    Omg Off again. Had enough ....

    Just applied for LOA again.

    My heart is so not in this game at the moment.

    With Xmas rapidly approaching I'm pulling down 14+ hours 7 days a week, and so when I log on I want to spend a couple of hours relaxing.

    NOT A FUCKING CHANCE with the way this game is right now.

    It's head on after head on. Ramming after ramming. Bombers chasing bombers. This ain't a plane simulation game ...... it's just a retarded fucked up mish mash of all that is wrong with online gaming!!

    I try to do everything right.

    In a fighter. Climb at the beginning of the game, and I get rammed by pricks who are diving like fuck for the shitbowl.

    I start in a bomber. I climb. I get rammed by a friendly barrel rolling prick who didn't bother to check to his side.

    I'm screaming out on the chat to ignore the bases, we ain't got time to bring the airfield down. Go for GTs. Totally ignored.

    So on, and so, and so on ........

    It's got so bad, that I haven't even got the inclination to do any more videos.

    I have another operation scheduled for Feb 05th 2015. This time for my right wrist and elbow. So, I've put in for LOA up to 01st March 2015.

    Anyway, enough ranting. I might say something that I regret.

    I've spoken to a few people about my misgivings ..... but here is not the time or place to air them right now.

    I'll try and look in over the next few months, but no guarantees.

    I'll just have to make do with Top Eleven: Be a Football Manager on Facebook for now.

    Instead of going on LOA, can I recommend trying a different WT mode? In realistic battles this kind of stuff hardly ever happens. In fact, the only times I ever get rammed is when I get so kill hungry that I ram the guy I just killed. I can't remember the last time I got rammed by someone else.

    Or perhaps go full bore, buy yourself a joystick and get a headtracker set up. I know I may sound like a giddy school child when I talk about what I just did myself, but the immersion and fun of the game triples 3 fold when you actually feel like you're sitting in the cockpit. Even for other games like IL-2 1946, or DCS.


    One thing I try to instill in you guys is a joy of flying, even if it's a cartoon plane. If it's not fun, then you gotta figure out what you can do to make it fun. Whether it's another mode, another flying game, or even another game that AOD plays.

    Totally understand you, there are some really bad days in this game...

    However, gotta agree with Danne.. Try some RB - there are some issues (imho) there as well but it sure have its strenghts compared to derp-cade! A good alternative (though I suck at medium to high tiers personally!). Or tanks? Had the first proper tank games today 8well, yesterday) and I kinda had fun! Really!

    Otherwise just have another go after the op and see how it feels! Still gonna keep bugging you anyway so you won´t get away! I know where you live..

    Toe-
    I feel Your pain indeed. I try changing tactics, using different planes,different Br's,etc. Tends to help a bit..

    One thing I suggest is We put together a AOD-Arcade play squad..Yeah,a lot of us play,but there's a steady "Group' that's on pretty regularly.Lets see if We cant get some 8v8 matches going vs other teams. That helps w/the ramming-etc. Also,Note that gameplay is cyclical. I've been on a year and hv seen 2x that "ramming' happens for a month or so,then calms down.Doesn't go away,but vastly chills out..then, a few months later,it comes back..Like herpes.....finally

    Having grown up flying in Stearman Bi-plane cropdusters w/My Grandfather,I have a view of flying not many in this day/age get.That of the open cockpit and engine roar in Your ears! Been at 40kft in a 767 and at 10'ft in a biplane screamin along at 95kts...Point is,ya gotta love flying.I know it's hard to fly when people keep flying INTO Your cockpit (theres a joke there somewhere) but it's worth a try...Either way,at least stop in and submit a lil verbal abuse now/again would ya?We'll miss ya!

    OMG this is how I have felt for about the last week. I may try out realistic, but I have only gotten my ass kicked there supremely. Good luck to you Toe, and hopefully we will see you back.

    Yeah - teams made up mostly German head-on planes (they are good at other things ffs!) - it gets boring very quickly. And you still see a bunch of shitheads chasing a burning fucking Wellington to the end of the world...

