Depends on who you ask. Personally I think it’s douchebaggy therefore my squad and I reframe from doing it. However, that’s my opinion but there is no rule against it.

I’m in agreement with you. Just wanted to see if there was an “official” stance on it.

It's a war arena so in my book that means anything goes.

 

 

 

I will refrain from it in this server however as the field ack is Brutal!

 

 

 

The argument then becomes where do you draw the line?

 

 

 

Is a pair of ponies sat on a perch diving on a guy trying to climb out any more noble than a rocket vulch?? It isn't pistols at dawn and war is not fair. So I guess it depends on your own moral fibre and what you would enjoy having done to you.

 

 

 

For me the challenge is defeating the enemy with good ACM. Yes it can be very frustrating when bettered they shallow dive straight to their field ack but you just have to shrug your shoulders, let them go and accept that they are a pansy and you are awesome!

 

 

 

Sometimes people end up over opponents fields whether that be by choice or they just find no opposition in their path. Some people don't have much time on their hands and if they see 3 people sat on the ground twiddling, they think I'll stick a bomb down there.

 

 

Try not to take it personally just get a fresh plane and go get em! :thumbup:

the best players don't engage enemy airfields because off high risk for a loss in the stats. AA is pretty good at keeping the airfield clean. I think it's fine as it is. I managed to get draged into enemy AA yesterday... trigger happy I was :-)

Up until they (or one rather) starts having conniption fits.

They really are great though. And ofc a lot of that comes from working as a team, something I find very lacking tbh. It should be a requirement to be on discord to play the server...like DDCS has. It's not even a hindrance. It is a free tool that everyone in DCS MP should have, there is no excuse to not have and use it. That would force players to get on comms (for once) and would encourage teamwork. Also to actually talk and perhaps socialize to people in general, which is always a plus.

Also to add, I don't strafe people on the ground. It's too risky with AAA, it usually doesn't kill the pilot, and it feels like drop kicking a puppy. However after they take off and leave the protection of their flak, I pounce.

Magic, thanks for the kind words. I agree that teamwork is absolutely critical to succeeding in the 51. The 362nd does a great job of training new recruits so that everybody understands how to work together. Team comms is absolutely critical to that system. I am really privileged to get to fly with and learn from the Sr guys in the 362nd.

 

That said, I personally would not want discord to be required on bs. With discord, you can only be on one voice channel at a time. We as a squadron depend on using our private discord for squad ops before, during and after the game. It would be distracting if non squad members were jumping on the channel and participating without knowing how we communicate and operate.

 

I recognize that this leaves others who aren't in the squad out of the loop. Which is frustrating for lone wolves or new players who don't have anyone to work with.

 

Not speaking for the 362nd, but I personally would support requiring srs or v even better for in game comms where multiple channels can exist. Squads could then still use discord on the side, but it would allow players on the same team near each other to coordinate in an ad hoc fashion.

I don’t think it should be required but I do think that it has its place and more guys should take advantage of any comms system available. That’s actually how the 362nd got started, It was through mutual meeting and flying on the old Burning Skies Team Speak. If more guys took advantage of server discord comms and developed mutual friendships then that leads to more squads and more community involvement which I think ultimately benefits everyone.

Okay, I just registered on Discord and downloaded the app. I’m in the BS server, so then I just join the axis or allies voice deal and start DCS (or visa-versa)? I set the push to talk in Discord as one of my HOTAS buttons, that’s all I need to do to talk in game then?

Discord is independent of DCS so you can start discord and the sim in any order. You have a voice channel selected and you have a PTT setup, just make sure in your discord settings that you have the correct audio device selected. Other then that it’s sounds like your all setup

SRS would be better.
Absolutely! If only more people knew about it, or more importantly, if Burning Skies had a working SRS channel.

Hacker in I-16 on Burning skies, what really weird is all my settings for the spitfire disappeared after I left the server.

Side issue can some roles be added for the Spit CW? It is essentially another aircraft and what with the limited pool of them to choose from it might help. Especially since that one doesn't suffer the gunsight bug. ;)

 

I'd really appreciate this one, I'd love to have a go flying it in MP.

  • 2 weeks later...

Seems like it gets up to about 25-30mins in fine, then disconnects, no longer on multi player list.

 

 

 

Elapsed time on webpage starts counting backwards! then at 0 mins its backup.

 

 

 

webpage has us online but we are not.

 

 

Edit: have to pop out now but counter going forward now and still showing us in there when we are not. Guessing you reset it the time before when it Did come back up.

 

 

 

Connect via ip has server offline and not showing in the MP list.

 

 

 

 

Weird!

 

 

 

:)

Hi. No, just small technical issue on the server machine. Now everything's fine.

+2 Please continue to fix and update the server between releases of modules, eekz. BS is looking kinda neglected, and for a while.
