Defending the helicopter base was the all crucial objective for RIF in this battle, although things looked grim at times, the defense held and RIF won this battle: We are awarding 12 points to RIF and 4 points to BGB, bringing the total number of campaign points to: RIF: 17 BGB: 15 Here is the admins' perspective of the battle The battle started with both teams deploying perfectly, and contact is not made until after 5 minutes after the round starts. The initial spot for the first engagement is the breeding ground for the rest of the battle with a tug of war, or stalemate kind of situation. Spoiler: 1st Phase After a long fight in the north, a prepared attack along with a new decisive FOB breaks the stalemate, and BGB troops rush the embedded defenders inside the helicopter base. Attacking proves difficult and although the flag starts capping, a RIF counter attack challenges and clears the area, mostly. Spoiler: 2nd Phase RIF has multiple FOBs and a long line of engagement which gives them the ability to maintain pressure against an aggressive enemy as long as they have control over their supply lines and BGB saves no effort trying to disrupt the main supply line from their main base. Spoiler: Supply Lines Even though BGB has the initiative and is dictating the pace of the battle, their attacks prove too expensive and after a long and repetitive battle the game ends as it started: in and around the helicopter base. Spoiler: Final phase From the Admins perspective this battle really showed what both teams usually do in games, RIF plays defensive and BGB is offensive. The match was mostly a stalemate with some flanking and subversive engagements in the rear. BGB did a really good job attacking, RIF just did better defending. Good fight and well done!
