Basic Rules and Things to be Aware of for Offline Competing
(These Don't quite have an order yet)


The following is what most people do, I'm not enforcing anyone to compete like this, it's just how basic competitions have worked.




Rule 1:
When first posting that you will enter a competition/ tournament you must have the following things
1 - The game

2 - The majority of ACS playes on ACE mode so, you better have unlocked that. To unlock ACE mode you need to beat expert mode.

3 - In relation to rule 2, once in ACE mode you must be able to fly in Free Mission, so that you can chose missions with ease.

4 - A camera or anything that can take digital photographs, which will be discussed below.

Rule 2:
Nowadays, screen-shots are a must when it comes to offline competing due to TRUST problems. So a photo of you're scores, times and aircraft should be uploaded to you're friendly image hosting website to share with AC. (If you do not know which screen to take a photo of, it is the final screen at the end of every mission that shows your scores, times, etc.)

Rule 3:
You're late you're out. If there's a deadline and you hand in your scores late, you're out. That's what deadlines are for people.

Rule 4:
Who Wins and Who Loses:
Winner is the one with the highest score. If there is a tie in score then the person with the fastest time wins.

Rule 5:
No Super planes. No Morgan, Falken, etc.

Rule 6: IMP: Read Directions!!!
Provided by: Firegal The person who creates the competition decides what the winning criteria are. Many missions have max scores, so to keep things interesting it could be lowest score or fastest time instead of highest score. The most important thing is for the competitors to read the directions!

Anything else I miss?

One-on-one challenges follow the same basic rules.

* Ace Skill Level
* No superplanes (Wyvern, Falken, Morgan, Nosferatu)
* Single mission challenges, unless previously agreed upon.
* Full-screen screenshots are required, again unless previously agreed upon to not require them.
* The screenshot should have a 3 x 5 index card or piece of paper showing in the bottom right corner (because there is nothing of value displayed there in any of the games) that has the participant's name, along with the game and mission and the date the mission was flown. We ask for this to ensure that it's a recent attempt and not a record you set 5 years ago.

Traditionally, the challenger picks the Mission and win conditions, and to offset this, the one being challenged can pick the aircraft he will use, unless something different has been agreed upon.

A judge is not absolutely necessary, if both participants post their screenshots, or even if they agree that screenshots are not necessary. However, past problems with people cheating have shown the wisdom of having a judge review the screenshots sent to them via PM and announcing the winner.

Good Luck, everyone!
