After staying at the top of the hill, we finally got to the point to cut south into Hastings. Now came the tricky part - avoiding AI. There came a time when a run through an open field was required. Now, I had a feeling that most everybody had gotten bored defending England from nothing and despawned (nobody had fired a shot yet). Time for the sprint! I make it! Everyone else is staying back and just now coming up as instructed. OH NO! A bren gun! Brrrap I'm dead from the AI tower in the AB that I couldn't and never even did see. I hung my head in shame, and McDeath took over for group2. We also had 1 more soldier injured, but becuase everyone else had stayed back they knew to avoid me. McDeath and Trueflow then lead the way. I was cussing myself as I was staring at the map screen, very upset that AI got me. How silly of me. I was going to join another flight over when I saw it on the target channel. "got it" We have captured a facility in Hastings. OH WOOT! MISSIONS UP! DO IT! MCDEATH GOT THE CAP! At this point it was a fight against an impossible enemy. Every British soldier with any pride (which they have plenty of) was going to spawn in and crush us. Lets not make it easy! A fierce fight broke out, and my first attempt to swim to the docks and try and rout the British was instantly repulsed. Tanks started rolling in and all hell was breaking loose. Things were very hot. But we held on. We gripped and dug and fought and guarded. I saw Axis soldiers running through open fields of fire trying to sap camping tanks, and other very honorable soldiers covering each other as best as they can. Then a different kind of fire starting blasting the spawnable, and I saw what it was and realized things weren't going to be pretty. Now it was bad with many tanks covering every approach imaginable. After holding out as best we could we could no longer keep a guard in the CP, there was no safety from all the enemies. Someone managed to break out N and cap another CP. Bet the Teamen didn't like that. I managed to escape with an LMG to a building across the way. I realized I could see down into the cap area! The LMG made too much noise and too much flashing and was far too inaccurate at this distance to do anything, but I could surely see a British head lying flat under the table. No grenades, no rifle, what to do? LUGER TIME! I killed 6 ei that were either recapping or trying to clear out mikeluv who had managed to get into the CP and guard it. Soon enough I was dead. The spawnable was recapped, and Britain kept their island. However, this was the most fun I've had in awhile. Could not have been done without the TROOPS that were with us. They followed orders, co-operated, communicated, and really made it a blast. The teamwork was legendary. Becuase of that, I want to list the soldats that were with me. I don't think I left anyone out, but if I did I apologize, I took this list after my death. *=special notice PILOTS: alpnkorp (GREAT LANDING) zaldimar conqueri SOLDIERS: leaderon* - great job of leading Group 1 mcdeath* - capped the frigign' spawnable! he wasn't the first there, but he did it! trueflow* - wonderful "sgt". always helping me out and keeping everybody in line corathss* - very active, really helpful. czack* - I give him much credit in the reason we got the cap. excellent job. strangel* - mission leader. helpful with attack points and .orders. sabot06 seryal koopman lele2 hemisal sixpence dover zombie73 diamond1* - green tag who lasted longer than I did!
