Guide Ad:

Whitesnake and Team Legacy maintains quite the intro Guide for pilots, which also includes advanced topics:

Welcome! The Legacy Instructional Series (LIS) is a resource to help new pilots begin the journey of honing their piloting and combat skills in Arena Commander. At the core are exercises that can be performed by the player solo or with other new pilots. There are also academic discussions of the mechanics of the maneuvers covered by the exercises, as well as compiled references to useful resources for new pilots, including other dogfighting tutorials. At Legacy Gaming, we hope you enjoy your initial experience in Arena Commander, and invite you to contact us or come chat with us on our TeamSpeak about any questions you might have.

To start off, here's a video of Legacy Gaming demonstrating the results of the training we do. While this was made after quite a bit of section tactics practice, much of which is a bit too advanced to be covered here, it's worth posting here to motivate new players and show them what's possible if they set their minds to training often.

New Squadron 42 Info

Squadron 42 is shaping up really well. (The cast has been set but they aren't announcing it yet. - Ed.) It has a really big story arc which will be split into a trilogy.

Episode 1 releases this year and has around 70 Wing Commander missions.

Formulated differently that Wing Commander. Here you can fly a space mission, land get out, get into a firefight, chase a pirate, and take off to get into a battle. That is one mission in SQ42 whereas in Wing Commander that would be 3-4 missions.

SQ42 Episode 1 will be about 20 missions, 20 hours of gameplay.

Episode 2 is what goes on behind enemy lines. Everyone who backed up to 6mil gets for free. (The Blastr leak a while back was the plot to this episode, Chris asked them not to publish that bit but apparently they forgot. - Ed.)

Episode 2 is (likely) 2016.

Episode 3 is 2017 (Actually Chris said be playing for the next couple of years, 2017 is a maybe. -Ed.)

Each episode is the equivalent of a huge CoD campaign

They're going to be shooting through the end of June.

Note: Publication delayed a day while we worked out some issues in the new format. Moving from a recording of a live show to a more produced (and condensed) format.
