    Default Play by PM game: Dogfight 3 vs. 3 - Finished

    Hello dear community members,

    as previously announced, I am going to offer a play by PM game.

    • Duration: 10 rounds, minimum 1 round per 2 days
    • Gaming surface: 90*90 cm (plain grass mat for better recognisability).
    • Rules complexity: Advanced rules with altitude (flying higher) and explosions (causes only half of the planes max. damage, rounded up).
    • Procedure: The participants can choose a plane and their starting position. Starting altitude is 3. The planes are marked with a name sign, the actual altitude and height markers. Every player dispatches me a PM with its three maneuvers in the format "R[round number]:[maneuver number 1],[maneuver number 2],[maneuver number 3]" for the next round (e.g. R4:1,2,4). I recommend to use the WoG-Mates-Fold-V3 of the file section for planning the maneuvers (https://www.wingsofwar.org/forums/do...o=file&id=2366). If all maneuvers have arrived, I post aerial view images for every phase of the round, plus additional atmospheric images.
    • Shooting phase: I manage the damage, and inform the players about secret damage. If there are multiple targets, I ask the player which one should be chosen.
    • Central powers start from the east side, Entente from the west.
    • Winning conditions: The side with the highest score wins. Each team scores 1 point for each enemy aircraft gone out of the gaming field, 2 points for every enemy airplane shot down and -1 for each of its own airplanes shot down.


    The participants so far (please post in this thread, if you want to participate and don't sent a PM):

    Fokker Dr. I:
    MvR (olive-red): Marechallannes
    LvR (olive-yellow): Sauerkraut
    Weiss (olive-white): Graugans

    Sopwith Camel:
    Barker (white stripes): Teaticket
    Ellwood (red hearts): camelbeagel
    Brown (red-white elevator): flash

    The resolution will be better and on the last game we used inverted markers for better visibility.

    I've found when the Red Baron is on the table he draws more than his share of attention!

    Alternatively I can offer Kirstein, Jacobs, or Kempf. Or the real false Red Baron.

    No one ready to jump in the seat of a Fokker? It's a fun game and a good opportunity to try the altitude rules. You don't have to care about any rules - just fly - all other things like considering special damage and rules like tailing and aiming are managed by me.

    Ausgezeichnet!

    Hm there are 3 points difference to the disadvantage of the central powers. If all participants agree we could grant MvR a special ability for that amount.

    I will set up the battlefield this evening. As mentioned above, the Central powers enter from the east and the Entête from the west side.

    Everyone can already sent me an PM with the desired starting position (top/middle/bottom) within the starting area and his heading (e.g. E-NE, or W, or SW, etc.).

    No need for an ace ability.

    (..would combine single arm -5 and Acrobatic pilot + 8 if there are 3 spare points. )

    Starting position sent.

    The tokens are printed, the battlefield is set up and five players have sent their starting positions. One left to begin.

    Oh and I recognized that I doesn't own Stacked, but Brown.

    And I forgot to mention a house rule on the explosion card: an explosion doesn't destroy immediately the plane, but causes the half of the base damage points of the plane, rounded up. E.g. a plane with damage 15 gets 8 damage points on an explosion card.

    I will post the pictures here, if the resolution is acceptable. The example photo above was copied out of a messenger post and has an inferior resolution. The actual photos for our game should have a better quality.

    Teaticket and camelbeagel as well as Graugans and Marechallennes are heading straight to the approaching enemies.

    Flash seems to try to outflank the Krauts. Sauerkraut turns left to accompany his wingmen.

    That's a textbook example of formation flying by Teaticket and camelbeagel! RFC exercise at its best.

    Graugans and Marechallennes strictly follow Boelkes Dicta - gain altitude and gain it first! Sauerkraut stays under his comrades and flies in Browns direction. There are some fancy maneuvers beginning!

    Teaticket and camelbeagel don't break the formation. Graugans tries to get out of Ellwood's firing arc while spreading a salvo, but both planes seem to take some damage.

    Marechallennes doesn't leave his course, while flash turns left to confront the dreaded ace. Sauerkraut also pulls up, to cover his flight leader.
