Apologies for the post running a bit stale these past two weeks. PFC Thomas and I hit some hiccups with Life things and as such we have not been able to continue our joint efforts.
Without Further adieu I am happy to announce that the developers working on our loved Antistasi scenario have just released their latest (and greatest)
FULL RHS AFRF integration along with a multitude of improvements.
This may mean our campaign has been (or may need to be) wiped and started over. I am sure our fearsome fighters will once again come to the call and ride out into the sunset together in a fearsome rendition of Romeo and Juliet where or lovely enemies are stars crossed lovers and we are their poison come to end it all it a fantastical, wild, and gripping struggle. A perilous tale ripe with strife and bitter success. (too far? eh maybe a little). After all we only secured the North West portion of the island. The rest WILL be taken before we move to the new islands of Tanoa.
They're already working on adding Tanoa to their playable maps. I myself am super excited for the opportunity to shake things up and get down and dirty with an unfamiliar terrain. (Soon to come within the next couple (few) months)
As before our Friday/Saturday play will continue. Be sure to add myself or PFC Thomas on steam (Burkardt or PFC Thomas) for information on delays/expected start time for that day.
Having that said our usual times are Friday afternoon around 7pm Eastern-10ish
and saturdays 9am Eastern-12 and usually the afternoon.
We are flexible in our times.
Welcoming of Drop in/Drop out playing
and always looking for me people to join us.
I don't feel like I quite did the latest patch justice in my short description so here are the raw change log notes (They're pretty rad):
Update: 6 July @ 00:15am
New version 1.4a uploaded to the Coy. server.
Splendid Chief! I'll be hopping in this week to do a little poking around and give a final status update before we launch Friday. This time around, it seems we will have to much more careful about how we traverse the land with the addition of sniper teams supporting towns, and mortar emplacements on the camo net outposts. truly exciting.
The snipers haven't been much of a problem, considering half the time they just walk around in the center of town along with the regular AAF/Russians.
Agreed PFC Bae. The sniper teams we have faced have been grouped with larger forces. It now seems via patch notes that they will be their own 2 man patrols around towns. Potentially providing a more unexpected attack. Their accuracy has been quite atrocious so I'm not expecting significant changes there but the fact that we will encounter them in possibly largely open terrain or unfavorable conditions should lead to some noteworthy skirmishes.
Looks like our progress is still the same
THE GLORIOUS REVOLUTION ENDURES!
Since the Tanoa rollout version of Antistasi has been taking longer than I anticipated. In place of our weekly guerilla scenario. I will be designing and running a bi-weekly custom mission. These missions will attempt to emulate a more guerilla tactic approach without the limitations on what we can do. If you would like to join, I'm solidifying the time slot to Saturday afternoons. This will be taking place an hour after CP2S1's drills. So we will be kicking off at 4pm EST and 2100 (9pm GMT). This is something to help me hone my mission making abilities and hopefully gives an outing to those who enjoy some down and dirty guerilla style warfare. I invite all of you to come out and when the Antistasi Tanoa version rolls out we may be switching over. Depending on how these custom missions go. That being said the 1st week we start this will be Saturday September the 3rd. Spread the word and hope to see you there!
Edit: I'll also be loading a briefing of what we will be doing BEFORE the drill in this post. So as soon as we get loaded in we will be doing a short brief so we can start as quickly as possible. Expected run times for missions will be 1-2 hours. With multiple objectives and respawns mid-way through or at key points. The goal is to have an action packed serious fun.
Cant wait PFC Burkardt
Also, Wanted to add. These missions will be mainly focused on PvZ. Players Vs. Zeus. I will be delegating command to whoever is present and willing. This is an opportunity for anyone to step up and (informally) try out leadership roles. I'll be focusing on how to make the missions better and intense while everyone can get some good experience. As always post here or pm me with any questions.
P.S. Post if you can make it. The missions will be scalable to the numbers that show. The more we have, the more I can throw into it.
It's a holiday weekend so I'll definitely be present!
Hope y'all will be there
September 3rd: Operation Iron Strike
Expected operation duration: 2 hours
AO: Northern valley of Passo Epone and Camp Santa Lucia - Grid ref: 140039, 122027
You are a contracted Private military company. Somewhere, someone very high is in need of a "delicate" political shift and a no strings attached fighting force to do his bidding.
You are that force.
United Sahrani? Not for long. There are movements happening in the world of super powers. This mission is purely on a need to know basis.
Here is what you need to know.
A military installation manned by local militia and armed by NATO is to be completely and utterly eradicated. There is to be no vehicle, man, or structure left standing.
This is about sending a message. You will make this message so incredibly clear it makes the great wall of china look like a paper mache kindergartner project.
This is phase one.
Phase two you will be sacking a military depot.
Several ammo caches exist and we will capture and return these to HQ.
Be prepared to face Armor, air, and infantry.
Questions about the objective?
//Expected enemy forces
Infantry, Heavy and light armor, QRFs consisting of infantry and Attack helicopters.
Ready for Operation IRON STRIKE. Woot Woot.
Why is the liaison wearing US Army uniform?
Should the PMC tighten this loose end at the end of the rounds?
All eyes in the intelligence services worldwide are fixed upon Sahrani
a shady PMC group intends to cast false blame.
