  1. Nobody promoted me to member, so I got bounced out after a week. Any chance of a return?
  2. Hi guys, just touching base in here for the first time.
  3. If you are experiencing a lot of issues with lag in game, or you see players zipping all over leave light lines and smoke everywhere, go into preferences and disable netcode3. It's helped a lot for me. Restarting your game client after a few hours play can help (sometimes), but after longer periods of play I will restart my computer just to freshen things up. Also, take a look at either AVG or AVAST anti virus, they both have options for activating "Gaming Mode", which automatically stops programs and clears the way for much cleaner and faster game play.
  4. A lot of it is just practice, the basic 200m setting is standard. One trick is to keep your weapon zoomed in after you've fired it (Keep the aim button pressed). This lets you see your fall of shot more accurately. For new players, I suggest aiming at your targets belt buckle. If he's closer than you think, your shot will go higher and still hit him. You can also practice at the firing range in offline mode, or at the training server. In game, try to avoid firing at enemies that are moving perpendicular to yourself until you have a better hang on the adjustments needed to hit. Also, be patient, use cover, and change positions after you have fired.
  5. I had to do a full install after the patch, that's usually required for me. Only twice out of the past 10 patches have they worked right the first time around.
  6. Ever since the last big patch, this has been happening. I play for short periods of time, no more than 5-10 mins before it starts. The game freezes, and a windows crash report appears on screen "searching for solution". It also locks up my computer so I cannot use my mouse. I have to CRTL+ALT+DEL to get out, and use the arrow keys to select "sign out". Then I can log back in normally and restart everything. This only happens with this game, no other program. I am running Windows 10, and I have netcode3 turned off due to all the lag/warpy crap I see with it on. I had the same problems when it was active. All my drivers are up to date. What's going on with this game?
  7. Tuesday is usually ASN. Wednesday is traditionally BK squad night. If we can get enough folks onboard from across the Allied side, we can ruin their evening. BK usually begins at 2100 EST. I can be on sooner, maybe 1800 EST. We can always target sometime this weekend too, though I may be working Saturday.
  8. Any chance of a squad night starting up sometime soon? We need folks showing up to really make things worthwhile, and not just squaddies. We need Allied players showing up in numbers to get a few smash mouth battles going.
  9. See here,
  10. Simple fixes, requiring no changes to the game, thus costing nothing. 1. Learn to shoot an AA gun properly. 2. Moving targets are harder to hit, that being said, MOVE! Suicide diving a bomb onto the target is nothing more than using the Dr. Strangelove tactic all the way to the target, so have fun in game.
  11. Gun boats yes, MTBs, yes, E-Boats, yes. You could even look at armed trawlers/Corvettes for coastal AI controlled convoys. Have AI controlled convoys bringing supplies for US/British forces on the continent, with limited AI escorts. Let players provide for more escort vessels and aircraft. That will up the naval game. Later on, look at adding light cruisers and up.
  12. You'd have to expand the map to realistic scale for heavy bombers to come into their own. It would also be the only way to bring in real artillery. I'd settle for HMG teams and medium mortars though, plus mobile AA guns.
  13. Quit checking, they'll post it once it's done. World of Warships for me until then.
  14. I'm still plugging along here. Every 10 minutes another batch of my cookies come outta the oven. I made 96 yesterday, 96 more today.
  15. Where's the update at? I get a 10057 error every time I try to connect to the server the normal way. Edit: Still down I see, oh well, back to baking cookies. Merry Christmas!
