    This is hilarious.

    Perhaps they'll do this in the US if they don't like what they get on Tuesday?

    It is not hilarious to make a new vote, it was hilarious to vote ETO West on the last poll even though we already had two of them and lack in both planes and maps to produce a Luftwaffe scenario that is on par with the high standards of the previous events.

    the_vicar has a point.
    I did not vote ETO last time, but if thats what most people want I don't think
    we should declare that we know better and tell them they can't have it for this
    reason or that.

    Do "most people" care for the work involved? Do "most people" research a scenario to the extent we need it? Do "most people" magically enlarge and rework maps so we can actually get the scenery we need?

    I could easily go on here, but I think you go my drift.

    At the end of the day it is up to me to get all this sorted and therefor I only expect some thought before people vote. If I can't see that in the results I feel disappointed.

    IHMO voting for the theather and period is far too broad subject, very few guys can instantly run through the scenarios that can be done within the given parameters.

    More appropriately we come up with a list of specific scenarions that can be subjected to a vote or a series of votes.

    By listing the setup (ie Fw jabos bombing on the eastern front), the time (ie summer 1944), a map suggestion (Finnish Gulf online) and the history (I/SG5 bombing lavansaari airbase from Utti during their short stay on their way from lapland to the baltic states), everyone would know what to expect.

    Generic vote on ETO could mean anything from the battle of france to final battles over the southern germany and berlin.

    Algore has a point.

    I vote for a new poll with clear scenario ideas. That way people won't allways choose ETO - West and we can put desriptions of each scenarion in the first post. Maybe adding 'read scenario description before voting' would be a good idea, as have an option to vote from the homepage.

    Ok, this vote is clearly going to be inconclusive, so please submit possible scenarios and I'll make a new poll for it.

    Information needed to qualify for inclusion in the vote:

    1. Scenario description
    2. Units/Squadrons involved
    3. Planes involved
    4. Maps that can be used
    5. Specific targets

    OK, I like to get this next mission together before the end of November. The idea by Algore does have a lot of potential and I think we'll go with that.

    So, do we want a sweep of 16 F-8s against Yak-9s and La5s or should we assign the Jabos some escort?

    I would like to get the decision on this done asap, so the skin artists can get to work. I know whom to ask for the Fw190s and the russian stuff should be too difficult either. Going to ask the usual subjects, like Mangas and Co.

    Does anyone else want to contribute an opinion on this or not?

    Guess not...


    Anyway, I could get the Skinner who is responsible for the superb new default skins for the MOD Fw190s to make the Luftwaffe skins for the upcoming mission.

    So are you not going to go with the poll outcome? Even though I voted for ETO, PTO doesn't sound so bad either...

    7 vs 7 vs 9 is no clear result for me. Plus, no one here seems to care ever so slightly what is going to happen. Or at least that is the general vibe I get. Correct me if it is wrong, but as long as that doesn't change I'll go with the only decent suggested scenario idea, which was given by Algore.

    As soon as I feel that people actually want to contribute something more valuable than a click in a poll, I might reconsider my attitude for future events.
