Is there something we can do to help you guys analyze the performance? There was pretty bad warping last night when the server had just restarted. Also I was flying from kutaisi and had pretty terrible framerates over ambrolauri farp.

I dunno I like the kill messages off.

Both for a2a and a2g it adds the amount of uncertainty you would have in a combat scenario and makes the whole thing more exciting imho.

There is enough servers with kill messages on and as said before there is the online stats.

Also if you really fancy kill confirmations, ask your GCI, he can give you nicknames.

Blueflag imho is the team based server individual pride and such should not stay in the way of creating an enviroment where collective effort to collect and distribute information is needed.

I cant say that I dont fancy it myself in a2a from time to time but imho blueflag is aboute more then just a2a pewpew.

I agree with you Microvax and most here on their view on why no kill messages but sometimes fear is a weapon and so is morale, take down a feared opponent and morale goes up, seeing your fighters getting done by a known F/A-10 pilot and fear ensues. For me it adds immersion and rivalry within the community rather than just another black trail in the sky or fighter rushing past my parachute, was that AI, does it matter. At the end of the day we're not doing this for the sake of our country and futures we're doing this for enjoyment with and against others, I like to know who that pilot is that gave me a good fight or wrecked my base, buddies and high tailed it home. There was a time in Blue Flag were awards were given for the guys that drove their team on or instilled fear in your team, everyone voted on this and much respect was given, those days were more enjoyable.

You've said a lot of beatiful things, but I think the problem here is different: how can u be sure that nobody takes advantage of the chat in the engagements at long distances, maybe shooting a FOX2 when is 10 miles out from the bandit, and then waiting for the splash report in the chat to leave the valleys to resume his flight??

What you've said would be acceptable if the chat had a built-in delay, and also don't forget that you have a magic that can give you callsigns if you want, you can ask in the chat to the enemies to see who splashed you.

I think that in a 2 weeks online campaign server, everybody has to cooperate, no matter the name, the kill ratio ecc..., u wanna win for your side, you establish a relationship with ur buddies, you act like a real squad to pursue a goal. I think that's the spirit everybody has to have when joining BlueFlag
