The Final Assault: Operation Viper 2

* Saturday June 28-Sunday June 29
0:00 gmt Saturday Ė 03:00 gmt Monday

Come one, come all. Sign up in advance as an individual or as a team in the thread. You can show up even if you donít!

Operation Viper 2 is being planned using the framework from the original Operation Viper.

If there is enough participation we will include some simple planetary league elements such as capturing planets, factory destruction, and strongholds used to ban certain variants before matches start (Oh, God, pick the Shiva A, quick!).

Games will be played in TC mode when there are 6 or more players per side, as tonnage-based drops when there are 4 or more players per side, and in TSA mode when there are 1 or more players per side.

There will be a map pack available for download in the event thread http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,20405.0.html that will contain all of the maps needed to play in the event.

All assets will be available (depending on the map). No more than 1 APC may be built for a drop. No more than 5 BA may be taken into a drop. Games will be played in puretech mode when possible. For drops, the Innersphere team will play with 360 tons available while Clan will play with 320 tons (http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,17371.0.html). No repeating assets during a single drop (ie. donít take two Shadowcat Cs in the same drop).

Maps

Time
Event will run from 00:00 gmt Saturday June 28 to 03:00 gmt Monday June 29.  Hop on when you have time and something should be going on. Peak time: Saturday June 28 16:00-22:00gmt.

Format
As much as possible, the event will be run just like Operation Viper.

Why?
Gamespy servers are going offline on June 30. That means Crysis Wars, and by extension, Living Legends, will not longer be playable without a patch. The solution we have in mind is guaranteed to work, but at this time we are uncertain if any problems will occur. We also do not know what this will do to the player base. I am confident we can still play, but there is always a small chance this is it. So, BKS has been planning an event for that weekend for a while now. Operation Viper was one of the most popular events for this game. It also allows the global player base to participate during times than can play. We want to fill up the servers at least one more time. It has been a while since Phoenix Down and Forever Legends, so we said why not?

Communications
This thread and the soon to be related threads. PM duelist or Starch1ld. All coordination will happen via the Teamspeak 3 servers.  Main event server is Wolverines Rebirth teamspeak, available at wr-clan.no-ip.org.Thanks WR Burner! Also the BKS teamspeak is available at ts3.bks.ca

How can I help?
Glad you asked! :) First of all, tell everyone you know about this event! The more we spread the word the better chance we have of getting a lot of players on. So sign up if you want to take part.  I can also use people to stream and comment on the games as they occur. Post here or pm me if you want to help with the event.

Is there detailed information on the event?

Yes! See the handbook int this thread. http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,20407.0.html

Can you pull this off?

The framework for operation viper 1 is already in place. We are going to adapt as much of that as possible. BKS is a pretty big unit so we can delegate some stuff. And I know there are other units and players out there that would be happy to help :) In short, yes we can pull it off. Or at least give it a good try :P

Who or what is BKS?
Black Shadow Mercs Corp, is a unit that was formed for the Forever Legends tournament earlier this year. We liked playing together so we have stuck around. Our website is hq.bks.ca if you want to come say hi :)

I'll join up. If I can get Benben and SnowGibbon and a few others of my unit back together, then I'll sign up as a team. For now I'll just sign up as an individual.

Is Dhalrin involved with this, or have you contacted him?  He was the guy that organised the original Op Viper and made it the success that it was.

I would suggest you get as much information as possible from him, and don't underestimate the amount of work that goes into it.

Best of luck

If you take this seriously, you're some kind of mouth-breathing fappwit that shouldn't have survived infancy.

No, Dhalrin is not involved at this time. I am taking information that is available from Operation Viper. I am forming a good support team to assist BKS with this undertaking. I appreciate your advice and will take it into consideration.

Organized gameplay with inner sphere vs clan. All taking place as a planetary capture campaign. Original event ran 8 hours straight. This one takes place over 2 days.

Operation Viper 2 is being planned using the framework from the original Operation Viper.

If there is enough participation we will include some simple planetary league elements such as capturing planets, factory destruction, and strongholds used to ban certain variants before matches start (Oh, God, pick the Shiva A, quick!).

Games will be played in TC mode when there are 6 or more players per side, as tonnage-based drops when there are 4 or more players per side, and in TSA mode when there are 1 or more players per side.

Question, what was the format of Operation Viper?  ???

Global confrontation between the two sides. Clans - Inner Sphere. 1 Commander. Attack \ Defend planets.

p/s/ :  if our people are online - we'll be there. At least I hope so.

No more than 1 APC may be built for a drop. No more than 5 BA may be taken into a drop. Games will be played in puretech mode when possible. For drops, the Innersphere team will play with 360 tons available while Clan will play with 320 tons (http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,17371.0.html). No repeating assets during a single drop (ie. donít take two Shadowcat Cs in the same drop).
  - if I remember correctly, this is other of the tournament:)  In Op. Viper not restrictions on the recurring assets.

Didn't we have like over 80 people in the first event at any given moment, and over 100 in total? It will probably only be one server's worth this time around  :P

Also, ditto on asking Dhalrin for whatever information he can give, he really did put in a crap load of effort and may have some pointers.

Good luck either way :)

Not entirely sure I can show up, but hell, I will try. If anything and I have time, I will head to BKS' Team Speaker and see what's up.

Hope it will work out, really. Great work anyway for taking it on.
Watch "Save the Supers" you will get some laughs in.

Should I ever be listed at the top of my team, then we have a serious problem.

I'm not sure about the likeliness of me showing up for this event, especially over the next week.
I'll definitely have time for at least one drop; the problem is when, as my schedule is really a mess currently.

Hopefully, this gets more attention, it needs more people involved to be awesome.

Everybody should contact all of their former MWLL teammates and try to get them online for one last tournament before the gamespay thing, just in case.

Sign me up. Have to work on weekend but I will do my best to be there as much as possible. Also will try to contact more Jaguars and see if they can sign up too.

Thank you very much to the people who is trying this to be possible.

Hi guys,

Congrats on trying to pull this off! You definitely have my blessing to use whatever you need from the original Op Viper. Pretty much everything you need should still be online. If you need something or want to get some hints, feel free to PM me. I have some thoughts, but this is your gig, and I'm not gonna force them on you.

Cheers,

Dhal
