  1. Broken Home 6

    Few comments from Top..

     

    First off, I want to express my gratitude to AMS for continuing to build on what was started 6 years ago! The years have been ta test in patience and drama that continues through today, but American MilSim continues to TRY and in my book, that counts for more than can be expressed in word form.

    Thank you to all the players who came from all over the place especially those from outside the good ole US of A!! You the PLAYER make this game we play great. Yes, the organizer provides the AO and the scenarios but you all must make it work by following rules and getting into the spirit of what Milsim is.

    I know there are many who will disagree with that last statement but if you look back to where I came from, what we have today is a sight closer than anything we ever had then.

    Now for the I will get into the meat.

    Bad first, this will be short and to the point;

    MILSIM:

    Do you know what that is? Many say they do, but do you? I won’t go into it here but I bring it up because to many come to AMS events thinking it’s a big airsoft skirmish like back home only on a different field in a different place/state. It’s NOT!! MILSIM stands for “MILITARY SIMULATION†so simulating military operations. for UFS that means they are structured like the US military, notice I said “SIMILARâ€, it is airsoft so being a game you get out of it what you put in. MILSIM can be compared to LARPing, we play a role, act our parts within that role and act. If in a leadership position you take that role, if a troop you take that role and so on…

    This means if you are role playing then following orders and getting into the roles you play while LARPing is a good thing.

    If you don’t like the role you chose pick a different one that’s the beauty of this sport, you can change your role.

    Water:

    You players who failed to hydrate and properly prepare for this operation should be publicly called out in my opinion and must wear a special shirt with identification on it marking you as a heat casualty risk for a minimum of 2 games AND you should be medics carrying water that is handed out during said games!!! I am sorry if this is harsh but for the love of all, we all warn, we tell, we preach, we scream, we beg, we push, and still players show up to an AO without proper hydration!!! That is criminal!

    Uniforms:

    How many times does it have to be said that your uniform top, bottom and cover must match? And match your faction color? Green or tan? Amazing that I had members in GREY!!!!!! And wondered why there were blue on blue incidents….. that is stupid beyond stupid…. I get it, it was hot. Plan for that have to right gear or suck it up!

    Enough of that I think I made my point. 😊

    Now the good:

    From my perspective, the Op went well on Saturday once the game got going, yes it took a while to get started but that’s to be expected moving that many folks to start points. Many don’t know there were vehicle issues I do know this and we did the best we could under the circumstances.

    Once the game on was given the battle was pretty fluid I felt, there were mini battles and skirmishes all over the AO by design. That was great. I thought it was fun to try and find the main force of Cost which we really never did as it seemed they had split up.

    I feel over all UFS held the day as the weather caused a hard stop.

    Couto’s to our Vehicle commanders of Brigade milsim, 878 and all the others for without their support and ability to be where we needed them to be I think we would have had a harder road to push through.

    Sunday the Battle more or less started off with a fight for Coleville, however unlike past years I feel the battle was spread out on a very wide frontage around Coleville and the surrounding hills. I personally participated and witnessed some pretty damn fierce and epic fire fights that were excellent! While I will say that UFS didn’t win but COST didn’t gain much either they were honorable and fiercely fought on both sides.  I had a blast witnessing the fight while I bleed out for the umpteenth time.. LOL

    I have read and heard about some cheating and all the normal bull you hear after an OP.. I will say from my perspective I didn’t see anything overt by either side other that what I stated above. And that is something we as players need to get our heads around. Players need to police players. Players make the Game, Players must know the rules, you the player must take the time to be a part of the process. Its these so simple things that will make for a great game.

    I think something we all need to reflect on is that no one is above the rules, myself included. Any player regardless of who they are has every right and obligation to correct another for a violation of the rules. If corrected the violating player needs to own it and correct themselves and thank the player who made the correction. We owe it to our sport and ourselves to be better.

     

    Thanks, you all!