    Playing realistic together helsp alot - full squad.. :)

    If anyone ever wants to try realistic just find me in one of the realistic rooms I'm normally flying solo.

    Played some RB yesterday and had real fun! Then hit the wrong friggin´ button and got a AB today - had my A6M2-N as the highest, the rest Ki-27, A5M4 etc. Faced Fucker Wulfs, Yak-9Ts etc. Gaijin are seriously retarded..
    The game was of course filled with head ons, bombers chasing bombers (J-87B2 chasing a Wellie to fuck far away and dying to the gunners)...

    Sorry to hear Toe, Maybe Dave should fly back over and drag you back to your cockpit...

    Be sure to at least lurk the AOD forums once in a bit Toe, but cant say I blame you either the state of the individual play or the need for people to grind of WT makes it harder to get players to team up. not to mention a match maker that fails to place squads of more than 2 in match.

    I have unlocked mostly everything (expet a couple new japs jets) and Aced most of them as well, I have all the premium planes so grind is pretty much complete and still find myself playing solo.

    The broken match maker has made it virtually impossible to fly high tiers/BR games in a squad of 3 or 4, all you will do is sit in the Que, and never get a match, but patch after patch Gajin fails to listen.. you would think it would be simple to match the larger squads first

    Gajin is breaking WT for team play and squadrons but they dont seem care, instead they made it possible for individuals to get team(squad) points while still flying solo..

    it is clear the focus is on individual play, that is a shame considering all the fun we all had together in groups last year.

    Its almost impossible to sync squads now as well, that is a pitty.

    8 vs 8 is problematic to its a core...until squadrons battles go to smaller groups of 6 vs 6 or even 4 vs 4 , they will remain a pipe dream for all those accepts clans that will ONLY play Squad battles and are dedicated to them only.

    The game is equally frustrating and I find myself playing less and less as well and when I do i find myself solo for various reasons, too high a BR, I prefer US server only in jets, cant squad up more than 2 players in jet matches, etcc ugh

    We managed to get Toe into Rb yesterday and were a merry bunch.. Having fun.. Mostly.. Low tiers..

    We had a few laughs, among them when Toe ripped his wings on a TBF (I warned you!), me throttling down too much, arcade style, writing off my Havoc Mk. I 10feet of the runway (Toe´s fault). Not a bad day! But we had some lemons as well, when the highest tiered aircraft was a TBF we suddenly got pushed into Fw 190 A4 territory. I was flying an SBD and Shortbus & Kaygen a P-36C HawK - great matchmaking Gayjin! Didn´t help that in those kind of games we also had people leaving, crashing, ground derping in their fighters...

    But on the whole we had pretty much fun (I think)! Toe even managed to steal a bunch of kills from me..

    Don´t think Toe will be totally gone...

    But yeah, Arcade is getting worse for me - so many dickheads out there flying..

    And to really cheer us up we also had the great pleasure to see the brilliant match-making in action as Germans.. Taking out our He-51s we had two LaGG-3s, one MiG-3, one Yak-1 and a couple of I-15s descend from outer space on us.

    And did I mention I sacrificed myself and my plane to save Toe? Out of ammo, rammed my A5M4 into a Yak-1 to save Toe - where´s the thank you??

    Also noticed you can scare I-153 to rip their wings (funny!)and AAA is still nasty... (Don´t ask x3)

    As I pointed out at the time, the bad guy was heading due south of me. You deciding to ram him was not needed or asked for.

    What you should be pointing out is that in that very same battle, after rearming at the airfield, I had to race hell for leather to save one of the good guys. If a certain Svenska had not needlessly rammed into that other bad guy, he would have been nearer to help the good guy. However, as it turned out I flamed the bad guy on the first pass and down he went, with the good guy singing my praises and thanking me for a job jolly well done.

    Three cheers for Toe ... hip, hip hooray (x3)

    PS: It would seem your capacity to bullshit increases exponentially. God help us if you ever fly simulated!!!!

    I actually not just saved the world by that heroic ram - but probably the universe including all anti-materia so a little "-Thank you mr. Dave Schilling!" is too much??
