  1. The best servers for me are those with no map ‘GPS’ help, I think they are actually slightly ‘safer’ for ground attackers and slightly ‘easier’ for those with less skill (like me) because the ace fighters have to spend at least some of their time navigating, therefore there is a slightly lower chance of them finding and spotting you and maybe you will get lucky whilst they are looking at their map… but that’s just personal opinion. However it can be hard to navigate on the maps, continuously using landmarks alone works for many places, but in some of the Moscow map for example this
  2. Just wanted to say having the second server hosted by LD is brilliant and provides an opportunity to try and help/ease the issue with sides being stacked whilst maintaining your strategic allegiance to a side if you use it in a certain way.... The 'problem' with a good server like the Finnish one is that once you fly a few missions for a side you start to get an affiliation to the cause in acheiving particular objectives over time; i.e. you shed your virtual blood in trying to push back a tank attack in Sector 1 or whatever, so, understandably you may not necessarily want to flip s
  3. I think if they were going to change the rado commands they'd have done so by now, even just the small tweaks people want. Top priority for me would be to remove the call where you spot a fighter you haven't seen yet, but,... perhaps replace it with a call from one of your wingmen instead. So instead of ' Stork 1 enaging fighter to the east' it would say 'Stork 1, you have a fighter to your east' that way it would remove the splt personality situation of your avatar seeing what you can't see, and actually replace it with somethign resembling your AI helping you! Second
  4. Nice to have the second server option... yesterday it was actually stacked to red on the 1st server so I dutifully jumped over to the other (I'm too engrossed in the strategic objectives to fly blue on the first),...where it was stacked to blue and I was sealclubbed. You can lead a horse to water eh?
  5. Yeah, the point is if someone is using 88 for the HH conotations then they'd realise I'm not into the same 'club' and not waste anyone's time. If someone is simply using the year of their birth or they are the '14th Geoff' to register then either they may realise its not an exclusion, or they may of course realise I'm a picky so-and-so who they'd rather steer clear of; so 'dating filter' applied successfully again. (Ah, you mean 22 from my catch22 reference, yep will I'm not fussed if the literary meaning is missed; I've not heard of 22 meaning anything about Vikings, so will have
  6. I said late evenings Europe, so somewhere between 21.00 to 00:00 CET I figure is the most usual time. Merged automatically: Indeed, indeed. Don't worry you're not missing out on much. Ones like this I meant of course:
  7. Sounds like some kind of dating line eh? But no, I'm just after someone to fly online with from time to time, no need for an actual squadron with tags etc. Just a case of “if you’re online at the same time and feel up for it, lets fly together on coms”. I have experience, but am not greatly skilled, so I could help a beginner with understanding things, or, fly as a competent wing to someone already experienced/skillful. I tend to be online in the later evenings, European time. I fly on the Finnish server, Combat box and WoL, and I usually fly Red but only be
  8. People have different mental situations and needs. What works for one, doesn't for another. I believe forums, and games (especially online ones) have addicitive qualities; some people can give up smokng with no help, others need medication, some can quit whilst there is a packet in the house, others have to bin them all, going cold turkey or reducing etc. etc.
  9. I deleted my account as I'd had enough of varous things and it was actually a very cathartic process; it can clear your head out and give you back time to do other things that may not bring you down. After some time I then bought back in with the full knowledge of what was on offer but with lesser expectations from myself. Providing you can take the financial hit (which if you wait for a sale isn't much at all these days) there's no harm at all. And I think it helped me clear out the expectations I had going back to 2013(?) (which had become toxic) and be more pragmatic in approach
  10. Would it be possible please to have the addition of at least one official plain (green/brown, green, grey/green or whatever) painted skin for the P38 (and any others that maybe limited to silver). I request this because when online the silver sticks out like a sore thumb, the closest the P38 comes to it is with big fat id stripes on the wings and yellow engine bits... which kind of is the opposite of what I'm looking for with regards to blending in! Especially as a ground attacker, for me it is all about hiding, and my understanding is that the silver (unpainted) was us
  11. The good thing about the messages on combat box is it lets you know you are in a working channel and that the volume is up enough. When you just have silence its hard to know what is working or not. I try using SRS but it loads, I connect and enable the radio overlay, then just am left thinking, "so what are the things to click to just be able to speak to or hear my side?" What are all the channels for, what is the intercomm thing (I think it is called intercom, its at the bottom). (I did hear someone on combat box once but they sounded like they were on a real radio signal, not cl
  12. Got this yesterday at one point, and during the week previous. Other servers seem ok to get into. Nice server by the way Finnish pilot people.
