  1. Strictly forbidden to shoot at any downed pilot in Ala13 squadron. But I have seen some people doing it, both sides, got killed myself, but actually more often by mistake (keep shooting while bailing) than on purpose. From here I'd like to congratulate Gemini squadron for yesterday's late night sortie, you were right on the spot at the right moment to screw our mission, very, very good aiming too. Even if you got shooted down you completely achieved your mission. Well done, hope we DON'T see you soon ๐Ÿ˜‚
  2. It happens sometime. they just don't say anything or don't shoot until they are very, very close.
  3. Hitting a moving target is difficult, but helps if that moving target is moving towards you and approaching in an steady form to keep sights on you, remember, if you can see the bomber inside your cramped canopy the gunner is going to see you way better, and he hasn't to fly or look anywhere else, just keep his eyes on you. I fly mostly Jabos or Bombers, most of the time my gunners shoot for a long, long time before I can call a hit, that means you have been in my range and sight for long enough. The majority of pilots don't actually realize (and recognize) that they spend too much time getting closer to the target, and in a bad angle, if you are a hunter and complain about gunnery accuracy just fly bomber for a while and then tell us about it. Bad approach and too much time, plus and experience gunner means odds are you are gonna get hit, from then, it depends on the type of plane what is going to make the difference between some engine noises or just a leak and RTB ASAP. BTW, yesterday I got a square hit by heavy AAA in my 111, over 6k RTB after dropping my love, the plane lost both wings and crew got injured/dead on the spot. This shxt happens, it's called war my friends! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Gone on holidays, see you next TAW
  4. Nobody would fly those planes mate. It's just too risky and that situation (air superiority and destroyed AAA) it's almost never found in Taw. I believe they should honestly force people to fly some planes. Ie: At the start of the map you got some planes, let's say 1 each and you won't be able to restored them until you crash/destroy every single one, and also making losing planes something that actually affect your stats and points in a way you won't just crash them to restore the Bf or Yak that you want. That way everybody would fly everything and at some points you'll find a bunch of stukas or Tu2s. Too many people get very little KIAs but very little "landed" as well, they just CAP on their zone and at the first sign of risk just bail in friendly zone, others just go berserk with their Jabos trying to get the max amount of ground kills in a fast pass and never caring if intercepted as long they can ditch at their side of the border. I don't know if you see what I mean. For those who complain "I just fly 110s or Pe2s", well, Taw is always packed in peak hours, so if you don't fly somebody else will, if you screw your plane at landing or get hunted wait for next map, it's only few days, you won't die.
  5. I see your point, but I must say. Flyings coffins with cannons? who's gonna fly it? unless you are connected at 6 am with no one doing CAP you are well dead before even arriving near the hot zone.
  6. I do. For those who say it would make it difficult for new pilots just tell them to get in to a proper squadron to learn the basics, and get experienced pilots to help them. There would be less ratboys as we call them here if they had to actually look at the compass or avionics more often.
  7. I've been flying Jabo almost all my life in IL2 (quite a lot), I have to say, flying alone or reduced groups it's almost always suicide, you don't need snipers manning the AAA, it's just maths, every single AAA would be turning to you as soon they "activate" and chances are, you are going to get hit. After that, being badly hit or just receiving few holes in the fuselage is a matter of luck, mine is the unlucky side mostly. There's a technique to attack in pair objetives capped with AAA, but it takes time and air superiority, things that normally Taw won't give you. I think requesting help on chat could kinda help you in your lone/reduce sorties, we always ask, and most of the time few people reply and try to help. Nevertheless it's not like planning an attack on your TS with your mates, but trust me, it helps having few hunters over your head taking care of possible CAP in zone.
