Default PRTA One-Life Event - Cold Vengeance - 19:00 PRT, 5th January 2019


One-Life Event - Cold Vengeance
__________________




PRTA Presents: One-Life Event - Cold Vengeance | 19:00 PRT, 5th January 2019



Server: PRTA | EU - OneLife Event
Server Password: onelife
Map: Yamalia AAS Alt
Time/Date: 19:00 PRT, 5th JANUARY 2019

The situation

After the initial rescue mission 2 years ago, the intel gathered from the Yamal region sub pens raised concerns.

A platoon of US Army 10th Mountain Division is dispatched to the region with minimal logistical support to create a foothold for a bigger operation. A similar formation is fielded from 288th Guards Motor Rifle Regiment on the Russian side, which routinely patrols the area.

Both sides are aiming for maximum control over the barren snowy lands, as the US Army plans to ingress a larger number of troops as soon as possible.


Mission intel

US Army assets: 1x Trans Chopper, 2x Trans Truck, 2x Logi Truck, 1x APC.
Russian Army assets: 1x Trans Chopper, 2x Trans Truck, 2x Logi Truck, 1x APC.

No mortars, 1x TOW, 1x AA.
Both teams hold in main for 10 minutes.

One life?

Fight in the upcoming One-Life event and be a part of one the most thrilling rounds of PR you have ever played! Every decision you make on the battlefield might be your last, as there is no forgiveness with the no-respawn policy. Work closely with your squad mates, keep them alive and listen to every order your squad leader gives you, take your squad on an epic and immersive path to victory as a squad leader or even command the battle if you can take the pressure. Tactical movement, situational awareness, suppression, retreating and many other skills are vital to the well-being of your squad and team. Remember, the lives of others depend on your actions!

One-Life, or perma-death events are created to bring you the ultimate emotional experience PR has to offer. Although the events have a slightly altered game mechanics, the core gameplay stays exactly the same. However, competitiveness and continuous action take the back seat to the incredible adrenaline rush of having just one shot at the mission and planning every move with utmost care.


Rules

Once you give up, or the revive timer hits zero and you are forced to respawn (you get 1 on the death count), you are not eligible to play any more and will be automatically removed from the server with a temporary ban for the duration of the event.

Although the event does not feature sign-ups of any kind, chain of command is to be respected at all times. If there is a CO present, squad leaders must act out his orders unless specified otherwise - Same goes for squad members. Any insubordination is a kickable offense.

There are no other rules (except standard PRTA Server Rules), so the outcome is completely in the hands of the team.


Additional tweaks
  • Realism changes. Besides the obvious one-life policy (applies to vehicles as well), there is a variety of other tweaks to bring the gameplay closer to reality ranging from improved bullet characteristics and damage to a revised stamina system. Taking weapons from crates and spawning on FOB/RP is also disabled. Wounded states are also changed, meaning you can be critically wounded for 15 minutes and must not get shot in the next 10 minutes from being revived to regain the revive ability.
  • Technical changes. Commander slot is disabled, and CO's have to lead from an existing squad, named properly starting with a CO in the squad name. Round start timer is also increased to 5 minutes with an additional 10 minute hold in the main base. Squads can only be created when spawn-in is available, to give everybody an equal chance. Scoring is disabled. Vehicles don't cost tickets.
  • Deployables changes. To place an FOB, 3 large crates are needed and for deployables, additional 3 large crates are needed. Double the value with small crates. You can now deploy statics up to 300m from the FOB, if the necessary crates are in 200m range. Number of FOBs is 2 per team. Maximum deployables is 50 + 8 HMGs per team, this includes foxholes, razor wires, sandbags etc. - they all can be used on one FOB or split in any manner if 2 FOBs are built. AT, AA and MORTAR emplacements vary depending on the scenario.
  • Insurgency & civilian changes. As the approach to each cache in 1L mode will be much slower and cautious, the number has been lowered. Blufor needs 100 intel points to get info about the second cache, and it will take 20 minutes to reveal one. If you capture an insurgent with the restrainers, you will get 100 IP, however you can get 10 IP by killing insurgents in a range of 100m. Shooting and killing a civilian will deduct 50 IP, destroying a civilian car will deduct 25 IP. Blufor also doesn't get a ticket boost when destroying a cache. Respecting ROE is a must. When you down the second civilian, you die - therefore the server will automatically remove you. It only takes 10 seconds after dropping and INS/HAMAS kit to become a civilian, and 10 seconds after getting in a civilian vehicle for the vehicle to become a civilian vehicle. However being in close proximity to armed fighters for any amount of time will reset the timer and you can be shot for helping the insurgency.
Authors notes

With a new year, there is another page to be turned in the book of 1L. Straying away from the predetermined AAS path resulting in a very metagame experience, we go back to the "vanilla" Conquest (V2) mode. However the ticket flow system remains, meaning that while there is no direct need to capture flags, it is very beneficial to do so to increase the ticket count. Scenarios thus depends solely on the actions the CO's take, taking into account the risk-reward factor. This is an "open test" to see if all future events can utilize the same system and make the battlefield dynamic like never before.

Feedback after the event would be much appreciated and can be posted here: One-Life Feedback Thread

I wouldn't worry too much about that anymore.

If anyone wants to CO, you know the drill.

I said that YOU don't have to worry about it. Just come, play and enjoy, there is some gameplay changes that should make it a bit more intesting, hopefully.

Seeding starts in about 1 hour. Be there! (If you are not on the whitelist but would like to play, we cannot guarantee entry today. Although you do have to be a well known player or a "regular" on our Modern Conflict server and without infractions.)

This is how the actual map looks. Still no CO's, there is hope that someone will step up. Please do note it's a "public beta test". As mentioned in the feedback thread, in the future, it can either be like this, with flags in all key locations or just 9 flags randomly picked by the AAS system out of the lot. That would make it more focused, but still very sandboxy. We will see how this turns out.



Looking forward to serving with you.

What are your thoughts on launching two or more maps/events sequentially, at a fixed time, like 1,5 hours after the first started?

People lose interest after dying in the first one. Even if its a 50v50 on the first one, it wouldnt be more than 20v20 on the second one. Only solution is not to die.
