    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!

    Absolutely not. I want intensity, yelling, screaming, and cussing. Last year at Broken Home when Caen was about to be attacked by advancing enemy forces, it was your leadership that inspired us to successfully defend and repel the opposition. If I remeber correctly, some of our squad leaders tried to warn of the impending attack, but most folks still just stood around until YOU told everyone to stop fucking around and get ready, at which point I saw everyone grab a gun and go! It was amazing and inspiring and I hope I get a chance to play with you again.

In a milsim we dont need someone whos going to be soft and ask if the way you are speaking or conducting your business on the field is hurting some peoples feelings. WE want to win at all costs, winning = Fun and we all do this to have fun but also to win. Keep up the good work sir!

    Entering the OP we were greeted by a sign stating DANGER Live Artillary Overhead, Proceed at own risk. After entering the facility a convoy of Abrams, Apache, Humvee, and other support vehicles were passed on our way to the AO. With the windows cracked the ring of gunfire and mechanical sounds of military equipment flooded the silence of the plains surrounding it all.
     
    Check in was smooth and painless as always, had the rifles chrono’d and on to the safety briefing. Walking into the Eligiah Mout and standing down the streets of a worn torn city block it was evident regardless of the weather this would be good. Briefing went fast and we were allowed to walk the streets of what appeared to be the remains of a WW2 city. Half Buildings and remains open to the elemtents. Tight neat corridors open to city streets, and at opposing sides two gas stations that would serve as the FOB.
     
    This facility played well allowing you to attack head on through the streets, disappearing in and out of buildings with multiple angle of engagements possible. Sneaking into the woods gaining ground to flank your enemy from behind while your remaining team pushed forward. High perches offering over watch platforms and the shadows to fall back into for those well placed shots from above.
     
    Actual play was awesome with both sides pushing forward to be pushed right back. UFS command was excellent and kept us on our toes and getting us into the action. Top’s Mortar gave us an element to destroy from afar while units gained the ground they could. CDF was constantly roaming and in their mostly all black garb like ninjas attacking when they did. The screams from Kaid while Delbs destroyed him from every angle chanting F* you Kaid. PSA played great but it was our pleasure to snag your flag and deliver it to command for ceremonial photos of it hanging in the Crappers.
     
    UFS War Machine for the win, but Kaiju you brought the fight and in that thanks to all who played UFS and PSA for a great weekend.
     
    Pros
     
    AO was sick and hope everyone had an opportunity to play all of it. Lot of ground to cover but something for everyone.
    AMS staff ran smoothly and even with setbacks because of location at Ft. Hood well organized.
    Good sportsmanship amongst most and as always it’s a game. Die, Repeat, and have fun
     
    Cons
    Weather sucked but Mother Nature is cruel
    People complaining about not knowing rules…. ATTEND the safety briefing and ask questions. That’s the time for it not balls deep on the field causing frustration.
    WEAR your team colors, Headwear most MATCH, Outerwear most Match. I get it was called but come prepared. The Gray jackets also need to go they don’t fit either faction and with both sides wearing them made it hard in low light to make out faction.
     
    AMS staff as always the event was great and thanks for the many hours you put in to make this fun for us. To the Marines that sponsored this event I thank you for your service and for the assistance in obtaining the facility. To all the players thanks for sharing the memories and as always keep slinging BBs. To the person whom was injured and left the game speedy recovery.

    Alrighty AMS and fellow players, here's a short rundown of my experience this past weekend; I'm not really a fan of writing long breakdowns of how each engagement went, so I'll make it brief.
     
    To AMS,
     
    Pros: Awesome AO, thank you guys so much for working to get us onto Fort Hood; from talking with Alex and JP, it sounded like a monumental amount of work and last minute frustrating changes to pull this one off. Despite the weather, I still had a great time. Props to y'all, I really appreciate it!
     
     
     
    Cons:  
    During the safety brief, a big deal was made about making sure to wear the registration and safety brief bracelets. However, neither myself, nor the 10 guys in my group were ever checked for these on the field. Enforcing having these on your person on the field would help cut down on the dudes skipping safety brief and not knowing basic rules (as I mention below).
     
     
    To the AMS player base (both sides),
    Know your damn rules! I chewed out a fellow tan dude for telling other players it was okay to shoot through murder holes. He said he hadn't gone to the safety briefing, thus he didn't know they were off limits. I also had to correct a green guy for yelling at 3 tan players who were within 15 feet of a grenade det outside, but didn't get hit by bbs (I was dead 20 feet away and watching closely). He also had not attended the safety brief.
    Another instance occurred where bleeding out green players were getting heated and caused a scene because they were getting shot while a green medic worked among them. Apparently they didn't get the memo about moving out of the line of fire, which was mentioned several times during the brief, and is common knowledge.
     
    And finally, there were multiple accounts of CDF (or whatever the black top faction was called this event) shrugging point blank hits from the back and hosing dudes with a SAW within 30 feet. I saw this twice in person, as well as generally bad sportsmanship from several of them (blatant overshooting of dead players with red rags out and held high, for example). Maybe this behavior is part of their "special rules" clause they're allowed. I'm not a fan, and would like to know what they can and can't do so there isn't a misunderstanding.
     
    I don't want this to come off as bashing AMS for a bad event, because it was pretty good.
    The cons section is longer because I feel like sportsmanship at this event has dropped significantly from previous ones. Let's do better, guys. The game is as good as you want to make it, and it takes stand-up players on both sides to make a successful event.
