I originally wanted to write something but all I need is to quote.

Also, can we get any clue if DEVs are considering re-introducing training mode? I know before .9 implementing co-op was advertised by pretty much anyone as a new training mode but apparently that just didn't work...

The thing with the training-servers was, that you could get used to vehicles and weapons

You could crash one jet after the other and they just respawn after one is away from the spawnplace

Now you have to wait 20min like on a normal server, or waste tickets AND wait 20min for the jet on a public game

Would be great to get training servers back up.

Firstly it was very good to learn how to fly choppers / jets or to drive vehicles like tanks etc. which you normally can't even get to use on a normal server (e.g. some people instantly creating a HELO-squad grabbing all the assets) and when you would get one you would only crash because you've only flown some BF2 vanilla choppers. Secondly it was also a great deal of fun when not wanting to go on a "serious" round to just fly / drive around a bit, trying to hit some houses etc.

I can't really understand why this option was removed. The argument that training server where a "haven" for people who just wanted to fool around or something isn't really valid. A part of these people probably hang around on normal servers now and I can't see the point anyway of forbidding people to do what they like on a training server because after all it is a training server!

Fly in Deployment Local Mode or with some of the normal air assets in Co-op, is my advice. Bring your friends if you need help or want company. (go on Hamachi)

Kashan Training was nothing but a rapefest all over and not an effective place for learning.
I do agree that there should be a new kind of Training mode, albeit different from the former Kashan and Qinling Training.

Was this a new phenomenon with v0.9? I last played training mode in the (probably earlier) v0.8 days and I can't remember it beeing a "rapefest". Ok, I got shot down a few times by AA but hey that happens in actual games too and I got to learn how to cope with it. And when you didn't want to be shot down you could just fly around some other part of the map. I just don't understand why something is removed from the game when each person can decide if they want to play it or not. Just getting rid of it with no proper alternative (Co-op, empty servers with insame spawn times, etc.) because some people didn't like it isn't really a solution IMHO.

Didn't know that was available in previous versions but I wish it was now. Would've helped me very much, and others as well. Has me thinking about Americas Army with all the training crap you have available to do, target practice, sniper training, weapon introduction, individual weapon training, airborne training, the stuff was unbelieveable.

Here's a thought. Why not bring back Practice mode, but hardcode it so that it can only be run offline, on a persons computer. Noobing isn't fun when there is no one else around, and you can still get in your flying practice.

Using Co-op for flying practice is great if you're practicing choppers, but jets don't handle the same in Co-op, and I don't know many players who are going to start a normal match, just to wait 20 minutes for the jets to spawn.

Not everyone has easy access to a clan that runs dedicated training programs. Those people are SOL.

The beatings will continue untill morale improves.

Uh, I'm pretty sure that training attracts people that run counter to what PR should be.

Thing is, at this very moment they are baseraping on some co-op server at kashan desert laughing demoniacally.
So.. problem solved, huh? Players are hardcoded, if he's an ass, he will be, no matter what.

arent there enough people longing to get the training mode back now? id love it! there is no similar possibility to get into many of the games features or for simple practice!

coop? cant work with that and i dont really see the coherence between the main game and this curious mode.
