Just interested to see the mix, and maybe also get a feel for which servers tend to attract the squads and which the lone wolves, if such a distinction exists.

Please note the "more often"; I'm sure many of you fly online both in squad and alone.

I've seen plenty squad members fly alone on the same server. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Personally, I avoid servers with 5 or more squadies in it. It's no fun being gang raped.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Nothing beats working with a talented, fun squad.

The "DogFight" craze for me has been long gone. I really enjoy flying missions but I do enjoy doing that as a squad or with a wingman. What I am really enjoying right now is sitting back and flying the airplanes. Using power settings, fuel managment, navigating without the inflight GPS system as well as the inflight radar systems.

Get a wingman, you will have a friend for a long time.

I am currently not in a squad, but wherever circumstances permit I try to fly in a team oriented manner. I live longer and my team is more likely to succeed that way.

i fly alone on HL most of the time. like tully however i try to get some team work going. most of the time that means to shadow a team mate and keep his six clear while he goes for a kill. not that the team mates notice in most cases but thats the way i enjoy the game best.

plenty of coop flying through direct ip with a bunch of close friends but like i said.. on HL i m usually by myself.

I play co-ops with freinds from the same community but generally DF alone but end up on WC ts so sqaud type antics without the other bits.

I'm in a squad and usually fly with one or more of them. If we're all on a server that needs balance deperately, we'll split up ourselves.

One of the things I do is go to our real-time stats page to see who is actually on and what side is in need. If you fly greatergreen you can simply bookmark this page http://www.greatergreen.com/stats/il2/ and before you go in, simply check it out. I do.

I still fly alone at times and when I do I usually alter my tactics a bit. I go a little higher, look around ALOT more, and bug out more quickly if things look really bad.

OT: But is Warclouds going to put there stats up any point soon?

Welcome aboard Deano..... You dont haveto know anyone. Just go to Hyperlobby which can be obtained from a link in the Sturmovik Essentials thread in my sig. DL it and find a server and fly. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I buddy up with 1 or two good pilots with similer flying styles if I can find them, but I normally can't. I am technically in a squad but we meet so rarely that I'm not sure it even counts.
