It's a WW2 flight combat simulator being made by a Russian company (1C) in conjunction with a US distributor (777 Studios). They call it a 'sim' but it's not a sim, it's a game. One in which they have bent certain parameters so as to hugely favour the Russian aircraft and nerf the German ones.

In order to hide their chicanery they have been hiding negative posts in an access-only forum (only purchasers of the alpha version can get in there, at £50/$100 a pop), deleting threads and posts and harassing, bullying and threatening posters via PM, along with 30-day bans.

Then they put the game on Steam. And have now continued their behaviour there; locking posts and banning Steam Account holders from that forum despite them breaking no rules.

You seem so bitter, almost like a loser Nazi. The difference between a great flight sim vs flight game is strictly in the optional settings; you can set it as an arcade game, or as a highly detailed sim and various combos in between to suit yourself.

If you have experienced Rise of Flight, you would appreciate the excellent quality produced by 777 Studios. Since even heavily modded IL-2 1946 is old and basically obsolete now, this new IL-2 BoS is worth trying and supporting. I'm sure they will be improving and tweaking it if necessary, but we need a new, modern WWII flight sim/game. Meanwhile, I strongly suggest you try RoF if you want a really great WWI flight sim/game.
