RIGHT, I know this has slipped from everyone's minds, including mine, but hopefully now the fall campaign is over there is some time to spare.

Disco and deaxter are the last pair of round one left to fight, and you are flying tier 7 multis. (I gave demostene a deadline which he did not meet, I have disqualified him accordingly. congrats to lucky Ziptop.) I have redrawn the tier because the last one was not applicable to both contestants. I will be able to adjudicate battles on most Saturdays, but players are fully permitted to engage without me so long as they both confirm the result on this thread. I am now setting up private message groups for a pair and myself to discuss timings on. Can I please ask the two people (I won't name you as it is against the rules, but you should know who you are) who have not added me to their in game contacts to do so, as this allows me to see if you and your opponent are online at the same time. If you do not want to be in my contact list, please let me know and I will remove you after the event. I'm not upset, I just want to urge you to do this as it means I don't have to send a message to you every time your opponent is online.

 

Thank you for your time and the best of luck to you all.

Let me please correct that, my stupid butter fingers meant to type tier 3 multis. :facepalm: I haven't got the slightest clue as to how I made such a blunder.

Thanks again for your patience and best of luck.

Should have read this part!

 

i do not have enough planes of different classes at different tiers not much fun flying in a untuned plane with a 90% pilot facing a specialised and highly tuned enemy

 

 

Count me out next time, many thanks for the invite

 

Good luck to the winner!

The battle was fought and Deaxter_hero came out victorious.

My condolences to Disco, I would like to thank him for being a good sport. 

 

 

The pairs for round two are as follows:

Group 1: zen_monk_ and Ziptop.                  

Group 2: 0berhessen and Deaxter_hero.

 

I will post aircraft later.

I'm around early afternoon Sunday. Then I'm off working out of town until Friday night. I'll let you know what the hotel WiFi is like in the week. It's Norway so it might be ok for competitive play.

It should be in your PM. (i use this opportunity to congratulate Ziptop on his victory in advance :teethhappy: I don't have anything even remotely competitive on LF tier 4 - all stock with 4-5 skill points crews)

Lol. 

I didn't see anybody around over the weekend. 

Zen - you have nothing to worry about. I'm pretty sure that even the greatest advantage on my part might not be quite enough. 

As it is, my T4's sort of got jumped over on the way up the tiers and they too are all mostly stock* fairly low skill pilots taking the place of those expert pilots that migrated up the tiers. 

* None specialized but I think I might have an advanced sight on the Bf 109 B

Well as it's Christmas tomorrow (:ohmy:) I don't think anyone has much time to spare, so there will be a cease fire until next year. One thing that deserves a mention though is watching players log off and then their opponent log on 5 minutes later. As it turns out it's actually quite amusing.:teethhappy:

 

 

So I wish you all a very merry Christmas and I will see you in the new year.:)

Finally we met up with deaxter_hero, his choice german engineering:TA 152 - high altitude big caliber bumm bumm

My choice was the Vampire F.1, i tried to force him down, but i wasnt able to compete with his speed and altitude possibilties.

Good turning planes do not always win...

It took him a while but finally two hits of his guns shred me into pieces.

Enjoyed the battle, and congratulations to deaxter_hero aka "Death from Above" :)

Thank you Oberhessen for your kind words. You fought well. You broke my engine in the first fight and I was quite anxious how I can do in second iteration. So it was tense till the end. You brushed off 208 out of my 363 hitpoints. Final score 2:0. I have to thank also nitemare_gary again for staging this, because there is frankly speaking nothing as intense in this game as true one on one dogfight. My heart was pumping like in old good 1.4 times. And the choice of aircraft in this particular match reminded me of those cool days of Beta when there were two kings at tier 8: Me 262 and P-51H. And some of the tactics could be seen in our match today - more maneuverable plane drags faster plane down picking up the speed in the process and then trying to catch it while it zooms out. Thank you again.

Regardless of the winner, you both deserve a medal for finding each other in-game.:teethhappy:

 

But please, I don't deserve praise. All I do is sit behind my keyboard twiddling my thumbs. You lot are the ones doing all the work and making this happen. So I want to say a big thank you to everyone, and a happy new year.

But you were the one, who came up with this!

So far - no matter if i loose or win - i really enjoy this contest.

Its a great idea to suprise the opponents with the Tier and Aircrafttype, its exciting and thrilling to see what plane the other one is coming up with.

 

Best wishes to you and thank you for this contest!
