  1. победа! Congratulations VVS for a solid victory. It was great to have 72AG on the red side this time along with great VVS squads like 19GvFAB, 2ndSS, 7GShAP, SKV and many others.
  2. (Stalingrad 1942) ни шагу назад!
  3. Great skins! Impresionantes Julián, y bien guarreadas como debe ser. Gracias!
  4. We mainly agree in everything, the only thing i partially disagree with is this: Unless you are commited to the campaign and take some risks, surviving the whole TAW is not a great achievement really. Specially if you fly only fighters, and specially if those fighters are the ones that dictate the fight -while having great firepower- and can escape whenever you want. If you fly let's say two maps like that, you can be in the top 5 with 0 deaths, and don´t fly anymore...and TAW will reward you right now. Nonesense! And i say it with knowledge cause i accomplished this once -an edition i didn't "oficially" participate- and won Kuznechik prize even without looking for it; flew 30 sorties and there i was, top 5 no deaths...but really did little to nothing for the campaign outcome. Again, people fly the way they want, but some approaches shouldn't be rewarded by a project that has a different essence; most of us here want to win the campaign and care about objectives while not going suicide mode ON...we agree that's one of the great things about TAW. It would be fair and better to award those best overall pilots. If surviving the whole TAW with no deaths is to be rewarded OK then, but it must have certain conditions, like a minimum flight hours, or participation in all maps, etc. That would be a great achievement. And please, no more real life prizes, we've seen this edition what some people is capable of doing just to win them 🤦‍♂️ Anyway, this is only one portion of that post written by Riksen, there are many interesting options that can be added, like the best overall pilot for instance, and other stuff. Also, i remember back in the day in il2 1946 =BY= squad at their "Airforce War" project splitted stats between sides, best LW fighter/attacker/bomber; and same with VVS, it was a good idea cause after all, your performance can be really "compared" to the guys who have the same planeset than you.
  5. On the server settings subject, i'm all for technochat OFF. TAW is the most hardcore server, i'd like it to remain like that. Also i'd like next edition to take a while and apply those changes before it starts, the longer the wait, the more eager people is to fly it after so many repetitive servers with fixed targets and no dynamic system. It's great to know Kuban maps will finally be tweaked. And also as current TAW it's about to oficially end (it ended for most of us after map #5 when the outcome was decided) would be nice if admins take into consideration what Riksen proposed regarding statistics and prizes, IMO most if not all (check the support that post has) TAW community is on the same page here=> Those Enkas or Kuznechik prizes should not be given to pilots with 0 deaths anymore; rewarding that kind of flying is way off TAW essence; pilots commited with the campaign flying many hours from map #1 to the end who sometimes get KIA are usually way more important and useful than guys worried about no losing a single virtual life and by this TAW rewards guys who usually are irrelevant or do little for the campaign outcome; again, it's fine if they want to approach it like that, to each it's own, but TAW server shouldn't promote or reward that type of flying. All things proposed in the linked post are great, and have a unanimous support by TAW community no matter what side people fly.
  6. Gracias Keko, es la mano artística de nuestro tovarisch HR_Tofolo
  7. Lavochkin La-5FN "The hun threader" (El enhebrador de boches) Made by our dear 666°GIAP teammate @HR_Tofolo and the generous help of the great skin artist @szelljr
  8. I went through all 32 pages...you are an amazing artist @szelljr. Thanks for your work!
  9. Are you referring to me? If this is the case then please read carefully my posts, there must be like 3 or 4 of them when i say i'd agree to tweak that rule.
  10. Happily i have time to fly at all hours, and until map #5 most of my hours -i'm among the 7 guys with more flightime at TAW- were during european peak times 😉 And as a matter of fact for me it is much harder to fly at nightime, cause there i fly alone, during the day i fly with my team. Flying alone requires a lot more concentration, one mistake and you get KIA...specially in a VVS fighter. Flying VVS attackers and bombers is easier? Then why you died a proportional roughly 400% more than when you flew Ju88s in big quorum advantage, with little VVS fighter opposition? Last TAW (LW)=> 147 hours - 6 deaths (1 death every 25 hours) Current (VVS)= 26 hours - 4 deaths (1 death every 6 hours) That's 4x times more deaths; so it seems is not so much easy flying VVS when you have equal conditions...imagine what is lke when you have a huge difference in serve rnumbers favouring LW map after map...i can't believe some people feels nostalgic about those unbalanced, one sided fun times. Pathetic. So no, is not easy...you know what was easy for you? This: And is not only me, or the screenshot, or others saying it...check what Siddy replied to your nonesense bragging, Siddy, a guy who usually is very spot on regarding his observations about TAW movements and situations...cause even if you did AF raids escorted by a legion of fighters, you were found very often doing solo undisturbed runs for depots...enlarging stats, nothing else: Siddy Quote: "You (Metalhead) literally fly nothing but JU-88 milk runs to depot. Ill fly 0 death career as supply general next taw just to laugh at you. VVS fly under manned, even this TAW there was 20-30% less VVS participation and it got worse as it went on. Not to mention the Russian holidays debacle. VVS has no luxury to ignore tanks and go for depots, as our pilots are needed everywhere. " Let's never go back to those server braking, fun for one sided only type of population. [...]
  11. I think is totally the opposite, unless we miss those 60v20 server numbers in favour of LW always stacking the damned server. The 3 lives rule was not for balance as has been explained, it was to avoid suicidal flying, and exploits like what xj*** did. Also helped players rotation. This TAW was perfectly balanced regarding planesets and numbers; similar numbers to blue and red all day; bigger quorum for LW in the European mornings, bigger for VVS in the American contitent at night times...what made the difference was the experience of the squads/pilots, being more the ones flying for the red side this time.
  12. Yes Meme man, i agree...and we are on the same page, check this post with suggestions i made December 25th 2019: I'll paste the point were that was suggested, the ammount of lives recovered was used as an example, it can be raised.: 2. Would be good to have the chance to regain lives when you run out of them. The idea behind it when implemented was that people try to fly less arcadish possible, taking care of your virtual life and plane. Some tasks are more dangerous than others, and it can be a good motivation for someone who comes back from a 20hrs death penalty to have the chance to recover lives and not just have only less than 1 back. For example, i would put the attention into how many CM in a row he does and by them he can recover X percentage of new lives. Example: let's say after you run out of lives and come back from the mentioned 20hs, from then on any successfull CM adds 0.1 to your live counter (except transports missions, which adds 0.05). This way you encourage people, instead of demotivating them. BTW most were supporting that post, except as usually @=/Hospiz/=Metalenko . Metallhead my friend you flew for the mighty VVS! Aren't you happy that we won this TAW? 😁
  13. 50/50. We all want opposition, but if there is none, it's up to you to roll the map over. This is true, but applying changes to attract a certain crowd that can be damaging for the more numerous one and the whole project itself is a no go IMO. Getting rid of regulations or 3 live rule, nope; tweaking them, yep. PS. @SCG_Wulfe @SCG_Sinerox VVS has already won this TAW, so i might create a LW account and give you some opposition at nights 😉 Not the best moment for me maybe cause now VVS starts to get better planes, but will kick some of your butts for sure and you can have fun in the process 😀
