Please make at least your team captain available on the 64th Aggressors Teamspeak during match play. Team captains, as well as being the primary contact, will also be responsible for referee decisions throughout the year. This is needed in order to ensure that all rulings are as impartial as possible. More details about this will be provided as we get closer to league start.

This list of rostered pilots is concrete. You are NOT allowed to fly with different pilots for each match. The wingman you start the year with is who you must end the year with. RIO are not part of pilot registration and can be added and removed at any time.

Please use the template below as a guide and post in a new post in this thread to register your team. It is very important that you include as many pilots as possible that will be competing in the leagues. It is also crucial that home country of each pilot and Zulu time be included for information on The Merge.

Everyone! There has been a massive change to the timing and layout of the leagues. Please see the rules for clarification, but in short, Arena will be split into 2 leagues to accommodate a much larger time spread for the world and the players. There will be an American league that will fly Tuesdays at 0000z and a European league that will fly Thursdays at 1900z. The end of the year tournament will be an inter-league tournament to find and define 1 overall winner. Please adjust your signups accordingly and check the amended signup example for a slight change.
