  1. There are already people who have gone out of their way to find ways to cheat and bend the rules so they could be on the front page with tons of medals or to help one side win. Introducing money to the equation is a bad horrible idea. The way to attract more consistent players is to not view the other side as a means to get medals and awards. And maybe, just maybe, more people would fly if they knew that the pilot on the other side would be willing to fly with your team if the numbers were not balanced; instead of demanding that players from other servers join to fly because they are just 'turn and burners'.
  2. Last evening it was 14-2. I jumped in the server without looking at the player numbers, only to load the map and sigh. Came back in the server using my Red account - only to have to wait 10 minutes to spawn. More heavy sighing. I think at the very least this wait time should be significantly reduced, especially if we're going to keep seeing a lack of players on one particular side. What's worse than not flying your top choice for that day? Having to wait 10 minutes staring at a timer because you're actually doing the right thing. It's pretty obvious by now who the major factors are responsible for this situation. To be fair, they're well within their right to only fly for one side - this is just a video game. But to knowingly do that and then come in the thread and complain about the situation because it makes it less enjoyable for him? That's some serious cojones.
  3. As any good German pilot will tell you, that is an awful attack angle on that Peshka. You came in from 6 o'clock high and then kept flying straight right next to him with no evasive maneuvers. I would recommend practicing against AI in SP, and working on the weaknesses of all planes - not just the Peshka. There are plenty of German pilots who are very successful at shooting down Peshkas. Instead of coming on the forum to type out vacuous threats, maybe you can learn something from them.

  5. Thank you again =LG= for another campaign. I have to admit that my participation this campaign severely waned for a variety of reasons, not all dealing with IL-2. I will say that how the campaign progressed, and how toxic the experience has become - it didn't help my motivation to play. I hope that the next campaign finds a way to resolve the most glaring campaign breaking issues so the game can return to being more fun and less like work.
  6. The amount of sweat, tears, and blood that you've put into this I would argue is second to none in the community. Many of the things we take for granted in MP in other servers are because of you. Thank you. Best of luck in your next adventures! (I selfishly hope it has to do with DCS....and the F-14 )
  7. It's disheartening that admins are allowing this to happen. A big reason why I've lost my appetite for TAW.
  8. @SYN_Haashashin 21. Registering and usage of a backup (optional) account without the consent of the forums administrator is prohibited. Violation of this rule will result in the deletion of the duplicate account and limited access rights for the main forum account for a period of 1 month.
  9. TAW is one of the few things the MP community has done right. Xjammer and his alt accounts have broken other servers just for the sake of breaking them. He enjoys the attention above all else - so much so he even buys extra copies of the game just to have alt accounts to defend himself. He continues to show that he will always try to find any exploit he can to break the game for the community. You don't purposefully land at a neutral field for over 10 minutes to "use the restroom" - especially not with his history. What is to stop someone like him from using what clearly are alt accounts to monitor the other team? One could easily figure out what they are doing and land at a 'neutral' base to let the enemy move elsewhere before taking back off and hitting the now defenseless target. At the peril of being spanked by mods I'm just going to say it. The guy is a cancer and is precisely the kind of person that deserves to be banned from TAW.
  10. Hello all, @=LG=Kathon, it's good to be back :). Could you take a look as to why 99.15% damage to a tank does not destroy it? http://taw-server.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=2733&name=StG77_HvB We have also other examples of 89% damage and no destruction. http://taw-server.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=2681&name=StG77_Kondor Thank you - and again great to be back.
  11. After flying two great campaigns as Red, StG77 will go back to Blue. We've made great friends on both sides. The quality of pilots is equally high. I hope to see more Red/Blue 'only' squads switching sides every once in a while to appreciate a different kind of experience...
  12. Emphasis added by me. Couldn't agree more! Great campaign with plenty of ups and downs for me, but overall a great time. Personal records were broken, but best of all was the time spent with new and old kameraden/tovarishes. Things can get snarky and poisonous on this forum (and will be within 24 hours of no TAW ) but let's all enjoy this one fleeting moment where everyone is happy and there is no salt to be found! PS. I was going to post it separately but a big thank you to HvB. Not only did he recently publish an absurdly detailed handbook specifically tailored to ground attackers on this server, he already had the campaign highlights video ready for everyone to enjoy. The guy is obsessed...I mean relentless!
