    I started as an online IL2 pilot right out of the box and until now (due to the near full switch server drought) I hadn't been much into the online missions. However recently I have begun a campaign and good lord the AI is STOOOOOOOOOOOOPID!

    They crash into hill sides, crash into you while trying to form up, and T&B on the deck with the Me110! When escorting they watch with cross eyes and drool running down their chins while you get shot up and take forever to get a bandit off your tail. How many times have you been shredded to peices and as you are hurtling to earth you hear "I got it, hang on!". PLEASE! I watched a bandit crawl right up my six, fly past my wingman who I ordered to cover me, and blow me to peices while my wingman just watched!

    So please stop whining about flight models. They are fine in comparison to the ******ed AI. Remember our whining does pay off. Oleg has fixed many things we have complained about. You all have had Oleg so busy tweaking flight models that I am sure very little work has been put into improving the AI.

    I realize that most community members are online players but I am sure you have all falled victim to the poor AI. Play offline for just one mission and you will see.

    Thanks for your support.

    They have done ~alot~ for AI, but I agree the AI does not get the same press coverage as FM.

    Is this a call for a whole new class of whiners, or are you trying to convert some of the FM Whiners to AI Whiners ? Personally, I could go for an overall decrease in whining.

    Still, the AI could be better. I expect in BoB it will be. It isn't as bad as it used to be, the midair collision problem is almost gone in AEP. I say 'almost' because I haven't seen a lot of large AI formations since AEP came out. The sniper tailgunners are less of a problem in 2.01, but they can still hit an easy target if you give them one. Even in 1.21 I have had a campaign mission for an A6M2 where I can get one B-17 with relative impunity. I've been getting lazy (and greedy) on the *second* B-17 so I didn't get a completion until the second bomber just killed my engine - and not ME.

    I'm playing the Romanian campaign now, and I will say, my wingmen are idiots. Of course, I'm not much better, but at least I try to cover them once in a while. They just let me get shot...plus they kill steal with the best of them. Yesterday, I shot up an I-16 real good, flaming, burning, smoking...then my wingman, good ole number seven, shoots about one 7.98mm round into him and it's "Good kill number seven".

    Okay, I'm done...bed time. Night all.

    Oleg or someone does pay us Offwhiners a small amount of heed because its much improved over what we had to live with in the original FB.

    There is still room for much improvement but its headed in the right direction with every patch. I am really excited to see what they offer with BoB.

    Ha ha ha S! Ivan.

    Actually, combine the AI tactics with the American voice tracks and you'll have hours of fun. I think it's nice how "Dumb and Dumber" have been incorpoated into the game.
    When flying with AI I feel like a St.Bernard in the Alps trying to rescue an African tribe in an avalanche. Worse than that, I don't even have a barrel of rum tied around my neck .
    I guess AI could use a little tweaking but from what I've heard, it's not so easy.
