Well, up until today's announcement that HL will be closing, I've only flown on HL. So today I installed the ubi client and after much fooling around with the installation, (thanks Hunter, I wouldn't have been able to succeed without your help), I joined a DF.

Now on HL I regularly got my a** handed to me, maybe three online kills in 40 attempts. Most of the time I got tutored in the fine art of defensive flying just before trying to dig my grave with a flying metal shovel.

So I go onto ubi. Not many choices for an IL-2 Sturmovick only player. I shot down 5 planes in less than 20 minutes! Now I didn't learn THAT much on HL. I guess the server was REALLY easy.

And that's another thing. HL made it easy to see the difficulty level you were entering. Maybe I just need to work the interface a little more.

If this is indicative of ubi servers, I hope HL's demise is premature, or another decent service goes online. I don't like dying, but heck, how else you gonna learn?

Flying on Hyperlobby (for as long as it lasts) as Vlad_TheImpaler

Flying on ubi (if I have to) as VladNabakov

And thanks ubi, I used to be rexcarrs!

OK. I've figured it out. I have to be VladNabakov on ubi game service, but I can be myself on the forum!

Does all this mulitple personality thing make you crazy?

Uhhh..there are several of you who don't really need to reply.

Dunno. Maybe. You're a better judge of that than I am.

I think it might have something to do w/ playing the original IL2. I've been playing it on HL and Ubi and whereas in FB I get shot down a lot, I tend to be one of the top players on IL2 servers. I'm Stick_Fiend btw in case anyone wants to make me eat my words.

Have any of you people heard of ASE?

It shows everything.

I've used ASE and it has some excellent features. BUT, there is no chat function so there is no sense of an online community, and you have to always set your name before you fly, otherwise games are filed with players named "default".

I don't think HL is going anywhere /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif No need to worry there, wait for Jiri to get back from his holiday.....

Ubi.com comes with the game, so overall you tend to see less experienced virtual pilots there. I am generalising though! There are good pilots at Ubi and good pilots at HL too.

More "Medium" Settings games on Ubi and (in comparison) more "Cockpit On" (etc) Games on HL. Just IMHO of course /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif
