there might be a need for two foxes in the future?         and Mig-3 hounds seem to be a reasonable counter for a lone 410 fox     

 

i can mention here, without fear of ridicule because i'm among friends, that hounding it in an XFL was a poor choice           

 

although i did snipe you once from far away, purely by luck       high point of the whole night for me!

 

Ram the Leader generated some genuine laughs        gosh, B-17s are kinda tanky, aren't they?        but the B-26 is more fun and almost equally dangerous 

 

which got me thinking about a human flight of all B-26s against a bot team a couple of tiers higher        wanna try that next SNL?        dig 'em out and dust them off!

it was fun but yeah you cant have altitude fighters on the hounds side, it removes any chance of a single guy being able to fight.  i like the idea of all b-26 lol another good idea would be to do axis and allies but only lights or only MR or only heavies.


If at first you don't succeed, give up loser, you suck. or man up, get better and win

she was still knocked out on oxy     i was able to snag the last of the mission pilots by spamming the Beaufighter and the Beaufort F

 

i'll see you guys next weekend!

SNL is back from summer hiatus!      

 

we'll run the usual h2h...  and Bomber Escorts, trying to trick sniper bot GAs into rising up to meet up again!    should be fun...   this week will feature the Frenchie NC 1070   

 

then more exploratory surgery on Ram the Leader       

 

maybe the Leader will be a tier down, or maybe with fewer gunners    or maybe altitude-restricted to 300 feet (100 meters) as to give MRs a chance to bomb kill

 

all or at least some of those ideas might even the score       LMG, think of a great GA to fly as your team's leader

 

9:30 pm EDT Saturday       get NA's discord working before you join, please       we'll look for you in Flight 2

There's not many options, you know? :trollface:

what would be a good strategy for protecting the leader from rammers?       

 

continuous overhead figure 8s?        stall speed ck-blocks on the leaders' tail end?       stacked defenders directly overhead, with excellent communication?       

 

 

should the leaders have to fly toward each other from opposite ends in a straight line, and try to ram each other in the middle, then continue on until the game wall turns you around?

 

that way, at the midpoint, rammers could decide to turn into defenders, if your team wants to flood the zone      or vice versa

 

 

how about every plane the same, at least the same class       except the leaders, who would fly the same different class

Plane selection is key.

5.5 hours until SNL's first flight out tonight          some low tier h2h first, before the superpilots arrive       then some cooperative PvE with high tier GAs, then comes Ram the Leaders 

 

double check that your Discord is working, please      and push-to-talk is a kindness to others, btw

I had that happen, twice. Kinda why I never made a second "GAA Guide". On more positive news, I recorded a couple matches and will be uploading the videos throughout the week, including a Ram the Rabbit run from my Blenheim :popcorn:

I am annoyed the sound of my own voice.  I think that's fairly normal tho.  Could that be why Jonny, Nue and LMG dont mess around on voice?

Where I live its a bit too noisy and unstable for me to use voice chat. That and I don't have a proper headset, so I have no idea how bad my voice would sound :hiding:

Can't do it, I use a Electrolayrnx speech aid. Would need a third hand, plus the sound could send Ace over the edge and get him drinking again. :trollface:
