TRAILER V

 

 

 

General rules for the event: Try to stay in a battle line formation as much as possible. Battleships/battlecruisers will be using AP only.

Each team will have 2 commanders of the line one in the lead and one to the rear of each battle line. If one of the commanders is taken out of the battle, the ship next in line takes command as flag ship.







 

Chapter 1- First Contact

ywH8cF0UIZd5EkoPDnXqoV6eayNBVHAxj5tLShSvcTJ49GLAYJmvvSZk1JgBX_U9IbPnAeESRyxPsH0yjTWL99MWeS6_Cm-jsDUb5cO8M7iGrxyCaKaxfk4guB47Yfm1T3ziGCUk

UK mission  - The British will have their battlecruiser Division out and will try to eliminate all of the German battlecruiser fleet  - chase them across the map, if you have to. Don't lose more than 4 battlecruisers in the engagement. If you get down to 4 battlecruisers or are engaged by the German High Seas Fleet, fall back to the map border.

UK Ships -  You will have 9 ships at your disposal. Since we don't have any battlecruisers for the UK other then the Hood, we will use 9 Ishizuchi as a stand-in. If you have a white camo, use that to cover the ship and put on a jutland banner. Like this picture V.

Kaiserliche Marine Mission - The Germans will have their battlecruiser squadron scouting ahead while the main fleet stays behind in formation at spawn. If you come across the UK battlecruisers, engage them and take out 5 of their cruisers by luring then into the guns of the high seas fleet.

 

Kaiserliche Marine Ships - Since we don't have any WW1 era German battlecruisers in here yet, so we will just use a combination of Konig alberts/ kaisers with A hull but upgraded engines with speed flags and Graf Spees that equal 5 battlecruisers as stand ins. Use of torpedoes is prohibited. Germany will also have 5-7 battleships of tiers 3-5 (preferably Konigs and Kaisers) as backup in formation for a trap so the battlecruisers can lure them in to the crossfire.   

Chapter 2 - The Grand Battle

0zVXdhDPvyRdlFm1Cwk1sTcruDk43vRChripgVd54TFksyS_kyMXWRWH0vqQAC8RSnXWmJ-4AOBX3XcBRQW-ISUCiq9Y1bn2h9FdF1aO-SiramI6Y138VPhQAzEsKMlCLVSttriR

UK mission- The battlecruisers are on the retreat intercept the german fleet and engage them from a battle line  and surround the german fleet and pumble them into submission. Attempt to sink the rest of the German navy before they can try to escape to the map border.     

UK ships- 10 battleships and 2 other classes. 3 Queen Elizabeth classes including Warspite, 3 Orion class BBs , 2 Iron Dukes, 2 Bellerophon's,   and 2 Other can either be a tier 2 dd or a tier 2 cruiser for spotting and supporting fire no torpedos.  

Kaiserliche Marine Mission- Form a battle line and intercept the Grand Fleet. Try to sink 3-4 ships, or just inflict more casualties than the royal navy has before trying to retreat and avoid getting crossed by the T.

Kaiserliche Marine Ships- 9 battleships and 3 other types of ship. 3 Konigs, 3 Kaisers, 3 Nassaus. And 3 other types, being tier 2-3 cruisers and DDs for spotting and artillery support Torpedoes may only used in a fleet retreat and is limited to 1-2 reloads .


 

Chapter 3 - The Night Battle

pApc2ssrq63nJ_V8lyZRQiFM9LgDXlxUmOZuRLW51VDdoJa9SHCIE0j3mActlTqaVOXBeXVQZyOkVrxFG41nkXnrTXkzA5qdf1ONmyTKQsIXte1990mTb4zmQsY_2V2Qt7NLgdoy

UK mission- During a night battle, it is too dangerous for us to deploy our dreadnoughts due to the German’s superior night fighting equipment. Instead, you will command three destroyer flotillas, each led by a light cruiser. You will chase down the german fleet, your mission is to sink at least one battleship and damage at least five ships before the german fleet can make it to the other side of the map border.   

UK Ships - 9 Medea class DDs and 3 tier 2-3 Light Cruisers.

Kaiserliche Marine Mission- German mission is to to break though the british destroyer flotillas- Try to not lose any battleships but a minimum of three battleships should make it to the safety of the map border. Use your escorts to help scout and protect yourselves from the British DDs.     

Kaiserliche Marine Ships- 6 German BBs a tier 3-5 with at least 3 Nassaus preferably and for the battleships escorts you can have any tier 2-3 german cruisers and tier 2-3 german dds you must have a minimum of 2 ship from both classes light cruisers and DDs.

I actually put together mostly balanced rosters based on the ships present for the main battle.

If nothing happens and I can actually be home Friday night for it...l'll try to make it...I'll ask a few others in my clan if they want to participate as well.

One suggestion...for this event, it might be worthwhile setting the time limit for 30 minutes instead of 20, to give the ships about 10 minutes to get into battle lines from spawn points.

That's true...and it MIGHT be possible to merge Stages 1 and 2 in that aspect..but that would require a lot more people participating.

yeah but the maps are too compressed for something like that so most naval engagements have to broken into parts.

12 boat limit per side is the main constraint in the training room, isn't it?

yes 12 per side is all we can get.

Yes, please do so.  I can't participate (I work) but I would LOVE to see it.

Any thoughts of re-creating HMS Black Prince stumbling into the German line?

Also...probly a bad suggestion, but to replicate night battle conditions, you could turn cyclones on just for the final stage, so visibility would be down?

While I respect the attempt to do such an event I can't imagine it will go very well due to the simple fact that crossing the enemy's T in game is actually a bad maneuver while in real life you'd want to do it.

yes i have thought of this but very few maps let me use the cyclone right now for some reason ocean doesn't have so i might have to find a map that can take it. what ship was the HMS black prince?

She was a Duke of Edinburgh-class armored cruiser according to wiki...here's the link if you're interested:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Black_Prince_(1904)

Hmm, re-reading that particular wiki...would be interesting if could have one of the DD's ram the Nassau on the other side to recreate that incident as well, though with flooding mechanics being what they are...I'm not sure.

True enough, may could use a Caledon for a stand in, even though it wouldn't be anything like it if you wanted to...

 

Would be interesting to try this after the New Years, when we can use the Prinz Eidel Fredrich for the German CC's..
