I think someone needs to go outside and smell the grass. Lots of post about the same things.

Just the first item.... it looks like you were against the horde and they had eny. Then they logged and your side was the hord and you had eny. If so, that is how it works. It all works out in the wash.

I believe what he's saying is that when the horde squad is on, their ENY only goes between 5-10. But when they all log off Mervs ENY goes to 20+. So imagine switching to the knits to help defend against the horde squad, then the map changes, or they all log off, now you are stuck there with a 20 eny. Nothing you can do.


Why the heck in a Seafire 15 eny and a better eny than a 109k or Ki84 or yak3? It just doesn't make sense. I'm sorry guys, but these eny values just aren't accurate.

I am curious.... if you manually switch to even sides, and then the other side has a lot that log, if you select auto switch.... will it move you to the lower number side?

I know that eny works the same for all sides.

Then what's the point of the 6 hour side switch? If it's "spying" to switch sides, than why is being able to switch to the low # team any different?

One solution is to perk the difference between the countries ENY and the Aircrafts ENY.
Example the Knits have a ENY of 20, the P51 has a ENY of 5, make the P51 cost 15 perks.
The problem with that is so many players have thousands of perks that it wouldnít really make a difference.
Iím personally not the biggest fan of ENY, and it hardly ever affects me, unless itís over 25.

Using perks is not a good idea as then it only affects the newer folks who really need the best planes. They would get demolished.

Keep the ideas coming though.... that is what is needed. Much better than the constant complaining... as that gets the point no where. Somewhere, someone, will come up with an idea that will knock the socks off the problem that folks are having.

While the letter is one thing..... the best thing about this thread is the request for any suggestions. Even if you have not completely ironed out how to go about it..... throw it out there for discussion.

How do we keep the older vet folks out of the best planes is the real question  :old:

Truth be told, more people in less best planes is better for the newer folks than newer folks getting demolished by vets flying the best planes too. Perked planes show to lead to less overall usage which I think is good for the newer folks. Just my opinion and okay to disagree as we wouldn't see it in practice anyway.

I would be OK with that.

But what I would love to see is "Rollin Plane Sets".... but the arrival of the next plane/tank would be based on Factory down times... the side that takes care of its strategic resources gets the newer planes first. (As things are right now, you may as well call this "Aceshigh 1945")

As far as side balancing.... don't mess with the planes/tanks....  the larger your population, the larger the number of troops you need to get into the base to capture it and shorten the window of time that you have to accomplish it in. And the reverse is true for the team that is outnumbered.

I like this idea very much it would be easy to scale with an agreed acceptable equation. 10 troops being the minimum.

I also agree with the 190 should be perkier. Itís one of my favorites to fly anyway especially for porking. Itís also my first click anytime the eny starts creeping.
