Hi all,

 

Yesterday evening i attended FIF for the first time, very pleased to fly with a lot of guys i met in the last 2 episodes of Bloody April in the air and on TS. Allthough i registerd months ago (wich i forgot :rolleyes: ) Trupabow was nice enough to tell me FIF was on (wich i totally forgot :blink: ) and so i made my first flight in a Dolphin. (btw i registered again, perhaps better to forget that, if i remember well i was assigned to the entente blue group)

 

Well.....that didn't take long because i was concentrating on getting as fast as possible to my buddies waiting for me high up. Made the mistake not to look over my shoulder more frequently and got bounced by a D7, So that was my first experience with FIF......about 6 minutes :D . After that i got in the backseat as gunner with J2_Hornet and we managed to get the german train with our guns, no enemies in sight.

 

But reading the rules i read that dead is dead. But allthough i was shot down in the Dolphin i could take another one. I didn't because i stick to the rules but is this correct?

 

Then i read somewhere that the map isn't always on the same server and alhough i have the ts-adres from the no42 squad, isn't there another one?

 

I suddenly had a "game server connection lost"......are you allowed to get back in? Not to start all over again but as a gunner?

 

Really had a good time and especially seeing 60-70 pilots taking it serious and i'm pretty sure i will be there the next time  ;)

SALUTE! ST_Marx,

You did the right thing. We use the honor system in FIF. As a pilot if you get killed or captured you can't be a pilot again for the rest of the session,but you can be a gunner as many times as you want.

When you get disconnected no harm no foul,you can come back and jump in the pilots seat again.

Since you're a member of the blue team you'll always use the No.42 TS regardless of what server we fly on.

Hope this helps and glad you had a good time. I know we did.

Hi Marx, good to have you on this forum! :)

 

It's also good to see that you READ THE RULES, which is extremely important in this kind of event.  So THANKS!

 

Probably the biggest thing that will help you is to know WHO your Blue team commander is, and how your team disseminates their instructions or plans before each session.  Always be on your team's official TeamSpeak channel so that you're always in-the-know as to what's going on real-time in the session.

 

Hopefully you understand the difference between dead-is-dead, and being shot down.  If you can manage to survive being shot down, and not captured on the enemy side of the lines, you CAN fly again after waiting the prescribed time between flights (if your commander allows you to take another plane).  So do your best to avoid the above situations, and hopefully you'll live a long time and have a lot of fun flying.

 

S! Sir

thanx for the replies guys!

 

I was on the correct TS, got that adress earlier from Hardy. 

 

So if i manage to land on my side of the lines i'm allowed to fly again, good to know. I only have the same problem as always.....being a terrible dogfighter with limited recourses like no trackir, small monitor so i'm always 1 step too late......after 4 years of ROF one would say it's about time you get one!!!! :rolleyes:  :D

 

 

I will definatly be there next saturday, weekdays is difficult for me as my job (truckdriver) wants me to get up at 4 am and bed relatively early.

 

Till next week!  S!

That's correct - you're allowed to fly again, if you safely land in "your" territory, or at one of your airports.  It's only if you die, or if you land in enemy territory (ie. are captured) that you are relegated to gunner duty.

 

Keep in mind there is a 5 minute delay before you can takeoff (as pilot) in another plane, even when you land successfully at your aerodrome, though.

 

In fact, that should probably mentioned as a general reminder, as it seems that a number of folks seem to be forgetting that little wrinkle (assuming I'm reading the logs properly).

 

 

Regards,

4 <S!>
