Monday Night madness is like going to your favorite bar! its fun, its exciting

all your friends are there, and everyone talked to each other!

We use all midwar planes only. some are easy mode, some are not.

join us for Monday Night Madness in the AVA starting at 8pm EST.

every week there are more and more players coming to check this out!

Pilots are trying to fly in the fog, between buildings,

all the while checking your 6, gets very very intense. plane parts flying everywhere!!

If you're not that good, don't worry about it. we'll help you get better.

It"s great for training, for situational awareness and how

to become a better pilot. it will help you whip some butt in the MA! you wont be sorry.

Hot pilot to beat this week is TShark, for being the best pilot in Monday night madness last week!

come in and see if you can take that title from him! he's almost very good!

Good crowd in there tonight - even saw Badboy, who I've not encountered (and been bested by) since before AW died.  Must have been WAY past his bedtime.

Those of you who have never tried this should make an effort to stop in.

New clouds were neat

Need to keep MA kill messages on as it produces humorous comments from some

What about adding IL2, 190a5, p40 and other yaks next week?

Thanks again for hosting this!

The IL2, 190A-5 and P-40E would be good additions to the plane set. Kill messages don't really seem to add much too me. We've had fun all these years without them; leave them for MA.

I might make it next week. The 205 is kind of interesting.

I know I've seen a few people immediately complain the time or two the kill messages got switched on in there in the past.  I'm inclined to say leave them off too.  I really don't much care one way or the other but I know they're a hot button for some.

I like the additions Eagler suggested too.

Eastern Front without P-39s would be like a day without sunshine.

Or something like that.

 Great to see numbers going up.

 One thought however. With increasing numbers, maybe a slightly larger arena?

Nope. Keep it small. Nowhere to hide.

 With all due respect Wiley, no one comes here to "hide". We all come to fight, learn acm and sa.

  When their were maybe 10-12 or so in here it was a blast. Arena size imho was good. With 20-25 it seems a bit  crowded.
 
  Jaeger says this arena will help us learn sa and acm. True. I think it is just a little too small with increasing numbers. No one who comes  into this arena hides as far as I have seen. We all fight and die.

It's about  flying and fighting. No one hides. No score, just fun.

Which is exactly why I was surprised to see the "pilot to beat" line coming up every week.

I mean really.... who cares.   :D

Yep, I was already falling asleep at the keyboard when I logged in, but the action was so intense and action packed, the Adrenalin rush wakes you up faster than a bucket of ice water.

The time passed so quickly there were only two guys left in there when I logged. I hit the sack around 4am.

As I got into bed, my Wife asked "What's that big silly grin about?"

"Just another great night in Aces High" I whispered back.

Nice to see you again Oldman  :salute

I guess we just mostly fly at different times?

Yep, but I should have logged right after you flew me into that building... Some great flying right there Sir  :salute

And a big thank you for letting me know about Monday Night Madness. It's more fun than watching the French air force crashing into a firework factory.
