    Fight For Honor 2019 - 1 V 1 Dogfighting Tournament

    I have been getting emails about this tournament, and enrollment is now open. I have never even flown online in DCS World, but I'm thinking of giving this a go, just for the fun of it. I was watching a 4 V 4 "SATAL" tournament on dcsworldevents on Twitch a couple of weeks ago, as I subscribed to that channel. Despite a pretty slow build up, the fights themselves are good to watch. This 1 V 1 dogfighting tournament sounds really cool, and all proceeds are going to a good cause. There are also pretty great prizes for winners.



    Pick any aircraft and dogfight 1 v 1 (guns only) against other players across the world in this charity event to support the fallen and their families. DCS pilots will fight for the opportunity to fly in DCS with real F/A-18 and F-16 fighter pilots C.W. "Mover" Lemoine or Trevor "Gonky" Hartsock. All proceeds of this event will benefit Folds of Honor.
    Opening day rounds will take place later on September 7th and on the following day, September 8th. Closing tournament rounds will then be taking place the weekend of the 28th and 29th. Participants will be flying multiple times on each day as long as they continue to win.
    Age requirements: 18 | Registration is now open and will last until 5 Sept 2019 | Registration fee is $20 USD.
    You must have an account already registered on dcs-world.com before registering. Join the DCS Discord for more detailed info about the tournament. Upon registration, users must select any official DCS aircraft they will be flying with throughout the tournament. The free modules are allowed. Registrants will submit their information into the FOH website and a CSV will be compiled and sent to DCS World Events. Registrants will be contacted with their time slots.

    • 1st place DCS flight with C.W. Lemoine, Thrustmaster F/A-18C HOTAS Add-on Grip, and F-16 Module or DCS module from Eagle Dynamics module of choosing.
    • 2nd place DCS flight with Gonky, DCS module from Eagle Dynamics of choosing.
    • 3rd Place DCS module from Eagle Dynamics of choosing.

    Sincerely,
    The Eagle Dynamics Team

    I ended up signing up for this tournament at the last minute, and have just checked the schedule. My first match is at 12 PM Saturday, or 4 AM Sunday my time! I'm not too crash hot at BFM at the best of times, and 4 AM is not the best of times . Oh well, should be a bit of fun. Now, which aircraft to use?......... My first thought is the Hornet because it is a good all rounder and powerful and agile, not to mention it's what I have been flying for the past few months exclusively. I was talking to a work colleague about the comp today and we started discussing the matchups like Hornet vs Spitfire. It will be interesting to see what everyone ends up flying. I have noticed a lot of guys in the SATAL 4 v 4 tournaments like the SU-27.

    Use the Hornet. Most guys don't know how to BFM properly anyway. It'll give you the best power v agility available ATM.

    Here's a video of one of the round 2 matches from the Fight For Honor with some post match commentary from C.W. Lemoine. The winner of the tournament gets a prize and gets to fly with and fight against this guy, who is an ex F/A-18 pilot. I think he currently flies the T-38.

    This is a good match, between a Hornet and a Mirage. There were a surprising amount of Mirages in this competition. I got beaten by a Mirage in the second round. I actually get a mention in this video, right near the end (20:20) when he's talking about a match that was funny to watch and "painful", that was my match . Me and my opponent both lost sight so flew around for about 10 minutes trying to get a visual again. I beat another Hornet in my first round, but my second round match was terrible. I really hope to do another one of these tournaments in any case.

    DCS World Events who ran this tournament, also do weekly 4v4 tournaments, and I just got another email about a new 2v2 BVR comp starting in November. I am thinking about finding a wingman (or flight lead) and entering the 2v2 comp.
