Her Majesty’s Brave & Honorable Mudspike Air Regiment
During a most stimulating discussion with @EinsteinEP earlier today over a cuppa, we reached the conclusion that there was an era where the pilots were bold, the machines brittle, and the enemy… the Bosch. I propose next weekend we relive these moments of history.
Alternate Version for Those of Us Currently Living in a More Central European Location:
During a rather efficient conversation with EinsteinEP earlier today over Kaffeeklatsch, we arrived at mutual agreement there was a time where the pilots were tough, the machines temperamental, and the enemy… Tommy! (Disclaimer: I know full well what contributions the French had to WW1, but coming up with the alliteration was taking more than 45 seconds.)
Rise of Flight has a selection of three airplanes that are free to play and fly. Let’s group up and play the game like it was meant to be played!
Kill-Joy Note: This isn’t really a fly-in. I have no plans or vision of execution other than a bunch of us piling into a server and figuring out how to play Rise of Flight with each other.
Next weekend! [29 April 2016] —> [01 May 2016]
Times: Whenever people are available? Post whenever sounds agreeable below and we’ll work out some optimum times to gather in Teamspeak and get the ball rolling.
But I’ve Never Played RoF!
Funny thing, NEITHER HAVE I! Hahahahaaaaah! Aahh… but seriously, if anyone has played it before and would like to offer a clinic or a link to educational resources it would be much appreciated.
The game boasts single player as well as adversarial and co-operative multiplayer modes. I’m sure we could take advantage of either MP mode.

Proposed Mustering Times:
Saturday, 30 Apr @ 1600 UTC
Saturday, 30 Apr @ 2100 UTC
Sunday, 01 May @ 1600 UTC
Calculated these times such that we have two opportunities where West & East Coast US plus our European friends are all awake at sane hours, and one more towards those living in the states.
Naturally, If anyone would like to propose other times or add times, have at it!
Server / Missions
The in-game browser would seem to indicate hosting a game shouldn’t be too hard, and it seems like there’s prebuilt missions that would probably occupy our time while we figure out what’s going on. If anyone’s around Friday afternoon/evening it would probably be a good idea to test connectivity for multiple people.
