    Exclamation *Rescheduled* ANZAC EVENT!!!!! Sunday, May 14, 2023: 1100 NZST/0900 AEST

    *Rescheduled* ANZAC EVENT!!!!! Sunday, May 14, 2023: 1100 NZST/0900 AEST

    Due to problems with the recent 5.036 update and logging into servers, the ANZAC Event has been postponed for a week. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    NOTE: This is Polak’s excellent Blitz Over Southampton mission with a few small tweaks to address some suggestions re planesets and spawning. Thanks, Polak!!!

    In honour of our Aussie and Kiwi friends, we are altering the event time significantly to afford them a bit more beauty sleep – which we all know they badly need.

    Not for the faint-hearted! Lots of action for both sides. Don’t lollygag about warming up your engines – pull your thumbs out and GO!!!

    Note: change of location to Team Fusion #3 server. (We had some technical difficulties on the ATAG server. The date/time and mission (Raid Over Southampton) remain the same! See you there!!!

    Sundays are the only weekend day that works for me with my typical gig/travel schedule. However this Sunday I'll be flying back from a gig in LA, so once again I'm unable to join.

    It may benefit others too if event days were staggered between Sat and Sun in the future.

    I'm in, any chance I get.

    Enjoy

    This is Sunday morning for our Aussie and Kiwi friends, early evening on Saturday night for us Torontonians - which likely does not fit well with your gigs, either. It's difficult to find an optimum day/time for a global event. We'll keep working at it by changing weekdays and times to hopefully meet the majority's schedule while also attempting to match up with those in other corners of the world. If only the Earth were flat! LOL

    That is 2 AM my time…
    No matter how I try to turn them, it seems that for me the notions of 2AM, awake, and sober only combine in pairs:
    - if I am awake and sober, then it is not 2AM
    - if it is 2AM and I am awake, then I am not sober
    - if it is 2AM and I am sober, then I am asleep
