War Thunder Air Arcade - almost top 50 monthly by WR

Ove the past few months I've not played World of Tanks, having been convinced to play War Thunder Air Arcade by a couple of close friends. We generally play whatever the mission dictates - bombing if there are bases and hard targets to bomb, landing on airstrips to capture in ground domination, that sort of thing. We're not going for high numbers of kills, we're trying to make sure the team wins.

We only play random battles, and only play Air Arcade - played one Realistic battle, took ages before I found an enemy to shoot at, crashed into the sea, suffice to say it was boring and not fun! Generally we're playing at BR 2.0 to 3.0 as we're still unlocking planes, and I'm usually running either my British or German squadrons as they're good fun to play at these levels.

So last night we checked our monthly stats, just to see how we're doing. And I stared open mouthed at my placing in the Victories/Battles placing, which showed me at position 100. Never seen it that high before, and while we haven't played many games over the past few weeks we did have a 7 hour stint last Friday and won 32 games out of 34, combined with another 14 games on Saturday of which we won 12, for a total of 44 wins from 48 games.

Today one of my friends messaged me to say we'd pushed up even further today after another 10 wins from 10 games last night, and I've just grabbed a screenshot showing me placed at 87th. Now we're looking at trying to push into the top 50, so I'll be playing a lot more in the coming weeks.

If anyone wants to watch us play, I stream live on Twitch at http://twitch.tv/AgeOfStrife71 . One of the guys I play with regularly also has a channel at http://twitch.tv/ZakZimmerman but he keeps forgetting to turn his streaming on. Just a word of warning - the language can get a little ripe at times ;)

EDIT: 21-Mar now placed 58th, Just a little more to the top 50! :)

After another evening of gaming, managing 20 games with 18 wins, I've crept up to 85th. Plenty more gaming to come, we tend to play War Thunder on Thu, Fri and Sun evenings, and sometimes other evenings in the week if time allows.

Up to 80 today. Had another 9 games, 9 wins tonight, will be interesting to see if I creep up any more.

Been tracking it daily so far, highest I've crept up to is 58th yesterday.

Got another 15 games in tonight with 15 wins, pushing us to 38 wins in a row. Our record is 81 in a row as a squadron of 3 (ZakZimmerman, SlightBrown, and myself), and ignoring losses in between where only 2 of us were playing, but we're now tracking only wins in a row.

Roll on tomorrow to see where we get placed, as we should improve the 91% win rate on the monthly stats today.

I've also just gone over 80% efficiency on the Thunderskill rating for the first time :D
