Hi everyone, 
 

@LachenKrieg, @ickylevel and myself are organizing a multi-crew contest on the Advance And Secure Server.
The goal is to demonstrate multi-crew game play, and have TC owners invite non-TC owners as the Gunner/Commander in their tanks. So the owner will be either driver/commander, or driver/gunner. The guest will be either the gunner, or the commander.
(First Prize)The non-TC owner IL2 pilot with the most kills on the winning team will get a free copy of Tank Crew.

(Second Prize) The TC owner from the tank with the most kills on the winning team will get a collector vehicle of choice (or a collector plane if you already own the vehicles).

(Third Prize) The gunner with the most kills on the losing team will get one collector vehicle of choice.

 

Contest Eligibility

All IL2 Sturmovik GBS members may enter into the contest. You must own at least one IL2 Sturmovik Great Battle Series modules to enter.

 

Contest Entry

To enter into the contest, simply provide the requested information as indicated in the official announcement post on the IL2  eSports and Events forum.

 

Contest Deadlines
All entries must be submitted on or before midnight GMT on Saturday, May 2 2021.

 

A 30 minute pre-game test will take place on Sunday, May 2 at 5pm GMT so that each team can confirm their assigned Discord channel is functioning properly. The contest will start at 5:30pm GMT. Please be punctual.
 

Rules

  • Teams of 2 players per tank covering the Driver, Gunner, and Commander positions (The idea is to invite IL2 pilots that do not own Tank Crew yet, but teams where both players own Tank Crew are welcome).
  • First Prize: If both players of the winning crew already own Tank Crew, then the first prize must be donated to a non- Tank Crew owning IL2 pilot of the winning crews choice. The first prize (copy of Tank Crew) cannot be exchanged for anything else.
  • Second Prize: The Tank Crew owner from the tank with the most kills on the winning team will get a collector vehicle of choice (or a collector plane if he/she already owns the collector vehicles).
  • Third Prize: The Gunner with the most kills on the losing team will get one collector vehicle of choice.
  • Players are encouraged to register in teams as long as at least one of the players already owns Tank Crew. Players that do not have a teammate are welcome to register for the contest, and we will try to assign them to a team if possible.
  • The tanks available will be: PzIV for Axis, KV1S for Allies. The mission created will be made to favor the best team and not the team with the best "tanks".
  • To win, your crew needs to be on the winning team and score the most kills.
  • For your team to win the game, your must either capture all the flags in a row (you cannot take a flag behind enemy lines), or hold more flags than the enemy team at the end of the round (1 hour)
  • Compared to the vanilla Advance And Secure game on the server, there will be no static or mobile AI, and no planes.
  • Before the contest, a team roster will be posted on the IL2 Tank Crew forum showing the tank teams (allied or axis), the tank number, and player names of each crew. Players must remain on the same team and with the same crew throughout the contest. Players that do not adhere to this rule will be disqualified from the contest.
  • Each player must log onto the Advance And Secure discord server and join his teammate in the designated channel. There will be one channel per tank. The Discord app can be downloaded for free from the following link: DiscordApp
  • Commanders will be able to use SRS to communicate with the other commanders on your team.
  • Non-English speaking crews are welcome on Discord. Each crew will be given a channel on the AAS Discord server for in-game communications, but Commanders are required to speak English when using SRS to communicate with the other Commanders on your team (Allied, Axis). This is to smooth communications between tanks on the same team during the match. 
  • Spawn camping kills will not count for the final score. Repeated spawn camping = ban from the competition

 

Please provide the following information as an answer to this topic  to register:

Register as a team (one TC owner + one non-TC owner):

  • Commander's forum (or discord) and in-game name:
  • Commander owns TC? : (yes or no)
  • Gunner's forum (or discord) and in-game name
  • Gunner owns TC? : (yes or no)
  • Preferred team: (axis, allies, no preference)

 

Register alone (need a teammate assigned):

  • Forum (or discord) and in-game name
  • Preferred team: (axis, allies, no preference)
  • TC owner: (yes or no)
     

Please use the same name as the one you have in-game to help us identify the winner!

If your preferred team is full, we may have to ask you to switch sides to keep the two teams at even strength. Depending on the number of players registered, we may also have to adapt the structure of the teams into sub groups, and play additional matches round-robin style to determine the prize winners.

 

Publicity
Each contestant acknowledges that the organizers may use a video recording of game play during the contest to be uploaded and displayed on YouTube for publicity purposes.

 

Release
By entering the contest and, if applicable, receipt of any prize, each entrant and, as applicable, winner agrees to release and hold harmless the organizers of the contest from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in a contest or any contest-related activity, or from the receipt or use or misuse of any prize, including claims or causes of action related to alleged damage to an entrant’s computer or electronic systems from downloading or using any material related to the organizers, or the IL2 Sturmovik website.

The competition will take place in Lille. Here are the locations of the flags:

The blue team (Axis) needs to reach Flag 5 to win.
The red team (Allies) needs to reach the flag 1 to win.
If none of team takes the last flag, the team with the more flags wins.
 

The flag you need to capture and the one you need to defend are indicated on the map by a sword/shield symbol:

Please provide the following information as an answer to this topic  to register:

Register as a team (one TC owner + one non-TC owner):

  • Commander's forum (or discord) and in-game name: DD_Friar
  • Commander owns TC? : (yes or no) Yes
  • Gunner's forum (or discord) and in-game name SidTheGit
  • Gunner owns TC? : (yes or no) Yes
  • Preferred team: (axis, allies, no preference) Axis, but happy to go Allied if required to balance numbers.

 

We are both happy to go driver / commander if you need extra taxis for non tank crew owners.

DD_FT will not be taking part with me - Your spreadsheet is incorrect, but I acknowledge you added him in good faith.

Thanks a lot to all the 37 people who participated! Congrats to the Allied team that won and to the winners! 
The KV1 was a bit overpowered, but the main price goes anyway to the german team thanks to the generosity of the winning gunner of the Allied Team.
The winners are :
Tank 2 of the Allied team:

- Commander : @ickylevel -> Wins a collector vehicle (2nd price 🏆)
- Gunner : Niels6464 -> Wins a Tank Crew game and Gives it to @p3miki    (1st price 🏆)

Tank 5 of the axis team:
- Commander: @Legacy763 -> Wins a collector vehicle and Gives it to the next best tank of the axis team ( @RTA_Gibe)  (3rd price  🏆)
- Gunner: @p3miki 


For future events like this we might use the same tank on both side in order to make it more balanced (with different skins of course).
We will organize also non-competitive PvE multi-crew events in order to focus more on team organization and communication because this aspect was a bit weak in the event organization.

Great event, really enjoyed it, many thanks to all those involved in putting it together.

 

Congratulations to Allies. Perhaps better organised than the Axis? The KV-1 helped a bit as well?

 

What would I do different?

Perhaps add a 5/10 minute timer into the mission start giving players the chance to spawn in but stay in and around their spawn area, then a text message is displayed that says something like "Go Go Go Let Battle Commence" or "Allez Allez Allez!" to start everyone at the same time.

 

Panzer IV v T34 perhaps?

 

Ask for someone to be a General for each side to co-ordinate the strategy?

 

But overall, where do I sign up for the next one? :)

 

Salute

Thx Friar! We have learned a lot from this first event. I am sure the next one will be a almost perfect :biggrin:.
Good suggestion for the timer. I was stuck in a lot of technical problems at the beginning of the game so the kick off was a bit messy.
Next contest will be Tiger vs Tiger I think to avoid any balance issue.
For coordination, I think we will organize a coop event before doing another contest. This allows to focus more on coms and strategy.
