    I am missing an M249 Drum Mag, last seen by the UFS respawn barrel. It is marked with black duct tape.

    Well you keep asking for milsim. You should know that a lot of days can go by with no shots fired. So in theory you were still simulating. You wre told to gaurd the building.
    As for admin issues, I never had any and I had tons of times were I needed admin help.
    Command wise: I was CoST and was handed objectives that made sense and were important. One of which was take one guy with me and flank around and assault the mash, which would have worked had 3 squads not decided to have a pow wow there instead of spawning and moving on, is what it is.
     
    As for staff I have never had issues. Maybe I'm special, I don't know. My experiences have been great. Then again when I have an issue, I take it to the staff. If am admin can't help, I find a combat controller. If that doesn't work I find either JP, BO, or frosty. It gets fixed. #proactive
     
    Lastly, everyone views the event differently. I had a blast. I have concerns of course but nothing to stir me away. As for fire fights, you can mostly blame your fellow players for not moving to fight. I constantly was on the move and I'm not skinny. You have to find a way to fight. Sure u had to watch a building. Can't get command on radio, send a runner to locate. Get updated objective. Shit happens. Make the fight happen. I'm not known for standing in a building, people know me because I kick doors into people and pew pew pew. I get killed I do it all over again.
     
    But hey, it's your money to spend. We can't make you spend it on AMS. I have been to 5 events hosted by AMS and have always come away from it knowing I left 150% of myself on that AO and had a blast. Regardless of kills. I had plenty but I had more fun knowing I was inspiring people to fight, obviously I didn't motivate you, oh well. I would say id see you at black sheep Shelby but I'll prolly be too busy getting ready for ESR3, BH4, and the new AO in NM with 300+ buildings that won't be full of players who don't make life fun. I run gas, I hardly go through a mag. So not shooting a lot means nothing, just saying.
     
    If your still even reading at this point, we appreciate your attendance and y'all losing yourself to be a target for the opposing force. End of the day it's just a game of dress up:)

    Thibideaux reacted to Alex AMS in Hydration rule?   
    When I personally push for thing to be applied to events, the first thing I consider is management.  Can it manage itself, or does it require someone to keep track of it.  I feel that players should be able to manage their own hydration, but I also agree that there are plenty of players that don't heed the advice from experience that they should.  Some of these suggestions have....kind of been used.
     
    Broken Home is a great example.
     
    We had cases of bottled water that we moved to the areas around mobile spawn points.  People complained that this water wasn't cold, and it created a great deal of trash.  We had water in Buffalo's.  We also ran missions to the Buffalo's and had factions fill up their 5-gallon Jerry can's that they could then distribute however they wanted to players in the field.
     
    The thing is, these games are player driven.  We handle the missions and the logistics, but at the end of the day it's up to the player, and player leadership to keep the fight up in order to be victorious.  This includes keeping your troops supplied with water and rotating them throughout the fight when it's REALLY hot outside.  You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.

    Thibideaux reacted to Sisu in Hydration rule?   
    I've always liked the "You must have hydration on your person" rule.

    You're carrying your rifle, mags, and most of the time a crap ton of gear you probably don't need. So having a camelbak or canteen or someone on your person shouldn't be a big deal.
    You can't FORCE someone to drink, but I do think it is about teamwork. We should all be looking out for each other anyway. In my opinion, that's what makes us a community.

    I know that based on what I'm hearing about the weather this weekend, I would HIGHLY encourage everyone to police each other on this. Whether you're CO, XO, squad leader, whatever... Make sure your teams have water (even if it's a water bottle or two) and make sure they're drinking. No fun when you miss half the OP cause your body quits on you.

    Thibideaux reacted in Hydration rule?   
    It's everyone's own responsibility to keep hydrated. If you go down due to heat and lack of water, that's on you. I'd consider water to be the most useful weight on your kit. Period.
     
    But as a SQL, I like to give my guys occasional reminders as we go since I know people can get distracted depending on the situation. Keep water on you. As much as you'll need. And keep more in a bag at your FOB. 
     
    This isn't a rule because AMS and admins expect us to have our big boy pants on and to take care of ourselves. Of all things, dropping out of the game due to poor hydration is lame, and of poor responsibility to yourself and your team.

    Thibideaux reacted to Alex AMS in Medic Rule Change   
    There has been some discussion on the forums regarding the medic rules which led to AMS sitting down and having a discussion of our own.  In regards to not using medics in structures.  Originally the intent of the rule was to give attacking forces a more level ground when attacking structures.  You ended up with 12 guys behind cover hosing attackers running across open ground.  With the addition of semi auto only this isn't viewed as much of a factor any more.  In addition to this, we try to keep everything as simple as it can be so we are amending the medic rules to allow the use of medics inside buildings just as they are used outside of buildings.  The same medic rules will apply to the entire AO.
     The rule stating that the length of the bandage will be 4ft long will stand.  It's impossible to replicate real battlefield injuries that require time for a medic to assess and treat at airsoft games.  The longer bandage is supposed to take a little longer to wrap around the extremity to simulate the medic having to take time to work on a casualty, which still will not be that long. 
     
    The AMS Ruleset has been amended to reflect this change.

    I must have overlooked this question before.  4ft un-stretched.  You don't have to stretch them out and make them tight, they just have to wrap around.  I know it gets uncomfortable if it's too tight.

    ATTENTION
     
    Player and Staff MEDICAL CARDS became an AMS SOP at OBH3 and it was a boon to our EMT staff (Thank Rick!)
     