  2. Look to spend 300 to 500 or more just on a gun... HPA, GBB, AEG all are player coice and each of use will tout the advantages of our preference but what kind of tinkering and how much tinkering do you want to do, are you going to upgrade, (yes you will so just except it... LOL we ll do.... )

     

     

    Biggest this is to understand what MILSIM is, AMS games are NATIONAL level events not backyard games... if you will these are ADULT games know what you are getting into! local fields are great and fun and a great place to work on individual skills, team dynamic ( if you are building one), team work with others, what all the different roles you could play in a MILSIM event are.. 

     

    guard duty, over-watch, patrol, ambush, defense, attach, support, medic, radio watch, runner, supply, chow guy, water boy/girl, recon, LARP, or whatever it may be... 

     

    you also need to know the type of command structure you want... Formal military , Mercenary, Corporate, Rebel, Insurgent or what? each comes with a leadership style that may or may not fit your ability to handle... With AMS there are several styles to choose from...

     

    Guns are great but there is a whole lot more to AMS games that a gun.. Radio, appropriate gear, understand the rule-set, have all the correct gear, full-seal googles, dead-rag and a red dead light (night game and indoor), WATER! WATER! WATER! appropriate weather gear... 

     

    read all over these forums there is a ton of info some good some not so good learn to tell the difference..  :)

     

    I could go on but you get the idea

    Commander UFS Forces


  3. Due to some grumblings that have risen lately, I am giving you the players that want to be in the UFS an opportunity to decide who leads the UFS into the future. My way of doing business appears to be rubbing folks the wrong way. I am not PC enough and I offend to many. I will not apologize for the way I play the game. I am intense, I yell, I scream, I cuss, and I try to win. If you are offended by me or the way I do things, make it known. I will get out of the way if you the player want someone different, Not going to hurt my feeling...
    So do you want New leadership for the UFS?


  4. The real world injury was a guy in my squad. He lost balance coming out of a building and ended up dislocation his elbow with a radial fracture.

    Has to have surgery next week. He is in good spirits but bummed of course.

    Hey Yankee, Please extend our prayers and thoughts of fast full recovery!


  5. THIS IS NOT THE FINAL ROSTER! But here is who has paid so far as of 9-7-16... Squad breakdowns are being worked on. the breakdowns will be sent out VIA email you provided next week. Changes and alterations WILL happen until the final roster is sent to us.

     

    if you have preferences contact command @ UFS@americanmilsim.com we will do the best we can to accommodate but no guarantees.

  6. SON OF A BITCH! I hope this was just a mistake and you get your stuff returned! I am sorry for this to happen! myself and Candy were the last to leave the FOB after checking to make sure all was cleaned up and any loos gear was staged for Lost and found. I know there was nothing on the table when I left because I cleaned up the bottles that were left and all loss items were at the garage door with the dummy.

     

    Hope it is returned...

  7. The "Public Service Announcements", what is this? A joke? Just another rag tag bunch of separatists that must be shown a heavy hand!  COST, CDF and now PSA. The proof is in the fragmentation of  the so called movement! Just another group creating a mess and confusion for the innocent people who just want to be left alone. No one knows who is who and why there is so much hate!! 

     

    You want stability and discipline? You want an organized force that continuously crushes rebellion restores order at every turn? Then join the United Federal States, we are unified and we will do everything to defend those who cannot defend themselves! Join us as we stop the bandwagon jumpers who think the grass is greener on the other side of that fence, we will make them pay for creating this upheaval of order! WE will make them regret their choice!

     

     

    We didn't ask for this terrorist movement but you can be damn sure that we will fight for you and your families. Defenders of democracy unite and keep our way of life free of hatred! 

     

    If you value peace and wish your loved ones to be safe, join the UFS War Machine! ONE TEAM, ONE FIGHT!

     

    Commander

    United Federal States!

    One Team! One Fight!


  8. RHETORIC AND LIES FROM THE UNRULY GANGS AND THUGS! 

     

    those that bring about hate and violence have caused steps to be taken! You want everything for free and on the backs of the working class! we didn't start this fight remember this but we will be here to help those who cant or wont help themselves.

  9. *Flash News Report*

    201603160500J

     

    Reports from intelligence gathering sources have Identified (5) five or more potential zones of operations for illegal manufacture and or storage of alcohol in violation of the Volstead Act. Due to continued resistance with established Order and laws, Federal forces have dispatched additional intelligence gathering units into the area to validate and pin point locations of target areas.

