Tactical Air War

Recommended Posts

Guys..... Like I suggested last campaign. I think there should be some sort of pre-sign up for the respective teams to we can get an idea of how many players each team has beforehand.

 

Last campaign the Reds had too few players. the campaign before that it was the opposite problem. I fear there may be a be a knee jerk reaction for a large number of players to go Red this time since blue was so stacked last time, but that's just going to perpetuate the problem. so yeah I think a pre campaign roster signup would be a good way to gauge the numbers for each side.

Well you could start by making a running list of what squads have said what so far :)

So far:

- III./JG5: Red (usually morning EST)

- Hydra: Blue (usually afternoon EST)

- LG: Red (always someone around)

- Ala13: Red (usually afternoon EST)

 

Correct me if I'm wrong about the sides and times. This way we can keep track of all the large squadrons and avoid the mess the last campaign was in terms of numbers ...

Well I mentioned it because I noticed a number of squads on the previous page saying they will be going Red this time. IIf the teams end up balanced this time that would be great, but it will simply be due to luck of the draw.

 

In my opinion I think team balance was the single most complained about thing last campaign, and I am curious to see if any steps will be taken to remedy that pain point.

I mean how hard would it be to throw the TAW website up like 2-3 days before the actual server starts. That give people time to adjust and change teams if needed without being invested in their characters yet.

LAst campaign if I would have know before hand how bad the balance would have been I think my squad and I may have changed teams but by the time we realized we were already invested in the campaign and the side we chose.

I played several campaigns already and don't remember even one campaign where there were less blue players than red (at least in my time zone), but remember many situations in campaigns were there was 40 blue players to 4-5 red

Either way, I don't really see the downside of doing a pre registration.

ATAG is interested in this one, we will most likely be flying red with maybe 5-10 active players.

The Nineteenth will go Red but we only have about 3 active players for TAW. (evening US time)

 

PS- I'm really enjoying the dawn and dusk maps on the Coconut server at the moment, would it be possible to incorporate this into TAW a bit more? The lighting effects in this game are fantastic and it seems a shame not to use them.

Do we have any hope to start it before the patch will come?

 

I mean..before 01.05.2018?

The latest internal tests revealed that some things works in different way after patch but fortunately I managed to fix it. 

 

We will run the new campaign this weekend... probably ;)

Great work Riksen, now we know who we will meet in the server, haha

 

But you see, Only 2 squadrons can in action in the morning EST, and both in red:biggrin:

 

Maybe we can try to invite some squadrons in Japan and Korea to join the fight, like NBSI, 81FG, 343KO

 

Anyone is familiar with them?

I would sign up my own squad of 8 but at the time we do squadnights (Sun & Wed 20:00-22:00 BST) there is never space in TAW so it would just skew the figures unrealistically.

Its not really a signup post, just an indicator of possible numbers so other squads can pick a side and try and keep some balanced. I think if you have the potential to play you should note what your squad plans to fly, do they not fly outside of Squadnights times?
