Name you favorite drink while blasting away at your enemy in EAW.

Don't laugh to loud, but mine is A&W Root Beer. The Doc won't let me drink the real stuff any more. Sniff Sniff

It depends on certain factors.

Normal flying: water, iced tea (especialy in the summer. Sometimes Guinness hits the spot, but too much usually ends up with me making craters.

Late night flying: cappucino (instant), good ol US Navy coffee (black as night, and hot as hell) Dr. Pepper, Mountain Dew, iced expresso.

When flying for the RAF during the Battle of Britain, I prefer a cuppa tea, mate!

Most flying done online.

Early evening: often a coke.

If I go for an all nighter it is often in weekends and I can then have some beers (Vestfyen Pilsner - not that any of you have ever heard of it), and in the end of one of those nights, I tend to change to good old milk , yes.

Never coffee. Don't like it.

Well, of course ol' Bushmill's (black label aka Black Bush) hits the spot esp on these cold Maine nights, but if I'm going to be flying, Lipton's Brisk does it for me. Now mind you a good cup of Green Mountain Breakfast Blend will open the eyes and improve the hand-eye co-orindination (just the thing when facing 20-30 emils).

So all depends what I'm hankerin' for.

Check six & aim for the cockpit.

Mein Herren, it all depends on the situation. If I'm flying offline against the AI then I drink as much Rolling Rock or Yeungling Porter as humanly possible, it helps even the odds for the silly fellows.

Online however...I drink as much Rolling Rock or Yeungling Porter as humanly possible, it helps...Ach Himmel!

Actually on weeknights either Pepsi or Iced Tea (homemade of course) and on weekends...Well see above.

Ice Cold Draught Guinness from the fridge or a glass of chilled white wine after I've finished playing online which is usually waiting for me by the bed after a bath to ease the tension of online dogfighting.

To be honest, I don't drink anything while at my PC. I'm always worried I'll spill it in the worst possible place. Plus, my hands are usually too busy yanking a joystick and fingering the keyboard. Perhaps if I had a third hand! Yeah, that's the ticket!

Leeman,

The ultimate gaming rig is composed of the VonBroam Genetic Engineering Labs "Multi Limb Gaming Refit"(TM) This handy process which is available for only 1,959,595.95 $(US) takes 6 months and refits the gamer with the number of limbs that Bill Gates intended for him to have. By careful manipulation of the existing genetic code we here at the VonBroam Genetic Engineering Labs have found a way to squeeze 4 extra arms into the human frame. This is the perfect outfit for gaming, one hand for the joystick, one hand for the throttle, one hand for those obscure keyboard commands, one hand for the mouse, one hand to hoist the frosty Guinness to your lips, and one hand to track down those irritating itches that come from not moving from the computer for 48 hours. All this and you can impersonate Hindu Dieties and your favorite costume parties too.

VonBroam out
Semper Fidelis

Hmmm... while blasting away on EAW? that does limit it some.

Hardly a phot exists of me without either a cigarette (my heart doctor would faint) or a cup of coffee or both in my mitts.

As I tell the other fellas in the 56th while waiting for take-off on the flight line, "This 'ole boy cain't fly right lest he's got a mug of marine corps coffee (aint strong enuff lest ye ken float a bullet on it) his pack o'cigarettes, and his boots off so' as he can curl his toes round the rudder pedals for better grip."

The other 5% of the time, when not in the "real" world of EAW,

A 20 oz. French Vanilla cappucino when i stop for gas on the way home.

Once in a blue moon, a 12-pack of Foster's when I want to get mellow.

And when I take the missus out on anniversaries and the like, a nice strong double gin & tonic utilizing Tanqueray or Beefeaters gin. But that's real rare since I'm usually driving.

I often start with coffee, if I get a chance to start flying early, say 7 or 8:00.

If I have to work, I'll drink beer, knowing I need to shut down by 1 a.m. or so anyway.

On the weekend, or if I'm flying online, I'll limit the booze and have instead a few coffees or colas.

In my opinion, flying in EAW requires sobriety, unless of course you're just having a relaxing night off, trying different aircraft, or single missions. I love to drink in general but when I'm in the virtual cockpit, I can always tell when I've had too much beer or bourbon. Forget to check six one more time, forget to put the flaps back up, you know.

I come in too fast and snap my landing gear once in a while when I'm sober for crying out loud.

Greg Boyington and Tommy Blackburn put down a lot of bourbon but not in the cockpit. Cigarettes? I recently quit. But the Blacksheep said they always knew when Pappy spotted a bogey since he would throw his burning smoke out and slam the canopy shut.

Good hunting.
