5 star rating added to postings: Rate your favorite planes!


Exercise your right to vote

Per reader requests, this blog now has a rating system for each posting!  You can now rate each post from 1-to-5 stars and let the MSWM world know how what you REALLY think.

Where this feature will really standout is that you now have the ability to rate each plane in the fleet!  Just go to the table of contents on the right and go to each plane and give it a rating.  We should really start to get a good picture of which planes are the favorites.  You can also do this with the campaigns or any of the postings.  I will also review these ratings to use as a guide as to what type of postings that you would like to see in the future.  So what are you waiting for?  Get moving and start rating those planes! Remember, every vote counts! 

Also - don't just vote for your favorites.  If a plane (or a post) sucks, give it one star.

  1. I vote for the Liberty... It made many kills for me. Fast, nimble, deadly... its everything I could want in a plane :)

  2. My favorite is the r-94 achilles, even though most people arent fans of it. Ive grown to like it and it am pretty good at flying it now.

    1. i don't own the R-94 Achilles (very expensive), but have you armed your achilles with credit missile... Does it any good??? I have encountered it once, i have the liberty, i won 2-1...

  3. luggs, should start a tournament on this page! winner get's a spot on this site, by recognizing their name's

    1. good idea! I'll play..

      Metalstormwingman.com website suck's anyways, players don't even bothered to visit that site. Coz they know there's nothing to read and i personally think that site is dead.

      yeah metalstormforever owner host a tournament for us.

      here's my 2 cent's of idea for the tournament:

      all class (stocks or creds only)
      best of 3 single elimination ( if draw keep playing till someone gets the most win ) except green eagle, dragon and raven.

      weapon vs weapon class (stocks or creds ) same rules above

      survival mode tempest or annihilator (solo only ) (standard ammo) if other player's get the same wave of victory considered it as a winner too..

      NO BOOST applied.

      Delete
    2. I suspect that your a noob trying to make this better for yourself. I think that if its a tournament you should be allowed to give yourself the upperhand. Therefore I think you should get to use anything that makes you win

  4. 4th PLACE!!!!

    I think that the hawken and red widow are by far the best...

  7. anyone know whats a better plane??? F-105 Bobcat or F51-Hawken?? im leaning towards bobcat because I loved the movie top gear... any suggestions???

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Get the Hawken: it is free and it is one of the best planes out there. If you have coins, buy the Red Widow that will come out on on 5th august which is even better than the Hawken

      Delete
    2. Hawken is a noobs plane, reaper is a pro's plane of choice

      Delete
    3. There are no such thing as noob planes, only noob pilots. Reaper is not a pro's plane choice, the c-101 is. Reaper pilots (not all), are often pilots who instead of doing backflips over and over again like most weapons class pilots, just following the red arrow- and their only skill is dodging missiles.

      Delete
    4. Reaper - faster and more agile than all other planes so you could safely slip and hide behind your slow opponent like a pro :D

      Delete
    5. Lol C-101 is not a pro plane; it's a cheap, beginner's plane. Does the job fine albeit requiring a tad more effort to fight with compared to higher grade Agility class planes, but by no means does using it make you a pro pilot even if you win/draw against players with better planes/weaponry xD

      Delete
    6. You are wrong because pros face other pros due to a skill level separation. So a skilled player flies against others who are skilled so needs a good plane to work with. Stan the Man uses a spectre LIKE A BOSS. He is no noob.

      Delete
    7. Why thank you ;)

      Delete
    8. I don't see how flying a C101 makes you a pro...it's always the same...either we're all circling each other trying to get a shot in. Or we are trying to outrun each other to see if one can bullrun or catch the bullrunner.

      But I'm not a pro, so maybe they have some hidden tricks that we don't know about.

      Delete
    9. Yes, there are many hidden tricks

      Delete
    10. Flying a C-101 does not make you a pro. It's just that many skilled pilots use those type of planes, which are in the lowest tier. So it's C-101, F-7 and E-14 that are used by many aces, and noobs. It is not the plane that counts, but the pilot.

      Delete
  8. Hmm... Am I the only one that thinks the Stiletto is the best??..

    1. that's 1 of my primary plane in vs mode... there i rate it already! that's makes us two now.

    2. Yes, it's the best !!

      Delete
  9. I still haven't upgraded the stiletto but I keep going back to the Reaper. That's my plane of choice over all other agility class planes. I prefer the armor over energy. Ultimately, the best plane is what fits your playing style.

