  1. 1) the churchill isn't 'kind of' a heavy tank, it IS a heavy tank 2) the pershing means the germans have or could have both the tiger2 and the panther - or were you suggesting crs introduce a late 1945 tank to go up against a mid 42 tank? As for steam launch in general - look good or bad things could happen and some thought should be had trying to envision issues and have plans in case they happen - however - some context is needed. if this steam launch is NOT done then the future of this game is much more clear than the what if scenario of a steam launch. meaning, if more eyes don't see this game or have an avenue to even be informed that this game exists, it will continue to slowly wither. can't let possible doom n gloom scenarios prevent us from getting our name out there. Those historical numbers include the clipped HE bug as well as the pre 109 nerf numbers. A better number would be the post 109 nerf numbers till now. also don't forget german greentags for the longest time had to fly 110 vs hurri/h75 and those numbers were laughably one sided.
  2. sure, but DSL is the antithesis of fiber. like quite lieterally DSL was invented to run on different frequencies riding on top of phone signals over POTs networks. granted these days it's more typical to run DSL signaling over fiber, but, there is a lot of copper/POTs DSL still out there.
  3. fiber to the end user isnt all that common anywhere in the world. to the neighborhood sure and in some locations even all the way to the curb but that isn't the common defacto standard outside of maybe Seoul Korea.
  4. If you guys had another option to 'pay without paying' would you use it? Before I expand on that i'll tell you why I still pay for this game despite rarely playing it. One reason and one reason only. This team is the only team on planet earth dumb enough to continue trying to catch this combined arms mmo lightning in a bottle (and i say this with absolute respect). Nobody else on the planet will attempt this. The closest things I'm aware of are significantly smaller in scope - which is fine - this isn't meant to be any 'hate' towards anything else on the market. on the contrary, this is merely my opinion and observation that this game, this team, and this community is the only thing like it in existence ... ... and i think the 'ultimate ww2ol' is do-able and could be amazing. That's why i pay. If the above isn't moving for you, fine, wasn't intended to be - but maybe read what i wrote a few times and tell me if you agree. if you do, maybe $10 a month is critical for you in which case i wouldn't recommend you spending that on this game. however, $10 a month for me is nothing and it's the least I can do to support the only team on earth attempting to do something really difficult that could be absolute magic. That said, if you guys had an amazon link that you could use to do all your normal shopping with would you use that link in exchange for a $5 account? What about a $10 unlimited account? You're all already buying stuff on amazon anyway. Just curious. I'll use me as an example, calendar year to date i've spent ... way too much on amazon lol. If CRS participated in 10% of the sales for just my amazon purchases - they'd have made over $400 from me ... and there are 7 ... well 6.5 months left. No game that i'm aware of has attempted something like what i'm suggesting, but, idk it seems like an interesting option for folks to 'play for "free"' and the important part, crs gets more money to do more interesting stuff. thoughts?
  5. agreed, infantry have been pampered far too long. model weapons as they were, chips fall, tweak if required - else let chips continue to fall
  6. that is a loaded question as you aren't defining 'worth' answer is it depends. me personally, if i drop below 144fps i'm unhappy. about 6 months ago i bought a 27" 1080p 144hz screen. most people called me stupid for buying a 1080p 27" instead of a 2K or 4K. then they argued i should just buy one of those with gsync. Now we're into the $600 range for the screen. Oh, and if i want to play at => 144fps i need no less than 1 x 1080gtx preferably 2. Now we're into the $2000 range. No, 4K isn't worth it - to me. fast forward 2 years and 1.5 GPU generations from now ... maybe playable 4K is more affordable but i still think it will be in the $1000 range for acceptable performance. now, your definition of acceptable performance doesnt have to match mine. if you're ok at 30fps then 4K is in the range of affordable now depending on what 'affordable' means to you.
  7. which allied gun is operating so poorly compared to what it ought to be that the german equivalent outperforms it by 3x?
  8. so what went wrong with the flak30? lack of recoil spring dampner or CoG placement problems? Perhaps the mass isn't correct where it needs to be such that the non deployed towed works fine but when deployed this 'central' mass maybe moves backwards with the spotter? In theory i guess it really doesn't matter if they just shed the rain guard and changed the RoF. If they could do that and get rid of the barrel climb all the better.
  9. wasn't aware that was a thing. can you describe the problem you're attempting to correct in a bit more detail?
  10. correct me if i'm wrong but it isn't even mechanically possible to recoil UP without also forcing the hand wheels to move as well given they're a geared mechanism?
  11. just fyi IRL the 111 (and all level bombers) were massacred anytime they attempted the CAS role. i appreciate that you enjoy doing this, but, just understand the 111 in this scenario should always have trouble as this just wasn't the intended role. all HE are about to get improved by a lot. idk exactly how much but scotsman is a nut about this stuff and did weapons work for our military as i understand it. have some faith in him. meaning, the flak30 may suck less soon via the HE audit alone. if that indeed occurs, the flak38 will still be required as the correct choice but waiting for it will suck less as the flak30 should actually hurt when it hits. if the flak30 is still terrible, don't expect much from a single flak38 either as it uses the same ammo as the flak30 iirc.
  12. and nobody is disagreeing or telling you no. however i would warn you that the flak38 isn't all that amazing in a single barrel format. further, don't sleep on the flak30 we have. its current in game effects upon airplanes WILL be changing soon and lethality should increase. granted same will happen to the allied 25mm but w/e. need the flak38 no doubt. a better way would be to suggest a trio of either AA or AT guns be made to fill gaps. germans could use the 4.7cm czek AT gun and the flak38. if you also modeled the 20mm polston here you now have the guns required to do all the proposed light SPAA, multi barrel light towed AA, and the multi barrel light SPAA. however you might get more traction suggesting something else that fills a gap somewhere in the allied list and or leads to a big variant win as the rats aren't likely to stop what they're doing just to model a single new weapon.
  13. they just added SPAA, you act as though they're completely ignorant of the AA situation.
  14. in theory like in the penetrable wall discussions you could have 'aluminum frame' as well as a 'wood frame'. airplanes are simple like that there were only two types of frame material really. now you can apply different effects upon taking damage. really only applies to HE and its effect but would still be cool.
  15. people have a hard time with equal and equivalent. one of those two words can produce an outcome that is in fact the other word ... but the other word may not in fact be the case between two of the other words ;-).
