JU52 and U2... Missions online?

Recommended Posts

You do not see many JU52 in the online servers, and even less the U2.
It may be interesting to give those who fly those planes many points if they fulfill specific missions, such as launching paratroopers (JU52) or discovering targets that do not appear on the map (only U2 should be able to discover these objectives).
Specific bombings for these two planes would also be possible, for example to search, locate and bomb a convoy of trucks (with little or no AA).
What do you think?

U2 is often available, at least on wol.  Its just kinda suicidal to fly.  Varied mission types, closer airfields to the front, and allowing all loadouts could probably help it see more use, although I wouldn't expect too much popularity because its low speed and vulnerability's make it pretty dangerous to fly.

I was having a blast the other day doing supply runs on TAW in my U2. Perfect for kicking back with a glass of something delicious, some chilled tunes* and a Benson and Hendrix.

 

Not suitable if you're under time pressure. Particularly enjoyable at sunrise or sunset.

It's rather hard to herd cats, especially when there's other "shiny" planes. 

 

The big problem right now is there's no log files generated when performing a task in the Ju52, so there's no stats stating how awesome a player is in the Ju52... Hence, most people don't fly it. Additionally, most players just want to shoot other players. Look at the many servers out there, yet people fly on Wings - "because it has people!!!!"

 

As a designer, I'm not going to put in a lot of effort for little return from my player base, and I think most mission designers will agree with me. So that's why there's not many varied mission types and why there's not a lot of Ju52 and Po2 missions within a dogfight server.

 

However, I do have some single player missions for the Ju52 and the Po2. You can check them out here:

I agree with this statement. There are some really cool closed network events that have Ju52 and Po2 missions as well, as varied mission types. FNBF being one, ACG is another, and there's more out there... See this thread for more info:

However, I think OP was talking about general dogfight servers.

@[TWB]Sketch If there re no stats telling the world how awesome you are then hopefully there are also no stats telling the world how awful you are ... could be just the thing for me :) 

 

@III/JG52_Supongo Another SP offer: PWCG offers both Ju52 and u2 careers if that interests you.

Hah, I meant for most players... Not me specifically. /s

Seeing a JU52 designated spot in multiplayer is between far and to few. I like the JU52 and the biggest downside of flying it is that there is hardly ever a mission for it in multiplayer. So really it is a campaign plane or quick mission plane for the majority of time. I noted such in my review of it on steam for others to understand.

when the Ju52 was new and shiny if I remember it correctly WOL had missions where you had to do para drops... Those were awesome! Flying low n slow under dogfighting planes while my gunner kept them checked we approached and made a successful drop on the smoke signal... Then were strafed and eventually shot down on our way back... Flew a few sorties that day but never saw that specific task for the tante Ju ever since.... Tho I am not a frequent MP flyer when I go up i usually end up flying the U2 with the two 100kg bombs

Different strokes for different folks! Critics disagree with you though:

 

https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/18090-jon-hopkins-immunity/

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2013/nov/17/nils-frahm-spaces-review-piano

https://www.nme.com/reviews/album/maribou-state-kingdom-in-colour-review

https://louderthanwar.com/sasha-scene-delete-album-review/

 

And that's just from the first four artists featured. given that the rest of the playlist consists of such unknown and universally loathed artists as Radiohead, Dj Shadow, Bjork, Bon Iver, Peter Broderick, Nina Simone, Mazzy Star, etc, possibly you have a point. 

 

I'm sure you sat through the whole 6 hours of it to get a balanced impression, rather than just deciding it was 'the worst' based on a couple of songs you had a kneejerk reaction to, right?

 

Thanks anyway for your constructive and on-topic feedback. Shall we continue a discussion about the Ju-52 and U2 now?

No, I listened to the whole thing.  It was pretty awful, but "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" and "Better Days" were the absolute best songs on the list.  Thanks!  Not trying to go OT, but the list was right there in front of me.  😁