      

    Local base commanders have canceled leaves and recalled personnel in preparation for potential action. Supplies and other material have begun arriving at bases and lend credibility of the source that provided this information on the condition anonymity.

     

    Local residence are fearful of another bloodbath and just what peace. Blame the Gangs for the continued violence. One man said “These Gangs that call themselves the CDF need to be stopped! All I want to do is keep my family safe. I can’t do that if I am being forces to hide all the time, The CDF shooting guns, drinking booze and harassing locals. It’s shameful!â€

     

     

    End report…


  10. Dont stress... if you have a paid confirmation for UFS, you are on the team.. we will get it all sorted out.. this roster is a moving target... always is.... PM  Big Candy and he can help get you squared away..

     

    What if we don't see our name on here?


  11. This is as much for AMS staff as it is for the AMS community. 

     

    I know many of our teams have someone that currently attends events as a photographer. (To you that do shoot AMS events, many thanks. You all keep the memories alive.) I'm unsure if this has been a possiblility discussed in the past, but I'm very curious if there could be a war journalist/photographer role for anyone willing to sign up as such. The difference being as follows:

     

    1. Said photographer would still sign up as usual for the event.

     

    2. Photographer would dress the part to blend in with a unit or squad that has been "tasked" with providing safety to. (Would probably be dictated by the event and sides in play, but this would allow them to blend in, roleplay somewhat as active press, and not give away the position of the squad they are moving with.)

     

    3. Photographer could perhaps still adhere to the player medic rule. (Or not. Really that's a topic for discussion in itself. Clearly they shouldn't be exploited as a shield or anything.)

     

    4. Photographer could be an added addition to the field and be understood as a body that shouldn't be shot knowingly as they aren't an active member in combat. (Perhaps they could still be downed as they will inevitably get shot in different situations, but it would be in bad taste and avoided if the attacking party knows they are a member of the press and not a soldier.)

     

    5. Would be required to wear something on their gear that denotes them as a member of the press. (Possibly a large chest sized label clearly stating "press" as is common with many war journalists in our time.)

     

    I think that the role would be great for adding indoor photography to collections posted post-event and give attendees another option in experiencing milsim culture from a non-player perspective. 

     

    Thoughts?

    This is a very good Idea! (inbedded safety Officer/team) if you got the right person who wanted to run this for each side they would be dedicated and become for lack of a better term the team PA (political affairs) or local reporter team, they do a "news paper" or news report from the field that can be posted on face book or web page... or whatever.. as far as what they wear same as the side they are on except a off color vest perhaps and head gear that is marked press or something loud. they get shot they have the same medic rules as the rest maybe.. 

     

    this has merit in my opinion nice Specs!


  12. Since this rule has been implemented there has been little to no issue.. the deal is don't be an ass about it.. if you got the drop and they don't call it you don't light them up in the face nor nads... common sense... this has not been a problem...

     

    AMS players are a cut above and strive for excellence, if you play an AMS game then you are expected to "keep it real" in the sense not to intentionally try to hurt another..  

     

    Have fun, drink water and pull out your dead rag when your dead easy enough.

  13. No one has received emails yet.. we are working as fast as we can with the resources we have... life slows things a bit... if you have a confirmation then you are on the team. if you know the commander you want to fight with ping them Atrox, Kaiju, and Rock. We don't have an OP order yet so we are flying blind and we just got the final rosters  with the latest new additions. creating the unit structure rely on the unit strength and the op ord... We are looking at a few options for a twist that can't be discussed here for obvious reasons...  :P

     

    We hope to have things rolling by the end of this week if you don't you can blame me  :D because its always the Commanders fault anyway!

  14. All the roster is with the company commanders who are breaking them down.. Emails from myself along with final dispositions and guidance will go out in the next few days. We will also post the roster on the secure forum pm myself or Big candy and the company commanders for that PW. 

     

    Facebook is another goo place to discuss information: it is a closed group and you will have to ask for access once verified on the roaster you will be given access.
