S! All,

Friendly reminder, Friday is June 1, and June starts our DCS Skies of Normandy Leaderboard contest!

So, get your armorers and riggers moving, and get your ship ready to fly. A little practice in the meanwhile wouldn't hurt!

We're rolling back the leaderboard, and looking for the highest scoring pilots for the month of June on the Continent (Normandy). We have a great map, and excellent missions built in for both Axis and Allies! Remember to read the scoring rules posted here, or in the server. It should have a bearing on your tactics! ;-).

Contest begins 12:01 June 1, ends 23:59 June 30. Winner will receive a free customized WWII skin of their choosing, and unlimited bragging rights!

Raven and I have been tuning and prepping the server, and the missions and scripts are running great! We're flying the latest DCS 2.5.2 Open Beta, so patch up. We'll try to keep 24/7 availability as much as possible, and notify here if issues arise.

S! See you in the Skies. :RAFSalute:

Scoring info:
- 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.

Its on! DCS Leaderboard contest

Its On!

The invasion is on! Get over to the continent and help out. Help the allies expand the beach-head, or defend the occupation forces. The search for the highest scoring pilot of the first month of the invasion has begun.

Intel officers around the services are ready and waiting for your debriefs, and ready to keep score! (Server is up, and leaderboard is ready! )

Good Hunting Chaps!

From the allied commanding officer: (June 6, 1944) General Dwight D. Eisenhower: ... ofdday.htm

Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force:

You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months.

The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.

In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped, and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944. Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned. The free men of the world are marching together to victory.

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory.

Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.
