[Sticky] Army Group South - what we're about and what we expect.
Army Group South (AGS) are a small group of people who met and became friends at WWII airsoft events. Every event we run is entirely non-profitable (in fact, we sometimes don't even cover our own personal costs).
We endeavour to run events which are immersive, which put you in the position of an ordinary WWII soldier - not a blatfest, not sneaking around on your own, doing your own thing. Soldiers are expected to wear standard uniforms and helmets, and to follow their orders without question. We use stringent ammo limits, ammo resupply and medic rules, to enhance the event experience.
What we expect from you: buy into the immersive experience, try to act like a soldier of that period, or a conscript - since many were. Obey your orders, and work in your designated squad.
What we will not tolerate:
1. Not obeying orders
2. Going off on your own
3. Moaning / whinging
4. Hit-calling / cheat-calling
5. Gamesmanship - i.e. cheating / trying to circumvent the rules to your advantage
If you're likely to do any of the above - DO NOT BOOK ON OUR EVENTS.

â€œI wanted to come to the Volga at a specific location at a specific city. By chance it carries the name of Stalin himself. So donâ€™t think I marched there for this reason â€“ it could carry another name â€“ but because there is a very important goal... this goal I wanted to take â€“ and you know â€“ we are very modest, we have it already."
Adolf Hitler, November 1942
"Comrades, Red Army men, commanders and political workers, men and women guerrillas! It is on your perseverance, staunchness, fighting skill and readiness to discharge your duty to the country that the defeat of the German-fascist army and the liberation of the Soviet land from the Hitlerite invaders depend! We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."
Joseph Stalin, November 1942
