Default Am I being Cheap...

if I use the IL series planes online? I've heard a lot of complaints about how the gunner is too good, and how the plane has been stat padded (not saying this is true). But if I use this online in a dogfight or other game mode, would you say I'm playing cheap?

I don't really use it now, but I thought I might start, to get the Xbox 360 achievement. But I don't want to get a reputation as a cheap pilot who uses his rear gunner to get all his kills.

I wouldn't have thought so, but the way I see it is you are only as cheap as YOU feel, who gives a shit what other people think???

To be honest I see pilots playing IL serise all the time, whether its because they genuinely like it, or to score a few easy kills who knows, who cares???????

Bottom line; Play the game however you have the most fun playing.

Cheers!

Despite what some people say, I really don't think there is any one uberplane out there. It really depends on the pilot. Take for instance the object of the most recent gripe fest, the I-153. In skilled hands it is a nasty opponent in a dogfight. In not so skilled hands or if you know how to counter it, it's meat. Just don't worry about it man, people are gonna gripe no matter what.

I enjoy it a lot, fly what you want. It's my first choice in CTA so I can capture and then cover with the rear gunner. It's supposed to be tough, which is perfect for that game type.

I love it when players come in my room with bombers, I had a good time last night with some players from outback and the UK. You can learn tactics this way.
The FW-190D-9 or Ta-152 will make quick work of the bombers, come in from the sides, bottom and top.

Is the IL2 counted as a bomber in the game or a fighter?

To tell the truth, I do feel a bit embarrassed when I'm flying my IL2 and im getting raped from behind but receiving little damage. Especially when flying on Sim with King Jareth and Pedro the Goat, We usually have limited ammo and that makes it impossible for one person alone to down it before they run out of guns. I haven't unlocked the IL2-M and I'd feel super guilty flying backwards in a straight line just sitting in the gunners seat with the button pressed. Very little skill needed. I definitely wouldn't fly with friends and do it.
