View Full Version : Playing IL-2 FB AEP too much?

I was out for my morning run this morning, and I had a very interesting experience. When I run, I take along my electronic suite of GPS and heartrate monitor to keep track of time, distance, and effort.

This morning, I was hitting a tough part of the run (more mental than physical), and I looked down at my watch to check my heart rate. My first thought was my RPM is running a bit too high (heart rate). I need to adjust my throttle (pace) and prop pitch (length of stride) to get my RPM back down.

I might need to back off a bit of AEP flying for a little while! Anyone else have experiences like these?

V/R,
Buzz

My only experience with exercise is walking, (slowly), to the fridge for another beer.

Although I do refer to this action as "fueling up".

How can you possibly hit anything in this game tanked up on beer?

As a Fw190 pilot im always worried about my energy state... our running circuit in school sports leads up a nice hill, and goes down shortly after the top again, the remaining part of the round is flat... i always try to keep as much of the energy i got with running down the hill to climb it up again, doesnt work well though, because of the turns, er, curves i face in until i reach the hill again...

Oh I dunno, I though being tanked up on beer was helpful when trying to score http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - G√ľnther Rall

i dunno, a bit of liquid courage can help in a dogfight, calms the nerves, course too much and you're all over the place, which generally means switching from fighters to bombers. tb-3 is a great plane to fly while drunk, slow, steady, flies like a canal barge. plus it was damn cold on those things at altitude, i for one would probably be at least little drunk on ops if i had to be a gunner on one.

DADADA1...I don't think you understand.

Beer is the universal excuse maker and ego booster.

Every time you shoot someone down you can say to yourself, "Wow. I'm amazing. I just shot that guy down and I'm completely TANKED !!"

Conversely, every time you get shot down you can say to yourself, "Ah, he was only able to get me because I'm completely TANKED !!"

LoL my best game ever online was when I was not in a state of mind that I would try driving a car in.Setting there one night drinking with my thottle hand I shot down 6 planes with a p40 in a full real server in one flight. errr it could have been 3 but cant remember if the paint schemes matched or not lol.it was nice to see planes taking off side by side though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