Think it's time we put some skills to the test?
How well can you communicate and navigate?
come find out Saturday
Today's the day! If you're down to play bring some friends!
5pm EST, 2100 GMT
And remember, if you're going and bringing friends, be sure to inform me and/or PFC Burkardt so he can better prepare everything!
Correction on times because I can't do math.
5 pm EST (insert GMT equivalent). So less than 1 hour and we begin.
A HISTORY LESSON
4 September 2036, United Sahrani
Amidst an ongoing United Nations' peacekeeping mission in the recently united Constitutional Kingdom of Sahrani reports have been coming in regarding a clandestine CIS strike force hidden deep in the northern forests of the island. The UN Peacekeeping Task Force, constraint by its strict ROE and protocols have been rendered useless in investigating and dealing with this strike force. Rumours about a pretender for the throne have sparked panic for an another devastating civil war, and the presence of the CIS in this area isn't a good sign.
With the bulk of its armed forces tied up in the Pacific against a combined Russo - Chinese military presence, the US seemed inept for such a large concern on the island of Sahrani. The stabilizing situation on the Mediterranean island of Altis has allowed the US to replace a large portion of its 29th Infantry Division for other missions, one of which allegedly happened last night on Sahrani. An anonymous intelligence source belonging to the Stoic Prospect Private Military Company has leaked several compromising photos implicating of an active US military presence and definitive confirmation of the CIS strike force on Sahrani.
A picture of a Stoic Prospect task force inserting onto the northern shore of Sahrani.
The soldier on the left is wearing an US Army military uniform, however without identification patches it's impossible to know which unit he belongs to.
Definitive proof of the presence of Russian armored personnel carrier (APC) and main battle tanks (MBT), CIS officers can also be seen discussing.
Destruction of several CIS heavy artillery.
Deceased crews of a downed CIS helicopter taken out by Stoic Prospect.
Destruction of a CIS MBT by alleged US supplied weaponry.
Captured CIS officer.
With information pointing out to an increasingly complex situation developing on Sahrani, the fear about an another Syrian Civil War which resulted in the Great Nuclear Incident of 2017 has been on the rise. With the Pretender being supported by CIS forces and Stoic Prospect (allegedly) supplied by the US, all of the world now heeds from the United Nations and its Operation UNMIS as to what will happen next for the region.
Fantastic account of the event and great pictures. I am sorry I missed it.
*Great Nuclear Incident of 2017: a watershed event in world politics resulting from the Syrian Civil War: A North Korean-supplied nuke was detonated in the city of Aleppo with catastrophic results. The UN decided that it had had enough and decided to invade the region with ruthless force, bringing peace back to the region after 6 years of incessant conflict.
Angered by our recent activities in the field, our target has located our HQ in the field. The only worse news is this means we have a leak inside our organization. Getting straight to the point. reports came in that there is a massively mobilized force heading our way. Main HQ has vital intelligence and incriminating evidence. It must be saved
or completely wiped clean. No traces left behind. There are choke points our enemy must pass through. you will stop them before they reach HQ.
Or you will blow everything in it to oblivion.
Same time as the last operation!
Saturday 5pm EST.
As evening rolls into darkness the eerie rumble of thunder and following silence rock the night like a lullaby. Perched in the dilapidated fortress anxiously you wait.
Mission is go. I repeat, Mission is go.
Finally the wait is over. The slick icy metal beneath your gloves brings the comfort of familiarity as you climb into the BTR.
Ignition. Lights. Weapons Check.
Nudging the transport forward, beneath you the mud churns and smears but eventually gives way.
You adjust your grip one last time before rolling down the mountain valley roads into the fog knowing that you aren't the only ones out here looking for the traitorous insider. Two hours. That's all you've got.
Cold. Wet. Battle worn.
Like a broken record the mission repeats in your mind. . .
Or blow it to oblivion.
heh. . .so this is why they named it the Killing Fields.
I'd tell all of you on top to stay frosty but it looks like you're all freezing your assess off already.
Scattered chuckles amongst the squad let you know that spirits are high. For now.
The fog engulfs the convoy and with every inch forward it thickens along with insurmountable dread.
Doubt in oneself an be overcome.
Doubt in the mission is deadly.
See you on the other side HQ.
Alpha team is rolling out.
Radio silence until RTB.
Event will be starting 1 hour later than usual today! (6pm EST)
Switching back to other Events, Tanoa Antistasi has been going swell!
(screen shots to follow)
wow this is epic
From the ashes we will rise
Whispers echo across the land.
With each, a gun in hand.
Deep in the Jungle a fire burns
Hot and Envious
Sweat, blood, and tears have been shed. And For What?!?
Today is the day that This. Tyranny. Ends.
No longer will we toil in the fields of misery
No longer will we cower under false shelter
NO LONGER WILL WE BE BROUGHT TO OUR KNEES
We stand together today.
We may die together tomorrow.
And perhaps, when enough blood is spilled and our enemy has had their fill
We can rest together.
In this life, or the next.
I soooo wish I would've asked PFC Thomas which server y'all were on before he hopped off Steam, I soooo would've loved to join you guys.. Looks like it was a great time though, excellent screenshots
