I spend most of my time DCS'ing in Blue flag now ("buddyspike" server) as it provides the best co-op and dynamic experience.
So what side are we choosing now???? (there may be a limit to the type of module you can fly depending on what side you choose)
Blue or imperialist reds ??? DECIDE !!!!!
Its time to join the fight guys. Dynamic map, Capture of bases, farps and cities.
Dynamic map can be found here to see progress and plan objectives http://opblueflag-buddyspike.rhcloud.com/
You don't need to register on their site to play, but it would be nice if you did to open up their forum stuff.
Its not all about jets and A2A, you NEED a co-ordinated effort to clear the skies and protect the transport helicopters to drop troops off and capture area. Therefore you NEED A2A working with A2G working with TRANSPORTS !!!!!
Usually there are very capable GCI's on providing excellent radar cover work
DO IT. DO IT NOW, MUDSPIKE NEEDS TO PUT BOTH FEET IN AND SHOW THE WORLD HOW EINSTEIN CAN NUKE ENTIRE BASES (even if they are friendly)
For best experience, you need but don't have to....
Simple Radio (there is a fix for the viggen)
Work in a co-ordinated group of different packages.
For those that are new to Blue Flag some basics.
1) YOU MUST CHOOSE A SIDE - you do this in the game lobby (where you select aircraft) and in CHAT just type "blue" or "red". This will lock you to either the blue or red side for the duration or that round (about a week) When a new round is started you will be able to choose again. So choose wisely. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SELECT ANY AIRCRAFT TO FLY UNLESS YOU HAVE CHOSEN A SIDE.
2) YOU MUST PROTECT YOUR AIRFRAMES - Buddy spike puts a limit on lives of 4 x Fighter/attack helicopter + an additional 4 x Transport helictopers. This is to encourage teamplay. Lives are reset about every 4 hours. You must land your airframe to not loose a life before rotation of the map (about every 1.5 hours)
E.g. you have lost 4 lives flying fighters. That's ok, you can (if you have the module) have 4 more lives flying transports. or with the combined arms module join a GCI slot (but these are very important and best left to experienced guys)
3) There may be a disparity or players on each side This is ok. Sometimes you may jump online and see 20 people on blue with only 5 people on red. This is OK and part of the Dynamics of the game. This is the time to take as much land as possible. Because guaranteed, whist you are sleeping the tides will turn and the enemy will amass.
**4) Commands to type into chat. "-lives" will tell you how many lives you have left. "-time" will tell you how long until the server restarts.
Please note that when the server restarts it can take up to 5 mins before it will allow people to join.
Anyhow, its time to drag you guys in. You don't need to be professional, just have DCS, a smile and the willingness to not crash in the nearesst mountain or pickle off high yield weaponry whilst still on the runway!!!!
