  11. STRAYAGAMING OPERATION BITTER REDEMPTION Soldiers, pay close attention to the following specifics of the Bitter Redemption operation. Any questions should be directed to your server commanders. Zone 1: Stavros Zone 2: Frini Zone 3: Rodopoli Airdrop Zone: Gravia and surrounding area MISSION BRIEF: In reference to the map above, please note the the location of the three capture zones. Each team will begin the event with one of these zones captured. Teams will spawn ~2km behind their starting zone. Your goal is to capture all of the 3 zones. To ensure the greatest possible level of fairness, the side each team starts on will be drawn using a randomiser program on the night. Teams should plan to start with any one of the three zones. A Team will win once they have captured all three of the zones. Should no team capture all the zones within an hour, a decision will be made among Zeus' whether to extend the time or award the team with the most kills as the victors. VEHICLES: The following vehicles are available to each team, and will respawn at base when destroyed: RESTRICTIONS: Please note the following restrictions pertaining to game mechanics: Please note the following items that have been removed: MISCELLANEOUS SPECIFICS: AIR-DROPS - An "Air-Drop" Zone has been marked on the map previously shown. During the event, the Zeus will drop in certain items/vehicles to provide an advantage for the team that dares to pursue it. TEAM SIZES - The intended size of this mission is 20v20v20. If there are not enough players on the night, we will reduce the numbers to 15v15v15. SUPPORTED MODS - Connor's Discord Rich Presence, JSRS and Blastcore have all been added, but are not required to join the server. EVENTS DISCORD - All teams are using the events discord to organise themselves and plan for the mission. If you're interested in participating, all servers still have places available at the time of this post.
  12. THE WINNERS Congratulations to TEAM WASTELAND for winning the Bitter Redemption mission. Congratulations to @Hazzy155 for the largest kill streak. Congratulations to @Yeet for the most strategic play. Thank you to all the players who participated and the staff who made this event possible. Keep your eye on the forums for more Community Events!

    Restricting the closer AOs completely when there is only 20-25 players is probably not viable in my opinion, but that is something that would be analysed and discussed by the I&A staff anyway. Unfortunately many I&A pilots tend to develop a bit of tunnel-vision in regards to what their role can be. In the case of a close AO, consider the following: When there are few troops to transport or it is otherwise not viable, we should consider undertaking other supportive roles as a pilot. Can't help ya with your FPS though, that's a you problem ?
  14. Josh_ua

    @decibel_spl Perhaps a modification to the frequency of AOs spawning near base would be a better alternative? Morning players or those who play during low-population periods of the day are often considerably outgunned by the by AI, and lack the assistance of support roles and pilots. Having an AO situated close enough to base to make the use of an MRAP, IFV or MBT viable during times of low population increases the satisfaction of players and likelihood of a successful objective completion. However, during high-population times I do agree that the objectives need to be pushed further back so as not to nullify the pilot role, and assist in reducing lag. I feel that we should increase the frequency of closer AOs during off-peak times, and remove closer AOs from peak periods where there is upwards of 40 players.
  15. THE OBJECTIVE: Following the epic clash between the three pillars of Straya Gaming in Operation Velvet Thunder, a sequel has been planned to include more bloodshed, greater stakes and the most prized thing of all: REDEMPTION Each 15-man unit from Invade and Annex, Altis Life and Wasteland will begin the event with control of one town/zone. Your goal is to seize the other two zones without losing your own. If after an hour has passed no single team has secured all three zones, the team with the largest number of player-kills will take the title. TASKS: Secure all three zones Eliminate any opposing forces CONTROL MEASURES: Teams: To represent a server, you must play most frequently on that server (as in Velvet Thunder). Vehicles: You will be given a set arsenal of vehicles available for use. These vehicles will respawn after 60 seconds. Weapons: No limitations have been applied (may change). You may use whatever weapon/launcher/explosive you wish. Equipment: Thermal equipment has been restricted; including sights, thermal capable NVG and launcher sights. Respawns: No limitations have been applied. You have unlimited respawns. Game Mechanics: Stamina has been disabled. 3rd person is disabled. (May change) TEAM COMPOSITION: Team Commanders will be chosen by each server's staff team, who will select members for their team. If you are interested in being a Team Commander, please contact @Guardian ASAP. All players who wish to participate should send an expression of interest to @Guardian or @Asnee, who will direct you accordingly to a team. 15 members per team (may be increased to 20 if required) WHEN, WHERE & MISC: The event will take place on Sunday the 24th at 7PM AEDT. If you are participating, please ensure you are in TeamSpeak (ts.straya.life) by 6:30PM AEDT. Server Commanders and participating players are encouraged but not required to join our new events discord for easy communication and planning leading up to the event. A detailed mission brief of the zone locations and available vehicles will be made public closer to the event date. PRIZES: Prizes will be available for the winning team, top kills, and most strategic play. Prizes are as follows: Winning Team: Event Winner TeamSpeak tag Most Kills: $20 Steam Voucher Most Strategic Play: $20 Steam Voucher

    G'day @Liberatas ? Nursing certainly sounds like an interesting subject of study, I hope it goes all well for you and good luck with joining the ADF. See ya around, give us a yell if you have any questions!

    I may be wrong, but isn't there a scroll wheel option when you're outside the vehicle to unload/unload incapacitated?... I agree with Nova though, players who choose not to exit the aircraft have no real impact on you. Just fly back to base and forget about it. ?
  18. Josh_ua

    An excellent question, War Machine. To avoid bias and ensure fairness, we will draw out of hat which team is which and ultimately where they will spawn on the night. When the mission brief is posted later this week, teams will need to plan to start at any of the 3 bases.

    As Webbie stated, the reality is that Invade & Annex is a public server - you will get trolls, and you will get new players who don't understand how things work. Adding a time requirement in say an autoriflemen slot is not necessarily going to assist in mitigating the issue in a medic slot because they haven't actually been given time to learn the mechanics behind the medic role. That being said, I can understand your frustration. A better solution to this issue would be to direct new players to our guides on the forums (here) or giving them 5 minutes of your time in-game to help them understand the responsibilities and mechanics of the role. @xx_zero_xx_alpha_xx
