Saturday 2nd of June 2012 - Your local starting time can be seen under "Events" here: Click me!Map:
60 Minutes time, 1500pts/player. Depending on the number of participants we will either run 3v3s or 4v4s. Let's see.Decks:
The way we played Battle 1, the US was really underpowered. Everyone who also participated in the second round agreed that we should keep the system we used in the second match.
US players are allowed to fight with a full US deck (Please note that the KPz 70 is a German unit and therefore mustn't be used by US players).
EU players have to play nation specific decks. That means that each player will either play as BRD, FR or UK. In case of a 4v4 the French army has to be played by 2 people. Please note that the Marder Roland 2 is a German unit and therefore may not be used by the French players.
All EU players may also include the FOB in their deck.Registration:
Just leave a post stating as which faction and nation you'd like to play. Players who were registered for the last battle but didn't get a place will get priority seating.Teamspeak (obligatory):
Part 1 here: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=9836
5th of May: The United States Army had to take heavy losses in their first encounter with the Eurocorps. The US advance in Poland has been given a halt.
6th of May: The United States troops get pushed back to Warsaw where they fortify themselfes. The EU begins to take control over the Polish countryside. The US are unable to call in reinforcements due to EU air superiority over Eastern Europe and due to Russian threats. Russian President Medutin: "Any further US movements over the black sea will lead to aggressive reactions by the Russian air force".
7th of May: The US still holds a couple of military bases within European territory. The Rammstein Air Base, the biggest of those, has enough stationary troops to hold off an European advance. The area can't be bombed due to the village of Rammstein nearby. The EUMS decides that this is an unbearable situation and prepares for a big attack.Rammstein Air Base
