    Long lost pilot reporting back!

    Hello all!

    A few years ago - 2017 I think - I fired up CloD for the first time and flew some brilliant sorties with Pattle, Marlow and others. Since then I have been MIA thanks to real life but have since got back into the cockpit with a shiny new VR headset and a WIP virtual pit including a TMaster Warthog. Keen to fly with you all again and thought I would pop in and say hello!

    Is anybody flying much Great Battles or is there more of a focus on CloD? Have not had the chance to jump into Tobruk yet but it looks a masterpiece. I am looking forward to the VR implementation!

    G'day Charley n welcome back.
    I think a lot of us have GB along with DCS, RoF, Flying Circus, MS Flight Sim, X Plane etc.
    Don't have VR myself but perhaps the time will come one day. From what I hear u don't go back once hooked on VR.
    TF have made a great WW2 sim even better and Tobruk is an outstanding achievement so dive in m8. VR is in the pipeline so stay tuned.
    Above all....have fun.
    System specs:
    Gaming laptop: Metabox P750ZM, CPU Intel i7-4790K @ 4GHz, GTX 980m with 8Gb DDR5 VRAM, 16Gb Dual channel DDR3 RAM, 2 x Samsung EVO 840 500Gb SSDs, Win10 Home 64bit.

    Gaming PC: Asus Rampage III Gene mobo, i7 960 3.2Ghz cpu (running at 3.8Ghz), Noctua dual HS & fan cpu cooler, 24GB Kingston 1600mhz triple channel ram, Samsung EVO 500GB SSD, Corsair 750w psu, EVGA GTX 1070 6GB vram vid card, Windows 10 Pro 64bit.

    Hi Charles.......thanks loads for remembering us and particularly............... for coming back! Now we can have some more fun!

    Yes, most of us are still here. Everybody has to take a rest every now and again for Real Life purposes and, of course, for keeping the wife happy, but, I for one, keep coming back! As Torian mentions VR is on the way and could be a game changer. I still use my old set up of Track Ir5, etc and it works fine for me. I will be saving my pennies for the big VR change which, as already mentioned, will come eventually.

    Many of us still fly 8.00pm BST until around 11.00pm BST so do jump in to whichever server we are on and say 'hello.' As an old timer you are assured a warm welcome! Looking forward to having you 'wing up' with us soon. Salute!

    Tobruk is definitely worth investigating.
    Cheers.

    Thanks for the warm welcomes!
    I've recently taken to the Hawker Tempest in SP, would love to try her out in IL2 GB's multiplayer some time if anybody was keen to join!
    Hopefully join you all around the 8-11pm BST mark on the weekend

    Hi Charles......great to hear of your up coming 'come back!'

    Unfortunately, I have to drive north on Saturday on family business which involves a week's stay in Lancashire, England...so I will miss your first sorties. Never fear, the rest of the chaps will be around to 'wing up' and I will look out for you on my return to the skies around September 14th. Until then, I'll be suffering from lack of all things aviation! In the meantime.....enjoy! Salute!

    I'd love to see a TFS quality Typhoon in 6.0 to have something to cope with the 190s ...
