  1. new players rarely need to broadcast on side chat. maybe typing in .side being 4 keystrokes more effort than a single function key might dissuade a small percentage of the whiny spam as well.
  2. The lack of channels youre hinting too is the same lack mingus is talking about. Further, i specifically mention new players who likely have 2 empty channels ... use one of those 2? For vets, mingus' ask for more channels solves the larger problem of not having enough channels.
  3. German air persona should just auto populate/tune channel 20 too, allied air personas 55. New players wont know which channel to tune for awhile, may as well make it easy.
  4. Theyre really small at 4k fwiw.
  5. note how many times the "no" posts include irrational fears that don't even attempt to engage the suggested changes. they 'know' it will destroy the tank game ... despite the stated restrictions. not entirely sure how they arrived at that 'knowledge' but they 'know it'.
  6. not currently - i think we'll be limited to distance variables only. Already mentioned: Cannot deploy further than X meter from a friendly AB/CP/FB/FMS - whichever is closer. Let's put a number on this how about 300m? Cannot deploy closer than X from an enemy AB/CP/FB/FMS - although if you check for enemy FMS this is a way to get rough estimates as to where enemy FMS is, so maybe don't have this? As for number, this needs to be a lower number than the FMS IMO. If FMS = X then FRU= X-100m? Cannot deploy more than X FRU per AO. Not global AO but the AO you're on, let's say 2 for now. Cannot spawn RPATs, Sappers, or ATRs. Thematically Mortars shouldn't be allowed either given the weight similarities but mortars are so ineffective idk that anyone would have an issue with mortars. Keeping that first number relatively low pretty much prevents across river deployment options. @Merlin51 how wide are rivers? Feels like about 50m. Then each river bank is typically fairly clear for another 30 or so meters yes? Id there a way to detect river banks? If there are then adding another check to both the FMS and the FRU could further restrict. Cannot deploy FMS closer than X from river bank, cannot deploy FRU closer than X from river bank. If that were say 200m for the FMS, with a 300m max distance for the FRU, and additionally, no closer than 150m from a river bank for the FRU then you're essentially 100% preventing the FRU being deployed across a river.
  7. 45 degree angle is the max the ju88 could take without coming apart. encouraging more because the early versions could handle a few missions before being written off likely isn't a great idea. we already have the stuka, 110, 109, and 190 that can all dive bomb just fine. 4 x SC250 is a good enough bomb load for the ju88. could do 1 x sc500 and 3 x sc250 as well.
  8. Its actually the same bombsite as the He-111 and its dive capabilities are limited to about 45 degrees.
  9. Way to much alleviation of tanks by way of various mechanics IMO. Tanks have a right to be feared. Trying to blunt their effectiveness in various ways over the years has hurt the game IMO.
  10. perhaps the new team had grand ideas that weren't in touch with player sentiment - or rather - needed to be calibrated. that won't happen over night. if you're suggesting this new team hasn't accomplished more for the game in a little over a year than the old team did in over a decade ... well ... perhaps you need some re-calibration. not suggesting you're entirely wrong in your feelings but if you don't see generally positive on the horizon then you're choosing to magnify the real or perceived negatives. ffs man - the ju88 is on the horizon. first truly brand new vehicle model in forever. this means the panther and other net new models actually have really high probabilities for finally being in game. 1.36 = complete overhaul to 'how' we play. no, CP capture is still at the core, i get it, but 1.36 isn't a trivial endeavor. we have movement forward, don't lose sight of that.
  11. your tears never dry up do they dre? its impressive you've managed to hold onto your tribal side bias since 2001. kudos sir!
  12. Why is reasonable supply == unlimited supply? Having essentially no tanks last map wasn’t reasonable nor were the number of Matildas. It would have been a MUCH larger issue if the allies had numbers. Having a tiny smattering of SMGs wasn’t reasonable either. Any real effort towards RDP until such time that the fishbowl gets ripped out and the ju88 is in for parity is putting the cart before the horse. I’ve also seen a few posts from the all caps crew about “same supply all the time = boring” ... again - to whom? Further, you sure you’ve got the right boredom here? Might it be fatigue over the same early war time frame that is the real fatigue? People would rather play with stuff they don’t get to play with a lot? Futzing with the T0 numbers doesn’t fix that. instead of messing with the numbers, do an accelerated T0 and T1, have them in total last 10 days. Then T2 10 more. or, add a lot more T0 stuff that freshens things up. Radically altering the TOEs though ... seems to have missed the mark and made things even more boring - counter to the ‘boring’ argument.
  13. Did they? When? Who? I dont ever recall reading anywhere on these forums a call to limit automatic weapons. I recall countless threads asking for semi auto rifles though, and those have been added. Stg44, fj42, lots of automatic or faster firing rifles adddd over the years yet you claim players wanted to reduce smgs? It feels like some miscommunication and or someone's 'realism' agenda is being pursued and geberally feels out of touch wirh recent new weapons and player sentiment. *edit* fwiw, many threads about the lmgs ability have been posted, i still dont recall a reduction being part of this though. As in numbers, its all about hipfire capability and rambo use.
  14. Odd you phrase it this way, at least 150 tiger2s took part in the ardennes offensive. Thats a big difference between 1 heavy tank per flag leading to a presumed offensive push that contained about 25% of all tiger 2s ever produced. Of the total combined tank strength, the tiger 2 was about 1/4 of the total. The germans hit that area with essentially everything they had. Around 1500 tanks and tank destroyers, 450ish being tanks.
  15. NO! Don’t kid about this hatch. Make those changes and hold these f2p/unsub players accountable. They went f2p in protest, make the change and call them out! IMO