  8. Please guys stop complaining. For sure we all have some things in those new changes that we don't agree, or we just think they are wrong, let's give this guys a chance, without TAW BOx won't be what it is now, (unfortunately) so let's fly at least the next two maps to see how it works and then we can get our conclusions based in real data, I'm pretty sure TAW admins take in consideration most of our comments if we can show some numbers t Now with the new rules we will definitely see who is a vulture, a chut shooter, a serious team and of course, who has the biggest balls to fly attacker ๐Ÿ˜‚
  9. Overall really nice server, me and my squadron had fun flying in it, thank you. Pro's: You can fly at almost anytime, and somebody would be there, so you don't find yourself alone in the server. The diversity of objectives, there's always somewhere to bomb or CAP. Most of pilots behave accordingly with the rules of fair play. Con's: Modifications, I mostly play as Jabo, AAA is extremely accurate and without modifications most of the time attacking fortified areas or similar is suicidal. Jabos should get at least double modifications points or is kind of unfair. People camping outside airfields, I know this is war, I know you should be aware of everything from the moment you get in your cockpit, but is not fun getting jump over right after taking of or when you just lower your landing gear, several pilots just do that all the time in order to get easy kills. maybe few heavy AAA around the airfield will dissuade them or at least alert the landing aircraft, as it would happen in real life (spotters) Fair play rating, I've seen pilots disconnecting after getting hit and when I had them on my Revi just to finish the kill, but also we had numerous disconnections due to last update and technical problems, there should be a way to recover your fair play index in that case. Proximity of objectives, some time they are too close to an airfield (and some time even 3 airfields) that makes that mission too risky and people tend to fly fighters avoiding these hot areas. Some bugs, more than one time we obliterate an arty and still "alive" on map, also happened to us with warehouses. getting ground objectives that disappear on stats.
  10. Hi guys! A couple of issues here. last Thursday my squadron bombed a Front Warehouse getting 135+ objectives destroyed, but during the mission not even 50% of it was marked as destroyed It's not the first time something similar happened to us, in another instance we bombed an arty, twice, then back again to straff it, we saw another group of 3 Jabos came and dropped their bombs, we sat our gunners in ground attack mode, and they didn't shoot at all, nevertheless to say the arty wasn't destroyed we flew slow and low several times with several pilots.and did not see any objective intact, everything was destroyed, Is that normal or just happens sometimes and we just got unlucky twice in the same month? Could anyone please tell me with whom may I speak to speak to recover my fair play after a horrible week of DNS problems? having 30% does not help much my squadron stats Thank you all.
  11. Basically; Front moves from mission to mission depending of objectives destroyed in the previous one. To replenish your aircraft, choose bomber or fighter from HQ base, no modifications and fly it the nearest base, land it and et voila! you got another plane in your hangar. You add modifications when you destroy things, and land properly in a friendly airfield, so if you take off, get some objectives destroyed and lands adds +1 mod, do it several time in order to equip your plane with few adds at the same time. Be aware, if your plane crash or is shoot down you loose those modifications and have to get more objectives to replenish them. When on cockpit on platform, during starting the engine, check your messages on your left, it'll tell you how many planes (heavy/fighters) and modifications you have available
  12. Hi guys. Anyone knows to whom may I speak to try to get back my fair play index after 3 days of fixing my DNS connection problems? I've got only 45% missing lot's of points and who knows if I'm gonna get banned for this, I think I fixed the connection today, so it shouldn't happen again (I hope ) About the "cooperation issue" We request help via chat and most of the time get some help (today some fighter coverage, from Germany and Greece) also, we do normally respond as a group when we don't have plans in advance, so if you see a bunch of Ala_13's on the chat and need fighter cover or finish some ground objectives do not hesitate asking, we might reply. Talking about shooting shutes, we don't do it and we don't encourage our new recruits to do it so, they all have the last word on it, but to us, it's not fair, you got the air victory, got the kill, it is not necessary in our opinion. By the way, In behalf of the Spanish squadron, Ala13 I'd like to thank you all guys for hours and hours of fun in your server, it became a MUST in our weekly flying schedule.
  13. Most pilots know at least a few words in English. Define your message as simple as you can. Need CAP 2235 please Enemy 2235 5k+ Need fighters to cover attack 2235 please Heading 2235 need help please That doesn't mean people would reply/comply, but at least you inform and sometimes fighters would read it and I'm sure some of then would show around. Sometimes is better to identify an squadron and ask them straight away. Remember that some time every squadron has some planning and objectives so they normally ignore something that doesn't interfere with them.
  14. Thank you, It does, I moved to a beautiful village in the mountains and got a not so slow internet connection but rather unreliable. I'll contact them and cross my fingers is not going to take ages to send the technician. In the other hand, is there any way to raise my "fair play" again?
