    Yeah, I have to say that anything else is on the current IL-2 online scene is just pale and boring compared to TAW.

    DD today?

    I feel for the devs. Delivering high-quality products requires an extreme level of dedication and hard work, and it always takes more time than expected. I guess we just have to all accept that and appreciate what we already have.

    I have to say that I really enjoyed the sense of cooperation on the VVS side. There were a lot of people in TS, and everybody was willing to work together and offer help to achieve the victory. Special thanks to KupiKolesa aka KK, 666GIAP and Cutlass. When I bought the game in September I thought that multiplayer was dead... Long live IL-2 multiplayer! For me the highlight was the very first map. The fierceness of those fights was simply unprecedented, and it was incredibly close.

    Indeed, it was my first TAW and I had some absolutely fabulous experience. On the other hand, I am so glad it is over so I can sleep better now.

    Historical planeset for TAW

    I think the planeset or the current TAW is a nearly perfect compromise between historic simulation and balance.

    Flying for VVS while being outnumbered would have been more or less reasonable if there were no paratroopers. Otherwise you are stretched out: if you guard airfields, cities will be captured by tanks. If you concentrate on wiping out tanks, which takes an enormous amount of effort and requires very good coordination to take out AAA and fighter cover, you will miss bombed out airfields and paradrops. So if you are one of the 30 red pilots facing 50 axis ones, what would be your choice?

    A work of very high quality indeed.

    People that complaining about the "advantage" VVS has with Pe-2, have you ever tried to fly in I-16 or LaGG-3 against contemporary LW fighters? Did you try to intercept a He-111 or Ju-88 in a 4xSHKAS I-16?

    Ok, now is the first time I (as well as many other NA pilots, I guess) have a chance to play the current map since its start, and it is already almost lost. I guess the only way to have any impact there is to ignore sleep and work...

    The numerical advantage of VVS in NA timezone was still there in map #5 except the last few missions. The difference between the last one and first maps was that LW found a way to advance so fast (paratroopers) that it could not be cancelled out effectively by the numerical advantage in NA timezone (no paratroopers). Also, LW can very easily grab back the fields they lost during sleep time. They are already damaged to 100%, so guess what happens. If you don't believe, look what happened from #216 to #254 in the logs I posted.

    Paratroopers allow much faster advance during the numerical advantage, which happened on map #5. If there are no paratroopers but you have an advantage, you still have to fly CAS missions which take a lot more time because: 1) You can still screw things up and get shot down by AAA 2) You have to wait for the tanks to advance which may take more than one mission 3) You need a tank column spawned to begin with While with paratroopers all those factors are out and you can do whatever you want.

    The first thing that should happen ASAP is the appearing of drop-zones on VVS maps/briefing and on the front page. I think it is obvious.
