an important point IMHO to make something like an "online war". an event that is taking place for some months with an updated playerstatistic - like http://www.vowreloaded.de/
one has only to keep in his minds that the basic "statistic" programms or the servertool of the second are 3. party developmnets !!
one thing - ADW is made by us (GT=Neoqb) but during that time we was an 3rd party team and we had not to make a whole game for it.
One thing - ADW came out almost 4 years (four) after IL2 release, right now - ROF is only 1 year old, and we are still wroking hard to evolve ROF.
PS: when IL2 got first two seater for germans?
