Week 4 offensive plans
« on: July 12, 2007, 01:00:40 PM »
Ok, talking to a couple of members here I've realized (as have they) that we need to go on an offensive soon.

This week will be finishing off the touches of securing the roads and more agressive patrols and fortifying activities.  Next week it would be awesome to get all regions together on a massive offensive to purge the forests!

We need wins this week though!  To have our plan work out the way it should, we need to still be in the top 5 ranking so we can have a good foothold to push off of.  If we drop we'll have to strike out in desperation instead of a position of power.  Wins are vital this week!

We need to get moving on this now because it's difficult to swing people into action in a two day period of time.

Strategize here for this offensive and have your voice be heard!

We could push against the Skaven, seeing as how they keep getting close to us.  I know they are "aiding" us, but c'mon, we're being their puppets. 

A big "sweep the forest clean o' rats" could be just what the doctor ordered.  Make us puppets will they?  We'll give a taste a' the ole' Imperial steel for their trouble!

I think the problem with stating that we are following any particular race is that not everyone fights against that race. We should try to keep the plan specific but open to any opponent / battle (if that makes any sense)

I'm for the purging of the forest plan we just need to get the word out to all the Empire players we can.

I we report lots of battles for week four imagine the affect that we can have.

Absolutely.  Apparently we're already working together (who knew!?!), so let's make it official.

I would like to add. Despite what some people think. Reporting as many battles as possible is not what gets you a high rank. It is getting a consistant amount of wins. At the moment of writing this the war room shows that orcs have played the most battles today, 180 and they are coming last. wood elves have only played 86 battles but are coming first. It's about quality NOT quantity.

So if you need help winning battles just ask in one of the other forums for help.

Good point Mr. Anderssen.

Does anyone have any specific regional objectives that they'd like to accomplish with an offensive?

I'd propose not for this week, but next (as this week we're establishing our communication lines) that we begin a naval campaign.  Many of our forces, bolstered by the arrival of elements of the Imperial Fleet, begin using the Rivers Talabec and Delb to move and attack enemies with unprecedented swiftness and un-Imperial aggressiveness.  Combined with attacks from our roads and outposts, we form a "Hammer-and-Anvil" style offensive to clear the forests and locate that accursed Crown.

Wiss, perhaps that could be the "striking and noticeable" style that earns us recognition and some "Hey, remember what the Empire did?" comments...

Just a suggestion.  It's, of course, up for debate.  My force is volunteered in advance for nautical duty, however, should the opportunity arise.

Good Idea but I suggest we attack Orc/Goblin encampments first as they just got a lot of reinforcements from the east and if they join they will become an unstopable mass!!!

The idea with river control is good but we would have to delay the purge the forest thing for another week :/ but I like it though. Maybe we could bring the Stir River Patrol (Elite river fighters) and ships of Engineer Gunboats patroling the rivers??? That would give us an advantage. What do ya think???

Personally I feel that the High Elf's devious backstabbing couldn't have come at a better time. We were looking for an opponent for next week's big push, one who wasn't already at the bottom of the leader board - and oh looksie, we have one.

Well, many ideas here.

Race specific attacks are always a bit troublesome because not everyone has that opponent.  We could write it in the fluff, but I'm not sure how many people really do want an open fight with the Asur.

I like that idea Michael W.  Would that be a good idea for the following week then or should we have an offensive hit at the exact same time as we have riverboats coming upstream?  That is definitely different and I really do think we should use it, but the only question in my mind is when?

I too am liking the idea of taking the waters back, in reality I feel they should have been the first thing the other armies would have fought for to ensure supply lines but they were all concerned with land grabs.

Stirland armies would seem naturaly adept at this but I think fluff wise theyr fleet would be not much more than rowing boats as the province is so poor, maybe there should be a few regiments from Nuln setting up gun emplacements for the Stirlanders to bring the enemies to.

Nordlanders would be good at this as well. 

Sounds like a good plan that we can agree upon.  Branching out into the woods after securing the roads (which is being solidified this week) with support from the rivers.

We could even include that the materials and labour for our new roads are coming to us by river (similar to the gold rush of '49) where they hear there is paid work from the Emperor. We should not forget that whilst we are all here there is still a whole Empire of people surrounding us.

I like it.  :)  And regarding the "when," let's put this in for this coming week - in conjunction with our "through-the-forests" offensive.  A hammer-and-anvil blow.

We could include reports of the Imperial Ironclad paddlesteamer that was used during the Storm of Chaos. One of the best bits in the campaign - reading about it unloading knights and steam tanks directly into the chaos lines...

Sensational!  I like that one.  I am afraid this is the first I've heard of it, though!

Patch, would you and those familiar with this awesome Ironclad please write up some fluff and/or mention it in your reports?

I apologise, the Orcs had considered it, perhaps a little crudely but we can still rule the waves!
