• FC:Rev3 Pre-Battle Briefing (01/22/12) #02

    I hope you've all been preparing for this week. Will Imperial troops halt the BLUE advance and begin their own offensive, or will the Brotherhood forces manage to secure a dominate control over the border territories? It is for you to decide!

    Check out the "(Live) Battle Results and Status Updates" section for the announcement of the official FC livestream of the event! (Hosted by Metkil!)

    Please pay attention to the new gametype Occupation, which is explained in the Gametype Details section. You may find it useful at throwing your opponents off their game, since few have had a chance to practice with the gametype very much.
