bigger mobility stats
>trusting the statbars
So aceg, what do y'all think about this painting I made a few months ago. I was going to do one for Razgriz, but then I saw how this turned out.
Hey, at least you got a UGB that is slower and causes a line of explosions. Thank God you didn't level up ESM to 5.
I've never watched a game of soccer before but I still vote and suggest things for this /aceg/ soccer thing. The only sport I watch is basketball because I liked NBA Jam as a kid but I'm still disappointed the ball doesn't burst into flames and every other goal isn't a slam dunk
This is what the kit currently looks like in-game. We might want to tweak the colors a bit? The collar can be changed and various bits and pieces of the kit can be customized but that comes later after the texture is finalized.
>Trying to do multirole 120 target challenge on Moscow
>Notice my teammate is doing the SOD challenge, I yield to him and go A2A
>He switches to ATD-0 at final moment
>I outscore him, but we lose because of his bullshit
Maybe a bit less purple in the shorts? Looks great nonetheless.
The best part of soccer is that you can literally play anywhere. Back in school we used to play on a slope with a crumpled tin can or a bundle of socks and sneakers as the goal posts. It was the worst thing ever when you had to score upwards.
>Nemo was talking some nonsense
Just as planned.
Now really, so far this looks really good, once again, thanks for the help.
About tweaking the colors, the orange bits feature a kind of gradient, and the flames have a thin outline, this might help making them stand out better, as well as >>120981034.
just a thought, but have you considered moving the pattern on the front of the kit to the back, and painting the plane's underbelly on the front with things simple basic things like intakes on (think like a gundam or starscream would have) and painting the shorts to resemble the engine exhaust nozzles
Holy fuck, piston aircraft's 20mm does shitload of damage against red planes. Flew Lv.7 stock P-38L in Tokyo for shits and giggles and it tore open Raptors like a knife through hot butter.
Emergency T-50s on the other hand, not so much.
In April 2015, the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA) released a report concluding that the next-generation U.S. Air Force fighter should be larger and more resembling a bomber than a small, maneuverable traditional fighter. It analyzed over 1,450 air-to-air engagements since 1965 and found that long-range weapons and sensors have dramatically decreased instances of dogfighting. With the increase of air defense systems using electronic and infrared sensors and high-speed weapons, traditional designs relying on small size, high speed, and maneuverability may be less relevant and easier to intercept. As a result, the CSBA suggests building a fighter significantly larger relying on enhanced sensors, signature control, networked situational awareness, and very-long-range weapons to complete engagements before being detected or tracked. Larger planes would have greater range that would enable them to be stationed further from a combat zone, have greater radar and IR detection capabilities, and carry bigger and longer-range missiles. One airframe could be fitted with various attachments to fill several roles.
As of 2013, studies were underway to apply the lessons of the YAL-1 by mounting laser anti-missile defenses on Unmanned combat air vehicles that could fly above the altitude limits of the converted jetliner. By 2015, the Missile Defense Agency had started efforts to deploy a laser on a high-altitude UAV. Rather than a manned jetliner containing toxic chemicals flying at 40,000 ft firing a megawatt laser at "tens of kilometers" from a boost-phase missile, the new concept envisions an unmanned aircraft carrying an electric laser flying at 65,000 ft firing the same power level at potentially "hundreds of kilometers" away for survivability against air defenses. While the ABL's laser required 55 kg (121 lb) to generate one kW, the MDA wants to reduce that to 2–5 kg (4.4–11.0 lb) per kW, totaling 5,000 lb (2,300 kg) for a megawatt. Unlike the ABL which required its crew to rest and chemical fuel to be reloaded, an electric laser needs only power generating from fuel to fire, so a UAV with in-flight refueling would have near-inexhaustible endurance and armament. A "low-power demonstrator" is planned to fly around 2021.

I also got PJ. It took me about 60 fuels so I'm not too mad about the fuel expenditure.
Giving Windhover as a handout, and making it the absolute best F-16C (save for a small speed advantage to the PJ) and having it start at level 5, and allowing it to reach 15 without forms are really unfair.
I understand stats being better. After all, it's the game's power creep. The last two points are the only really sore ones, a gigantic fuck you to those who got the PJ.
I can understand giving roughly equivalent, competitive aircraft as lower end rewards, but the Windhover was just too much better than the PJ.
F-15C Pixy, F-15C Cipher and F-16C PJ upgrade when?
Why won't you give rest to PJ's soul, PA? It
s been 20 years.
>the Windhover was just too much better than the PJ.
Signups are open!
Apparently we need te roster finished so I'm taking the liberty of choosing positioning. I've got only one suggestion for star players so we're going with Mobius and Cipher as silvers.
Does anyone know how to properly set up a wiki page?
My X-49, half way to affording level 7 upgrade.
