It's been a month since OTA got the Shadow Raids and since I don't play that much on the server no more im just curious

Are they usefull ? Like actually ?
Have Combine mains felt the sudden shift of power that this addition brought (OTA dealing with a problem w/o a JW ?)
How many times have you seen it happen, or was it like a week and then they stopped approving any
Still to this day the only time I've seen it happen was the 2 made by OSAS RP Group and nothing else rly

Well, they can be useful, sadly i never saw any, but i know you need to "sacrifice" 2 or 3 JW reasons to make a shadow raid, you need many OTAs and almost 1 admin as OTA, and nobody except the OTA squad preparing it should know

I got one called once, took 15 minutes to set up, completely fucking useless. Not a clue why it takes a quarter of an hour of preperation, apparently something about steam id's? idk. OTA need more reasons to mobilize.

I mean, it's cool that it's added, but it sure as hell didn't seem as limited as when only OSAS could do it
It's like teargas: good thing that could be used for more than crowd control, but rules didnt allow CP's to

i've heard from xdank that admins need to fill a giant log with admin shit before doing a SR or something, also they need to be a complete surprise
that's retarded tbh, log should be as simple as who authorized it and what time it was conducted

but in all honesty, if we would actually do a Shadow Raid, it's gonna be a real surprise to the rebels
with how little it actually happens, so still better than JW

Too much restrictions to do jack shit. Besides, once you see 6 OTA on the tab menu along with a mod, you know its time to GTFO.

I have witnessed more than one shadow raid, i can agree that most of the time they achieve nothing other than wasting the current JW reasons, but the few times where i witnessed them succeed, they made a huge impact on the rebels due to how unexpected they were.
All in all, i still agree that they're useless most of the time.
