Normandy Leaderboard Contest!!! JUNE 2018 !=== WWII Server ===! ITS A TIE!!

S! All,

To commemorate the 74th anniversary of the Normandy Landings, !=== WWII Server ===! will be hosting a Leaderboard contest for the month of June!
We're rolling back the scores and looking for the top scoring pilot for the month of June!

Our server is running DCS 2.5.1 Open Beta, so get geared up and strap in for a month of battle in the bocage!

Here are the rules and scoring logic, so listen up!
- RAF662 WWII server is a gentlemanly place, so, please no strafing landed pilots. Also, please allow adversaries time to Take Off or Land, so no vulching over enemy AF's. Do not attack in the pattern as well. It just makes for more fun all around and less ruffled feathers, and less Kicks for us admins. (now the AI, mind you, they have a will of their own, so watch for them, LOL)
- The map has several task missions on both sides, which can be activated in the F10, sub menus. These include fuel and ammo depots to shoot up, B17's to escort, airfields to attack, guns to silence, comms towers to destroy, convoys to stop, , ships to sink, etc. And points can be scored for destroying these objects, especially trucks, tanks and ships and planes. After you activate one of these tasks in the f10 menu, check the mission map for markers and be sure to turn on the tags. Our intel guys have marked the objectives on the map for you to find them!
- Watch out against being captured, you could end up in a Luft-Stalag, or Allied prison for a while, Raven's cooked up something very unique for those forced down behind the lines. LOL

- Scoring can be checked in game by using -? in chat to see the available commands.
For example entering -stats into the chat window will list your personal stats, and -lb will list the top 10 pilots on the leaderboard.
For the full leaderboard and further intel, visit us here on often!

- Scoring rules: Pilots are scored and ranked in real-time. The scoring system strongly favors pilots who score and return home safely.
- Your AC is expendable, YOU ARE NOT! So plan well, and live to fight another day! Deaths really hurt you, so avoid them. Kinda like in real life, eh? ;-).

Scoring is as follows:
- air kills count 1 for 1,
- ground kills count 10 for 1 (10 ground units destroyed = 1 air kill)
- ship kills count 1 for 4 (1 ship = 4 air kills)
- sorties (successful return landing from flight) count 5 for 1 (5 landings = 1 air kill)
- friendly kills will cost you -3 air kills! (so be sure before you fire)
- Total points above are then divided by total deaths. Death = actual pilot death. Bailouts are neutral.
If you don't die bailouts don't count against you. We presume you'll be picked up by friendly forces roaming Normandy and be returned to the fight on your side.

Winner gets an all-expense paid trip to Normandy...just kidding!... Winner gets universal bragging rights AND...
....a free customized Champion's skin. I'll get my paint gun out, and provide a customized skin using the base skin of your choice, and complete it with your name, rank, kill marks and squadron insignia of your choosing!

Judges will be Myself and Raven...all rulings are final, I'm a non-attorney spokes-person, etc, etc, and so forth...

:RAFSalute: S! and Good Hunting Chaps!

Since W.C.'s caught word that I was flying offensive combat over the continent,... and out scoring a lot of our best, younger and not as good looking pilots too, I might add. :o

For the sake of morale, he's banished me to flying armed-recon only. I'll have you know, I do intend to protect myself whilst doing so.
But now's the chance, I'm off offensive ops having set the tone.

Come on you lot, you better catch my score. And be quick about it. I already have my own AC painter ;-))
RAF Pilots I expect a good show!

The gauntlets been tossed! ;)

Ok, now we're getting somewhere! The competition is starting to heat up.
Slacks' taken the lead, with a 12/0 showing in just under 1 hr's work. Now that's the kinda pilot efficiency we need! But he's not outta reach by any means. You guys just gotta take some risks out there! Remember a boat is worth 4 kills! (hint). But slow and steady (and returning to base) can win this race too! There's lots of points to be scored in shootin up ground targets too!
Keep battling out there!

S! All, one day left in the competition. The scoring will end at midnight (eastern time) sat night! Right now there are at least 3-4 pilots in contention, with great records. And several who can move up very quickly with a little good shooting. Those with 0 or 1 kills can greatly jump their scores quickly with each additional kill and no deaths! If you think you can rest on your kills and not fly, or take no more risks.. well, pilots are an aggressive breed. I'd venture a bet there's a pilot below you on the ranking list who thinks otherwise! ;-).

Come on guys pour on the coals!

Our first ever leaderboard contest is now complete and it is a tie! Coming from behind late in the final day SLACK has tied it up on TWC_TAIPAN - with both having excellent 14+ point scores, and only one death apiece for the month.

Great flying to you both. Please step forward and post up here on the forums or email for information on how to claim your skins. (Basic idea, choose a base skin of your choice, for example from the user-downloads/skins section of DCS world forums, show me the link, or zip/email me that base skin with instructions on customization - eg. I'll add your name, optional kill marks, and squadron insignia to the skin and return it to you!)

Some additional highlights from the competition:
- SLACK amassed his excellent 14/1 record with only 1.2 hours in the air - wow, great efficiency! Your respective air ministry and ground crew will commend you on effective use of his magesty's resources!
- While Taipan amassed his 13/1 record with only 3+ hrs. The fact that he had 6 sorties (remember 5 = 1 kill) was enough to keep him equal to Slack and end in a tie

- Other leaders (and notes):
- Milo Morbid had the most hours in theater with 14.2
- Milo also had the most ground kills with 123! Nice! A man after my own heart! The mud-boys commend your use of tactical air power!

- Sixpack led air hours with 12.2 (way to go both you and Milo, grizzled veterans, you guys get the Boils on the Butts award for most saddle time! You must be ready for a visit to the happy flak-farm for a well deserved rest!)
- Sixpack also led sorties with 22 - he gets the Boomerang award, we like to see you return from missions! Nice work

- Drifter topped all PVP kills with 4 - he must have a nose for the live blood of the non-AI players! Watch for him guys :-)
- Drifter also topped all total EA kills with 45! - quite a nice junk yard amassed in your wake, unfortunately the death ratio side was not enough to top the leaderboard, but great job destroying enemy AC!

- Ship kills was topped by yours-truely - but I can claim superior intel as a huge asset - planning a ship attack in our map requires careful planning and intel for ingress and egress safety - my intel officer did me proud! LOL.

- Finally the SILKWorm award goes to Sixpack - as he hit the silk 13 times!

Nice work everyone, lots of fun here, and we met some really great online pilots doing this. Stay tuned here for other contests and fun, RAF_Raven and I have several new ideas!

See you in the skys!
