    With Yu Jing taking one part and NA2 the other no one is gonna be able to achieve the imperative of holding all three zones. Is there a point in fighting there beyond bragging rights anymore?

    It was ONLY ever about "bragging rights".

    This sounds like a JSA puppet account trying to convince people to stay out of Kurage station to me.

    Bah, the entire campaign is about "bragging rights". As were the previous two.

    Greysturm O.o? He's a very active Yu Jing player though...


    And lets face it, nobody was ever meant to take all 3 zones, the JSA exclusive zone made sure of that.

    I have to agree though, unlike some previous conflicts, this time the stakes seem very low for most factions other than JSA, and maybe Yu JIng.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the story somehow pulls out a way deeper meaning behind this all out of a magic hat, like they did with Uprising, but at that point what actually happened in the campaign will matter very little.

    In fiction or out of fiction?

    Out of fiction we're dealing with margin of victory. A 2-1 incomplete victory is better than a 1-2 incomplete loss, so both sides want to grab the ROC to deny that to the other. It's something likely to be counted in the final tally, like the ferocity of the fighting at various locations was in today's update, and determines who has more control over the area (Even though Total Control isn't an option for either side).

    In tabletop terms, you can no longer table your opponent but either of you might win on the points.

    In Fiction, one of Yu Jing's objectives in the campaign is to cripple or remove the JSA's control over the Kurage region. Currently Yu Jing controls the underwater Sensoring, allowing them to mount an amphibious assault and neutralize the JSA's naval blockade of the island by killing their sensor feeds, while the JSA itself holds their Technical Support wing. The area currently in conflict (The ROC) is basically the nerve center for the entire region. While holding it allows the JSA to basically maintain the status quo while they try to deal with the amphibious landing, Yu Jing taking the ROC would cripple JSA's ability to administer their own colony. While this is unlikely to give them Duban or Johnny-5, both independently administered, areas no longer being administered by the JSA are ripe to be reclaimed by Yu Jing or their Ariadnan allies under the guise of bringing governance back to unadministered colonial zones, allowing them to forward their primary campaign adjective if they take the zone. In addition it'll kill the JSA's ability to actually exploit the colony, costing the fledgling government dearly, something YJ wants if they aim to eventually reintegrate their secessionists.

    TL;DR: Absolutely.

    The three zone are three (or two for YuJing and haqqislam) playable areas in one place, EG redoubt, bhuts and tower.

    The rules for the Kurage Station location that forced people to play against JSA to play there meant their victory was basically guaranteed. If CB counts that as a scoring location for JSA it's just them giving them free points, and is reprehensible.

    ja ja ja...rotten from the start. Just because the mass of the people did not realize that it was THE SPECIFIC MISSION that you had to play against JSA...it was perfectly fine to report any mission against any opponent at that location. It's not an inherent problem...it was about information
