    Hello UO!

     

    The PRO will be hosting an ARMA 3 invitational event on our server. PRO personnel will be contacting other ARMA communities as well as advertising this event on /FindaUnit with the hopes of seeing some new players on the server and showing the ARMA community what UO is all about.

    There will be no pre-slotting or pre-mission briefings. Instead, this event will use missions that already exist on the primary server. Our target mission mix will be 50% TVT and 50% COOP. Target mission size is 60-100 players.

    5 W's:

    WHO: All interested members of the ARMA community

  5. Hey Mission Makers,

     

    I'm in the early stages of reaching out to a German ARMA community. My intent is to run a 2 x mission event using the new German mod-pack content we added. 

     

    Are there any missions makers who would be interested in creating 2 x missions for this event? We could even use some existing missions and just swap out the gear/vehicles.

     

    If so, please reply in this thread and we can go from here.


  6. UO,

     

    We have been invited to participate in two upcoming events at AFI.

     

    1.) The first event is a reboot of their Battle of Hakamaki scenario. It will occur on their server at 1730z on 27 JAN 2019. 

     

    Here is some additional info: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BXgkhkkk_kmSkcqz-PFN2Z9b-0D_c6WQniMMHmjmpDg/edit?usp=sharing

     

    2.) The second event is called Operation Wet Boot - a Falklands War scenario. It will occur either on 22 or 23 FEB 2019. 

     

    More information will be provided as we get closer to event day. 

     

    If you are interested in attending the first event, please be on our TS on 27 JAN 2019 around 1630z to check-in. We can hop on their server after. I will post some reminders on Discord as we get closer to event day.

     

    Thank you for your time.

  11. Hey UO,

     

    Mission Feedback.

     

    Sustains.

    [Platoon] BMD & Troop integration. Mission 1 was some of the best mechanized infantry coordination I’ve seen in a while. Blue (114), Darkside/Cephei (115) & AFI Squad (116) coordinated with each other to establish effective SBF & security postures over and over. Every 2nd platoon BMD I saw was firing from a position that never risked harm to infantry. I especially liked the react to contact drill that the Platoon conducted as we approached the second ORP.

     

    [Platoon] Platoon briefings. I was very impressed by the work done by members of second platoon. We repeatedly reviewed and rehearsed the platoon plan for mission 1. I think everyone in the platoon knew what was going on and it made us much more effective as a result.

     

    [Company] Leadership Communication. Lateral communication between the squad leaders enabled the platoon to be more effective. Several times I gave squad leaders a specific task & purpose and orders to execute and they did this without problem. Coordination between platoons was decent during mission 1 as well, especially as we pushed our way up to ADA site 1.

     

    Improves.

    [Company] Battle damage reporting. It was difficult to build an accurate picture of how many enemy forces were destroyed. Squad leaders need to gather this information from their squad members and feed this up. If I had this problem, I assume that Company command had this problem as well.

     

    [Company] Blue-on-Blue. We were on the firing side of one blue-on-blue engagement. This is unacceptable and I take responsibility for it. The breakdown in situational awareness and hasty react to fires caused improper PID and resulted in a friendly squad destroyed. I believe there was another blue-on-blue incident in mission 1 between 1 & 3 platoon. Every leader (TL+) is responsible for minimizing this occurrence.

     

    [Company] Rehearsals & Back briefs. Mission leadership (Squad Leader+) needs to do a better job of meeting ahead of time. It is unrealistic to assume that we as a community can perform company level missions without greater preparation. We aren’t as rehearsed and it shows. Spending more time rehearsing would result in us being more effective.

     

    Event Feedback.

     

    Sustains.

    Coordination with outside groups. It was a pleasure working with Blahh and the leaders of AFI before, during, and after the mission. I hope we can run more events together in the future.

    Respawn system. I enjoyed the respawn system. This was the first time I included this in an event. I’ll be working on improving this and trying to make it more useful.

    Mission performance. Thank you to the mission makers and those who came out to test the missions.

     

    Improves.

    Gear loadouts. I’ll take a look at the gear loadouts and try to optimize them for Part 2.

    Mission Testing. I announced and ran 2 test sessions (09 JUN, 02 SEP) in support of this event. We had 2 to 3 people show-up. Thank you to those that did – you helped us find errors and correct them. In the future, if we have 10-20 people show up, we could find even more errors and get those corrected. I’ll continue to run test sessions, log the errors, and fix them to the best of my ability.

    Briefing Material dissemination. I’ll work on coming up with some new ways to get briefing material disseminated ahead of events. And I apologize for not putting the pilots in the PM thread for mission leadership.

     

    Next steps

    1. I plan on working on the next UO Invitational Event. Not sure when this will occur – I have other tasks I need to complete before I devote any energy towards this endeavor.
    2. Operation First Strike Part 2 development will continue. Really excited about this and we’ll be looking to improve on all the lessons learned from PT 1.

     

    Finally, please post any media content to the event here. We’ll consolidate it and use it as content for our future Reddit posts.
