For Quant: Let me clear up the impression I gave you about the vehicles. Basic vehicles and planes are available from the word go. But when you reach Sgt rank, you gain access to a wider variety - bombers, and better fighter planes with regard to airforce for instance. While i think of it, be aware that the game is modelled on realism, so a hard turn in a fast plane will black you out if you don't consider the Gs (press tilda and look top left for Gs) or in the worst circumstances, the Gs in a hard pull-up will kill you =) I'm a ground pounder, so my knowledge of squadrons is limited, but what I do know is that i see allied command putting out regular calls for airforce to assemble in a particular place, and converge on a particular target. eg in msg bar appears "Allied HC: Lexfire. Bomber/Fighter Squadron forming at Montfaucon. Target - Consenvoye. Officer in Charge: Flyboy. Tune Channel 60." I suggest going to our squad forum, and send a pm to Grider (best fighter pilot on the allied side) regarding your question. EDIT: Getting off the ground, and landing take some practice lol, so read 'Flying a plane' at the Online Game Manual below. http://training.wwiionline.com/scripts/training/ogm.jsp;jsessionid=E2D285B630B38CDD8699CD9491614BDB For Fox: 1. You can change your name after creation, but it cost $14 or something so i hear. If you've started up your free-trial already and dislike your name, you can get another free-trial acct and hence another name by submitting an application from a different email address. Its worthwhile to give your name a bit of thought I guess, but having said that, theres heaps of bizarre incomprehendible names on the server lol. Rather than tag your name like we do in BF1942, in ww2ol your name, floating above your head, shows up a differnt color to the ppl in your squad. You also have a special squad specific text channel and TS location. Your name can only be 6 letters long i think (no idea why!), so dont worry about tagging yourself. 2. There are many rapid deaths to be had, and no waiting to respawn. Attrition plays an important part in the game, so unlike BF1942 etc, supplies of everything are limited. So, after all the tanks, machine gun infantry or spitfires are used up, everyones a rifleman - and in this game 1 good shot in the chest = death. Its a persistent world, so the map can be quite different if one side succeeds in a major offensive while you're in bed . Heres a link to the current Situation Map http://www.alliedhq.wwiionline.com/blitz.php Also, i think bable and transcul would agree that if our squad seems not to your liking, please dont feel like you're letting us down or anything by not joining. It's a new squad (2 months old?), hence growing at the moment, and thus we're actively recruiting, but as we said earlier those who are in it comprise some of the best in the game. If you like the game, even the squad, and want to invite your friends to join, dont hesitate, bec with our experience, newbs dont stay newbs for long. What's most important to us is that you enjoy the game, and we think It'd be fantastic if TOG could field a team for action in the Aussie timezone, as ww2 is a game dominated by older gamers. In fact, while i think of it, we need a regular 3e Grenadier Squad Leader to direct small actions in the Aussie timezone. At present that role is performed by leaders of other platoons. Perhaps someone from TOG would like to assert themselves in that role? I'd be happy to train them up and follow them to my impending death.
