  1. Just wanted to spend a moment to thank the TAW team, this one has been personally the most fun i've had in a TAW edition despite the limited (game) planeset on the western front, and i'm pretty sure when i say the feeling is shared by my GEMINI teammates as well as many other players we've been sharing flights with. I'm still of the idea that even with this small choice of planes (and maybe including something earlier such as Spit V and 109 early Gs) the western front TAW could be stretched to 4 maps reaching almost a full-lenght format, and as further preparation for the coming of BoN, but this is just my two cents. Finally, i would be extremely happy if there's any way to get some information upfront about what's coming next, e.g. to know if you're planning to roll an estern front TAW right after this one or so, also to plan accordingly with my squadron. I don't think i need to mention that not only (anymore) just us Italians but more and more people from the other countries are currently stuck at home, and at least TAW provides a very immersive way out of this unpleasant reality. Grazie Ragazzi!
  2. Yet another great sortie last night with 11 A-20s plus escort, thanks to Ala13, 666Giap and other friends that joined us. Great TAW experience so far S!
  3. Hi Folks, we at =GEMINI= are looking for some cross-squadron cooperation on this TAW (allied side). If any organized squad out there would like to fly together, we typically fly at 22.30-00.30 CET (UTC+1). s!
  4. Thanks to our dedicated escort tonight, we had a long A-20 flight and we managed to get back all safe. Bombing was right on target, but Dortmund AF was already mostly destroyed so we just gave a +5% damage.
  5. Hi McKinley, Well, we do not discriminate between a shot down plane with a pilot's death or a ditch, and we also stay away from chute killing. So the two shot down Dora i was referring two were E69_Hans_Luchs and E69_Chopo, both ditched during the action. One interesting thing, If you look at the mission log you'll notice that one of the HE111 hit during the first passes was then taken out by friendly fire, as the (human?) gunners of the nearest HE111 killed the pilot by accident. In the replay you can see that happen very clear, quite gruesome! Hope to cross you guys again in the sky soon! Keep the amazing job Tommaso
  6. We (GEMINI) intercepted that just east of Veghel, what an incredible experience. We engaged the escort and shot down two Doras, but then the HE111 box was a though deal, we damaged few but they kept going and we paid an heavy toll from their gunners. Great job E69, amazing to see other teams flying coordinated
  7. Will this Western front campaign based on a single map (stage) and full BoBP planeset, or will it still feature some kind of progression using early planes (e.g. for allies: Spit MKV ,A20 —> P38, P47, MKIX unboosted —> P51, Tempest unboosted —> P51, Tempest fully upgraded) ? I know the current (allied) planeset offering on the western front is not as wide as for Eastern one, but with a little bit of compromise on historicity I think TAW can still offer that progression which is, I believe, a key driver of its popularity. And of course it would be also a first step to be completed once BoN is out.
  8. Yep, that's the purpose of the binoculars
  9. i'm always enthusiastic with the work from LG team so I have faith in them no matter what, BUT the chance to run a single combined campaign that moved from 1941-43 in Russia to 1944-45 in western Europe is something that it would be painful not to leverage. It would be the ultimate european WW2 air campaign AND - as many pointed out already - it would likely solve (or mitigate) the current balance issue affecting especially the russian front. Allied superprops lovers would be forced to start with the russian planes and instead blue-enthusiast would move from be slightly advantaged in russia to be sligthly disadvantaged in europe, a perfect and even historical narrative there. Really hope you can give all this a chance to happen, no matter if it takes some extra time for developing and merging it all. S!
  10. I believe a "middle ground" between the new system (pre-hotfix) and current status of things would make most users happy. Easier to spot that today's (and the last 3 years) but not as insane as the first two days of the week. Compromise is good :)
  11. Thanks to everybody who joined the fight and to the TAW admins, as usual it has been an extremely immersive campaign. GEMINI squadron flew allied on this one, mostly due to balance reason in the EU late evenining timezone; in fact if we would have picked Axis (as majority of us wanted) we would have been unable to join most of the night. Our hope is this unbalance will shift when new allied planes are introduced. Speaking of which... is it too early to talk about next TAW? 😀 i was wondering if there's a separate thread somewhere or this is the right place. Is there already some idea if the next TAW will feature the bodenplatte scenario (maps AND plane)? The upcoming new content surely offers the unique chance to combine the two front moving from 1941-43 russian one to 1944-1945 european one, i'd say. Is there already some plan? Ciao!
  12. Great DD and amazing looking, both the plane and the map
  13. Guys, TAW has brought my flight sim to a level of immersion never felt before, and I’m really grateful for what was created and looking forward to the next campaign. I do have however one big doubt that leads me to ask to the creators of this majestic campaigns: Why don’t you run each campaign 2 times? Seen from my perspective, this should bring lots of benefits to player and creators: - players can enjoy the same campaign, if they want, from both perspective (red and blue) - players would keep playing TAW while the dev team is working on the new campaign, keeping the enthusiasm of the “fan base” we’ll alive - dev team would have less stress to work on the new campaign, knowing players have something keeping them up for several weeks (it’s not a job, but I’m assuming the sense of having hundreds of people waiting for your news is somewhat present) - the coding efforts used to create a campaign would be exploited and enjoyed for a longer period, which is worth for the amount of work behind it. Of course I’m not suggesting to use the same campaign many times, just twice, because the sense of unique experience would be compromised otherwise. Moreover, one of the main limit of my question is that I DON’T know how much work is required to have the campaign running, even if it’s already coded; clearly If running it 2x times would require lots of efforts, hence postponing several weeks the next campaign, I would throw my idea into the trash bin. Unless of course there’s some way you would consider using extra help for the “campaign maintenance” while you focus on the next one (and fly yourself, I guess :) ... ) Thanks for your attention, just my 2 cents.