  13. I would prefer not to have the server be full of I-16s vs 109K4s by Map #4 - or 109 E-7s vs Spit Mk IX just because the Spit or 109K-4 pilot has the ability to fly more hours than you do. That's a sure fire way to kill the server. Not to mention the current CM method already does this by limiting the # of the better and rarer plane for a particular map planeset.
  14. I'm all for having the most realistic experience. The problem with this is simple - we lack too many planes and variants that are necessary to properly pull this off. In a funny way this poll is 'unrealistic' . It's not only just the Ju-87 that's a problem. We are missing so many 1941 = Early '42 planes that whatever is chosen is just as much a compromise as is currently available in TAW. At the same time I think tweaks can be made here and there (Blue shouldn't have the 109F-4 available for as long as it does - but it should be available Map #2 with F-2 Map #1 for example) but as a whole the current TAW planeset is a good mix of historical accuracy as well as balance. The lack of early Yaks, LaGGs, I-153s, and DB-3s/SB-2s means that a true 'realistic' 41/42 scenario will be incomplete and thus worthless. Is the solution really to lock rocket rails to the Yaks/LaGGs we do have to 'simulate' them being slower and more like their earlier models? Do we do the same with the Pe=2s? Lock rocket rails on them to simulate the slower DB-3s? Realism should be the goal. But we don't have the planeset of '46 to work with.
  15. Lol. You also crashed into an A-20 last night. It looks like you keep putting yourself in a situation where something like this is likely to happen.
  16. Hello @=LG=Kathon, I have a question about defensive positions. Is it better to completely destroy 1 of 3 positions, or to have all 3 damaged equally?
  17. As of right now: Allies (1179 players registered) Axis (1533 players registered)
  18. They have repeatedly stated that the tank DM is a WIP and will not be complete until the release of Tank Crew. We have to wait and see.
  19. The new tank DM still needs further tweaking. Attacking a tank column in TAW is much harder than it needs to be, and this is not the fault of TAW admins. A de-tracked tank is not always given as a 'kill'. And once it is de-tracked it for some reason seems like it refills a 'health bar' and becomes even harder to kill. Just try for yourself in QMB with different planes, 129, IL-2, 87 with 37mm, and you will see. To get an IL-2/Stuka in a position to properly use large cannons to strafe tanks in TAW was always a very difficult task that required good air cover, and more importantly AA suppression. With this new tank DM, you could do all of these things correctly, but still shoot at a tank that appears to be alive - but actually isn't. And in planes with very limited 37mm rounds, you have to make every shot count. You could waste 1/3 of your ammo before you just have to give up on the tank figuring it's already destroyed.
  20. Holy cow. Like many I stepped away to have a nice Christmas and then about five pages of cat vomit happens. It's clear the person in question loves the attention as much as a Kardashian. Repeat offender, not only here but on several other popular servers. Ban him and be done with it. His behavior clearly shows he has no remorse.
  21. I really! like the idea of "reinforcing" def positions and tank columns with Po-2. It will be just as dangerous if not more than ju52 flying into drop zones.
  22. Buenas 'Che I have not looked at what loadouts the Po-2 has available, does it have supply drop? My guess is no but it was used often to re-supply partisans and surrounded troops in the rear with weapons, food etc. If something can be done to simulate a supply drop that could also work just like with the Ju-52s. You could have designated 'partisan' areas that are hidden for blue just as the FJ drops are hidden for Red. The Po-2's can resupply these areas and if a certain level is reached there is a chance to capture the AF, or totally destroy part or all of the AFs defenses - so tanks have an easy time capturing it.
  23. The Bf 110G-2 Yes. The Bf 110E...No. Both are very good ground attack planes. Even the E is a very good bomber killer. But any VVS pilot that honestly has trouble vs a 110E, shouldn't be flying fighters. The engines and pilot are very vulnerable, and because of it's profile, very easy to disable at least one engine with mediocre accuracy. Let's not get carried away. It is a good plane used to it's strengths. But she's not a 'beast'
