  • [EVENT] FNF - Friday August 22nd 2014

    About time we had another formally organized FNF.

    My objective for the night will be to give the tactics described in this thread a stress test. To summarize: we will attempt to counter the inevitable surge of defenders in the final minutes of an offensive capture by reducing our population footprint in the territory in question to limit the number of reinforcement spawns available, and controllably ramp up our presence to maintain a population advantage despite the flow of reinforcements.

    What this means in terms of the overall tempo of the night is that I'm going to be preferentially putting on attack in low population territories and keeping uncommitted forces outside the territory as reserves (and likely rotating which squad is on point). From a platoon makeup perspective, we're going to need large numbers (3+ squads of infantry would be ideal) mostly focused around airborne infantry. We'd also be well served with a squad serving as air support, either on the far edge of the territory interdicting incoming galaxies or vehicles attempting to reinforce the old fashioned way, or on standby for quick A2G attack runs on the base itself.

    Kickoff will be at 9:00pm Eastern. Please advertise this throughout the week, I'd love to have enough people to give this strategy an honest go.

    Comments: Perhaps attacking multiple bases to further distract enemy focus preferable. Means to redeploy to primary target on demand would need discussed.

      That's a good thought, and it'd also help people from getting bored waiting on call... though it'd possibly slow it down a bit AND prevent MAX usage. We'll have to try it both ways and see what works!

          Unless you want to call this training, I suggest you hold training for this prior to game night.

            No training required, we already know how to do airborne infantry pretty well, the core of this is just order of deployment and squad tasking, which is pretty much just on the PL's shoulders.

                    Someone else will have to take the reins next week! I'll be at PAX exhibiting my game and will be hard pressed to run a platoon. ;)

                      The question foremost in my mind is "what will bring the most tactical fun to the server?"

                        Comment: I love this idea. Certainly a real life tactic of having a small sof team carry out an op with a large airborne contingent waiting in the distance in case any issues arise.

                              Agreed. I enjoyed running the Gal for drops, I really needed some flight time in there since I spent the few thousand certs needed to make it work. Notes on my personal performance, I need to improve my drop calling, and slowing down an Auraxian Sky Whale is no trivial matter. :-)

                              Another note: Tank buster rounds hurt like the dickens.
