Default Situation of WWII multiplayer servers

Hey guys,


I come back to DCS after a longer break. Now Iam very intressting in buying my first WW2 module. Of course iam more intressting in flying online (dogfights).
The last days I checked how many servers are up for WW2 only. Sadly I didnt saw one. So my question is, how is the overall situation of WW2 servers?? I just wonder to my self if its worth to buy a WW2 module, if no active servers are up?


Are there still servers out there, where people doing WW2dogfight daily?


Thx for answers
Rocko

Hi Rocko,

Welcome back! I haven't been on DCS for a while but I used to go on the Burning Skies server although I believe this disappeared and you had to connect via IP... Might be worth checking their Discord out...

Enjoy!!

Are you on stable version or open beta? Most servers of any kind are running open beta now.

S!

First, install the beta branch of DCS and then look for the server Burning Skies. It is populated enough to have some dogfight there during European evenings however, the mission is very simple.

I hope that the new damage model and clouds achieve to revitalise WWII DCS as the planes are a joy to fly.

Storm of war had a multiplayer server for a while, but we pulled it offline due to:
1. Low player numbers
2. Lack of an overall chohesive WW2 environment



We're keeping an eye on the DCS ww2 development to see if it worthwhile putting a server up again .. but I can' see it happening before 2019 is over with.

open beta and burning skies seems to be the most popular. 30+plus on weekends and nearly as much most Euro evenings.

Thx all for the posts. Burning skies runs on Normandy map? Unfortunaly I get Runtime Errors or CTD when I try to join a Beta Server.



edit: solved the CTD issue by deleting my C:\DCS Games folder

No, at the moment there are two different missions on burning skies, both on caucasus.

There's a blue flag normandy server, but it is not as popular as burning skies.
