The war continues!
For this FiF we will stay with RoF.
This FiF will be on the Tarnopol map and have a full 16 objectives. It will use the very early plane set. Yes, the S-16, S-22and Russian N-17 will be included. The order of secondary objectives has changed from the last FiF.
Because the map is covered in trees and mountains, there is a special consideration for the Entente. For the General Capture mission, you do not need to land to capture the General. You just fly over him and you will get the capture message. A few seconds later you will get the area to search message that leads to the secondary objective "Tanks at a Factory".
There are only 2 bases for each team. If you have a lot of players at a base, please have the first ten players pull forward a couple plane lengths so others can spawn in. Otherwise you might loose planes as people try to spawn in but the spawn in slots are full.
New feature: In the past there has been only one Front Line Recon area. You will now see two areas on the map. They are both active. You can do either one to complete the mission. You do not need to do both. This will help create a little more fog of war. The enemy will not know which one you are doing. If you get interrupted on one you can go do the other one instead. Or you can do both at the same time and the one that gets back first completes the mission.
The practice mission is running on the JG1 Server. Mission start time is 11:00 am and runs for two hours. If you get on and there is not enough time to do a mission, you can kill the balloon at the two seater base to restart the mission. Each team has an Air start base in enemy territory. This is to save time while practicing. It is highly recommended that if you are going to do the special 2 seater missions that you practice them a few times.
There will be a dry run 23 January at the usual time- 2:pm Eastern North American. Remember the server comes up 15 minutes early so people can get in and make sure they have the proper load out.
Hostilities begin on 30, January.
At this point, the teams remain the same. People that have registered are still registered. We will be looking at the number of players and new sign-ups to make sure the teams stay balanced.
We are still in the process of finalizing a few things and will post more details as they become available.
For info please visit the JG1 forums. There you will find a registration section and a tournament info section. The info section will have maps, plane sets and objectives. Please review the objectives as there are more than last time and the order of secondary objectives have changed.
