Player List, seeding and brackets

  • Added Discord information : CSL (Cross Simulation Lobby) run by "A.S" - Address-----> https://discord.gg/ktbTkDW
  • Added DCS branch info to the registration form - as of now, both open beta and release are the same, this may change in the meantime. We will make a call on which version will be used later. It's always better to have both DCS branches installed to avoid any hassle. For those who are tight on disk space, there is a way to switch between branches without having to have 2 separate installs--->https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=114030
  • Added new rule--->Landing on the carrier is not needed to collect the round if the carrier is damaged by either players to the point where landing becomes impossible
  • Mission File ------------->http://sa-sim.com/download/hornet-cup-mission-file/

  • Added the brackets and match schedule.
    All times are in ZULU-----> REFERENCE CLOCK----->https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/timezone/zulu
    • DCS Branch--------->Latest version of Open Beta (if OB gets another update in the meantime, please run the update - if you are on Stable version, it is really easy to switch to Open Beta, please refer to Post#2 of this same thread for reference, call in the Command Prompt and navigate to your BIN folder inside your DCS folder before running the Updater)
    • Server name-------->Situational Awareness - SA-SIM.COM
    • password------------>will be given to you on Discord
    • Discord address----->https://discord.gg/ktbTkDW (please use Discord App not the browser-based version and set it to Push-to-Talk)
    • Discord channel----->DCS-HORNET-CUP
    • Please, be on Discord at least 15mn before the start of your match, if you fail to turn up, we will unfortunately have to call in another contestant off the wait list.
    • Please, reboot your computer and router just before tuning up on Discord (unclogs your bandwidth and helps preventing bad connection and drop offs, which may cost you the match)
    • Please turn off Windows Updater or any app that may run automatically in the background while you are flying as it may cause lag/warping. If you are lagging too much in relation to the server, we will have to stop the match and grant your opponent a walk over win.
    • All matches will be live streamed on Twitch.

    Any queries, please PM here.

    Good luck to you all!

If stable and open beta are on different versions which one we are going to use? My vote goes to OB for latest Hornet goodies.

Also fuel dumping is synced between clients now so if no fuel dumping allowed would be more preferable way now it's possible to do that since we can see if someone is dumping fuel.
