Disclaimer about the Merge protocol

We know this is not going to be popular with everyone, there are some purist out there that believe the fight starts before the merge, and while that is 100% true while flying online in a PvP environment, it is not how they train 1 vs 1 guns only in real life.

We are not simulating a combat situation in this event and as such we want to try and mirror the real world protocol a bit more, however that being said we are not going to introduce a 'bubble' around each aircraft that cannot be entered simply because no ones real life is at risk.

So how will the merge work?

Both pilots are able to manoeuvre as much as they want before the merge however you must pass your opponent at 5000ft, the fight starts after the 3/9 line is passed.

A pilot who does not meet the merge criteria will force the round to be restarted.

There is no speed restriction at the merge.

Why are you doing this?

  • Its more realistic.
  • We are going to have real fighter pilots join us for commentary on some of these events and we want to showcase a more realistic fight rather than two bro's flying towards each other at 15ft off the ground trying to get an angle advantage.
  • It stops one pilot having an advantage over the other before the fight even starts.

Some people have made a good point that the wings level protocol might be a big of a nightmare to enforce so we have removed the requirement, however both aircraft must still merge at 5000ft.

Question: What version of DCS does the server use / is using? As a VR player, 2.5.6 is still pretty bad. Just unfortunate timing (and maybe tomorrow a patch will come out that fixes VR performance). Or is it on Stable?



Unfortunately it will be on 2.5.6 sir.
