16v16 is too much for air rb

Just gonna quote my post on this here as to why I think it’s a good idea:

  • more opportunity for skill ceiling growth
  • more targets to shoot at and kill
  • more mistakes to make and learn from
  • more chances to make friends
  • more experiences to pack into one match

There ya go


We need larger maps so BVR tactics can be employed. We have missiles in the game now that have ranges longer than the maps we have. We also need more maps where terrain masking can be used.


“History and realism are different subjects entirely”…

-Maybe it’s your translator but this is pretty goofy.

The current state of Air RB at top tier is aweful - Most players agree with that - as shown by this thread and replies to your comments.

Im not saying it’s wrong for you to like the current meta.

Im just saying, it’s severely limiting the game and this game would be FAR better served by splitting the Air RB gamemode at tiers 6 through 8. Smaller technical matches for die-hard fighters and larger matches with respawns for more drawn out, strategic gameplay.

^This way, everyone could get something they enjoy - including you.


The forums are not the majority.

  • insert “Actually Meme”…

On the last forum and on reddit a few of us have conducted poles that garnered over a thousand votes and those that voted were about 90% - 98% in favor of splitting the mode in a similar way to what i described.

Nobody will ever be able to understand every single players desires but 1000+ votes showing over 90% in favor of something is pretty revealing.


A poll to split air rb? Can i still vote?

Do you really think that not having BVR is realistic?

War Thunder has BVR, and having BVR is realistic.
And players can choose to not do BVR, because it’s up to the players how they play; Just as it’s up to pilots & militarizes how to respond IRL.
& radar missile much like real life, forced pilots low.
Which is why terrain following is also an important part of War Thunder.
War games aren’t just one style of combat, it’s multi-faceted, and the pilots that know how to deal with more situations are better off.

Now that you’ve clarified that you think not having BVR is realistic, the most sane thing to do will be to ignore all of your opinions


The old ones are likely dead. I just created a new poll.


You literally replied “Yes” to my question and now you’ve edited it out. LoL


And my meaning remains the same.
I forgot to be specific in my answer, my bad.
Now you have the specific answer.

You did a 180° turn with that edit buddy


I apologize that my initial post was not as understandable as it is now.

by what metric?


I’ll quote what I said in another topic


Congrats. You went to the center of the bee hive and asked the hive mind what it thinks and got one answer. Good job.

Getting a lot more than one answer buddy…

Based off your own stats you got one answer. The hive mind doesn’t like 16v16.
