Yup, if I knew this was how the game was going to end up, I wouldn't have bothered buying the expensive coin bundles to upgrade the now near useless WW2 planes, so any chance of separating the planes please Zup !!!!

Do you taste bad?

Hiya Haydencal, hmm buy me dinner first, then you can find out... Lmfao

Not particularly a great thing to say to a thirteen year old boy.

Unfortunately its not just elite is a poor imitation of df 1 its the credit card mentality of paying for planes upgrades ect ect. I managed to make moraf in df1 and I know many others did by putting many hours in. Trying to compete with bubba now that was a challenge especially in a lvl 2 plane. Point is game is dead because elite is inferior compared to original. We stopped playing just as elite came out, I've popped in recently and most games are empty or it puts me in a game which is about to end. Lol!! All good fun..

same issue here wumper im gettting bullet drop at point blank range to a point i get more deaths from crashing than any one shooting me doon (scottish down there)

Sir Wumper wrote: Another issue concerns me big time.

I have reported previously, but either my eye sight is gone, or the game is really not working correctly.

I approach a plane, head on. I shoot 100+ shots and nothing registered. No kill. Enemy fires at me and I am destroyed.
Take off and do the exact thing, and I’m destroyed.

I played Strachan, and he remarked that he was surprised that my bullets never seemed to register. This is happening a lot.

I fire at a plane, or just above, and even higher. Nothing registers.

I’ve been playing for over 5 years. In DFI, I destroyed a lot of planes. But not in Elite. There is something really different between the games.
Talking to Zup doesn’t seem to do any good..

Happened again, three WW1 planes fighting 3 WW2 and one ww1 planes, we could not get to their airdrome due to the jets superior speed. We would shoot them down near our end and they come back at us in no time, well before we can get halfway to their end. This is ridiculous and, get this, some of them were dropping some of their bombs to be faster, like double our speed is not fast enough. Please REFUSE TO USE WW2 PLANES!!!

Its been over a month, I repeatedly find myself facing ww2 planes going 400 kph compared to my 200 kph. They out turn, so turn fighting is out. You shoot them down and they are back in it twice as fast. I joined a year ago and found I loved playing DFE. I can put up with upgrades, with bugs, but the fact is it has been turned into a ww2 game. I do not love the planes or the pace of the ww2 game. So Zup, why not pull the ww1 planes and call it what it is? Putting a MORAF in a Spit or a jet and I am in a biplane is stupid. Great game, bad format. Looking for a WW1 flying game if anyone knows of one that is a great as this one was...

Heres what I think after experiencing this problem myself, and after flying on the level 1-17 server

In the lower level server, the game is played how it’s meant to be played, its a lot like good old dogfight 1. Games go longer, fights are more enjoyable, and killing is abundant. Now I understand that combining that with what we have now creates the problem of unfair fights for newer players, so here's my solution.

Four servers/games going on at once.

-Level 1-17 WWI

-Level 17+ WWI

-All levels WWI

-Level 17+ WWII


The WWI combined server means you have a 50/50 chance when joining to get a game at your skill level vs above or below. That seems fair. WWII is separate, we get to enjoy WWI combat the way we know and love, noobs dont get constantly blasted into oblivion, and everyone has 2-3 options for games at any given time. Its a win win.

My bad Doonsi; I’m so sorry. I will try to twich to the WW1 planes when I see u. I was opposed and still am to the mix battels but got tired of posting on it. The thing is that I believe the players that wrote to mix the games up because of the empty WW2, hardly play no more.

Dondst no hay este es el mejor ,con mucha fitetenvis y más real que jugué ,al unir los aviones de ambas guerras el Jet tiene que ser si o si más rápido ,sinó no iría consecuente con su velocidad .Pero si deberías poder elegir guerras como estaba antes.El problema es que pocos pilotos tienen aviones war2 ,o son muy limitados los que tienen,yo sigo pensando que las balas apenas se ven,tampoco sabes cuando te disparan,y la mira sobre todo también pondría opciones para que todos las usen.Joaquín esta trabajando en ello
Yo amaba DF1 y espero amar a este también.En cuanto a lo de moraf es cierto amigo muchos trabajamos para conseguirlo,todos los moraf deberíamos portar en el juego una condecoración que todo el mundo pudiese ver,aunque no seamos todavía nivel 47.
Todos los que están ahora primeros ,se engancharon al élite 3 meses antes,por eso están los primeros,yo colo otros muchos hasta que el viejo juego no acabó ,siempre jugaba allí.Muchos de esos pilotos no estaban no entre los 10 primeros. Pero cuando Joaquín lanzó el élite se pasaron allí y esos 3 o 4 meses de ventaja ,les sirvieron para cojerle el toque a la bala caída y situarse donde ahora están. SIn desmerecer que son buenos pilotos pero otros muchos no tanto.Un saludo

My dear Acegirl: this is not your, Dusty, or anyone else flying spits and jets fault. It's a fundamental flaw in the premise of the game. Zup has built an online with excellent performance and superb capabilities. I was awed by the variety of plane platforms and love switching between the different models. Once you throw in the top tier planes, you can barely keep up in a ww1 plane. I have hoped zup would find a way to segregate the battles to allow those who love the ww1 planes to fly. One idea was to increase the points you gain as you fly lower level planes. Once the level of players was split, a notion I do not oppose, my point totals gained nose dived as there were no more noob massacres. It will take level 18 players a very long time to earn top tier planes to be competitive. We must either remove ww2 planes from the ww1 arena or offer a significant incentive to fly ww1 planes to upper tier fliers.

Maybe doing away with squad wars points would help matters. I suspect the morafs flying the jets and spits constantly are doing so to accumulate points. A challenging game must surely be more fun, but by flying a ww1 aircraft wouldn't be as profitable from a point perspective. Dunno, but I really think the squad wars format has changed the way some folks approach this game.

Doonsbury, I totally agree with you. Time warp thing = silly.
