Details for the "Rolling Thunder" PVP battle
: 11 mar 2011, 1:44
As promised to you and Voy, I hereby share the information/details regarding “Rolling Thunder”. As I understood that there was interest from your group, a number of slots have been reserved in your name. Please let me know if the amount of slots is correct/up-to-date and if you are comfortable with the positions. Just for extra clarity, this battle is only a single, standalone battle. Currently approx 60 players have volunteered to participate, many of them you probably know (see roster)
Based on the information I received from you and the other clans/group leaders, the battledate has been set for Thursday 24th March. The times are as follows:
20:00 GMT Assembly on Teamspeak, tactical briefing by company commanders
20:30 GMT Mission start
21:30 GMT Mission end, followed by TS evaluation
Below is a link to a tool which helps you calculate your local time difference to GMT 0 time.
The addons needed are @CBA and @ACE (Stable 1.9 versions)
In the links you can find instructions on how to install them (for those who are not familiar with it). 'Addon key' verifications will be on, so serverkeys will be needed as well.
The Teamspeak address for this battle will be zeus.ts3-serveur.com port 13605, password “scudo”. The channels will be named the same way as on the website roster. Each tank crew / recon team will have an own channel available. Please install the mods / prepare TS whispers in advance so we can start the battle on time.
The battle roster can be viewed via the link below. It would be handy for organisational purposes if I could have the names of those who will be playing as tank commander / platoon leader or other teamleader. If you have a volunteer for the transport helicopter pilot slot and / or logistical group slots, please let me know as well.
There is also a link to the page which describes what gear you have and how the game concept works. The battle will take 1 HOUR (and maybe longer if there is interest at the end of the battle)
The Teamspeak server will contain the following setup for channels, identical for both sides. I recommend to use the setup as linked below, within your company for maximum effectiveness as a team. Below are also pictures of the tactical maps and actual pictures of the start points / bases. You can also find a link to basic tips when operating as a crew in a (virtual) tank, very handy as it will certainly help you work together as crews/platoons. It also explains basic operating keys etc. The battle will take place on the sandy plains of Takistan.
Should you have any questions about the battle, preparations or this project in general, do not hesitate to contact me. I’m looking forward seeing you the 24th!
