Resupplying towns while players are actively trying to take the base is an easy way to defend a base while avoiding combat at the same time. It just seems extra cheesy.

Has anyone ever heard of a base during ww2 that was actually vultched?

Where fighters had impunity to destroy any upping defensive aircraft?

I don't think it happened often it at all...

Runways need hardened if not indestructible ack..maybe manned if auto even more accurate than ack now imo

Vultching should be much harder

Well, they also didn’t have unlimited lives either.

Clark and 4 other airfields in the Philippines the following day. I think most of the P-40's at Clark were destroyed on the ground while some actually got airborne.

Surprise attacks...any other time?

With unlimited lives it should be even tougher than real life imo..

I agree it should be tougher to take bases. Maybe up the amount of tonnage and strafing it takes to bring down a building or object by a third or more. However, I also think the auto anti-aircraft fire should almost be as dangerous to defenders as it is to attackers. It's uncanny how a gunner can differentiate enemy Spit9's from friendly Spit9's. The defender planes need to actually come out to defend a base rather than the base defend them with the "Iron Dome" in place now.

As someone who spends most of their time on jabo I would love if it was harder to pork bases and take out hangers.

I can take out two VH’s or other hangers with one fully loaded P47. Not sure if that is right or not.
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!

Especially considering 1 M4 loaded with 97HE rounds and 60 rockets can single-handedly deack and white flag a town in 5 minutes or so.

I actually disagree. I think it’s just about right. I just think field supplies are creating an imbalance and discouraging combat.

I think the issue here is the problem with the feet dry spawns and not so much the general resupply. I do agree when teams get CVs at feet dry spawns, it is almost impossible to capture is pretty lame.

Most will find that players choose to resup when strats are at 100%. It generally stops once factories are hit

The feet dry thing is straight up trash and should’ve already been fixed. Resup as a whole just needs to be eliminated or severely nerfed.

It also sucks that you can drop supplies 1k out of town and the town is instantly resupplied, yet troops take ages to get to a specific point in the town.  If not making it where you can't resupply with enemies in the dar ring (air or ground), what about a specific drop point for supplies?

Some supplies are essential and should be delivered in any situation.

I'd like to see this 1k distance go away, and force resup's into town. Don't air drops have to be over town?
