  1. Guilty as charged. I wish I could take credit for being honorable, but (embarrassingly) I simply ran out of ammo. I have a very bad habit of holding the trigger even when I know that my ammo isn't going to hit the target. I had no clue that I was running low on ammo until it was too late. I also wanted to let you know that you're a better tailgunner than most pilots. You were eating me up and I wouldn't have been surprised if you had received a kill credit. Your tailgunning skill is probably what stressed me out enough that I wouldn't take my finger off the trigger. The only thing I can take credit for is not calling for backup and reporting your exact location. Honestly, I probably would have if there had been other people on my mission (another friendly lifted from Abbeville but wasn't on my mission and you had gone pretty far south by that time). Thanks for the message. I didn't think I would ever find out who you were. I'm glad that you had fun, and it was fun for me as well even though it was slightly embarrassing to me to run out of ammo. I'm sure we'll meet again and maybe work as teammates at some point because I switch from Allied to Axis on different campaigns. Salute to you Sir.
  2. I got my new license plate in the mail yesterday. I doubt many people will understand what it means, but maybe a few people will ask. Although I don't play nearly as much as I'd like, I love this game. In a related story, my car has almost 200,000 miles and hasn't been doing too good lately. S!
  3. I would like to start by saying that I absolutely love this game. I find it very challenging, and I enjoy a good challenge. I'm only offering my opinion in the hope of improving the game and acquiring and keeping new players. I think this game is heading in the right direction, and I most certainly could not do a better job myself. Here is my biggest gripe about the game currently: Incomplete Wiki help pages. I have only looked through the Air Force Guides mostly, but there are several links with nothing on the pages. I believe this makes the game look incomplete and unpolished to new players. Here is an example: https://wiki.wwiionline.com/view/Understanding_The_Range_Indicator This particular page should tell about the halos around aircraft and accurately determining how far away they are. I haven't been able to find this information anywhere in the help pages (I have been able to figure it out through trial and error and talking with other players). This is only one example. I believe that 1st impressions are very important. Broken links and incomplete help pages don't look good to new players. Especially in a game this difficult with such a steep learning curve. Again, I'm only trying to improve the game and offer constructive criticism. Thanks for all the hard work and the hours of fun while making new friends.
  4. I'm a returning player after about a 4 or 5 year absence. It's great to be back. Back in the day, I would receive text messages to my phone about the status of the game (I believe it was through Twitter even though I've never had a Twitter account). My question: What is currently the most reliable and quickest way to receive status updates about the game? It doesn't matter to me if it's through text messages or email. Thanks for the help.
