Started out as usual, alone with a mishap from my wingman (left wing)

Then after a success ful divebomb with multiple targets hit I decided to ignore the message task done and the fact that my gunner yelled out fighters I ofcourse met a unfriendly Lagg

Ahh, the Stuka's good fun in BoS. It also doesn't maintain turns as ridiculously well as the CloD one does at present, which is nice. Gotta love that 1000kg bomb.

this game is pretty, but it's too "gamey" for me with the unlocks and dlc. It also lacks triple monitor support so it won't run on my system except on the main monitor (which is too far away to do any real spotting). If/When they introduce Oculus Rift support, I may have another go at it.

So maybe complete the unlocks before OR support? Wouldn't want to use OR for that. ;) I suppose it would be a serious blast to fly BoS on the Expert servers with OR enabled.

I got panels specially made for cod, and of little use for bos. But unfortunately I am fed up with cod. One day I was just not able to fly it anymore. I know every inch of that map now. So in that perspective BOS is excellent,
I enjoy the campaign, it is a repeating thing. But it is different, and I desperately need different right now ;)

Jaeger, I wish you good fortune in BoS. Drop back in and update us on your perspective (if you're leaving ACG).
take care,

Oh I am not a part of ACG, and I am only at a vacation from cod. I like BOS , but I think it never can replace cod in so many levels. In fact the two sims are so different that it serve no purpose to compare them.
I am more or less finnished with public online flying, campaigns are a treat to fly. Entirely different matter.
