Someone in a Python, in the low CZ in Azrael offered to let me wing, I was just reading the invitation when the ship went back into low wake, and no I do not know how that happened except that I had to press the button more than once to drop out of it.

Anyway, if that was 'you' I was not ignoring you :) but when I got back to the CZ you had gone.

Taking about joining someone's wing, what do I expect when I agree? How does that affect things? Do I get my targets selected for me? Thanks

When you are in a wing, you will both receive the bounty/combat bonds for any ships that you both (or all, in the case of wings of 3-4) fire on and destroy. Typically, it's best to focus on the same targets and kill them together as a team.

Your targets will not be selected for you. The best way to select your wingman's target is to setup a few simple hotkeys.

I use F1-F3 for "select wingman" and F4 for 'wingman's target'. When winged up, you'll need to hit your hotkey for the wingman first, then your hotkey for his target, even if you only have one wingman. Having this setup in your bindings will make you a more successful wingman. :)

This screenshot shows you what your screen will look like when you are in a wing (but your HUD colors are probably different).

Image

The two icons at the top center of the screen (in this case, Cyberofh and Varn Draal) shows rings for my wingmen's shield condition, and hull condition below that. Below their commander names shows the ship that they have targeted. In a CZ, it will just show generic navy names, so that's why it's important to setup the hotkeys mentioned above. Otherwise, it's hard to know which opposing NPC your wingman has selected to kill.

I hope that helps a little.

I should be logging into the game in about an hour, and bringing the Vette to Azrael if anyone (of any combat skill level ) would like to wing up. :evil:

According to my contact history, that was probably me. I tend to throw out a wing invite, but if there is no answer, I assume that either instancing is screwed up or the other person is not interested. In that case, I immediately re-instance to avoid the whole kill-steal drama thing.

We are now leading 58% to 0% against Azrael Patron's Principles, and pickings in the low CZ at least are getting slim. What annoys me is that the missions on offer from OoM are all of the "help the cooperative by delivering" type with small influence increase, while our opponents offer lots of civil war missions with large influence increase. :x

Well the low CZ was quite busy today. 3M in an hour or so. Winged up with Cmdrs erazor and hull chap. Good fun

Even my rookie AI made it to Expert! I am proud of her although she burned through 8 Taipans in an hour...

At least we took control of all the stations at home. Now to take over Njiri!
