Does this game still have a large player base? Is it still worth buying il-2 to get into a WW2 flight sim?

Yes, get the 1946 dvd and download hyperlobby. You will see upwards of 1000 people on hyperlobby on a good night.

Its the DEFINITIVE WW2 aircraft sim mate.

There are around 800-1000 players online every night in various CO-Ops, wars and servers.

300+ flyable planes.

CHeck out UKdedicated servers for a good place to start. They have 3 servers, each with different difficulty settings, depedning on what you want, and are very helpful guys.

If you are serious about WW2 flight sims then IL2 1946 is by far the best choice. Its a steepish learning curve to learn to fly a WW2 plane well, and many have been flying online for 5 years, so be ready to be shot down a lot while you learn.

The historical servers where, for example, 10 Me110's covered by Bf109F's are making a sneak raid on the South of England, and they are interecepted by Spitfires and Hurricanes, are just fantastic.

Check some of these out :-
