I already have a Warthunder acc, tried GF when it was relatively new, and think about trying air RB out of boredom.
Is it even worth wasting time to find the joystick, keyboard/mouse just as fun or even better?
Competitive planes for a beginner? Especially interested in krauts, muricans and brexitards.
Feasible to start with RB instead of AB?
You grind ranks and not specific vehicles in opposition to Wargaming titles?
How long would you need to grind to get rank2 stuff?
WT has crews with skills?!
For RB and AB mouse aim is considerably better than a joystick.
Pretty much everyone has forgiving aircraft depending on BR. The Americans, British, and Germans are all viable. I would personally lean Americans at the moment as freedom .50s got a huge buff recently. They hit like a truck, and there are quite a few under-BR'd US aircraft. The only problem is American teams can end up with a lot of bombers at times, meaning you will be outnumbered in the fighter engagements.
Depends on your preference. They are two very different game types.
You do grind specific vehicles, but the research system works differently from Wargaming. You don't have to use the previous vehicle in the tree to grind the next one. It is more efficient IIRC, but you can use whatever you want to grind. Just make sure you use a vehicle within one tier of the one you are researching.
Tier 2 stuff? Not very long depending on how good you are. I find the grind painless until tier 3. Tier 4 is where the nightmare levels of grind begin.
Yep. You can upgrade your crew to "expert" or whatever it is called with silver lions. That gives you a baseline of "decent." The actual crew skill grind is pretty painless since you are only gaining small amounts of advantage for the most part.
