New server has emerged on the IL-2 Sturmovik: Great Battles scene as multiplayer for that series continues to grow. Two WB-Clash of Eagles servers have just been launched and the team behind it is putting out a call for help testing the new setup. Here are a few details you may want to know about the new server.
What is WB-Clash of Eagles about?
The new servers, created by virtual squadron 1st.ROF Netherlands, feature both relaxed and expert level settings with the same essential goal on both – capture the enemy’s airfields and move your way across the map.
WB-Clash of Eagles is the second server I’ve run across that will feature a dynamic moving frontline (with the Air Attack Tactical Combat being the first) that moves as the round continues on and where airbases will change hands dynamically. It amps up the level of chaos on the server and should provide for some tense moments.
Each airbase has a number of hardened targets. Destroy these and the field will be ripe for the taking. Paratroopers dropped on the field will then enable it to change hands.
It’s an interesting concept and one that will increasingly favour teamwork as well as ensuring that transport pilots have a dedicated role to play on the server alongside bombers, fighters, and attack planes.
Concept and execution
Described above is the basic concept but now they need to test it in action. An open beta is now running and the community is invited to jump in and try it out. The server also has SRS support so be sure to load that up and give that a try too.
The server’s new website features details about the rolling aircraft set, the concept, rules, and charts for each of the airbases that can be captured. Check out WB-Clash of Eagles online here and visit their Facebook page here.
I look forward to trying it out soon!
