LMG, missed you buddy. :medal:


^^ same

 

Thanks to everyone who showed up last night, even for just a half hour or so

 

SFMY and gerr22 tuned in from the other side of the world via shortwave.   Selamat Pagi and Lala Kahle to you guys!

 

Nue, Reito, NovaTempest and SFMY ran through the rest of us like a hot knife through butter, but everyone contributed

 

we flew a lot of Bomber Escort Mode last night at different tiers against lots of wild combinations of uptiered veteran bots


Unlike other BEM SNLs, the outcomes were not in doubt, because we had all those superpilots on our same teams

 

then came Allies vs Allies, because we flew Brits against Yanks at T8, but that was impossible to balance out well (see SFMY above ideas about balancing nations vs nations), so then we all flew favs at T8, still trying to balance the superpilots

 

I had an early Sunday morning call, so I ducked out before Ram the Rabbits.    Thanks to all!

and I cant make it on that day...

can someone stand in for me with the off colour jokes

foul language and general conversation in poor taste

thanks in advance

:amazed:


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.

I generally try to maintain that standard....but often fail.  My bad,  maybe more drinks are in order?

De-arse your bunks! Man the planes! The Fokkers are in site! BAM ba LAMMM!

So today on SNL I learned:

  • Disconnections and packet losses are rampant despite stable internet connection :amazed:
  • It's fun to fly a Bomber in Ram the Rabbit :great:
  • It's not fun to fly against Nue in his Javelin in Ram the Rabbit :ohmy:
  • The TSh-3 is borderline cheating in Ram the Rabbit, except vs Nue :kamikaze:

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

ty to all of you guys!      superpilots determined the outcomes of most battles, but we had some really close finishes

 

special thanks to Reito for stepping in to run the room after I discoed 3 times in a row after the battles

 

i had to rebuild the room 3 times, but my network connection was rock solid all night.      WG, please...

we flew several tiers in BEM, but last night we tried defending against entire teams of uptiered ILs, who rose up to swat us down

 

we never won a battle, veteran skill level ILs gunned us down at the same altitude that the bombers were flying


gj, Sergey Ilyushin!   who knew?    they struggled to get up there, but they floated around like butterflies at altitude


after that, a couple of tiers worth of German vs German and then T8 free-for-all, followed by Ram the Rabbit.   

so funny to watch LMG flip a T3 bomber around, trying to keep us from ramming him, then he'd kill us with his bombs

 


pilots, consider joining us in the training room on Saturday evenings, if you're not doing something important    

you'll be able to watch up close, and listen how superpilots make strategic decisions.     so interesting to learn this stuff

 

any skill level can join.     if I can contribute, anyone can contribute.      See you next Saturday and join us in Discord!

Hard to believe this thread got buried on the second page.

 

It was good to hear some familiar voices even if I didn't get to fly much. It is nice to know I can join a voice chat and feel at home and even get a laugh ;P

 

I have been having issues with the game as in, when the battle ends...my rig shuts down. I do know it is spring cleaning and time to blow this piece out. Plan on upgrading the vid card and PS and do some Iracing

 

Peace and prayers to all of ya's.

Hope to die fer ya again soon ;)

I have to admit, a few weeks in a row of that, and it gets tiresome.  I mean, if I want to get killed over and over, I'll just take my chances in the regular game and earn some silver.

 

I do miss hearing from ACE, tho.  He cracks me up.

yep       Reito and Nue realize that their skill levels skew every battle into a hunt-the-superpilots deathmatch struggle for the rest of us, and include SFMY with that group 

 

but that hunt-the-superpilots theme isn't fun for them, or us        really, it's like watching Godzilla and King Kong duke it out while the rest of us run screaming through the streets 

 

Rei has volunteered on his own volition to fly a lower tier plane, or a orphan unloved plane many times, or even a combination of the two, and i'm sure Nue and SF would, too

 

but the final death toll is always usually the same 

 

i just don't know what to do to balance this out...    or even if it's possible            even over-stacking the number of pilots against them appears futile

 

i love the constant flow of strategy tips from Reito and SF, and i've learned from watching Nue beat our attempts to outflank him, but it's just become harder to flip on the PC each Saturday 

 

i'm a bad loser, i've admitted that, and i certainly don't need to win every battle        but seeing scores double, triple, even quadruple my own in the same battle is just numbing 

 

there's just not a way to equalize the playground         except in T1, where it works perfectly there, but nobody wants a steady diet of that

let's go low tier 'h2h only' for a while...        far less chance of one shot deletion        hammer away at each other with LMGs       top scientists say there's 36% less butthurt

 

higher tiers will be reserved for PvE battles like BEM and Invasion        Reito kept suggesting that last Sat, and idk why i didn't set it up        ty, R

 

i haven't been very focused lately     

 

i'm sry, guys

When you're not in a GAA, where machine guns don't quite cut it :hiding:

that makes sense       no easy solution, unless everyone flies a low tier GA          what is the lowest tier GA?    (other than the very rare Pegasus)

oh no, brother       no effing way       some noteworthy SNL changes coming this upcoming SN        tell her you're in lockdown  and you'll make it up later

 

 

66%+ WR will fly 2 tiers down from 66%- WR       that would include me, i'm self-reporting right here right now         it was my original vision for SNL back last August  

 

i'll ask everyone just this one question        "Are you higher or lower than 66%?"

 

superpilots might get salty and leave, but...      

 

i would love to try out some unspecialized planes that normally i wouldn't even -consider- flying against superpilots        wow, that could be an event right there 

 

superpilots in fully-upped T6s flying against just regular folks in bone stock T8s, for example        190 A-5 against a BV 210?    

 

we may get wiggly with the rules with certain tiers, because there's such a giant leap between T7 and T9, and maybe others 

 

let's hear some ideas?

everyone is welcome, and everyone contributes, so please come have fun with us

 

join us in the training room at about 9:25 EDT tonight        first battle begins promptly at 9:30         we usually fool around until almost midnight

I've forgotten the name of Wowp's free channel that they bought for us, you might look back at the first posts of this thread
