The Rangers took part in the Crusade '08. The Crusade began on October 20th in Rhodenbank. We rolled through the SW corner of Rhodenbank and cleared it in one day. We moved on with the Crusade and the next target was Dulston. We went into Dulston on the 21st of October and concentrated on the NW corner of the suburb. We spend six days there fighting against the zeds. We were instrumental in clearing the NW corner of Dulston. On the 27th of October we moved on to Pescodside. Once again we targeted the NW corner of the suburb. We were able to clear it in only one day. On the 28th of October we moved on to Dunningwood. And in one day, we cleared the NW corner of Dunningwood. On the 29th of October, we moved to Pitneybank with the Crusade. And in one day, we cleared the NW corner of Pitneybank. We did some fighting in the SW of Piytneybank, but it was a give and take affair. Every time we gained some ground, the zeds launched a counter offensive and we were pushed back. We headed to Pimbank with the Crusade and retook Tynte Mall. We launched an attack on November 3rd and retook Tynte mall on November 4th. On the 5th of November, the Crusade headed to Ridleybank and began the assault on the heart of the RRF. We did quite a bit of damage in the SE corner of Ridleybank before the unavoidable came. The zeds did not take well to the invasion of their territory and answered back. On the 7th of November, the Crusade came to an end and we headed home. A successful campaign to the red zones had come to the end. But, we gained valuable experience and are looking forward to our next mission.

The Blackhawk Nation is relocating to Shackleville. It is time for a change and time to take the fight to the zeds. The time for waiting for the zeds is over. Now, it is time for us to take the fight to them. It is time for a new movement and the Blackhawk Nation will lead the way.

Blackhawk Nation liberates the center of Shackleville establishing its new base of operations. It didn't take long to clear the path and make our presence known.

"The Liberation of Shackleville" has been completed. On December 24th we decided to make it a priority to liberate the masses in Shackleville. We went to work and took the fight to the zeds. Buildings that were dark started to get repaired and the tide of the battle started to turn. Survivors began moving back in and the lights started coming on. On January 3rd the suburb went green and "the Liberation of Shackleville" was complete.

"The Kempsterbank cleanup" has been completed. On January 5th, the Blackhawk Nation went south to the suburb of Kempsterbank. Our goal was to turn the suburb green and retake all the resource buildings. We took Jilliard and Dobbs first. Then the fire stations were brought back on line. Then we went to work on the hospitals. St Matheos, St George, Neot, Titus, and Julie were all taken back and repaired quite easily. St Ferreol's was another story though. St Ferreol's is the home of St. Ferreol's Hospital Noise Abatement Society and they were not going to go down without a fight. It was a back and forth affair with the survivors unable to put the finishing touches on the zeds fast enough. Just when you thought it was about to be retaken, the zeds would stand up and the fight would start all over again. Things went on like this for days. Then on January 16th, an assault was launched and the zed numbers steadily decreased as they were shot down and thrown on the street one by one until finally the building was cleared. St Ferreol's was then repaired (40 AP's) and barricaded. And the Blackhawk Nation went home after a job well done.

The Blackhawk Nation is officially closing down. It was a good run. But in the end, there was too much drama from outside sources. And the enjoyment of the game has gone. Good luck to everyone.
