    Here is a little game that is played on a forum that I frequent (although it has to do with music). I will put this in the "Off topic" thread.

    This is sort of a Battle of the Aircraft.

    Basically 7 aircraft will be put into a list. Each one starts off with 20 points. Every post a user must "kill" and "save" an aircraft. When you "kill" an aircraft you remove 2 points, and when you "save" an aircraft you give it 2 points. When an aircraft reaches 40 points it is added to the Hall of Fame, when an aircraft reaches 0 points it is added to the Hall of Shame.

    A user can only vote (Kill and Save) in this thread once per day. So you can not vote 5 times for the same aircraft in the same day. Once an aircraft is in the Hall of Shame or Hall of Fame it can no longer be voted on or added again to the list.

    The list can contain aircraft from any type (fighter, bomber, transport ect).

    Bf 109G - 20
    Hawker Hurricane - 20
    Ilyushin Il-2 - 20
    PZL P.11 - 20
    Farman F.220 - 20
    Douglas C-47 - 20
    P-40 Warhawk - 20

    Yeap that is how it is done.

    When a user "kills" or "saves" an aircraft to either 0 or 40 points, they move them to the Hall of Shame or Hall of Fame and then they add another plane to the list, so that there are always 7 planes in the list. The planes that have not reached 0 or 40 stay in the list.

    Man, the Farman is going down. This is a lot better than "Bf 109 vs B-52" threads!

    Just don't forget to move them to either Hall of Fame or Hall of Shame and add another aircraft.

    Hi Marcel!

    Bf 109G - 28 Kill
    Hawker Hurricane - 26
    Ilyushin Il-2 - 16
    PZL P.11 - 18
    Farman F.220 - 12
    Douglas C-47 - 22
    P-40 Warhawk - 20

    ...how are the different aircraft chosen for the selection? Seems a bit arbitrary.

    Read the first post. It is all random.

    It is only for fun, there is no need to think this is something against the French. :lol:

    Thats not what I was thinking. I simply thought it was an odd assortment of aircraft - 4 fighters of varying ages, one transport, one attack aircraft, and one obsolecent bomber. Didn't know if there was something related or not.

    Dont think so much into it. It's all fun and totally random. Any aircraft can be in there at any time as long as there is only 7 at any one time.
