    Love the new balancing tool. A soft approach that stops the balance from spiraling out of control.

    When the P51 will be available?

    I don't really have that experience you guys are all talking about. The only server I played on where you get unlimited K4's and stuff is KOTA. That's their decision to make. If they think that's acceptable, then yes, we have an imbalance in the planeset. But it makes no sense to moan about the way these planes in this !Early Access! title are released, if the true problem is not the release order but shitty mission design. Even with all planes of BoBP present it would be a ridiculous decision to put the 262 into a server without numerical limitation. It would instantly kill the meta and there would be 2 engagements: Engagement 1: Oh, this 262 pilots doesn't know his arse from his elbow and turns with my prop plane. Sweet, free kill. Engagement 2: Damn, this 262 pilot knows what's up, he keeps slash attacking me while being basically untouchable. Bugger, guess we're evading for the next 15 minutes. So a modicum of common sense will have to be present with the server admins for this plane to work anyway, regardless what's technically possible/released. The solution is simple: Don't play on badly designed mp servers and make your complaints heard in their threads in the mp subforum so they hear the public opinion and hopefully fix their servers or suffer the consequence of the server being empty. Problem solved.

    Yes, all the server owners will immediately put in the Me262 without hesitation or limitation and thus end all resemblance of balance and meta on their servers. The world as we know it will end in a whimper. *Dies Irae in the background*

    The necessity of realistic head movement in IL-2

    1. There is minimal movement if you chose to switch on the option. 2. The pilot is strapped in, it's not like his body is moving all that much in his seat. 3. Please no violent shaking of the head, that's gonna make people puke and it's gonna be annoying as hell.

    The fact that you even try to defend this boggles my mind. This is not about rules, this is about committing [edited] or not. There might not have been a law in the olden times to not shit into the village well, but people were smart enough not to do it anyway.

    Spotting. Please improve

    Monitor and graphics settings provide an excellent spotting experience in normal light conditions when you get used to it. I can reliably spot stuff at max distance for the most part. The devs have adressed the render bubble multiple times, it won't change anytime soon according to them. So there's not a whole lot to respond, really. "I can't spot well" is not really something a coherent response can be formulated for. Use the tips the guys in here gave you, they are valid and worked for me for a very long time.
  7. Goddamn, that's some quick work if I've ever seen it. I was hoping for "maybe before christmas" not "next day". Thank you Han and team! Enjoy the holidays.
  8. Nope, I talked to the guys on TAW and experienced it myself. Everything basically instantly dies right now. I really enjoyed 3.008 and I think there has been some issue with 3.009 regarding the DM or bullet modelling. This is my last sortie on TAW just now before I decided to run for my life and stop until a hotfix is out. As long as I have my life. xD The Spitfire basically immediately exploded and broke in half and rambo in the Yak, blessed be his soul, not only got insta-destroyed, but died on top of it. I know the holiday season is right on our doorstep but I would really, REALLY appreciate a hotfix for this...or just a rollback. 😆

    Nah, I totally get him. Must have been a frustrating experience. But a refund? After that amount of time? For the joystick, which is discontinued since forever? Come on mate. ^^ You know that's not gonna happen, which is why you're not writing their support (whis is whom you'd be adressing if you were serious), but you're writing in here. Some people will find that funny (me), some will debate possible rights and legalities or join you in your quest (possibly with outrage) and then the mods will probably close this baby right up, since "How can I get a refund I'm most def not entitled to?" is not really a topic people like on their forums for their own product. ^^

    Germany Lifts Ban on Swastikas in Video Games

    Last thread about this was deleted, was will this be, probably. It never was just about Germany, the same problems are true in Russia to a degree and probably in a few other countries, which is why Jason was very clear about this in the past. So don't hold your breath.

    Goddamnit, Luke. The necromancy was totally uncalled for, some things are better left to die. ^^

    And you don't think there could be a reason for that? xD What do you expect? Are only those who fly a ton, i.e. those having fun, allowed to voice displeasure with the last campaign? Also a way to avoid criticism, lol.

    Indeed a very reasonable request, thumbs up.

    I'll just wait and see how things develop for now. There is a reason I couldn't even motivate myself to register. ^^ With the numbers and the "interesting" changes to the planeset, I'm not really interested to play either side right now. I hope that changes further down the line though.
