So I guess we don't have to signup in advance, we just join side of preference and stick to it till it's over?

To all Firefox users:

Gadget won't auto-refresh on Firefox 68.0.2 (gadget implementation issue), I recommend using my greasemonkey-addon (free, MIT License) script (the "30" in the script equals 30 seconds, you can customize as you wish):

Code:
// ==UserScript==
// @name     refresh BlueFlag gadget
//
// @version  1
// @grant    none
//
// @include  http://gadget.buddyspike.net/
// @include  http://gadget.buddyspike.net/map/persiangulf
// @include  http://gadget.buddyspike.net/map/caucasus
// ==/UserScript==

setTimeout(function(){ location.reload(); }, 30*1000);
Download greasemonkey Addon here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/fir.../greasemonkey/

And enjoy the tour! That the best communicating/teamplaying team may win!

Update about side switching -
During the official tour in PG (September), we will accept side switch only by 2nd of September 18:00 Zulu.
After that time, we will no longer be accepting side switching unless it's a new player that just joined and entered his desired side wrongfully.
Notice - such cases will be checked and would require more time then usual.

So, is anyone else bothered by the poor side balancing or is it just me?

Tried out BF today, went really well but a few things I wanted to ask about.

Carrier is not moving.
Can we have the carrier do a box patrol pattern at 30kts? It should be possible with less than 10 Waypoints for a server run time of 3 hours.

Tankers not contactable and very slow.
I was vectored out to a KC130 who was doing around 180kts (can this be ramped up a bit?) I tried every radio frequency given in the -Freq menu but was unable to contact him to get the basket out so I had to RTB to Lavan.

No co-ords for waypoints.
Is there any chance we could have the lat long for Bullseye and other airbases added to the briefing so we can enter Nav data without using the F-10 map?


Server was super stable for the time I was in, looking great guys!

Thanks Mav!
We will look into the items you sent!

There's already a first round winner, redfor has won the first round and the map has been reset.
Remember, teamwork and dedication will win this tour!

Good luck to all participants!

"no changes fore the official tour" - Buddy spike staff
Broken Mirage patch introduced 4 days into official round.
~971 flight hours and 422 pilots on Blue team VS 1456 flight hours and 561 pilots on Red team.
2000's hardware vs 1980's and early 90's hardware.
4 flight of F/A-18 = 24xJSOW A, 8xJSOW C, 8xAIM-120c, 8xAIM-9x and more S/A than any "Acers Kom bats" arcade BS.
