4 Hour event

Design Intent:
This style event is a mix of both Main Arena play and historical matchups created through Special Events.  There is a loose style created in design to allow for both individual players and squads to conduct their own missions using choice of aircraft.  At the same time, a Side CIC/CO can volunteer and organize with other players and squads to wage a collaborative campaign against the enemy.  This is not a registered event and side forums will not be available.  Planning should be done through other formats available.

The design has incorporated all aircraft available in game for each side.  The Main Arena ENY list is the measuring board for the Early, Mid and Late War planes.  The loose style allows for players and squads to choose any aircraft with no limits.  The design is created to reward players and squads who choose to fly Early or Mid War planes in air to air victories and destruction of ground targets. 

The design of the Objectives is to push the Allied side for total annihilation of the Axis side.  This in turn creates a greater push for Axis to defend Berlin targets.

For any new players, you will not see your victories and or damage points when landing successfully.  The Special Events arena has the ability to record the information as logs.  The logs can be found at ahevents.net under the Events Logs tab and then in the Snapshots Log for Bombing Berlin.  The logs will be posted within a few minutes after the event has ended.  It will be divided between Allied and Axis, squad first by numerical and then alphabetical name and finally by ZZZ squad for those who don't belong to a squad.


Modified Changes:
1) Terrain doesn't reflect damage percentage on strats and Town.  Points are now awarded for each individual building destroyed at valid targets.
2) Changed the ack setting to 1.0.  Allied aircraft will receive damage operating low to Axis fields.
3) Opened manned guns for Axis side.  Players will only receive half the designated aircraft value for kills.
4) A2 White Flag is 500 points for Allied victory and 2500 points for Axis prevention.

That's bad - Bombers making the round trip seems unlikely. That's good - more sorties. That's bad - they'll be spread out and disorganized. That's good - chaos makes for unpredictability.

There was a glitch.  Cpttrips pointed out a checkbox that needed to be unchecked for the AI mission.  That box loaded up new arena settings that triggered a terrain change.

AI missions are still being tweaked.

I apologize for the inconvenience.  Next month should be smoother.

Thank you to all who participated.  Logs are available for the damage we were able to cause.  :D
