Currently in 0.5.0, when flight is created, the flight leader (player who created the flight) determines when the flight is ready to enter battle.  This is fine if one of your wing men want to opt out a battle but remain in the flight, the wing leader can enter battle minus one wing man.  However, if the flight leader needs to take a break, the wing men are stuck waiting for the flight leaders return.

The suggestion is to add the ability for the current flight leader to assign "Flight Leader" to another player in the flight so they can continue playing without having to wait for the flight leader to return.

I'd like to see this worked out and coded in Tanks first - but it would be a nice feature. The current flight system is so buggy they should just get what we have working properly and fully, which hasn't since it was introduced over six months ago.

It may be easier to code this for us first sense they are working on it anyhow. Just a thought. I do agree this is needed

Definitely a +1 in this!

Or, at the very least, the ability for the flight leader to send the two wingmen into battle without him having to go.  Of course, that involves changing the mechanic (that I suggested previously being changed) about whatever plane the flight leader is looking at as being his ready plane.

I prefer not to initiate a flight for this reason.  I like to take occasional breaks from battles.  Not to mention the coffee effect (or some other quality adult beverages).

I agree, and I agree - great idea.
Thanks for posting !
