  1. Last time this was considered, which maybe ~2 years ago iirc, the conclusion was that it isn't possible due to IL2 limitations but maybe @Alonzo can weight in on that as someone with more knowledge about these kind of things. But even when you have a 4h mission i think a 40min flight to the frontline is excessive. I know some Bomber blokes already do these long missions but it's just not for me.
  2. I highly doubt the 10% limitation will do anything. 4-5 players with 262s are still way too many for a single mission. In my opinion even 1 is too much because certain people will abuse the shit out of it but i already go for a compromise. 262s were always outnumbered so i think it would be reasonable to not make them available when axis got the number advantage. While this was general the case with the luftwaffe, i think it would be a nice way to balance out the 262s unique feature of being untouchable and basically immune to AA thanks to the AI. In terms of P-51 150 oct. fuel i think it would make much more sense to create an airspawn in the north west to simulate them coming from england than making them fly for 40 minutes just to arrive at the frontline in a mission that lasts just 2h.
  3. @-=PHX=-SuperEtendard concerning the 10% availability of the 262, i still think that in addition to that it should be unavailable if the the axis team is outnumbering allies by 5 or more players and only be available after 15 min into the mission. Concerning the 150 oct. fuel P-51 i hope you don't mean the very rear airfields but simply "not frontline" airfields?
  4. Without trying to take anything away from your great result, this was probably the best circumstances for achieving it. Most high kill streaks ended sooner rather than later due to rear gunners. The A-20 was the only aircraft on allied side that has them and they are for some reason the worst in the game. Also P-38s and P-47s were flown a lot which have one of the weakest damage models in the game right now and are a mismatch against G-14s and up. Props to you however that you have flown till the end of the campaign and not stopped in fear of risking the streak!
  5. Your obvious nonsense aside, this TAW was meant to be a test and not a real campaign and most people treated it that way. So i don't really get your whole tantrum because the TAW devs want feedback.
  6. This just shows how little experience you have flying red. Being outnumbered as blue is a very different story than being outnumbered as red, mainly because reds usually have inferior planes and can't decide when to pick a fight.
  7. Might be because people play games because they want to enjoy themselves 🤔 I wonder what your "tenacity" would look like when you would be playing on red side. It is always easy to judge when you only fly on one side.
  8. How about not making the 262 available if Axis are outnumbering Allied players by more than 5?
  9. Considering that this is a playtest of the campaign, i think we can judge fairly well that the last map with the 262 is very problematic and always will be as long as it is in the campaign. I can totally understand that people want it there because it was flown in that time but in my opinion it adds more problems than positives. I don't have to remind anyone that people will abuse game mechanics, the past has shown that clearly and the TAW devs had to put in a lot of effort to prevent something like that from happening again. I am afraid that the 262 is a beast that is not tameable. No limitations will certain people stop them from abusing it and therefor ruining the experience for a lot of people. Again, this is a test and nobody really cares about the campaign results but in an actual campaign i don't see myself and others i have been talking to play maps as allies when the 262 is available, no matter the quantity.
  10. Personally i think the P-51 should get 150 oct fuel even when they were limited to england. It's not like they weren't involved in combat over western europe and we don't have realistic squadron airfields anyway.
  11. @Jason_Williams can you touch upon how lift will get affected by damage with the new update in comparison to the current DM?
  12. At the very least you can't handle the 262 like any other aircraft. You want it in TAW then you must have a lot of special rules to it.
  13. Can we rename TAW into P-47 shoot em up?
  14. Mate, you got a VIP OFFER! Don't miss out!
  15. I also think that spawning tanks closing down airfields is problematic, not because it favors one side but because there is no way to predict and react to it. The thing that makes it a balance "nightmare" is because the airfields aren't spread out evenly (nor should they) which always leaves one side at a significant disadvantage. On a different note, what happens when on the 2 map types (offense and balanced) no players are active?. Will on offense maps the offensive side win? will it result in a stalemate on a balanced map?