    All players ARE REQUIRED to have their Medical Card filled out and ON THEIR PERSON (in their IFAK or Sleeve POCKET) while on the active AO. 
     
    PLAYER MEDICAL CARDS are a REQUIREMENT at all American Milsim events.
     
    The following PDF template may be printed and filled out prior to an AMS event, or may be filled out during the event check-in process.
     
    I suggest players to print, fill out and laminate their own Medical Cards for hassle free use at future AMS events.

    Thibideaux reacted to Mule in HK M27 IAR   
    For future consideration: I would suggest a ssw compliment of rounds. I would also allow full auto. My caviot would be no flash-mags, hi-caps or drum mags. Basically this would limit the weapon to the role it is being used in the USMC. I understand and support the idea of the m27 being classified as a rifle mans weapon. However the challenge is to adapt its real world application to the milsim event. It's not an easy task but I have every confidence that the situation will be resolved in the future. END OF RANT!

    Thibideaux reacted to Cyper in M27/IAR a Support Weapon?   
    MILSIMER’s,
     
    I’m not here to beat a dead horse, but I would merely like to throw in my two cents and state that airsoft has evolved in to a new era of game. We’ve gone from being “SPEED BALLER’S†to Hard Core “MILSIM Operatorsâ€. We’ve transitioned from playing in paintball fields to fully constructed makeshift cities and highly realistic, real world scenario fields. We’ve introduced APC’s, ATV’s, PMC designed vehicles and have even gone all out HELO involved operations. MILSIM is what separates us from being the professional operators we portray from those back yard players you may see anywhere else. It is in fact what has allowed us to take the sport to a whole new level. So with that, I think AMS (American MilSim) should continue being the leading innovators they are and adapt to the newly evolved game it has become and allow the newly introduced weaponry that has been the bases of MilSim (Military Simulation) for as long as it’s been around…please see  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MilSim
     
    Should the M27 be allowed utilization as a support weapon as it is intended and used in our current military? YES! If not, I say we stop calling ourselves MilSim Operators and just start referring ourselves to airsoft players.
     
    NOPE!  Somehow it really doesn’t sound quite right when I say it…â€AMERICAN AIRSOFT†I like it better when I say “AMERICAN MILSIMâ€. AMS, do your duty and work with the MilSim community to find a resolution to allow the M27 to be used in your events.
     
    Lastly, please remember it’s all based on the honor system so play honorably…
     
    CYPER OUT!

    It might be interesting if you could booby trap the supplies with like a index card that says something like "BOOM everyone with in 20ft is dead!" Place the card under a bag or box and just wait for the mayhem. Would require an EOD to check and "disarm" the trap.

    The RPK is about 5-6 inches longer than the AK47, that is about the same difference between the M27 and the 416.
     
    A POV on the field does not mean it is being used as an APC, most are just gun trucks or troop movers.
     
    As for the launchers, well if you have an affordable and readily available solution I am all ears.

    If mid caps are the suggested restriction then make sure the ammo count is that of a standard support gunner. The added weight of the extra mags will better simulate the real world carry load. Make it a minimum of 16 mags so that the player has to deal with the bulk and find a solution to where/how to carry that many mags at one time. If we are going to continue with the M27 looks too much like an M4. then I think the RPK looks too much like an AK47 and it should not be usable either. How about the L86 which is pretty much an L85 with a longer heavy barrel, should they be allowed as SSW? When we start nitpicking over the whether the weapon platform looks too much like the lighter duty weapon it was developed from we are straying too far from the "Milsim" and getting into game lawyer-ing like you would find in a Saturday night D&D game. In the real world the military learns to adapt and evolve.  The same happens in the Milsim community with things like ammo limits, magazine restrictions, new medic rules, and the new ban on auto fire. Hopefully in future the admin and event staff will find a way to adapt to the newer equipment available to the player base like they have in some cases with the Thunder Bs.

    this is just silly.... the new medic drag rule seems a bit much to me but i'm ok with that. but forcing us to use semi auto its just silly... i chose to attend ams events because they where not such hardcore "milsim" as the others. but forcing people to only use semi auto either through honor system (we all see how well that works for calling hits) or being forced to modify my gun (can tell you thats not happining).
     
    and this is coming from a guy who only uses semi auto except on my saw.
     
    there are alot of large events around the country i hope ams does not lose alot of players over this as i do enjoy your events but this keeps going in this direction i wont be attending them anymore

    The M27 is suppose to add confusion to the apposing forces. Like your moving with your squad you have the M27. Scouts see you guys calls it up and sends another squad to take you out. But they didn't know you had a support weapon and you lay down effective fires and able to out maneuver them. It was made so someone can have a support weapon and not get targeted by enemy snipers or guys that in ambush positions. Yes there should be a limit to only mid caps( as the military doesn't allow drum mags and then maybe a zip tie ( or something else) you get when you chrono and AMS sees that it is a M27 and not an M4 your trying to cheat the system with. And maybe even limit to just the Marine forces ( or CoST equivalent).
    I see the M27 adding another Dimension to the SW role and could be fun. But ( and there is always a big but) people will get pissy that they get shot up with an auto "m4" or will try and pass an m4 off as an m27.

    I still say use a specific colored zip tie on the support weapons and that should not be too hard to do. There can not be that many people running support weapon, I would even be willing to buy the zip ties myself and I do not even own an M27. That is a cheap easy fix for the situation.
     
    M27 information from Wikipedia which includes some useful ideas for how it could be used in game. For instance, only Marine units can use them (or the equivalent for CoST) and there could be a cap on the number allowed on the field at any given time.
