not sure if that is so much the proper MM chart, or just how many players in each pair of tiers is in the queue. i reckon things will still be fairly flexible for a little while. perhaps no more tier 6 facing off against jets, at least. also of note in that video is the fact that someone who has a lovely Thrustmaster HOTAS and obviously some experience with the joystick control scheme STILL could not manage to hit a slow moving ground target with any predictability, or in fact stay in the air at all. i know sticks are reportedly easier to use in 1.29, but a G13/G600 will likely be my preferred control method until it is of no overwhelming advantage (personally). i will, however, keep at it with my venerable Saitek Cyborg in some test flights.
