    FOREWORD: Time and date are subject to change.


    MISSION DESCRIPTION: A group or several groups of players (depending on how many players will join) should provide distraction for a lone pilot as he commences a reconnaissance raid around the system. Cause as much damage to Great Doms' forces as possible. The intersection between the attack groups and the scout should be minimal. Return point is DS17.


    I will work the further details out later. So far, the defined things are mission concept (described above), location (Venn), and date (still subject to change). Naturally, I reserve the role of a scout pilot for myself, though I can swap with an actual Event Manager later. As a disclaimer, I do not intent to leave all this work to you to avoid it; on the contrary; it'd be missing most of the fun action. But oh well, I can afford this sacrifice for the sake of a good story.

  • this looks really fun, hope many can come :) been wanting to do something like this for a while. best times for me on Sunday would be between about server time 20:30 (8:30 PM) to about 2 AM or anything after that works too. Should be cool getting a good diverse group of ships and pilots in there and all having fun together.

  • Well, I can also approximate that I can have it run from 2 AM server time... would be about 10 AM for me. Can also have it run soon after the server restart (though we can run afoul of server-related quirks).

  • INCOMING MESSAGE

    From: Deep Space 17, "Ajay", Coalition Acting Chief Intelligence Officer of DS17

    To: Coalition HQ, "Canteen", Intelligence Advisor of Alien Threats Department of CID

    Topic: Intelligence gathering


    Greetings.

    There is one concern that I should bring up.

    Recently, we've been getting insufficient intelligence on Great Doms' movements in Inner Core Conquered Territory. Since the Black Guard 130th Elimination Squad, as well as Navy battlegroup, have either been recalled and/or received stand by orders, all my intel comes from second hands. Unfortunately, since my appointment as Acting Chief Intelligence Officer, I have been prohibited from personally deploying on reconnaissance missions.

    To speak frankly: I'm flakking tired of filing a ton of paperwork each time I get Stranger out. Requesting permission to undertake as many scouting runs as I need. I'm flakking blind in here.

    -Ajay.

    Topic: Re: Intelligence gathering


    I can only grant you a partial permission. I cannot allow you to undertake scouting runs still. I can, however, allow you to either be a liaison to allied force, or carry out duties aimed at maintenance of our means of gathering data.

    As for the latter, I have good news to you.

    Our techs analyzed the data core of the Silver Arrows automated sensor station that you reclaimed during operation Backtracking. This allowed us to discover how Warriors found the station and develop counters.

    The experimental batch of these new sensor stations is ready. We want to deploy them in Inner Core Conquered Territory to gather more data. They can be deployed in atmosphere of a planet, on an asteroid or even on a Dom'Kavash jump gate.

    They, however, will not be enough, and your lone flight might take unwanted attention. So I allow you to pull all the strings you can to gather a larger group and commence a reconnaissance by combat. Development of the plan is up to you, but we need results in terms of intelligence network improvements by the end of this summer.


    INCOMING MESSAGE

    From: [LOCATION SCRAMBLED], "Ajay"

    To: Deep Space 17, HQ and Strategic Deck

    Topic: Operation Barrage (better name pending) - Battle Plan

    Comrades, we have developed an operation that could help us establish a network of stealth surveillance drones in Inner Core Conquered Territory. However, that deployment requires a distraction. I propose gathering a strike force and attacking alien forces in Venn in order to provide said distraction.

    Alas, for the first mission, I have been ordered to personally deploy those drones. This is an experimental tech that has been rushed to the frontline, and this is its first field testing.


    Operation details:

    VennSurvival.jpg

    Zones where drones should be deployed are designated A, B and C, near Repair Buoys. The distraction team should avoid intersecting with the deployment unit to keep the drones off scope. After the deployment unit completes the objective in the zone, the Repair Buoys are safe to use. The deployment unit arrives from Inner Core system and begins operation as soon as the distraction team reports first hostile contact, and leaves through Celldra system. The distraction team deploys from Deep Space 17 and returns to Deep Space 17 as well. Moving around the system is up to the distraction team leader.


    OUT OF UNIVERSE

    Well, I guess you got it.

