Perhaps this is covered by the rule that gentleman do not discuss their scores, as Willy reminded Bruno. Nevertheless....

What was your best score? I've been flying in WOFFWORLD on and off for almost ten years. I've never managed to get near MvR's 80 kills. My best score was 50, with a German aviator who recently died at the hands of a two-MG Tripe when a snap-shot took out the controls during a low-level kurvenkampf. My next aviator, "Tony" Michaels, died this morning, mortally wounded by the first burst from a gunner in a Roland. Yea, I had the rare advantage of height and made the mistake of attacking from above. Poor Tony! He had jsut returned from leave after being awarded the Victoria Cross.

Looking back over the years, my best scores were a few that reaching into the low forties. My recent score of 50 I attribute to the addition of Track IR. But on the whole, few of my pilots ever reach 30. Most do not reach 20. I'd guess my ten year average is about 15.

I'd point out that I fly with assorted aids, or cheats if you prefer. I'm 66, my eyes are bad, and I suffer from both blue-green and red-brown colorblindness. And I still have trouble reaching 30 kills, let alone 80!

So I thought I'd ask how well you are doing. What's your best score? What's your average score?

I always scored myself on flying time and sorties biggrin. The game world seems to have a way of catching up with you, and usually it's waiting for your number to come up.
But to your point , I think the highest I had before falling victim to some un-natural calamity was 64. These of course were "confirmed" , my claim list was much higher haha.
I swear you drop a enemy machine right in front of the Adjutant, nearly hitting the Major's prize hound with the who squadron present and THINK they'd notice!!
Turns out they gave credit to one of the new chaps in the group. Charity work! rolleyes

The career I'm working on now was started in October 1916 with an Albatros I so its been easy hunting from the start. He's made it to Bloody April of 1917, but i've had several
close calls (Near Collision, Forced Landing in NML after flak destroyed lower wing, and fleeing from 5 or 6 N17 & Spad7s running with some FEs) so i've been sailing the skies
with other pilots as I fear if i'm not vested with the time to sit down for a flight with him, his career might be over before he rolls off the field, haha. 55 Sorties, 33 claims with 19 confirmed, and just under 50 hours flying!

Another fun one i'm having was Pfalz Career starting in Verdun Jan 1, 1915. It's now May 22, 1915 and he's racked up 70 sorties with 94.65 flying hours!. And managed 1 confirmed victory!!
Much fun. Wish i had more time for lying lately!

I don't remember the score, the number of sorties or time aloft but I had a German pilot make it to the end! He started in late 1916 and survived to Armistice. My most recent guy just had a midair and burned. He had almost 30 victories. He was flying Fokker Drls... my favorite mount. I rarely get shot or damaged when flying those and easily out manouver multiple adversaries. If I get overwhelmed I just spin away. Most of a group of enemies will let me go so that only one or a couple of 'victims' will come on down to 'play'. They are quickly dispatched. I fly home, have a meal then play chess! lol

I’m impressed. Maybe someday I’ll make it all the way.

I haven’t been able to crack 20 kills and last more than 3 months. Presently I have a Pup pilot with 18 confirmed out of 34 claims with 66 Squadron. He started beginning of March 1917, survived Bloody April and is now flying in late May. I’ll see how far he goes. Another pilot with Jast 2 who has 12 confirmed started in September 1916 and ias closing in on 90 days survival. Mind you I have Captain Owen Triggers in his Be2c who started operations in 01/1915 and is now in March, so again just 90 days at the front. That would be the extent of my best score and career duration for my current pilots with experience. I have a french pilot and a DH2 pilot (3 kils) who have only been at the front for 45 days. Voila.
Cheers!,

34 claims? Then you have more than 18.

I play the mid-level claims. I once brought down an EA on my own base. I didn’t get credit. No one in my flight did! That’s when I turned off hard claims. Enough was enough.

Didnt Willie sat that it was a Sqn rule that gentlemen never discuss their achievements. , But He never said how many rules the Sqn had ? I do remember that I had a pilot make it over 50 hours flight time Then they did him in.
