[Sticky] The 900 days statement
Why the title 900 days? This has come about from a lot of talk between ourselves about doing a series of events based around a WW2 battle and not just one off events where it is really hard to be able to gain a site that truly envelopes what the event is about and gives the paying players the best experience possible. We feel this is a good compromise and allows us to focus on tailoring events to be as good as they can be.
Our series of event run around the Siege of Leningrad, also known as the Leningrad Blockade was a prolonged military operation undertaken by the German Army Group North against Leningrad on the Eastern Front theatre. The siege started on 8 September 1941, when the last land connection to the city was severed. Although the Soviets managed to open a narrow land corridor to the city on 18 January 1943, lifting of the siege took place on 27 January 1944, 872 days after it began. It was one of the longest and most destructive sieges in history and overwhelmingly the most costly in terms of casualties.
Our events are run on a non-profit-making basis. Payments will be taken from participating players to cover costs of site hire, equipment, set decoration, special effects/pyrotechnics and other necessities for putting on a good event.
The events team, compromises of, Bigkie and Lardy, running the Russian side of things, and Gadge and Dieselmonkey, on the German. What would we ask of you players is quite simple, just to switch on to what the events are trying to bring you. To be able to work within a squad based scenario not have to go off and get as much trigger time as possible as the lone style player, in essence to put yourself into the mindset of the WW2 soldier. Finally to enjoy yourselves and try to help all those around you have a good experience too.
