Hey.
Okay, so who here is into airsoft...
I know its a long shot but heck, i'm gonna jst rant about it anyways
So theres a bunch of us playing armies at *Urban Assault*, an old US airbase with lots'a buildings
So the games are pretty big, 150'ish + every second wednesday, and its usually pretty good...
The only downside to todays gameing was we were in small games all accept for one 70 minute round.

So now to the awsome part

The first objective for both teams was in the same building so we pretty much knew exactly where the enemy was going to be...
Being fairly experianced and knowing the site pretty well, my bother, friend and i ran full pelt along the length of the site (we started on opposite sides) and to cut to the chase we basically the three of us quietly cleared the building at 6o clock behind the enemy teams assault
This was an unthinkable move as there was 70 people outside and yet somehow we got through the whole building and upstairs

Still in our team of 3 and in an unbelivable position we all moved into seperate positions and waited for the *slower* enemys to move forward (directly ahead was a 140'ish people in one huge clash...).
So after a very short while we practically had the entire opposing force infront of us and all facing away from us concentrating on the head on clash ahead...

What followed was just brutal and they lost 50 odd people...
We had the advantage of being on the second story (heigh) as well as supprise.. the first few thought it was friendly fire but the majority were dispatched in about 20-30 seconds
The rest were hopelessly sprawled behind crates

The next 10 mintues followed me and my brother (only 2 left) fought hard to hold the upstairs of the building and eventually got noobed from a corridoor on the left whilst reloading (had two 350 mags strapped together hehe).

Asside just wanting to share the most amazing experiance i'v had in in years i think this just shows to any airsofters out there how tactics can make the world of diffrernce...
150 people clashing head on head isnt a great move

Also its quiet possibly the most imence manover i have ever heard of being pulled off in UK airsoft

you bastard!

i am very into airsoft too, but ever since college started i havent had much time. 150+???? my biggest game has been 50 and it was a blast!

i have a very nice full metal custom SPR but my gearbox stripped and my aimpoint died...so im using my dads stock marui g36c. its a nice gun, but having the custom inner barrel and solidity of the spr was the best ever. my bro has a modded mp5 RIS thats a pretty nice gun too.

speaking of airsoft, my buddies and i have been wanting to do some 2v2 action in his woods, and i cant wait. i was always very good and my buds miss playing with me. do you know how good an ACOG 30mm 1x would be for CQB? i know my aimpoint was good but its toast.

i had a marui p90 and miss it dearly. nothing shot that nicely.

get some pics and footage of your action. heres a pic of mine. i do the generic SF getup...but might grab an old olive ALICE harness since the CQC vest isnt very camoflaged in our woods here. -Adam

Hey.
Yeah, my bro's gone from using his muri M4a1 to his new P90 as his primary weapon *grins*.
It is indeed a beaut hehe.
He used it in the above assault with fun results
I'm running an ICS M4a1 with an ali piston to give a litte more range... which is nice, but after today the loud chapping of the piston is less *pretty sounding* and more of an annoyance as i plan to do far more tactical extravogansas

Ironically, yesterday i played my first below 100 player game and i was amazed!
Almost 2 years ago i went to a woodland site and had a blast, i was hooked, then we went to an urban site and i didnt think it could get any better
Both sites are connected with each other (not physically though lol) so i'm used to huge games... 122 is the average but has topped 200...
The game sites are huge, the airbase we play on has about 22 buildings in play and many more that arnt used... their pretty much all double story and its basically mental... There are crates everywhere for cover etc and it works well... kind of...
The only things against it are really the numbers of players to be honest...
Its to many... everyone herds about and as a single player its very hard to swing the game unless you work as a team... and the fact that with that number of people on your team that you just dont know means team work goes out the window...

The only good thing that comes from it is quiet strangly Everyone goes for the objectives in a mad scramble and there are huge clashes...
Almost everyone i'v met playing are happy with this and charge happily into an assault...

I found this gets old.. and it gets old fast, constant 50/50 standoffs that make taking ground a very very timely and difficult affair...

Unlike a real conflict we usually have the advantage of knowing where the enemy is on the battle field, and having seen this process a million times you can pretty much guess exactly where your enemy will be...
When assaulting and trying to push forward, the enemy will almost Never occupy buildings to far behind themselves as they cant get any range beond the front line....

