The Wolf Truce – The wolves are more hungry then ever
From today until March the 29th the wolves are on the prowl, searching for prey on the battlefield. Beware during the regular Maneuver battles, as there is a chance that the wolves will appear, causing all kinds of havoc on the frontlines. When this happens, the players can call upon a temporary truce in order to frantically fend off these hungry beasts together. If the truce is upheld, all surviving players can earn a special in-game medal! The truce however is not enforced by the game which means that a careless shot or a gung-ho soldier that sees an opportunity for glory can break it, with all the chaotic consequences!
This event is inspired upon historical texts that detail the dangers wolves posed on the long Eastern Front. In that time Russia had a huge population of wolves, which were displaced by the World War, causing all kinds of dangers for the soldiers and civilians. In this truce the wolves are more hungry than ever killing you in 2 bites! Furthermore the communication around the truce in-game as well as the grace period have been made more clear.
