Hello Infinite Flight Forum,
As I am sure you have just figured out, I am here today to introduce to you, the community, the 2017 Infinite Flight Olympic Games. This year will be even bigger and better than any other previous games. With seven events, spread all over the world and prizes from the best developers the community has to offer. As well as this, this year we aim to try and build on the failures of last year’s Olympic Games – namely the pilot’s skill and understanding level. So, I advise you read all of the passages below and get a feeling as to what this year’s games are really about:
This year, we as a committee plan to regulate which teams will be competing this year. To set up a team you must register your team on the Official Infinite Flight Olympics Website and fill in your details. Then, one member of the team will get in touch and brief you on your role as a team leader. As a team leader, you will be the mouth piece of your team and relay back to myself stating who will be attending your events. Bear in mind that the maximum number of member per team is 12
This year, we plan to hold seven events, excluding the opening and closing ceremony. One will be held in each continent (excluding Antarctica) and we will culminate in a long haul event, which stretches to the far corners of the world. Obviously, each event will have a winner who will get the most points and move up the table of rankings (incomplete)
This series of events as will be held twice a week on a Wednesday and a Saturday. The events will only start three weeks after Global, which will give us some great new event possibilities as well as allowing some of the rush of Global to die down. So now you have two things to look forward to.
This year it is my absolute pleasure to announce that we are actually awarding pilots to both the winning team and the runner up team. Every single winning team member will receive a completely free copy of @epaga 's IF assistant app aswell as all the in-app purchases. The runner up team will receive a 1 month sub to LiveFlight Horizon courtesy of @Cameron. Aswell as this, @epaga was gracious enough to give another free copy of IF assistant app . The winner will be who we ,as Olympic staff, saw as the most courteous and knowledgable pilot. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank these two truly great people, who have allowed me to elevate this series of events to another level.
[details=Pilots]Now last year promised to be a great games aswell, but was partially ruined by some “peanut” pilots. This year, to avoid that, we as a team have decided to introduce a compulsory test to all pilots who hope to compete in this year’s games. This is a basic test and the pass mark is 90%. That is not hard, however, if you receive over 60% you will be allowed to retake again in two weeks. Any lower than that, I’m afraid you will not allowed to compete. Based on their extremely hard work, and that we are using a free trial, IFATCs will be given free access and are not required any testing. The protocol for testing is:
- Team leader contacts me (or) @dush19 via PM
- Team leader invites all team members (max 12)
- I generate and supply the codes to everyone
- Pilot takes the test and screenshots the results screen (very important)
- If a retest is required, I will continue gernerating the keys for your team
This should hopefully ensure the partial education of the competing pilots.[/details]
And one last thing, if you didn’t see that above, we also have a new official website, which can be found here.
I would like to once again, thank our sponsors who are listed below:
