A very eventful trade run that confirmed those of the opinion that MoldZ is not dead, much to our regret in hindsight especially since we were filled with new recruits and were lax on our other security needs such as the availability of reliable Scouts. Two new recruits, Benergy and mxftw from the Volunteers showed up and though the former demonstrated extreme capability and discipline, the latter was too proud and refused to learn from his incompetence ultimately resulting in his death at the hands of two premiums, though saved his honor by avenging himself and killing the two premiums causing them plenty of grief and eliminating half their stuff by burning it in a furnace while they were respawning which was very instrumental in saving the lives of his comrades.
The group started off to Grimdale with numbers already dwindling because Martin(our original scout) had to go and Hotcock was needed elsewhere, the group first encountered was two speed potting premiums, one of which was armored and such. After they killed a customer to acquire weapons to fight us - the group fought in open battle where the Thorned Crowns and grey bows broke their speed charges and killed them but killed Mxftw who shamefully turned his back on the enemy like the coward he was instead of standing his ground(you cannot outrun a speed potting premium subhuman anyway). It was said he could’ve survived if he didn’t miss out on the gearing before the trade run where he would’ve received Thorned Crowns to protect him. Eventually they kept respawning to try to get back at us. Realizing the situation - Benergy, the only scout left was then converted to an iron fighter from mxftw’s corpse and demonstrated his capability as a fighter and helped us mop them up. The customers, not under our direct control proved to be a liability and so had to be abandoned.
Mxftw returned as a leather/scout on the battlefield as it was raging while most of the main force left for want of potions and to properly gear Benergy in his new role. Mxftw using surprise and ambush eliminated the two premiums in their iron-chain armor gear and finished them off, restoring his honor and contributing it in saving a comrade in a future event. He proceeded to burn half of the items so the dirty premiums won’t get it but was killed before he could finish it all off. Interluding to a regear in under 20 minutes, the two premiums who earlier assaulted encountered Hotcock trying to return to the group and proceeded to chase him across difficult terrain. Hotcock made daring and evasive maneuvers which saved his life allowing him to log out. The company intercepted the premiums but were faced with an impasse of low ammunition and potion count. After a somewhat extended bow battle, Irishkaiser came up with a plan to win a decisive victory after realizing that extending the fight would only work in the premiums' favor. Plan is undisclosed but however Irishkaiser was killed but so were the two premiums and Benergy showed great valor. Using the two premiums' armor and food to help regear Irishkaiser, nothing of value was lost and the group won that decisive battle. Eventually the two premiums gave up. Hotcock once again had to go sometime later and the group was back to its original numbers, albeit without scout support as the rest had to go or had to be converted to iron fighters.
The trade run then continued smoothly until it reached Bell Farm where some… Stereotypical trash talking premium verbally assaulted us even though we didn’t know who that guy was… Man… Premiums, sometimes… You don’t do anything to them and then they start calling you names and shit… What is wrong with them?. They proceeded to attack customers. Now these customers proved to be a liability once again because they were foolhardy and wanted to keep fighting the respawning bastards head on instead of retreating and the premiums were using fake teamings and betrayals to get the better of them. One premium admitted to me who he was, saying his account was banned(typical premiums) trying to get sympathy from me.
Eventually as the situation was getting hot with premiums with chain and iron swords coming in from both sides and without Light Infantry support and Irishkaiser realizing they’ve practically sold everything out except 3 swords from Sahlgutmir, Irishkaiser declared the trade run over and a general logout was issued. As the group was about to log out, premiums started firing on them and the group returned fire. Most missed, but Sahlgutmir was hit at the moment of logout and was chased. Knowing Sahlgutmir could hold his ground until we could return - the group logged back in a minute later only to be given a report by Sahlgutmir that he encountered two more chain premiums, whom he promptly lost his life. With their numbers very few, ammunition depleted and worn, the situation looked grim and not wanting to further any more losses, Irishkaiser who at first planned a counter-attack, called for a logout instead. The story ended rather typical though… Sahlgutmir reported that it turned out the two guys who were chasing him were killed by the other two guys who came out of nowhere and NOT part of the same group. Basically, the premiums tore each other apart lol. The information came very late as in hindsight it could’ve provided the advantage the group needed to kill them had Irishkaiser kept his nerve. Morale was still very high at that point and the company would’ve been willing to make a final counter-charge had they realized their enemies were fighting each other.
Overall the trade run marked a tactical draw but a strategic victory since we’ve managed to get away with the profits but the performance was overall sluggish compared to more recent trade runs, it can still be seen to showcase the glorious fighting valor of the white man and his ability to stand up to a speed potting premium monkey. We were caught unprepared for this trade run, we won’t be the NEXT TIME… In which the premiums will probably go back to GrindZ to do something else and our preparations will be for nothing… Maybe.
The first fight started in classic Mountain Pass - everyone’s favorite map like de_dust with Team Banjo at the northern end and Team Abel at the Southern end. Team Banjo first started playing defensively, using the heights to their advantage and pinning Team Abel in the pass. Giving the order to withdraw to higher ground, the situation switched and Team Abel was the one pinning Team Banjo as they were the ones constantly descending. Eventually the fight moved at the exit of the Pass where Team Abel was descending under heavy fire to match their enemy. Both sides exchanged grenade fire and a sword fight resulted. With Cereal’s superior FPS being the decisive factor, Team Abel was able to defeat Team Banjo with only GunOverdose the casualty.
The teams switched sides and this time, noticing the weaknesses of how easy it is to break up Team Banjo and defeat them one by one(rather than the difficulty of facing them as a team which was shown in how dangerous it was), Team Abel charged head on hoping to catch Team Banjo trying to traverse difficult ground climbing up and succeeded in scattering them resulting in Guy’s death. Benergy showed cleverness in evasion and shadowing and was able to get away. Eventually Team Banjo regroup to the tower at the end of Mountain Pass where they were defeated by a maddening charge covered by flashbangs.
Map changed to fighting within Arbreton. The two teams started off at the East-West gates. Team Abel emboldened by their victories proceeded to push forward in oblique. They were shortly ambushed after and were under intense fire. Quickly changing to more reasonably defensible positions, Team Abel proceeded to regain the initiative against the static Banjo defenders. Proving to be very dangerous shots, Team Abel had to wait for Team Banjo to make a mistake and capitalize on it before making any moves. Eventually the mistake came when Guy762 fell and was swarmed and eaten alive- er… I mean… Killed.
With a crucial flank clear from Guy 7.62 bullets Team Abel began circling around probing the survivor’s defenses and trying to get on their level. Team Banjo, realizing the dangerous situation they were in started to contemplate moving but it looked like they were surrounded by sharks in the water. Sahlgutmir decided to take the initiative but Benergy failed to catch up and follow which could’ve killed GunOverdose if he did follow. Eventually Sahlgutmir and Ben died separately.
Team Banjo should learn to stick together next time. Team Abel fought hard but victory came at only two factors(Cereal’s FPS which was smoother than everyone else’s and Benergy was unused to maintaining unit cohesion).
Because of some Mexican Holiday, our Breeding Program is set back for months.
