    Player of the Week 21/2/2021 Your Player of the Week chosen by the I&A staff team is The Tank Guy Congratulations. @the tank guy – Not hard to work out his chosen role from his name and it's one that he excels at. Thundering across the flats and hills, plundering his way into the towns and eradicating the enemy CSAT as they try and oppose the onslaught of BLUFOR. Can’t mistake the sound of the T140 Angara he commands with his trusty AI driver as they take on any formidable resistance to reach the objectives. Played on both Altis and the Lavonia map and on both was a fantastic asset to have on the ground support the ground troops. The staff note he practically saved the day in Livonia during a defend. It was 4 of us with our backs against the wall, hearing a tank we all thought it was all over...but in rolls TheTankGuy with a slammer, and did just that, slammed the CSAT into submission. Please keep coming back Tank Guy, your abilities are welcome. Honourable Mentions: Glory501 – Has been playing for a short time and has made a huge impression regarding his adaption and understanding the roles he enjoys. Ironside, UAV, mortar gunner, rifleman and at times when needed flies a heli as well. An international member of the Straya Gaming family, does a fantastic job in providing help to a number of players, gets involved and helps out where he cans. Communicates well in game on text and is a nice guy that plays in the spirit of the game. A dedicated UAV pilot and a very competent multi role player we are looking forward to seeing what he does next. @Appu – 3rd honourable mention and well deserved. As expected, continues to strive at his role’s medic, rifleman and sniper and is another who engages with all players in the game, likes to help out new players and makes a difference. Targets the objectives and along the way ensures the Mortar Pit and AA are done before moving into the HQ. Even managed to capture a couple of CSAT commanders and get them back to Gitmo on the way. Nice job Appu Clockie – been a regular player for sometime and plays as a medic and has joined the team of medics that strive to get in capped players back onto their feet in the advance against the oppression of CSAT. Appears to also have obtained dental skills whereby he sometimes relieves the CSAT of their gold teeth. Always has room for a couple of explosives so he can level the tower when weaving across the battlefield trying to get to his next victim. Very handy to have around in the middle of a defend and always makes the effort to get to you regardless. On behalf of Straya Gaming Staff and of course all its players, our congratulations again to the Player of The Week and those receiving an Honourable Mention. Player of the Week 21/2/2021 Your Player of the Week chosen by the I&A staff team is TheTankGuy Congratulations.

    Player of the Week 24/1/2021 Your Player of the Week chosen by the I&A staff team is @Matteus Congratulations. @Matteus – A long serving dedicated player who has fun yet takes his role pretty serious. Plays a lot of side missions with Bohammer and they generally have a good success rate. Handy as a gunner in the armed blackfish and also on the frontline at the AO lasing tanks and other enemy armour that opposes the advancement of friendly troops. Very handy to have when a defend is on, prepares ammo crates with all the right ammo for those in need at the HQ. Also a good asset in Ironside and as a JTAC. Is there any role you can’t do? A great effort overall with tactics and even when things don’t go like they were planned, his attitude and demeanour never seems to falter. Well done Matteus. Honourable Mentions: Gunman - A frontline player who role is a medic and continuously and methodically pushes the front troops up into the target areas, driving forward. Great communication and a great asset to the game. Staff noted excellent communication and leadership skills. Supporting newer players, and encouraging great teamwork all round. We’d certainly hold a trench with you mate. @swampy741 – Another multi role player, rifleman, medic and UAV who over the past week has been noted to adapt and performs his role well, especially in a defend where he stays in the tower healing and reviving players engaging the onslaught of CSAT troops as they advance their way in an attempt to gain the HQ. Nicely done Swampy and a role you play well. @Aussie_Cowboy – A player who has been around for some time and knows exactly what is required from the medic role. Makes the difference and effort to get to any players regardless of the distance. Takes the risks and generally overall succeeds. A good player to have in any situation and especially a defend where he will Criss-cross the HQ area, tower by tower to respond to those in need. Well done Aussie_Cowboy.

    This might spawn some clever ideas for rewards, provided we can get some assets made. I remember once we were tooling around when Livonia came out and we built a tractor with a Centurion missile launcher on top. Are you thinking of quirky/funny things like that?

