I guess I'd like to see Barrage balloons for all 3 sides in the center. Help bring the furball into the center away from the fields.

Give you something to waste a few rounds on, etc.


I would love to see barrage balloons over fields, and maybe the center could use a little more eye candy. But all in all, I think its a perfect arena for a furball. I havent laughed or had this much fun in a long time.

Please add a few more planes, but dont change a thing. Its a great stress releaver. If you dont like to furball don't but I think the WW I Arena is gonna be around awhile. ;)
It also beats the DA anyday.
Forgot who said this while trying to take a base, but the quote goes like this. "I cant help you with ack, Im not in attack mode" This is with only 2 ack up in the town while troops were there, waiting. The rest of the town was down.

I would like to see at least one of the three arenas be a historical match up arena with the planes on the correct sides.

Zeppelins would be a good start for targets, and also would make good gunnery platforms for those who don't want to fly but want to shoot. Think "aerial PT Boats". 

A trench system with strafable gun positions would make for good ground fighting, too.

For those who don't remember Hitech created Dawn of Aces...the WWI version of Warbirds. We started out with a small plane set and pretty much the same simple gameplay we have now. Eventually more planes were added..artillery,  Zeppelins
for spotting  and ranging artillery etc.

I think we'll  find that things will develop here in a similar fashion.

how many perks would one get for all that strafing once the flag war has been won?

and what would they spend it on  :D

I'm guessing those would be tied into your MA perks just like the other arenas, just use them in the LW or MA i guess   :headscratch:    or spend them on wine, women and song at the local pub  :cheers:

I propose a simple "capture the flag" system in the ww1 arena.


Located away from the airfield is a destructable object with a flag. The object can be destroyed after so many strafing hits. Once it is destroyed the flag changes to the country that killed the object. There would be many of these spread around the map.

Capturing over 50% (?? 70% or mabey even 100%) of all the flags will win the war and all the flags will reset. I think the flags could reset without the whole arena resetting and disconnecting everyone.

This would promote a more spread out fight, or it could turn into a heated defense/offense for a country to keep their flags. It would require a little strategic thinking to win all the flags.

I guess sort of the same thing as killing the town and dropping troops but without the troops.

Zeppelins was my first thought, also. 

Make these like task groups with Agent 360's capture the flag/destructible object proposal, and it might work.

I hope they leave at least one WW1 arena just the way it is now.

Some people just want to fight air to air.

capture the flag?  in a ww1 arena?  Lets just play the thing for a few months before we start dreaming up all sorts of crazy ideas to dilute it down to nothing but a cheap arcade style  game......

A couple of WWI tanks and a couple of WWI bombers would give the bomber pilots and GVer's something to do and there are some viable options but more fighters are needed first.
I edit a lot of my posts.  Get used to it.

As predicted, the fun suckers showed up in 2.5 seconds. 

HTC, whatever you do, please leave one WW1 arena for the furballers; Maybe a WW1 DA for us simpletons.  Do whatever you want with the rest.
