    Hello Chaps

    After a break I have returned to CloD with the new V5, logged onto the servers and where is everyone?

    Do people meet up at the weekend or on particular evenings?

    Re: Hello Chaps

    Hey Gromit, it’s great to see you back!

    I remember how deadly you were flying Hurricane Rotols with 8 peashooters....now you have CANNON!

    Things have tailed off online, part of that is the usual Northern Hemisphere springtime outdoorsy stuff. However, a number of improvements to the sim are just around the corner which will spur renewed interest. I’m giving you access to The Wimpey Forum which will give you a few chuckles, as well as the Pattle Flypast and Derna Death Race Forum combined event held recently.

    Looking forward to catching up with you on Teamspeak!

    Cheers!

    Unfortunately, that's what I'm asking myself. There are very few people on the servers. And with little I could say almost none.
    Sad but true.

    I hope for a change of direction and for people to return to clod, I hope so, but it won't be easy.
    Perhaps making the servers more appealing in some way might have some effect. At least I believe/hope.

    For a player like me (who only plays online) the lack of populated servers is a serious problem.

    We hope the visual update package will bring people back... and of course the new module. (new module will be quite a bit in the future)

    I'm in this for the long haul.

    I've been out of the mix for almost 2 years now.

    but I'm still here... you can probably see me on your 12.


    Cliffs is awesome.

    Hi Gromit,
    it can be quiet somedays, but I would suggest get online anyway, someone will see you and join server and it usually grows from there, Salut and welcome back.
    Don't let Grudges fester and poison your future happiness......get your revenge as quickly as possible.

    Hi there Gromit,
    Keep an eye on the Wimpey thread. I'm hoping to organize a little outing in the next few weeks.
    Cheers,

    Welcome back Gromit.

    The TWC Server is up as much as i can keep it up with a 1941 scenerio....

    One huge mission 24 hrs a day or at least I try. No Changing sides limited aircraft numbers heavy bombing missions, Recon missions that must be completed before targets are assigned. Ability to lead a flight of bombers or go in single with or with out AI cover and a dedicated teamspeak and discord channel.

    Very comprehensive missions that actually move the lines on the map. Why no players .......I dont know I have done all I can in setting a war scenerio up and some play it but no real numbers except on some weekends,,, But you are welcome to fly it all you like sir welcome back <S> Fatal

    Re: Hello Chaps

    Hey, Gromit......really good to see you back! You were an Old Fart when I first stumbled on Cliffs and your voice was one of the first I heard and remembered on Team Speak, some six years ago.

    Now I'm an 'old fart' (but I don't rate a capital 'F' yet!) and I'm still here and going nowhere! Most of us are still flying but the relaxing of restrictions and, as Snap says, Summer (finally) arriving in Blighty means that we sometimes find our flying time stalled! But we are all still here and rarin' to go!

    The updates that Buzz refers to above are keenly anticipated and will give Cliffs a great boost. Meanwhile, Fatal and TWC's Servers are great fun.....always lots of do...and they are VERY challenging!

    Enjoy! Hope to see you up there with us very soon! Salute!

    Hi Gromit,

    I've not been on the servers much myself lately due to work commitments, and guitar practice taking up most of my increasingly limited leisure time, but I have still been keeping a keen eye on this forum, and it's great to see you back.