    Player Of The Week 01/11! Your Player Of The Week chosen by the I&A staff team is HonourableSushi! Congratulations! HonourableSushi is all over our radar as an outstanding player. He has two previous Honourable Mentions for Player of the Week! This player is consistent, dedicated and selfless, often risking life and limb for others, which are the cornerstone of any great medic. As a member of a team, he is a force multiplier, by efficiently and effectively keeping the team on their feet and in the fight. Over the past months I've seen this player time and time again going well above and beyond the call! On behalf of myself and all the Straya Gaming staff, it is my absolute pleasure to award HonourableSushi with Player of the Week! Honourable Mentions: @Hetwan, Another medic who @Captain Ratso has been keeping an eye on, this player is consistent and capable. It's the hard hours put in over the week which brings up the standard for everyone else and gives all other players a great experience. Of particular note is his disregard for personal safety during defend missions, where he will prioritize the recovery of others over his own well being. Well done mate! @Yuri, yet another Medic. I myself am always proud to carry him into battle (if we actually had a CSAR capability on the server, I'd want you in the back as a PJ!). What really separates Yuri from the rest of the crew is his dedication to cover vast distances to revive a downed casualty, highlighting his selflessness and sacrifice for others. Fantastic work Yuri, I'll see you on the next sorty! Desert, a relatively new player, Desert has shown himself to be an exceptional warfighter. Marksmanship, infantry minor tactics, and a diverse skill-set means this operator can adapt to any situation and win the fight! Plays often in the early mornings and late at night, when the numbers of friendlies are low, thus shows that this is a guy you want up front sending the brass! Solid! @Matteus a long term, very consistent player. (he was amazed when I told him he had over 1000 hours on the server) Matteus is the jack of all trades. Often known for running a side mission team, or rocking an armoured vehicle/tank into the AO, his skills are diverse and his ability to get any job done do him credit. If you're out there and see him on the field tag along, he knows exactly what he's doing. This guy operates both in small teams and solo, and loves to take on tasks that gravely outweigh an average player. What a champion!

    Player Of The Week 04/10! Your Player Of The Week chosen by the I&A staff team is Deevy! Deevy is a medic more than dedicated to the role and not afraid to take those chances against an enemy regardless of what they throw her way, she covers ground under fire to get you up when you're incapped. Solid effort overall and also known to pack some high explosive among the tourniquets and Israeli dressings just to ensure that Tower goes down. Has not been able to play last few days due to having to work, but when she’s on the game, rest assured if she is within 500 meters of your moaning carcass, she is going to attempt to get to you, and when you see that pink skin coming towards you, more than likely your not going to get the chance to thank her, as shes already off to get the next grunt up on his feet. Leadership skills, and taking charge means this player is a great female example within the community, and the staff here at I&A are proud to award her the well deserved Player Of The Week! Honourable Mentions: Honorablesushi, Prepared to go the distance regardless of obstacles and dedicates himself to the role. A dedicated medic who puts the value of others above his own. A consistent week of hard work reviving people. As the moto of the USAF Pararescue goes "that others may live" @Jnr has been recommended by the players during a defend. Focusing inwards, which is sometimes needed, noted for dragging player after player to the medics while under fire to keep the fire up. CPT iNSANO, Always in the front line, seems to evade a lot of the armour but when he does go down, its generally some distance away. When reviving there are enemy bodies everywhere near him. Good strategic approaches concentrating on the tasks in a chronological order. One to definitely have on your side and a good leader to follow.

    No idea mate, just someone around here who has standards and isn't a washed up clown.

    From my memory the helicopter spawns are like this due to direct requests from long time players. Take Persona for example requesting the Taru, or SNAFU requesting the Hellcat.
  10. I had a few ideas (and had a chat on TS with a few people) about incorporating the FOB into side missions. 2 examples would be a full fledged defend of the FOB, where there could be a timer until the attack starts and then it's on. Another example could be "An AT team has positioned itself overlooking the FOB to take out anyone leaving with a vehicle, search the area, take them out and destroy their missile cache" I figure it could give the FOB a bit more purpose.

    Had a chat with a few players about making a dedicated hanger where the fixed wing UAV will spawn. Upsides to this are that it allows the slower UAVs to get into action faster. My big selling point however, is that it helps the UAV pilot feel more like a part of the team, having to talk with pilots, and use the Runways and Taxiways.

    Vehicle blackfish vs van

    Might be a Bohemia issue, but Aussie Dave and Myself found that whenever transporting a van in the vehicle blackfish it'll start to smoke (but not show damage) and explode. Makes me think its the van inside taking damage.

    Artillery inert

    I've been working with some players, and every time we call Arty onto a target (using guided rounds with a laser active), but even when observing through Zeus, no rounds ever impact. My thinking is maybe the round is made inert by some bug with the weapons safe on base, or perhaps its not firing a round at all. This may take a fair bit of testing to find a solution.

    Fob anzac issues

    It may have been reported, but we have some issues with FOB ANZAC. Essentially the FOB activation terminal and some vehicles will spawn inside the warehouse/factory looking vehicles. The building is not enterable so the FOB cannot be activated.
