So May 25th is the Devils Dragons first birthday!

How about some facts about DD

Why Devils Dragons
Well I thought about it and have you ever seen better art created for something that flies than Dragons? I always loved the symbolism of the colors and all the different possibilities of size and lore, it allowed for a lot of creativity. Also the short form of DD or double d's also seems well received with fun jokes like who doesn't love double d's or just what I love to see double d's everywhere!

Why no apostrophe?
Shouldn't it be Devil's Dragons? Well since it's a name it can be anything we like and I didn't like the look so I left it out. There is an Austrian Motorcycle Club named the same way so instead of I guess me being the devil and everyone being the dragons we are all Devils Dragons is the premise...it's probably still wrong grammatically but if you've seen our posts and played with us you will see that we don't care much for these sorts of things. What do you think looks nicer..
.
DEVIL'S DRAGONS or DEVILS DRAGONS


Still undefeated* in any fight night. We have won a few and the rest all got got ruined by disconnections of players so the battle wasn't really DD vs Whatever squad.

*We had a loss but our team wasn't all DD when we fought the Misfits with our second team. We had 2 simultaneous fights the full 4 DD vs 4 Misfit ended in a Did Not Finish. The second game had 3 Dragons and a non Dragon vs 4 Misfits that was a loss. In the full Dragon game, since a DD player got disconnected and we couldn't get them back in game and since the battle had been so even up to that point we called the game a draw and we would schedule a rematch.

-I think we have the most perma-banned players ever....well in my time anyway. We have had: JacobR (Richy Roo), Snobumm/Blackstar, Cobra92/Zippy/Spitfire...must be something in the water...

-Thulsa Doom comes from the movie Conan the Barbarian (or that is where my wife chose it, one of her top 5, weird girl)and is pronounced just like Tulsa, OK but with a Th sound...not Thellousa that we were surprised to is how find lots of people pronounce it. Here is some more info en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thulsa_Doom

-Snidely Whiplash actually comes from Rocky and Bullwinkle (excellent cartoon) and he is very similar to Dick Dastardly. He is the arch rival of Dudley Do Right the Canadian Mountie...So it's pretty hard to find a Canadian villain and I have used that name in a number of games before Dogfight.

Please feel free to post ideas on how to celebrate!

Congrats on one year. You guys are one of the coolest squads in the game, and i love flying with every member I've ever played with. You guys mostly fly straight, which makes you fun to run with.
For a celebration, how about losing a Fight Night? Against GI maybe? Or not...
Well Gratz Snidley and crew! Cya around bud, eh?
You're getting predictable, guys. You can do better, right?

Game ideas

Hide and go seek
I think Joker mentioned a game of hide and go seek. The idea I think is one player is IT, everyone Starts at the house at the end of the bridge and the player who is it counts 20 after everyone has vanished from radar then everyone tries to make it back in the house without crashing of getting shot down. first person caught is it for the next round. Only the player who is it can shoot.

Tag
Easy one person is it and is the only one who can shoot whomever they shoot down is it.

Follow the leader
Everyuone lines up behind the leader and the leader performs stunts and everyone else in a line behind one after the other perform the same stunts on the fly. So it would look like the are all strung together and at each stunt the leader says what the stunt is to make it make it easier.

What about drag racing? Start at one end of the bridge, and race to the other side, either in a plane or in a tank. Trick with plane maybe, is u cant leave the ground.... how does that sound for an idea? If it sounds strange or unusual, its cause its 2 am here, I almost fell asleep working on a banner, and the idea of that poped into my head.

It's a pretty funny idea but the thing is, fully upgraded tanks are jsut as fast as the other one aka it would almost always be a tie

Wait, I got another idea. Tank ramming on the bridge, 2 teams start off, both trying to ram, flip and eventually push the other team off, and the team with the last tanks left on the bridge wins. How about somethjbg like that? Similar to bumper tanks.

Like a demo derby but in tanks...cool

How about long range tank shots. 2 tanks each pick a spot and once set cannot move the tank only fire the shell. If tha tank naturally rolls fine but no repositioning.

-Thulsa Doom comes from the movie Conan the Barbarian (or that is where my wife chose it, one of her top 5, weird girl)and is pronounced just like Tulsa, OK but with a Th sound...not Thellousa that we were surprised to is how find lots of people pronounce it. Here is some more info en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thulsa_Doom

-Snidely Whiplash actually comes from Rocky and Bullwinkle (excellent cartoon) and he is very similar to Dick Dastardly. He is the arch rival of Dudley Do Right the Canadian Mountie...So it's pretty hard to find a Canadian villain and I have used that name in a number of games before Dogfight.

Please feel free to post ideas on how to celebrate!

If we are gonna explain the DD names

The ace of spades was used in psychological warfare against the highly superstitious viet kong, wh it worked was because the ace of spades was the card of death in fortune telling in Vietnam

Usually I have found being very friendly and explaining to them what we are doing and since all are welcome to join I think it should be somewhat easy and if not we can then play against the non DDs until they rage quit :whistle: :evil: :woohoo:
