I would be interested in joining to fly German planes

Recommended Posts

Hi I am new here as of a moment ago. I am new with Rise of Flight with 90 days total time so far counting today. I live in New Hampshire USA in the White Mountains. . I was asked yesterday about this during the time you were flying in the Flanders game. I am guessing this was to see if the server would work for me in the future. I don not understand anacronyms at all like FIF but will search that and others as I happen on them. I real life I am open to many things I don't know about and am 67, so I am too old to be a wise guy and ruin things for others. I do hit planes sometimes , ramming you guys call it, but it is my mistake not on purpose.

In RoF they only other infraction I caused we in Basic Training when I would miss shooting the balloons and hit the hangars in the distance. I got 3 messages saying I was being penalized for shooting friendlies, but I was alone and didn't understand. I mean whats a few bullet holes in a barn  :)

SO if I may, I would like to be placed on a team for beginners if you do that. Thanks for your time. Von Dervare. 

Oh that's a sort of joke it translates to Wonder Where if you say it out loud a few times fast . 

Somehow I think I put this in a wrong place..

Welcome. :)

 

 

Not to worry. While many of us have been doing online flight sims for years, we are all just beginners.

 

FiF = Flanders in Flames. It is the name of the tournament.  It is a 2 hour event on Saturdays at 2 pm Eastern time.  There is no German team. There is a Blue team and a Red team. One plays Entente and the other Central, We play two sessions and then the teams switch sides. The Entente become Central and the Central become Entente. This is to even out any advantage or disadvantage in the plane set or map design. After 4 sessions the plane set is upgraded and we do 4 more sessions.  The tournament is centered around objective accomplishments. The objectives are designed to present the opportunity for aerial combat. Just shooting down planes does not make a win. It  makes a lot of fun.

 

The official registration thread is  here.  The only special requirement would be Team Speak. We communicate between pilots with it.

 

You can look over various aspects of the tournament here.

Thank you for helping and guiding me. I read the rules but am not sure I can remember each one. never having seen the game it's hard to know what I don't understand which is about everything. But I understand dead is dead alright. I do French and Indian War renating and dead is dead there too in a like way . I would like to try.

 

Since I don't know what team I might be allowed on I will have to wait and see if I get on one and then will need to know the TS address numbers.  All of this is fairly new to me. Thanks again. I will check in from time to time to see how it goes.

Guys I have 91 days at the end of today to be on RoF and have no other experience. Each request about if I want, this or that doesn't mean anything. I haven't experienced and don't know. 

As it turns out I am on red team now and I can't find the number for TS address.. That is the next thing for in the game I probably need to do. But right now I have to go plow real snow..

I never know when work and or snow will call it can be anytime day or night any day.

I have all the planes in Rof and all the mods and the english channel map.
I have TS and a new head set , but can't get a sound check.

I probably can't make all the games you guys set up but would like to join to the ones where I can if that is alright.

I have run out of time looking for TS info.
But thanks for the warm welcome.

I have questions I just don't know what they are :)

It's great to see you here Von Dervare! :D 

 

We are always thrilled to have new recruits. What you don't know, we'll be glad to teach you. :) Like Dudley reccomended, I think the Monday night practice is a great place to start. It's a great mix of professional seriousness and fun, and is a wonderful way to get familiar at flying with us. Basically, it's a squadron career night against AI opponents. We have patrol and escort missions, and a running killboard that tracks our pilots' virtual lives.

 

If you have any questions, just ask! Like I said before, we're glad to help.

I know you're just looking for fresh meat ;)

 

I will fly when I can if that's ok ? I will try to make as many flights as I can in a timely fashion. In real life I am on call 24 /7 and have no warning at all . In New Wings games there have been 2 or 3 times when I was flying and had to go I didn't have time to say 'bb' my newest new term :) I thought it meant be back LOL 

 

Wait, against AI ......... Well that's a surprise. No fresh meat fer you LOL

 

I would have guessed it was red team against any other color.Sort of like Cuban's games with no labels, but teams . Well I always say Live and Squirm.. I will find out when you guys are all set and ready for me to find out. .

 

I am curious about the plane settings where there is that graph and a "S" line to set up. I don't understand that at all and have a bad enough time getting my stick setting where the keyboard settings are/ I will do that to get a setting several times before I stumble on it somehow and get the setting. Then I find I should have set it to some other button.

 

I was born about 12,000 years too late . And I would show you if I could figure out How To Upload pics here . Of course that would be very off topic .
