3 of me?

Discovering the Ruski planes are far better than everything else and the Brit stuff you get to start with sucks. Got to do some grind before you can even buy a Hurricane.
Kicked some ass in my Russian biplane. 4 kills in one session.

I was on there for a while tonight. Tried a couple of the tutorials and joined a mission. Still trying to sort out the controls. They don't quite translate to the Apple trackpad or Magic Mouse. BTW, no Apple download at this time, so I'm running it in a virtual Win7 environment. Now, I'm kicking myself for selling the joystick.

Might have to go shopping.

I think a stick would be a good move if you're really into it.

I've got my Ruski planes loaded up with bombs too now which makes taking out the ground targets a little easier. You can spend your in game cash in the research window. But you're mostly restricted by rank before you can buy stuff. I note there seems to be an update soon.

I've only has one mission so far where there were boats.

Got the Mac app for this. Been flying about defending England. Will try to make some friends today.

I'm still playing a lot. Didn't realise it's just a beta.

I'm not paying for anything so just grinding at the lower levels. I don't really care too much about reaching the top levels. I just want to deck out my planes with cannons where possible. I've a lovely couple of Hurricanes and spitfires but they're early types without cannon and I'd be as well hurling harsh language at a bomber.

looking forward to the sea / land elements being added
although there is already a tank battle game out there

gratuitous tank battles IIRC

So far, I like flying the Hurricane best. I still haven't qualified for the Spitfire. Have seven kills.
