Tank In Flames WW2 tournament

Post by JG1_Klaiber » Tue Mar 02, 2021 6:00 pm

Hi All,

JG1 (https://jg1.org/) is organizing a new "dead-is-dead" WW2 tournament called Tank In Flames (TIF).

You can check out our official announcement here: https://forum.jg1.org/topic/8732-welcome-to-tif/

Tank In Flames will be run in IL-2 Great Battles.  We're looking to have test missions on Saturday, 27 March and Saturday, 3 April.  We'll start a 4-week campaign phase on Saturday, 10 April 2021.

As a review, "dead-is-dead" means that each player will only have one pilot life per night. If the player is killed, or captured, they are done as a pilot for that mission.  However, all participants will have unlimited lives as tail gunners and tankers.

Official registration for TIF will start on Friday, 5 March 2021 at 11:00AM EST / 4:00PM UTC.  Pilots interested in participating must register.  This is so that we can build fair and even teams.

For your squadron, you can mass register pilots. Just let me know their names, their timezones, and if they'd like to be a pilot, tank driver, or both.

Should you have any questions, let me know.  Looking forward to flying with you all!

-Klaiber

PS: Hope things are great, Shade! :B:

Hey Klaiber!! Nice to see you guys getting stuff organized still! Was thinking about reaching out recently, so we must be on the same page!

To everyone, these events are an absolute blast if you have the time to join in. Highly recommend!

Hey Shade, great to see you're doing well! This project has been a long one to develop, but it's definitely worth it.

And to clarify, despite the name "Tanks In Flames," TIF is an air war primarily. Hence the dead-is-dead rules for pilots.

However, player controlled tanks are necessary to capture territory, hence the unlimited lives as tail gunners and tankers.

Either way, registration is now open: https://forum.jg1.org/topic/8729-tif-20 ... istration/

If you all have any questions, just shoot me a PM or post over on the JG1 boards. I'll try and stop by and visit here too. :)

Another quick update - the tournament map has been posted: https://forum.jg1.org/topic/8643-tif202 ... paign-map/

The plane-set will be late 1944 / early 1945, and will be finalized by representatives from all participating squadrons.

If you're interested, just let us know.

We're still building teams, so no one has been assigned to an in-game side yet. But, definitely let me know if you have any questions. Am more than happy to help. :)
