what [edited] ?? f4 on the second map?

=LG=Kathon,

 

can you check the planeset ?

 

2nd map was all the time only with e7, f2, mc202. 109F4 should be not allowed there.

The F-4 is not available at the beginning and it's 0/1 after F-2 0/1 so it takes a while to get this plane. So far the F-4 shot down only 10% of the Allied aircraft, where E-7 shot down almost 50% on the #2 map. Is it really so big advantage for Axis?

How random are the gunner skills? Do they go all the way from crappy to super, or medium to super, or bad to medium, or...?

 

Why the change to AK scoring? Is it a technical limitation, or is it just because it is an "unobserved" kill, or...?

 

And one thing about the planeset: How come the Germans get the 109 F-4 on map #2? The F-2 is superior to the MiG already, and it's not like the P-40 can compete other than in turn radius and dive speed, even against the F-2.

Gunners are: 75% Normal, 25% High

 

AK scoring: it has worked like that for a long time so it's not really a change, but I wanted to clarify it. There is a problem with kill when a pilot only damage enemy then he lands and start a new  sortie. If the enemy crashes after that it's not possible to update the stats because the attacker has a new sortie and stats from previous sortie had been calculated.

Just because the F-4 was present doesn't mean that this is a correct way to put it into map 2. 

 

As it is now you will see as many F4s in the air as F2s which is far from reality because very few units were equipped with them. Of course you can argue that this justifies it putting it on 0/1 but in my opinion this is a slippery slope because it would/should be the case for other aircrafts as well. 

How very few? At the moment only 45 Axis pilots have F-4 out of 638  so it's only 7%.

Not quite sure if the tank spawning system has changed anything since the previous campaigns or if the reds just have been unlucky this campaign, but it feels like too many tanks spawn too fast.

 

During the first rounds of the campaign, round after round, the blue tanks kept pushing without pause, so there was no reds to stop them. Not when outnumbered more than 2:1 every round. It would be nice if there was a round or two's pause between tank pushes so that the defending side has time to do anything about it, or at least if they keep losing they aren't rolled over in an instant, but get some time for when the team ratios might change enough.

There was a strange bug on the #1 map after mission #3. Axis tanks were attacking axis cities and in the later missions there was a few Allied tanks. I think I have fixed this bug.

Server is very laggy. Yesterday I emptied around 1/3th of my ammunition in to the =FEW=Revolveses I-16 and didn't even get smoke from it. Wing mates saw it too, there was many hits. Too bad didn't record it.

 

Sometimes DServer.exe jumps into very high (abnormal) utilization without a reason. Normally during the full server time  the utilization is below 60%. So it's probably DServer bug.

please correct a planeset for the map N2 (109f4 should be excluded). The first map ended just in 48 hours and it is just so bad....

 

 

As above.

3/1 ratio? When I was on Sunday afternoon and evening it was 45vs35, and later 40vs40.

 

Thats hardly 3/1. Will get a pic next time. 

 

When did you play, European morning? 

 

Even right now it's 14vs14.

Could you please check something out. Mission #21 both Russian tank columns destroyed (tank icons disappeared from map). But on Mission #22, the tanks were back and disabled both the AFs they were attacking. Is this something new that has changed? 

It's a bug (after adding the Axis radio feature). It's been fixed.

Good afternoon, I have such a question. Tell me please, is this option for red pilots, how to return home in most cases after an emergency landing on the territory of the enemy has already been canceled? Or is it just so unlucky for me? I had three emergency landing and in all three cases was captured? There is the impression that under each bush a German soldier is waiting, in order to capture the Soviet pilot in captivity.:russian_ru:

No, you just have a very bad luck probably.

How many of those 638 people flew less than 5 sorties?

 

Why does this logic only apply to the F-4 and not for VVS aircrafts that were also present at the battle of moscow? 

 

Thank you for your reply

Why exactly does blue get the F4 on the second map? I get that blue always looses TAW for various reasons but thats not a good way to fix it. You are basically limiting red players (which we know are the less numerous) to I16s, which is arguably the worst fighter performance wise, a p40 if you have it and lets be real, p40 vs f4 is laughable, and a mig3 if youre willing to grind it (which would be fine against the f2). 

 

So the question is why should the blue team get one of their best aircraft on the second map? If I were flying blue I'd fly nothing else for the whole campaign. 

 

Cheers,

@=LG=Kathon,

 

at least 4 players do not fly with 109f4...And i suppose there are a lot of these players, not only 4, who ignore 109f4. It is just a wrong decision from the admins to add it to the map N2.

