Looking forward to our squads' collaboration! :D

I will be live streaming during these events, so if you want to make an appearance on my Twitch videos, now's your chance! For those who enjoy watching the streams, I'll post them in this thread and on the ROF Facebook group. ;)

Salute and see you in the skies tonight! :icon_e_salute:

Fingers crossed that the lag-time from the West Coast is acceptable.  WarGrounds realism is just what this pilot needs.

Salute all! Had a FANTASTIC time this evening! At one point, we had the server full to 30 pilots!  :icon_eek:

 

Here is the archived twitch stream of this evenings fights, including a pulse pounding dogfight with our friendly rivals, the US103rd! (Starting at the 47 minute mark.)

That was great fun. Easily most number of players I've been online with in ROF.
I was in the SE5a softening Buttzel (DFW) up for you Hotlead early in the stream :icon_e_biggrin:

Later in Bruay was fortunate to team up with the US103rd, so yeah, that was my SE5a you surprised over your field. The Spads had gone low to help out the fight down there and i stayed high, but the low fight petered out quick and we were focused on rejoining when suddenly the sky was full of Fokkers!

Can see from your view that i had a decent high position, so if id been alert enough the whole fight might have been different. Kinda let the team down there, sorry chaps.

Anyway, got back safely and it was good learning. Thanks to Hunter and US103 for having me along :icon_e_salute:

Yes! was a good time  :icon_e_biggrin:  ...lots of targets :icon_mad:  (at peak 23 pilots). Though a little one sided (allied pilots time to represent) , still nice to see a good crowd on a weekday. Count me in for next week :icon_cool: !

And a big S! for the US103rd and JG1 Squads for throwing the wingding !

Looking forward to next week's Fly-In as well.

 

This past event was a great start for something that the 103rd and JG1 cooked up in only a few days.

 

Now if we could only get more maps with lots of great targets for me and my DH4 to bomb...

Nice! Was great to see you there Paul! Even though I bounced you, you managed to dive out and escape. Well done!

I do not fly with them anymore (no longer a member) and as a squad we had not done anything in some time. I Fly Central is active but mostly with his flying blog (which if you have not checked-out please do !). Tycoon post here every once in awhile but have not seen him in the air for sometime. Teddy is just plain MIA.

hey Hells.  Central and Teddy are both over on the dark side (Il-2).  If you're curious, Teddy is still Teddy...He's currently pissed off at one of us (Klugermann, last week, I think, or maybe me, this week) and so we haven't seen him for 2 or 3 weeks! :P

 

Who is this Tycoon guy?  Was he in SI squadron?

I can't remember if it was because he had no interest in US cities  or because I asked him if he sat on a phone book in order to play.

Hey guys! Had a great time again this evening on Wargrounds! Thank you to all who showed up! 

You can see the archived Twitch stream here:
https://www.twitch.tv/videos/178251312

 

This time around, I thought the sides were pretty even as far as players per side go. However, I'd love to hear Hunter's thoughts. I am certainly willing to fly Allied if need be, as are most (if not all) of JG1. We're just here to have a good time.  :icon_e_biggrin:

 

We will be back next Thursday! Hope to see you all there!  :icon_e_salute:

Hotlead et al!

 

Thanks for the fun tonight!

 

We will be back next week as well. I've told my guys that we are going to join allied TS in New wings server next week so we can better coordinate with some of the other brave entente airmen. It felt like it was always 2-3 of us attacking 6-8 bosche, it was a pretty frustrating night for 103rd. Allies are pretty disjointed, we'll try to fix that. Contrary to the real thing the allies were actually outnumbered most of the night.

 

S!

Sorry to hear about the frustration, Hunter! Yeah, it seemed that of all the Allies that night, the US103rd were the only ones flying high at about 3k. Unfortunately, a lot of us Huns were there too, and we usually had 4-6 guys on Teamspeak as flights very close to each other. Not much 2 SPADs can do against 6 or so coordinated enemies (+ others not on channel with us!). I think you are right, a more coordinated Allied side would have a better fighting chance. I know I Got Shot likes to get on New Wings Teamspeak and organize massive gaggles of Allied planes to make life miserable for Huns. If he's there next week, I think it would be a great idea to link up with him and whoever else is in channel with him!

Also, like I mentioned before, JG1 can fly Entente. We just typically don't like to split ourselves up where we are fighting each other (except for JG1_Vikner...the guy seems to get a warped sense of pleasure from doing that lol).

There were several of us on NW TS, coordinating which targets to go after. While Entente was outnumbered, and the 103rd did seem to get tangled up with the D7's, their distraction allowed us to hit all the targets and win the map for Entente in both of the missions that I saw -- Great work guys!

 

To HotLead's point we'd love to have you guys join us on TS to coordinate tasks and tactics if you're so-inclined.

 

 

Cheers,

Sorry Hunter for not jumping on the Entente side like I said I would :icon_e_sad: but When I came on FragelGT was already on the Central side so what could I do, any way he said the sides favored the allied when he came on, seemed like it was fairly even for the most part. Plus you had speed and Shot, And like speed said you won the map.

All so like you said the D7F is a hard bird to fight with when your in a spad, That's why you have the camel. Stay low and escort the bombers, The D7f is useless against a low flying camel.

 

I did join the Entente side on the second map but my computer shut down in the middle of doing recon, grrrrrrr did that in the first map as well while shooting up an se5, now that is frustrating.

Hey guys!

Over the next couple weeks, I'll be producing a cinematic flight sim video for our Thursday night flights on Wargrounds. If you guys would want to send me the raw flight tracks of your best Thursday night moments, I'll add 'em to the video! :D

To find your recorded tracks on your PC, go to: C:\Program Files (x86)\1C-777\Rise of Flight\data\Tracks

In there, you'll see 2 types of files: folders and .trk files. I'll need both the folder and the .trk file for each track you want to send me.

To get those files to me, you can use whatever link you want. If you've never done something like this before, I'd reccomend using Google Drive:
https://www.google.com/drive/

It's really easy to upload and share things with.

If you ever wanted to be a silver screen star, now's your time! Just let me know if you have tracks you'd like in the movie and I'll try to get them included! :)

S!

For some reason none of your twitch streams play for me here in UK. I have watched them before. I get a black screen and 'network error' message.

Any ideas?

Have you tried watching from different internet browsers? That's the first thing I check if I am having trouble with internet pages loading.

Woo hoo! A IRFC ROF renunion!!!

 

The next 2 fly-ins are scheduled on Wargrounds, officially starting at 8pm Central US time. (Although people do get on earlier than that.) 

 

Here is the archived stream from last week's fly-in. Was a lot of fun!!!

https://go.twitch.tv/videos/180023872

 

Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the next 2 fly-ins, but I am seriously looking forward to returning to the skies after that!  :icon_cool:  :icon_mad:  :icon_e_salute:

Requiem! Anyone from the old IRFC would be a welcome addition! The dominions are needed to defend liberty and the British way of life! We need some scrappy camel jocks like Mols and an eagle eyed Captain Darling! That will put some fear into the bosche!

 

Now if only we can get the camel and tripe un-nerfed....
