You didn't miss it, did you?
Once again a notoriously frightening OneLife Event created by "I'll-test-in-the-evening" Arnoldio took place.
It has been a ball shaking experience again and we know you can't wait to see some footage from it. Of course this match has been recorded by deviro. This time it's going to be double POV with additional footage made by Siltics.
We would like to thank everyone who helped realizing this great event. Special thanks goes out to our tech guys Sloan and tobi-the-fraggel and our whole admin team. This wouldn't be the event it is without your contribution.

First of all, due the downtime of realitymod.com we were not able to post an announcement about the ending of Operation 2 and because the first battle of Operation 3 has already been played, you will get a report of this battle as well.
The battle for Grozny finished the second Operation and can be reviewed HERE. Both teams started with a cautious deployment, settling in along the river dividing the map, probing for opportunities. When APN managed to breach the defensive line and establish a bridgehead, they seized the opportunity and forced EMC to abandon their positions, securing a strong position on the other side of the river. While EMC came close to retaking the area during multiple offensives, APN managed to hold their firm grip on the territory, closing the battle with a 201 ticket lead....
It was brought to our attention approx 2 weeks ago that one our QA members was using QA debug commands on a debug enabled server during a clan/community competitive event. Although there is no proof of ill intent (and the member outed themselves by posting video of them trying to help spot a glitcher during the event) we still take the very action of exercising the debug commands on the server as a serious matter.
This was definitely a breach of trust committed against us OWI and in a different way against the community. We have taken time to consider the outcomes and have decided on the following actions to ensure: 1. The person in question is punished for the actions taken (regardless of intent) 2. OWI and the community are protected from this happening again.
1. The offending QA member has been demoted and will be on probation with OWI for the next 6 months. Any additional issues will result in the members removal from QA.
The first battle of the second operation has been played!
This battle saw excellent use of stationary assets from both teams, from using TOWs by EMC to Machine Gun emplacements by APN. EMC lead in tickets almost the entire round, but APN fought admirably, you can watch it all back here
Ultimately the game went to EMC with a final score of 0 - 187.
We are currently playing Operation Stronghold, as you can see on our operation page, the second map of this operation is Grozny....
