First and foremost OPS would like to thank the CT Airsoft Community for all of it’s’ support in the past and at this weekend. When we were given the opportunity to continue this tradition it seemed like a daunting task. We worked very hard for 3 weeks on storyline and missions. We are working on a Missile System that didn’t quite get finished to our standards and was not used. It will be up and running as soon as we can.
As for the game, US was able to complete all of it’s’ missions and sub-missions, to win the game. Although the China team captured more POW’s and had more kills. All of the missions were based on classic games we normally play such as search and transport; downed pilot; extraction; attack and defend; and attack and secure. Props that were used ;canons, rockets (prop and model), orange smoke (for extraction signal), laptops, satellite dishes, “Anthrax”, and “Small Pox”, along with some prop bombs that literally exploded!!!
Special thanks to Bogey (USA CO) and Voodoo/Goose (China’s CO). Also, at the end of the game we “awarded” some players; Voodoo for China MVP, and Jackson for USA MVP. Both players displayed honor and integrity, along with really helping their respective teams. Snake; a Direwolf Recruit, earned the KIA Award for “Rocking the Red Rag” the most in the game. Thanks Snake for being a good sport and following the wounded rules.
The raffle started with about 6 items, but quickly turned into a fire sale. As people began buying more tickets, OPS rolled up its’ sleeves and added many more things!!! Total value of items raffled was well over $400. Congratulations o all those that won.
A special thanks to Strategy Plus for a great field, Chris O’Grady, Ryan, Corey, Noah(Caboose), Dan(Kracka), Kevin(UCONN), Andrew(Slick), Kenny(Rekendo), and Juicebox; whom all provided excellent reffing during the game. Karkus was a wonderful downed Pilot, thanks for bring the “Beast”!!
Okay, here is our take on the good, the bad, and the Ugly:Good:
Teamwork amongst new and veteran players
CommunicationLAUGHING and HAVING FUN
Blind Firing- we only saw it once, GREAT JOB!!
Hit Calling—NOT AN ISSUE AT ALLThe Bad:
Flashlights—you need them for night time...period
Refs getting hit—OPS fault, we will get reflective/glowing vests for future night games
People interrupting during briefing- Warlock does not like saying,”Shut up”. But he had to say it a few times to the same person. The briefing is to help players know what is happening, please do not talking during briefing.
Leaving the field for extended periods of time- takes away from the game and your team. Please bring your extra stuff to base camp, that’s why we have them.
Uniforms—when given a set of colors to choose from please follow them. OPS does not like using tape, players spend a lot of money on gear and that’s why we set teams based on pattern/color.The Ugly:
Auto w/in 100 ft of structures/inside perimeter- Warlock is very sore with multiple bruises. Please watch your semi/auto usage. Also, 10 ft. Safety Kills please
Players are not allowed to use hot burning grenades at SP, cold burning. We have an idea of who used it. If we catch anyone using them at our games where they are banned you will be banned. Period
Again, thank you to everyone and we’ll see you in the field again soon!!
