    PRTA Presents: Contact! Off-season Battle | 1700 UTC, Saturday 25th of April 2020

    Contact! - Offseason Battle

    [​IMG]

    The first Contact! Off-season Battle appeared to have been great fun! Now it's time to move ahead and prepare for the 2nd off-season battle!

    How it works
    Two commanders will be selected from the Commander sign ups and two teams will be built from individual, group and squad sign ups.

    The Commanders will be assigned to a team 2 hours before the scheduled start of the battle. They will be responsible for preparing a deployment plan as well as directing the battle with help of their squad leaders, hopefully promoting both communication and coordination across the whole team.

    Only one map will be played out of a pool of 2 maps. This map will be announced to the teams only 2 hours in advance of the battle.

    In order to play you can sign up one of three ways: as an individual, as a group of up to 3 men or as a full squad of 6 men plus 2 reserves. Commanders will have the final say on the number of slots for each squad in their Team. More information on sign ups can be found below.

    Teamspeak presence on the day of the battle is mandatory. Be present in Battle Waiting Room at least half an hour before the scheduled battle start so that the commanders can inform you of the deployment plan and for the Administration to sort any last minute issues that may arise.

    Well, panty can't do it for you. Ask them and find out. It is impossible to balance teams if we don't know how many show up. If you won't ask your group, don't sign up a group.
    If not, just sign up as one player.

    Do not name anyone you haven't spoken with/confirmed their ability or willingness to participate.

    I was lax with the sign ups for the first off-season battle, but I cannot repeat that same mistake again where sorted people/squads suddenly disappear, are late, cannot attend or where players were named without being asked first and don't want to play.

    For the sake of sanity, team balance and starting the battle on time, when creating a group or a squad, ask the people if they want to play and then add them once you are satisfied with the number of people you can bring. Yes, you might be limited by slots within your squad, but knowing who you can bring can help a lot with balancing when we know the players within the group and their ability to perform well in different roles. Not to mention that it makes it easier to move reserves if necessary.

    Hablam squad sign ups are limited to 8 people (6+2 reserves). I have put your latest 2 mentions as a group and will take them into consideration when setting up the teams with the commanders.
