How many different campaigns do you play at the same time? Which aircrafts, periods and maps?

I guess i`m different to everyone else in that I only ever fly ONE Campaign at a time. I flew a VERY long Soviet campaign, then a short USA and Japanese Campaign and now I`m on a British campaign finally...

I like to focus and concentrate on one, rather than impetuously switching around unrealistically. It takes longer, but you become more into the faction you`re flying with and therefore more immersed.

What I`m hoping to do soon is my personal GRAND WWII Campaign, where I fly from France (using Lowengrin`s DCG) to Britain, then transfer to Russia (as happened in reality when traing the Soviets to use Brit planes), fight for them for a while, then back to D-Day Britain where I fly escourts for the US, using some of their planes! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm with seafire; I try to play one at a time. I've completed numerous LW offline campaigns (conf.ini campaign length set to medium with enemy setting to hard), a P38 BoE campaign and just started on a VVS one.

It's interesting to note survival/kill rates between flying for different nationalities in the campaigns. I've never shot so many planes down so easily as in the current VVS campaign but I think it's probably due to the way that the AI tries to turn fight...bad idea, especially in 110s and 109Es.

I play offline campaigns one at a time. It,s interesting to see the change you can make to kill to loss ratio when you are promoted to a rank with command.

I always set out to fly one at a time but...........

Lw= 110 camp all available years.
Hungerian= last 2 years only, 109 F2
Rumanian= all available years.All the IAR 80's 81's
Finnish= all years,J8A. B-239,109 F2
Russian=all years going from yak 1,yak 1B, Yak 9, 9D, yak 3.
Russian= 1st year P-39 available progressing through all varients until P-63.
British=Extreme-Ones Camp.

I'm a plane ****, I'll fly anything once and twice if it made me shiver.

I always have just enough fuel to arrive at the scene of my crash.

I usually play one campaign at a time everything on default. Favourite map is Gulf Of Finland. From 1941. Favourite birds; I-153,Hurricane,La-5,P-40. On LW, favourites are 109F4 (this one I like the most along with E4 & G10). And Finn G.50.

Crimea is also cool map, Kuban too --- in campaign u can see a lot of different birds flying for LW on these maps (Rumanian, Slovakian).

I would like to point one weakness in campaign mode --- it is weird to fly entire war in the same regiment. I'm often in doubt what regiment to choose, especially when flying for VVS.

So, as I see, I´m different. I like to play two or even three campaigns at the same time. Why? Easy, I like to be able to switch between a variety of planes. I don´t mean to switch from a 109 G6 to a K4, but from German to Russian, American...etc.

At the moment I´m at three campaigns:

1- USA BOE campaign in the P51, preparing for Operation Overlord.
2- Luftwaffe BOE campaign in the Fw 190A8 intercepting american bombing raids.
3- VVS campaign in the La 7 on the eastern front.

Well, that´s it...and I´m anxious to start with the BOE Ardennes campaign in the P38!
