2.1 Tournament is held in the form of matches between teams. Pilots participate in a match on planes of one type.


2.2 Each match consists of 3 rounds. A team participates with 4 pilots in each round from the total members of the team. Every member of a team must be registered via application.

  • First round: Duel-fights 1vs1 – four consecutive 1vs1 duels. Each duel is carried out once, to a victory over the opponent. If there 3 victories of a team or 2 victories and 1 draw, 4th duel is not carried out.

  • Second round: Pair-duels fight 2vs2 – two consecutive 2vs2 duels. Each pair-fight is carried out once to a victory over the opponents.

  • Third round: 4vs4 duel fight - fight is carried out once to a general victory over all 4 opponents.


2.3 The aircraft of the match is defined by consecutive deletion of aircraft-groups followed by consecutive removal of the aircraft from the remaining group by the team leaders. Order of this procedure is by results of the draw, as described in p. 2.18. A draw winner also defines the side.


2.4 All the custom skins, marking and decals (visible to others) must be approved by judges of a match.


2.5 Only 6 pilots from each team, arbiters and streamers are allowed to join the game session. Mission loading is started after judge message in the chat : “Attention! Start in 30 seconds!” Spare players, arbiters, streamers have to enable “Arbiter” spectator mode. Country side (Axis/Allies) is defined by the draw. Permission to start (spawn) is given by Main Judge via game chat and depends on readiness of both teams. Aircrafts spawn in the air. If a player is disconnected or he has other technical problems (high ping, packet loss) after mission start, fight continues. If an arbiter has extremely high ping or several players lose their connection, the arbiter can stop a fight to restart it.


2.6 Height of the first convergence is free to choose. Modifications, ammo belts and fuel amount can be chosen freely. Weapon is standard (under-wing gun pods, bombs and missiles are not allowed). The fire on the first convergence is allowed in all rounds. However, the weapon is locked for 35 seconds.


2.7 The ram (collision) is considered as an element of combat and a way of conducting fight.


2.8 Pilots are assigned for each fight by their captain. An arbiter must record it for the final protocol. A player can participate only in one fight of the round (except for additional fights of a round).


2.9 If friendly pilots collide in 2vs2 or 4vs4 round - the fight continues for others.


2.10 Passive conducting of a fight.


  • After spawning in the air - flying in any direction but not towards the enemy.

  • After the first convergence - ignoring an enemy and withdrawing from the fight without any recognizable intention to fight.

  • Withdrawing from the area of fighting

If one of pilots runs out of ammunition - he has to stay in the flight and take offensive actions unless he has to perform defensive maneuvers. Withdrawing from combat in hope that enemy will run out of fuel is not allowed.

Passive behaviour will be followed via verbal warning from the Main Judge. If no changes will be noticed within 1 minute offending side will get an official warning.

Attention! There is a zone of a fight in mission. If you leave this zone, your opponent can capture it and win a fight.


2.11  If any participant runs out of ammo or fuel, a fight continues. In special case, when both sides are unable to take offensive actions and there is no visible advantage of any team, the Main Judge may call ‘re-fight’, if both Team Leaders will agree.


2.12 Victory in a fight must be explicitly declared by an arbitrator. Pilots have to stay in the air until mission end (even if opponents have crashed or shot down).


2.13  Each participant has the right to ask for 5-7 minute break for solving his technical problems. Also there can be a 5 minute break between rounds by the request of a captain of any team.


2.14 Teams which can't show up in the scheduled time, should write to the main judge of the tournament 2 hours prior to the scheduled time with a request for rescheduling, providing an explanation. Rescheduling of the match is possible only after negotiation of the date and time with the captain of the other team. The final decision on the possibility of rescheduling of the match is taken by the main judge.


2.15 Before each round of the match or before an additional fight in a round (in case of a draw in a round) a team captain can do any number of substitutions from his application list.


2.16 Captains of teams have the right to do a transfer or add pilots to their applications between matches during the tournament. The number of replaced pilots shouldn't exceed 2 pilots during the tournament. Thus a total number of pilots shouldn't exceed 6.

All changes to the applications must be sent to the main judge of the tournament not less than for 2 hours prior to the beginning of the next match.

Pilots that left the tournament can not be added into different team.


2.17 Captains of teams don’t have the right to rearrange pilots on spawn points or to do replacements of pilots (from among spare) if there is a re-flight assigned. Unless one of the pilots cannot continue due to the technical problems.


2.18 A draw by judges is made as follows:

  • The main judge moves Captain_1 to the draw room where Captain_1 picks a hand for a coin – right or left.

  • Then Captain_2 is moved to the room: he attempts to guess a hand in which coin is.

  • If Captain_2 picks correct hand (wins a draw), Captain_1 starts to eliminate a plane-group (2.3) or a format of an additional round (5.6)

  • If Captain_2 picks incorrect hand (loses a draw), he starts to eliminate a plane-group (2.3) or a format of an additional round (5.6)

  • A draw winner defines the side Axis/Allies


Note: Team that is written first in the schedule gets formal definition – Team_1 (Captain_1). The other team – Team_2 (Captain_2).


2.19 A match starts according to the time and date. Absent players or technical unavailability of teams are not reasons for which a judge should delay the match. In special cases an arbiter can wait for several minutes before starting it. Special notifications are written by an arbiter in the lobby of the match once there is 5 minute before start:

  • Attention! 5 minutes before start!

  • Attention! 30 seconds before start!
    (Mission start)

  • 5 sec.

  • Start!
