He who fears being conquered is sure of defeat
The goal of WB Clash of Eagles is to conquer your enemy's airfields. The goal of the enemy is exactly the same... to capture yours. The side that eventually defeats the enemy by conquering all its fields wins the war. Strategic goals linked to each field can be attacked to increase the rebuild time of the field you want to attack. Any damage you inflict on your enemy will be carried over to the next day. A war can be short or long. Plan carefully. Timing is key. Perform strategic bombing raids on enemy radar installations to blind him.


Attack bold and straightforward, with guns blazing and bombs exploding, or sneak in the backdoor; way behind enemy lines. Fly Nap of Earth or at Angels 30. Its all up to you. Fighter pilots make movies, bomber pilots make history. But no matter what you do or who you are, we keep track of every sortie, every kill, every death, each hard target you destroy, every para you drop successfully. All your stats and of your squadron can be checked on ClashOfEagles.net (website online soon).

The server will be online soon as we are almost done testing the code and set-up. We are working on an early, mid and late war planeset now. A war always starts with an early war planeset which we try to balance the best as we can. 
 

Icons on and icons off...
We will launch a Clash of Eagles Main Arena with short range icons on (Warbirds style), and a Realism Arena with icons off. The Main Arena will be the place for new pilots and those who prefer relaxed realism and old Warbirds and Aces High geezers :). 
This Main Arena will be the breeding ground where a community will develop. An ideal place to train and have loads of fun at the same time. Eventually we plan to create and host special historical events on a European and US friendly timeslot (Like Warbird's Scenario Lites, EMC's)

 

Open beta soon

Make sure to stay updated when we launch Open Beta. Like the WB Clash of Eagles Facebook page 
WB Clash of Eagles in IL2 is inspired by all flightsims. Idea, build and tested by pilots of the 1st.ROF Netherlands. Special thanks to the bastards of the <<~Loose Deuce~>>~ squadron for help and testing.

 

Blue Skies! <S>

Closed beta test - monday May 31 - 2021

We knew that the ‘good old warbirds field capture concept’ was fun. We just wanted to make sure it still is. So it was time to test and let you guys know if WB Clash of Eagles has potential. Yesterday evening 20 pilots logged on to find out if the game concept is still fun… read on what they found out
 

The new server is deployed and now stationed in a secret location deep into Bavaria country. The map is done, 20 field lay-outs completed, additional linked targets added, code is finalized. Yesterday evening was the first closed beta test together with the fine bastards of the Loose Deuce squadron. Briefing at 20.30. Room filled up with twenty battle hardened flightsim vets. Listen up guys… mission is clear and simple… bomb fields, close it, capture it.
 

After Action Movie here: 

 

Jabo’s and bombers took off, trailed by two few JU52’s. We not only wanted to test the code and stability of the new server, we mainly wanted to actually feel if it was fun to fly these type of airfield-capture missions. Well… without any false pretensions, we can conclude now this concept is still a success. Timing is crucial in attacking and capturing fields, and because of that you need to communicate. And this is were the fun kicks in. As an individual pilot you feel you are part of a whole. And that is essential if you want to build a strong, fun and likeminded community of warbirds pilots. Comradery and rivalry go hand in hand. Around midnight we all sat down and discussed what we had experienced. Good vibes all over the place. Man it was good fun!
 

Open Beta soon

Still some tweaking to do. But stay tuned for the date we remove the password of the WB - Clash of Eagles Main Arena, so you can enter the open beta <S>
Please do share this with your flightsim friends 💋😎

Meanwhile: stay tuned https://www.facebook.com/gaming/wbCoEmainarena and (soon online) https://clashofeagles.net

 

Blue skies!

So this is going to be an automated campaign similar to Finish or TAW?  Not sure I can fly with icons on myself, despite being an old geezer myself that used to play on sims with icons, but perhaps you'll find a niche in the IL-2 community.  Splitting severs with different realism settings,  and hence the population, is maybe not the way to go in my opinion but this does let the community vote which one they prefer.

