Pro-tip, on a lot of maps, the 190s are at the rear fields.

 

LOL..I was about to type the same thing in response, but see you beat me too it.

If you're going to play this server don't bother buying the FW 190 A3 as they don't allow its use in most maps, what's worse is this about the only server that has a decent amount of players in it. Waste of money.

The maps are built around timeframes, having a 190 show up in a map based around 1942 aircraft makes no sense either historically or from a gameplay standpoint.

The sad truth is badwolf is just a troll trying to manufacture controversy where there is none. He started a separate thread on the matter and got flamed pretty hard. It has since been removed by a Mod.

 

I sent him a welcome PM and explained a few things. I see it has been read but he did not reply and he has not posted anything (conciliatory or otherwise) since being confronted with the facts.

 

I'm sure he is pounding his keyboard and flaming the game in a bicycle forum right about now. Oh, well. You can't win them all (over).

If the argument against expanding to the Western Front is simply the Luftwaffe was overwhelmed and defeated then there is absolutely no reason to ever go back to the late war Eastern Front either.

I doubt you are being kicked for ping - mine is typically ~370ms. Perhaps you are instead experiencing high packet loss. MP games use UDP so there is no retransmission when packets are lost and too many dropped packets makes it impossible for the server to keep you and others reasonably synchronised.

do you know a way for me to check why im getting kicked then and look for a solution?

the funny thing is that when i originaly bought the game, it wasnt a problem.

So my two cents, AAA is way to accurate, some objectives seem to stay no matter how much dmg you do to them, i.e. bridges, I've knocked them out, disabled any travel that could cross them but they remain active as if they haven't been touched. What the hell does it take to disable a damn bridge? Some objective have such poor dmg modeling that you can't tell which ones have been knocked out, and they are placed so close to builds that do nothing to advance the objective that unless you know every location and building by heart its a total guessing game as to which buildings need to be hit.

Tonight I played a Kuban map with a ju-52 mission, thank you! Please consider using this plane in more missions.

More importantly, can we not get points for dropping paratroops? I flew an hour tonight on one mission to drop troops on top of a mountain... for zero points. It was great fun but obviously it should count for something.

Would need support from the actual game implementation side.

Hi, 

 

Yesterbay I was flying on a Veliki Luki winter map, with 109G2 and 190 A3 and A5 on German side (so a 42-43 planeset). 

I dont remember the name of the map but there was an russian airfield objective near the german Isocha AF.

 

The story is that I dragged 3 or 4 ennemies aircrafts over Isocha AF, counting on the flak to handle them. But, after few minuts of dogfighting right over the AF, none of my opponents have been hit by the flak (or may be lightly, but not enough to help me). 

Not a big deal, but I just think it's abnormal that my opponents could stay for long minuts (almost 5) over the AF without being disturbed/damaged by the flak.

Hey guys

Are the maps randomized or rotated in order? 

Would be nice if the massive maps are restricted to populated player times only. 

Very quickly numbers drop off when the massive maps are playing with less than 20 guys on. 

Cheers

After a while they have solved the bombers problem now all bombers are ace.

As for the AAA I don't think there are problems, for all the red and blue targets some seem to have the same settings (some high others low).
I don't know about Kuban maps and anyway I haven't checked...

Gagarin,

 

I don't like making this post, but I feel that things have gotten completely out of hand with a particular player.  There is a player named 'Krisu' who for weeks and months has been Spamming the chat, and it is getting on a lot of people's nerves.  He has been asked countless times, by numerous people, to please stop, but he continues to do it, night after night.  I know that we can hide the chat, but we shouldn't have to do that, because the chat window also contains important information.  Tonight he even used offensive racial eptithets, and that's when I decided it was time to refer him to the WoL administration.  Please look into this matter.

Kind sir,

 

Krisu's behaviour on the server has been a serious problem recently. Iceworm's account of his misconduct is accurate. He needs a temporary ban, to have some time to think about his behaviour on the server and how it affects others. Nobody wants to see that awful codswallop consistently spammed on chat- it has bothered almost everyone, time after time. He has also used fowl language which as far as I'm aware is an offence against the server rules.