Fuel wise, probably my Akula or Oruma (was rank 350ish for that tourney), though I only really spend fuel for tdm, due to the large amount of dosh you can earn.
Kitfag here. I'm pretty sure you can change the roster as much as you want so long as it's before the export deadline. I can also help you set up your page, it's not hard, just copy somebody else's page.
But there was no special tree originally. I just remembered that using the Block 1 gives different lines at the start of the mission. Same with the Inferno skins. It's been a long time since I've heard them.
Stop reminding me we will never have a community shop and I will never be able to recive a gift aicraft from a fellow pilot.
I hope one day my vanilla A-10 won't feel like an A-10.
When you go to the normal view page, there'll be a red link for the pictures. Just click and follow the instructions (that's how I made the icon logo, just make sure to fit the size and format rules). It may take a while to appeara after you load it. Don't forget to use the new one (>>121003606)
Yeah, I was expecting an AC2 tourney as well based on that.
Has been run already this year, but that shouldn't stop scamco. They could also run the flanker, which was ALSO run this year.
Someone said that Cocoon Rafale might be this month's drop, and I'm going to guess that the upcoming tournament will be for the rest of the Cross Rumble planes or Nagase Shinden.
>Nagase Shinden as tournament prize
The dream is dead.
I'm not expecting a tourney this weekend, considering that the tourney ends on wednesday, giving relatively little notice for a weekend event, since announcements generally come right after a tournament ends.
Doubtful. The 6th is a Friday.Game updates are done by going into maintenance on Tuesday, and coming back online on Thursday. The sole exception of the piston update, which was meant to be maintenance on Wednesday, game back online on Friday. And as well all know <<It didn't work out.>>
Dont be a shitboy and get litterally any other attacker
It's too fucking slow, and I have no access to better speed enhancing parts
not that parts slots would let me to install it. It flies like a mud. Also, how the fuck you can wipe doritos with that rocket launcher?
Neh, I just need something to get the challenges, I'm not particulary skllful in A2G combat. I need something that's fast enough to catch up with other doritos and MTDs and actually get some hits.
Not only SFFS, I meant attackers as a whole. All I have are A2A fighters (that's where I'm feeling best), and while I can fart some damage here an there, fighters won't grant me everything.
Learn to yaw properly. Rockets go mostly straight with a slight downwards fluctuation due to gravity, so you'll need to aim a bit above. If you're leveled, you can hit a large straight line of targets going directly towards it, or if you're facing it sideways, yaw for the same effect. It's hard to aim when doing turns and stuff so avoid that.
So how do the point costs for the slots work? LIke if I sit on the level 5 -> 6 upgrade and put a slot or two on, will the point cost of the third slot be less than if I had gotten the two slots that come with the 5 -> 6 upgrade?
Gentlemen, I have good news.
Other than aesthetics and the fluff, the team is ready to hit the pitch.
Now it's a good time to see if we can get testers. I'll try installing in another machine but in my toaster the matches run in slow motion, literally, and I'm afraid to fry the processor by doing that.
I still need to arrange the squad numbers, fix some faces (I've got help to make the pilot helmets) and wait for the kits. Other than that, the stats, heights and everyhting are in order. I've arranged the team in a way to optmize the 3 strategies, so if anyone wants to see a favorite player in a different position, it's just a matter of changing names and looks as the stats will remain the same for each position.
As for the wiki, great job real9! You may just need to fix the manager position - some people were favorable to Pops in there (and that's what I put in the game), so we can give ownership to PA.
There are a few notes about the names/shirts.
Can't have numbers in the name so 30 tickets will have "GOLDEN CRATE" in the back, being numbered 30, and Yellow 13 will be "AQUILA".
C. Fragger is NUGGET, Cipher has "GALM ONE" and Talisman has "GARUDA ONE". Finally, Edge has NAGASE in the back. I think with that we managed to get all the references together.
Any suggestions or criticism are welcome.
>Buddy Morgan can die in a fire.
Yeah fuck you too pal
Ah, yes the non-piston restriction. Here I am wanting to play pistons in regular rooms, and they won't let me. Even in clubbing rooms. You would think that clubbers would allow players to fly the absolute shittest craft available?
Finally upgraded my F-15E enough to bring it into combat, replacing lv.11 F-16F after over 300 sorties. At lv.8 the Eagle flies so much better, too.
Still, I'm going to miss that Fighting Falcon. It pulled me through the dark times when Berkuts polluted the skies, and many more post-UGB nerf.
>Exchanging the Falcon for the SFFShit Eagle
Shaking my head to be honest family.
Take that SFFS to 5! it is worth if senpai.
we can dream.
The emblems and planes already trigger enough players hearing J-pop might send them over the edge.
>F-15SE will never be a thing in real life because everyone thought the F-35 would be the future
I knew I had missed something.
