statistical information on squadrons. Rank, Kills, and Deaths, just like we have for individual players. Perhaps the number could be the squad average.

I tested this on a squadron with a smaller member count, the 108th Wardogs, to see how it would work out.

Total Kills of all 10 members: 75,937
Total Deaths of all 10 members: 46,838

Squad Kill average: 7,594
Squad Death average: 4,684

Which could then be used to figure out the squadrons K/D ratio.

In this case, it would be 1.62 K/D

Edit: Nobody is saying K/D is the "end all be all". It's information. I, like many others, are curious and interested in the numbers we can get from the limited amount of info we are given. (Kills, Deaths, Hangars, Crashes, Wins, and Rank) The more, the better... One of the reasons I love baseball so much is sabermetrics!

Zuperman......I think if you included more detail on Zepplin kills.....If we could come up with other things to move people from looking at the kill/death ratio as being "end all to be all" of dogfight when ability in dogfight is WAYYYY more than just plane to plane activity it would be appreciated.

Squad wars should be done WAY more than just kill/death ratio, plane to plane activity....How you do points is PERFECT...I LOVE it....

more missions beyond dogfight. bombing missions, capture missions and zepplin.....how about an all tank mission....how about adding anti-aircraft guns?./...or gasoline level to planes so that camping/spawnkillin/etc can be diminished....

It would be awesome to have a private match system where squads could challenge each other in matched combat. Also can it be made where the player can choose what type of match they participate in? Last request: an inclusion of what is arguably the best fighter the war saw; the JN-5 "Jenny". American pride right there. Thanks Zup!

As much as i like the Jenny, correct me if I'm wrong here I'm a little rusty on my aviation facts, but wasn't it used as a trainer since it was a two seater with dual controls? I still think it'd be fun to use it as a fighter but if memory serves me right it was too stable to take on albatrosses and triplanes effectively in combat. Either way it'd be a fun addition to the game. Zup, would it be possible to get an update as to what you're working on so we don't inundate you with requests you might not be able to get to? The anticipation of new features is killing us. I know that the last update i got solved many of the problems i was experiencing so thank you for that, the game is finally playable for me again :)

Someone probably mentioned these things but here goes.
Fix the Spawn crash issue.
Drop tanks and bombs from dogfight mission. Very few carry bomb and tanks generally used for the tank spawn kill.
No need for bomb in ctc games.
Change tank to a proper ww1 era vehicle.

My 2 pennies worth.

Not sure if this has already been said or not - but I would like a "log out" button on the main menu somewhere, some people have more than one pilot under the same roof who have to share the device, this would make it easier to switch between accounts.

Maybe there's an easy way to do it already and I just hadn't found it yet, I know there's people that have more than one account so they must be doing it some how?

Yeah, you're right on the Jenny. I'm studying aeronautical engineering and I messed that up :oops: If my professor saw this I'd be getting such a nasty e-mail... :blink: But it could be a good level two plane, or it could be the started and the airco could be moved to lvl. 2.

#1 On my list is smoothing out the steep hill next to the allies base side, and carrier some. It's a huge tactical advantage for the Germans, a tanks dream. Better landmark to tell where the enemy territory line is for chute timing, allies having to fly up and over then cut back around to attack a tank exposing your six, it's normally leaves less time to take shots before pulling up to avoid the hill, Germans have the high ground to shoot from, and other tactical maneuvers Germans use that I wont share so I don't have to fight against it ;) Though I think most know what I'm talking about.
Though the German side is an open terrain making ally tanks easy pickings by comparison.

Parachute not being so deadly, it's worse then a plane sometimes to fight. As it makes a perfect gun platform, more stable, quicker to aim, and harder to hit then a plane. Perhaps slower to turn, less ammo, slower fire rate, easier to hit... or some combo of some of theses. I don't want it to be to easy to shoot down, but far less dangerous.

Making it so that PC users can buy in game cash as well. This would I hope bring in more money for you.

Key, and button re-mapping. The ability to customize your controls partly or fully.

A way to adjust the size of the combat info, and chat on the right screens side. Also a way to adjust the max length any text line can cover of your screen before becoming a second line.

Thanks for all your work Zuperman!

I'm all for cleaning up the glitches first. When possible I'd like to see:
Zeppelin game for both sides.
A compass in the cockpit and/or an airplane or arrow shape in place of the white block on the map indicating the direction being flown.
I'd like to see more of a target when shooting at another plane instead of a symbol and name. When close enough the tiny speck below the name can only be seen against a light background such as a cloud. If not maybe some way to tell the distance from target to help with adding elevation or deflection.
An attitude indicator would be nice.

This is a super game and everyone I've teamed with our played against are really great people. Thank You. :)

Addition: I like the suggestion some one else made and support it. The capability for team chat in game free from opponents view. It would allow strategy, warning another teammate of being jumped, as well as determine whose going to bomb and whose going to AIRCVR, air support. Thanks.

we already have altimeter.

