Where do we go to find game-specific details such as:

Is there a manual? (technical writer - I would work on a project with others)

What are points?
How do you get points?
What actions bring the most points?
How many points for each level?
Where do I see my points?

Squadrons - what are the advantages and disadvantages to joining a squadron?
How do you join a squadron?
What is social etiquette regarding recruiting, changing squadrons, leaving squadrons?
Are there squadron activities, squadron battles, etc...?

I've created a list of links to posts and threads regarding rules, etiquette and strategies "The Unofficial Dogfight Law Library" it hasn't been updated in a while but it has links to many discussions of contentious issues over the years as well as quotes and posts by the game maker regarding how the game should be played.

In fact, the only official "rules" are listed on a thread titled:

*Read before posting* Forum Rules/Etiquette (This thread has been locked and stickied to the top of the Gossip section.)



Under the section "Dogfight (in game) and Dogfight Forum Rules" eighteen rules are listed. The only one pertaining to in-game play is:

17. (In game only) Do not team kill, destroy our own bases or anything else that would be deemed "gameplay ruining"


The other "rules" are about legal issues and various forms and types of communication. For example:

12. Do not bash other players or squadrons either in forum or in game.

13. Absolutely no flaming/trolling or heavy swearing. You will be banned for a certain amount of time which is at the discretion of the Admin/Mod.

14. Help new players.

16. We respect other people's thoughts, opinions and beliefs.

18. Remember: The use of Dogfight and forum is a privilege, not a right. The Dogfight staff reserves the right to revoke access and remove content without notice. This includes being muted or banned in game.

TurboDad86,

I hope you find something useful in the posts above. Please feel free to contribute anyway you can. Keep in mind that Dogfight is constantly changing, particularly in the way points are scored. A full manual would need constant updates.

Also, be sure to see the "stickied" threads in the announcements and others sections.

From announcements re: points

Zuperman said (a while ago, not sure if this is still all accurate):

The ranking is pretty simple, it goes in this order:

1) Your rank. A MORAF (rank 31) is above any rank 30, a rank 30 is above 29 and so on.
2) On the same rank, it is based on your scored points.
3) In the odd case that you have the same rank and same points, then it's based on your kill-deads number.

That's it. Basically it is point 1 and 2, because the 3 hardly if ever happen and it would last for a few minutes.

As to what gives/reduces points. Some are static, some are dynamic.
- When you safely land using the parachute, you get 50 points.
- Bombing an hangar gives you 75 points.
- Bombing a carrier gives you 75 points.
- Winning a game gives you 200 points.
- Losing a game gives you 100 points. (yes, you get points losing a game, because you stayed there until the end!)
- Killing a friend makes you lose 50 points.
- Bombing a friendly hangar makes you lose 200 points.

The part that are dynamic:

- Killing enemies. It is calculated on the difference between your ranks, if you are a rank 31 killing a rank 3, you will get almost no points. But if you are rank 3 and bring down a rank 31, you will get lots of points.
- Mission specific things, for instance, the zeppelin mission:
The zep has a total amount of points. When you hit it, you get some of those points. At the end of the game, if you brought down the zep you will get all its points, but if you didn't, the defending team will get 700 points.

Other missions may have some more dynamic things. Yes, i'm working on new missions :P
