  1. Transport missions is an area where I think TAW could give some love in the future. I would like for penalties NOT to be applied to supply missions (which would make these players useful for the team, valid targets for the enemy and give them time to think about their mistakes that led them here). Also, I can’t wait for the DC3 to be available (C47, Li2, Dakota) so we have a balance with the Ju52. I would love to see more paratrooper missions to help the front lines and tanks, also para drops to increase the supply of those fronts and even stuff like retreats where we could take the supplies from almost lost AFs.
  2. Hi Everyone! Thanks to all for another amazing TAW campaign. I was impressed with the organisation of the red team, and those attacks with 10 to 15 planes to our AFs are probably the most epic operation I have seen in IL2. I was involved in (mostly failed) attempts to intercept those attacks, and they actually forced the blue team to start talking, which is a feat on itself. Best moment in the campaign - in my humble opinion - was on the end of map #1 when the blues were stuck in just one open AF, almost out of planes, and being forced to defend ourselves with only Stukas with machine gun pods. I will probably make another post with some suggestions for the future. For now, thank you all, friends and foes, and specially the admins who made all of this possible. What on earth is a radiator??? I am not an engineer!!!
  3. Thanks Kathon. In any case, after those first couple of days the issue never happened again for me. Thanks for your time and all the best. You guys have the best sim server on the planet!
  4. Hi Kathon! Today I was disconnected from the server on two different times but on similar situations. Both times, it happened when there was suddenly a very large number of planes in the area. The first a groups of 15+ bombers showed up in front of me, as soon i was about to engage a bomber, i got disconnected. The second time, a couple of hours later and on a different map iteration, I played for about an hour until we saw a large number of enemy fighters and bombers, suddenly i was disconnected. On both cases, my stats show the sorties as "in flight" and the last entry says "pilot exit". I have never seen this behavior on other servers or on previous TAWs. Cheers
  5. TAW is like Seinfeld’s Soup Nazi. Stay in line and don’t say a word or you will get us all in trouble.
  6. Still happening. Happens to me, i would say around once every 10 hours of play or so. It never happens on my first sortie after I login. Some times, I think I was just jumped by a superior adversary or was attacked from a strange angle. This last one, I suffered 3 attacks in less than 5 seconds, which means that he was right on my 6. I completely looped and looked back and there was nothing there. He got a head kill, so I got to see those few seconds of the plane falling down. There was nothing behind me or in the area. The main problem is that there is no warning of any kind, and now, every time I spend more than 5 minutes without seeing any friend or foe, I am always thinking I might be getting the bug. It is really ruining the experience. You can say what you want about War Thunder, but I never saw anything like that over there, and it's a god damn free game!
  7. Hi Gentlemen! This is my third TAW campaign, the first playing reds. To add to RedKestrel brilliant post, I was just wanted to say the biggest difference I noticed (and that is also truth on other servers) is that reds seem to play a lot more as a team. People talk more, inform more, ask for help more and team up on way that I only rarely see when playing red. So besides the quality of players, squads and planes which are obvious important factors, the team work is - in my humble opinion - the biggest difference in the red team.
  8. Regarding the Ju52. I absolutely love to fly it and I hope it is not removed from the TAW server. It is great for a noob pilot like myself to start navigating and help the team, quietly learn the tricks of engine management and go up through the ranks. Both historically and in game this is valuable work. They also work (or should) as food for the enemy fighters and be a beacon of action in the game as they need protection, specially on the paratropper missions. Having said that, I agree that it is an important source of unbalance between the two sides. The ideal solution would of course be to introduce the planes for the VVS that are missing (heavy bombers and transports). That doesn’t depend on any of us so let’s move on. The idea of allowing VVS to use Ju52 with different skins (let’s call them pre-war ir captured) would be a good gap solution if the game engine allows it, which I am not sure it does. My solution for now would be the following: 1. Increase the number of planes needed (from 60 troopers to 100 or more). Possibly more than one drop around the AF to be mandatory for it to be successful. This would force a much bigger operation and/or multiple sorties. 2. Allow the defending side to be warned that paras have been dropped and where. This way they will be able to react and attack the second wave, do a turkey shooting or patrol the area for the next ones. That means thatbthe Ju52 would start to really need cover, which currently doesn’t really happens. Hope this contributes for the discussion. Cheers!
  9. The manual says: “If pilot crashes or bails out over enemy territory there is always a chance he will not be captured” The question is perfectly legitimate. There is a difference between knowing that “there is a chance” and “what are the chances of”. Plus, yesterday I was surprised for not being captured when I was level bombing the reds airfield, deep in red territory and got shot down by AAA. I was under the impression that this only happened very close to the border and with low probability. So, I second Rammzess question.
  10. United Arab Emirates. I am sure other countries in the Middle East have similar laws. Skype, WhatsApp voice, FaceTime, Discord, TA, and many other smaller similar apps (trust me, the whole country jumps in as soon as some minuscule similar app is created just to see it blocked after a few days). And before you ask, using VPN is also against the law.
  11. I really hope the 4th point is not implemented. TS is blocked in my country. And I know for a fact that I am not even the only player in this situation. Also, why would TS be relevant to decide if a person is “worthy” or not?

  13. Hi everyone! I was one of the newbies making weird questions on the last few weeks. I am new to game and to this server and I found it absolutely amazing. I have a long experience in other ww2 flight simulators, but I was completely new on IL2 just a few weeks ago. What you guys did here is unheard of. I saw large scale operations working as planned, people helping each other, good coordination, and really good role models to follow. And I am not even able to connect to TS, so I was just getting the info from the in-game chat. I really enjoyed doing supply missions while improving my navigation skills, and support bombers on big operations. My identification skills are still not as good as they should but I managed not kill anyone and mostly fly without friendly fire incidents (yes... i would get very close to be sure what I was looking at before starting to fire, which might have caused some chill on the other pilots, sorry about that). Exception on a friendly - but unlucky - truck (i already sent flowers to the families) Thanks to all the veterans that gave me guidance and support, and to my enemies you taught me even more by shooting me down mercilessly (exception made to =19FAB=Fin who actually let me live after I begged for my life :)). I hope you guys keep doing what you are doing and, on my part, I will be getting ready and improving my skills to be more useful to my team on the next campaign.
