Missions are up!

  • Firefight
  • Show of Power/Force
  • Frontline
  • Decapitation
  • Annihilation

Overall they are the most Direct Action of probably all the Direct Action scenarios, so let's take a look at what we'll be playing:

  • Firefight - Kill Specialists/LTs/Army points, search some panoplies and 2 classifieds. All scored at end of game. (Extended DZ, AD3 buff, no Retreat)
  • Show of Force - Kill Army points, search some panoplies, sit on objectives (with a TAG) and 1 classified. All scored at end of game. (TAG needed for max OP)
  • Frontline - Dominate sectors and 1 classified. All scored at end of game. (INTELCOM, Retreat doesn't end the game.)
  • Decapitation - Kill LTs/Army points and 2 classifieds. All scored at end of game. (Extended DZ, no LoL, no Retreat, public LT)
  • Annihilation - Kill Army points and 1 classified. All scored at end of game. (no Retreat)

All five missions are scored entirely at the end of the game, so there is no per-round scoring. You are strongly encouraged to alpha strike your opponent off the table in every scenario especially as there is no Retreat in three of the five scenarios at all and Frontline isn't ended due to Retreat.

Specialists are not required (or even helpful) for completing anything except classified objectives, and even then you can just do Secure HVT in all but two. Two missions have extended deployment zones making Infiltration and its Inferior equivalent slightly worse and Forward Deployment a bit better.

A whopping four missions involve killing Army Points and the fifth basically requires it as you are just trying to out-point your opponent. 

The whole thing just seems a bit, boring? I'd have liked a bit more variety for a five mission tournament.

I'm inclined to agree with you, I'm kinda dissapointed in the choice in missions.

On the other hand, my brain isn't going to melt from overthinking like it did last year.

I must say I agree with @Phlyk and @Gamma Ray that I expected something more than just killing missions but what bothers me most is the Show of Power mission. I know it is TAGline and all but this mission basically forces you to take a TAG, 3 objective points are a lot. Some armies and especially sectorials have no other option other than picking Scarface which is not really an easily survivable TAG, especially when Frenzy triggers.

Well I guess it's time to buy a Gorgos.

Hnngg. It's a tough call. I suspect a Gorgos with symbio support is a lot better than it gets credit for but with so much weight on classifieds being able to take a unit with Str is a big deal.

None of those missions have more than 2 points of classifieds, several only 1. There's very little weight on specialists at all.

Fair shout. It really does seem like an odd mission selection.

It's the big tournament for a season which is all about tags. Of course it's going to use tag missions. I don't think that's weird or dunb. If you're all about winning you'll bring the faction you think you can play best with a tag. 

That said, all of them being fighty isn't particularly interesting

49 days to do, getting excited!

Any idea when the schedule will be published, @Interplanetario?

@Interplanetario

The website is down, does this mean that you're updating it, or that Pulpi has hacked it in order to highlight the number of restaurants that sell Octopus in Vigo, destroying his family.
