IAT are recruiting

Post by Jonnyb » Tue Apr 18, 2006 11:16 am

There is an open position for the #6 position as the secong right wingman. I or Robbie will be hosting tryout sessions where you will be asked to fly in slot and wing. Doing some turns climbs, decends and wing over's. Maybe others if wanted. Just leave me a post on the IAT forum and we will sort you out.

I would, but I'm not sure if I'd make it. I've flown with my friends before, and I can fly a diamond formation extremely precisely, we can all do rolls at the same time, and I can do turns and loops in formation, but I'm afraid I might not even be close to what you guys can do, and I'd only embarrass myself. I gotta get flying with more people so I can prove to myself I CAN MAKE IT!!!!!! :shock: :D :?

Take a look at these tell me what u think:

Well it depends on if you can make the times GMT style. We usually start training at 20:30GMT so if you oculd figure out what time that is for you then we might be able to sort out a tryout date for you. :D

I'll find out ASAP, but don't you think it would be somewhat laggy? I dont lag at all with people across the USA, but across the world it might get a little lagged!!! I'm on a cable high speed connection...

U.S. Eastern Time is currently GMT -4 hours, subtract further if you're in Central, Mountain or Pacific time (one more hour per time zone).

You will have a higher latency; however, if your connection and the one you're connecting too is fast (the word "high-speed" could mean many things from 1Mbps up to 10Mbps) then you should be ok. From the east coast to Europe anything around "100" I'd consider excellent, "150" good, "200" barely ok and above "250" poor. Our own Cobra is an Aussie and flies from Sidney (as well as many other locations in the south pacific, Singapore, Hong Kong to mane a few when he's out working). He usually has a "200-220" ping to our dedicated server. He makes up for it be flying Sierra Hotel. The thing to remember here is that he is on the exact opposite side of the planet with a "220" ping, so from the U.S. to Europe I would consider "100-200" the acceptable range with emphasis on the lower "100's". The only way to find out is to join their host server and see what kind of "ping" you have!

I was a mess. :oops: . White fingers the entire time!! I'm relaxed while flying with people I know, with JB I couldn't even talk while flying! I'll get my good joystick back and be more prepared next time. I just did the training mission, I was in formation perfectly! I guess in order for me to be perfect, I have to either know my flyers well, or remember that they are AI :lol: ... I can't believe I was so terrible up there that time.

:lol: didn't mean it like that. I was trying to look my best so I was somewhat nervous, and I was doing bad so it only made me even more tense.
