I've been enjoying my Japanese low tier fighters and by the Rising Sun, they are some sexy planes!
The interesting thing about this map is that it is a Domination type but with only a single (one!) airfield. This naturally generates a lot of dogfighting right above the airfield.
My impression is that this map is a fun alternative to the regular Domination maps and I hope to see it more frequently.
The map itself is somewhat bland - few features to distinguish it, but on the plus side, there is so much action that you do not have time to admire the view :-).
Although I didn't get Bandicam ready in time to record the game, I've saved the replay and recorded that - this does show the map in great detail.
My game went alright, I managed to survive the entire game in my Japanese A5M4 and got five enemy kills and multiple crits. Top of the board so I cannot complain. I began by avoiding the initial deadly skirmish in the centre and went to hunt isolated enemies on the flank. Following their destruction I entered the central dogfighting, trying to maintain enough speed to get out when the enemies got interested in me.
At the very end my engine got destroyed but I managed to glide the few seconds it took before the game was won by my side.
Good fun, and I really recommend the low tier Japanese fighters so far - if you happen to agree, disagree or be madly in love with me, please leave a comment or a tip :-). It really motivates all blogowners to keep blogging!
All the best,
