FAQ
SRS/comms
Spoiler:
BF uses SRS as its main comms. You can always find the latest version of SRS here: https://github.com/ciribob/DCS-Simpl...eleases/latest
This tour SRS is the same as the Persian Gulf SRS we normally use - srs1.flag.blue:5014
Alternatively, you can also just open your SRS client and connect to the DCS gameserver - the SRS autoconnect feature will make sure you're connected to the correct server.
Please note that using SRS (or other comms, such as Discord) is not an enforced requirement, but highly encouraged.
Check out SOP document for additional information such as standard radio procedures or frequencies.

SOP
Spoiler:
The official Operation Blue Flag SOP (Standard Operating Procedures/BF manual) document can be found here: https://tinyurl.com/bf-sop-v2
This link will always hold the latest version of the SOP doc available and contain additional useful information such as coordinate lists or kneeboard images.

TacView
Spoiler:
TacView files for the Persian Gulf server can be downloaded here: https://bit.ly/2T0AmiT
The file with the last timestamp available cannot be opened since it is still being written to by the server - you'll have to wait until the server restarts and creates a new file. Unfortunately, a server crash causes the TacView file for this session to become corrupted.

Discord Coalition HQ Channels
Spoiler:
If you change your Discord nickname (right-click -> change nickname) to match your in-game name exactly, join the server and pick a side, you will automatically (after ~5min) be assigned the corresponding coalition role for the server in this Discord.
The coalition Discord roles provide you with access to your coalition's headquarter channels, which can be used for additional planning, coordination and discussion, as well as the respective voice channels in Discord.

BuddySpike team/staff
Spoiler:
Our staff currently consists of three BuddySpike team members, @Xcom, @Ciribob and @MorpheusXAUT.
All staff are responsible for game server, mission and community/Discord management.
In addition to our admin team, we have a group of @Moderators - currently @=DFA=Cyri | Carbon 1-1 and @Hatefury - supporting us in managing this Discord server.

Side Switching
Spoiler:
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.

how will the "winning coalition" of the tour be decided if both teams won an equal amount of rounds? Is the statistic counting "captured bases" for both teams? (That could be a way of determining)

Just to clarify, for new players:

"A-G - Kh-58Ux2 (A), RN-24, RN-28"

means:
- 2x Kh-58U per player are available (at advanced airbases)
- the RN-24 and RN-28 are banned bombs on BlueFlag.