 

Edit: What does "WB" stand for?  Warbirds?  (Old writing teacher pet peeve of mine when people do not define acronyms.)

That is correct sir!

 

Open beta - soon! WB - Clash of Eagles is just around the corner. We're tweaking the last settings, and than you can fly and fight on either the Main Arena server (no wind, short range icons enabled, technochat) or the Realism Arena (full realism, including winds, cem, no technochat). In the meanwhile check out the website with all the essential info, and maps... Yes maps. If you want to capture airfields these PDF maps and helpers are essential. Go download now

This is it. Open Beta is now LIVE. Two servers up and running for you test-pilots. The Main Arena with relaxed settings and of course a Realistic Arena. The goal of WB - Clash of Eagles is to conquer your enemy’s airfields. The goal of the enemy is exactly the same… to capture yours. The side that eventually defeats the enemy by conquering all its fields wins the war. But there’s more…
Check ClashOfEagles.net for all intel, and don't forget to download the Airfield maps. If you want to capture airfields you can’t take off without them. Good luck, blue skies <S>!

Great to see the feedback we already got on the discord channel after the first hours.

 

Great story from someone who canceled date-night to fly when he saw we moved to open beta :)

 

We will keep monitoring your feedback. About altering rebuild timers, AA difficulty, planesets etc. 

 

Thanks!

HEY LAPWIN!

I'll be looking into joining to have some old school fun.

Maybe have to practice the JU52 dive and climb para drop to stack the vertical on the tower.

UPDATE "AMSTERDAM" -- We received great feedback from the Open Beta pilots who flew on the WB - Clash of Eagles servers. Thank you guys!
So we sat down in the O'club yesterday and changed some important settings. To cut it short; less AAA and longer rebuild times in this "Amsterdam update".

NEW maps of all airfields can be downloaded on the website ClashOfEagles.net/Downloads

 

Changes in detail in both the Main Arena and Realism Arena:

- AAA has been tuned down and we replaced 4 x AAA emplacements with searchlights (hint...!)

- The linked targets (ships / factories) AAA has been tuned down as well, and some FLAK is replaced by searchlights

- Extended rebuild times;

  • Fieldstructures and AAA rebuild times upped (now 30 minutes, it was 15)
  • With linked target destroyed: extra 30 minutes rebuild time of all structures on the field (now 60 minutes, it was 30)
  • Linked targets (Ships + Factories) rebuild times stays 90 minutes

- Less wind and turbulence

 

Spread the word, thx for sharing!

<S> blue skies! 😎

Been on a couple of times with my squad mates. We fly in the evening GMT+1 and noticed the servers are quite empty. It is good fun and it would be nice to see more players joining. Wish you all the best.

Hi there.

 

You've got a small bug in mission design...

 

Most (if not all) output (icon names & descriptions, subtitles, etc) will only be available with game client set to english.

Also some icons have the default 'icon description' shown by mouseover on the map...

 

Quick workaround:

Edit the mission in your normal language setting (english I think)

Save it

Make backups off all language files except the *.eng (renaming them will do).

Take a copy of the *.eng and replace every language file with that copy.

Reload mission in editor and save again.

 

Deci

 

PS: The longer way would be to edit these files by hand with a text editor(and possibly make mistakes)

The longest way would be to change every single icon, subtitle, ... by hand (selecting the corresponding language in the editor before)

Always a pleasure to help...

 

BTW:

Some of the Icons have the 'basic' description present (Icon desc)

which will be shown as a tooltip when hovering the icon with the mouse in 'map viewing mode'

You can fix that by simply deleting the additional description inside the language file with a text editor.

 

Taken from the '*.eng' file

 

39:
40:Icon desc
41:
42:Icon desc
43:
44:Icon desc

...

Change to

39:
40:
41:
42:
43:
44:

...

We have updated ours server tools for both arena's (Main and Realism). Now the fieldcaptures are transferred over.

Next to that a bunch of fixes have been made to the mission control software. For faster syncing of the stats.

