Thanks. I've gotten into the habit of firing off all my rockets because while I can hit x to reload, it's one more thing to remember to do. Plus I find it's faster to just fire the one or two rockets than keep spamming the x button
. But yeah reloading works.

Lowgn just work on your turns in the jet if you want to get some kills. Fly high on the outside, see someone, come in behind them and just wait for them to go into a slow turn where you can strafe across them or wait until they come back at the points. Just don't let them know you are behind them. You'll get some easy disables/kills with the gun if you wait until they are approaching the flags and have slowed waayyyy down.
I'm colonel 6 I think. Just checked and I'm 38th in the world on jets. I took a break over the weekend, figuring top 50 was good enough. I missed playing with you guys!

yeah the one disable I had on a jet to I happened to be behind them and they were turning slow and basically totally exposed before I started shooting... when you say work on turns do you mean evasive turns or just being able to turn quickly with breaking?
Yes. Regarding turning while engaging, I find the most success in getting the enemy to turn and turning inside of the enemy, therefore keeping my + directly on the enemy plane for an extended time - enough to down a jet in one burst.
In terms of evasiveness, it's also important to turn sharply once you get going. Though my favorite evasive maneuver is spiraling towards the ground and pulling up at the last second. A little dangerous but fun when it works
. Always remember to stay high if you can so you have an altitude advantage over the enemy.
I just recorded a much better video today. Set up a tripod and raised the camera to eye level (or just about) which should make a big difference in the overall quality of the video...