22 : 4 In server right now.  It seems VVS is going to either quit the campaign entirely or wait until the Yak is available at the start.  Not blaming anyone who does.  Solo fliers are really just fodder for organized packs of 109s.

Quorum doesn't work. And F-4s aren't a probem. Generally speaking. Just pure numbers. Thats all. Tho I am sure it gets better the more Stalingrad planes are coing in. Some russian players have not other games.

This happened because the last few campaigns have been a curb stomp by the Soviets, and it's speculated that's because most random solo players picking Germany.  So every organized group picked GER.  At the same time, TAW devs went all out in making sure the Luftwaffe had the most advantage possible to even things up, so this campaign won't turn out like the last couple.  The current player proportion is the result.  Things might even out when BoS planes get their chance.  Alot more solo players on the russian side at least.  It's hard to be effective solo, however.

You seem to be new here, so you might not know this, but it is common to see a fairly consistent numbers advantage to the German side. It isn't just on this server either. Why this happens, exactly, is up for debate though. And, for what it is worth, giving one side a clear advantage because they keep losing is lame as hell in my opinion. It is especially lame when that same side enjoys the numbers margins they do in the first place and given the fact that the German planes can out perform the competition in most meaningful ways. If the Blue team can't win with better numbers and better equipment there is a problem with that team, not the set up of the game.

 

To further this discussion, why won't quorum work? It is well and good to hold that opinion but just saying it is bad  and walking away isn't enough. I should think it is obvious that this player number issue is something that needs addressing, unless someone would like to argue that point too?

If you have nearly as many deaths as ground targets destroyed, you're not doing much to support the ground war either.

You mean dropping bombs then getting flak's attention from the other four stukas im leading so my wingman make it home.  Stats are a meaningless number unless you look at the context. Stats will always be the bane of these campaigns.

 

War has much more than stats, been there survived to fly IL2, bonds with the men you fight with, worth more than a +CM.  You should try it.

I thought I saw some randomness to it, but maybe I just missed the obvious pattern :).  Thanks in advance for clarifying/verifying.

Congrats on adding more 109 F4s the absence of this plane in the early maps was one of the only reasons I played on your server.

At least I had a reason to fly the F2 and the campaign was all the more enjoyable on the Russian side.

What's the next step? G14 on map 3?

That's a terrible choice...

We are not using f4 this map! I told our guys do not fly it.

i think lg returned to blue and give themselves some advantage. That what are we thinking!

LG said that they were going for a more historical planeset rather than balanced. The F-4 was present at the time. Maybe not in this particular configuration, but it was there. It's not single-handedly going to win the entire campaign for blue.

Wouldn't be an issue if VVS would have gotten the yak, which was also present at the battle of Moscow in an earlier version. Due to this selective picking it leaves questions open.

Agreed on the need for another Yak variant for Moscow, but I'm unsure what can really be done here seeing as the -1b wasn't in service until midway through 1942, some months after our current date on the TAW map.  Likewise, the numbers of them in the skies would be limited due to being a one-off collector's plane, so I don't know to what extent, really, this would help Red out.  I know the series 69 Yak-1 in BoS's base content may not have flown over Moscow, but perhaps it's a better fit?  Though, we'd still run into issues of realism/historical accuracy, as the engine that plane sports likewise wasn't around 'till 42 - I don't know much about the plane otherwise, so maybe you all could better judge whether it should be around.

Just gonna go out on a limb and say that German pilots flying one F-4 at a time isn't going to win the war for anyone.  Air to air combat is practically useless for moving the lines anyway.  Can they really kill attackers/bombers that much better than anything else?  I'm not convinced.

It was actually operation by Finnish LLv34, LLv24, LLv32 and LLv44 squads. We were going to take 5 Ju-52 there, but as we noticed there was more of Ju's on field, many took 109 instead from another AF's We had some Ju-52s in air and 109s covering them and keeping those enemies away from action. We found enemy fighters nearby their AF at 5-7 km alt. We had all around 10-15 guys during that operation in the air.

Again, over and over again, its not about balance. Its about historical accuracy. 

Beside that, following your logic VVS could also get the Yak 1b on map 2. It has less fire power than the I-16 with 20mm therefor it is better at killing attackers/bombers?

 

 

In the end there is simply nothing to add to this discussion anymore and i think nobody is disagreeing that having the F-4 but not the Yak is historically wrong (following Kathons logic). It would be nice to know the reason for this selective picking of historical accuracy though @=LG=Kathon. Did you guys simply not know about the Yak being present as well? in that case, why don't you release the change log before the campaign starts so people can actually voice their opinions and or fix things?.

