Red Storm Release - Eastern Front Tournament

Post by Shards » Thu Sep 10, 2020 11:53 am

So, our first "proper" tournament is going to be tied into the upcoming release of the new Red Storm DLC.

Signups are open on the website https://www.slitherine.com/tournaments

This will be 3 rounds, each round lasting for 10 days.

The scenarios are all new/updated:

Karjelan Kesa (tournament settings) (Ger vs Rus, 1941) - Taken some learnings from the test tournament. Rounds reduced to 15 turns, Germans now have 2 HQ's and a force needs to hold both HQ simultaneously to get an insta-win. Also added new VP opportunities, with VP earned for destroying enemy units and large bonus VP's available for taking enemy HQ's. Also, reduced flags in central area and disabled spawning of troops on the victory locations.

Return to Raseiniai (Ger vs Rus, 1942) - A timeshifted version of the tank battle around the crossings of the Dubysa in Lithuania. Earn VP for killing opposing units and holding 8 objectives (4 nearer to Germans, 4 nearer to Russians). Germans can also try to break through and take the Russian staging areas (which give most of the supply in this scenario). 15 turns, Russians get no air support, Germans get 3 stukka reinforcements after a few turns, Russians get additional land units.

Kiev to Zhitomir (Rus vs Ger, 1943) - Adaptation of the scenario from Endsieg/Red Storm, Russian forces have re-taken Kiev in the muddy, muddy fields of Ukraine and are looking to push forwards. Earn VP for kills, taking enemy HQ's (2 per side) or holding the 5 central flags (including the tiny village of Chernobyl). 15 turns as well and no spawning of troops on the victory locations. Lots of BIG tank available.

Thanks!

Hello! Apart from the crown of "best armchair general" and of course the prestige among the ladies that the title carries, are there any other tangible rewards for winning a tournament?

So dumb question, do you have to actually have the new DLC to participate in the tournament, or is the tournament stand alone?

The maps come with the patch.

As long as you own any one OOB DLC, you can play in the tournament.
