Big thanks to the organizers, best game I've had in ages, great gameplay by all involved, very atmospheric, lots of great bloodcurdling screams . Only odd thing, we set up the phone but never used it, not a criticism, just one for the next game. Once again thanks for organizing a great game. Look forward to any pictures if anyone got some.

Agreed! Best game I've had for ages!

Kudos to all of the organisers and players for making things run so smoothly!

Can't not mention the multiple C96 kills and the shovel fight with the soviet soldier :P.

My favourite thing I heard all day was the legend that was Martin ,the comrade with only a spade and a grenade ! Stuck fear into the German forces .

What a day! Great to see old and new faces. I think this is the 4th time I've played at this site, but it's so easy to get lost and disorientated. The effects and props really made it immersive, and there were some really tense times in those dark places. I have to commend the sneaky Russians, who were very stealthy. Hobnailed jackboots and clanky German kit made it very difficult to sneak around quietly. I never realised how noisy it is to step on a BB!

Really good gameplay by everyone. My friend Scott and my son Louis thoroughly enjoyed the day. Thanks to Porta, Stumpy, Matty and Granger for gear lending. :good:

I completely agree and this was also my first WW2 event. I will certainly be back for more. I loved the very team based gameplay. It makes for a far more immersive experience.

Well done to all the organisers for a well thought out day. Well done to all my Kamaraden Grenadiers and well done to Ivan for some amazing Russland war charges and some of the best and most honest gameplay I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.

A 700 mile round trip but totally worth it.

Thanks to all the players to for having a great attitude and making the game so much fun and so atmospheric.

Brilliant day and thanks again

Great day. Thanks to jimbo, gordon, matt and Gav for all the hard work and everyone for great game pkay.

First time in the tunnels and loved it.
Special moments:
- being shot at with traser BB in the pitch dark tunnel seeing them searching their targets and bouncing off cover was really cool (thanks Porta)
- sneaking through a dark tunnel with bayonett and pistol in hand. Suddendly someone taping my shoulder. Could not see a thing. He did no say a thing and walked on. Must have been a German. Death was around every corner and you could not even see it

What a great day thanks for everyone who attended Old and New especially Porta and Matt who travelled from afar, glad it was worth it. It never ceases to amaze me the effort put into kit even from new players who were experiencing WW2 for the first time thanks to people who filled their kit gaps with Lend Lease.

We wanted to put on an atmospheric game in the sewers of Stalingrad so we tried some things which I hoped worked well. The site leant itself to the Sewers without any set dressing so job done really from the start. For people who did not attend we had background sewer sounds being played out of speakers which I took from the Stalingrad Movie Sewer scenes. This constantly gave you a feeling that someone was around every corner waiting for you in the dark hearing voices and footsteps echoing.

We also made a Field hospital which was fought over many times, well done Ruskies for sneaking in there and getting the medical crate away, in here we had a number of dummies dressed as Soldat with bloody wounds including some grisly off cuts playing in here we had the screaming and shouting sounds again from the Stalingrad Movie of the Field Hospital scene. Again walking in here in the low lighting put the willies up you thinking at any moment one of them would jump up.

LARP E Tools. These seemed to be a big hit excuse the pun and there were some great smiling faces at the German HQ after missions when someone came in proudly boasting they had got 2 or 3 kills from them.
All in all a fantastic day from my side of things.-- attachment is not available ---- attachment is not available ---- attachment is not available ---- attachment is not available --

Best. Airsoft. Game. Ever.

What an amazing day! Those tunnels were a joy to fight through. The atmosphere was great, you knew the Germans could be round any corner so had to be on guard at all times. Several times I was killed only to find that there were german a few feet away from me. A few highlights for me were watching Martin stalk the tunnels with only a spade, Martin and I sneaking into the hospital and stealing medical supplies while the Germans were blissfully unaware and also defending the gramophone where a German ran onto my bayonet! Managed to get quite a few rifle kills that day which I'm proud of (though I'm sure a lot of them were down to luck)

Thank you to the organisers for my best day of airsoft yet. Thanks to my comrades in section 1.

Funny thing about yesterday was that I was up at quarter to 5, the baby kept me up most of the night too but I found being dirt tired added to the sense of atmosphere in the game. Puts me in mind of the poor souls who had to fight in such condition for real.

Regards,

Ralph

I think "Atmospheric " is the word that most accurately sum's this one up , it was for us organizers as well and that's quite rare ,when your responsible for creating a game its easy to loose the immersive feeling that you are trying to achieve for the players ,with the tunnels themselves being such an atmospheric environment it kept even us in the moment . Even the drifting smoke from pyro added to the near zero vision at times ,agonizing over the use of torches and then finding that even with a torch on you were blinded by smoke ! I'm so pleased that I saw no modern torches at all ,the dim yellow beam of old fashion torches really added to the feeling so an enormous thank you to everybody for really getting the spirit of the game even those who it was their first taste of WW2 airsoft ,a single player with a high power modern tactitorch could have shattered to feeling for everybody so well done all .

That was really good event, well done to the organisers for setting it up, and all the players who took part with such enthusiasm. Well worth the trip from Up North.

Interesting site, like a more claustrophibic version of Drakelowe, and the sound effects and generally wierd sound distortions made it very creepy and atmospheric. It all seemed to make some people very trigger happy, and the number of friendly fire incidents were astonishing.

Hats off to Commisar Matt for leading the defenders of the Motherland to inevitable victory, and to the efforts of Comrade Commander Lutz and the proletarian heroes of oneski section.

Too many highlights to mention them all, but a couple which spring to mind were

1. Watching two German sections light each other up while we hid in the shadows, then finishing off the survivors. It was really very funny, and I'm not sure they even realised that was what had happened.

2. Trying a fake 'Hurrah' to frighten the Germans and suddenly finding we were surrounded by other Russians we'd not seen who thought it was an actual charge. So we al went for it.

3. Sneaking around with just a shovel. Hobnail jackboots can be very quiet if you walk on tip toe. The absolute highlight was sneaking into the hospital, while a bunch of Germans chatted away completely oblivious, and nicking the medical supplies from right behind their backs.

I did take a few photos, I'll post up any decent ones in a bit.

Cheers

A huge thank you to all the organisers and everyone! :)

Had a great time being blown up! Not many German soldiers could say that!

One of the best and most intense games I have ever played. Never have I been so confused and scared at the same time.

Thanks as well for keeping me involved in the game as well, means a lot to me.

Just cannot wait to do this again!
