Admin,

 

Just to say a BIG thank you for your server as I've missed TAW. 

 

However, I will be limiting my game play to when MK.MrX is not in game as he has an amazing ability to find a player even when at 6K, then dive to the deck.

 

 

Regards

Funny you say that..

 

Just yesterday i was honoring Hartmann cruising at 6.5k deep in friendly territory when suddenly i spot an IL-2 on my 6. You guessed correctly, it was our mysterious friend.

 

It is very troublesome that nothing can be done about it in any direction. Apparently there is no proof for the Admins to take action and there is no proof for the playerbase to avert him of any suspicion.

 

As for my own opinion, i and others handle the situation like you. Simply not playing when he is around.

I wish you could have recorded that. It's preposterous what the man is getting away with. There comes a point when people need to realise what is happening and read between the lines.

No, no they aren't^^ They are to fast on target and can do insane things. They are faster than the traverse time of the actual gun. They can predict if a plane is coming through their view in an unhuman manner. Split seconds. They switch guns instantly.
But I am not sure of lowering the AI setting will do anything with the gunners.

Someone tell that to my gunners, they dont hit a damn thing!

Sorry guys, I have to defend him. I got shot down by him too today, but he is one of the best pilots. What exactly is it that makes you think that he is cheating. Apart from rumors that have been constantly spread by butthurt salties there just isn´t anything to support your claims. Unless there is any proof of him cheating, I think we should be very careful about accusations like that.

If anyone brings up ANY proof, I will be the first one to say "mea culpa" but until then jsut stop it please.

Fly Bf109 against Pe2 flying straight, from any angle, any closing speed. You will see things beyond belief. Especially if you watch the track and switch aircraft view.

Looks like this is going to be a quick map - it has always been my contention that from a ground war perspective - this is more skewed in favor of Red. This isn't a bias issue - more of an equipment issue and game limitation. The IL-2 and Pe-2 have a much greater weight of fire than a Bf 110 and Ju-87 and better survivability when on target.

IMO is IS the fighters thats is making the difference.


Things I have noticed -

 

1. Russian fighters always seem to have air superiority over the majority of their targets. I have not made a single bombing run (Apart from depots) where I havn't been intercepted.

2. Russian fighters always escort bombers and attackers. I have not attacked an Il2 or Pe2 yet without being immediately pounced on by and i16 or P40.

 

I think the Russians were just playing smarter (Also they destroyed out depots pretty quickly while we did minimal damage to theirs).

Even when Axis had higher numbers, I16's were still able to escort and intercept every flight I've been on.

 

The 87 is a great tank killer, but try flying it anywhere near an objective and you'll be made of Swiss cheese.

So is it a gunners problem or a Pe2 problem? Seems like most of the complaints are specifically against the Pe2?

 

Why are the Pe2 gunners so much better than others? Is it just down to the amount and their large field of views?

That's the thing. They are completely random mess. Sometimes they are an incarnation of vasili zaitsev and the next time they are a storm trooper.

I wouldn't have called him out in public either because of that and in my previous post i wrote about the predicament of it.

 

Whats makes it even more troublesome is, that he is obviously a good pilot. However there is also a reason why there is so much doubt about this person even from many other good pilots who managed to shoot him down. He isn't unbeatable, he gets shot down quite often too.

ATAG_dB,

 

Firstly the name is Haza , so thank you for being that observant in just copying my name, yet you believe that you are observant enough to be able to comment on his actions!

That aside, my observations were regarding him finding contacts, so not sure how you are able to speak with such authority unless you were just following him, but thank you for your input!  

I'm sure MK.MRx, use to play on the ATAG server, didn't he?

 

Regards

Oh ATAG_dB

 

Thankfully this is not your forum, so less of the high and mighty lecture!

I would suggest that the insult was from you, in not getting my name correct in the first place and hence my comments regarding how observant you might be!

However, perhaps if you would like to PM me, as I have no interest in PMing you, as it would appear that you have the issue!

=LG=Piciu,

 

Not being a map maker, I have no idea how long things take, although I appreciate that it is not as easy as some might think.  That said, I was unable to bomb one of the targets because I was unsure of the orientation of the target and unfortunately I went for an airbase at 6K and was subsequently shot down.  Therefore, with the greatest respect and with cap in hand, may I ask how long that work in progess will take please?

 

Thank you

Why are the Pe2 gunners so much better than others? Is it just down to the amount and their large field of views?

 

The Pe2 gunners especially on PE2 series 35 (which we have now on current maps in TAW) have very narrow field of fire (except pe2 series 87 with turret)- The problem is with wannabe hartmans whose only tactic against the bombers is to sit on target six within 100m and be totally astonished that the gunners hit them...

