Your mission is to push enemy marines out of the Western peninsula, Hel. Firstly, don’t allow enemy take our power station. Once the area is secured, proceed to Kloster and secure it. Keep pushing South until you reach friendly lines and regroup with the Germans. Be mindful of the fortified hill in the North and possible ambush opportunities when crossing pools of water.

  • (Optional) Locate enemy hidden HQ

  • Reinsertions are the same for all, including vehicles teams.
  • Platoon Commander has a one time reinsertion wild card at his disposal, call this in through HQ.
  • At predesignated times, reinforcements will be sent out of the base in the smallest transport vehicle which can hold reinforcements.
  • At predesignated times, an air transport will be sent out to pick up reinforcements from the base.
  • At predesignated times, an armed escort vehicle will be sent out to escort reinforcements from the base.
  • Upon insertion to the AO, reinforcements should stick together until regrouping with the main force in the AO.

Mission caught me off guard for the first half (or before I died anyway), was expecting a heavier engagement on protecting the powerplant, but got very distracted into making sure fireteams were in good positions to make further plans; long story short, movement up to my death wasn’t planned exactly as I wanted it.

I’ve gotta be harsh on my fireteam leaders: was expecting a LOT more autonomy and coordination between the two of you. I had to step in repeatedly to make A1 and A2 do basic bounding, which both teams seemed to be incapable of unfortunately. Also, pretty please listen to orders and do as you are asked; I considered dropping out multiple times as FTLs just wouldn’t listen to orders. It took Yellow team a solid 15 minutes of standing in open fields to finally get a move, it’s no fun for leadership really so my bottom line is: get your sh*t together guys, I can’t babysit you all the time.

Besides mission was good, our performance went according to harsh terrain and weird engagement distances but all in all, taking this as a black box, I think we did well considering the minor KIAs. Definitely would run again with FALCON, which I sorely missed.

I do see this complaint come up every now and then, but unless we bring it up as a topic for a Monthly Meeting or even as a wider topic during an OP itself (as most players are not too active on Discord and most do not follow or care for the Forum + Monthly Meetings), then I do not think we can get any real development on this can we?

What are you talking about? Henrik’s opinion on the FTL’s? What would you discuss about that on a MM? I’m a bit confused :smiley:

Think Karl refers to the casual attitude trend
