    Exciting times.

    The ACG Campaign has reignited the fire for me. Hand shaking dogfights that no other sim has given me. Bring on North Africa!

    Pat, im not sure if it can be done or something is already in place but blocking the abilty for non participants to see who is on the TFS Alpha TS channels AND server would really help keep the confidentiality of those wanting to help but not produce videos etc. It may also help control a lot of the external expectations about what testing is about and how its run when people are seeing empty servers in the midst of things but not undertanding the reasons why.

    The last 4.5 beta saw a lot of sniping aimed at the testers in other forums from who was who to who was on and when. I recall some especially mean comments aimed at one of the stalwarts of this group. I have no reason to think it will be any different this time. It would be nice if those taking part this time were not subjected to such negative scrutiny if at all possible. Not everyone has thick skins and noone should have to justify themselves outside or inside the A or B group.

    Regards

    My first stream last time went over like a lead balloon. Second one was better.

    I'd never streamed before. Good thing I'm a giant douche so I'm used to getting sniped.

    Hey Smoke, good to see you back. Seems like you've been away for awhile.


    ( The thumbs up is cuz you are back, not because you were gone for a bit!)

    This will be a closed alpha. All footage will have to be sanctioned by TFS prior to public release.

    Live streaming will most likely fall under this restriction.

    Quite a number of testers will be producing videos.

    There will be no shortage of videos, as well as screenshots being released.
