View Full Version : "The Battle Beneath the Waves" - MP Campaign!
08-02-2005, 11:14 AM
Well after weeks of planning and recruitment I am pleased to announce the launch of our new Multiplayer Campaign - "The Battle Beneath the Waves."
Our campaign will begin during the "Happy Times" of 1940, and progress through the defeat of the Kriegsmarine in 1945.
Our missions are 100% custom, and the degrees of realism will progress as the campaign does.
We have three Flotillas - Two N.A. and one European. We can create more if the interest deems it necessary.
I invite all to join us and partake in this truly unique event!
If you want some more info, or would like to enlist please email me at email@example.com, or visit our website at TheArtofWarfare.net (http://pub.theartofwarfare.net).
I hope to cya all on the High Seas!

Could you provide a bit more info? I'm afraid the item on your site isn't very informative.
I suppose it'll be co-operative? Human players vs AI.
How will this be played - by scenarios? If so how long does a scenario last?

Yes, you are correct. It will be a Co-Op MP Campaign.
The missions will be created according to a semi-historical timeline. I envision a typical mission lasting between 1-2 hours.
All skippers will use TeamSpeak and in-game chat to communicate with each other. We are still finalizing the setup regarding comm usage - we want to make it as minimal as possible.
The entire campaign will last a month or more - taking place once a week, Saturday evenings.
We will be tracking tonnage and awarding medals according to each Skippers performance.
MP play is really fun, I encourage all SHIII players to explore this aspect of the game. We play at least two nights a week as a "team" and have an absolute blast.
I hope you decide to join us, you won't regret it! :up:

pls tell me you guys use RuB 1.42 (1.43 when it comes out)? :lol:
08-03-2005, 11:04 AM
Naw, we use stock 1.4b. Best for MP never causes any issues. RuB can cause issues when using Ubi.com's MP.

Yup, most MP play should be Mod Free ;)
But, believe me, it is a BLAST nonetheless! :up:
We sail tomorrow nite @ 9PM EST. Fire me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to sign up...

Just a quick Update :)
We set sail on our first mission this past Saturday. There were 16 Skippers total - 8 per Flotilla.
We attacked convoys SC-7 and HX-79 with a mixture of Type VIIs and Type IX Boats.
The missions began with all Skippers departing from their repective bases. I can tell you that is was AWESOME to see the subs form up into a Wolfpack whilst leaving their pens. I hope to post some screenies shortly.
I highly encourage all to participate in this adventure. It adds a whole new dimension to the game.
We hope to cya on the High Seas! :up:
