1. In honor of USAFguy22, I present you with a little light reading for this weekend... There will be a quiz on Monday.

2.  I've always wondered -- Why don't any black girls attend Flight High School?

 

3.  When does the White Tiger Mirage become available? I got it on my alt through magic, but I still haven't been able to find it on my main...

WOW jeez look at this guy trying to force diversity down the throat of everyone, c'mon boga why don't you accept the plane as good characters for how they are in ideology and not just care about skin colour.

 

Just disgusting with this prejudice.

I would tell you to go to hell but that's probably too raw a place for you to handle... Therefore, you sir, can go straight to heck!

Anyway, I just watched one of duck360's ACI videos

 

That was your first mistake.

 

To be fair, though, I've been feeling like playing again. Good thing that I can't, as I don't have a PS3 since Nov 2014. It just makes no bloody sense. Through emulation and my 360 I have almost every single other AC at the tip of my fingers, and yet I can't scratch the itch. Maybe it's because I'm falling for the one mistake that I didn't when I was playing - wanting way too much stuff, specially now that I see almost all of it is easily available through tickers or low medal requirements. Bloody hell I want that turbo Draken. Or to level the F-15C Cipher I criminally never touched because I simply didn't have the need nor funds. Of course then I'll just fall into a critical lack of dosh, as I did back then as an (almost) free player, I'm just forgetting the rules. Then again I do see people getting three fucking million on a black raid when the 4M struggle for my lv. 15 Gripen felt loooooong, so I dunno how that stands today.

 

Or maybe I just reaaaaally miss that glorious Gripen and stomping it allowed on high tiers. They did mention some sort of customization or progress in AC7, looking forward to that - because after both AH and ACI allowed low tiers to shine brightly, it'd be a shame to go back to a shitty hard meta.

Who knows.  I definitely don't.

So I just happened to watch one of Val's videos and noticed he that he was getting more credits than me, so I looked things up on gwiki and apparently pistons get a 50% bonus to credits from score in RTDM.

So firstly, what the fuck is with that? And secondly, why the fuck is that secret? If they get a bonus then the game should tell you! It's not relevant to me since it wouldn't make up for the extra credits from having max slots that some of my other planes have, but I still would have liked knowing! Fucking Namco, man.

 

Oh, now that I look they get a bonus to tournament points too. It's only small, but they still get it. What is this shit? They shouldn't have been in the game in the first place, but now you give them unfair bonuses just because as well? Who thought this was a good idea!?

Now it aint a secret anymore. I will have a look at it for myself. Pistons dont make sense in San Diego. Maybe that is why they get bonus.

It's because pistons were a shit idea so they make more cash to make up for them. :^)

I noticed that last RTDM, so I maxed out the slots for my level 20 Zero and experimented during the weekend's stream. Crashing with a piston is forgiving since I still get more than I would with a jet.

So who among you is ballsy enough to take on the B-2A Spirit Challenge?

Props do just fine on Tokyo though (although I was in a free-fire room so we weren't doing the peacenik aerial ballet)... If I had any other reason to play RTDM other than the free fuel cans, I'd do nothing but props...

Now you start to understand why Namco pisses me off to no end, right?  -_-

I noticed a lot of people flying pistons, so I guess a few people knew about this credit bonus. I had no idea. I'll keep flying my jets anyway, thanks.

It's international women's day today so of course media is telling us about the gender pay gap. If they only knew about the piston pay gap...

They're one of the best choices on Tokyo, really. They have really good acceleration at high levels, they handle really well, and they're tiny so they're slightly easier to avoid crashing with when you need to fly through buildings. They didn't need a bonus. I guess the idea is to make them better so people will have a reason buy fuel to level and use them, but in that case it might have helped to actually say they got a bonus instead of keeping it a secret.

And you complain about literally everything, so whatever. You get 2m credits as a drop and you complain about it. Like come on.

 

Also, I should probably mention that score rewards have diminishing returns the higher you get, and are capped at 29049 credits for 150000 points (or 43574 credits if you're using a piston). You should still try for higher since that gets you more tournament/slot points, but going above 150k won't get you any more credits directly. So yeah, just putting that out there. Even though it's too late because nobody cares about this game anymore. I should probably quit too.
