Just a reminder to everyone, we are aiming to be more inclusive with this special event and make a larger effort in inviting the server#1 crowd to join us for the event. This is partly why Cobra has ensured that the modset required for the event is purely accessible through Steam Workshop to make it as painless as possible.

The admin team will try to remember to advertise this event during server#1 gamenight, but it would also be great if everyone who frequents server#1 helps to pass the word around.

Steam collection is also missing CBA_A3, and I don't think anything we have in the ZClient is in there? (ShackTac UI, advanced movement, mag repack, ...)

Bringing in more players from the Server 1 crowd, we'll probably need to inform them about the (current) ACRE-issues with TS 3.2.1 ASAP? (3.1.10 is known to work... I have been told, but have not personally tested and confirmed, that the newest beta version works as well)
Also advise as many as possible to read up on the different mechanics introduced with ACE, especially the medical system, and have their ACRE properly installed and configured to avoid issues just before or during the event?

Does anyone have decent guides and/or manuals to share?

I made a lot of test in editor with Faces Of War MOD.Noticed that antitank weapons as Bazzoka PIAT and PFZ are very weak against armor vehicles and Tanks .If we use that vehicles maybe will be unbalanced.Any suggestions?

Seems balanced to me, Olympus. AT Weaponry back then wasn't as potent as nowadays, which is why PAKs and such were a thing but hardly are today - and why tank-on-tank battle and using mines, explosives and other sorts of techniques that nowadays would go under 'guerilla warfare' were common in dealing with enemy armor, if no friendly armor was available.

Don't get me wrong, it's definitely possible to knock out armored vehicles with infantry AT, just a lot harder due to less punch and, most importantly, less range. A german panzerfaust had an effective range of 150m on the later versions (only distributed in early '45), the most common panzerfausts were 30-60m range.

So my suggestion is that we just move away from the idea of 'QRF' that we commonly use where we spam some arbitrary amount of armor at the players half-way into the mission - instead, utilize enemy armor as the highlight of the mission. Destroying a single well-placed Tiger can be the entire objective of an infantry operation. In other words: if you encounter enemy armor as infantry, you're supposed to shit your pants and then figure out a way of dealing with that threat with everyone pooling resources to do so - it's world war 2, armor is scary.

Did you change the mods name for the server? like faces of war to @fow or was that the file name that you got when downloading? Because I went on the test server with all the mods but enhanced movement and I was not getting any roles showing up.

Only server#4 will be setup to accept the special event mods. If you need to test a special event mission or simply test your special event mods, you need to do it on server#4 (port 2330).
