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).

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.caHow 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 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
