Because it wouldn't be a true squadron since the Dogfight "Press" fly around and snap pictures. Also since the 111th, Enigma and others have members that associate themselves as "Press" -- it would be very confusing as to what squadron they were in (as you can only join one squadron).

In short, it wouldn't work.

Actly it could work. The members would only were the press squadron tags when there out to take pictures. They would then take it off and put there squad tags back up whe nthey are don taking pics.

But that's implying anyone would actually follow on that "If I have a 'Press tag', then don't shoot me". Because most players who play Dogfight aren't on the forum. They'd think it's another squadron.

That's like saying every country follows the Geneva Convention. In conflict, they usually aim for the medics to prevent them from saving any causalities. Even the United States doesn't abide by Geneva Codes as they hire out contractors (mercenaries) from the likes of Black Water, Global Dynamic, etc to go in and do all the dirty work. Contractors aren't required to follow Geneva codes because they are a private Corp. Not a national army.

Anyways, I got off tangent. Not too many people would follow the "Press Law" and shoot them anyways.

The only way I could see it working correctly would be to have a press "group" not a squad necessarily. Anyone flying an ID under PRESS would actually need to have no weapons and be invincible to bullets and bombs. Also in this situation it would be best if you could switch between plane, tank, and soldier at will. If the vehicles were made to look non threatening it would help too. This would allow for some truly amazing photography.

It seems to work pretty well to just declare neutrality. I've done it several times to climb a mountain in a tank, walk up one, I've even tried to drive a plane up one.

If it's a bunch of noobs, well, just say when you join that you'll shoot if fired on. You should be able to outfight any number of noobs. :)

Yeah, I know what you mean. There's people who don't respect the press, but that can't be changed.

People would use this to spam & troll the chat. And no one would be able to shoot them. Many players will gang up on spammers until they quit playing. People would abuse the system.

Creating a group/squadron wouldn't cost "hundreds" or "thousands".
But you are indeed right, many would cry "hacker".

This is the best method if you guys want to do a Press group. But you mustn't get mad if no one abides by your Press code.

My point exactly. :)



tl;dr It just wont work implementing a new system, squadron, etc.

It wouldn't. Cost. Money. :whistle:

Opening a server would cost money. Adding a specialized squadron would not. It would only cost time.

It wouldn't cost anything to give people the ability to transition freely between tank and plane, and give them invulnerability? I'm confused. Isn't the development just coding? Why does any of it cost money? :whistle:

Well, it essence -- "time is money". However people are making a direct correlation that adding said features costs money.

However, servers do indeed cost money. The more Infastructure features you add (that directly correlate with a server) will raise bandwidth usage -- hence, it costs money.

Now, I can't confirm this in the case of Dogfight -- but based on my past experience with coding a homebrew game for the PSP that featured online capabilities; you need a form of income to keep up with server costs. This is why many "free" multiplayer games often have those "bonus features" you must pay for or advertisements in game. It's so it all pays for itself and eventually gains profit.

Oh, I get it. When Joaquin said that squad wars would cost five grand, he meant he'd be paying employees and working himself for $5000 worth of work. I knew the servers cost money, that's been discussed in the past, and it's kinda annoying. :laugh: We need new servers like every week just to keep overflow down on the weekends.

Do you know how many games at once the servers can handle?

Exactly Calvin! And that's why no more servers can be opened at the moment. If more were opened, profit would be lost (which isn't what you want as a game developer). So until the quota is met (and consistent), then there'll probably be more servers opened.

And I'm not sure on the detail as every game is different/takes up different amounts of bandwidth.

Press squad is not a bad ide. Just have a press tagg and dropp the bomb. maybe use spade that is hard to hit. Lett all the squads inn the forum to now about it.
Press do not need to be imune, just a good pilot.
Press in real war is not imune. Just make a press squad, whit trusty players that will not shoot on us or bomb.
if you die some time becase a noob shoot u down, its not a big deal ;)

Search "PHOTOPLANE". I set that up when I was having account difficulties. A very interesting experiment. Only a few caused problems. Most were respectful. You have to remember that you WILL get shot down and not lose your temper.
I included my kills/bombing stats to prove that it was not a scam to get close and score points.
Good luck.
