Hi all

I would like to start a debate about the rules in this game. I hope we can think together about the subject and express ourselves with respect for eachother.

I haven't seen any rules posted so far (Except swearing on the chat and teamshooting). If there's any please let me know.

I will post here my opinion about some of the usual issues and some posibles solutions.

SNEAKING

Definition:
When you climb higher than 1500 ft. you get invisible in the radar. That way you can get to the enemy base unseen.

Opinion:
I don't see anithing wrong with that. I think it makes the game more interesting. You can allways fly a bit higher so sneakers appear on your radar.

Posible solutions:
Make all players visible in the radar all the time.

It could be great to be invisible to the radar only if you fly really low.

DROPPING

d:
When you drop your bombs your plane gets better speed and turn rate. Some use it to get advantage on bombing missions. They can dogfight slower planes with bomb and can get faster to the enemy base. There, they transform in tanks once brought down.

O:
I think its a respectful strategy. On real air combat there's bombers and fighters to protect those bombers. What do I need a bomb for when I m outnumbered and all I can do is try to keep the enemy away from my base?

S:
2 possible solutions:
1.You can only get a tank if you are brought down before dropping
2. You can choose a role before spawning. Fighter or bomber. The other players can see your option.

SPAWN KILLING

There' a great thread about this subjetct on the forum. I totally agree with what's said there.

A possible solution: creat a small zone around the base. Once you bring down an enemy on this zone, you have to exit and re-enter the zone before you can shoot another one.

INVISIBLE PLANES AND TANKS

Sometimes, caused by a glitch on the game, your plane turns invisible to other players. Not just for a short period (lag), but for the rest of the game. That way you can bomb the enemy and end the game.

Also, if you land as a parachute on the enemy carrier and turn into tank you get invisible.

Opinion:

I think it's wrong because it spoils the fun of the game. There s no sense on playing anymore that way.

I never bombed as an invisible plane but i did land as a tank on carrier a couple of times. I ' ve stoped doing this (before Crazy Patan was banned!) because I though it wasn't fair as long as not all the players know about this.

This topic can be very useful for a lot of ppl who don't already know better.

I, myself had to learn the hard way like many others, as far as dropping, sneaking, and camping goes those arnt rules....yes ppl frawn upon it but we're all here to have fun and if u wanna drop than drop I'm sure someone will dance with u ;) but keep in mind there are many squads who don't allow dropping, sneaking and camping. So be sure to read up one the squads first page if ur interested in joining that particular squad and learn their do's and dont's.

I hope this could help

I'll cya around buddy

I think that is a great idea. I'm guessing that if zup ever gets around to making heavy bombers he may make the option to change planes at spawning. It would also be great to be able to adjust controls and sensitivity without exiting.

(Thanks Finn!)

www.dogfightplay.com/index.php/forum/new...library-dogfight-law

I set the Dogfight Law library as an open-source resource. Feel to recommend other threads or posts which should be there.

The "official rules" are linked in it. The links are light blue. ;)

Links to forum threads regarding Rules, Honor, Strategy and Tactics
(An open source work in progress)


The golden rule of Dogfight:
"Let others have fun and you'll have fun."
From Let people take off (By zuperman)



So much has already been said! I invite everyone to post links and/or short quotes from note-worthy discussion threads. A brief description or introduction and a link would be easiest to attach.



The discussions often start as a complaint about how another pilot plays the game. Some threads go on and on with input from many different players. They usually come to a point where everyone puts in their 2 cents yet people continue to disagree.

Religion and politics are forbidden forum topics because they are full of irreconcilable differences and high emotion. It may be that "Honor" and "tactics" are the religion and politics of Dogfight. Still, new threads critical about how other people fly are as common as ever.

None of these issues are new. One of the first of these discussions on forum record is in post #360 (+3½ years and nearly ¼ million posts ago) by "BEEDEE" . He wrote about what we now call "Dropping" and "Camping" and suggested that Zuperman provide limits on fuel (to prevent long term camping) and to make it so you can not drop your bomb until you are in enemy territory. Although the writer showed strong opinions of how he would like to see the game played, he was entirely constructive with his note to Zup. It was not in the tone of a complaint, in fact he started with: "I request you to kindly consider the following points"


I ask:

If you post about a topic in an effort to improve the game experience, please be constructive. There is about as much chance of determining “THE RIGHT WAY TO PLAY” as there is of everyone agreeing on “THE ONE” correct religion or political view.



Dogfight "Law" links


note: I am recommending these threads not only for the content of their original posts, but also as community discussions on these topics so the reader can check out a variety of opinions held by many different players. In fact, most of these threads are still live and anyone is welcome to continue the conversations.




On Rules or Etiquette:

The official Dogfight (echoboom/zuperman) sanctioned rules:

Note: The following threads were forum community suggestions/creations not Echoboom's official stance.

Yes, I already did that. And I'm sure Zup had his reasons. My question was where can we find those rules you said you saw in the introduction. Can you be more specific, please?

Thanks a lot Mc Fate. Tons of good information here! Its not easy to find it on your own in the forum.

I haven t read it all but as far as I can see there is nothing official. We all agree on the big lines and the debate starts case to case. Was that camping? Was it not?

I think even more now that a certain book of basic rules set by zuper could be very usefull.

BTW, being able to walk or tank on the carriers is a temporary glitch. It won't last long. (I hope)
