You can have two weapons equipped at one time, one primary which you fire with left click
and one secondary which you fire with right click.

I played one match of the game; essentially fell in love with the simple controls and the hectic fighting! Sadly, now everytime i try to start a new quick match nothing happens. I click, but the game does not launch.

Any tips or hints?

Hey! That's great to hear! Means a lot!
Try waiting a bit longer, sometimes the match takes a while to load otherwise try running as admin or re downloading the files. I have not come a cross this issue myself so i sadly cant give you a more specific answer.

Hi, this is my first time trying out the game and I absolutely love it. Figuring out how to manoeuvre the plane in tight spaces is difficult at first but I soon got used to it. The gunplay feels really good (I love that there is flight time on all of the projectiles so you have to lead your enemy) and the map I played on was a lot of fun to explore (city map with church in the middle). I'm just wondering if I was playing online or just against bots? The scoreboard didn't really show much, and no-one responded to chat. Furthermore, none of the planes I was shooting retaliated, and seemed to follow a set path through the city.

Hey! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)
The game is multiplayer if anyone else is playing. The bots come if there are less than 4 players on the server and it does sounds like you were the only one playing unfortunately. Hopefully you will get a chance to play with some more people some time in the future :) There are usually loads of people playing the first couple of days of the play test.
