It was credited to Geo, he attacked it after you disengaged.

Yup, nevermind, I misread the shotdown message as sinerox shot him down, not he shot me down (Oil leaks count as shot down even if you rtb with engine intact?)

Did you take a look at weather conditions after last campaign? I am asking because we are soon moving to Kuban and last time on that map we had rain at temprerature of -20 degrees (like rain, not snowfall)... And ofc you don't really get that cold weather in there anyway.  At least at sea level temperatures rarely drop to freezing levels.

Yes, the weather has been fixed.

FYI, just now the server is randomly kicking out players with Timeout error message back in Multiplayer lobby screen. This hasn't happened before, and it was kicking players from both sides.

Hello,

 

I love playing on TAW, it's my favorite server. However, recently I have been unable to connect to TAW at all. I can't even access www.taw-server.de or the TAW teamspeak from my normal IP. I don't know why this is happening and I'd really appreciate if someone could look into my situation. Even after pinging www.taw-server.de with command prompt I could not get a reply, just constant packet loss. 

 

I'm willing to provide my IP address to anyone who thinks they can solve my issue.

My username is "Kalux"; i'm a new but frequent player on TAW.

 

I'd really appreciate any help you can offer me.

 

With Thanks,

Kalux

Probably German did some damage to those werehouses and it reduced the amount of supply.

This map (#5) has shown some glaring problems Red side has when taking fields. Now, i dont know if this is only problem on map 5#, but this does not feel like "red counter offensive" to me

 

First of all, bombing those last two fields is literally pointless in low player times, when they heal about the speed of 30 to 40% per map, based on past few days observation. 

We have bombed them many times with numbers as high as 10 Pe-2, multiple times and the results are less than satisfactory. Bombing them in high player times turned out to be equally pointless.  

 

Second of all, Reds are TOTALLY reliant on tanks to take on the field. Past few map rolls on map 5#, blues have flown, under cover of air superiority (when you have the usual blue stack) Ju-52 and just took the last few airfields back. This has created a sort of ping pong oscillation that is created by the script. There is not much Reds can do when the field don't heal at super speed when it is Red, but heal like mofo on crack when it is blue. Tanks are ONLY way Reds can take the fields and so this bring me to the another problem...  

 

Third in all this hot mess, the numbers. Say what you want, but the number differential is atrocious, Blues have longer periods of time of superiority, and they have steeper superiority. What does mean? Simply put, when there is more reds, it is relatively short period, and it is relatively shallow advantage, rarely more than 10 players, and even then not for long.

Moreover, the relative numbers where Red have the advantage is 40-30 or 25-20. When Blues have the advantage, it is anything from 1:2 to 1:20. Blues get map or two to do what they want, unopposed, with 20 or more players against 5 odd sods. In absolute AND relative terms, there is more blues flying, with more stack on all time zones.

This compound the Red Tank only advance problem, because when you have literally only 1 target to defend, targeting any advancing tank column is no brainer as far as it goes to the force concentration at the Blue end. 

When you have, on average, more pilots with bigger stack of numbers, getting those tanks trough becomes just painful.

 

To make this matter even worse, the frequency with which the defensive positions get replenished is just ginormous. You can bomb the defenses till the cows come home and they will be still at 100% at the start of the new mission because muh magical trains, that happen to be right next to the airfield in what Kondor so nicely put is a "buttfuk city" for any bombers. 

 

 

TL:DR

 

Only tanks can capture for reds, more blues than reds on average so tanks just die. To compound the problem, super healing for fields makes raids on fields next to useless.

You are mixing depots and warehouses. Red have 2 depots now and blue none.

 

Warehouses were available as targets in #291 and #292 missions.

I see from 4-5 days to now, German Depots always at 100% damage, yesterday aircraft limit for LW has increased by 60 planes, now is 1360. How can this be posible?

 

BTW for VVS side depots are about 50% damaged in those days, and the aircraft limit is only 1340 (1300+40)

 

which target counts for the increase of limits ?????

Why so hostile? I just put out some issues that are bothering me and many on the Red side. 

 

I mean, you might find this fun, but there is other peoples who you should take in to consideration. Making this game mode enjoyable for all involved and creating system where peoples contributions don't go to waste because of odd script quirk. 

