Im sitting , drinking a glas of red wine and thinking back when I was young and I read the small comic ......FX a 

Little comic series : Battle Britton .....a English pilot , almost in a spit and he was a hero ..... I don't remember any of the plot , but he was the hero , and I have seen many Hollywood movies with good and bad gays .... And they made some very smart thing ....

 

I'm not so much into Taw , and I use some time in Berloga for rehursing against real pilot ..... Before I'll go to Taw 

But , what I mean , I can think it's Brilliant sometimes when some ppl make a plan that is maybe stupid - but in the end seems to be very smart 

 

It's the story about xjammer I'm talking about ...... And what I have read about the nightwitches , then they  make some plane to take the flak when one go down bombing 

 

It's fine we have some rules , but let us allso be creative and not just a crowd

Because i can't believe that someone can seriously think about these versions. 

 

Because of course xjammer is a saint and would never do such a thing, what were we thinking eh?

 

Ban the guy, he will just find the next exploit, and the next exploit, all at our expense and to fuel his fun.

Another issue is that what Riksen and others have mentioned: Most of all JG4 have shown to sit in spectator slots denying Russians/VVS to join and balance the sides. While I do like the guys, I honestly have to look down on that attitude - not even wanting to fly red once and stacking the server repeatedly blue. Over all TAW campaigns so far - and now denying Teambalance again by occupying slots!  

 

Are you serious? :o: Do they really do that ?...Nobody from the JG4 for talking about that ?

Can somebody tell me how kubinka was captured by a destroyed tank column?

There was no symbol left on the map and we just lost Kubinka. There was no DZ to my knowledge.

 Before 5 min to the end the icon was there.

To try and restore some balance at peak times, could players be restricted by numbers of sorties flown per day/24 hours?

 

for example if I’ve flown 10 sorties in a day, someone who hasn’t flown any sorties or less than 10, gets priority over me to join the server at peak times, it doesn’t mean I can’t join at all, if the servers full then perhaps I’m banned for 60 minutes to allow others to join.

 

something like:

if player has 10+ sorties per 24hours between 7-9pm if server is 90% capacity = 60 minute ban

The adrenaline of flying an I-16 against three (!) Bf-109s is a fun challenge... Now coming to you live from any active objective on the map!

 

Here's my suggestion: Stagger the plane set.

 

If for a map the playerbase is heavily biased towards one side then on the next map then do not progress the planeset for the overpopulated side. Meaning that for the next map (for example) the Bf109 E-7 would remain the +1 fighter for the LW but the MiG-3 becomes the +1 for VVS.

Imagine the outrage if the top luftwaffe pilots had to fly inferior planes. They'd never fly again. I am literally sitting out the first part of the campaign because the planeset is stupid.

But that's just the thing! MiG-3 vs E-7 probably still favors the 109 in virtually all categories. The LaGG-3 flies like a brick in the best circumstances. The Yak-1 is outclimbed by almost all Bf109-Fs that LW is already getting access to in Map 2. It wouldn't be the LW flying inferior planes - they would probably still be statistically better according to most data!

 

Edit: Reading the stats the MiG-3 is slightly faster & climbs slightly better than an E-7. The E-7 turns better and is significantly better armed - unless the the MiG wants to sacrifice it's only advantages with the pods.

Mig3 is faster for 40..50km and it is "slightly".

Heaven forbid the Germans not fly the significantly faster plane for once and have a go at turning instead. Like the VVS does in virtually every matchup.

I fly both sides. Last 2 campaigns was on the red side. Your comments are wrong.

I just think you're missing the point of giving the currently disadvantaged side a leg up. It's supposed to give them an edge.

this is so hard to read. its beyond any categories of wrong. The MIG3, climbs faster, is like 50 kph faster, accelerates faster, climbs faster, has about equal armament (two 20mm in the nose). and the performance is not even in the same ball park. 
the Mig having the much³ better high alt performace. Yes the e7 turns better, so if turning is "all" yes, the 109 is in "all" categories better.

Actually the MiG vs 109 F2 is super nice with MiG being the better plane for me:) The real pain will be the F4.

I think I mainlined my coffee a little too hard and got the F-2 and E-7 mixed up.

The problem is that it happend every time when you wrote about a balance in the game.

It doesn't matter how good a pilot you are - if you're the only target for three people you will lose.

 

If you're not a great pilot (like me!) then you will also lose - really really fast.

The problem is the game limitations also . You think your flying alone yet there are six other pilots around you yet you have not seen . You spot your target you pull the trigger then all hell breaks loose . Suddenly you have six other pilots chasing your target . ..lol

JG4 currently have 16 pilots in the server, all flying blue.............the limit of this server comes down to human nature in the end.

We must relive the glory days of the REICH! EVERY DAY. For I cannot bathe in the light of Hitler without my trusty 109. Every poor stooge in a i16 must taste the glorious shells of Galland himself! Flying Luftwaffe isn't a game it's a lifestyle get used to it.

 

Ok I'm done.

I don't like how TAW strips you when you lost connection, today I was damaged by Mig3, disengaged and was save  RTB ( actually close to airfiled) then had disco and becouse of it lost the plane, progres points, CM, streak and was marked as shotdown 😕 

 

We are adults  and especial in TAW do not need that policy.

I am starting not to like this game:

 

Looks like we have another person not playing TAW in good faith

 

https://taw.stg2.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=23812&name=ROSS_WedRuSs

 

I guess KoBY engaged it, and it crashed. Instead of leaving the game - WedRuss just sat there for his bot gunner to takeout the guy or anyone else that loitered into the area. That was me - but I took his butt out!

 

Not cool man...

Maybe it's time for a quick reminder to some that this thread is not a tribunal but a place to discuss TAW. If you have issues with the behavior of players, contact the Admins via PM.

I will pilotely have to disagree with you. Here is where we discuss all things TAW, which include airing of grievances. 

 

LOL I did like that "...quick reminder" LOL Like you have are Da Sheriff here, Haha! Ride dem coattails bro!

Amen.  I have a squaddie who doesn't have a throttle on his joystick, so he only flies the G2.  Full power on takeoff and never touches the power again the whole sortie.

Well how very polite of you, consider me impressed!

 

I should probably follow my own advice and just ignore this Thread until the campaign is over and the content is bearable again.

On a lighter note - the chaotic, low-altitude turning dogfights that happen in Maps 1 & 2 on TAW are always a blast and often my favorite bit of the whole campaign.

Okay, maybe to prevent further situations like landing on enemy territory/airfields just add a message to all concerning players that "Infantrymen report that an enemy plane landed by ####.#" that will give the players of the affected team the location to find and destroy the landed plane by themselves; Also enabling 5-10 minute timer limit for spectator when a side is full. There! if that is indeed possible I think these issues will be solved, and to further balance the matches that will be up to us players to not join stacked sides, and change sides occasionaly, I havent flown red yet on this TAW but its only because I can enjoy my Macchi on map 1 and 2. (Too bad I can't do it now because you know... Blue is stacked)

Question regarding the Ju52's "MAB 250 Para Containers". Can i drop these things over a damaged AF for resupply? I tried it and i'm not sure if it worked or not.

Looks like it's the death knell for this map - another one to the villainous LW. Looking forward to MiGs and Yaks for the VVS!

 

But not the LaGG-3. No-one is looking forward to the LaGG-3.

Lagg 3 is the oldest aircraft in BOS, many of us have flown it since early Beta back in 13 or 14.  She's gud with some practice, good deflection shooting,and cool sunglasses, fact. Don't discount her, cuz I won't dogfighting in my Ju52.

She’s a LW statistic with the yva23 restricted.  Utterly useless.
