hi crash, was checking this out but when i click on rules, cant expand any of the branches, will look later using ie, are the rules as far as settings negotiated by the 2 teams or is there a fixed set?
regards Arms

Rules will be set. The normal negotiation that is present in a Ghost Skies cycle match won't be available for the tournament because of the nature of the time table set forth to find a winner.

Single elimination, except for members of active Ghost Skies teams, who receive a double elimination benefit.

Hope to see you all there! <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

I was excited until that point. Nothing feels worse than winning a match but losing the competition because you have to rematch and you lose on the go around, and you only get one shot.

Also the link seems to provide no information about the competition on the frontpage or accessable subpages.

Originally this was to be for Ghost Skies only. But we decided to open it to the public.

Settings will be Cockpit On, no externals. 2k limited icons, Speedbar and Minimap path will be on.

Yes, all other settings will be full switch. 2k icons for ID, plane type and color for both sides.


And about the Double elimination for GS members. Just got out of a discussion with a couple of my Admin. We all rethought about the fairness of the Double for GS members. Our goal was to promote a reason for GS activity. However, I don't want to sacrifice getting community members excited about this NaturalPoint gift. So, we're retracting that part of the tourney.

The Double Domination Tournament will be SINGLE elimination for all participants!

We discussed allowing double elimination for all, but in the interest of the time constraints I have, we are going to keep it Single.

Thanks for the interest! Spread the word!

Crash this tournament just in and of itself will be the best advertising for your Ghost Skies. It will also be great advertising for Track IR.

p.m. me i have questions about rules. ALLIED FIGHTER JOCKS will help any way we can.

The Double Domination Tournament will be held March 12th at 4pm Pacifc Time (U.S.) on Hyperlobby!

After further discussions with Jason, we've decided to use an extra week to promote this inagural tournament. We want to make sure we spread the word well enough, plus give people enough time to sign up and absorb the rules and prepare. Not to mention it will give the Ghost Skies staff more time to ready our website and database.

Thank you for understanding our growing pains. We are breaking new ground. I'm sure this will be much easier the next time Ghost Skies brings a prize tournament to the community!

I wanted to reward GS members for their loyal participation. But I have another way I'm going to do that. I really want this to do well for NP's sake. Well, for all our sake's, because I would like this to be an extended relationship between Ghost Skies and NaturalPoint, and mutually beneficial.

As far as the rules, let me finish them before you tear them apart RedDeth. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Thanks for the kind words. I know registration is currently off-line and we don't have the rules up yet. I want to make sure this is right so we can have a smooth competition, rather than thrown together half-a$$. I will let everyone know as soon as we have the rules and a fixed registration available.

Tournament Overview
Double Domination will be a single elimination 2v2 tournament. The Tournament will be held March 12th at 4pm Pacific Standard Time (U.S.) on Hyperlobby. Prior to the first round, teams will need to check in with the Ghost Skies Competition site to that their team is present and ready to compete. At 4pm the first round will be announced via a bracket website and Team Speak server. Teams will be randomly paired against each other and randomly chosen to host. Any team may be required to host, so make sure you have all the required downloads installed AND TESTED prior to the start of the first round. The bracket site will also show what aircraft is to be flown during the round. All pilots will be required to be in the same aircraft. Only prop fighters will be selected. The battle will be fought in accordance with the rules. The match will last 20 minutes, The round will last 30 minutes. Do not mistake them for one another. The 30 minute time for a Round accounts for the extra time needed for teams to find each other and launch the game. The 30 minutes will start 5 minutes after the initial announcement is made. Once the individual match is complete, the winning team will report via the Ghost Skies Competition website, and will await the start of the next round. Rounds will continue until all teams have been eliminated except for one winner, so allow plenty of time.

Would register,..except at 30kps dialup vs dsl
guess whom wins? tip; when dsl is at 75% throttle dialups at weapons boost.
"Speed is life."
what would be the point for a dialup user?

x__CRASH__x
03-04-2005, 11:30 PM
I've known several dial up users who connect fine. Plus its only a 2v2. And its on the Ghost Skies match map, which is built to reduce lag and stutters. My dial-up users who fly the Ghost Skies competition have never complained about the maps.

Give it a shot! Whats the worst that can happen? You will have a good time, you will meet cool people from around the world, and you will be helping the IL-2 community set a foothold in prize competitions. If we as a community set a positive standard for this competition, it could open the door for other companies to donate their products for future competitions!

Double Domination is breaking new ground for both IL-2 and Ghost Skies. I want this to be a success with as many playes as possible so we show the companies that we are a strong, active community that is worth their attention and sponsorship.

if it must get sent to Acapulco, then I will regrefully hand carry it there, and bill NaturalPoint for the traveling expenses. Even if it takes me a full week to find your house, I will not fail in searching for you on every beach and in every bar in the city!

I have to manage the entire tournament on my own. More than 1 day dedicated out of my busy real life schedule would be asking way too much of me. Perhaps in a future tournament we can work out a way for better European times, and possibly longer than 1 day. But I had to fit this inaugural tournament into my family schedule. I'm sorry for any inconvenience, but it's the best I can do. I hope you understand, and the times will not preclude you from participating.