To clarify, on the last map I encountered him, I voted to ban him after he used a very unnaceptable racial slur (in English, we refer to it as the 'N word').  That is just one map!  In previous maps, over the last several weeks, he has typically typed in many dozens of messages, many of which a large number of players find distracting, distasteful, offensive, and definitely trollish.  Requsts for him to stop doing this, even polite requests, have acheived no results, and have typically only worsened his behavior.

 

In any case, thank you for monitoring the situation.  Perhaps it will achieve the desired purpose.

Agree he is annoying so I just ignore him.  Not defending him at all, but honestly he's just a classic troll trying to get attention.  Ignore him and he will eventually go away. I have found being the community's "persona non-grata" is too much for most troll-types to handle.

I did not see anything super offensive regarding Krisu. Maybe because he is one of the best german dogfighters offend someone. Just wondering. And it is true that some of the best have very strong personnalities, and bad temper, and get particularly pissed when shot down. It is the "ace syndrome", no one is immune. A troll is someone who does not play and is there just for spamming. Krisu case is not like that  he is really participating and very successfully to the effort of his team. He just needs to cool off a bit and take a cold beer. It is just a game after all.

One can be a troll and still play a game.  It's simply being an active troll rather than a passive one. 

 

But all this is irrelevant.  When someone makes posts on chat constantly about "how hard" their life is, or "you don't know me" or other BS no one cares to hear, they are trolling. 

 

I'll be even more blunt:  Passing this off as the problem of a bunch of guys with a case of butthurt and envy over his talent at ACM is just dishonest. I personally don't care if he's the next cartoon Erich Hartman.  Krisu's "mad skillz" are not the issue. His antics, attitude and behavior clearly are.   I'm saying the same thing as Iceworm, with one difference....I suggested to just ignore him. 

 

Kirsu would be best served by chatting less and fighting more. If he can't do that, then other actions should take place.  That's my two cents on the matter...

Gents,

 

Rule 7 clearly stats "Comments containing profanity, personal insults, accusations of cheating, excessive rudeness, vulgarity, drug propaganda, political and religious discussion and propaganda, all manifestations of Nazism and racist statements, calls to overthrow governments by force, inciting ethnic hatred, humiliation of persons of a particular gender, sexual orientation or religion are not allowed and will result in a ban".

 

Now being a simpleton, I actually have a rough idea which words might be considered rude or offensive, however, I would not intentionally use a word knowing that it might cause offense and would certainly apologise if somebody called me out on it.  However, discussing what we believe is right or wrong does not really matter as the N word to some is Vulgar and therefore has no place here!  If the current 1950s Dam-Buster film can be edited to remove a name as to not cause offense, then perhaps that tells me that really it is best not to say that word in the first place!

 

I guess either play by the rules or stop playing here, it is as simple as that!  In addition, if you are not sure, don't say it or write it!

 

Regards

If there is a server where all this is allowed it will be very funny to watch a stream from it. LOL. For a while before youtube or twitch shut it down. LOL. I always try not to get all this too serious. People just relax a bit, nothing really serious ever happened. It is just a game. However it is also a sport and it is inevitable that the emotions go high at some moment.

 

I am insulted on a regular basis on the normal server, mostly in Russian. I just have a friendly laugh, I know I made suffer some guys and they are pissed. Basically after killing all AAA and shooting while they are taking off. They are pissed and they insult me. I am not talking about trolling but about clear insults. But I am never going to report them, Not me.

 

Still looking for pilots for attacking enemy airfields on wings of liberty. Much fun is guaranteed.

 

I bet  Rule 7 will not come to mind when you are strafed on the ground.

Flying the Germans is really never about dogfighting. Some do, but mainly for fun. In order to be successful actually dogfight have to be avoided especially above action zones. That is why I never train to dogfight and I find any dogfight when fighters meet head and turn after the pass towards each other as completely wrong tactics.

The soviet artillery in the north mas some static objects as German, so when you attack it it shows the "friendly fire" message.

This is complete and utter codswallop.

Sorry Korezov but I have to call you out on this bullshit. You can not shoot all the AA out on bases and then continue to shoot planes taking off- the guns respawn straight away on active airfields.

Not possible to suppress a base like that.

Was hoping that the objects between the spawn point and the runway can be cleared.

 

I ask after my plane exploded when taxiing to the runway because the outer tip of my wing clipped an AAA  gun when I avoided a wayward plane.

 

Note this was me not taking off dirty... but trying to do the right thing.
