Chaos Event Mini Update


#21

Calcs for Saturday sent to leaders. Update to faction leaders this weekend. Need to setup training for Blakist and Stone leaders.


#22

Auto pilot time for event for next two weeks. I will still be around and we can hold some meetings. But people are busy this time of year and have more time off. So plan for low numbers next two weekends. But one year we had record turnout. Be safe out there and have fun.
Thanks to everyone for another great year of Chaos.

  1. Meeting broken up into 3 1 hour parts during a January Chaos day.
    Wrap up rulebook, form advertising campaign, update drop calc, set initial course for next Chaos iteration.
  2. Set cadence schedule for event. Faction leaders should know at start of each month what days to show up for offensives and when drop calcs will be ready.
  3. Drop leader/faction leader training
  4. Terrain Control and other incubator games 2 hours before Chaos drop start
    How to tie it into the event?
  5. Sunday night “sj practice night” expansion into Sunday night Merc night
  6. Audit of C3 tool, battellog, and transfer sheets. Make sure planets are all correct.
  7. Server reinstallation for more permanent setup

  9. Get new C3 User assigned to Chaos group to be able to use tool

Random thoughts. Dead stuff is 1 week behind schedule. 2 of 4 planet attacks declared for the new turn. Need blakist and FWL.

Double headers need to return at some point. But not during February.

Outreach was never captured but was in stones transfer sheet as well as blakists. There were assets moved from a planet. Planet is restored to blakists. Assets were from Capolla which is held by blakists. They likely belong to stone.

Update we got it fixed. Assets were on a different blakist planet. Now the starmap was wrong.

The jet on Saturday battle was still alive not “dead in the air bug”. Miscommunication on my part led to the pilot exiting the game rather than playing on with 0 % health. The player should have been allowed to play on after the collision.

Overall a very good day Saturday. The wait times got to 30 minutes twice as something to work on. A mini game is a must when expecting longer than 15 minutes.

Sunday One drop. Factions are up to date on dead assets. I suggest faction leaders transfer some stuff around, especially defense fleet 10 assets. I need to get Tigrex up to date on the C3 tool now that we have the account active. Evan the transfer tool a bit to advise the other commander on what to transfer.

The meeting needs to happen in January. The dates for the other 3 events are coming up quickly.

I need to update the drop calc, also a top priority.

Read the various threads I got floating around the forum. Lots of good info and things to think about.

3v3 event, solaris solo, TC Sunday, and the unannounced event. Lots of stuff to schedule and plan in addition to the refresh of Chaos for Spring/Summer.

Dead assets up to date. Battelog in a bit. FWL is getting some attention. I am teaming up with a few veteran pilots to give move stuff around for up to 3 jumps. There have been no assets moved around in quite a few turns. Meeting tomorrow and this week to improve their competitive position for the final run.

Dead assets updated for Sunday. FWL had a tough go of it with under 90 assets that were not APC. Mirage was competitive. Map 1 and 2 were not. Replay is under consideration along with allowing a limited transfer of assets. Balance must be guarded against filling the planet with knowledge of the incoming planet offensive.

Backup campaign priority is Blakists followed by FWL.

Ok reviewing videos from Capellans POV. Sandblasted all assets were near dead. Balanced match. Reviewing map 2.
Thunderrift was also fair.
Argument then switches to, close matches, would FWL have won with better stuffs.
Replay likely denied.


#30

I played faction leader for FWL. I tried to get stuff moved to get within the limits after losing Poznan. I will have WR finish the process. Planets at least have stuff on them now.

The schedule skipped Sunday the 10th. But the TC games will take out the 24th date for FWL. Options are to move FWL to the 10th, to the 22nd, or to March.

Blakists are moving stuff around. Planet Elgin involved. But Stone owns Elgin. Planet moved to stone. Asset transfers were still legal as planets were connected via jump routes. Elgin stuff moved to Capolla.

2/9 Sat FWL
2/10 Sun ???
2/16 Sat Stone
2/17 Sun Blakists
2/22 FRI FWL ???
2/23 Sat Capellans

Blakists are the backup calc for Saturday. Sunday is FWL in the next turn. Backup calc for Sunday TBD.

Trying to schedule the Chaos Meeting, Three V3, Solaris Solo, and prep for the TC Spectacular. All that while keeping on time with this weekend Chaos. We have to bump 1-2 teams up a week. Deciding between all in with FWL or bumping Blakists/Stone. Also have to prep Mini games and TC schedule for this weekend. Plus a tiny bit of server stuff. Busy!

Each team now has a jump route table in the planets tab. Plus a thread was made here.
Jump routes!

Ok so 3 drop lists for mini games are done. TC RingofFire is the Saturday TC map. Sunday TC map is TC Harvest. Backup map is TC Flatlands. FWL finishes off their campaign first. Then Blakists take the stage for Saturday. Sunday sees FWL once again. TC games at 19:00 UTC. Chaos at 20:00 UTC.

Finally, the rulebook is nearing completion. Need the meeting to finish off small details.
