Well it should be mentioned that Il2:Forgotten Battles didn't have Corsairs either http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Storm of War will progress much the same way that Il2:Forgotten Battles has.

The sim we call "BoB" will not be the whole scope of the simulation. Battle of Britian is the first installment of SoW, much as Il2:FB started it's own series that included Aces expansion Pack and Pacific Fighters

We call the sim BoB because that's what it was originally referred to way back when. BoB is not the end of the series, it's the beginning. other theatres and locales of the war will be featured, it's rumored that the Med theatre will be the second installment and then who knows

But don't shy away from SoW:BoB because you feel it will concentrate on the Battle of Britian and then that's it; the developer has stated that the SoW series will expand, just as this sim has. This sim started off with Finland, balaton, etc, and grew to incorporate areas of Europe such as Normandy, and then areas of the Pacific. SoW:BoB is just the beginning, it's not the beginning and also the end http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

corsairs were used extensively during the battle of britain, and not so much used in the pacific...

You know, there is a serious lack of marketing going on. There must be more to show than the floor of cockpits at this point. This crowd will probably go out and buy anything that comes out, but as for swaying the general public, you're going to have to get some screenshots and movies out there. Look at MSFSX, they had sceenies out a long time ago and people (not just enthusaists) have been talking abou it forever. SOW:BoB? People don't even know if the game is vaporware or not.

IMO this only raises all expectations for the game. We can only imagine what it looks like and I'm sure most peeps imagination will create something better than any sim could be. It makes for a big let down when it does finally come out. And what ever happened to after E3 the updates will resume? Now, nothing more this year? How can people so brillant get it so wrong???

I feel stupid asking but I missed the huge debate that took place earlier soooo........

will BoB support 6DOF view? I saw that Track IR 6DOF mod for IL2 and have been hooked on the idea ever since.
