cool. how does the point structure for kills and wins work? and does it end every six weeks or so with a winner? are there trophys?

Trophies are done to death. In the military we get Medals for bravery.
http://www.rmutt.netfirms.com/GS-medal.jpg

This medal will be awarded to the top squadron and top team in 2 catagories:

Highest Scorer and Most Effiecient (highest win%) Teams and pilots must log a minimum amount of battles in order to qualify for consideration for efficiency.

Cycles are 6 weeks long. One cycle will end at midnight on an announced day. The next cycle will begin 1 minute later, at 12:01 a.m.

The scoring is based on rewards for activity and play. The more active you are, the higher experience you will gain, the better your score in a match. The more kills you earn in a match and the less your opponent scores against you, the better your score. The more difficult the settings you fly, the better you score.

So, teams will need to devise a strategy for themselves that will be based on their activity and their settings in order to meet their goals.

I hope that answers your questions.

the more difficult your settings the higher your score. does this mean the competition is geared towards fullreal and giving more points to fullreal games? if so thats fine id just like to know this

Understandable reaction, but the answer is no. The scoring is set up to reward activity. I looked for a way to balance the scoring with the settings. If you ever flew a Full Switch game, you know that they score a much lower number of kills than open settings. So a balance in score comes from total kills made. For example, during the Beta I flew a 4v4 with arcade settings. I personally made 16 kills in that game. I later flew a 4v4 with Locked Pit, no externals. I made about 5 kills. The scores were about the same, but arcade came out a little above.

If you are stuck in one setting, either Open or Closed pits, Arcade or Full Difficulty, and you want to do well in Ghost Skies, you need to make up for it with activity. The teams that fly a variety of settings, and will make concessions in setting negotiations in order to fly more matches may fair better. But that is what the strategy for the individual teams is going to have to determine.

Hope that helps.

Site is back up. The new grapics are up, for the most part. Still a couple of areas getting tweaked.

Make sure that if you have visited the site before that you get the new maps and the new timer from the Downloads page, and that you print and read the new rules.

Item of note: Ghost Skies considers the dynamics of a spinning prop secondary to pilot skill.

Ah right now i dont really feel settled enough to play a comp, patch after patch, leaked official patch thats supposeed to not be final although when the game starts it doesnt say beta anywhere i can see, so now oleg will change it cause he wont be happy.Once everything becomes stable then i might be able to get my stick set up the way i like it for the new flight models ect. and feel happy that it isnt gonna all change anyday, once again.
