  • Origins 2019 Games Schedule

    Event registration for Origins 2019 is live starting today! Below you will find a list of our favorite games, at least those tied directly to this and our sister forum... They are organized by day and time and are grouped under the aegis of the different groups running the games this year - since there are three different groups/places where you can get your 'fix' this year, make sure you know where your appropriate game is taking place. It would be a shame to show up at the wrong place for the right game, or vice versa... I have listed the event registration number at the end of each entry to help you register for your potential game(s). To be safe, make sure the title of the game you want matches the event number - sometimes the Origins organizers have a glitch and numbers don't match. When in doubt, use the title of the game

    Glad I could muddy the water! The best planes at diving would take no damage. The worst at diving take an A while the in-between take a B?

    As long as you fly the K-4s as E variants, fine. The K-4 maneuver deck is too fast for early fighters. The K-4 pilots can zoom through the other fighters,

    Dornier 17 & Ju 88 Listed in Squadron Packs on Ares Website

    If you do not mind them looking a little odd, you could play them in games using the Messerschmitt Bf.109E statistics (in place of their late war statistics)

    Battle of Britain, 1940.
    The Germans were flying the E version of the Bf.109, anything from the -3 to the -7 (348 mph-ish, depending on variant).
