Dogfighting sundays

Post by YSFHQ » Sun Apr 28, 2013 8:49 pm

Here's an idea: we managed to get lots of people on to fight at an event today, which is something the combat community hasn't seen in a long time.

This could work.

Basically, once a week, we have "dogfight day" where we all go and battle it all out. Discuss.

Good idea, I've got a server that we can use if needed. Each weekend we could come up with little mini-events to spice things up a bit, could certainly be a lot of fun.

I'll be down for this. I'll also be willing to give out some pointers to those that need it.

It would be fun to do. If we can get a core group and show it off, it would probably take off. It will need some management, but i like the idea of mini-events.

If something like this were to happen, I'd only be able to make it if it were on a Saturday.

I've been thinking of trying to do some weekly flying. Saturday's generally better for me than Sunday, but I'd definitely support such an effort, and try to show up.

Can't it be either on Saturday or a time that everyone can attend? Last night was too late for me, even at 21:00.

I added a poll to the main post to see what the majority of the guys think.

How about we make this a regular thing on the ysfhq server when it goes up? That way we're still not separating operations and not relying on someone else to host.

EDIT: btw Sunday for some people is Monday. In other words, placing it on Saturday would guarantee that it's on a weekend for everyone.

A lot of people have shown interest in this early on when this thread started. Maybe the best way for this to work is to just show up on the 42 South Server (Midnight Rambler's server) on Saturday and wait for people to show up. I'll try my best to make it this coming Saturday and give tips at aerial combat or ground attack to those that ask for it.

Why don't I just dedicate the server all weekend to fighting? The UFO and cheatplane aren't on there so everything is able to be destroyed.

Rules... Anything goes?
