And I thought Tbolts couldn't hit...
When will full game/demo/beta be released?
         We're planning a beta release in the next *very* few weeks. At this time, we can't be more specific. Please stop asking.

No, I will not stop asking.

For some reason, that doesn't seem right, haha. You only have one kill, but you have ten times the score of the other team.

Its a known bug with Narc's.  It will be fixed soon.  Also, if your having trouble getting Tbolts to land, Narc the target FIRST!  Tbolts are not self-homing and rely on Narc/Tag to work.

Pro-tip: Always kill Gibbage first, he likes shooting down flying things... or at least poking holes in bits of our planes we'd rather not have holes in.

That Huit was VERY annoying last night.

Wasn't me that fell for the old "follow the fighter back to base" trick. I know that one VERY well  ;D

I was that little speck way way up in the sky that you kept blasting at, made it hard to hit you direct with the bombs, but I managed two near strikes before someone else got you and I went off to land and repair.

err. How can you fly a Sula/Shiva. My attacks always end in 90 % Crash, 5% Being destroyed by turrets 5% Crashing upun landing. I've managed to get the VTOL hovering and attacking turrets (with missiles and seldom PPC), i have never tried it on a moving target though.

Never underestimate us bastards in our Partisan or Huit Tanks ^^
'any kind of discussion of randomness ALWAYS WILL EQUATE to being able to critically hit a mech's reactor by firing a micro beam laser while facing 80 degrees to the side, shooting the ground, which would cause a random explosion which would randomly crit his entire team's reactors which would randomly cause the server itself to explode which would randomly generate a strange quark which would randomly hit the earth and randomly randomness randomfapp the shit fapp random!'

your not landing right then, land with a 10 degree angle up, enough speed to still have 15% control ratio, let the plane bring itself down and make sure that you have been traveling at low altitude for 10 seconds before landing to make sure it automatically put the gear down

Practice, practice, practice.
Know what the different variants are supposed to do. Air superiority, ground attack with missiles, close airsupport bomber... And then perform those roles and not try to do things your plane is not designed for. 
Never range into a enemy base or airfield as the base defenses will rape you if you loiter in the area... I get enemy fighter tailing me all the time on a return bombing flight and then turn to fight when I have the base defenses assisting the dog fight.
Landings are tricky, make sure to first line up with a runway, reduce thrust gradually with a good glidepath down to about 20% and raise the nose of the craft.  You want the wheels to touch first, not the rear of the craft.  Ones on the ground reduce to 5% to slow down and use your rudders to turn and move on the ground.
You don't need to land to reload, you can do so my gliding slowly over a runway for quick reloads.
