Alonzo and the Combat Box team,
you have a wonderfun server, and I appreciate all your hard work. in my opinion, its the best server ive flown in the last 20 years.
a lot of suggestions are being put forth about making combat box more like the old spits vs 109s, or change some things so its like TAW, or WOL. please do not do that. you have a unique mission concept and try to make things as immersive and historically significant as is possible. if people want taw, wol, or Hazas spits vs 109s, let them fly there. your late war planeset is unique. keep it.
balance, for playability, is a different issue. german fliers are incorrect when they state that their aircraft cant compete with allied aircraft unless the allies are restricted (otto_bann, turban,others). this is simply not true. for the last 20 years developers have favored german aircraft with better flight models. they need to stop whining. if their 109k has trouble against a 150 octane p51, well, too bad. allied fliers have had to deal with inferior flight models for the last 20 years. german (blue) pilots only want to fly if their aircraft are vastly superior to their opponents. its time the luftwhiners suck it up and deal with it.
and since its now obvious that if blue pilots want to win, they can, why not see if they can do it with a little more historical accuracy thrown in. bring back all the loadout options for allied aircraft.
having said that, I just want to say again I really do believe you have a great server. keep the focus on late war missions. minor tweaks to missions are fine, but turning combat box into another taw, wol, spits vs 109s would just ruin the great thing you have going right now.
youre doing a great job, thanks for a great server.