We've got the possibilty of featuring custom goalhorns. So far there are two suggestions for Mobius one, one for Talisman and probably Zero for Buddy. Any other?
>got to have the S/VTOL
Damn marines ruining chances for good planes
but seriously though as much as I don't like the F-35 would the F-15SE actually be a better replacement in comparison?
I think it would be a good replacement for the F-15. F-35B will not work in air superiority missions. It doesn't have the maneuverability, speed (despite its powerful engine), or ammunition to keep itself alive in a sustained WVR engagement.
Technically the built-from-the-ground-up stealth on the F-35 should make it better in all BVR engagements, but it has very few missiles, and if it was forced into a WVR engagement, it will most certainly die. It can't keep up with the F-16, and therefore can't keep up with the Mig-29, therefore it can't keep up with the Flankers, including the Chinese ones.
And being in WVR engagement is NOT that rare. Rules of engagement and all, you know.
The F-35 is essentially a huge gamble on making the opponent lose energy before you do by firing on them first. And we all know the history of the air force and planes with "future war" gimmicks that can't fight the current one. If Russian radars get good enough at detecting F-35s, we are pretty much toast. Once you are seen, you don't have the choice of disengaging. You will be outrun, outturned, outgunned. You better hope your 2 AMRAAMs hit their target.
the F-15SE doesn't fit into the whole "single weapons platform" idea they were going with then, no carrier compatibility (too big), some say limited stealth due to base design, no S/VTOL capabilities.
remember, the F-35 was meant to replace almost every fighter in the US military.
At this point I don't think more slots matters very much
How to git gud with SFFS?
I know that going up or down changes the way bomblets disperse. But the effect doesn't seem promising. Tried some runs on the flight practice mission and everytime I dropped the bombs around 1/3 of targets survived, even when on blast radius.
I don't know how it can be useful in co-op when you have to fly extra fast and can't aim properly.
SFFS is weird in that it gets extra bomblets as it levels up, meaning it really starts to shine only if you invest quite a bit in it
Other than that, just stack damage and blast radius parts. I think they still work on SFFS
time till impact affects how many bomblets spawn.
which means fast dives give you jack shit compared to going slow at the same altitudes but since diving compresses your AoE, it might be useful for focusing targets.
don't use the aoe circles as a guide, bomblets are pretty much RNG. you can only guarantee hits when most of the circles are within overlapping range of another
Speed also effects the bomblets, as I'm sure you've noticed. Gotta slow down and get them all nice and clustered up over the group of targets before you press that trigger.
Yes, slow down. The antithesis of the entire meta upon which the game is based, but you must.
Also what the other anon says, it becomes a force to be reckoned with but only at level 4.
Can't say that I need any parts for it on a multirole like Chihayan though, just Bomb Ammo L and the rest of the slots are all free to supercharge the standard missiles.
That's absolutely fuckin adorable
How does that thing even fly?
Good on you anon, treat her well and she'll deliver the MVP screen unto you with all of her might.
I am troubled, if I should devote all of my love to her and get her to 15, or if I should save every digit in my credit wallet for a certain superplane that will return at some point.
Finally finished the damn 4AAM challenge
Chihaya now shits SFFS all over the place.
Ami and Growler getting stronger
Waiting for a damn 2mil drop so I can get X-29A and Su-34 to lv. 10
Saving up fuel for the next ntdm and saving up money for a level 7 X-49. Did all the challenges except the new F-20 one, except now I'm having trouble with my regular planes after doing so much with low level ones.
Also, what is it about Dubai that attracts clubbers to it? Almost all of those I've seen lately are 2300+ beginners welcome rooms.
Nothing. I am waiting for a reason to fight, level 20 on SP planes. I am saving credits until that day, so my Pixy Eagle can reach 20 straight away.
>want to play Adriatic, Tokyo or Dubai
>never any rooms up
>make my own
>nobody ever joins
>look at my stat screen
>Moscow and B7R have both over 500 sorties each
>Avalon has 200
>rest is between 200 and 100
I would love to play more Dubai. Before B7R, it was my favourite...
But ever since Moscow, nobody plays Dubai, because Moscow is more fuel-efficient for tournament ranking points. Avalon Dam and B7R have their niches: Attacker and Fighter respectively. Dubai has no such claim, and thus it doesn't get played
I wish more people hosted HARD rooms. You can hardly see an Aerospace nowadays (there were tons weeks ago due to the OEL challenge), and it's been like a month since I last saw a Pipeline HARD.
Really considering setting up a room for /aceg/ if we can gather at least 4 people
Just a couple hundred thousand more and my -AV- will be 12 and finally able to one-shot XSAMs.
Which the regular Hornet will never be able to do unless the level cap goes up again, and even then I have no idea when it would be able to do it. Not that I'd ever be able to afford it.
