The Actual Battle Report
@Seal that picture is very similar to this battle field!
for 7 of the 11 players this was their first non-soakfest war. Also the battle started with out much planning for either teams, hence there are some tactical errors and mistakes by both teams. Italics text will be what was thinking at the time or in post analysis. to recap - I am the CPS 1000phase 1
I move to go round the East of the building, Scatter blast #2 decides to accompany me. I tell him to take the south east corner and that i shall cover him. he has no chance in the open - i should be ok in the open unless there are 2-3+ enemies in which case i shall retreat back round the corner hopefully he might be able to ambush
Scatter blast #1 heads to the south door of the men's room as he likes a close quarters battle
The rest of my team (Shotblast Micro-burst and Thunderstorm) choose to go round to the west
The green team send the Triple charge and colossus 2 #2 round to the west
The sphinx and colossus 2 head to the north door of the men's room
Colossus 2 #3 heads to the East of the building i think he was scoutingphase
battle is quickly engaged and resolved on the West side:
Colossus 2 #2 takes out Microburst
Triple Charge takes out Thunderstorm
Shot blast manages to take out the Triple Charge but then dies to Colossus 2 #2
Battle in the men's room is a stalemate neither team makes a kill but scatter blast #1 manages to takes some ground pushing into the room
on the East side Colossus 2 #3 spots me and also scatter blast #2 (who is peaking round the corner). He realizes he is outmatched and backs up round the corner firing as he moves (he knows i am faster than him so running is not an option)
. I push up wide and tell scatter blast #2 to move up and take the north east corner.phase 3
at the north east corner colossus 2 #3 is low on pressure from firing to cover his retreat, and no longer has the range to challenge me - he dodges my first shot but can't evade the second and goes down.
on the west side colossus 2 #2 is now alone having lost his team mate and eliminated all enemies - he moves down to the south side of the building
the Sphinx and Colossus 2 #1 decide to push into the building, their superior firepower easily forcing scatterblast #1 back - although somehow he evades the attack and falls back through the door. (he is lucky that colossus 2# 2 has already moved past and no longer has line of sight to the alcove of the south door of the men's room)phase 4
the battle for the east side over quickly i decide to sprint round to the west side leaving scatter blast #2 behind, he takes the north ladies room alcove (I am hoping to hit the green team in the back as i think the battle is still contested on the west side)
. As I round the north west corner i glance into the north me'r room door but don't see anyone so I continue down the west side
the battle inside the men's room is a stand off once again and no-one make any progress
on the south side colossus 2 #2 continues to move round to the eastphase 5
inside the men's room the sphinx and colossus 2 #1 fall back (i think they heard me running behind them)
scatter blast #1 takes the opportunity to push forward into the room
as i round the south west corner i again glance at the door and see no-one (i am quite confused as to where everyone is)
so i continue to the south side. I spot colossus 2#2 out of range and walking east ]he hasn't seen me - time for stealth mode!
i move as quietly as i can across the loose rocky surface - closing the distance.
scatter blast #2 holds position in the alcovephase 6
Colossus 2 #2 has no idea i am there till my shot hits him between the shoulder blades from nearly point blank(overly risky but i was sure i could get him before he could turn around. I was so excited when i pulled this off)
the mens room is a standoff between colossus 2 #1 and scatter blast #1
Sphinx and Scatter blast #2 are unaware of each other and hold their positions phase 7
Colossus 2 #1 opts to flank round the building at the same time scatter blast #1 pushes though the room - they miss each other and swap places
I am so confused ii have done a complete lap of the building and only seen 2 enemies. where is everyone?
i sprint to the north east corner of the building and spot the Sphinx moving north Alone. we must be the last 2 left i haven't seen anyone else
but then i scatter blast #2 and i spot each other, he rushes to my side. i point out the sphinx and tell scatter blast #2 "i think he is the last one. stick with me we'll take him down together"
together we move to attack. phase 8
Sphinx falls back quickly. scatter blast #2 and i push forward (i have to make this kill, but i must be careful - if i go down i hand the game to the green team)
. Then scatter blast #1 appears at the north west corner, I call him "Sphinx is the last one - help us take him out!" he replies "no colossus 2 #1 is still alive." before i can say anything he dashes back south.phase 9
i engage the sphinx scatter blast #2 stays with me but hang back i need to make this kill now - before colossus 2 #1 takes out scatter blast #1. I don't want to risk fighting a colossus 2 and a sphinx at the same time with only a scatter-blast as back up
i move forward rapidly shooting taps shots, sphinx moves back and tries to evade, he does not fire back - the pressure i am putting on him is to great, he goes down to my fourth or fifth shot.
we head south and i see Scatter blast #1 heading north i call out "i got the Sphinx" he calls back "i got the Colossus 2". I reply "then we win!"
victory to the blue team and three of us are still alive. I think we won only because of how favorable my three engagements were. two were 2v1s and the other my enemy had no idea i was there. I i had to fight these three at the same time - would have probably been killed.
What do you think of the battle? what were the good and bad moves (although you will have to be quite forgiving as most players are very inexperienced an mistakes are inevitable)
Also please feel free to continue to submit and discuss plans for the scenario
(also should this thread be in simulation and role playing as my subsequent scenarios will be, or in water wars as a battle report? perhaps i should copy this post as battle report in water wars and then a moderator could move this thread to the correct place, if that isn't to much trouble)