  13. I pretty much control the ratings of each plane, as I can vote as many times per plane/post as I want

    ReplyDelete
  14. I have a Hawken, Red Widow, Liberty, Titan, Reaper, Dragon, and Eagle x. My three favorites from each category is the Dragon, Reaper, and the Liberty. If I did it all over again I would not have bought the Titan, Red Widow, or the eagle x.
    I hope this helps any one that is waiting to buy the plane that is just right! (I wish I would have bought the Specter instead of the Reaper)

    1. I have every plane except Rath, Tigris, Ice Wolf and Green Eagle. I have to say that there are few differences between the same class palnes, it's the pilots of well-skills make them work.
      Each plane have its Strengths and weaknesses, people choose their favorite planes.
      I enjoy flying each plane, and sometimes only fly for fun not for wins.
      Recently i enjoyed flying Titan, it might be one of the best weapon class planes.

      Delete
    2. you are right, me too i own a lot of planes, i was a agility pilot as a noob annihilator to thresher then reaper. i was once good in flying the reaper then i switched to the sentinel i become good in flying this plane but i lost my ability in flying the agility planes. so i just pick any of my planes to fly just for fun

  15. Where did you get all the coins for those planes?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. From tapjoy, free coins offers or buying them.

      Delete
    2. Tapjoy too.
      I spent about $15 purchasing money apps, the rest coins came from downloading free apps.

      Delete
    3. I said it. Do you still have paid offers, ryanlin? I don't have anything anymore since june.

      Delete
    4. To Skyraza, i still get free offers everyday.
      There are few things that you might not notice about the free offers.
      Tapjoy is a U.S. company, it cooperates with many companies all around the world, but MOSTLY THE U.S. COMPANIES, and they put their apps on the U.S. APPLE STORE. Few of free apps are put on other apple store outside the U.S.
      SO, IF YOU LIVE IN THE U.S., YOU WILL GET MANY MANY TIMES FREE APP OFFERS, BUT IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE THE U.S. LIKE ME, YOU MIGHT ONLY GET A FREE OFFER PER WEEK.
      How can Tapjoy find out where you live? This is the key. Tapjoy found out where you live FROM YOUR IP ADDRESS. All you have to do is change your ip address(not really change), let Tapjoy think you are live in the U.S. And of cource you need a U.S. app store account or you might not download the free apps.
      You can use the U.S. vpn to change your ip address. I use free vpn like vpnreactor, easily sing up and most of all is free. A U.S. app store account needs a U.S. address and phone number, you can find out how to do it in the internet.
      free vpn : https://www.vpnreactor.com/
      One more thing, i have three IOS devices, this means that i get three times free offers, and that's the reason why i can buy all the planes. So if you have friends whom own IOS devices and they don't play games, you know what i mean....

      Delete
    5. And more, do not sign in Tapjoy with the same email address in different IOS devieces , you might get free coins one time when you download the same app on the different devices.
      Game Center account is fine, you can sing in same GC account in the different devices.

      Delete
    6. Wow, really really thank you for this! I spent all the morning trying to create a US account, but It seems I couldn't: It sais "Please contact iTunes support to complete this transaction" (where it asks for credit card) and I can't go ahead. Sometimes, I don't know how, I find myself in american tapjoy and I earn lots of free coins (a lot of offers aren't available because of my non-US app store account). I also signed up to vpnreactor, but I didn't understand how to make it work on my device. What have I to install? Have I to install the stuff on the computer where the internet connection comes from?

  22. I need some advice... what is the best defense class plane? I don´t have any defense class plane but I want at least one. Help please!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. My favorite is the odyssey... Its has the best defense of any plane imo, it has high armor and high damage resistance making it EXTREMELY hard to take down, plus a pretty decent stealth rating, so it harder to lock on to it... to top it off, its only one of two planes in the defense class to have added damage. I use the dragon for survival due to its armor regeneration,in that sense, it is the best survival mode plane but i never have fun flying the dragon in verses for some reason... In verses, the odyssey screams defense class in every sense of the word. Great fun plane to fly if your looking for a different flying experience in verses. If all you car about is getting to wave 25 in survival, then go with the dragon.

    2. I have heard good things about the Achilles... But costs too much

    1. I still say dragon, the GE doesn't have that extra damage resistance needed to survive the beginning of the later rounds when all the planes fire on you all at once...

      Delete
    2. THat's where the Armour Regeneration comes in. Much stronger and better. And for the aces, flying Green Eagle in survival is much stronger than the Dragon because of the Evasion, so if you know how to dodge with defence planes, it will indeed help. You haven't flown the Green Eagle so you do not know its true potential. But the Dragon is easier to obtain. Most people have it, and few have the Green Eagle without cheating or hacking.

      Delete
    3. When the wave first starts, The armor regen is USELESS when you got 30 incoming missiles ALL AT ONCE, and you WILL get hit. Not to mention, the GE is the slowest sluggish plane in the game. Made it to wave 31 with the dragon on stock weapons (with screen shots to prove it), I haven't flown a GE but I doubt I could make it as far...

