Believe me the reason pointed by Ripsukoni is totally right, during the betatests of this map the bombers were placed out of the fighters ways and the guys simply ignored them

It's also a pretty bad problem on Coral Sea as well. Every time I try and use the Devastator, I crash into the freaking Dauntless that pops into existance in front of me!

Yea that does suck, really hate it when your trying to take off from a carrier, and a guy brings the aircraft elevator down, and you end up falling in with your plane.

L├╝tzowAnd I usually kill the pilot who does this (I usually play as gunner in this map) because you are supposed to BOMB the FACTORIES

There was this idea waay back when.... twas call escourting the bombers! See the idea was to send bombers and fighters up at the same time... and then... the FIGHTERS would deal with the OTHER enemy fighters.

Twas a brilliant concept at the time when they invented it during the First World War.... And they kept on using the idea from then on, even to create planes just to act as escourts.

But I digress, how dare that limey bastard try and shoot down those enemy fighters trying to kill you! How dare they strife the enemy AA positions near the factors. The shear gall of those people! Ban them all I say! That's what you would like isn't it Lutzow?

If my plane spawns on deck behind the elevator I try to taxi for takeoff as if the elevator isn't there, there's a space of deck wide enough to ignore the elevator... unless some tard brings a plane up into your taxi run from below. A good elevator operator is worth his weight in gold.

BF and FH's insistence to put plane spawns in the way (hangars/runways) has always baffled me. And BtR map is always so hard because the axis get twice as many fighters as the allies BY DESIGN, the bombers suck, the AA 20mm fires way too high, the tailguns suck, escorting is impossible, no fighters escort, bombers don't fly smart (circle for alt, high), and the runway layouts are not stellar. Fix bombing/bombers, limit the axis fighter rate, give a resupply runway and you have an ok map and people won't avoid lancasters like the plauge.

Did I cover everything?

L├╝tzowAnd I usually kill the pilot who does this (I usually play as gunner in this map) because you are supposed to BOMB the FACTORIES, not just try to get as many as possible points with your Hurricane. (I'm not saying you QbanRev would be that kind of pilot, im just generalizing) Ofcourse some escorts would be nice, but they don't have time for that...

I've had a lot of spectacular fighter escorts, and really strongly appreciate people who jump in Hurricanes and try to give me some cover. I really don't care if they're doing it to score whore--if they're shooting down baseraping German fighters while I'm trying to get a bomber up, they're okay in my book.

well, even pre 0.7 i have seen axis win this map very seldom, but since 0.7 with the removal of the heavily armed FW-190 anti-bomber fighters i havent seen the axis win a single game...

It still doesnt justify driving the bombers out on the grass...
