    Congratulations to BGB for winning the second prep battle!

    After a major close quarter battle in the central flag, the BGB team is able to push RIF out and win the battle:

    YMVOeUE.png

    If this was a real battle, based on the number of flags both teams had. We would award 14 campaign points to BGB and 2 to RIF. Since this was the last preparation battle, the teams flipped a coin to decide who gets to choose the faction in the next battle, BGB won the coin toss

    Here is the admins perspective of the battle

    The battle started with extremely agressive deployment by RIF. This deployment lacks any plan for a squad to deploy to the city flag, and as such BGB gets access to the superior positions inside TV Station.
    Both attacks on the 3rd and 2nd flag for BGB by RIF is decimated by APCs, infantry and an AR mowing down a squad in the east city.
    1.gif

    After the initial deployment, both teams settle their positions and start moving squads into the center of the city to take TV Station. The fights are intense, with grenades, and rooftop fights making any advance almost impossible. Both teams Mortars send their respective volleys of rounds towards TV station hitting their foes and kicking up dirt in an already intense brawl.
    2.gif

    This battle rages on for a while. On either side of the map recon squads are disrupting mortars and rear movements. In one place BGB does everything right moving infantry ahead of their APCs leaving the mainbase, unfortunatly they miss a HAT kit on the flank destroying a Puma.
    3.gif
    After a long battle in the city, the RIF team is finally able to rectify their deployment mistakes and capture the flag. Right after capturing it, they immediatly move forward two squad. At that moment BGB prepares a counter attack, or is already in the city fighting the RIF team in close quarter battle. The counter attack is succesfull and they recapture the TV Station.
    4.gif
    After the RIF team overextends themselves, and the succesfull BGB counter attack. BGB is finally on the offensive, capturing both the TV station flag, taking out 2 APCs, and in a freak accident of kills takes out a chopper hovering above their APC. The driver with an AA kit makes quick effect of the RIF helicopter.
    5.gif
    The BGB team, now with much more confidence leave their positions in the city, and move to attack the final flag of the enemy. Both teams engage TOWs, Mortars, Infantry and IFVs in a massive all out fight. RIF mounts a sturdy defense, but the ticket losses during the battle has proven to much and the battle ends in favour of BGB.
    6.gif

    From the Admins perspective this was more exciting than the last battle, with twists and turns resembling an episode from Game of Thrones. There were a few things unmentioned, which had an effect on the battle. Namely the extremly effective HAT kit of the RIF team, the annoying BGB recon team, and a defense team on TV Station for team BGB that would shame the defenders of Pavlov's house anyday. Well done both teams, and congratulations to BGB for taking the win!

    I wanted to take this opportunity to thank tobi-the-fraggel for being available to do some technical support for the less technical on both teams. It made the whole experience a bit less stressful from my point of view.

    Thanks guys!

    It is a part of the job I did choose voluntarily, when applying for tournament-admin. Therefore let me highlight Wicca's efforts. Despite all his other jobs and duties, he also stepped forward, when the tournament needed a lead-admin and he's doing the job with dedication and his inimitable charm and attitude. That's much appreciated and the tournament does benefit from this a lot.

    Wicca and I decided to make a clear cut between tasks. I do focus on technical tasks and I plan to be present at least an hour before any battle happening. So if anyone needs a helping hand or just wants to have a chat about linux or play some 'shell golf', just take a stop in Tech Support channel on teamspeak to say hello. :smile:

    The prep battles did show great spirits and dedication by all participants and I hope we all have a ton of fun during the battles.

    See ya!

    which map pack is the correct one?
    Contact! Mappack.exe or Contact! Mappack.exe?
    They are labeled the same, but seem to be different.

    I did, but when I did seems to matter ....
    I get the feeling filename nomenclature is not a thing here because Contact! Mappack.exe is not the same as Contact! Mappack.exe
