WHY IS IT THAT IF YOU DO WELL WITH FIRST PLANE,SCORE HIGH AND STAY ALIVE, WHY DO YOU ONLY GET ONE PLANE. IS IT A HANDICAPP FOR GOOD PLAYERS OR WHAT? IT AFFECTS THE WHOLE TEAM AND SEEMS ODD THAT YOU GET PUNISHED FOR SUCCESS!!,  HAM,

After a certain time, the game turns off respawning. This is called the Squall line, and the announcer warns about it 45 seconds before it occurs, then one more when it arrives and death is permanent. A notification also shows up in the upper right corner of the screen at this point and it doesn't go away for the rest of the match. According to the devs, that's to allow an alternate victory condition aside of the usual score limit. It's been a hot topic of discussion in the past, and most of us agree that it could use some changes :sceptic:


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

i fully support him voicing his opinion about any part of the game that he doesn't like!

 

i know that he knows how it works, he's got almost a million battles already, i assume that he's just letting off steam about something

 

he's a good pilot, i've flown against him in many battles

 

edit:  see you in another battle soon, brother!

There are lots of medals and awards that to give tokens for performing well with a single spawn...

and the weird thing is you earn more points by dying at least once during a mission.

There's reasons for that, possibly in some map configurations the wait between respawns is shorter than flying from an airfield to a point of high activity

There are even more reasons... shoddy WG programming.

 

Dying resets the built in diminishing returns, allowing you to earn more mastery points.


I don't want to hurt you... I just want to kill you!

trikke, I agree with everything you said, and I dread seeing hamhockjones on the other team. 

Anyway what am I missing in his complaint, I really do not understand what he means by 'why do you get only one plane?'

Is it simply the squal line factor he's speaking of?

but sometimes you can change out your plane, so...

And of course in a close game crashing right before the squall is a way to get a full health plane

um get good? But seriously it happens to everyone at some point or another. Happened to more 4 games in a row over the weekend during the Invasion mode. Top guy, didn't get shot down at all, and as soon as we were out of reserves, I'd get pegged. It happens, whatever, just move onto the next match.

hamhock knows that I will... without a doubt, intentionally ram him every chance I get...

he shoots me from a distance

:facepalm:


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.
