Sunday Flying Circus Furball

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I would like to make a suggestion.

 

OG, I think it would help to list your server at the website barans.ru. Yesterday there were only a handful of us four of us most of the time (I think we capped at six), when in general we have 12+ players. In good weekends, we get close to 20 players. People, me included, check the barans website all the time to see if there is people flying, especially during event hours. It is easy, available to all and you just have to click a link. Plus, you get to see your ping. Sometimes I login earlier just because I see people there, and one people bring another and so on so forth. During the first weeks of aircraft release, I often login when I see people in the server during week days. In my opinion, this is why we were having good numbers during all these Sundays.

 

Just my 2 cents. Great work guys.

It's hard to look at a computer screen when it is so nice outside.

 

Turn the screen brightness up ;)

Can't see any reason for not doing this, I check it for RoF all the time.

What action do you take if you find no-one connected?

 

Plus, you get to see your ping.

 

Surely any server worthy of the description gives you that information anyway.

Well, some servers display pings every 5 minutes or so.. which get a bit annoying.

 

Yes I imagine it certainly would be.

If I intend to fly and there is no one there, I will login in the hopes that people will see me there and join the fray. It happens often.

 

I know how you think, but I agree to disagree. Discord and such has its purposes and works great for squadrons and a group of friends, but if a server relies only on these things, it will alienate anyone that is not willing to join the 'club' so to speak or that likes to check things instead of receiving messages or warnings. In my opinion, if Flying Circus is to survive, it needs a clear and broad way to convey to people that there are players flying at a given server. As we see in ROF, NFF is always populated because we can see when there is people flying there. I many times went there alone and five, ten minutes later someone showed up, and then another, and another, until we have a good crowd flying together.

 

Like I said, it is my 2 cents. A server like WOL can survive without it, but it became staple in BOX for years and was listed there for years.

So you'll join the server regardless of what the useful Barans site tells you. It's good to have that clarified, although it does beg a rather obvious question.

 

if Flying Circus is to survive, it needs a clear and broad way to convey to people that there are players flying at a given server.

 

Then I'm sure you'll be gratified to know that has been implemented already as part of the multiplayer server list. Any committed player should have no difficulty finding it.

Thanks for putting this together! Was my first Flying Circus Multiplayer experience, and as such taught me that despite a couple of kills I don't do engine management in the Spad as well as I thought I did!...at least not when the adrenaline kicks in...looking forward to next Sunday after a week of diving  practice!

Sorry about dropping out tonight - my Edtracker is playing up in the vertical for some reason.

 

I may give up on this for a bit, see if they sort the map out and maybe invest in VR, but simply not worth the outlay for now.

 

Have fun guys.

Look on the server list Sundays for flyers on Flying Circus servers after 1900 GMT. 

 

This event was previously hosted on the Flying Circus Flugpark and has generally continued to be a weekly gathering place on Sundays as the community grows.   Includes a two seater photo recon mission over active combat zone.

I had a lot of fun for the hour or two I was on.  Had a couple good fights.  Ran away from @SeaW0lf in his DR1 when I realized I was in over my head on that one 😄

 

I had a good laugh at the server 😀 But I love the Dolphin as well. She's a good ride when you have altitude advantage.

Not at the same time....but there was a solid 25-30 from 1700-2100.  Lots of returning vets as well as some newer players trying multiplayer.

Bit of a tough one for me, I didn't get involved in the action very much and I lost a streak I was trying to cultivate. But, that's just me. The silver lining is I saw some AMAZING scenes as the server filled up...at one point I counted what must have been at least 30-35 aircraft on my screen at once, all seen from a distance...20+ were involved in a huge layered furball stretching from 2000m right down to ground level. Simply amazing to see.
