Well, First off, I want to thank AMS for bringing us another opportunity to play at this great AO. I truly love this place. Can't wait for the next opportunity to do it again. CoST started out the day at the train station. I gave all my squad leaders their initial orders and we all moved out at game on. Tan put up good resistance in a few of the buildings but we were able to take our FOB fairly quickly. From that point, we moved out and were able to take most of the town after a few good fire fights here and there. I lost comms with most of the squads at that point. No idea why. I had two radios programmed and was still not able to raise anyone for most of the day. My radios were working fine because I checked quite a bit with people I would come in contact with. Very frustrating. I had little to no contact with most of the squads throughout the day. It makes it difficult to plan and coordinate anything without comms. However, the squads stepped up and did what they needed to do to get the job done. All in all, I felt like it was a very successful day for CoST. One story I have to share: Later in the second EVO, my son, Bug, was doing what he does best, cause turmoil, had himself a plan. Tan had the hotel with about ten or twelve guys on the roof. So Bug takes off walking down the street just as casual as you please and walks right into the hotel. Makes his way to the roof and walks over to the edge and waves down at me and my other son in the street. He then proceeds to safety kill about seven guys before he gets killed himself. My question is what were those tan guys thinking? He said several of them saw him up there but did not even bother with him until he started killing some of them. He used this same casual walk to walk up the street and sit down in tan territory and take out several tan as they staged up to try to make an assault towards green. This earned him an Operator Mag from one of the Admins. I guess some people only shoot you if you look aggressive. He was also able to walk up to Top who had several tan around him without any problem. Unfortunately, Top was already out at that point and talking to an admin. Conclusions: One thing that I have got to do for the next time I am CO is have a standing plan in place in case we do lose comms. I realize that some of you felt like there was no command but I certainly was there. I apologize for that. I know it is frustrating for the squad leaders to not have any direction. It is frustrating for me to not know the status of the squads. I also think that the DAM missions were a bit distracting during normal play. I think that a few of my squads were off doing those while I was trying to contact them. Wasn't crazy about the fact that a squad would just be pulled out to go do that and leave the position they were holding without replacements or letting me know so that I could get some replacements for them. Anyway, good job guys. As always, it was fun and can't wait to do it again. Rocketman out.
