Now that the allies have a Jet that did fight in ww2 will the 262 be enabled.

Maybe in jet vs jet servers.

My guess is that on most dogfight servers they will both be removes, together with the other rocket planes.

Yes, except on your PC. They will be blocked. ;D

Seriously though Osiris, I hope there are more of them cause I know how much you love to fly them.

I can only hope the common ignorance finally gets toned down a little...

Since we now have multiple interesting jet- and rocketplanes, I really hope they will make a comeback to the online servers.

I hope so, but probably only on jet-dedicated servers, because my feeling is, with all these diff jets now, not many would fly prop planes.

Come on guys, you cannot have free-jet servers AND prop planes! what will naturally happen is everyone will go jet and dominate the server.

The only options are:

1. have prop servers only.

2.Have Jet servers only.

3.Have prop servers with a VERY LIMITED amount of jets allowed. I would say 2 at most if using the ME163 on say a 10-12 man server(and the Jets will probably still dominate).

You guys whine, but none with brains is going to play a totally free prop vs jets server for longer than a few seconds cos all will go Jet. It`s like asking everyone to allow the gun (which you want), yet hoping everyone else will still fight with the sword.

Get logical, chaps!

Well, just think about it now! We have the perfect Star Wars scenario planes now! the YP-80 and BI-1 vs the Me-163 and Me-262 with an He-162 on both sides maybe?

I dont know about other servers, but ours ran Online in the Hyper Lobby for a very long time, before we had a break about 3 months ago.

We always allowed the Me 262 in all DF server Scenarios from 1944 Onward, because we hosted historical DF server Scenarios.

Eventualy when we get back to Hosting we will once again allow the 262 at all times after 1944.
Unfortunately because it never saw action in WW2 we will not allow the P-80 into any WW2 DF server Scenario we host Online.

However we are building an Early Korean war DF server for the P-80, on the United Nations side.

I'm going to allow jets, but not jets mixed with props. I find the new jets facinating! I may mix it up some and possibly do a map or two with jets and heavy bombers, like host 20 players with 15 bombers vs 5 jets. Who knows, I'm just excited as hell right now and thining out loud :-)

Some of the best fights I had(EAW) were jet vs prop. Sometimes lasting 30 min or more - faint, attack, counter,...... Now if you are the arcade instant gratification type, it is undestandable why a mix would not be wanted.

Servers should go by years. Me262 is clearly '44 fighter, while He162/P80 are '45 fighters.I don't understant why Me262 are not allowed on all '44 servers? LW focused on jet fighter and achieved some results. Others focused on more convetionla constuctions with excellent results (P51D, La73xB20). If LW dropped Me262 and focused for ex. on prop figter who knows what they had in '44 ready?

Altitude, speed, manoeuvre and.... CRASH!

Hmmm depends on your preferences. I, for sure, am going for the new "crappy planes" :D

I would like to see some historcally accurate coop servers. Yep thats what I would like to see. Everybody dogfights, dogfights, dogfights, dogfights. Boring.

What does that have to do with jets & props being on the same server? "Historically accurate" are the key words. I dont think during the war allied pilots said "No jets you Krauts! It aint fair!"

Yeah, I don't see the problem. I've bullseyed plenty of 262s in my LaGG3 offline.

Strengths and weaknesses. Strengths and weaknesses.

There are fair comments from both sides, while i have bagged my share of 262's online they do tend themselves towards all jet servers, at least the 262 needed a fair bit of skill and if you did get every noob and his uncle taking them you could quickly make them blow up their own engines!

I would definately go for the splitting of dogfight servers down to all jet or all prop.

coop offers some interesting scenarios with escorting B17s in your 51 that are attacked by the jets. could be a lot of fun.

Hmm, sorry i must be in the wrong forum i thought this was a world war 2 aerial combat simulation game.

Every aircraft has its weaknesses, if you are foolish enough to get bounced by a B&Z Jet jockey then thats your own fault, i fail to see why it should be banned from DF servers as if they never engaged in combat. Like i said they all have their weaknesses, one mean look at a 262 and it catches light anyway, or get them on takeoff and landing just like what happened in real life funnily enough.

So you think everyone will jump in Jets do you, well thats fine becuase its all relative and pretty soon that open server will be full of jets, trying to turn with each other, then i'll jump in my Yak 9U and shoot the lot of you down, simple.

S!
greater green has late war scenarios that allow the 262. I think that is more than fair and is historically accurate. I really do not like flying a mix of era planes. Things get lopsided. Besides in the late war time frame the 262's are about the only thing that keeps the allies constantly looking for, so they dont get smacked with one burst. Of course once the allies hear there are 262's taking off they all get there asap to try and keep us grounded hehe.
