    Redeployside: Award

    As posted by Morfildur on r/MillerPlanetside

    To get Miller into shape and encourage learning and playing redeploy side, I'm holding a contest to see who can deploy the fastest. Since I have plenty of disposable income due to my (apart from PS2) spartan lifestyle, I'll put in some money as reward. I know redeployside sucks, but it's the best way to win, so we need to learn how to do it and the best way to learn is if you are competing against others.

    The rules:

    • No drama allowed, I want this to be a fun contest that promotes creativity, speed and fun, not a measurement of your electronic nether regions
    • The video that shows the most resecures in a 15 minute span wins, videos have to be posted on this subreddit and marked with "Redeployside"
    • Only uncut videos are allowed, maximum length 30 minutes
    • Comms have to be recorded in the video
    • Minimum amount of forces of the resecuring force: 2 full squads
    • Resecures only count if the enemy has at least around 2 squads (judging from the video) and the resecuring outfit has the majority of forces that are resecuring the point (judging from the video)
    • The resecures have to happen during a territory alert
    • It will be my personal judgement that decides the winner and after I have decided, the ruling is final. I will pick impressive or creative resecures first, even if technically another video should win. That means if you resecure against twice your numbers or use fancy ESF+Spawn Beacon resecures, you have a better shot than those only securing by spawning in the spawn room and outpopping
    • Contest ends when I return from work on Monday next week (2014-10-20 ~6pm CEST)
    • Winner will be paid out via paypal
    I tend to push redeploy and fast movements when I lead, so I'm keen to have an attempt at this.

    Questions:

    1) Are people up for this (StratGir tomorrow maybe?)
    2) Anyone willing to volunteer to be video recorder?

    We're pretty good at the whole heroic recovery from above kind of deal, but I have a feeling that the 15 minute requirement would kind of reduce the viability of stuff like Valk and Gal drops.

    Not if you preemptively send the gal/valc across the map to resecure somewhere.

    I usually have my Valk loitering around when using it to drop so I'm able to quickly position it into potential C4 bombing runs or deployments to other bases. I do the same with my Gal but it's much harder to hide on most maps :P

    Are we doing this? Because it sounds like an excuse to fly my valk, which I am ALWAYS up for.

    Why do both of us have a love for the currently least useful vehicle in the game? Must be something in the water.

    If I do run this, there will not be Valks.

    Sorry, but for redployment, Gals are much more reliable and just as fast.

    I don't care much about this, but if we do it for StratGir it won't actually affect my play in any way, so I am incredible neutral.

    I am for it in the sense that I believe RPS is actually pretty good at this (when they are concentrating) and it may raise some spirits to see this tested.