 

Once we've released the portal, your flight stats will be available shortly after you have ended your flight.

Wild stuff today on real server!  My Stuka group and SG2 Stukas raided F11.  We had about 16 Stukas and fighter escort.  On way to target we were intercepted by Allied fighters, a long running fight ensued with the Stukas eventually reaching target and plastering it!.
Great fight with the LD bois, they were where they needed to be to buffer our attack.
Interesting tactical situations here, We had to time our attacks properly to succeed and be a bit lucky too.  I'm not sure if our para's were dropped under legal 'field capturing' mode but we got some in.  

Fun stuff!

Oh hell yes

 

that was a blast! We saw the radar warning at f11 and came to intercept your attack 

awesome flight in by you SG gents 

great formation, hope to see you more often 

 

S!

P.S you have to close the field before dropping paras

We thought we had closed it, but apparently some of of my pilots say the message said that the linked supply had been destroyed, not the airfield targets so yes we f'd up a bit there.  Fun stuff!

On another issue with the server...when we joined the best German JG plane was the 109F2.  By the time we got our Stuka engines started, JG guys were saying the Fw190s were available and by the end of our time there, about 90 minutes, the Fw190 A6 was available.  So we were all kinda wtf'ing about that cause we got caught by Spits and were expecting Polish Biplanes to intercept us, if anything :)
Cheers, fun on all accounts!

PS  We're hip to the early warning huts now too...

Absolutely a blast! It also helped me alot with the stat processing and scoring system.

 

Yes, the server admin software changed the planeset back to default (issue fixed). I stated that I was updating the planeset in the chat.  So yes, that could have been a bit confusing, sorry for that.

 

I got one of your ju52's and saw the other drop  it much later. But indeed, you closed the factory and not the field. None the less,  great fun. And it show the crazy action you can get with this setup!

 

I quickly alerted the rest of the LD to hop on the server and participate against your massive attack. I enjoyed it very much!

Do the bad guys get a message when you dust one of their early warning huts?  Just curious. 

Question answered on Discord   answer is     NO!

Thanks gents!

We have been working on a brand new statistic system.

For the past weeks we have been collecting the data through all sessions.

 

Below is a screenshot of the application we developed which basically controls the mission. It applies the captured fields after mission rotation (without the need of recompiling the mission, so you don't get disconnected on rotation) and same goes for the planeset.

 

.afbeelding.png.aefd709d26452701008e041518aead99.png

 

The statistics are build upon the rolling log messages. These are parsed,formatted and combined.

 

For the geeks among us:

afbeelding.thumb.png.bdc188279145c1618cd455a58ba40a48.png

 

After it's combined, the logs are removed and waiting for publish.

Every X-duration we send the logs over to a REST api hosted on azure where the data gets pushed to our database.

 

We have been looking at the stats for some time now, and we connected Power BI for the server admins to monitor the events.

afbeelding.thumb.png.906637a8d1bcf2de25b04ec94e1c79a5.png

 

 

Above is a part of one of the dashboards showing the number of flights, targets, pilots etc per mission cycle.

 

This gives us great feedback on how the people fly, which targets are attacked and which planes are used etc, next to the obvious: number of aircraft destroyed, pilot kills, targets etc.

 

Every target on the map is uniquely identified, giving us the chance to also generate statistics on how the AA is performing. Allowing us to adjust the difficulty where needed.

 

 

Thanks for your continued support everyone!

Hop over on our discord channel and fly with us!

 

THANKS!

Fantastic job with this Stevie, think it was you chasing Shock and I (P-51s) back to our base yesterday in a 109? We were both too low on ammo to play with you, did the Factory AA get you (seemed to disappear near there)? Question, at what time (assume US CST?) does the server update the stats? I'm +7 to CST..

Like we talked about on our discord channel: Yes it was and me, an no - i wasn't aware of that. It was good fun how you guys ruined our little attack :)

The stats are updated every 10 minutes (also during flights). I'm still investigating your issue.

 

Cheers