 

Some time ago someone post stats from WOL where the best def ration against fighters had HE111 -16 the 2nd was PE2 series 87 - both have top 12,7/13mm guns with good fields of fire, range and hitting power so comming close to their 6 is even more deadly than other bombers - just shoot from a distance to get them or make slashing attacks from the sides without breaking the 100m range barrier

 

Generally as i wrote earlier - gunners are generally ineffective UNLESS YOU SIT ON BOMBER 6 OR FLY BY DURING THE ATTACK CLOSE TO THE BOMBER WITHIN THE GUNNERS FIELD OF FIRE. Just shoot from a distance ~300m and You'll be perfectly safe. or make slashing attacks from the sides without comming to close

What i find most interesting about this clip, (apart from the good flying)

is he never once looks at the Temp gauges, lever positions, rad positions etc.

instead relies totally on the technochat, 

Even though people say it gives you no advantage.........really!!!

The advantage is minimal. An extra glance at the temps wouldn't have made any difference to any of those engagements.

Hi,

Nothing is easy to do in this campaign - logarithms, mission maps, planeset, suply and tank columns, airfield pictures or other graphic contetnt also. We all are doing what w can, to get it work correctly, without problems, bugs and ofcourse delay. But sometimes one thing need more time to be finished than other, in particular when everyone has a different amount of time.
I can assure you that all pics will be finished asap, day or two.

Cheers!

The Techno chat defiantly has its advantages to just using the gauges, but also keeps the server a little bit more accessible for the more casual and less skilled players (ie:me)

its your decision to play without warnings. Not the others problem. And you have to check temps regardless. and he does btw. at 8:15. 
its obv. easier. But nothing to complain about. at least not here.

The name has to be exactly the same. Login and change the name

No joy although I've dropped the underscore character at TAW. What is the source of the lower login?

I found the issue. Your name on the forums is written with the capital i "I" while your name in TAW is written with lower case L "l".

All true guys, i agree with everything you said...... it was just an observation, not a complaint. ;)

 

All looks good to me as well.

I have no real appreciation of what work is involved, however I do appreciate the fact that you guys do this stuff for the enjoyment of others.  I would sooner wait and get the usual quality from you guys rather it being rushed, but was just wondering how long it would be roughly and was not wishing to appear demanding.  However, thank you for that clarification.

Admin,

 

I have just realised that your website stats update almost immediately after every sortie.  I haven't noticed this before and always assumed it  updated at the end of each game. 

Nice touch to be able to see how a flight went, even after Supply mission!

Cheater or not I don't know him, give us a proof I'l be happy the pay the beer. Until then it's just ear says and borderline crusade.

 

That's correct and the reason why i haven't brought up his name. I simply stated that his video doesn't proof anything in one way or another and that it is naive to think otherwise. However it is interesting to see how there seem to be only 2 narratives. He is either a cheater or a god.

 

In the end, there will be no end to the discussion. If you think he is a cheater, stop playing when he is around. If not, just keep going.

In that Mr.X discussions nobody claimed he is not destructable or anything like that. 

The claim is always that he finds you.

I didn't get to play the last campaign so missed out on that!

However, having real time stats is just fantastic, as it certainly allows me now to plan better if I need to recover CM points!!!

Thank you guys!

Gents,

 

I for one am totally over the moon that this video has attracted so much attention and "up-votes" and "likes" from so many players as I'm sure that any video(s) that will attract more players into this sim and even more into the MP area is good for us all in the long term and hopefully will generate greater revenue for Jason's team and hopefully we will get more Great Battles. 

 

However, having said that, it is just a shame that there are a few players who have mentioned this video or continually keep trying to highlight it in this forum, do not actually appear to be currently playing in this latest TAW campaign or indeed appear to have little inter-actions in WOL, which is another very popular MP. 

 

Therefore gents, please do not feel shy, as I'm sure if you are able to mock me in this open forum, although you might be from another forum, I'm sure we would all like to perhaps see you in this latest TAW campaign, as since the latest patch up-dates the game is amazing and the TAW guys just seem to be making the campagins better and better.  That said, we have a lot to thank these guys for and I will certainly be making a donation to TAW and would encourage everybody to do what ever they can to keep this server running. 

 

So please feel free to join us in this fantastic MP server, as it would be really good to see some of you actually in the MP game on a regular bases and perhaps you could wing up with MK.MRx in a big sortie and chase those bombers with him and perhaps make your own videos of shooting me down, how exciting would that be for you, hey!?  However, if you are new and TAW is a little bit too hard-core for you, WOL is another server, although that has GPS enabled.

 

 

Regards and happy hunting!
