This is fixed internally...

109 pilots won't be the only ones ... judging from the video it's a European winter .. that's brass monkey weather that is, and I suspect everyone's recticles will be clanking around in the cockpit like nobody's business (fixed or otherwise).

Historically a similar thing happened to the German Panzer crews on the Eastern Front .. I suspect not being used to the weather, their recticles were just frozen solid and as already stated .. that's a serious impediment to effective deflection shooting. The Russians on the other hand, being used to the winter (and due to copious amounts of Vodka no doubt) were able to keep their recticles warm ... and usable.

The moral of this story is of course; you need to keep your recticles warm if you want to win the war!

Saw this up in the browser last night, the other WWII server was maxed out so this needs some loving because the Mustang vs Dora pvp dogfighting is the most exciting and skillfull pvp scene on the internet right now.

Good luck chaps, will pop in soon to litter your airfields with (my own) wreckage!

Will have to check this one out, I'm from Northern Europe and ping on the DoW server is nasty, 150-200ms. Should be about 50ms to any Western Russia server.

DoW server already has good traffic, although I can't see how this would be a problem in the first place. Is there something fundamentally wrong with the Ez 42?

I doubt I'm the only one who uses the gunsight just for a general idea where the guns are pointing, and rely on tracers beyond that. Yeah, I'm no marksman, but it definitely helps to try the best to avoid angles where the target is no longer visible.