After that I suppose I'll start saving up to get my Ganaharrier to 15.
Well, the Hard map credit bonus disappeared, and the money appeal of hard missions dried up right there.
Most people are not going to risk getting shot down several times, or A, maybe even B rank to get roughly the same credits as a normal mission.
I liked Dubai better when it was AT NIGHT. Dubai during the day is really disorienting for me.
I've discovered something truly revolutionary.
The SP weapons on the Morgan represent each kind of ace from Zero
TLS - Soldier (Takes out what it can)
MPBM - Mercenary (Doesn't care about anyone but himself, even goes as far as to blind his "teammates" to achieve his goals)
ECM - Knight (Helps teammates)
Interesting thought, and it just made me think of an interesting idea for a boss fight in a future Ace Combat (never):
An AI that goes around learning how to dogfight.
It first sends out one aircraft to fight you, to learn how you fight, and it learns your strategies, then when you shoot down that first aircraft, it sends out a second one, which spawns directly opposite to you, and mirrors your every move.
Then the third stage of the fight would involve fighting 4 copies of you.

Good luck buddy, fenrir is fat and fun to fly

Hey, no bullying the little guys.
Alright, time to talk about alt goalhorns.
We've got two options for Mobius One but I forgot to ask the anon who suggested it - he mentioned the victory theme after Megalith, is it the same that plays in Infinity with the emblem MVP? Just to make sure, been a while since I played 4.
Also, suggestions? People mentioned Pixy and Talisman, do you guys want any others?
>get Ami to lv. 8, LASM lv. 3
>"eh, not much slots, 1300 cst, should be alrigh-"
>Chihayan lv. 12, SFFS lv. 3
>"ok, let's see if the /aceg/ tips might wor-"
Christ. Idolpower is something else.
These are thw two for Mobius.
I'm pretty sure that's the music that plays when the Mobius emblem MVPs. Don't have one so whatever
Is this for Scarface? We already have AC2 music as the original goalhorn but I think /aceg/ should have the final word on it. More than that, I think the tune is too short, the goalhorn should go on for a while. Are there any others a bit longer?
Might work. Says the video is not available. Is this it?
>Avalanche costs less than JR
>Inferior plane is more expensive
It's the right song, but that's the live version. Search it out on YouTube, you should be able to find a nonlive version. First chorus is what I was shooting for.
If worst comes to worst, pomf may be dead but I'm pretty sure there's a replacement somewhere I can utilize.
I wish that they would at least be consistent with prices rising with tier, but then we have shit like the Su-35 compared to the Typhoon and the STD compared to the Rafale.
>Done with my supplied for the day
>Browsing SP planes and looking at descriptions out of boredom
>Check the Black Hornet
>That fucking skin
Any chance of a re-run?
Just fuck my shit up f a m
That thing is only like 2 stars too, I could farm upgrade forms for that baby off of tickets and have it to 15 in no time. Yet it's got the exact same cst and SPW selection as the Joly Rancher Hornet, which is 4 stars and needs fancy forms to upgrade. Get your shit together Bamco.
>decide to host a room for the first time
>3rd mission emergency sea strike
>lets bump this up to 6p
RIP those two brave pilots who took a chance and sortied under my yellow connection. I guess I couldn't handle more than 4 people.
Most idol players are top tier Japanese players. If you ever play at japan peak time you'll sometimes get games that are just idol planes or people flying with idol emblems.
I've done pretty well in the yukihawk for what it is.
>Doing some grinding before aircraft upgrade campaign ends
>Get another gold box 2 sorties later
>Yet another gold box on last sortie
STOP IT. STOP IT RIGHT NOW BAMCO.
>Join B7R room
>Get Destroyed +xxx points
>No points added to my score
>Getting killed from 10km away before I reach them
>Kill swarms of enemies
>Only get points for half
One of those games..
Feels great. Only wish the lvl 15 nickname was "Foo Fighter", instead "Russia Order".
FAEBs, why do they even exist in this game? they ruin the fun for everyone else in the room, if I see a player carrying a FAEB I automatically switch to air targets because there's no point for me to go after ground targets anymore
because on paper they sounded good.
larger aoe damage that doesn't hurt the stronger targets
then they buffed it, added faeb range and moscow.
have you tried playing maps that aren't moscow?
As an Amifag, I would encourage leveling LASMs to 5 in order to get the best out of them, but from testing just now by comparing level 4 LASMs to level 5, I couldn't really find any convincing reasons to do it, so it's all up to how much you value the slight stat boosts.
Yeah, mine is just at 3. I'm picking it won't matter, just like the X-02 tournament. Still pissed I spent that 0-3 money.
Took mine to 4 this week, in anticipation.
For previous tournaments.
Yes. Top 200 lower than usual. Top 20 about the same, top 1 is lolwtf?
