Poorly planned mission event 7 Oct 2011

Postby Buehgler_AS » Fri Oct 07, 2011 1:56 pm

Folks,

I had hoped to plan a proper mission event for this Friday (that's today), but a variety of real-life (tm) activities have made that just about impossible. Anyway, there are two new missions that we have not seen that I was considering for this. The first looks like a nice "classic" ambush and capture the HVT scenario, details at this link. The second mission I was considering is this one. This is probably a bit more involved than the first, but looks to fit our style.

If you are available this evening and interested please post here along with time availability and mission/role preference -- I had been thinking we could aim to start sometime between 2300-0100 Zulu. I think we will need at least 4-6 people committed to this event for it to work, so if that does not happen I will post this more "properly" for sometime next week.

I should be online at ~2330 Zulu, and will be happy to fill any role.

I can be on for awhile, have "drive to airport duty" @2700zu.
As for missions... do we really need to kill the goat >:( ....



PS, will we need to update server/clients with Robs fix for non ACE missions ;12 etc...?

Sounds good, will join at 2330 then. OK with any team role.

I was thinking about setting up something like this on my server sometime, would give me a chance to test the current mod development better too.

Ok I think we have 5 people. Let's plan to start at 2400 when Firefly arrives.

KK, I would love to have Rob's tweaks on server for this, but I have not had time/opportunity to coordinate with him to get them there. I will see if I can use the 30-60 minutes I should have before we try to insert to tweak the missions with crates at insert.

Sounds like KK will have goat stew duty, and Kantari will be acting as squad leader :)

Sounds like a suicide mission to me ;) I never liked leading missions, and considering I have played three times in the last 16 months, I don't think it would be wise to let me lead anything.

Sorry Kantari, we were just kidding. We missed you last night.

Given the poor planning things went decently. Unfortunately KK left just before we started and never came back, and the first (ambush) mission failed to start correctly (objectives failed instantly -- possibly an ACE compatibility issue). We then played a bit of Bravo 2-0, but that proved a bit tedious as there was a LOT of terrain to search for the objectives. Krast did attempt to join us, but he was deviled by technical issues that we were sadly unable to resolve on line. Finally we switched to a Zagrabad ambush mission that probably had the correct scale and length for us, but everyone was getting a bit tiered and we had difficulty dealing with some armor threats early, leading to failure and sleep.

I will try to organize a similar gathering next week (probably Saturday), so keep your eyes open.

I got knocked out when mother nature downed the power lines. Look forward to doing it again.
