Do you know what the pilots did during the war if their base was being attacked while they were on the ground? Not at thing, because trying to take off would have been suicide. Why should anything else be expected from the players? Just so that you can have a live, defenseless target? Grow up a little. It's not all about you.

If you can't handle being restricted from strafing an airfield, maybe it is you who should suck it up or go somewhere else. You are not the measure of all things, regardless of how you might wish it.

Or you know, you could spawn at the other airfield you have available........

Yes, if you haven't already spawned in. But if you haven't already spawned in, you probably don't know that your airfield is being spawn-spammed.

Once you are already spawned in, you can only switch aircraft and airfields, which is equivalent to suicide, which counts as a death on your record, just because you were unlucky enough to be stuck with a spawn-spammer.

It's really ridiculous. I've played other games where player could spawn-spam. Only the childish just had to do it, even though requested over and over again. On servers with mature players it was never an issue.

And since there was not always an admin around to kick spawn-spammers, some maps had to be rebuilt so that spawn-spamming wasn't possible.

It's always the few lowest examples of humans f*cking things up for the majority; causing all the work for other to prevent their childishness.

Actually, reality and a game are different things.
Yes, it was suicide to try to take off under an attack of an airfield. But, it was also suicidal to attack an airfield by one fighter! Isn't it?
Burning skies server (ie map, AAA etc) or/and specific of DCS allows you to "hold under control" whole airfield by one little fighter without any consequences for the fighter. It is kind of fantastic. Maybe there were such situations during WWII but not systematically.

Moreover, if you have Spitfire and you took off under attack - you can do nothing. Why? Because Me-109K can run away without any problems.

So, according to these facts in the DCS, Germans had to destroy ALL England's airfields, destroy all England's planes etc etc. As we know from the history it is not true.
Why didn't it happen?

Hey sure if the 1 little minus point on your make believe K/D bothers you that much then by all means lets just put back in the uber flak so that everyone who flies too badly to win a dogfight can run away and hide over the base until the coast is clear enough for him to climb back to outer space again.

tbh it's the same 2 or 3 people actually strafing every time anyway. Just ban them and be done with this nonsense.

It comes down to the airfields are just much to close IMO. Too easy to takeoff fly 5 minutes and be on top of the enemy base. Just my thoughts

When I get forced to Fly 15 Minutes and spot nothing from our current 5 Players with not so optimal Spotting system, I will stay especially now on top of the enemy Base to find some one...

Yes, it is true that aifields are close to each other, but there are not a lot of pilots on the server. If they increase the distance between airfields - pilots won't find each other at all.

So, question is - how it possible that you stay over enemy airbase? AAAs are not enough effective? How to prevent that somebody could stay long time over enemy airbase?

What about more flak zones sporadically placed and increasing in density the closer to the home airfields? You could almost divide the map and show a line thats indicated from this xxx point this is German controlled territory expect resistance etc?
