This was my third event for AMS and my first ESR-19. So, to start off this AAR, let me backtrack all the way back to Thursday when I first arrived. Thursday: â€‹Arrived early with my brother to the event and got with some of the AMS staff. Being support staff, we (my brother and I) decided to go ahead and help AMS set up their stuff until we could get confirmation where we'd be camping out on the A/O. We put in quite a bit of work, got to hang out with Alex and the admins, and helped get a lot of stuff done. Honestly, I never realized how much work goes into getting an event ready. I can only imagine how hectic it is at larger events like Broken Home. By the time we finished up, it was getting late and my brother and I decided not to set up our giant MGPTS tent. â€‹Friday: â€‹Woke up at 0630 and screwed around until about 0900 and begun to help AMS finish up getting ready for the event. Did a lot of work but geared up and played the Friday night game. The Friday Night game was the first night game I have ever played at an AMS event. I was a bit skeptical at first but decided it could be fun once I saw all the light towers go up. â€‹The first part of the game, I tagged along with another group (since my group hadn't fully arrived) and we had a pretty fun time. I think the best part of the night game was the role play I got to experience with the ATF (UFS) group. It put a spin on the game I wasn't expecting but I fully enjoyed. Anyways, about an hour and a half to two hours into the game, I finally got taken out by what I believe was friendly fire but could have been UFS. With how dark it was, it was hard to tell. I went back to base and met up with a good friend of mine who was also at camp. Since I hadn't seen him in a while, I decided to go ahead and bunk in for the night and catch up with him since the last time we met. We sealed off our tent and began having a good time. A UFS guy decided it would be fun to attack people in a sealed up tent and opened our door and threw in a grenade. This essentially threw us back into the game and ultimately, to make a long story short, we played for the last two hours of the game. â€‹While we were out playing, some people in our camp reported to us that people were constantly in and out of our tent. At one point, I came back to the tent to find my gun case opened and thrown on the ground, my cot rummaged through as if someone was looking for something, and my bag of clothes just laying on the ground. It really upset me that I felt that my belongings weren't safe from players since our tent (according to some) looked like a CDF FOB tent and it was just okay to attack it, scour it for whatever they were looking for, etc. â€‹Saturday â€‹Saturday morning started with tearing down our tent at 0830. With concern for potential storms to hit during the day and the fact that we didn't feel that our stuff was safe from other players, we packed up our tent and moved all of our stuff out of the AO. Once the game started, we were tasked with scouting and defending an area to the north of our camp. An hour into the game is when we started experiencing what was probably the most disappointing game I've played at AMS. To start off, we got into some intense firefights with the UFS from across the creek. There was two individuals in particular who four of us had shot multiple times and they both refused to call their hits. We were probably less than 50 feet from them and you could see bb's bouncing off their helmets. We just kept shooting them until they got us and many of us bled out and went to respawn. After about a 30 minute skirmish, we could hear people asking "hey, you got a speed loader?" and shortly behind it you could here the distinct sound of someone speedloading their mags. We called them out on it but they just laughed and continued to do it. â€‹After quite a bit of fighting, we ended up getting pushed back to our camp. We had some seriously intense firefighting, and I began to see CDF people using speedloaders and shrugging off hits. I even called one of the CDF guys out and he said "there is no admin around. The UFS are doing it, we might as well do it too." I was quite disappointed and ended up having to walk away. We finally made a push back across the road and on the way to the cars parked on the north side of the road, I stopped and searched a dead UFS guy. He began to search himself for his kill card, opened up his pouch and pulled his kill card half way out before looking at me dead in the eyes and said "Oh, I just bled out. Sorry man." The put his card back in his sleeve and walked away. So, I proceeded to continue to the North side of the street where three of us were taking refuge behind the cars from the CDF (sorry to the owners). A UFS person charged our position and I proceeded to shoot him 3 times in the legs. He shot me at super close range in the face (couldn't have been more than 3 feet away from the end of his barrel) and proceeded to run around the corner and shoot our other two guys. As soon as our two guys called hit, he drew his dead rag and laughed. The other guys asked him why he didn't call his hit until after we were all three taken out and he said, "I had to make sure all three of you were out first." â€‹I pretty much decided it was time for a break and returned to the registration area. I was getting pretty irritated at the cheating and the pure disrespectful behavior coming from both CDF and UFS. I sat out for about an hour before returning to the field and going out to a different camp. My squad and I tried our best to push up and hold position but it seemed like it was in vain. We had a lot of people sitting at our camp talking, laughing, and having a good time while only a handful of us were actually trying to hold off the UFS. Once we started getting spawn camped, I called it a day and went back to registration just before the storms rolled in. â€‹Sunday: â€‹Helped the AMS guys get everything tore down and packed up and left Roosevelt around 5pm. â€‹ I loved the AO even though it seems to be prone to the most extreme weather nature has to offer (ice/snow/flood). I hated being able to see people cheat on both sides and I didn't see an admin until almost the end of Saturday's game. Had I not stumbled across a few UFS guys who were cool and playing by the rules, I probably would have said this would be my last big event. â€‹So, to finalize my AAR, I will list the pros/cons that I saw while there. â€‹PROS: â€‹Awesome AO, the ambient light idea for the night game, comms actually worked well for the first half of Saturday â€‹CONS: â€‹A LOT of cheating on both sides, camping in the AO Overall, I have to admit I enjoyed my weekend, even with all the negative stuff I experienced. My favorite part was being a part of the AMS Support Staff. I now see how much work goes into getting these events set up and I must say thank you to all the AMS guys as well as those who volunteer for Support Staff. If it wasn't for all of your hard work and dedication, we wouldn't be able to go out, make friends, and have a good time (most of the time).
