Great job everyone! Many thanks =LG= for another fun and immersive campaign!

 

I'm going to count this as an Axis campaign win, since we lost a map because of a coding bug, which would have put Germans on top at the end. Great job VVS just the same!

I personally would love to fly VVS, but flying against these Odds in a Ground Attacker is just not fun. I had two accounts, I flew 25 Missions for VVS and 95 for LW (majority on Ju-52) because the German Side had larger Squads operating, we had massive Flights of 10+ Aircraft in Coordination and could treat the Server almost as a Co-Op with little to no Opposition. 

 

We flew massive Raids in 52s, Stukas and 110s with almost complete impunity. 

 

On the Russian Side I was lucky to find anyone on TS speaking English, and I don't know what they did on there, because they would just fly Solo anyways and just have a pleasant Chat. There was absolutely no Team Spirit there. 

I found a definite Lack of Interest in proper Coordination on the Russian Side. 

 

And if the TAW Guys decided to Limit Players to one account again, I wouldn't choose the Russian Side for exactly that Reason.

This has thankfully become a bit better. Of course not at all hours of the day, but there's a slowly increasing number of people regularly using TS for the Russians, and it's not unusual now to be 4-6 people in there at the same time.

Well said Inkoslav. (referring to the long post above :) )

Well, there's the rub - when I flew (and many from my squad usually flew) during the NA evening, we often didn't even have 10 players on the red side, whereas on the blue side there were generally 15-20 or more. So we could rarely, if ever, have the luxury of large flights for local air superiority.

I do agree regarding TS, many times I would only see Inkoslav and a few others on the TAW TS, so the rest were either solo or on their own TS (which some of us on our squad would sometimes do as well). We as a squad were trying to utilize the TAW TS more, although the lack of subchannels could sometimes be a hindrance if not everyone was in a large coordinated flight, as opposed to hitting different objectives or CAP'ing elsewhere, etc.

Sorry but we can't. Have a rest until we finish our work with next campaign and this will take a while as we want to add some serious things.

Well to be honest this always motivates most so if you guys like what we're doing just give us coin or two :salute:

The lack of coordination on TS or even in game chat was definately a big issue when I was playing for the VVS and that made me regret having two accounts at times but if allowed again in the next campaign I'll play for both to balance things out. I had a really good time with Manu and other nice guys I met over TS like Rambo and Necathor when playing for the reds so that was definately a big plus. See you guys next campaign and thank you LG team

Riksen, DED have come up with a neat system about stacking. Basically, the points are multiplied by the friendly:enemy ratio to both punish stacking and reward the minority team. If this could somehow reflect either on a pilot's aircraft inventory and/or the progress of the ground war in TAW I think things would change a lot.

 

This is the solution

Looking forwards to the next run of the server. 

 

As much as we all complain, it was great fun and really gave purpose to the flights.

 

I enjoyed evading you Jerries and hitting your industrial targets from 6k even when the server was 18:2. :D

Got to chime in with this. Although I don't have many posts here they've generally been critical, I can also be quite grumpy on both TS (as Venturi very well knows) and on the Discord servers where I reside, but it's only because I like TAW. It is pretty good, it is the best IL-2 BOX has to offer as it stands, and it has enormous potential. I'm simply really bummed by that it lacks the "equal opportunity" factor, to a great degree because of the community rather than because of the devs.

 

Big thank you to those in =LG= who host and keep developing TAW.

Thank you guys!

 

I came back to TAW about a month ago. Although I'm an "auto-balancer" by nature and fly any plane/mission, I stayed with my original selection of VVS because of the imbalance issues and hassle I read about having two accounts. 

 

I look forward to Kuban map and the treats it will bring.

It's because you were killed on that sortie.

Is there a summary stats page that gives strategic level information on how a campaign was won? The frount page looks like it describes what happened on the last map, and the stats look like it's information on player activity.

I have just a trivial idea about the plane set. Could be possible to introduced Hs-129 in let say map #3 but restricts the use of Mk canons for first two maps the plane will be available?

Hi, thanks to all the developers team for this great campaign, Great job!! :good:

 

I leave a video summary, some of Ala13 squadron flight time:

 

 

See you in the next campaign,

greetings :drinks:.

 

 

PD:  the only point I see to improve is on the issue of balancing teams. Just as frustrating is to fly in inferiority, as flying in superiority with few enemies.

   This is complicated, since being a server 24/7,  depends as much on the time in which one flies, as the number of registered players on each side.
But something could be improved, for example by prohibiting registration on a side that surpasses in certain number to the other, allowing it again when both sides are balanced. (obviously restrict the change of side with the same account, to prevent a smart guy from registering on one side and always flying on the other). Trying to distribute first the large and numerous squads and then completing with the solitary players.

You want to have more players flying for the VVS side but want to prevent "smart" guys from having two accounts to balance teams when it is needed? I think removing the ability to fly for both sides is a huge mistake and it goes against the idea of having balanced numbers. You complain about unequal numbers but I didnt see Ala guys flying for the other side when it was needed. I get that you guys may want to stick to one side through the whole campaign and Im totally fine with it but at least let the guys who want to fly for both sides have their way as well ...
