Yup. On special events, or FSO, when the call 'Tally Ho' goes out I always get a shudder.
This is it boys!

Same here... I love flying FSOs.  Always gives me that chill when, after flying for an hour and seeing nothing, then all of a sudden...."Bandits!!! 3 o'clock high!!!"

  For those who's skeptical and say "It's just a game, who cares?", don't post... that will just start a flame war.

Do you get those chills down your spine while playing? Those moments when you're playing and get a random chill about the fact that you're basically seeing what a World War 2 pilot is seeing?

Not even close.  I'm sure every "world War 2 pilot" had many physical sensations..doubt chills up/down the Spine was one of them.  :)

Or do you realize that you're playing a game... where killing people is something you do EVERYDAY?

I never forget it's just a game, nor do I look at it as "killing people"...it's simply my skill (or lack thereof in most instances) against someone else.

I just had one of those moments after landing my 109 (sitting there on the runway, if anyone saw me).

Hmm, what `cha got stashed under your seat boy .  :rofl

When I was flying with my squad in one of the recent FSO's (the one before Der Zweite Blitz) It was just routine cruising, gaining altitude, not much activity on vox, then all of a sudden, "Enemy dive bombers and fighters closing in on the carrier! Alt is 1k! All planes break off your climbs and get to C22 ASAP!" I got this weird feeling of, "Here we go!" I crashed my F4F while trying to rearm at an airfield on Guadacanal. Oh well, it was still fun.

   I was flying alone, where the muppets were buzzing around in 262s with training wheels on tonight, but I noticed the dar-bar up north shift east to west (we were south). hmm, buff raid.. start flying NW to see whats going on. Sure enough, 6 solo B24s hauling tail with a Nik and 110 escorting all at about 16k, me in my pony at 19k..

   Their target was a field 1 sector south so they had a trip with me there,  I spent the next 15 mins flaming each of them one at a time with that escort nik always 800 - 1.5 off trying to catch me... the 110 finally dove on the city but I stayed on the last 2 24s

   after the last liberator burned up the nik got entangled with someone else and I finally engaged also & got him too with my last 42 peanuts outta my P-51D

   no sweating hands or super tension, no chills,  but it felt like job well done to land em all and clock out.

  So after 17 years of playing online multi player flight sim games, I can still get a bit of pleasure from it.

Personally for me its like others have said, during events like FSO where you are searching for enemies forever and you finally here over the radio "cons 12 0 clk co alt, DT's away" I get really excited and think to myself I wonder if this is what it was like for the real pilots of ww2.

Stodd said it best...  and I am sure that he will remind me that I said that, everytime he sees me in FSO. pause to check the FSO objectives that just came to my email.  Ahhh  Stodd is Allied and I am Axis.  He will have to wait for at least 4 weeks!

Speaking of FSO, minor hijack-sorry.  The optional mission sounds like fun.  A rotten fighter stick like myself won't be chosen for it though.
