    Starting a new series at the grassroot level. Each week we will follow a local KC airsofter and get their bbwarz story. The local player is what makes the community, and thus, the game enjoyable, from the local open play to the national op. This series will chronicle their story.

    Highlander is more tan than MC and it isn't allowed for that very reason. MC needs to go.

    Zippo reacted to Alex AMS in ANNOUNCMENTS!!! PLEASE READ!!!   
    Please look over and be familar with the AMS ruleset.  This covers everything from FPS requirements, to medic rules, to uniform requirements.  If you are in violation of any of these rules YOU WILL BE ASKED TO FIX YOURSELF BEFORE YOU STEP ONTO THE FIELD.
     
    You are required to attend a safety brief and fill out a waiver before you are allowed on the Active AO.  This includes photographers, observers, and sponsors.  Please see the event schedule for safety briefing times.  Safety brief is approx 30-40 minutes long, it is encouraged that if you live locally and can register, chrono, and attend safety brief on friday that you do that.  There will only be two safety briefs on Saturday morning.  Don't miss them.  THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS REQUIREMENT!!  If you get there late, you will most likely not be on the AO at start time.
     
    Look at the AMS ruleset as a guide for you to work yourself around.  The way we see it, if we give an exception to one person, then we have to give an exception to everyone else.  We don't give exceptions.

    Bo said it best at the briefing at FG3, imagine a game where everyone follows the rules. Everyone, let's get this change done and set the bar in MilSim ruleset adhesion.

    No more AARs with people with legitimate griping about people not adhering to rulesets.

    As my first op as CO, I went in with a big task ahead of me and in put it in simple terms, have been playing the op since the moment I accepted the gig. It comes as a shock how much goes into prepping for a task like this. It made me realize that maybe I've been too harsh on my critiques of past command staff, and it humbled me as a player knowing that at one time I was the jackass know it all that couldn't be bothered with following an order.

    I began with the stress of knowing that I knew maybe 2-3 people on my roster...most everyone I regularly pair up with was UFS for this op, so it was stressful in the beginning picking my 5 squad leaders that would lead the rest. Luckily, I managed to pick 5 DOPE players that were willing to step up and take the responsibilty that goes with a game of this magnitude. Bulldog, Dave, Yuk, Viper and Ranger, I can't stress enough how all these dudes made my job so much easier over the last several weeks in every facet of the event. Truly wonderful players that I will be quick to utilize should I get a command position again.

    Luckily my main Battle Buddy Tyre stepped up for the 1sgt role, but I was left without an XO...so after a day to think about who I would ask I went for the long shot and hit up an old friend from a couple years back, a dude that most of you old time plays know as Phil from M7. Luckily his schedule worked out and he signed up and took the major responsibility.

    Let me stress again, Command's op begins as soon as we accept the position. Hours and hours go into planning, communication, logistics, and moving all the X's and O's to try and get the win for our teams.

    The game itself was incredible, truly the best op I have ever been to, in the best AO I will ever play at. Faded Giant will always be an experience to be remembered, and the third one is the best of them all.

    Alex, you truly did a fantastic job at running the game, the objectives and fragos were all fun, I would like to see the control points be for more points but nonetheless, the game was dope.

    UFS, you guys gave us a fight every step of the way. Literally....EVERY SINGLE STEP. Games like this really test your ability to adapt and overcome, and you guys forced that.


    Let's talk about CoST. Phil, I owe you so much for the event. Your input and advice in every step of our war theory was greatly beneficial. Tyre, thank you for being our personal bitch, that ran to do whatever task we forced you to do. Brent, thank you for doing all the radio work for the event. Comms went off without a hitch. Ranger, thank you for the coolguy antennas and all the prep work it took to analyze schematics and to get your guys into position. Bulldog...you have the biggest balls of anyone I have met in my life. JP's nasty fall gets the attention...but most of you don't know that Bulldog had a double bypass literally weeks ago, has two titanium knees, a bum shoulder, AND broke two knuckles and fractured his hand at the event, only to have Diesel tape it up. Then, after all that, an hour later he leads his group to take Control Point Charlie. Dude is a badass, and made me feel like a bitch because I had sore feet and the chafe.

    JP, Bo, I want you as combat controllers from now on.

    To ALL the CoST players, thank you for listening to all my orders and immediately doing what I tasked you to do. Thank you having the heart to trust our bold counterflank move that ultimately paid off. Thank you for always playing with the most intensity, and for listening to all my shouted commands. You guys are a great bunch, and I'm honored to have had everyone of you on my roster.

    Also, a very big shout out to Josh and Valken for the prototype v12s at the event. Guys, if you aren't HPA already, make the switch to the V12. It's literally cheat codes for airsoft. Can't stress that enough.

    All in all, the best op I've ever been to. Counting down to FG4!

    GREAT GAME guys!
    So proud of both teams and their leadership! 
    Please take time to thank your command for all the work they did to make sure you guys had a great time!
    These guys don't get to rurally get in the fight and do what you guys do. 
    This was the first time we had TWO new CO's and they did an outstanding job! Thanks CANDY and ZIPPO!
    I can tell you one thing.. When we put all this work into events and they pan out the right way and you guys are happy.. there is not much more satisfying than that.
     
    Thank you all for your support of AMS and we will see you on the field!
