Switch Sides Anytime You Want... for Perks...
« on: April 21, 2014, 09:43:38 AM »
Why not make it to where you can switch sides for free every 12 hours, or anytime you want for say... 25 perks... just pop up a window "Do you want to spend Fighter, Bomber, or Vehicle perks?"  Click button, boom, switched.

Fighting spirit one must have. Even if a man lacks some of the other qualifications, he can often make up for it in fighting spirit. -Robin Olds

I believe it would lead to spying. 25 perks is nothing.

If 25 perks meant nothing to everyone you'd see swarms of dash 4`s and C hogs running about.

A big minus one unless the perk coast is ten times the number of people in the arena.

There is no need for that...spending perks...    It could be fixed without going there.   That said, I am for anything that dumps this counterproductive 12-hour rule, particularly off-peak.

Why would it need to be that high?

The reason we need Sideswitch Reduction in off peak is partly the above.  Way too many unopposed perk farmers in the late hours because guys are all stuck on one side...   No fun.

This is true.  Also, if you ever see me in bombers, I am bored beyond belief but don't want to log off.  Usually I'll do something as dumb as knocking out the radar at as many bases as possible or something along that matter (mostly in B-17s).  That typically happens when I can't find what I consider a "good fight."

Because like many other players these days he's terrified of spiez discovering his super secret missions because then he might actually have to engage in cartoon combat with his cartoon plane in this cartoon dogfighting game.

Nah... I've seen Randy mixing it up in clouds of red.  Unless he's blind and that wasn't on purpose, I think he fights.   :)

I have yet to see anyone spying in this game, I think its hogwash and a excuse when a mission fails.
only a moron would use Dolby positioning in a game.

Just allow switching to the low population side any time, no charge.  Keep 12 hour rule for switching to either of the other two teams.
