Coming This Week End WWII Online 19th Anniversary Special Event

When: D-Day, Saturday, June 6, 2020. Time: 11:00 AM server time (PST) or 2:00 PM EST or 6:00 PM GMT. Where: The "Special Event" server (you will see the server in your Playgate options)

For Mac users, it's your server selection (Training / Events).

Duration: Four hours.

Details: The day is June 6, 1943 In this “what if scenario” The Allies are determined to strike against the Axis in France before their Atlantic wall is complete and while Axis forces are stretched to the East in Russia. In striking early, the Allies will not be as well-equipped or organized as they were a historically (a year later) and in some cases the Axis forces will be stronger as they have not suffered the historical losses yet, especially in the LW and the KM.

Operation Rapid Strike will be played on the Special Event server. The campaign server will be locked for the duration of the Special Event (4 hours planned).

In this scenario there will be only a few light armor tanks in garrison supply so the first few hours of the event will be infantry, navy and air focused.

Moveable brigades loaded with heavy armor will arrive to the front lines about 90-120 minutes after the event starts.

In Operation Rapid Strike the Allies have chosen speed (attack in 1943) and closest distance between England and France for the main attack – Dover to Calais!

The Allies will have secured a beach head at Calais and moved less than 30 km inland before meeting Axis resistance (Calais, Wissant, Marquise, Ardres, Boulogne and Gravelines start Allied with all Allied FB’s except Gravelines and Boulogne whose FB’s will be Axis. Allies will have air in Calais

A secondary Allied landing at will be simulated at Vlissigen with Breskins, Ijzendike, Westkapelle and Veere starting Allied giving us two locations for Air, sea and land action. Allies will have air in Vliss.

The key is that the first 2 hours will be fighting without heavy armor and will be air, navy and infantry focused until armor arrives. We expect to recognize a few top performing players and next week we will roll out the Allied and Axis scoring rules so we can declare a winner for bragging rights at the end of the event. Mark your calendar and save a few hours on D-Day 2020 to fight along side your squaddies and join Operation Rapid Strike!
