View Full Version : Ghost Skies is back!

03-06-2006, 12:09 AM


Ghost Skies has returned, and is better than ever! After a lot of work, and some set backs, We are finally able to reopen Ghost Skies for competition. The rules have been completely rewritten. The maps have been completely rebuilt. And the old website was scraped in favor of our new Ladder and Tournament system! Ghost Skies has lots of new things. But it still needs the most important addition.


Ghost Skies is built by players FOR players! Pilots like you! Without the teams, there would be no competition or fun. So, I am here to tell you all I can about GS, and how you can participate.

So, what is Ghost Skies?
GS is a Dog fight ladder league. Teams compete against one another for rank on the ladder, and a chance to participate in the final rounds, and then to win the cycle. But most importantly, GS is an organized, fair way to hone your competitive edge against other good natured squads who share your affinity for competition. And bottom line, it is fun.
Ghost Skies has two ladders.
"Legends" is a full difficulty (minus a couple of items) historically based Axis vs Allies competition. The matches are set in recreated historic battles, with planesets that are as close to historic as we can get them.
You can see the list here: http://www.ghostskies.com/maps/legends/index.htm
Not only do teams fight for themselves, they fight for their side. Red or Blue, see who will win.
"Pyro" is a relaxed setting (Open cockpit), non-historic ladder, where teams compete within a single year-per-week environment, but without restriction to particular planes. Teams compete to fight in a 1 week play-off period at the end of the cycle to see who will be crowned the winner.
Also, Ghost Skies will be hosting a myriad of prize tournaments. Whether they are open to the public, or restricted to just active GS squadrons will depend on the sponsor, but you can be sure that lots of opportunities will be available to win prizes and have fun!

Bottom line, no matter what you want to do, it's all up to you. The more teams that participate, the more fun and challenging it is for everyone. So I would really like you to consider joining us, and make Ghost Skies a popular, exciting place to compete!

If you have any questions, I will check back on this forum, or you can e-mail me at crash@ghostskies.com

ENTER GHOST SKIES HERE (http://www.ghostskies.com)

Ghost Skies announces the Ghost Skies: Brawl! 1v1 competition series! First cycle begins April 14th thru April 28th.

Brawl is a 1v1 competition ladder series that will host various themes for different cycles. This first cycle's theme is Pacific Carriers! Pilots will choose from tailhook fighters and fly best 2 of 3 flights. In order for a kill to count, a pilot must successfully land on the carrier. Brawl is split into two seperate ladders to accomodate sim pilots of different preferences. Best of all, you don't have to be associated with a squadron! Brawl is open to any and all who wish to compete in a 1v1 setting!

Full Brawl! is Full Switch, minus the speedbar for those goofy Japanese dials.

Open Brawl! is Open Cockpit and relaxed settings, letting nothing get in the way of the fight!

No matter what your preference or skill level, you can have fun, and learn a lot in Brawl! So sign up today, and get ready to rumble!

Don't take that the wrong way. I'm just saying we haven't seen him in a long time. I heard he joined the Navy, but I don't know that for certain.

Due to a malicious program being uploaded into the Ghost Skies sever through the forum, GS had to be taken offline a couple of times, and the old forum had to be removed. Unfortunately, we lost all the old forum information, and the start of the newest team vs. team competition cycle was delayed.

Now things have been set straight. We have a new forum up and ready for use. You will have to register to use the new forum. The stats have been reset, and the system is completely ready for use.

So spread the word, set up your matches, and start flying! Good luck!

Your website is still broken.

05-22-2006, 12:31 AM
Yup, the attack went further than we had realized. We had to wipe the databse and upgrade it. We've got it reloaded, but we lost all the "stuff" in the database. So, I have to reload all the ladders and such.

All user and squad accounts were part of the "stuff", so people will have to register once again.

A ... "not-so-kind" individual decided to exploit my generosity by uploading malicious scripts into the Ghost Skies server. (They uploaded them through the avatar upload on our old forum) That caused all kinds of havok with the Ghost Skies website and server, and took several months to fix. But now everything is secure, and Ghost Skies is back!

Unfortunately, we had to wipe our database tables clean. So all accounts and stats were lost. So that requires everyone to sign up to the website AND the forum once again. (We had to purchase a new, secure forum)

"Legends" (Full Difficulty) and "Pyro" (Relaxed settings) competition both begin again on July 21st! Hope to see you there!

this is all great news. Please grab your squads and get on some action.

Its really great for improving your team work and making some nice freinds in the IL2 network.

Freindly matches are easy enough if you want to have a little try before you throw yourself in.
