Ok. I have been wanting to start up the IL2 Challenge since IL2 was "just" IL2. Well im bored, your bored, and we are all waiting for 4.0. So here is a little "sumthin sumthin" to pass the time!

Here is the deal. Every week (till the patch is released) I will come up with a new IL2 Challenge. Complete the challenge, and post your score online in the challenge thread. The best score wins. The winning score MUST post or E-mail me a track to confirm his/her score. Once confirmed the winner will be announced and I will host the track so we can all admire your l337 flying skillz.

What does the winner get? Our admiration and the chance to brag. :lol:

Here is the first of the IL2 Challenges.

Title; Hurri Up!

Settings; QMB at 3000M on <span class="ev_code_RED">Smolensk</span>. Your aircraft is a Hirricane IIB, no friendly AI. Your alone on this one. The target, 4 ACE He-111's. The challenge, shoot them down in the least amount of time. The pilot with the shortest time from start, till the last He-111 EXPLODES is the winner. You can try as many times as you like. Post your fastest time in this thread WITHIN 24 HOURS. The time is now 4:00PM Pacific time.

Rules; Unlimited ammo and fuel if you wish. Realistic FM and closed cockpit. Also you must use realistic gunnery. All other options are up to the pilot. Tracks must be recorded in 3.04M

So what do you guys think of this little competition? Im looking forward to seeing some scores posted. Get crackin!!!

Next weeks challenge will be "Sniper".

Feel free to re-post this in other forums, but post the results here at Ubi or CWOS.

In the event of a tie, first one to post his/her score is the tie braker.

I have ships on that map that make life a little hard on the bombers. Or maybe it just my game that has them?

Ugh. I may change maps. I wish I was at home so I could check this out myself.

Yep AA still shoots - try Smolensk map maybe.

Bloody hard btw http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Map changed to Smolensk to remove the AA.

Yes, it is bloody hard. I think your best shot is to PK them. Thats why I chose the setup http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif People THINK its easy. And trust me, the Betty would be harder. That 20MM WILL kill you. Thats part of the "challange"

Very cool idea Gibbage. I may never post a good time buts its an incentive until the P word becomes a reality.

Good idea but I would go with limited ammo.

With the gunner AI as messed up as it is right now--count me out.

I'll take the next one.

I just flew the challenge myself. Yes, the AI gunners are INSANE, but its NOT impossible.

Here is a tip. The top gunner is a 13MM. The Belly gunner is a 7.62. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Enjoy!

OK. I tried 30+ times with Ace gunners. Its just insane. They can kill me from .7 away and hit me at 1.0 at high deflection.

I am turning down the settings to Vet. I tried this and on my first try I got all 4. I have a track of it and will show it after the competition is over.

Good luck!

Bump!

So far we have 1 entry of 19 mins from CWOS ColoradoBBQ. Do you guys want to let those mean CWOS guys to win? Lets see some numbers! It should be EASY to beat 19 mins.

When are you setting my challenge Gibb? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Well times up! We have no entry's from the Ubi forum. So I guess that makes ColoradoBBQ the winner by default since he was the only one to post a time. His first time was 19 min, and 2nd time was 13:57. I will post his track later today.

Question is, what can I do to make these challenges better? The next challenge will be a LOT easier and will test your aim more then your skill at dodging insane gunners.

Should I extend the time to submit to longer then 24 hours? Have a designated day? Maybe post the challenge on Friday and let you work on it till Sunday?

Please give me some feedback so we can make this a lot more fun and enjoyable for everyone.

Thanks to all those who tried. It was a VERY hard challenge. A big S! to you all.

Those 7.92's are OVERMODELED!!!! ROTF!!

I got my rear end handed to me about 10 times tryin that last lil deal. I sure made some pretty fireworks displays.. LOL

~S~ to the BBQ Meister too.

A weekend to fool with it would be nice. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The winning track!

Compleated in 13 min 57 sec.

Just for fun, this is my track.

http://www.gibbageart.com/files/hurriup.zip

6 min 46 sec. Not bad hay? I had a bit of luck though. :P Since im running this show, I disqualify myself.

Im surprised nobody tried to use the Hurri IIB's bombs! Unlimited ammo = tight bomb streem for the He-111's to fly through on the first head-on pass. It would of been WELL within the rules http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Some of my next competitions you may need to think "outside the box" like that. Well enjoy the tracks and work on your aim for the next challenge, Sniper!!!
