Aerodrome: TMW Week 4 Trader Contracts (Blue Spawn)
« on: August 02, 2015, 06:41:50 pm »

Welcome to the final week of regular season Aerodrome play. This is a make or break week for multiple companies. Those that didn't manage to score very well, don't get too down. This was a single ship event. These sorts of events, while more open to smaller clans and new people, can be problematic due to the number of variables in them. I can understand the frustration of being teamed up with people you either don't get along with or people who make dumb moves. Why this event was up to you on signups. Hopefully this would allow you to select matches and alleviate some of that frustration.

3v3 is also another factor that may have limited some of you. But that depends how much you do 3v3 vs 2v2. This event was originally designed with 2v2 in mind but was changed to 3v3 because 3v3 is often neglected and it can provide a superior match in terms of tactics. That extra ship factors in greatly. 3v3 also can allow less experienced to shine better as the extra ship can change an engagement around. We've already seen a match during the event where a team that was down by many and almost lost, turned it around and won.

So to those that won't be making the finals, I hope this event provided some entertainment for you. Maybe you learned a few things from it. Don't give up. Take what you learned and apply it to the next event.

As a reminder to all participants of the Aerodrome, there will be 2 signups this week. This first signup is for the Trader Contracts. Meaning you are electing to be on Blue team and start with the Cargo first. The Rival Contracts will be posted on Wednesday for Red Spawn. So brave ones, add your names in. Rivals, plot with villainous grins and creepy laughs as you wait for your contracts to open.

There will be weekly prizes so be sure to keep track of your teammate names in case you win.

However for this signup, all I need is your company name and CEO. If you did not register last week, I'll need you to do full registration for this week. Example from the early registration thread for those newcomers:

Company: Zukasauce Inc
Mission Statement: "To spread Zuka's love through all the world via his sauce."
Base of Operations: Starostrog, Guild
Logo (Optional): <Artistic Zuka Sultry Grin image>
CEO: Zuka
Steam ID, In game Name: Zuka2016, Zukamania

Now because this is the official signup week. I need you to add one more bit of vital information...your match choice.

So reply with:

Contract Requested: <Insert map name here>

Then also if you could state if you are willing to mercenary for other matches, that would help a lot too. Basically means your official match counts but the others will be bonus battles to help fill matches. So "Willing to Merc: Yes/No"

If you already signed up on prior weeks or pre-registration, just list the contract you want and merc willingness.

Alright, thats it. Again, there is no long term commitment with this event. Take contracts as often or as seldom as you like. Twitch streaming info will be posted in the schedule thread later. If you are a new team, you will get passwords and mumble server info sent to you on here via PM from me.

Remember, all point payouts are split between ships on your team.

Week Four Trade Contracts:

Contract 1: Averna's Best Interests
Map: Water Hazard
Cargo: Luggage/Misc
Payout: 300


It seems the oil deal got Chaladon's attention. Averna is now sending an negotiator to see if a more official deal would be possible. They have hired out their own passenger transport to ferry them up. However, the negotiator's luggage and various unrelated items got left behind. Wish I could say it was just a few things but unfortunately this negotiator doesn't travel light. Either that or they are expecting to stay for awhile.

Whatever it is, all that matters is there is a contract and we can see this job done.

Contract 2: Yeshan Commitment
Map: Canyon Ambush
Cargo: Munitions/Military Parts
Payout: 300


Well it seems the Yeshan Way was not as glorious through propaganda as Yesha hoped. Much of the leaflets turned into toilet paper for the locals. However, deals were reached. It seems the locals are willing to stay apart of Yesha if Yesha holds to their protection bargains. Now with their fleet still struggling, they can in no way hold true to much of this. But the locals were willing to compromise. Meaning, Yesha needs to deliver on a bunch of arms and military grade parts that the locals can use to fortify and keep regional bandits at bay.

The old Tiger would have laughed at giving weapons to locals but this new Tiger seems to be just the opposite. Hopefully it won't bite them later but for now, we've got a contract. Lets get to it!

Contract 3: Anglean Aid
Map: Fight Over Firnfeld
Cargo: Medical
Payout: 300


It appears matters are more turbulent in Anglea than we thought. There has been a series of altercations between the political parties in Anglea. One party is for a stronger more aggressive Anglea that calls for an end to all trade deals and a resumption of raids. The other is more aligned with our interests and wants to open the country.

A series of rallies turned a bit violent and what medical facilities they have are overloaded. Much of this information is late coming so I'm sure it has gotten a bit worse by now. Either way a contract has been issued for a medical shipment. Get on up there and fulfill it!

Contract 4: Fjordlander Relics
Map: Fjords
Cargo: Relics
Payout: 300


The efforts of Ettingscove only really put a bandage on the situation. The blood has not stopped and now the king is ordering some of the priceless artifacts of Fjordlander antiquity to be sold to help fund relief. It is a desperate move but one that is subsiding tensions. Whether they love or hate him, the people respect the royal family.

This move has of course also generated much criticism. Mostly from the Barons who weren't doing anything. But that doesn't matter much to us. We've got a contract to secure these priceless relics and deliver them to buyers down in Vyshtorg.

Contract 5: Justice of the Sands
Map: Dunes
Cargo: You Don't Want To Know
Payout: 300


Well, the Nalmese and their allies succeeded in defeating that upstart tribal warlord. Now in accordance with tribal laws in the area the defeated is to be paraded to all the tribes as a reminder that justice has been served.

The disturbing part is, this warlord is not all in one piece or alive anymore. We really tried to turn this contract down but the Nalmese demanded that if we wanted trade rights to continue, we must do this. For some reason they have become very suspicious of our involvement in the area. Almost as if they suspect we were supplying the warlord along with them...which is purely not true!

So, just get it done quick is all I can say. The Nalmese prepared the remains for distribution so that is one worry off your mind.
