stir the pot.  i'm a 2012 vet from Hawken, and saw a familiar vet IGN in a match and the text popped up "well, look who's here".  and never saw him again.  i suggest :( the entire dev crew do 2 things:  take a few passes in flight school, and go skeet shooting or game-fowl hunting.  apply those mechanics to the game. 

you bump the stick or yoke all the way back, and you don't hug the target's tail--you skid through the air until aerodynamics start working, then you have to center the stick so you don't stall.  the game is just YOLO driving around, what with noobs, bot crowding, and jerky, freezing screens (not my system's fault, i'm running a 8350, rx550, and 8gRam, on a fat pipe).  this not acceptable in any "MMO" game, but this is so glorious of a game i hope it stops alienating new folks, and quits bleeding vets (which incidently is exactly what happened to Hawken, over 100,000 registered, with <40 ingame).

Be Excellent to each other!  -O.

I dunno about the population, but all you noobs shooting me down are starting to tick me off to no end.  Of course, I only fly the lesser used planes and not the meta planes so I am relying on my skill to overcome the plane /sarc.  

 

No, really, ya'll are starting to tick me off.  Stop shooting me down.  I suck, I know it, you don't have to remind me each and every match.

Amen brother.
I seriously many of the  game devs have been in a real aircraft in a long while. And if any have, they've long been kicked off the project. The game needs to return to it's roots of a arcade/simulator hybrid and appeal to a pilot/flight enthusiast audience instead of your average gamer with the attention span of a small child.

The old game was much better IMO.

lol, ah yes , the ole gagger, a slang term for a certain bud about to be legalized here in Canada,

plant material used to enhance many aspects of life, gaming for one

have a hoot, take a toke, smoke a joint, 

cures everything now they say, i'm wondering if i should get back into it ?,.. hmmm

anyways i digress,

 

nice videos Chuck, i loved 1.19 but have adapted to 2.0, its still fun, just different.

 

to the op, i think population is definitely increasing, i had several 12 vs 12 matches several weeks ago during the last event!

just don't play on Mondays, no one is on then :)

Ah, memories. Looking at Chuck’s videos, I get all misty-eyed about how much INFO you had on-screen at any given time. Gimme. Also, I miss altitude bands a little bit. I am mostly still running BnZ, but I feel bad for Yaks...

...But I am enjoying my time back in 2.X, when it works. Love the cap system, the scoring by plane types. What bugs me is... the bugs. And that radiators are kinda junk.

But mostly the crazy instability.
