^ Its actualy $100 a case plus tax. If you have 12 people it will be $72. And if your caught with your own paint they will kick you out. Its easily over a $200 day.

BY the way, I dont think Im going to make it. Vacation.

I'll most likely be there with a few friends. Hopefully I'll have my custom pro by then so I can go crazy on the beach .

It can't really be categorized as woodsball or speedball because it can really turn into either one. A scenario game can turn into anything because it's spread out over a large field with hundreds or thousands of players. It's almost always out in the woods but if everybody bunches up it could turn into more of a speedball match in the woods. Anything can happen and eliminations don't really matter which is why I love scenarios. You win by accumulating points so there is a more strategic twist to the game instead of just plain elimination or capture the flag. Scenarios are a lot of fun and I highly recommend them to people that are into woodsball. If you really only like speedball then scenarios might not be for you since they almost always take place in the woods and you don't get consistent speedball-type action. I like both speedball and woodsball so scenarios are heaven for me.

so who's going

- I am definitely going and it is the best scenerio game EVER!!!!!!!
What fields do they use at night? Anything lighted?

-They use the woods all day and all night. Nothing lighted. Night vision is the best. I usually play and go back in one more time after its dark for fun. But the its time to kick back after.

fireworks, mass confusion, balls coming from everywhere...whats better than that?

-Nothing is better then that. it adds a scary element. Turn on a flash light and get lit up. Pretty off the meat. Now if you could find a way to shoot a bright light in every direction youd be unstopable mwa hahah

do you guys go to the campground,go home or just sleep up against a tree at skirmish?

- Definitely get to camp there for free. So nice when filling up paint or getting a snack. there is plenty of room and its alot of fun.

with 2700 people last year how bad was it to park? what were the lines like for air, paint and food? also how does d-day run?

-Parking was cake. Plenty of room. A little hard to find though. The main Skirmish building is a little bit aways from where the main field and camping grounds are. We showed up last year and didnt know where the camp grounds were. Luckily they left a note (I swear) on the door (well flyers actually) on how to get to the camp grounds. I am glad they did that. I hope they do it again next year. The lines for air were fine if you have compressed air. CO2 was a pain in the neck. Youd have to go far away. Maybe this year they will do the smart thing and put the two next to each other. Man getting CO2 was a pain for some. Luckily I got to use compressed air. Lines for food were just fine also. I never had to wait for food. You can get more info on the game at Skirmish.com

Things aren't looking good for me, sadly. Money is scarce now (especially after i get my custom pro ) since my job sucks beyond belief and the friends I planned on going with are now going on vacation just before the game. If I can't find anybody else to go with then I'm just not gonna bother. A game like that is something you have to bring a friend to otherwise it's not the same.

It sounds like fun. But the prices are ridiculous. $99 a box of paint? no byop? just a little ridiculous. I must be cheap because I wouldnt spend that much on paint. and i shoot two boxes when i play in a couple hours...

No, you're not being cheap, $100/case is outrageous. If you buy with a bunch of people and get like 12 cases then it comes down to $75/case though which is still too high but it's much better. You might want to cut down on your paint usage anyway, more than 2 cases in a few hours is quite a large amount. I don't think I've used more than a case (or even an entire case for that matter) in a 7-8 hour day at the field in years. I only use about 1.5-2 cases at a scenario. You must be an animal out there .

Yeah, 1 case is enough. I bought 2 for the 2003 D-Day (I had just gotten my e-grip and wanted to MG) but I didn't use it all.

I'll probably be there. Haven't missed one yet.

Mod98: I'm probably gonna be goin' on this one without a group. If there is a group it'll be my soon to be gf's friends from BU. You can hang with us if you want. Havin' no one there to see you kick ass sucks. Much more fun with friends/ witnesses. I think I'm goin' Americans this year.

SchoolU101, I'd be glad to meet you out there and join your group. I'm most likely going to be American again. I'd like to be on the german side but the beach is too tempting for me, I have to storm it . I'm sure the germans go through more ammo anyway since we keep reinserting right in front of them. How many do you think you'll have in your group? I want to form a group of about 10-20 people and just keep running missions if it's possible. If we stick together and work closely we'll be unstoppable. Every time I do something like this or see it done the effects are devastating for the enemy. When I find out if I'm definitely going I'll post something and we'll figure out how to meet up.

Mod98commando,

Last D-Day I brought 16 people with me. I've run a few groups to other games since then, but I can't take that anymore. I really don't know what's gonna happen in terms of numbers, but unlike most, I am willing to work. Everytime I try to rally people on a mission the responses are always the same "Nah...I'm just gonna hold down the fort here" or "I'm not carrying any ammo crates" or "yeah, just a sec..........." Know what I mean?

I'm not gonna have a group this time, but no matter what happens I'm game for team work. An organized group really does devistate everything. I'm sure we'll be able to find a few good guys in the field if our group isn't big enough.

Like your's, my plans aren't clear. I'm gonna be going to Frontier Wars at EMR just 2 weeks before D-Day. That should be good. Once things get more solid, we'll get in touch.

Sounds good SchoolU101. Just send me a PM sometime and I'll get back to you asap. My dad is pressuring me to find some people soon so we can get the hotel taken care of so I should know who I'm going with pretty soon.
