    Couldn't find a patched pirated version, so I took the risk and bought it for 10E. And it's pretty much playable now - on maxed settings (only without AA) I'm getting 20 - 30 fps over land, and it's still ok over larger cities (though drops noticably when flying very low). I'm planning a major hardware update soon, so it should be way better.

    Never played the IL-2 games before, should I go with 1946 or Cliffs of Dover?

    To followup on the above posts, game is now in alpha early access stage.....which means it's about as unfinished as a procrastinator's novel.

    That being said, have any chumps bros actually taken the plunge and given the alpha a go? Thoughts? Impressions?

    I have not, but from the mood in their forums it's as good as IL2 was at it's time. Flying over Stalingrad and attacking lorries over and over may be boring to some people, but it seems they have a very good foundation.
    The winter terrain is a bit if a turnoff, but I'm convinced they will make a summer map soon after this one is finished. The Lavochkin 5 is just about ready, and Pe-2 and Fw190 are coming soon. I'm sure more interesting stuff will follow in the years to come.

    I think it's already fair to say that this game will become the spirital successor to IL2. This will be the Russian style ww2 flight sim for the next 10 years. I just don't see what could go wrong.

    Thanks BB. I like your enthusiasm.
    A "spiritual successor to IL-2-Russian style WW2 flight sim" with longevity and moddability (of course) is exactly what I'm hoping BoS will be.

    I think that's the pill you have to swallow. I almost completely forgot to tell about mods. But lately I am not much interested in mods as I used to be.
    If the game comes with 8 planes, I think I can live with that.

    Bumping this since technically BoS has been fully released.

    So...anybody actually playing the "final (for now)" product?

    What about the single player campaign modus? I loosely followed previous updates and they were all without the single player campaign.
    They surely did not release that in such short time?

    I think you're mixing this up, 777 are not responsible for CoD.

    Here is how I understand it:
    Ubi pulled the plug, Maddox / Shevchenko were fired
    CoD was released in unfinished state, 1C promised that everything would work out with the sequel/addon Battle of Moscow
    1C pulled the plug on CoD BoM too, when it became clear that the situation would never improve*
    1C gave it to 777 to make a new game with the IL2 name
    2 years later this game is almost ready and looking pretty good

    Some completed assets from BoM may have ended up in BoS, some Russian planes, Me 109s perhaps.
    Otherwise there seems to be no connection to CoD whatsoever
    It is not fair to put 777 in any relation to the CoD desaster, because they work fast, efficient and make reliable software. They completed this project in less than 2 years.

    *I guess when a team has operated under such work ethics for 10 years and not really completed anything, the only option is to fire all of them and start over with a new team.
    The guy allegedly responsible for the IL2 desaster Ilya Shevchenko is currently hiding for what could constitute a kickstarter scam - taking 160,000$ and not finishing anything.
