RoF Multiplayer 8/11/14

Post by Dukely on Fri Nov 07, 2014 8:04 am

At 20 UTC we have scheduled a multiplayer flight. Join the forum chatbox around that time. We will create a plan and takeoff within 20 mins of the scheduled time.

I'll be watching for you guys. Are we planning to fly the Syndicate or the Wargrounds server? Or just whichever has more people in it?

If there is almost nobody in either of those, it may be best to go Syndicate since I think it has a higher concentration of AIs flying about.

Also... There is a couple guys on a wargamer forum who said they've been wanting to do some multi-player again lately, after a long ROF hiatus, so I informed them of when we were gonna be flying today with an open invitation. If we end up with more than four, we can always create two flights running in tandem. Or have some run the OpFor if we feel the need for proper opposition. Not sure if they'll show up, but they may start doing more MP overall which is good because the server pop is often pretty weak most days.

Well Zebra and I decided early on this venture would be based more on survivability then PvP. Low pop is not necessarily a bad thing as we can still get some fun coop flights against the AI and record some exciting videos.

Most likely we will go Syn and play entente. We will have to see who shows up here in the next few hours. Then we will make a plan, decide what planes and all that once we know what the mission is.

A new mission is just now starting on Syndicate.  I'll look and see what's in it.  

The mission info on Syndicate says each one runs for 12 hours, but I don't think that's the case.  Perhaps they changed it and forgot to update the mission text?



EDIT: Current one has mostly Sopwith Pups (x8). There is also a few Nieuport 17 GBRs (x4) and Nieup 17s (x4).

The Pups are a personal favorite of mine. Dunno if you all have them. They're a bit OP, as Zebra stated, because the devs were very generous with their maximum speed (they were slow). Of course, the devs were also a bit speed generous with Fokker Dr.Is so it's not unique. Not sure when this mission restarts. Says 12hrs but I think they switch much sooner.


There is currently nobody on Syndicate server. That's not a biggie since we're just focusing on Co-op.

Think I gotta +1 named 'Tuna' or 'Hot Tuna', if you're up for growing this band of ne'er-do-wells.

He may join flight or take a bomber.

Alright, if hes still around in a bit. He still have some time before the clock hits 20 UTC. Also if you join the chatbox on the bottom of the main page it might be easier to chat.

We are starting the flight now. If you are reading this you are late, shame on you! Smile
We are flying allied on the Syndicate squadron. Come in and see if we have time to meet up for a flight.

Found an Albatros D.II player a few minutes after you headed out. I got the first shots on him but he reversed the advantage when I lost sight of him. Blew my whole damn rudder off!

Dukely was there for a bit.  We escorted a recon tasked FE over the lines.  Nobody came up to take the bait. It was quite uneventful.  So Dukes headed home and I followed for a bit but turned back for a solo flight over the mud.  

Saw an Albatros down below, shooting at some friendlies (AI?).  I dove on him and got a short poor burst in, but lost sight of him when my Nieuport started stalling when pulling up and around into a turn.  He blew my whole rudder off and wounded me pretty quickly and that was about it.

You must've been around on my second attempt.  Ended about the same way, although I just headed straight into 2 or 3 Albatrosses.
rendeer


I swear.. I cannot fly a Noop worth a damn.  Never been able to.  Even doing a relatively lazy chandelle will put it at stall speed and prolonged turning is out of the question for the same reason.  Feels horribly underpowered to me.  It's much less stable than the Camel in ROF, in my opinion.

So if you see 'ole Nefaro in a Nieuport, you're almost guaranteed a kill. santa


EDIT: There were quite a few people playing this afternoon. Myself and a couple forum buddies were gonna switch over to the Wargrounds server after dinner/family but the damn Master server is down right now so nobody can log in. Booo.

I talked with Zebra last night. I think that was Zebra that blasted your rudder off. Using the *DD* in front of your name helps us know if squad mates are on the server and what side they are on.

Personally I like the Noops.

I like Wargrounds they have some really dynamic missions sometimes.

LOL!  I had one bullet fired.  Yay!

Did you see me flopping around in the sky or were you too far away by then?

I should get some more practice in with the Nieup 17 if we're gonna be flying on Syndicate.  I stalled the thing on every merge. clown

Still.. NW-Wargrounds server has usually been the more popular place to be lately.  I like the later war stuff.  Lots of options regarding planes to fly and objectives to do.  Been doing some Recon and a little bombing on there in 2-seaters lately, with the occasional scout patrol. sunny

There may be a gaggle of people on Wargrounds again tonight (Monday), if it's anything like last week.  There are also three or four people from the Grogheads forum who've just started flying ROF MP again, since I've been mentioning it.

Zebra and I have discussed playing more on Wargrounds. They have more planes and the missions are more dynamic.
