Darkpilot, I'm not comparing or doing any competition between one sim versus other ... just remember the time when we could combine tactics & strategy.
So let's take other examples without doing any comparison to any "politically incorrect sim" :
- Did you notice the increasing number of spawning bases attacked online ?
(People are now so tired of searching the whole map for opposition that they come directly over bases to fight.)
- have you ever heard an engaged wingman at >10km distance asking for help, you run to this area ... and nothing ... the combat has moved, but unfortunately you are maybe at 100 m from entering the bubble where he is, but you don't and you start opening your eyes wide in vain in front of an empty scenery
- Did you ever see abrupt contrail terminaison ?
- Did you see dots disappearing just like if it was disconnected from the server ?
There could infinite number of examples.
I don't want to see this sim turning to raging dogfights on hot spots only with poping planes coming out from nowhere. IMHO it would be a really nice game play improvement to extend that bubble. And if there are any consequences on performance, devs should consider using dots versus lods at >10km distance.