And themap also shows the direction in which we are flying...


Hey rednose...

Lets assume that almost 100 people lend money...

But... All of them will have to lend $1250 since , echoboom requires 125k for the game...

I dont think , anyone is that rich , that they will just give away $1250

Lets assume that, 1000 people lend..

Everyone will still have to pay $125

$125 isnt that much...

So i guess it may be possible...

Only if atleast 1000 people lend money..

:)

I'd like to suggest rearranging the planes as they appeared historically/ performance-wise as well as putting in some new ones. I reckon this would put a bit more variety to plane choices as well gameplay.

German side:

Fokker Eindecker: Lvl 1
Albatross DIII: Lvl 2
Fokker D1 (Red Baron): lVL 3
Albatross DV: Lvl 4
Fokker DVII: Lvl 5


Allied side:

DH2: Lvl 1
Nieuport 17: Lvl 2
Spad XIII: Lvl 3
SE5A: Lvl 4
Sopwith Camel: Lvl 5


Just my two cents.

Thanks,
Just that the investing with no financial return didnt work.
So, what's the alternative?
We say we love this game so much, and play it for hours and hours!
'Elite' promisses to be the best thing out there on tablet.
If we play a couple of hours less, and get an extra paper-round, or so,....what's the problem with that?

At least we can say, we made it possible!

And imagine even getting your money back afterwards.

How about addimg room names to the top of the pilots List with there Kills and Fallen. Some thing like this. It would help to know what map you were in if you lose connection or wanting to switch sides!

Heared that there was not enough funding for it....

Googled it today anyway, and seen ALL I would like you to do for the next Dogfight.

So what about a link in the start menu to the previews, and have another go at it?

Funding might be difficult for most, but what about a possibility to lend money to devellop?


This is the first I'm hearing about df elite, what is it?

Hi HD,

On Vimeo, and Youtube you'll find previews of it....

Didn't know it before and threw one idea after another at this thread... But Echoboom already had covered it in 'Elite'.
I think it covers most we could want....

Love this game, but the graphics and the historicy could do with a little work.
Now it's a great game,......it can be THE flight simulator fot tablet out there!

Something that would greatly change the game dynamics:

In-game chat for the different sides.

Having chat which is only visible to the blues, the teams could communicate strategy. Could there be a button next to the chat window which you could hit where your text would appear in blue and indicate that only your teammates could see it?

How about you put our points to next rank up on the multiplayer page. where all our stats are. that way I don't have to jump into a game to check my points. I do this all the time. Just to check my points .I don't want to play a game. I just want to check my points. And I know all of us do this. This would stop people from jumping in the game and then leaving. I see it happen all the time. :)

Zup, i noticed last night that the droid glitches and bugs you fixed in 4.4.43 are back. I just reinstalled and tested it again and they showed up again. LG MS 770. Everything was fine till about a week after 4.4.44 was released. The most noticeable ones are the sound bug, loss of control at random of chute controls i.e. cant move the joystick and fire at the same time, that one happens randomly, and the same thing sometimes happens in the tank. I updated with wifi, reinstalled on the mobile network, not sure if there's anything else i can do.

just an update.. i'm reading this and already working on a major upgrade but it's taking some time. Probably it will be released in two steps and I calculate 1 to 2 months total to get the full major release out.

Perdón por escribir en español, pero no se me hace posible escribir el inglés en detalle. Aquí mis sugerencias :

El nivel del piloto debería de ser medido por su tasa de derribos/muertes, o al menos que exista un porcentaje que indique que tan efectivo es en relación a eso.

Guerras entre escuadrones, alianzas, territorios conquistados o incluso torneos.

Se debería de tomar en cuenta la tasa de ascenso en un avión, además de que considero erróneo que cuando disminuyes tu velocidad disminuye tu capacidad de giro. Esto, según yo, no debe de ser así. Pues existen numerosas tácticas de combate aéreo donde el manejo de la velocidad es clave importante para lograr ponerte a las 6 del enemigo. Uno simplemente no puede usar en contra del enemigo su velocidad, esa táctica no funciona aquí.en el juego, mayor velocidad = mejor tasa de giro, ésto es erróneo.

Sinceramente, yo me atrevería a quitar los triángulos rojos que te indican la posición del enemigo, pero creo que a muchos no les gustaría ése nivel de realismo.

Y por último, posibilidad de vender los aviones viejos a jugadores primerizos, así como una mejor clasificación entre los niveles de los jugadores, pues muchas veces eso los hace desistir de seguir jugando, al ver que su nivel no se compara con el de un avión avanzado y que ya no tiene casó seguir luchando.

Saludos !!
