I’d just like to point out that despite our ‘anarchy’ that we’ve just been recognised as being a very well organised and valued squad in the Tactical DCS campaign that we’ve just completed on Tuesday nights.
We may scan the forum, but equally you guys never use Discord, we don’t use TS as we don’t need to. Still not sure of the value of paying for something that we get for free.
We don’t just train experienced pilots but people who migrate to DCS multiplayer generally already know how to fly the aircraft. We then get them up to speed with systems and things that we do. However, that changes depending on aircraft. There is far more complexity to what we’re doing that was ever present in something like Cliffs. There’s no point in us putting someone off by getting them to fly circuits for the sake of it. We invite people to join us for a few nights, see if they enjoy it and if we all get along if it’s a yes on both counts we ask if they’re interested in joining us.
Monday nights is now DCS WW2 with our Liberation Campaign. Thursday nights is modern Liberation Campaign on the Persian Gulf map. Sunday we do a mix. This weekend we’re going to re-run Osprey’s “Charlie Don’t Surf” Huey mission to test out the new multi-crew implementation.
Please don’t make out that we’re some kind of poor relation. What we’re doing may not be the same as the EAF51 guys but we’re doing well and we’re enjoying our time online. We’re an anarcho-syndicalist commune we take it in turns to sort of act as an Executive Officer for the week, but all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified as a special bi-weekly meeting by a simple majority in the case of internal affairs but a 2/3 majority in the case of more major affairs.
Supreme Executive Power derives from a mandate from the masses not some farcical aquatic ceremony! You can’t expect to wield Supreme Executive Power just cos some watery tart threw a sword at you!
