View Full Version : Now I know exactly how much concentration it takes to play IL2!

Well, after having a constant 101-104 degree fever for 3 days now (Farenheit, not celsius) I can perfectly understand how much concentration playing IL2 needs. It's hard to fly, especially online, when you also have to worry about your eyes getting too close to the screen and giving you a worse headache, keeping hydrated, and taking the necessary medicine.

It's now very clear that IL2 is the most immersive sim I've ever flown. But, in order to get the immersion, you need to pay full attention.

You're absolutely correct.

I used to be able to sim CFS 1 and 2 with a healthy beer buzz and actually do better at knocking down the enemy.

With any IL-2 game it takes only 2-3 beers to knock my edge off to the point I fly relentlessly stupid and get really frustrated at how fast and often I die. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Cannabis can be chalked up for "confusing" your senses. Not that I've tried it. I never inhale.

It`s funny, but I find if I exercise BEFORE I fly online I do far better than usual. I feel more alert, seem to be more accurate, etc. It certainly doesn`t hurt your skills!

Hmm yes,
Mixing beer and cannabis is fun when flying. It is a bit irritating though when I keep getting shot down by "unintoxicated" pilots. Maybe we could have a drug users only server?

All this talk about drugs is very shameful. We have kids on these message boards, and what kind of example are we setting for them? We should be ashamed of ourselves. Tsk tsk. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif
