We are currently in the early phase of creating a Pacific War that will use PF in the future. At this point, missions are being flown using FB to create a Japan vs. China Campaign. As may be expected, Allied squads outnumber Japanese so an invitation is being put out to the Ubi Community for Japanese squads to visit the following web site and consider if we would have mutual interests for this Pacific War.

I'll be hosting missions in HyperLobby in the evenings and weekends so drop by if you are interested.

I'm sure I'll be flying some Japanese aircraft as there is in inordinate of flight simmers that can't count.

14 vs 6 is ridiculous guys! and I've a feeling it will be worse when PF actually does come out. Hey, a tight group of Ki84's at altitude with decent pilots should wreak havoc. I know everyone will want to fly their pet Wildcat/Hellcat/Corsair, but I'm really hoping it won't be as bad as it appears to be looming.

Its the same now. Nobody wants to fly the suposedly undermodeled German aircraft....so it means that despite the fact that I want to fly 50/50 I fly 90/10 these days because blue is always the team thats behind in the numbers.

Nothing is going to change http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Maybe it will change for the better. People want turn fighters...the JNAF and JAAF have it in spades http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Sounds like another cry for AUTO TEAM BALANCE?

Well I can't wait for the game to come out. Not only will our war have the carrier duels, but we'll have ground pounding on Guadalcanal, New Guinea and Burma!

Again my college education has failed me, I didn't realize all world war 2 air combat missions required each side to have equal numbers... darn them for not making it equal, fair, and just in wartime!

(to answer thread, I think 609 will help out IS by flying japanese - although then pf comes out we are flying US)

Hmm...it seems the only plane that is competitive with Allied planes is the KI...so no, I think I'll stick with Allied planes. Based on the current modeling (which I believe is fairly accurate) in pre-KI scenarios an experienced Allied squad is going to slaughter the Japanese using just about any model Allied plane. It's going to be ugly.

well we are an axis squad and we intend to stay that way ,atleast i am because i dont know much about the jap planes and they sure have some good looking planes so its more intresting to fly for me other than the over hyped stuff like the ugly corsairs and willdcat's

BUT as a Dutch man im very intrested in some historical Dutch east-indies campaign flying P-40's or B-25's http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

im sure just like in FB, there will be P-38's taking off from blue carriers/airfields as well as Zero's taking off from the red's carriers/airfield, this is to be expected. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Ma'am; We just gotta find a place for you in here someware.

I'm glad to see the 609 filling a void for North American axis squad.....Things will become interesting!

Obviously, if historical accuracy is to be maintained then the sides will be uneven...on behalf of the Japanese in early scenarios and on behalf of the Allies in late ones. The caveat to this is, again, the experience level of online pilots and the limitations of the game engine.

I'm not in favor of auto-team balance. I would like to be able to fly whichever side I feel so inclined or with my squadmates. I don't mind uneven numbers because uneven doesn't necessarily mean unbalanced.

The more players there are on a specific server, the less important slightly uneven become. 12 to 8 isn't unreasonable in many cases, but 18 to 8 is.

I'm not going to make a plea for even teams any more than I already have. People will do what they will do, but how is it fun to be on either side if the teams are extremely unbalanced?

While unfair to forecast scenarios for a title that has yet to be released, a certain amount of speculation seems to loom badly for historically accurate missions online.

There are a number of things that may be done to potentially rectify this, not the least of which would be to exercise some artistic license in the name of playability and fairness.

I will fly both sides as I do now and am desperately looking forward to yet another chapter in the IL2 legacy. I guess time will tell.

Not in Iron Skies missions. Wildcard tries to stick to historical realism as much as possible. Occasionally a substitute plane will fill in for one that's missing in FB, but the Japanese will never have P-38s as there's no comparable type, and the US have plenty of carrier a/c of their own to fly.

Cheers!

I'm taking minute to check in as we just finished another Japan vs. China DCG generated mission. We've gained a few new squads since my previous post.

Missions feature the clasic P-40 vs. A6M2 Zero match-up that compose 30-40% of the aircraft. We also use I-16 and I-153 that Russia provided to the Chinese as well as Cr.42 and G-50 for the axis to simulate A4N1 and A5M2 types respectively. AI bombers are also used for these missions (R-10 stand in for B5N Tenzan, SB_2 are "Lily" Bombers and Tu-2 were provided to China by Russia).

Never!

I don't know why you guys are crying about people not flying Japanese..

All this time I thought there was an overabundance of "skilled" Ki84 12 year olds to be had in public servers... Try recruiting them maybe?

I have one idea http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif if you want more friends join to play at Zero team

change the score system..!?

well...if red team win the mission then all red members will get +500 for their work and all blue friends will get -500 for their lose.

what do you think? ...LOL , if this idea work

you will see alot of friends will join "kamikaze team" for sure http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif


Oh... and we may ask oleg to let a player join in AAA gun station at a carrier (for our a new year's gift in next pf patch ) to shoot that "kamikaze team"
