No, thank you for putting on such an awesome game! Quite possibly one of the best games I've ever been too. The site is brilliant, the game play excellent and the missions were spot on. I liked the constant flow of having something to go and do, and resisting the temptation to attack the nearby Germans. I particularly liked the little extras in the boxes, any game where you get free sweets is a winner in my book!

Special thanks to Martin for leading the British, he did a great job!

To mirror what Steve has said today was really one of the best days airsofting I've had! All your missions were well thought out and worked really well with the site. Again thank you Martin who had leadership thrust upon him and did a damn fine job keeping the squad working well together and focused on the objective and not in long drawn out fire fights, smash and grab was the name of the game today.

Also a big thanks to the Jerries, you all played really well, no prpblem with hit taking at all. Really enjoyed fighting with my comrades, smashon bunch: of lads!

Yes big thank you to the Fireball team for putting on another very enjoyable game. I for one am very greatfull that there are regular games being put on for those in the Midlands/Oop North.

The mission cards worked well again, plenty of variety in style and good use of props within the missions, the Bazooka was great fun :good:

I think everyone kept to their squads and followed orders much better this time out, it really adds to the enjoyment of the game, well done everyone.

As has already been said sportsmanship/hit taking was spot on, another thing that adds to everyones enjoyment.

Great to see familiar faces again but also great to meet Lutz and a new Stoke posse in the SS lads :good:

Only down side the Gebirgsjägers could find no mountains to climb :wink:

Look forward to your next outing.-- attachment is not available --

I can only join in. It was a great game and worth while the trip from London.
Hit taking was fabulous especillay by the Brits. It made my day taking out 4-5 with a grenade while attacking the rocket site. I hope i died as well as you guys did :D
Great finally meeting some of the people behind the forum discussions. Tim thanks for running a proper squad today....that is the kinda game i like. Hope to see you all soon again.

Big thanks to everyone, especially Richard and the K.O.Y.L.I lad who loaned me the Grease Gun and spare mag when my Garand failed the chrono. I was gutted at first; thought I'd traveled all the way for nothing, but they went above and beyond to help me out. Can't thank you enough for that, really. Suffice to say if any of you lads need digs down south for a game, you're more than welcome at mine.

In all, I had a good day. Learned a lot about kit for future events, (I'm getting a PPS Kar 98 as soon as I can, not to mention getting some proper boots and webbing,) met some nice people, had a laugh.

I'd definitely come back. It's a long way from South London, but it was worth it. :good:

ok had a bit of sleep :) few other things i wanted to say , first off thanks to the brits you guys looked and operated great as a squad, i not a massive brit kit fan but i have to say seeing you guys as a unit looked very cool :) , and with that the new stoke ss posse i know this was your first ww2 airsoft game and you guys were great and looked great had some nice compliments about you guys :) , some of you Germans carry so much kit i would not last 30 min with my back loool

Many thanks to Tim for stepping up when your leader was recalled back to Germany , and even though you had a few deserters you guys fought well and so many great death screams yesterday it was great ,

and thanks also for Matt for leading a German zug even though he fairly new to airsoft and telling me the most amusing story, that when on the intel mission the person with the camera left it at HQ so he made him draw the picture :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

And it has been said above the squad play was great on both sides and squads seemed to stick together really well, and when not needed to fight they seemed to withdraw well and did not just fight for the sake of it.

Have seen some of the photos already and they look great so we will sort them out and i will do a video up of them :) , many thanks to both photographers , who both came at short notice :)

right off to find some more nurofen for my back lol

id like to say a massive thanks to chris and the fireball lads for a brilliant event. my 1st ww2 game after 7 years of skirmishing and i dont think any open days have or ever will be able to ever hold a candle to it. everyone was very welcoming and the atmosphere was buzzing.

A massive thanks as well to Martin for being a fantastic CO for us brits, a hard fought morning and a true british comedy brewing up in the afternoon with a quality bunch of lads.

allenby - it was no problem at all with the grease gun mag, happy to have been able to help :D

il be booking in for Foy come payday & will have to set about putting a US loadout together to warrant buying a M1 Garand after seeing so many of them performing so well yesterday.
Toby the Grease Haired camera man will be signing up on here in short order, if not il let you know when he has the photo's posted up.

many thanks again & hopefuly see you all at Foy :happydance: :happyclap: :happyswing:

Thanks for a great day out, the weather gods were kind, the missions worked very well and as far as I could tell everyone stuck with their sections which made for a great WW2 feel. Particularly big thanks to Paz, whose local knowledge of the site was very helpful in the very dense parts, and to 2 section in general as we all managed to stick together and work as a group to overcome the obstacles in our path. There was only that one attack which went spectacularly wrong, and apart from that we gave Jerry a good biffing.

I was pleased to be able to use the boltie all day and didn't feel particularly outshot by the Germans, and even managed to land a few decent shots, which is alway so much more satisfying with a springer. It is possible I might have also bayonetted a couple of wounded Germans, well, they were SS... The mission to make cups tea around various sites was very funny, although we perhaps spent a big longer on it that we shoudl have done. I was impressed with the way which grousp focussed on their missions, so we had a number of limited contacts, bypassing actions, breakoff under fire etc stuff going on.

Good to see such a good turnout and looking forward to the next one (although sadly I won't be able to manage the April game).

Cheers

It was a great day with a big turnout, as far as I understand, being only my 2nd WW2 event. The mission based gameplay was very good as it kept up a constant flow of things to do and felt very natural as there was always the chance to stumble across a completely unrelated battle. I had a great time on the Brit squad, so thanks to Martin and others who kept us all together and on the right path to objectives, and of course everyone at Fireball for hosting such a fun day!

I'd just like to say how much I enjoyed this game. A really thoroughly fun mix of objectives and fire-fights that have left me incredibly sore all over... but oh so worth it!

Everyone was really friendly, and very sporting, and what a great bunch of lads you were to play with on the British squad!

Thanks to Fireball for putting this game on, not least because it was far enough north for me to travel down to (without needing an overnight stay). :happyclap:

On behalf of german zug 2 ( ss zug) i would like to thank everyone involved for an amazing day. the Fireball guys and site were fantastic. we had a blast. it was our first ww2 event and we loved it. what a cracking bunch of guys. It says something about the quality of a game when both sides have a bit of a chin wag and laugh about the battle that they were just involved in. this happened with both the Brits and Americans that we fought with. the mission thing was new to us, we loved it . can't wait for the next one . well done and thanks to everyone who took part and made it a fantastic day. The only downside for us that we had one of those days when guns just decide to play up.

Has to be the best game i've been to yet, will take some topping. Great respect for the Germans whose death scenes could give Hollywood some pointers!
Will start with apologies to the two Brits who i nailed in the bushes, Can't describe how the smug feeling i had when i thought i'd wasted a couple of Krauts evaporated when i heard the cry "Stretcher bearer!" into complete horror! It was typically American friendly fire but in my defence i did come and patch you up...
I hope other sites see the extra benefits that mission cards bring to the game, gives it the real fog of war feeling to the affair. Now i'm immersed in the Second world war i can't even see myself buying anything resembling a modern weapon!
Thanks to all those who put the effort into making it such a great day.

Mission cards definitely the way forward, kudos to chris, Martin and the guys for a fantastic day. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, game play, hit taking and comadrie from all was second to none.
Hats off to the gerries, dying in true style...

Can't think of anything really to add to the posts above. It was a great day and puts all open days in the shade IMHO. Can't wait for the next one!