      Delete
    4. Seriously? 4% agility difference between the green eagle, and the dragon is a difference hardly noticeable- and nor is agility important when you have 10% armor regeneration + upgrades

    4. This is why I hesitated to buy the panther-I knew that eventually, the best in class missile reload of the panther would become scarcely anything compare to newer planes- just didn't know it would be so soon. It makes me sad when I see a company, just wrecking a good game with better and better planes like the Sky Demon, which has speed, on the borderline of agility class. Meanwhile, while z2 focuses on making better and better planes. The hackers grow, and the lags continue. Now, the planes in this game just jump around, from spot to spot, like a butterfly- flying into the evening sky

      Delete
  30. It's strange that both Sky Demon and Firefly sharing the same plane number: 149. Perhaps Z2Live screwed up in numbering either of the planes? Maybe they will change the number for Firefly to something else?

    Fyi, Sparrow is number 150.

    2. Neither the design nor the stats look alike.
      Also, one's a defense class and one's a weapons class.
      I bought sky demon and it's the most flexible weapons plane out there (still not as flexible as agility plane), because it's the first in its class to have both agility AND speed bonus. I like it more than my RW these days because I get more opportunity to hit my opponents. However, I do feel RW has more damaging power with damage+crit bonus combo. I don't think sky demon would disappear, so take your time and think if it's right for your kind of flying style.

  38. Sky demon feels so agile for what it looks. Even though it's a weapons class, it's super easier to dodge missiles with its speed; however, it runs out of energy pretty quickly. I personally wished evasion was energy, because I can't really tell if evasion is helpful for my kind of flying.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It doesn't run out of energy quickly. It's only because of how you fly it. It has the same amount of energy and energy regeneration as the Reed Widow, Cobalt and many others. I believe that, due to the Sky Demon's agility, speed and evasion, that you will tend to use more energy due to those stats.

      Delete
    2. I meant to say it drains more energy due to the speed boost when you maneuver. I usually don't "run out" of energy; that was just an overstatement. Thanks.

    2. It depends on how u do it. Done right, u can have a plane with the stats of a green eagle, plus the tech upgrades of agility class in any plane skin you want. It's a trick that still works for me, and a trick that z2 will never discover, since they are too busy making better and better planes.

  46. How do weapons class ace pilots manage out maneuver agility class aircraft? We're flying in a circle, and all of a sudden, I see that my enemy is flying, up and down, and soon, it's out maneuvered me. How do they do it? It seems like they point their nose down, then pull up, and then down-somehow it seems this manages to out maneuver me. How?

    1. probably a cheater/hacker... they even out speed my reaper!!!

    2. U sure it's not just lag?
      Or it could be that ace weapons pilots probably knows where you are by just looking at the red arrow on their screen, or they check the "camera mode" that shows where you are and control their plane very skilfully. They see through your next move, so they know when to maneuver and "out maneuver" you.

      Delete
    3. maybe... but i had an opponent once he fly the hurricane i had the reaper. i could not keep up with him, he is too fast and too agile. then i ask him if he cheats. he said YES

      Delete
    4. I know they are not hackers- the question is, how do they do it?

      Delete
    5. When you see a plane goes up and down, then spin around 360 degrees on a horizontal plane like a top, that is a visual glitch when your opponent performs a "backflip" (swipe downward). You will not notice it if you perform this backflip, you your opponent will.

      As for outmaneuvering agility class, It takes EXTREMELY A LOT of skills.

      Say, I myself can outrun tonnes of agility planes using the F-7 Wraith - a Tier 1 plane that used to be available in credits back in MSO, but why? Coz I have been playing for a year, on a daily basis. 1 hour every single day, playing games after games.

      BUT still, if you play like this and in an agility class, you are KING. Agility class super-aces are definitely unbeatable - they're fast - they're swift in action - and they always attack from somewhere you didn't think they can reach.

      So, outrunning someone is no hacking. Just skill

      As for the "available hack" in the market, I guess it's only hacking infinite coins/ammo/credits. Perhaps the most famous one - plane hack. I don't know how to do it, but I'm surely not happy with it.

      Delete
    6. But how does playing so much make your weapon class plane faster or more agile?

      How are you able to catch a faster plane in what is supposed to be a slower plane?

      I've tried, in a weapon class plane and can't catch the faster agility planes. I've tried throttling, spinning left, spinning right, changing my angle, backflipping (which takes too long to recover) and it seems like I always end up in the same spot or sometimes compromised.

    7. Same here. I alway fly with mirrow on so I can see both, I noticed some skilled player flying slower plane and we both circle each other, he can point his gun and shoot me during the circling. Just like a car drifting, point the nose inward more then the travelling path. Any one knows how?

  49. I am very curious about how people fly weapon or even defense class so good that I don't get too much advantage against them with my fully upgarde agility class like reaper or thresher. I always fly with mirror on so I can see everyting, is this why I am not utilizing all the potential of my plane?

    Thanks.
