Operation: ALAMO (Dec 14th-16th)
Event Description: The Reapers are taking advantage of our forces being spread thin and are making a push for Menae. Alliance Intelligence predicts that the Reapers are luring us into committing large-scale defenses to the moon that they will wipe out. Our counter-strategy is to insert small, stealthy units to conduct disruptive offensives and hold the firebase during their hopefully weakened attacks.
Team Goal: Earn the “Survived 5 Waves” medal on the Firebase Condor map at any difficulty. Extraction not required.
Reward: Commendation Pack
Ha, I guess not enough people are playing Firebase Condor lately! I personally find it one of the worst maps in the game for Platinum, if only because most people tend to camp at the top of the hill rather than the bottom area with the ammo box (right in front of the area where you first spawn into the game). The top of the hill = death! Anyway, I personally am going to do a Solo Bronze with the Kroguard to complete this goal because you can never rely on PUGs not to die for 5 waves even on Bronze (the Survived 5 Waves medal is if your entire team survives 5 waves, not just you individually).
How are you doing this challenge? Let me know in comments!
