Operation Olive Challenge


This month's challenge is modeled after Operation Olive, one of the largest battles fought in Italy during World War II. We chose Lakeville to loosely model this effect, and combined it with Tier VI and encounter mode for sheer excitement.

Monthly challenges are open to all teams with a minimum of five players. After winning July’s Operation Husky Challenge, Team SIMP achieved a feat that has only occurred twice before by winning two consecutive challenges. This is a call to all teams to stop them in their tracks in case they go for an unprecedented three-in-a-row!
