Question for all players and/or @SlySniper : are there any of these scenarios playable with just base game, and of these, are any going to be equally fun / viable for both sides? To play H2H outside this comp (obviously).
I know that the British players sure loved this battle, for the Syrians they really had a hard challenge.
I will only say I wished I had added a little infantry support with the Syrians with some AT weapons.
Other than that I was pleased with the rest of the scenario design.
Like Slysniper said. Also, trying to go in blind as possible with regards to what the other side has, will also be great for balance.
Because you got relatively most points. I was also feeling that I fucked up, although I managed to get 3 out of 4 objectives (2 were taken last 3 turns, the 4th was was contested). I tried to target the Metis with my TOW, but it didn't want to area fire. Luckily it was taken out quickly by my MMGs. I was expecting some BTRs or some stuff, so I held back using the TOWs until last turns. Two missed, one managed some suppression.@SlySniper How did I get 100 points?! I really thought my performance would net me mediocre results, at best...
Anyways, from the briefing image I was able to locate the enemy mortar battery, but decided not to bombard the area because it would be unfair. So, you should avoid that in the future @SlySniper.
As for the battle itself, it was standard infantry fire and manoeuvre, one fire team moves, the other covers. Platoon MMG's were providing over-watch. TOW was used to destroy enemy HQ's and that nasty Metis position. Snipers destroyed a squad each. Humvees were great for support, at least the .50 cal one, cause I didn't get much chance to use Mk. 19 one (near miss from the ATGM knocked them out, without killing the crew...).
As the end of the match approached, my casualties started to mount. I am not yet sure if it was from my mistakes or my opponents actions (probably both).