I think its right to take the challenge and go and do the best. Even outnumbered. But I think its right as well to ask what the intenttion was with the change.
Some poeple interpreted it as crying. Which is fun since many players who have complained are flying both sides. They would profit from powerful planes next campaign.

I can understand that it seems unfair and I personally would be ok w/o F4 as I still don't have it. But like Kathon said, not that many pilots have F4. Also F4 saw front line in June 41. Yak-1b was 42 plane? That would be inaccurate. Map #2 is almost over, but if in future projects removing F4 would make ppl more happy and we could get more pilots on the VVS side to fight first maps, that should be done. :)

Planes are not added to hangar randomly but in an order e.g. F2 is added first before F4.

I will not write that this solution is perfect or ideal and it will stay like that forever ;) We wanted to give Axis slight advantage (Allied have advantage in Il-2). It's a kind of test how impact this solution would have on the game play. Some decisions are good some are bad but we can draw conclusion after testing them. 

 

Here are numbers of sorties of Bf 109 F4 and other Axis planes. You can see that F4 sorties are minority.

109 F-4 took to the skies over Moscow.  Yak-1b did not.  That's the long and short of it.

First of all, thank you for engaging in this discussion!

 

So historical accuracy played no major part in that. I understand that there is some need to balance things, after all i supported a "buff" to axis for a very long time. However i think that the majority plays this Sim for historical accuracy and therefor i am very much against this approach to change the plane set that way. So what would i suggest?

 

I think in order to make a historical plane set viable, the Mission itself needs to get re-balanced. At the moment the impact of tank columns is huge which gives VVS the advantage. Creating different objectives and/or giving depots/train stations/supply columns and airfields a more important role would have a way bigger and more positive impact than any plane set change can ever achieve.

 

 

For example airfields could be much more affected by damage when it comes to plane selection. In turn this would make supply columns and train stations more valuable. Honestly, after playing several TAW campaigns the mentioned objectives never really felt like they would make a difference in the bigger picture. All it boils down to is disabling airfields with tanks or level bombing. 

 

It would be nice to get a change log before the mission starts in the future.

 

Also providing numbers/graphs only on the F-4 doesn't give us a lot to compare it to. @=LG=Kathon can you maybe compare the numbers of the F-4 to the MiG 3? should give us a better perspective.

I only used the Yak 1b to show that your argument is flawed. Just because something might not be better at killing attackers/bombers doesn't mean it has no impact on the game or that it should be in the plane set. That is all.

The F-4 that took to the skies above Moscow didn't have clearance for 1.42 ata. The F-4 we have in game has engine clearance of July 1942. Hence the post of Operation_Ivy : Since yaks (in early forms) were present over Moscow, VVS should have access to yak1. 

 

 

The F4's presence isn't the issue I think. What is the issue is the discrepancy in player numbers in the early maps - map 1 especially. I think it's due to people's perception/opinion on the VVS planeset for these maps (mostly ishaks and P-40's, arguably hard planes to fly). The presence of the F-4 might discourage VVS pilots to effectively take part in map 2 leading to less VVS pilots for map 2 than expected, just a hypothese though.

I predict that, once the mig comes available in numbers, the lagg and yak are available too, the numbers will equal out more, and VVS will once again start winning the maps through objectives.

Well, answer is simple, if the F-4 in question was not historic for the time period, then add the Yak-1 of the comparable series that is *also* not historic.

 

You cannot justify of using non time period F-4 if you use the same rationale to disqualify Yak-1. This right here is the double standard that gets peoples back hair standing. 

 

Either add both or add neither.

Had a great time with Coldman, some of the SCG members, and another person, (Forgot his name, sorry!)

 

But this is what true teamwork is, Thanks for the great time coldman...

That was indeed a great sortie. SCG flew 5 of the Ju-52s, one redundant to make sure we capture Ryabinki in one go, albeit one had to return early due to an engine failure. So it was all right. Shame that no individual points are given for such missions ;)

It was actually operation by Finnish LLv34, LLv24, LLv32 and LLv44 squads. We were going to take 5 Ju-52 there, but as we noticed there was more of Ju's on field, many took 109 instead from another AF's We had some Ju-52s in air and 109s covering them and keeping those enemies away from action. We found enemy fighters nearby their AF at 5-7 km alt. We had all around 10-15 guys during that operation in the air.

As i said earlier Without fighter escort on multiple levels of altitude this mission would end drastically worse. We were aware of high altitude red fighters by our scout cover high and know the positsion of front line artillery due to scout fighters on low altitude so we could avoid all threats and luckly land in base safetly without losses. :salute:
