No, ENY wasn't introduced until we were well into AH2.

The switch to AH2 happened in tour 53, the ENY limiter was introduced with the beginning of tour 55

A horde of early war aircraft will still take a field easily when defended by 4 people in late war vehicles and ac.

ENY not high enough today. about 20 Bish VS 3 Knits... This is the otherside of the coin.

Thatís a mirror image of most nights for Knights. Right around midnight Bish #ís drop and ENY is 15-30.

It really hampers players that just want to furball or GV without regard to the war. It obviously hasnít tip the scales of HTCís ROI yet. Old issue along with maps from AH1Ö

Well I've been subscribed since 08', and I'm still sketchy on eny. Is it calculated for only in flight planes or those sitting in the O'club having a cocktail?

ENY is calculated using all players on a country, not by using only those in flight.

If your country has double the amount of players online vs another country youíre going to have some ENY or very high ENY, depending on country(s) total.

E.g. Knights had 28 players to Bishops 12 last night and ENY was nearly 30.

Couldn't the ENY numbers be simply adjusted to reflect the decimated population? It would be logical that you'd need way more penalty given the increased sedentary nature of the remaining population.

You got this!  :aok :rock
Back in 2022 after a loooooong break from 2010. Old name Ratpack, same for the BBS.

Squad I did the most tours with were the Excaliburs then The 172nd Rabid Dogs. Still trying to talk Illigaf, Coola, Oldman22, and Joecrow into coming back instead of being boring old farts!
