About YSFlight GroupsEdit

Virtual YSFlight Groups have been around ever since the beginning of YSFlight. The earliest English-speaking YSFlight groups were created by Jacn, back when YSTK was still online.

YSFlight groups can be based on many things. Most combat oriented groups, however, are organized squadrons , and usually have their own addon packs and maps, flying styles, and mission objectives. Civilian groups have also formed, including virtual SAR, cargo transport, virtual airlines, all the way to drug dealers and fighter-police.

In 2011, a new type of squadron was created known as a personal squad. These squads consisted of 2-4 members and were strictly casual play, without any set rules for training or initiation.

Squadron WarsEdit

Combat Squadrons may not always agree with each others ideas and would sometimes settle differences by engaging in wars, which is partly what shapes the combat side of Virtual YSFlight Groups. These wars may often be driven by squad politics or domination, and may often take place spontaneously across the servers with no formal competition planning, weapon balance and player balance (i.e. it is different from a planned squadron competition). The significance of these scenarios may vary, depending on which squadrons are involved, how many squadrons are involved, how many players from each squadron are involved and how long the war goes on for.
