Hi Everyone,

I am bringing this thread for all those who have joined the game for the first time and don't know the basics of this game. Being senior members it’s our moral duty to help the new comers and make them aware about the game. I request one and all to post the guiding tips to them so that the new comers could fly and take stand against red team. I will compile all tips into one which will serve as manual for all those beginners.

The members can take a topic like Types of game (giving brief description about the game and how it is played, How to upgrade planes, when to upgrade plane, tips to play on mobile, ipad or pc, how to face better player, shooting tips etc. etc and any topic which is beneficial for new joiner.

Team Play
  • Each game is played with two sides of 4 members each depending upon the availability of players. If there are less players even then game will start and with more members joining the game, it will try to make a team of maximum 4 members on each side.
  • When a new member joins in the game, it automatically send the player to the side having less members.
  • Usually, one side is called German and other side is Ally.

  • This is not really true. I have been in games being the only blue, only to watch red after red join the game so that I end up alone against four.

    Eagle I agree with you, but from the zuperman point of view, he had made provisions to balance the team and most of the times we find the team to have equal members. Let's take off on positive note.


    Uh.lol. remember our game earlier and how long the teams were lopsided. I think an update is needed to fix it, but we know we just have to deal with it until the new dog fight is released.lol

    If you see me, remember I see you too!!

    Rule #1 of Dogfight- Do not shoot Husky Dog.

    Rule #2 of Dogfight- Do NOT shoot Husky Dog!

    So many players these days are too quick to ignore these rules. It's getting pretty disappointing.

    as a noob you will be shot down alot but take advantage of the chute if you land you will net a cool 50 points and if you get killed in chute it wont count against you so go for it (if you see Husky Dog in chute shoot him with the tank he loves it)

    Great thread Blue Fighter!

    1. If you're new remember shoot the reds and not your blue team.

    2. Ask for tips and be nice if you are new. Many senior players enjoy helping.

    3. Don't get frustrated. It's a game! We were all new at one time and had to work on flying, fighting, landing etc.

    4. If you like, join a squad. But first read about them and get to know some of the squad members.

    5. Have fun! That's the most important thing.

    Now go enjoy DF and meet some great folks,

    GhostWolf

    What about becoming a better turn fighter? I could never figure that out. I've seen bottom tier planes win turn fights over top tier planes, so there must be a trick to it.

    this. tablet players currently have advantage over PC because of a sensitivity imbalance. PC players cannot adjust sensitivity. as a PC player, if tablet player gets me into a turn fight, it's game over.

    I put a few bullets into a teammate sitting on a carrier in a CTC yesterday because I saw the red on his Siemens Schukertt. Dang this tiny phone screen!

    There is.. but you'll have to figure it out for yourself B) Ziza regularly would kill top tier planes piloted by well known guys in the Top 100 while flying the free bottom tier Airco AH-8!

    To be a better dogfighter my 1st suggestion is to read up about basic combat fighter maneuvers.. you can start here--> www.navyflightmanuals.tpub.com/P-1222 (Air Combat Maneuvering) it will ground you in the basics and even though the lessons learned would serve you better in a proper flight game incorporating realistic physics as opposed to this more arcade like game you still can't go wrong from learning all that you can.
