It appears to me that Team USA is shy all of a sudden, so I guess I go ahead and congratulate them with their victory over the Russian team. Match took place yesterday on the Server_wars. I happened to be judging that event and I have to tell you that TUSA guys have out done themselves. It is known that Russian team is hands down toughest team out there and it took tremendous team work and not ordinary tactical decisions to defeat them. TUSA won by completing all ground objectives with series of very effective strikes, I seen the sneaky bastiges crawling down low with flights of P-38s loaded to no-more http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif, then wiping out entire enemy shipping 10 min later. What can I say, impressive.
So, congratulations again TUSA, but keep in mind, that Russians are coming after you now http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif - practice, practice and one more time practice.

Cheers!

Thanks Ivan for posting.

No we are not shy if anyone really knows us. We were just exhausted. So much so that TS was almost empty last night. Ivan we owe you a great deal. You are defenetely one of the piller of this community and without your fluent Russian things would not have been the same.

Here is the official note sent to the Russian Team by our C/O Pepper:


To our Friends on the Russian team:

Friends, today we owe you a debt of gratitude for your efforts to participate in today's match.

It was hard fought with much strategy put forth on both sides. We consider your team to represent some of the best in the game and we have complete respect for each and every one of you.

From our side, we have done our best to prepare and we consider ourselves fortunate to have been able to win today. We salute and honor your efforts in every way.

In the future, we will gladly meet you on any map you would prefer. We look forward to our next meeting and we all wish you all the best in both the virtual as well as the real worlds.

Sincerely,

Pepper
C/O, TUSA

What I can share is that TeamUSA has had it's unexpected highs and lows but through it all we have become a team. We have come a very long way from the first match against the Russian team 2 years ago. This year we have been fortunate to win over the German, French and now the Russian team made from Ross, =FB= and others Russian squads I'm not familiar with.

My debt of gratitude is also extended to Gozr. Gozr envisioned this level of competition to be partaken by all countries in a friendly competetive manner.

I have made many friends from many counties, both in competition and on TeamSpeak. For this I say thank you to Oleg Maddox and crew. Without their involvement and foresight none of this would have come to fruition.

Diablo310th, we missed you buddy!


For those interested in this competition level the settings are always locked cockpit no externals, speed bar, minimap and no enemy icons. Friendly icons vary with each competition.

Not shy at all Ivan. Monguse summed it up pretty well...we're tired and have a GREAT deal of respect for Team Russia and the other countries represented in this unique competition. For me personally, when you are fortunate enough to chalk up a win against such an outstanding opponent, you are respectfully grateful. Salute to Team Russia and I look forward to our future contests...I have no doubt they will be some kind of show!

Thanks Ivan,

Your efforts were much appreciated! It was a great match, I had a blast, and it was an absolute honor to fly against the Russian Team. They are great competitors, great pilots, and great sportsmen. As you already said, they are an awesome team comprised of exceptionally strong pilots, I hold them in the highest regard, and look forward to flying with and against them in the future. S!

Team USA made me proud as well. They are first and foremost a team . . .the teamplay aspect of this group impressed me, that's always been TX Squadron's thing. . . and they did it wonderfully, and with the inclusion of every voice on the roster in the formulation of the plan. I only wish that I hadn't been so busy over the last two years, or I'd have been flying with them all along. For those who haven't tried such a competition, I can't encourage you enough.

TX Squadron Salutes the competitors of GOZR‚‚ā¨ôs international competitions. It is TX's beleif that flying a combined arms fighter/ bomber/ground attack, multi-faceted team based competition is the greatest challenge there is. Of course GOZR deserves many thanks for setting this in motion, and facilitating for the last couple years.

Job well done on all fronts!

Congrats to Team USA. I had a chance to listen in on teamspeak. Both teams are made up of extraordinary pilots. Listening to the TUSA comms showed that everyone had a clear assignment, and each pilot was very disciplined in executing them, both the defense team and the bombers.

Still, it could have gone either way. The Russians pounded the ground targets and mixed it up in the air with real dedication. Looking forward to the next round.

Thanks to Team USA and the Russian pilots for for a great show.

Congrats guys!!! As you know I was the 20th pilot, and had to fall out of the battle in the last moments just before the match, due to a hardware failure. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif So that means folks TUSA battled one man down from the beggining. 19 vs 20.

Oh I still have not figured out what is wrong with my machine. I had it running again just long enough to watch the track. Now its back to the blue screen on bootup http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Thanks everyone for all the kind words, interest and support.

I would like to thank all of our pilots, flight leaders, technical support, PROWAR (Professional War) Servers, and my C/O Pepper. Your dedication, hard work, sacrifice and open- minded approach to new ideas have made all the difference in our collective victory. A special note of thanks to my wingman of infinite patience, TUSA/TOAD for putting up with me these last several months, and trying to keep our element skills up while doing 100 other things.

We are currently examining media at hand (multiple track files, event logs, TeamSpeak recordings and other graphics) for release considerations. There were 40 pilots from several countries who participated and we believe it's important and honorable to await input from all pilots before proceeding further. Thanks for your patience.

A sincere thank you is in order for all participating squadrons who provided pilots and other support throughout the development of TUSA.

I'd like to thank all the participating pilots and International Teams. The French and German teams are of extremely high calibre, possessed unquestionable professionalism and helped hone our skills to a higher plataeu by their efforts in the International Competitions.

A tip of the hat and deep respect to the combined FB, ROSS and 2GvShAD teams within Team Russia. This is my third event flying and planning against Team Russia, and I can easily say without reservations that they are unparalleled in pairs air-to-air combat. If it were not for the ability of the Russian groups, we on TUSA would not have been driven to the levels of performance that we demonstrated on Sunday.

The track from the match is phenomenal. It demonstrates a variety of fighting styles, both air to air and ground attack, force and battle management techniques that I've seen come together nowhere else. We are still in the process of detailed reconstruction and analysis of the match, and will be for some time. The detailed reconstruction process of previous matches is a key component in TUSA training, planning and operations.

S~ All. Thanks again. I'll write more when I'm finished working on the reconstruction and we have determined the releaseabilty of such information.

Warm Regards

TUSA/TX-Gunslinger
Executive Officer

how the heck is it a 4hour long track you can fly to all edges of the maps in 20-30 minutes with a p11.

Go take the tracks and record just the interesting parts.

play the track then quick record while track is playing to make a smaller segment of air battles and ground attack. It might get more people interested.

the match was only 45 mins and the track is about 14 mb, roughly

So true, but we have been doing this for two years + I guess either the marketing is bad or they are not interested in TUSA, or maybey they have flown with some of the other teams. You don't actually have to be from said country, to fly with said team. Just need to organize a team that represents a country. Sure it would be nice to get all on said team, all from same country but, just getting a team together is tough as it is.

So BS when are you going to organize a team from your happy little country down there? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

It's a great discipline that we take it to a level of a sport As PROWAR set the path years ago.

It's Open to everyone that think they could participate and enjoyed.

Well done by both sides. I am told by the judge it was an incredible match. Full respect to Team USA for their victory, I am eager to see the track and I want to take a moment to salute Gozr as well for hosting/planning the competition.

Well done to all!
