The 1stROF is founded in 1997 by Lapwin and Zepher and is inspired by the dutch 322nd Sqn who flew the Spitfire in WW2.
Back on those days we flew a online-combat flightsimulator called “Warbirds”. Warbirds 2 to be exact and this is where we originally formed as an official Squadron.
After a few years we had our first squadron meeting. Not long after we invited friends & Foes to join us during these meetings. This is where the Eurocon was born. A (nowadays called) LAN party with 40 enthusiasts with joysticks. Now, more than 20 years later we still play games together weekly and have our 4-day EuroCon event every year.
The days of Online-Flying however are gone. We have tried several other games like Aces High, WW2Online, IL2, Warthunder – you name it – but we weren’t able to find that fun and commitment we had a long time ago. That didn’t stop us from playing. We play(ed) Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, World of Warships, World of Tanks, World of Warcraft and Armed Assault. Basically games with guns and wheels.
We simply play games we like to to. Host our own private TeamSpeak and ARMA3 Game server and generally try to have good time.
