    The Blitz Begins! - TFS Livestream Sept 5 2100 GMT

    Hi All,

    September 7th marks the 80th anniversary of one of the hardest days of the Battle of Britain.

    The beginning of the Blitz!

    Given that date is not on the weekend when most players are able to play en masse, we are hoping to see as many players possible in the air, dogfighting and bombing mission specific targets.

    This is not a co-ordinated event as such, we are looking at that for next weekend. Just join in, wing check the current mission, and or just get stuck in.

    We will be using the ATAG Allies and Axis Blitz server.

    The server has a max no. of 83 players.

    Ideally it would be great for those flying for the Luftwaffe or Regia Aeronautica to outnumber the RAF players, to give those flying RAF some semblance of the pressure the real pilots had facing numerically superior numbers and for the Luftwaffe, the gamble of how long one stayed over England before need to return due to lack of fuel.

    For those who can, wing up on comms vie our Teamspeak channel.

    Address: 104.153.108.10
    Password: calais (note all lower case)

    TFS's Pattle will be livestreaming this event on our Youtube channel.

    If you are not already a subscriber, now is the time to hit the subscribe button.

    We hope to see as much action as possible in the air between mid channel and London outskirts, or if the Isle of white map is up, over the island and Southhampton.

    We would appreciate if players refrained from hitting Blue airfields aka 'vulching', giving those players a chance to get in the air and over to the English Coast and beyond to re create the action above hot English skies!

    Look forward to seeing you there.

    This looks interesting. I've flown the sim mainly offline, with a few forays solo online, but would love to try this. Have downloaded Teamspeak but, have never used it. Are you open to an online beginner having a crack at things? If so, I'll be getting up early (I'm in Melbourne, Australia) and popping in to see what's what.

    Would be great to have you join mate. There will be players more than will to wing up with you, including myself.

    You can be my Livestream wingman!

    Cheers,

    The date in the headline of the post is different from the date in the text. I assume that the 7th Sept is correct....?

    Re: The Blitz Begins! - TFS Livestream Sept 5 2100 GMT

    Thanks to everyone that were able to join our livestream today, and or fly in the event.

    It was an outstanding turnout by the community, resulting in the Allied and Axis server at the 83 player capacity!

    We will be running a similar event next weekend to commemorate the 15th September, 1940 battles over Southhampton.

    Look forward to seeing everyone there.

    If you missed today's livestream, it will be available shortly.

    Apologies for the sound issues at the start. When watching the livestream, go to the 24 minute mark and enjoy.

    It was great to have you join us, bubbadeluxe. I admired your “can do” approach as you worked through a couple of technical issues on your PC to get yourself up and running online. Your decision to spawn in at Eastchurch to give yourself time to gain some altitude showed real savvy that we rarely see in new players.

    Looking forward to winging up with you soon.

    Thanks Snapper, appreciate your generosity. Unfortunately the height didn't save me from getting clobbered in the last minute of that session. I'm still miffed about that (LOL)... and the fact that I committed the cardinal sin in the next session of getting so excited at actually getting shots on a Ju88 that I forgot to check my 6...with predictable results. Those 109's... whew... they are wicked indeed! Back to combat manoeuvre school for me. Looking forward to next week. Catch you all then.

    Hey @bubbadeluxe welcome aboard.



    What I love doing is watching the old tactics video's.

    Re: The Blitz Begins! - TFS Livestream Sept 5 2100 GMT

    Was fun flying with ya Pattle! I got a track file but I'm quite a bit backlogged on videos at the moment - I've got way too many tracks and way too much recorded footage and not enough time especially now that zoom university it back in session.

    Zero kills on the day (gotta work on my aim, it's atrocious) but had a real good test of my defensive flying especially when I flew red once the map turned, I was 1v4 against higher 109s, managed to escape, scare one or two of em, and probably took a record for amount of times shot at without getting any critical damage.

    I love CloD! Will be back online on my secondary setup as soon as time allows.
