I'm not knocking  this idea at all, and I don't want to re-visit the whole "which one is better" debate but I will point this out.  Just as your Sunday event competes with Vintage Mission in ROF for players, the only other weekly get together in ROF is the Thursday night fly-in hosted by JG1 and US103.  

 

  you might want to consider another night.

hi to be honest it did occur to me , but thursday night was the best night, for me, personally, thats why i chose it, As for ROF, the opionin i have is ROF is a long established game with many events of many different nights of the week, but FC only has 1 event, and now hopefully 2 events a week. the FC events are 6 hours long, informal drop in drop out event, made this way so people can attend other events and if they feel like it, join FC events later, please remember not all FC players attend ROF events.

I think I'll reset the campaign today before the event. This should make sure there's enough planes for everyone at the front airfield. As the campaign advances, one of the sides might find itself forced to fly from further back due to depleted front airfields. Typically not an issue in a WWII setting, I have my doubts on how this would work for WWI given the slower speeds. We'll see as we go...

Yes people showed, for the first 3 1/2 hours, i personally say max of 13 players at one time , but checked the stats on Coconuts site And shows 15 players where in one mission and 9 players online in the mission after that one, but they are total scores, average was 8 - 10 for most of the first half of the event, the lowest was 3 per side. i know at one time in the night we had 4 - 5 on each side , with each side being on its own voice channel, one axis, one allied, on the Irregulars discord channel.

 

i am thinking for having a second agreed time for the US side of the pond to start up, as i think people may be loging in US times and no one online the leaving, and everyone is doing the same thing.

 

Thank you to all for flying last night , hope you all had fun and a good time, i sure did, it was great guys thanks. i have two shortish videos thats i will be uploading to a screenshot and recording thread of the Clash of the Coconuts, event.

Never would have bought fc realizing how bad the numbers were, I mean at least on rof when I left you could find 4 or 5 players at any given time, this is just a whole new level [edited]

I'll try to make this sometime though I guess.

Gotta hold out for the map and a 2-seater for each side and hope somebody puts up a server that gives anything better than air-quake crap.

Without a map and with a limited planeset it's no wonder that people bail early.

 

There's also no classic dogfight to be had at the moment, as the Dr.I is not really a match for the Camel. All of this will (hopefully) change before release.

It didn't help that some genius thought holding back the 2-seaters until last would be a good idea. Probably down to 'technical limitations' or something I guess.

Multi-crew planes have pretty much always come last in this project (i.e., BoS), because they require more time for completion. It's nothing to do with technical limitations.

I looked for your server this early morning (01:00 GMT) but I could not find it. Then I went to NFF in ROF (I saw people at the barans.ru site). Is the server up just for the event and then you taking it off the internet?

 

What would help to bring people to the server is to list the server on the website barans.ru. It is the only effective / broad way to tell people that players are flying on the server. Often I go to J5 to fly alone and people show up (they see that I'm flying there). On the Sunday’s events, I check the J5 at barans.ru to see when people start to show up for me to set my rig and go there. Sometimes I show up by myself on Sundays and people slowly start to chime in. The same happens at NFF, the most popular server in ROF, and when the Thursday and Sunday events happen there as well. It is not by chance I imagine.

 

It is just my 2 cents. I'll try to show up next Friday if the event is happening there.
