    Asia, NZ, AUS monthly gathering -any interest?

    G'day fellow Aussies, kiwis and Asian friends,

    As we all know the ATAG servers can be pretty quiet in our time zones in pm hours (ie after dinner),especially during the week. In my case I now do most of my flying early in the mornings when the servers are pretty full. But thats not helping our situation and if everyone in our time zones did what I am doing the servers would be even quieter. So I've been trying to think about ways to make our pm experience a bit more like the uk/euro pm experience. For those who haven't flown on a near full server it's a very different experience than flying on the server with only a handful of flyers.

    I know there's a reasonable number of us (Asians,Kiwis and Aussies) playing COD and I'm wondering if there would be any interest in trying to get us all together flying once per month? This might be useful for a couple of reasons as it might give us a good idea of how many of us there are in our time zones and maybe start to generate a critical mass of pm players in our time zones. Maybe.....

    So what I was thinking - if there was interest - was to select a time (maybe the second Sunday of each month from 1800 -2300 sydney time as an initial suggestion) and see how many of us can make it for an hour or 3 during this time. No need to sign up or do anything special other than to try and make it.

    Sunday night would also possibly give us some uk/euro/Russian Sunday day flyers to fly with as well and we might get a reasonably full server as a result. Another option might be to pick a mid week night/time.

    It's possible that this might have been tried before -if so, can any of the blokes who have been here for a while and maybe tried this before let us know what happened when it was tried before?

    Anyway just putting this out there to see if there's any interest. If there is then the next step will be to settle on a night/time.

    Ezzie

    Our group (XVII. Fliegerkorps) are mostly euro, but we do often keep very late hours. I've posted a link to your thread on our own forums, so our group knows about it. Just let us know the times and we'll do our best to join in.

    Good idea mate, I generally only fly on weekend mornings now for the same reasons.

    I work funny hours which change from week to week so no matter what time is set in advance I cant guarantee regular attendance, however, if I am available on any given set date/time I will do my very best to attend.

    Good luck, would love to see this kick off.

    Good initiative Ezzie. I would certainly like to join in shiftwork permitting. Away from home until the 14th of Sept. I have some good maps I have made that we could use for co-op style missions if there is any interest.

    Hi Ezzie, a good idea, I would be interested, I am located in Queensland so 1800-2300 hours one Sunday evening a month would suit me fine.

    Re: Asia, NZ, AUS monthly gathering -any interest?

    Thanks everyone -looks like we got a good amount of interest. I had a look at the server stats last night (being Sunday night down here) and there was ~30 people playing. So if we bring another 10+ ish that will start to be a nicely populated server in our pm time zone.

    Re date. How would Sunday 2weeks (21 Sep) from now be for everyone? If its as good as any then how bout we settle on that day and see how we go?

    Like I said in the OP no need to sign up and all you have to do is to try and make it sometime between 1800 - 2300 sydney time. This time should allow those east and west of sydney (NZ, WA etc) and north /south to get some time at a reasonable hour.

    Depending on how this goes we could maybe see what Torrian has to offer re his co-op if he's still willing at a later date to run those.

    Thanks for your interest thus far.

    Re: Asia, NZ, AUS monthly gathering -any interest?

    Look fwd to seeing u online Scream.

    I flew il-2 pretty much daily / weekly offline for ~10 years and never thought to give online flying a try. But I took the plunge with COD earlier this year and found online flying to be excellent experience - well worth giving it a go. For some reason the adrenaline really flows when flying online against other humans in a way it never does when shooting AI flown aircraft or being shot at by AI aircraft. Be an interesting topic to study and find out why this is physiologically/psychologically but I don't think I'm smart enough to figure it out.

    G'day Blue ,

    This never really got going. I had to travel so was unable to attend the first one and then mission building took up most of my COD time so I wasn't playing during week nights.

    As more kiwi / Aussie / Asian / Indian players get onboard with COD then mid week nightime flying might gather momentum.

    Re: Asia, NZ, AUS monthly gathering -any interest?

    Bump.

    Silent and I were discussing low numbers on the server tonight as there usually are at those sort of times. We got to talking about how an event might bring up a bit of interest and then I remembered seeing this thread. As there's been a bit of an influx of new Aussie players especially over the past year, we were wondering if taking a look at this again might be an idea.

    Any interested?

    I’m interested but 2030hrs more suitable for me. Weekends suit better.
    Pity we don’t have an Aussie related map. Papua for example. Be nice with the P40 and Beau later on.of course then we need some Japanese vehicles lol.Ahh jungle fighting in the Pacific. Now I bet that would draw a crowd.

    Re: Asia, NZ, AUS monthly gathering -any interest?

    Cool to see we have people interested. What I might do is see what times people are good for and on what days, then set a date from there. Currently thinking about Friday evenings AUS/NZ time. What do people think is a good interval - fortnightly perhaps?

    Also this isn't intended to be an organised event - just a named time where people try to turn up and give the server numbers a bit of a boost, hopefully giving some of us Antipodean fliers a bit of a chance to experience a more full server than there usually is during Australasian evenings.

    Good to see this being talked about again - thanks kiwi. Mid week is tricky to find time especially with football season now underway. Sunday night is the best night for me but will see what i can do if another day is selected.

    Oh, that would be fine to meet a lot of you guys when we European guys at FG28 have our regular Sunday morning flights 9-13 CET. Is sometimes a little bit empty on the server, especially in the beginning.

    As Kayo said, the Euro Sunday morning would probably attract a good few players from the civilised side of the world also. The old SOW would see players turning out a 6AM if something was on.

    Re: Asia, NZ, AUS monthly gathering -any interest?

    Could have sworn I had put the announcement out

    My apologies for the short notice - that aside, the first get-together will be held on 0800 Sunday 8 April UTC. (2000 NZ time, 1800 Sydney time, 1730 Adelaide time, 1600 Perth time)

    This may be a little on the early side but this is probably going to run for 3-odd hours so don't be worried if you can't make the start.

    Also, there won't be any formal structure to the way this is run but you are welcome to get raids going to spice up the evening.

    Please spread the word on Teamspeak and elsewhere to anyone else who might want to come along and fill the skies. See you all there
