The monthly fee and the sheer hugeness of the war cuts down alot of teen/fraghunter players. The sorties feel great to fly as you know there's no AI in the world, every single soldier/tank/aircraft/AAgun/ATgun/ship/etc. you see on your sortie is another human player. It really adds to the immersion to know that the fight below you in a strategically important city is fought human player vs. human player and it is up to you and your squadron to keep the airspace clear of enemy fighters and bombers. The flightmodel is very much different of IL2, but it isnt a bad thing, it isnt very forgiving either.

You can play it for 14 days free, I'd suggest to try it at first.

whats the monthly fee ?

I'll step in and answer that. WWIIOL is brilliant. Teamwork is a must or you won't get very far. The best part is that the game has Land, air and sea.

Here are a couple of screenies:

Me providing air cover for some Kriegsmarine convoy. They set up offshore and shelled a town while the German Army attacked it.

Me taking part in a huge Stuka raid. The German attack ont e town was faltering, then our Stuka raid came and took out many allied tanks.

Gotta love the Stuka...

and last but not least, here is a youtube video that shows a bit of the airwar.

Some things to note:
-the graphics of the terrain have been updated a bit
-this shows part of the strategic airwar (flying deep behind enemy lines and bombing factories
-notice the teamspeak comms the guys use...lots of teamwork. The Axis will have interceptors working together as well.

And there are tons of other great WWIIOL videos on Youtube. I always post the videos to people wanting info. They do a better job than I would showing how great the game is.

True that, but what the videos dont show is how messed up the balance between the allies & axis airforce is. That's just ridiculous, Brits have 2 variants of Hurricanes they can fly at lvl1, the french have the Hawk, but what the Jerries have? A farcking 110!? Now try to reach the total of 400 points to get to rank 3 and 109, when, if you somehow accidentally manage to shoot EA down, you will most likely be shotdown before you reach the base. BANG, 3 points. :roll:

Why not have 109 as lvl1 plane, and 110(with bombs) & 190 as lvl3.

Tho, the teamwork is better on the axis side. Just 15min or so ago, I was playing as infantry, defending the coalstal town of Wilhemdam or something like that. The RAF & FaF were constantly keeping our noses on the mud with their strafin runs as the enemy tanks, infantry and ships slowly encircled us. Despite the big bombing raids from RAF, we managed to hold on and then the LW reorganised and launched a formation of 20-25 109s & 110s all flying in a one huge formation, 3-4k high and all hell broke loose when they jumped down onto the RAF & FAF. :)

A large Luftwaffe raid forming at Veirviers airfield. Stukas, 109s and Heinkels, all tasked to blow the city of Tienen and it's defenders to atoms. :up:

If I find myself in that situation and need to ge home I fly just off the deck and weave a little. It seems the AI doesn't like flying ultra low at all.
