Keep in mind that with the way this game is balanced, anybody can shoot down anybody. If you can use your plane's strengths to get an advantage over the other guy, you can drop him.
I'm guessing he's seeing what I've seen. He's selecting a 2-3 tier game and is seeing 4-5 tier planes in it. I've seen this happen over and over again. I think the game is not only looking at the tier of your planes but your actual country LVL. I was playing a 0-1 tier and when I was Lvl 1 it was ok. When I got to LVL 2 but still flying 0-1 planes I started seeing Tier 2 planes. Actually this last game, I was flying a Gladiator (1) and only had two Nimrods and and a Fury in my hanger and was up against a bunch of Hurricanes. It's a bit frustrating when you want to fly against people in the same class planes. Then when you play a Tier 2-3, you get to see Tier 4-5 planes...

I should add that I unlocked the Blenheim MK IV and it's pretty tough for a Tier 2. It's way more powerful then anything in the US that's in the same tier. I shot down or more specifically, the AI shot down three planes while I concentrated on a bomb run. You have to wait for the A-20 which has more guns but you have to wait till tier 5.

There has got to be some sort of tier or ranking system they use. I swapped out my maxed-out I-16 Ishak for a bone-stock lvl 4 MiG and it put me into the 4-5 que. I would imagine it might be based on pilot lvl, plane mods, plane XP, etc. But who knows, really?

Believe me, I'm not complaining. I'm sure my tweaked-out LaGG 3-11 is a way better plane than a bone stock Spitfire. But a fully-tweaked Spitfire in 2-3 shouldn't happen, imo.

It's generally though that the highest tier plane sets your playing tier. So if you have a tier 4 Mig then you should be in Tier 4-5 no matter what tier your other planes are. That's to be expected. What I was talking about is having all 0-1 Tier planes and going into a tier 0-1 game but seeing 2-3's in game. This happened when I moved from LVL1 to LVL2. I've also seen it happen when I play a tier 4-5 and see tier 6-7 planes in game. So I think it takes into account your country lvl as well as the plane tier you choose.

On a side note, I'm really liking the Hurricane and the Blenheim MK IV. They're both Tier 2's but they are pretty tough. More so then any of my US tier 2's.

Yeah, those 8 .30cals on the Hurricane suuuuck, especially when I'm on my I-153.

The Hurricane MKI is a tier 1 has 8 and the MKII has 12 and is a tier 3. Both are way better then the P-36 and P-40 on the US side.

I'm making better progress with my British planes then I did with my US. I just unlocked the MKII and the Beaufort. The Beauhiem is a beast for a tier 2. It has one crappy 30 cal you control and a 2x 30 turret up top. The one rear facing chin gun is strange but effective. I've let the AI take down plane after plane while I fly and drop bombs.

I think the Brits get you into the best planes early.. if you like the Beaufighter, wait until you get the Mk X... it's a monster.

yeah.....I experience a lot of this as well. Last night I was getting shot down all over the place by P-51's in my crappy bi-plane. It's next to impossible to shoot one down, let alone catch one.

I don't know why but my plane, it doesn't matter what I'm in, always seems slower then everyone else.

Luckily, I'm not high enough to unlock the P-51's which don't seem that heavily armed compared to the Brits, Germans, Russians.

Unless you were in historical battles, you shouldn't be seeing P-51's with biplanes.....and probably not even then...

nope, just training up on arcade mode. I am a level three and I have something slightly better than the base plane.... but not much better

I thought the same thing last night while I was playing till I realized that I was holding down S and my plane was falling out of the sky

I'd love to see a screenshot of that. The P-51 is a 13th level plane. I'm flying 6th level planes (P-39) and haven't seen one in the air yet.
