  • Albasrah (64p) Modifactions -- part II

    Based on the feedback from the public thread we're going to try another setup for Albasrah 64p. From the previous poll the most votes were to try something new followed closely by those who wanted to keep the current setup. So this is an attempt to keep the same flow with some minor tweaks.

    These changes have been installed on the server.



    • All flags start out as insurgent flags except the US UCB
    • Remove one A10 (leaving one)
    • Remove one Cobra (leaving one)


    Group One
    • Airport (US UCB)


    Group Two
    • Village (can only be capped by US)
    • North VCP
    • Industry (can only be capped by US)

    This allows the Insurgents to put up a fight in the sand to bleed US, but they will take a pounding from superior weapons / vehicles. The US keeps the two desert CPs once secured. Industry remains contestable.

    Group Three
    • South VCP (can only be capped by US)
    • Facility
    • Mosque

    This effectively puts four flags into play (these three plus Industry). However, once the US has secured all CPs surrounding the city (i.e. Industry & South VCP) then the USMC is rewarded by retaining South VCP and therefore Industry. The fight then continues on Facility and Mosque.

    Group Four
    • Suburbs
    • Palace


    Bleed
    This is a single assault map so we want the US to have to fight an uphill battle to stop bleed. They have superior weapons and are rewarded for progressing to the city. Bleed stops for the US once they have captured Facility OR Mosque. The Insurgents will then begin to bleed slowly once Facility AND Mosque are captured. If suburbs or Palace is captured, then the insurgents will bleed badly.

    these modifications look like they will work well, it prevents the US from being pushed back to NVCP and SVCP

        This look really great; I can't wait to play it. Ever change made thus far to this map drastically affects the gameplay even when all of the players are aware of the AAS setup.

        I have a tendency to key out three or four things and then let them battle for supremacy while I key, so there's a lot of backspacing as potential statements are slaughtered and eaten by the victors. ~

            If this is the setup we played a few hours ago, it's pretty good. We had a hard, but not unwinnable, fight on the US team. I don't recall which side won but it was definitely one of the best matches I've played on the map.

              Wow, these changes look great. I'm very excited for this, as Al Basrah is my favorite map on 32p and almost on 64p. Too bad it's tough to do anything about people waiting at the airfield for choppers or the A-10 that spawns every ten minutes...

                Meh. Those people would just get in the way where we're trying to operate. :)

                  Sad to see the birds wings clipped but I like how the groups can be locked down once captured.

                  This is going to make things harder for insurgents I think, it'll be a close thing between this and the last version for a fair game
                  We've had some close games on that old version recently - there was an awesome insurgent defence of industry with usmc repelled multiple times only yesterday. We won by only 40 points.
                  Seems like that was good practise because industry will be more vital then ever


                  If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.

                    Thanks for implementing these new settings. The flag cap layout sounds wonderful and should do a great job concentrating the action while keeping a nice flow.

                      I'm of the mind that the A-10s should be scrapped altogether and to bring back both Cobras...how much are the Blackhawks really used, anyways? Maybe take one of those out and/or replace with a Littlebird.

                      Anyways, this sounds intriguing; can't wait to play and see!

                              The USMC team had a lot of trouble capping Industry. It was far too impossible. USMC was out in the open, while the Insurgents had numerous spots to hide. For more then half the time of playing, there was so much smoke I couldn't see anything. The upside was that they couldn't see us either. So once we traveled through the smoke and into the Facility, the Insurgents just camped the sides and we immediately died. I got blown up with C4s twice. It really was a pain in the ass.
