Default SATAL 2019








Squadron Air to Air League - Starting April 2019

POWERED BY HEATBLUR, THRUSTMASTER, AND EAGLE DYNAMICS AND IN ASSOCIATION WITH FOXX MOUNT, TACVIEW, BUDDY-FOX, AND WILD WEASEL APPAREL






SIGN-UP STATUS: CLOSED


SCHEDULE
The schedule for matches can be found at The Merge on Splash One Gaming. All matches are currently set to start at 1400z on Saturday and Sunday of each week. To check what Zulu time is for you, see here.


WHAT IS SATAL

DCS World Events, in conjunction with Heatblur, Thrustmaster, and Eagle Dynamics are proud to announce SATAL 2019 - Squadron Air to Air League! SATAL allows for the action and interest that surrounds SATAC be experienced year round. SATAL's goal is to create a structured league that concludes in a single elimination tournament. Whereas SATAC is an intense 2-3 week championship, SATAL will be more of a slow burn year round competition. This is SATAL's second year and we hope to bring all of the action that was so exciting from last year back into focus for 2019.


STREAMING
All streams will be taking place on the DCSWorldEvents Twitch channel with after action replays and highlights available on Youtube.


PRIZES
DCSWorldEvents is proud to announce that in addition to Heatblur sponsoring SATAL, both Thrustmaster and Eagle Dynamics have also come on board as official sponsors to the event. The extent and size of these prizes is a first in DCS World history and continues to grow year after year as support increases. We hope that having these will bolster the enjoyment for the teams that want to fight for glory in the DCS skies.

- EWR will be active and available for both teams. The EWR for each team will be stationed at various points inside the engagement bubble and will be invincible.
- Air frame selection is permanent during individual matches. Teams must choose a set line up for each match and stick with that format.
- You may NOT change the air frame line up between rounds of a match. eg. choosing 4 F15, 2 Su27 cannot be altered until the next match. This same rule is applied to Gold League as well.
- Payload violations and aircraft violations will result in a loss for the round where the infractions took place. Teams should not leave the server/TS until a final decision has been made and agreed. Decisions often occur at the end of the round. Be prepared to fly another round if a referee decision mandates it otherwise you may miss out.
- No RTB to refuel and rearm is allowed after entering the bubble.
- All aircraft are permitted for use in this league.
- A ping limit of 300 will be strictly enforced. Server will auto kick anyone over this limit.

- Pilots flying in the Gold League are allowed to fly a limited number of rounds/matches in the Diamond League if they have a team present in both leagues. However, Gold League pilots are limited to 3 rounds total for the year of Diamond League play while still maintaining eligibility to continue participating in the Gold League. If I pilot flies anymore than 3 rounds, even partial, of Diamond League play, they will be deemed ineligible to continue flying in the Gold League and will have to finish out the season as strictly an Diamond League competitor.

- Breaking payload rules during the round leads to an automatic loss of that round for the at fault team. If a payload infraction is noticed only after the match has concluded an automatic loss will be handed to that team at the time of ruling.
- Jester is banned from use. If an F14 is used both pilots must be human controlled. There is no limit on the number of pilots only the number of aircraft. Therefore if a team took 6 Tomcats they would need and be allowed 12 pilots.

*Note: Tournament rules, weapons and missions are subject to change


REGISTRATION
Please make at least your team captain available on the 64th Aggressors Teamspeak during match play. Team captions, 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 and selected aircraft is not concrete. You are allowed to fly with different pilots for each match bearing in mind the above rules regarding pilots flying in Gold and Diamond league teams. Teamspeak or Discord will be needed this year in order for organizers to have the ability to reach teams if necessary. Names and aircraft are not (yet) binding. Teams may add pilots to their roster during the tournament. Please provide us with their name and whether they will be flying Diamond or Gold league prior to match day. See above rules regarding eligibility.

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.

Quick question about one of the rules



"- EWR will be active and available for both teams. The EWR for each team will be stationed at various points inside the engagement bubble and will be invincible."



Does this mean there will be no AWACS or is the wording a little off? Having no AWACS means datalink for Russian aircraft (from the EWR) but no SA for Western aircraft.
