View Full Version : Ghost Skies Resurrection

Hello you all,

As some of you may know, Ghost Skies lost it's webmaster to personal problems, and right in the middle of a critical rebuild. Well, this has left me stranded in the middle of the desert with no water. However, things are looking up.
The new rules are written. The new maps are done (mostly) So Ghost Skies is ready to be built. I have secured the needed webspace, and most importantly, a ladder program has been found that will eliminate a lot of the build.

Unfortunately, the program is more of an expense than I can bear on my own for an immediate purchase. So I am forced to ask for donations to help the league. For two years I have never asked, nor accepted, donations for Ghost Skies. But without the free efforts of a webmaster, I have more of an expense. So I would like to ask anyone and everyone who supports Ghost Skies with their participation, to please support us with a donation.

Once I have accumulated the necessary amount, I will purchase the program, and we will get started installing it and tweaking it for our needs.

If Ghost Skies receives more money than is required for the program, then I will use that money to purchase some swag for giveaways. I need to come up with a logo for Ghost Skies, then I can plaster it on T-shirts, Hats, etc. Give them away to winners of the ladder, and tourneys, etc.

So no matter what your donate, or when, your money will be put to good use. Thanks for reading, I hope to bring you the new Ghost Skies soon!

Just for those of us who dont know, what is ghost skies? I know its a thingy on HL but what IS it?

Ghost Skies is a team vs team Dog FIght competition ladder. Some of the major changes we are making:

Split the competition into two seperate and independant ladders. One will be close to Full Switch settings, Axis vs. Allies, and use historical battle match-ups through a progression of years. The other will be open cockpit, but no externals and limited icons. Plane sets won't be limited, but teams must decide what year to fight in, and only pick a fighter from that year.

That's a very very brief overview. If you have any more specific questions, let me know.

Sounds fun! So if my squad registers we fly in this league? D u get a set amount of deaths available or is it ur dead once and ur out?

Deaths don't really factor in at all. It's a ladder league, not an elimination tournament. (Elim Tournys will be held seperately for prizes. Remember the Double Domination 2v2 for a TIR 3 Pro that GS hosted?) Here is how a match is run: (This is a quick explanation, not official rules) Two teams take off once the Ghost Skies Timer calls go. Within the 45 minute fight the two opposing teams try to shoot each other down as many times as they can, but not get shot down themselves (obviously). You land your plane after your kills to achive max score. The team with the highest score at the timers end wins the match. It is reported, and the database will track your win %. Top 4 teams on each side will fight in the playoffs.

I know that is very broad. I'm just trying to give a brief overview. If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I love talking about the league! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
