  1. God darn I hate to love you. Just when Some of your choices ripple down and start to fluster me, you know just what to say. I sometimes worry about your heart's allied origins, but I think your perspective is giving the rats some needed new angles. That Being said, I like the historical aspect that has been implemented as of late, I really do, its a fresh slap in the face for many snoozing hamsters stuck on this revolving rodent wheel of campaign after campaign that we exist in. But I think yall shouldn't get to excited about that historical accuracy part and leave the red vs blue stuff in the dust so much. Keep a balance of fun and history that works for the players and takes into account the nature of internet gaming. On a personal note,BMBM, I hope your air combat background translates into some more attention for the air game on some levels that have not been visited for some time, other than the recent fancy repaints and mix matched load outs made from already existing stuff and trying to feed us that as new content. Even it up..... The allied planes black out too easily, I've continually heard from those guys , can yall look at that mechanic? The blackout mechanic is in need of an overhaul for both sides, for sure. . And for the axis ( just making some examples).. The German 20mm LW cannons are still next to completely impotent these days. We take the starter plane 109 E1 over the once touted "best all around plane in game" 109 F4 because the E1 simply is more effective in its potency in day to day fights. That aint right man. Thats just my hopes. That being said, I am still thrilled that the rats brought you on board and the change has been fun for most if still loathed by many. One more thing, when yall go to change a unit for fairness, dont think, "lets make it harder for people to get kills in this unit to balance it out" No, that just pisses folks off, Think more like "we should make it easier for both sides to get kills in this unit. Happy camper, because everyone wants to kill stuff.
  2. Something I have brought up in the past but got a rolled eyebrow or two from the powers that be is the following issue: We have our main chat channels,, Target, side, mission, squad,,etc etc,, and then there are the two air channels, 55 for allied air and 20 for LW. Well, (at least for axis, Im not sure about allied side) there are some other popular custom channels that are used very often,, example, Ch 10 for army ops. Well, If an axis player wants to be fully in the know, he needs to tune all of these channels. Problem is,, we dont have enough chat channels to "be in the know" and tune all of the popular custom chat channels and still have room for the all important "HELP" channel to answer questions the new guys might have. We need more channels. What say you CRS? Possible? I dont think its debatable that this is an important issue.
  3. I'm sure this will be deleted within a half hour but if it is not, I have a question for the higher up Rats. have you discovered that the game cannot actually be brought up to 64 bit and are just trying to run with 32 as long as you can? This is the rumor that is starting to spread. Guys are bashing your damage models and everything else, but it probably has nothing to do with damage models. the ancient 32 bit stuff just isnt cutting the mustard anymore. So often frustrating things happen in game, like rounds not killing, or going through enemy or a host of other things and guys blame the damage models, lag etc,,. Is it more probably that the game just can't see three quarters of the rounds being on target? And thats probably just the tip of the ice berg. So can we get a respectable reply on how the 64 bit deal is coming along? or are you just smoke and mirroring it because its a damn mess and you dont even know if its possible? Rat gods? There should be not one GD thing higher on the priority list than getting 64 bit going. no repaints, or reselling us more old stuff with new loadouts, ( did i mention we dont need any more repaints?) 64 bit or doomsday.
  4. dont be a PP head, you dont even play anymore. youre just starting [censored].
  5. I'm effin thrilled. We all get to relearn the game and our sides and experiment with what works at what times. Brilliant move Oh glorious Rat gods. Tis a break from the reoccurring hamster running wheel that has run its damn course a million times over.
  6. YES! BmBm becoming a rat volunteer can only be a good thing. Thrilled to see ya applying your exquisite vernacular and deep and diverse experience in the virtual combat arena back to our ww2 online once again. On the new changes this upcoming map... a thousand times yes! This is awesome, and some will [censored], as they do, but this approach , I think, will really add to the immersion and also potentially lead to folks being forced to develop better basic fundamental skills of varying types in order to succeed. Something that will lead to better battles moving forward. Diggin it!
  7. If CRS could either give us more airfields or the ability to lift closer to the action in parts of the map where the current airfields are pretty far away from, I dare say it would triple ( Yes triple) the Air game population. Right now its frikkin tumble weeds 80% of the time because noone wants to fly far. It doesn't bother me usually, but I've heard many a pilot log in and see the distance to target from the AF and say "F-That!" and just log off. Thoughts or updates my glorious Rat overlords? TY
  8. I have been a cranky lad for the past couple years as no matter how well I out fly guys ( Im an air player) I am not getting the registered hits ( and therefore kills) I should have been getting. I thought it was the game and was frustrated with CRS. Eventually unsubbed last week and went f2p, (yuck, I know) But I made a discovery yesterday... I moved 2 years ago, but had the same wifi equipment, a fancy and expensive ASUS wifi card that was great in the old place, and at least seemed to do great at the new house, but with this game only, I was always having the problem of my guns not working right 75% of the time. Turns out the new house is old, like 150 years old and doesnt have the same type of construction as a modern house and my wifi signal was getting robbed just enough to where it seemed fine but it wasn't. Finally i had enough and went nutty trying to figure out the issue, after having CRS check my account and all sortsa crazy stuff, I ditched the wifi card, as nice as it was and moved my rig across the house to be hardwired into the modem with a cat 7 cable. BINGO. HOLY F, glaring huge night and day difference instantly. I am hard headed for not thinking of this sooner of course, but that being said, Now I am getting all my rounds registered and having much better performance in game,, sigh of relief. Even on the ground, which I hardly ever play because its always like shoot a guy 5 times he doesnt die and I'm frustrated again. Well now ground game is fun and works perfectly. So, this might not help most of you, but If any of you live in an older house or have unique building materials when you have your rig it is something I hope can help at least someone. The game is brand new to me again after years of being angry all the time. Resubbed and ready to rock again. Thank Goodness. Moral of the story, It ain't always the Rats fault no matter how hard you think it might be.
  9. 2004, First squad was JG2 back in the highlight of the air days.
  10. Yo, found it
  11. Air needs many more tier zero aircraft capacity. Dont waste time thinking about it, its true. LW only has one tier 0 and 1 CAS aircraft in the stuka, and the new players are spending them with a quickness. Need more capacity so us vets can actually have a chance to use them OHM.
  12. Darn squishies. Le sigh.... you speak truth sir.
  13. This early map crap with the hardwired to win at all costs as fast as possible HC at the wheel is less than ideal. We are on a never ending hamster wheel people. We've all gone through the map dance what seems like a thousand times. And then we do it all again.... Its Ok to let the game play out and maybe take up HC duties for the benefit of fun for the players not a pp measuring contest for the map movers. You are Orchestrators of fun for the masses HC. Sometimes winning as fast as possible at all costs is not going to give the virtual soldiers fighting for you the best game experience. If you see a great potential fight brewing that has a possibility of having good combined arms play maybe don't take the cheap shot chop block against the other side to secure your map moving boner. Do something to make fights like that thrive instead. P.S. No, I'm not joining HC again. I get harassed enough as it is. lol
  14. Agree , Let the F2p at least get bare bones planes. We lost a couple squad members over this nonsense. Not everyone gives a crap about playing army.
