Just realised I have played inside and out of Pavlov's house in Call of Duty and Red Orchestra. Therefore I know the layout like the back of my hand so this event should be a piece of piss. :?

Let's hope Porta reconfigures the floor plans for the Manchester site, some re-building might be in order... :whistle: :lol:

The outside of the site in no way relects the internal layout.

Its VERY old at the front 1890`s era, and the back is about 1930`s
plus its totally trashed inside, like its been through a war.

its very easy to get lost in the smaller corridors and rooms, plus the larger rooms will all be bunkered and walled and with tunnels as well, by the time the game comes :D

This one does sound very interesting, rifle heavy game backed up by the odd MG and smg with hop off. Not normally a fan of CQB but with rifles and limited ammo looks good. My only concern is my Tanaka, even with 134/144 gas on a hot day can be well over 350 fps, not good for shooting someone at short range :?

April wont be hot inside that Building, ITS MANCHESTER FFS its cold and damp, and as its old stone and stock brick, it wont warm up very quick.

just keep tanaka mags in pouches not pockets (opposite of winter :wink: )


you watch, we will have a bloody heatwave now :slap:

'I' ? WTF is all this 'I' malarkey? I'm fairly sure that the correct wordage should be 'we' :whistle:

Once the build (the word seems a little understated really) has been done this site should be awesome. I'd use it as is if the H&S do-gooders didn't exist, but then again, i'm stupid :shock:

I would also use the site as is, but as you almost fell down the open lift shaft when "walking round" its best we make safe eh?
