Capturing castle was a costly ordeal for BGB, and even if they barely lost it in end the BGB team was able to win over RIF: We are awarding 5 points to RIF and 11 points to BGB after this battle. Here is the admins perspective of the battle The battle started with both teams sending their respective squads to castle, seemingly 1 each, however the BGB deployment was quite conservative and seemed more focused on map and flank control as opposed to getting inside the castle. RIF was easily able to take the castle with only a few BGB grunts trying to stop them. Further south the RIF team overextended and got two squads inside gas station and captured it. Spoiler: 1st Phase Soon after armor spawns in, and the only thing facing the Abrams is a lonely Namer, as one would expect the engagement doesn't last long. And due to some delays RIF is unable to field their armor in time to contest the central flag with their armor. Without any backup and BGB having the local superiority, the capture of Gas station is inevitable and soon the BGB team is in control of the west side of the map. Along with a well placed HAT player and a BGB armor thrust, the RIFs armor is quickly decimated. Spoiler: 2nd Phase Still holding on to castle, RIF mounts a heroic defense as wave after wave of BGB troops move to the entrances only to be met by RIF grenades, fully automatic guns and support weapons. The defense is indeed stiff and lasts almost an hour, but BGB having the initiative and area control methodically clears the surroundings and captures castle. Spoiler: 3rd Phase After a hard fight, the BGB team is reorganizing and launches a 2 pronged attack on Village. The combination of open terrain and prepared RIF defenders is enough to hold BGB at bay. This along with armor support gives the RIF team the ability to push BGB back to castle, with RIF taking back the momentum they lost in the beginning, and having the map control. Spoiler: 4th Phase Both is now down to less than a 100 tickets. RIF decides to go all in and organizes a mass air transport to get more than half their team on Castle to quickly overwhelm and capture the castle. Their plan is a success, but a reactive BGB team is able to stop RIF to completely capturing the flag. In the final moments of the battle RIF tries to take out an enemy tank holding up in a barn, smoking from multiple LAT hits, the strike fails as an AA takes down the Apache, ending the battle in favour of BGB. Spoiler: The final push for Castle From the Admins perspective I can see a pattern developing. Both teams are solidifying their traits with BGB working mostly on being generally offensive after the deployments and extremely aggressive, and RIF creating extremely aggressive battleplans. Both teams do these things almost to a fault! Either way, both teams are adapting and improving themselves and it will be interesting seeing the next battle after such an excellent performance from both teams in this battle, well done both teams! As a token of appreciation and based on the stats and accomplishments registered ingame the following ribbons have been awarded to both teams: Spoiler: MVP Ribbons BGB Specialists' MVP Ribbon C|BGB schakal711 RIF Specialists' MVP Ribbon C|RIF Puden Spoiler: BGB Infantry Ribbons Infantry's Survivor Ribbon C|BGB jybbe Infantry's Medic Ribbon C|BGB Woxbel C|BGB hellraizer C|BGB jybbe Infantry's Anti-Tank Ribbon C|BGB ploxdead Infantry's Anti-Air Ribbon C|BGB cantpicknameiwant Specialist Ribbons Specialists' Anti-Tank Ribbon C|BGB schakal711 Specialists' Anti-Air Ribbon C|BGB schakal711 Armour Ribbons Armour's Punisher Ribbon C|BGB Boiled-Lobster C|BGB Solid_fire93 C|BGB GLORYWINGS C|BGB SM69 Armour's Anti-Air Ribbon C|BGB GLORYWINGS C|BGB SM69 Spoiler: RIF Infantry Ribbons Infantry's Medic Ribbon C|RIF Temur-i-lang C|RIF Merf C|RIF rPoXoTauJIo Infantry's Anti-Air Ribbon C|RIF rPoXoTauJIo Infantry's Punisher Ribbon C|RIF Hellman[KorUA] Specialist Ribbons Specialists' Anti-Tank Ribbon C|RIF Hans_Strudel Armour Ribbons Armour's Punisher Ribbon C|RIF Hunter291 C|RIF Danesh_italiano Put the ribbons on with pride!
