i dont want to start my scenario "career" with a long event like that. i guess a short one will be good experiance for me. 26 hours is a long time, but that really sounds like fun.

The team that I play on will be there. That is about 40+ players, if everyone shows.(Team P.P.O.N.T.I. = Paintball Players Of No Tactical Importance)

See you there

Take the challenge, try to make 200 paintballs last for 8 or more hours(other than not shooting).

German side holds the city, if this is after they captured it from Russia. The biggest part was when Russia re-claimed it. It would make more sence to make it when Germans hold the city.

are the teams going to be split evenly? i dont want to be one of 150 germans vs 600 russians, i dont care about historical accuracy, but thats just not fair. i havent found a single person on here, pbnation, or anywhere (about 100 total) thats going to be a german.

What could possibly go wrong.

I think that the Russians will be holding the city. Paintballdude23 is right, it would make more sense to do it after the Germans took it, but I think I remember hearing somewhere that the Russians would be on the defensive. But maybe my memory is just bad.

When it comes to making money, Skirmish has their stuff together. Beyond that all bets are off. However, I continue to go because I always manage to have an AWSOME time. But it would be really nice if the would get the reffing under control. The problem is that there are just too many people to watch when the feilds are so HUGE. it would take aprox 600 refs to adequately ref a D-Day game. They could definately afford it, but they choose not to.

Thinking about it makes me mad. I'm gonna write Chuck Stoner am email right now.

I just got one of those flyers in the mail from Skirmish. It says "Siege of Stalingrad: 2 Castles + 3 Vilages, 8hrs of Play, Missions every 15 mins, Lighted fields, Props, Raffle, Costume prizes."

So, it's gonna be played on the same fields as the Castle Keep games, which is what I expected/AWSOME. One of those 2 castles is the Tippmann Castle which is FREAKIN HUGE!

The villages are sweet too.

I hope I can win something from the costume prizes.

Oh, and there's something else...

"Just let me say this, the past weekend was the most enjoyable scenario game I've ever been to! The game play was outstanding, the refs were good beyond all previous games and the set up was the BEST! Don't stop the progress on being the best field in the nation! ROCK ON!"
~ Tom B., Operations Officer, Team American Anthem

That's also on the Stalingrad flyer. I don't know what game it's in refference to, but it gives me hope. They are getting better.

Oh, and the "Missions every 15mins" sounds like a big improvement aswell.

i just called Skirmish with a few questions. she said so far there were 19 russians, and i think 16 germans registered. but theres a lot that reserved a spot. i asked if the teams were split up fairly, and she said theres so many russians and not many germans and they cant tell if they will be fair yet.  so which side will be attacking the castle?

so im pretty sure im going to be a german since theres a shortness of them, and i enjoy a challenge. "Got to bring the Russian Bear to his knees!"

No, see the Germans killed civilians (Jews, Slavs, Russians, Handicapped, Homosexuals, etc.) The Russians just killed soldiers that tried to retreat (cowards) and traitors to the state (Cossacks). I mean, it wasn't their finest hour, but still...

And to answer your question, the Russians were protecting their homeland after the Hitler and the Germans invaded. Without the eastern front and a victory at Stalingrad, its quite possible the Germans would have won the war. Since I come from Russian heritage, I feel its only right that I play as a Russian.

Plus, its just a game

email sent to me from skirmish The Russians will be holding Stalingrad.  Based on numbers,  we are
expecting it to be similar to last year...between 600 and 800 players.
The fields we will be using for Stalingrad will be:  The Pentagon, Gauntlet, Airfield, Dye Castle, Tippmann Castle, Bobcat, H.O.D., Shadow, Fox, Bandito, Brookside, Firebase, Alamo, and Fort Skirmish.

that should asnswer some questions about the game
