What Is the D-Day: Global Campaign

D-Day: Global Campaign (FFS03)

On the 28th we are launching a massive global campaign with our partners over at OnTableTop. During this campaign you and your friends will march through Normandy reliving the key moments that define the Overlord Campaign. Defend the beaches of Normandy or try to trap the German retreating forces in a pocket and fight over Paris and the liberation of France!

During the Campaign you will fight along three lanes that highlight key moments of Operation Overlord. Each week these will move forward to the next location and new suggested weekly missions. How well you do in each of these areas will help determine who will win the overall campaign as well as give you some awesome in-game bonuses in that lane for the following week.

Getting Involved
The D-Day: Global Campaign is a great way to get involved in the
Flames Of War community in your area, and as the first ever Flames Of War Global Campaign, is sure to be a massive event. Our previous two Team Yankee saw huge enthusiasm from the wargaming community with battles fought all over the world by clubs and stores everywhere. 

Not only will Flames Of War Late War forces be tasked with fighting this epic campaign, but this D-Day campaign will be our first ever multi-system campaign, with TANKS players being able to join the fight and contribute to the outcomes of each battle and the Campaign on the whole.

How The Campaign Works
Your persistent campaign account will rank up and earn achievements based on how well you perform in battle. Results are recorded on the Campaign site in order to determine which side will claim victory in each sector. As the Campaign progresses along each of the lanes the winners in each sector will be tallied up to finally determine which side will be victorious at the Campaign’s conclusion. 

You will be able to earn more points for their side by sharing battle reports with photographs and detailed accounts of the games they play. These reports can be viewed by other participants in the campaign and their quality voted on by those other participants, which will reward players who write more detailed reports not only with more XP towards their profile and more points towards their side’s efforts in the Campaign for Normandy, but also with personal achievements for their efforts.

Each sector in each lane will have its own recommended mission designed to reflect the historic battles that took place in each of those locations. TANKS players will also have their own recommended mission each week. If you don’t feel like running the recommended mission or you’ve already played it and want to play a different mission you can go ahead and play any mission you like and when you report the results of your battle the results will still feed directly into determining the sector’s victors.

There are plenty of ways to get involved with the Global Campaign. Your local store or club can pick up a copy of the D-Day Global Campaign pack here and have a focal point for your Campaign progress with weekly games with your regular gaming group. Another way of getting involved is simply to jump online and sign up to join the Campaign with your own profile and then when you do play battles as it suits you you can add those to the Campaign site- just be sure to encourage your opponent(s) to create their own profile for the Campaign so you can link your reports. Finally, if you’re not able to take part over the entirety of the Campaign or if you want to fight for your side in a competitive environment, you can check out the selection of tournaments that are part of the Campaign and enter your tournament results into the campaign.
