  1. I've submitted a ticket on this. Perhaps affecting a small group of people whose IP has been recently blacklisted by a server/firewall update.
  2. Hey @makan84 You using Unifi? I suddenly can't connect using that, but can do using my Maxis phone connection. Have been using Unifi via LAN for years now without problem. Did the issue just arise for you? @F-Dog When you say 'resetting interface' what do you mean exactly? Back to default?
  3. UPDATE If i try connecting via VPN (Los Angeles - US) i CAN LOGIN to IL2 successfully! As soon as i use my Malaysian IP it won't login. WTF is going on?
  4. When clicking the green ENTER button, I get 1. Cannot connect to authorisation server 2. blah blah blah your internet connection Anyone else experiencing this? Is there scheduled maintenance atm? I always login online - about 3-4 days a week. My Internet is working fine. Flushed DNS. Restarted etc I can Login ONLINE in Rise Of Flight, and CAN CONNECT to Airtrocities and J99 Servers (Fr and UNK), but not NFF or Wargrounds (US). Location: KL, Malaysia IL2 startup.cfg network settings as follows [KEY = network] available_ip = "[object Object]" client_download_traflimit = 4096 client_ip = "" client_upload_traflimit = 4096 downloader_port = 28100 server_download_traflimit = 1000 server_upload_traflimit = 1000 tcp_port = 28000 udp_port = 28000
  5. Look at that! Awesome to see. Agreed. On Thursdays in RoF we found tactics shifted on both sides to more grouping up and flying in flights. It's good to see that taking place in FC now. This week I found that the more tactically aware enemy plus the cloud layer created a tricky, but immersive experience. That big engagement with 12 or 13 entente against 8 Central was classic, though at no time did it evolve into a messy furball, more like a series of deadly, cut-n-thrusts followed by standoffs and repositioning. A couple of J30 CL2s gave us a fright towards the end, recalling some of our classic scraps with their 2 seaters. Great flying all. Really looking forward were to next week. Here's a livestream replay. Unfortunately YouTube must have changed something (maybe related to the Kids content declaration!) and I had to create a new stream. So this one misses our first patrol, which had a classic moment attacking a Dr1 and Pfalz.
  6. @Zooropa_Fly has it summed up well. 2-seaters should be dangerous if you let them be. In practice I reckon you can only mitigate the danger. At some point he will have some sort of shot on you, it's up to you to make that the hardest shot possible for the least amount of time. Still, a single lucky bullet... But speed helps, distance helps, knowing gunner angles helps, evasive exits help. It's definitely do-able, but context of engagement can change the amount of risk you have to go thru. PS: I'd also like to know where I can get the flame-proof flying kit that gunners have.
  7. Greetings Gents! This Thursday Feb 13th we'll be back on the JASTA 5 FLUGPARK server. The last few weeks have seen excellent turnouts with lots of action, so do try to make it. All welcome! EU time: 8PM - 12AM GMT US time: 8PM - 12AM Eastern Time Stats server is here http://stats.jasta5.org:8000/en/ Jasta5 have kindly provided some comms channels on their discord, free for use by all. Flugpark Discord: https://discord.gg/h8MRmyN Our 3rd PG live-stream should be up by 8:30pm Eastern https://www.youtube.com/user/PaulLMF See you there!
  8. I haven't seen much evidence of chute shooting online. In practice as soon as he bails the victory is credited and attackers switch focus. Who wants to lose SA over a chute? Badly damaged EA are another story. The reason they still get shot up is to prevent death faking. Spiralling down to the deck spewing fluids and looking dead as...only to flatten out at 20m and make a dash for home. It happens at least once every week. Valid tactic of course, but as no-one wants to lose all their altitude unnecessarily, a badly damaged plane whose pilot isn't bailing is gonna get pummeled.
  9. Yeah I'd agree with @NO.20_W_M_Thomson. It would be good if Bristols were available in Not Metz, and that random Central field can go. On the early map Bomber Glory, i'm not sure why loadouts need to be locked, especially bomb load. But it has potential too. It's good to see some alternative maps that generate good action being trialled, and the FC community as a whole can benefit from finding out what maps work in various context with the plane-set we have. Thursdays, with a number of Squads taking part, are probably best-suited to maps that have some mission-based elements and require coordination of forces and reward it's success. But open night sessions do need to cater to all pilots as well. Thanks to the map makers involved.
  10. Fun change of pace this week with a new Entente defense map on JG1's server called "Not Metz", ie Bruay. And like the original Bruay this meant the Hun hordes attacking our ground targets, often with escorts and higher hunters from both sides looking to feed on the scraps. Unlike Bruay, Entente actually won one! Perhaps the lack of Gothas? 😄 Anyway, a great turnout plus the map style resulted in a ton of action especially down low. Looking forward to next week. Here's our stream replay with timestamps to action points in the description. Wolfpack345 also streamed the evening and his excellent stream is here. https://youtu.be/LxDIYLXZbAE
  11. Salute All, This Thursday Feb 6th we celebrate Waitangi Day flying on the FC JG1 Server! Times as follows: EU time: 8PM - Late GMT US time: 8PM - Late Eastern Time Stats Server is here http://stats.jg1.org:8000/en/ FC JG1 is currently running a FiF practice map but i'm informed that they have a surprise map in store which sounded great. Hint: "Not Metz" All welcome as usual and you can find TeamSpeak and Discord channels earlier in this thread. 3PG's TS is available for use also at US103.enjinvoice.com. 3rd PG Live stream should be up by 8:30pm Eastern https://www.youtube.com/user/PaulLMF Look forward to seeing you all there!
  12. Nothing wrong with shooting down recons anyway. They're the real killers, the primary targets.
  13. Yeah, we can take responsibility ourselves as well. Cock guns regularly, especially when enemy are about, and fire a couple of rounds when clear of EA.
  14. Explains the busy Front last week. Great to see numbers picking up, wonder if FC included in the recent sale contributed?
