That's interesting Gielow, I'm not for or against but I wonder if it could help?

OK I'm not trying to pick a silly argument with you "believme", so take my response with that in mind. 


1. That wasn't me, that was HvB, what is it about ground pounders, do we all look alike? I know we usually don't walk around flashing our Ritterkreuzes for all to see. We don't survive long enough to get those. 

2. Your original post didn't mention it would apply to just fighters. There are just as many stupid ground attackers who attack enemy targets in a suicide fashion. 

3. I still think it is a bad idea, as there are plenty of good pilots, and from what I see looking at the current Top 5 Fighter Pilots - at least two that don't belong to a squad. 

 

TAW already has an open TS that allows people to join up - or not.

TAW already forces pilots to register on the website. 

 

I think the issue is always going to be there in a 24 hour always on campaign. If you require constant flow of players from all time zones across the world, why then place another artificial qualifier? 

It would work if you want tactical air war to be tactical in first place 😅

On taw the iL2 hovering site indicates the position of a warhouse, but on the game map nothing appears, I go to area, and no remarkable building.
And on the rules I can not find anything on the warhouses, can someone explain to me?

Tks 😉

We have already seen a very similar situation. But unfortunately, no one has recorded it. It was the same player. Thx Norz.

En revanche, le site de la raboteuse iL2 indique la position d'un warhouse, mais sur la carte du jeu, rien ne s'affiche, je vais dans la zone et aucun bâtiment remarquable.
Et sur les règles je ne peux rien trouver sur les warhouses, quelqu'un peut-il m'expliquer?

Tks  😉

I have no idea why you don't see the depot. Maybe it was destroyed? Did you check the recon data on the TAW site?
I'm sure sooner or later the more experienced "campaigners" will answer you.

I would suggest recording your missions.

 

I've noticed more and more guys appear to land, leave the server to go check their videos to see what needs to be hit or what they have hit and then rejoin the server and start the attack again with the knowledge of where exactly they need to drop the next lot of bombs.  It is unfortunate that the TAW guys can't stop this type of behaviour though, as getting such up to-date bomb damaged/intelligence information is really kind of taking the biscuit and perhaps just another element where this game will never be able to give that type of historical accuracy that perhaps required a Recce flight to confirm the damage.

 

Anyway, before we have the usually back-lash, I realise that everybody can record their missions, so I guess nobody is gaining an unfair advantage, however, for me I'm happy to keep doing the long haul high alt bombing and hitting nothing to RTB, where as others know exactly where to drop that last bomb.  

 

Therefore, I would suggest just recording every mission as you might just be dropping bombs on already damaged/dead targets.

 

Regards

what amazes me again is the ineffectiveness of russian AA, 109s can fly around over targets and airfields with impunity, where as the german AA knocks everything out the sky with ease, the 109's arent even scared to come over red bases, as seen in the above video.

Uhm... Dunno about that, dude. Had my 110 instantly wing-clipped by a 61-K, Sheriff got sniped at 5.5 km by an 85mm in the AA's opening salvo, and I've been attacking Pe-2s and IL-2s who attacked an airfield, basically without attacking the AA, having 20 mm guns shooting at them for MINUTES without more than maybe 1 kill on 3+ planes.

Not sure about light but at least the heavy flak is very lethal, when we only had heinkels we suffered 25-35 % loss ratio to flak alone, bombing at 5-5,5k. Its better now with Ju 88(bombing at 5,5 to 6k) but still high. In a 109 I spend absolute minimum time in flak, at high speed, high alt and maneuvering, always only to draw fire away from bombers(that are killed by flak anyway) and I've still been hit and killed by it all the way to 6k

Having played both sides multiple times the aaa problem is as bad for both sides. It's just russian planes are more rugged that it seems that way. Also it seems to me that the reds deal with aaa at tanks much faster than blue side, but maybe its just an impression.

You do realize that the point of the video is exposing a cheater, right?

Hi guys,

I don't know if here is the right place for this post but I have a question about the sorties... On the TAW stats is there an option to see all of my sorties or I can only see the last 38?

Sorry for my bad English.

Even when there is like only 20 people one the server, the red side picks a target tank group and goes for it, even when they are not in the same squadron or even on comms...on average they do that more often, so that is why they are a bit more effective in that regard.

In fact, I do not know what type of target to find on Verh. Tsaritsinsky in 1422 on the current map for example.

There are no targets there, it is just a city. The city might have defensive positions around it that you can attack, but these positions will only be there when there is tanks approaching the city.

 

The ingame map actually tells you what places you should attack or defend. If there is no attack or defend text on the map, then there is no point in going there.

Hello,

 

Does anyone know the reason of the 0.000 dmg ? Are there rubber bullets in IL-2 ?
http://taw-server.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=37413&name==19FAB=AlterEgo

 

Thanks in advance,

AlterEgo

I think it is connected to last patch. Devs told that they tuned dmg detection. Before patch I had some situation when I was sure I saw I hit plane with 7.7mm I saw spark and debris but on taw log there was no dmg done. Maybe now it's calculated as 0 damage.

Il n'y a pas de cibles là-bas, c'est juste une ville. La ville peut avoir des positions défensives autour desquelles vous pouvez attaquer, mais ces positions ne seront présentes que lorsque des chars approcheront de la ville.

 

La carte ingame vous indique en fait quels endroits vous devez attaquer ou défendre. S'il n'y a pas d'attaque ou de défense de texte sur la carte, il est inutile d'y aller.

ok tks 😉

I understand your gripe. The only way for you to get a full authentic feel is to have it be historically accurate right to the end. Germans lose.

 

The ACG campaign has this... It's not a competition, accuracy is more important. However as this is competitive gimping yourself in any way while everyone else is playing to win is you wishing for a play style competitive play will not give.

 

To play devils advocate, pretend it was a recce flight confirmation.   :P

Their should be a different persona for fighter and bomber pilots, so if I choose to fly bombers to resupply or bomb I shouldn't be punished for dying in it and losing my fighter pilots life. It'd create more incentive to fly bombers as well.

I certainly would not like to waste my time logging out to check a replay. Should everyone then too make dual accounts to check for paradrops and so forth? At what point is the enigma fully cracked? :P

Or just bite the proverbial bullet and fly bombers and attackers. 

 

Whenever there is only SCG and other fighter only pilots on the server, the VVS can rest easy as no soviet targets will be hit.

You cant log out at prime time as when the server is full it can take 20 min + to get back in.

 

Usings recordings, viewed with another account on a second machine while primary account flies on TAW or not, to "recon" ground targets is just another exploit no different to spying enemy brief for stuff that doesnt show up on your side's brief. One of the reasons why flight recordings do not show planes beyond the 10 km visibility bubble is because they used this very same cheat around year 2003 to check where people take off and where bombers fly. Yes it was very fun to get intercepted literally 110 km out to the sea in Kuban at 8000 m. Not.

Transport missions are easy milk runs.  Maybe fly one V-life as bomber and if you die fly next V-life as fighter; basically switch roles every V-life if you don't want to mix them.  Personally I see myself as a multi-role pilot during TAW that is willing to carry out both tasks based on what helps my team the most at the moment and I try to survive as long as possible accomplishing those tasks.  That being said in between TAW's I'm going to take a break from bombers and fly fighters primarily.
