Yeah just to add sunday was also my favourite of the two days, culminating in the obsolutely awesome last half hour in that dark bit of pine woodland, just the atmosphere generated by enemy sillhouettes darting between cover and getting shots off at what was thought to be backs, feet or whatever showing from behind the tree :happyclap: Dont get me wrong saturday was also good but think that with as many players as we had in field that day once it started to slide into the open day style then i think it would have been very hard even for someone as experienced as Josh to pull it round so I think the players will have had the experience of the sunday game and how good it was can help other more shall we say inexperienced players implement it into future events. Looking forward to 2014.

I have to say it is all too easy to be pulled into a competitive mind set and go hunting kills. The fact that my squad had a very specific role as mortar team on the Sunday helped focus our attention and kept us task specific, namely extracting the vehicles. We couldn't run off and leave the mortar and we needed organisation in order to function, all of which gave us (well,me) the experience I came into the hobby for :good: my revelation has led me to acknowledge that each player/group has a responsibility to themselves and others to conduct themselves in the right way. The one time I managed this, It all made sense :happyclap:

Thanks to Josh & everyone who was involved I had a fantastic weekend & I would agree with every thing that every one has said but I do know that sunday I used less ammo so it made it more of a tactical game which it was & I had more addrenilen (~•»> knows if thats spelt Wright) than I did on saturday
Thanks to mark for making us feel like one of the regulars in his company .
Cheers.
Pete. :happyswing:

There was a lot more shooting on Saturday than usual, but it was still a good day.
The Germans done extremely well they was dug in well and held us back all morning :good:

When all the 34th finally got our heads together we finally broke through :D

Big thanks to josh and all that helped organise it all :good:

after a late start (come on guys there is no reason not to be ready on time) it was a nice paced, starting with the Germans dug in the woods and the convoy moving very slowly , and we made hard and slow progress , but then my garand died and had to nip back to the car and bring out the back up grease gun and when i got back it seemed to have all changed more very 40 v 40 fairly head on ish , still good fun but was the point it went a bit more standard game, in the first part with garand hardly used any ammo , but as we fought a bit more open twice i had to go back to regen as was out of my 300 rounds.

But as there seemed to be a fair amount of new players i think it went quite well, and i would prefer to lose a little bit of the game to engage and grab new players to the sport :) , but still it was a good day and some good battles , loved the pine tree area was really hard to pick people out so was good fun, was nice to see areas we did not use at Gothic.

my only bugbear with the day is the late start, would have been nice to have that extra hour.

But as always many thanks for josh for running the event, roll on the next one :)

the guy who took photos all day where will he be hosting them ?

Still not recovered in a lot of pain
Right ill start of saying sorry for coming late miss calculated the time
The day started off like an airsoft day but half way through the day it got better
My unit worked great together if we split up we waited until everyone regrouped did a lot of counter attacks trying to push the germans back and I must say it worked rather well, also diversion tactics worked too very proud of my unit
Sunday was nicely paced as 2 members of my unit decided to get fecking pissed ( court martial) I say lol
Towards the end of the day I pass command over to Dean as my leg decided to piss me off once again

Thanks to Josh for organising this and the marshalls
And thanks to members of dog company for keeping me warm at the farm

That was entirely the evil German commander's fault Sarge, with his evil-y delicious white Russians.