 

And you are not supposed to sneak stealth drop the Ju-52 paratroopers while flying on the edge of the map, you are just supposed to be escorted there. Ju-52 is blue only game mechanic on TAW, it is a luxury, not mandatory.

It's fun when winning, when you lose it stops being fun and whining starts. When the Reds won many TAWs in row, I don't recall anyone complaining on the Red side. Only advices, like get down to the deck instead of Hartmann stuff, teamplay etc I'm sure you remember.

 

There will never be perfect TAW, always the side losing finds it unfair.

One thing was annoying earlier today, when we had only 1 AF(Morozoskeyborowichye) we could attack only 1 enemy airfield (Cherniakowalskyperestoik) and all other 17 airfields where safe from our #bombermaniacs, but I don't complain TAW is best and if we win this map I'll have to DONATE money again to server overlords.

This is correct. Blue had one depot captured, and the other depot was 100% destroyed. Yet they got more planes, etc than Red did, even though Red had both depots, damaged, but none destroyed.

I started TAW about the time the first 2 kuban planes came out so i don't have the luxury of enjoying those *long red streaks*. 

 

The points i am addressing now are generated by TAW script and a assault option available to blues but not reds, i have literally said NOTHING in my post about the quality of a blue player.

And i cannot really say if your losses in previous TAW were from the desire to not risk your virtual pilots life, if it was, then that critique might have had merit. :P

 

I am really starting to wonder, how insecure one must be to come up with personal retorts against issues that are clearly stemming from script. ;)

Guys, have you ever shot a Ju52? is practically a free target, fly to no more than 280 km the gunner is a  joke will not damage you with your 7.92 mm machine gun, the point of Drop zone appears on the map, it is so small that you do not have to find so much, the true if we capture the base so it is because you allow it, and see that, it is rare to see a formation of more than 3 Ju52, but it is normal to see more than 4 Pe2 with his cal. 50 to 5k bombing and flying more than 450 km/h and with a single shot that you take it in engine you will down.

Autolevel at direction X for Y minutes, then autolevel at direction B for C minutes at the edge of the map. 

 

While in autolevel, do the dished, walk the dog, etc... When done, you get a guaranteed airfield because 95% of people dont know or dont care about drop zones unless someone herds them there SPECIFICALLY for the occasion and camp the site for 2 hours.

I mean, what is your advice to bombing airfields that repair 31% of damage done, right after bombing it? :crazy:

 

Even now, Chernishkovskiy healed itself DESPITE being damaged, at astonishing rate. As long there is blue superiority, bombing it is, pointless. Please do tell, how would you act in this situation.

You should get more players online and bomb more. Looks like you have given up.

 

If it's a bug, please report to the LG guys.

Could it be something related to the Secret Wehrmacht depot?

 

Here you see the position of the depots in the first mission from the Map #5:

http://taw-server.de/pilots_mission.php?mission_id=234




And here you see a magical depot appearing from nowhere in 1408:

http://taw-server.de/pilots_mission.php?mission_id=291

 

 

Smart move, LW... 

 

That depot was the "reinforcements".  

 

The fact that majority of people playing TAW don't even know what it is makes me question this game mechanic. Its up for 1 map and then its gone, it that map happens to be 20 - 5 stacked, GG no RE...

Depots don't give supply like +60 planes +40 tanks. This is the werehouse role when it spawns like on kuban map ships are spawned.

 

From the manual:

3.10 Warehouses and ships

Warehouses and ships are spawned and visible on the map once a few days. If not destroyed they increase limits by.

Warehouse:

· 80 aircraft

· 150 tanks

· 240 trucks

Ships:

· 135 aircraft

· 225 tanks

· 360 trucks

Damaged or partially destroyed warehouse or ships increase limits by accordingly smaller amount.

I've seen up to three drop zones in one round.  One guy can capture an airfield(that then becomes active immediately) on his own over the course of the round.  It's a bit extreme.

Good luck trying to fly to the drop zones and back 5 times inside a period of 2 hours.... To cap an airfield you need 60 paras, and a ju52 can only carry 12, but its slower than the stuka, i dont think its possible to do it alone in a single round, and thats assuming you dont get shot down by AAA or some red fighters.
