Why is it that nobody does use the online campaign mode? It's like a coop game,people can pick their plane and side,and fight a real online war. Think of it,this is cool,you can see who's the best,keeping track of your progress.
Seems to me that most people think that this is only possible with the Battle over europe expansion,but this isn't true!

With aces you can choose the following campaigns: Lvov'41,Moscow'41,Smolensk'41,Crimea'42

Please people,i'm looking for some serious flying.
Reading briefings,following waypoints,formation flying,tactics,fighting,making an online career

Let's give it a shot,i'm sure it's rewarding!

I'll try on Hypperlobby to set something up.
my callsign is twister1401!

So drop by,and see for yourself!

happy hunting.

I was thinking about this today. How do you go about getting hooked up to do this? Where are you looking to see nobody in there? On HL somewhere. Kinda getting tired of DF servers and like to try this online campaign thing too.

no dedicated serves is why. i bet the # of online players will 2x once the DS comes out. At Greater Green we try to run campaigns, but in DF mode.

but, as i said, no DS so no Greater Green.

I regularly host BOE dynamic campaign missions on HL. I have four different campaigns that we are currently flying.
1)8x8 medium settings Normandy
2)8x8 FR+speed bar & icons Normandy
3)8x8 medium settings Ardennes
4)8x8 FR=spd bar& icons Ardennes
Look for me on HL hosting and hop on in. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yep saw Eagle hosting the other night but got tired of waiting to get in. You have to wait if your not there when first hosted. I and some other do it al the time but have yet to host them publicly. They can be a bit borring for a spell. But once the action starts its full blown generally. But if your into realizm then taking a long flight before the action is part of the fun.

I am a member of a squad and we play the online campaigns all the time now. We switch back and forth between a Smolensk campaign with IL-2s and two BOE campaigns over Normandy and the Ardennes with P-51s and P-47s.
