I already hate waiting in the queue for TAW (The connection implementation in BoX doesn't help this).

 

Even if it was just 1 gunner taking a spot instead of a place and I had to sit in a queue it would annoy me. Opening up gunner slots on such a popular server sounds like a bad idea.

 

You could say the gunner would be flying anyway so the space would be the same, but a guy in a plane is 10x more useful than a guy in a gunner seat.

 

Navigation isn't that hard, and if you are in a flight of 2 3 or 4 you have up to 8 eyes already guiding you, no need for someone to be in a gunner position navigating.

 

Don't get me wrong, gunner position being available is cool (Like it is on Coco server) and I would use it, I just dont think its right for TAW.

 

 

I didn't even think about this.  I agree 100%.

We are a large group of 10 12 pilots that we met Tuesday and Thursday and we have many difficulties to enter all we always have colleagues waiting for someone to run out of airplanes and leave the server if you have the opportunity to continue flying gunner will not leave that's never my opinion will occupy an unnecessary slot

I also belong to a large squad that has trouble getting into servers.   I would love it if after losing my last A20 I could jump into  a  squadmates A20 and still take part in the next sortie but not if it makes it harder for me to get into TAW in the first place.   If gunners did not take up slots then it is  great idea.

Then nothing would speak against gunners. Actually I would prefer this, since we wouldn't have those disgusting AI gunners. But a gunner right now means that another Bomber/fighter is not flying.

Hey guys it's already hard enough to get on TAW when it's online and adding gunner slots will just effectively remove planes and maybe some dudes who don't even want to fly will block some for those of us who want to fly.

I think it's fine as it is.

A human gunner deprives another person of flying. However, if it was possible to have humans as gunners on a quiet time as opposed to a busy period, that would be great but...I wouldn't think that that would be possible.

The Nineteenth will go Red!

 

So help me God, if Red ends up with more pilots because of the new planes, I'm going to jump out a window... (I live on the first floor so its not quite as dramatic as it sounds)

hahaha, sorry guys, I didn't realize that it is a rush hour in your euro time zone, usually no more than 30 players in each side, sometimes even less than 20, in my time zone, so if you are worry about the slot problem, then, I can take back my suggestion, after all we can not be selfish:lol:

 

Besides the III./JG5 will go red.

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.

I agree, it can be stunning and a lot of fun to fly in.

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 ;)