    I can foresee this question - sorry, but nope, I won't be fighting at your side. I am basically taking over as an Event Manager here. This is made for immersion purposes. I will be in the group and probably on Discord, who knows? I'm just testing the waters with this idea - this event itself is largely experimental.


    In case you'll want bonus action, I can send a "distress signal" from Sadurn. If you are up to it, of course.


    I'm not sure if I have any cash to spare for rewards. In case an actual EM decides to support this, I propose adding a bonus for no intersections with the deploying unit.


    One thing left to discuss: event time.

    I am considering these options: 2:00 servertime (Good for NA, not really for Europe), 8:00 servertime (Good for me, questionable for everyone else but who knows?) 12:00-14:00 (Bad for NA, probably good for Europe, decent for me). Next post will be a poll. Please keep in mind that I am defaulting on 8 AM in case of no replies.


    If you have more questions, ask them now.

  • Voted for 14 but any of the rest start time will do my very best to be present.

    Proposals - /gonna be a bit long/

    The participants must confirm there participation some time before the event - /you gonna need it for the below described/

    You will want to give each of us a call sign /easy for comunication during the mess:P/

    Make the teams and again give each team a call sign.

    example-6 pilots each call name 1,2,3,4,5,6....2 teams A and B 123 repr.A team...456-B....3 areas to cover...A team on A sector...B team on B.
    In case s*** happened you can always type 3=B...meaning pilot 3 /from team A/goes and help team B...or A=B...hole team A move to B position.....later A B=C...both teams move to third sector.Its up to you to organise it your way.

    Some time before the event , its a Must,you make a breafing in here.

    Your comunications,we shall consider those an orders,will be precise , quick and understandable.

    Looks easy but it wount be:P...good luck to all of us

    count me in

    You misunderstood... the distraction teams have MUCH more freedom: they only have to NOT be in the sector where I am while I am moving from sector to sector (and even then it's not a strict rule). Aside from that, you just have to make noise by fighting aliens.

    But yes, I will tell when I'll be moving. Probably, to the team leader(s) via Discord.


    EDIT: But I think it could also be fun if I wasn't aware where you are going. After all, my objective is supposed to be secret, so less transmissions.


    (In fact, you don't even have to do that since there's no way for me to tell if you are sitting at a repair buoy or actively kicking alien ass; I just hope you'll play along)

  • got it correct mate,but even a dstraction should be planned...imagine me...flying arround...fighting whatever I meet...and suddenly I find my self far form the place for distraction....what use of me...another example 4 pilots smashing 3 doms fighters with no idea that 2 compadres are struggling with 5 gunboats....but still...its your ops...whatever its your call its gonna be fun:P

  • and suddenly I find my self far form the place for distraction

    And so is the focus of Great Doms' attention. We need to keep them AWAY from those zones while op is going, not IN.

    Say, the op is going and I say A>B to the chat. This means the groups should try to vacate the zone B; preferably not in the direction of zone A. If all goes ideal, the first place where I'll meet you will be in Sadurn when I'll request assistance.


    another example 4 pilots smashing 3 doms fighters with no idea that 2 compadres are struggling with 5 gunboats

    That might be an issue, so I guess we'll also need to have someone to coordinate the distraction effort - because I will also not be aware of this. But yeah, I guess it would be like in Dooms Hunt - teams with leaders.

    With respect mate but hope you to mannage it to be far from Dooms Hunt....give people target,organise them and they'll have a purpose...make it look proffesional and miracles might happen:P


    That might be an issue, so I guess we'll also need to have someone to coordinate the distraction effort

    Definitely not mate /my oppinion/...you dont need like 3 leaders to 6 fighters...one is enough...if first attempt is ruined you can always order abort mission and start all over again....no pain no gain:P

    but all of the above is just a suggestion...I'm sure its gonna be a thrill event....wount miss it:P

  • I'm not sure if I have any cash to spare for rewards. In case an actual EM decides to support this, I propose adding a bonus for no intersections with the deploying unit.

    I suggest an equal 20M reward to all participants and can provide the funds.


    By the way, if all participants join one group, the deploying unit will be able to watch distraction team's movements via the map and easily avoid them.

    Yeah, that kinda crossed my mind as well.

    That's great. Hopefully you will participate in this :)
