Defying the Odds

 

Brought to you by HelicopterEnthusiast and zigTtzag(zTt)

After testing a mission a few months back zTt was like why not create a campaign? I refused saying it was too hard. We can make more missions in the same amount of time. A few weeks back however the campaign started being constructed! Now the campaign being constructed was revealed to our website subscribers alone but the download links and such will be available to all!

 

Story:

 

   In Afghanistan there was a leader called Dahid Kazat. Kazat was a patriot. He loved his country and his people. He wanted his country to prosper by taking advantage of the oil reserves located at Lythium. It was a clever idea and it would surely result in his country prospering and his people forgetting about the immense difficulties they face due to being poor. There was an issue however.

 

   Oil attracts the Strong Countries of the world. Especially when in 2035 oil reserves get more and more scarce. Because of the above, NATO decided that Kazat had not what it takes to deal with the power that oil reserves would provide him. Due to that NATO demanded all oil reserves from Kazat while providing no help to the people of Afghanistan.

 

Kazat did not agree! They tried to bribe him, they threatened his family and yet he said no.

 

   So NATO found a nice way to get rid of Kazat. They chose to fund rebel organization Al Shilak. They gave them weapons, ammunition and all needed in order to bring down Kazat and they succeeded. Kazat was killed and propaganda made the people of Afghanistan to agree about the homicide. Yet again an issue arose.

 

   The people of Afghanistan did not only agree with the murder. They also agreed with whatever Al Shilak supports. That is that NATO is to blame for everything. That now that Al Shilak controls the country they should be the ones dealing with the oil reserves. That the people of Afghanistan should rebel!

 

   From that point on, Lythium has turned into a battlefield. NATO was unable to deal with the locals and after many casualties they lost control of Lythium and they are now dealing with a force that wants to expand Afghanistan borders!

 

Here is when you guys arrive.

 

   Although no country offered to help in fear of casualties, Greece is sending their best Green Berets force! Four men from Greece Special Forces have been dispatched to Lythium to help NATO regain control. NATO agreed to support them. If they commenced all too dangerous operations…

 

Greece agreed. Why? Nobody knows if anybody knows.

 

 

Units:

 

Task Force: Blue Lighting

 

Team Leader – Chiefly Alexandros Petraklos

He has been through everything! Graduating from multiple Military Academies and becoming an expert in a variety of sectors was a torment. Actually it was not. Petraklos was born for such operations. What tormented him was the bureaucracy and the needed encounters with officialdom in order to become a Green Berets Team Leader.

Marksman – Sergeant Ioannis Kalinos

A graduate from the Basic Sniper Training for Special Operations Academy. The time needed to read that equals with the time Kalinos needs for 3 headshots at a 1,5 km distance! That is exactly why the Green Berets recruited him. Disregarding his tension to remain silent, a Blue Lightning slot is surely his.

Explosive Specialist – Sergeant Konstantinos Koromilas

His graduation certificate comes from the Evelpidon Military Academy. Apart from that, he does not talk much. All we know is that he likes explosives and whatever causes mayhem. Welcome aboard Koromila! You are just the person we need for the Blue Lighting Green Berets team.

Medic - Corporal Lambros Katechakis

Coming from 7 yearlong studies he graduated from the Army Officers Military Academy. AOMA, which he finds boring, trained him to become a Medic and be an expert in Emergency Medicine. After his graduation, he was assigned to the Green Berets Blue Lightning team and has since found out that the real military is by no means boring.

Head Quarters – Lieutenant Tasos Balaoritis

Also a graduate of the Army Officers Military Academy but not a Medic. Balaoritis was trained to become a Military Psychologist. Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder or any sort of disorder has no chance in front of his skills. Calm as anyone can be he provides support to all Green Berets operations.

Pilot – Corporal Antonis Fidelis

Only typically did he need to graduate from the Air Force Academy. Piloted his first chopper at the age of 15 and his first plane when he was 17. That is what happens when your father owns a Flight School. Due to his amazing skills in Army Aviation vehicles, the Green Berets Blue Lightning team immediately recruited him.

College Semester has began! That means that girls will RTB and I (yes mom ... I will also study :sneaky2:) As I was saying, we will now take a break from mission making. We need to recharge our batteries because the creation of Chapter 2 and 3 awaits! Stay Tuned!!!

 

...More to Come...

 

 

Please note, after the testing of a mission it may take time for the release. That is because enhancements recommended by the testing group need to be implemented and details fixes need to be done too sometimes.

 

Feedback is always welcome but since this is our first campaign feedback is very important. All missions have and will be tested but if any sort of glitch or bug appears please report it here in the forums or more directly here. Also recommendations or describing things you like will also be very helpful. Making a campaign is really hard hence your assistance will surely help.

 

This is the one and only Greek Voiced Campaign so enjoy :sun:

No feedback means no bugs so at least that is nice.

Now, details Fixing of Episode 02 has been completed successfully so ...

 

Episode 02 - Explosive Attention RELEASE!

 

pic1.jpg

 

 

Alhtough the details that are now fixed we had a really nice time organizing our strategy and commencing the operation on this episode. Hope you all enjoy!

Please also note that a Marksmen DLC dependency has been added to the Campaign. We will most likely not add any more dependencies. The Marksmen DLC was already present but was forgotten by myself.

b)Marksmen DLC

 

Hope positive or negative feedback will be provided. All download and mission detail links are included in the first post of this thread.

Yet no feedback means no spoilers in the comments. Cool!

So the release date of Episode 03 has arrived, that means ...

 

Episode 03 - Mayhem Providers RELEASE!

 

pic12.jpg

 

In this mission we had some awesome firefights! And we were all great. We would also be baked had it not been for our Marksman! His support proved essential due to our strategy plan. What will yours be?

Now allow me to suspect that some of you do not read the Important Details section of the mission. Due to that, it is in the task's description anyways, but please note:

e)The SPEAR has got a generator needed to be dealt with too.

Good missions many times also means big missions and this one is indeed big. 25 Mbs. That is due to media and scripts. Lots of scripts.

The final mission of Chapter 01 however although big is finally ready so ...

 

 

Episode 04 - Natural Holocaust RELEASE!

 

webmispic30.jpg

 

 

Episode 04 was a mission where we did not manage to follow a stealth approach. We had a nice plan but adrenaline was pumping for quite some time to avoid a rambo movie. Anyways, maybe you will be able to stay undetected long enough?

Please note that this mission has a minor bug for reasons yet unknown:

4.]Bugs:

4.1]Minor: The tasks might take up to 1 minute to appear after you complete them on some computers. Will try to fix at some point.
4.2]Serious: None

Thank you very much John !

 

The 25 MB of the missions are not a problem actually and since it's a coop , everyone can just download the mission instead of receiving mission files!

 

Congratulations for the release !
