Loki100 and darbycmd:
You guys think that everything is fine, just because you don't personally use
the game as 70% others will. I have played several pvp games and my LW has
been bombed down several times. While I have been playing as Soviets, LW
is usually wiped down dry and clean at -42 spring. Latest game my opponent
had to move LW way beyond front to be safe and some elements even to
Then we had one game with a house rule. It went better. But with a house rule
it took a large part of my intrest out of the game. Every time you have
to use some "house rules", its a mark of unbalance and bad design.
This spam bombing and usage of absolete planes as screen and damagedealer
is just so so... How easy would that to be fix? IT IS EASY. Just penalize
Soviet airfield bombing hard way. They rarely did such raids anyway.
Soviet Air force concentrated on ground support and some specially targeted
Also Soviet player can exploit with those pesky absolete planes.
In real, NO soviet pilot would EVER even try to go near Germans with absolete
ww1 plane. It would have been 100% suicide. In this game however, there are
no such problems. A player can spam 600 such planes and cause havoc to
German side without any real losses. If you loss 600 absolete planes
and manage to kill 80x Me-109F2 its a HUGE victory that will cause major
problems for LW. Soviet side doesn't lose anything. Using those planes
as cannon fodder is a major exploitation. Do we need to call another house rule?
PLEASE fix this.
1) Penalize Soviet airfield bombing runs in 41-43 (up to september -43).
- 30% damage/efficiency penalty, +30% more casualties for Soviets, +30%
more fatique/per run (because soviets feared Germans in that period).
2) Tune down absolete plane offensive value
These simple fixes does not affect to a war, or soviet ability to do its
things. But it takes of the need of use silly house rules with air war.
