I mean the actual COMBAT area, anyway im not being that serious, just a gentle nudge in the ribs, Remember all the hoohaa about having a huge map of north-west europe? wasn't really needed was it.
For the longest time it felt like we had two combat areas:
1) Hawkinge - Lympne
2) Manston - Ramsgate
The combat areas combined seemed less than 65 km x 65 km LOL.....and it was all fought down on the deck!
Things have evolved.
More and more players on both sides are involving themselves in the objectives aspect of the server. With targets spread out on both sides of the Channel (plus ship convoys for both sides within the Channel), vulching is a pale whisper compared to the recent past since it accomplishes little in destroying or defendings thse far flung objectives. With the conversion from RAF fighters of about six more Blenheim pilots, the Red side is far more aggressive -- and effective -- in putting the hurt on the Axis side. To be fair, the Blue side is responding accordingly with growth of its own bomber contingent. Both sides are asking for, and getting, increased fighter cover from the ranks of those who were until recently more preoccupied with low level raids on coastal airfields and/or defending against same. It's fun to monitor the server reports. When a report comes up that "3 Red merchantmen were sunk by 110's flown by XXX, YYY, AND ZZZ", then that's a cue to head mid-channel to cut off the 110's in their dash for home. Etc etc
The targets & objectives are changing. AAA protection of targets & airfields is changing. More TS channels are being used by the different flights. It's getting tough to sign off at times!
