whatcha < !s>Just wondered what the deal is with FB and the online servers. I used to play IL2 when it first came out but stopped since I had a dial up and a naff pc that would not do the game justice. Anyway now armed with ADSL and a shinny new pc I thought I would get back into it....then reading all the stuff on FB (and since I could see no one playing IL2) I thought I would buy FB.

So far its great, love the detail and the sound improvements and some of the new aircraft.

(getting to the point) does ASE still support FB fully? At the moment its only picking up ten or so servers worldwide, Near the end of my IL2 days I can remember seeing some postings on the forum about servers blocking ASE players and giving more priority to Hyperlobby players. Is this still the case? Or is it just the fact that there are next to no servers out there just now (I saw the postings about dedicated servers).

Do I need to go via ubi? have I got next to no chance of getting some action without Hyperlobby?.

*its not that I cant stand hyperlobby... its just that I use ASE for Raven shield and Ghost Recon.

Thanks for any info on this.

Any UK/ Central Euro IP# would be cool too =)

Sad for me to say this but don't go to ubi, you won't be able to host through a router, if you don't host then go through ubi if you wish, there is also HL, most of the hardcore regulars at UBI either switched to HL or just downright quit when UBI started to not let people host through the router... this 1.11 patch didn't help a few out much either. Well me anyways.

Regardless theres the info, do what you feel.

Gotcha. If i were you i`d go to HL tho, 200 ppl guaranteed even on slow day. But seen as high as 800`s on it over the weekend. @UBI you`ll find 60 gove or take. Donno, it might change with dedicated server.