This is perfect because if you can get far enough around undetected you can pull up behind the enemy and the majority of their attacking force is within range
Luckily today we got the most perfect scenario

So yes and no, large games are good if your willing and in good shape as the sites are usually pretty large and theres lots of running to do to get to the positions before anyone expects anything!

The main no's i would give are there is no teamwork The teams are to big and its beond impossible to co-ordinate anything...
The teams tend to act like flocks...

The only other negatives i can dig at are more the site perticularly...
My local in perticular is is very popular, and there are lots of people so its quiet un-personal and at times feels like your being directed about like a flock of sheep...
The games arnt the best ever and unless you have the gutso to be very aggressive and break from the group it does become a very repetitive 50/50 stand off....

On an intresting note, i played at a much smaller site yesterday and i have to admit i absoloutly loved it!!
Partially because the site was an urban layout but had 4 years of overgrowth so it was partially wooded in places
Secondly, although the site was much smaller than i'm used to, the games were just downrite amazingly organised!!
Constant action and with the numbers involved, a really good run can make a big impact on the game

Okay we got rained and hailed on for over an hour, we called it lunch when it was hailing so hard no one knew what was hail and what were hits... but it was unbelivable...
There was always a diverse range of conflict throughout the depth of the site and above all, it was a very very friendly experiance!
numbers were 52 i think so we all chatted away, the host was very friendly, there were many martials. Throughout an entire day i never once saw anyone cheat and not take their hits!!

Okay, i'm gonna call that a post...
I'm really on a ramble here as i'm stricken to a chair after a very very badly co-ordinated running leap out of a window into a very narrow ally like thing lol...
After doing it a million times with awsome results (getting out of a room when a grenades thrown in) i somehow caught my foot, hit my left shin, spun somehow, caught my elbow on the side, rotated, fell backwards, somehow wrapped one leg thru the window and as my weight came down the leverage crushed the muscle on the back on my lower leg, continued downwards, my head hit the opposing wall, back followed with neck jerking stopped my shoulder and lastly landing on my ass legs heigh and very confused hahaa...
So i'm pretty much stuck here.. lucky i work from home on the comp *grins*.

Have to say, after 6 years of skatin, more concussions than i can count, exposed bones (including my jaw twice)... that didnt feel too bad
But it was in the last 15 minutes of the last game and although i was rearing to jump back in and carry on the martials took me asside and after about 2 minutes of standing still i could bearly walk and eventually half carried to the car haha.. just wish i could have seen it for myself!!

this is going to be a long thread with very few participants

lol thats funny. yeah our group was on avearage about 22 last season and we were very tactical...squads of 3 and tons of radio communication, code talk, etc....bomb defusal missions and stuff like that. lots of crazy jungle combat where you get disoriented and surrounded.

get pics man!

I'm actually really tempted to get a camera or sorts...
My current camera's fairly small but would be very inconventant to carry *sighs*.
Radio communication is something we should deffinatly work on

I just cant get my head around that whole situation
Just the three of us taking out sooooo many people...
If you told me this morning i would have laughed hahaa.

Every time i think about it i just get sooooo rediculously excited about it... At the time the suspence whilst skulking to our positions it just got better and better and before we knew it we were there, it was just happening as you'll know, you just take it as it comes and planning your next move, think about it all later... but thinking back to it... ahhhh.
I'v played many a game with lots of people but never even heard of anything like this being pulled off!!!

I'm going to make it my mission to get kitted out with a camera and pull it off again in a couple of weeks haha.
Its sooo easy but you have to be very lucky, very quiet and not get seen lol...
Still cant get my head around the whole damn thing

unnnnbelivabbblleeeee!!

Gotta get round them flanks *grins*.

The best i can give you for now is
http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/news2/
for a forum and some good reviews on guns and random stuff, give the site a brows and also
http://www.freefirezone.co.uk
Urban assault jst down the page is my local but at the bottom of the page there is a link to an airsoft site map so you can see if there are any sites near you and it should list a website if they have one

Beware people...
This as well can become addictive

i played semi professional 7 man dood....

but now that the competitive pball scene is overpopulated by selfish, egocentric, two dimensional hipsters, im done with that. i loved the atmosphere until the xball craze started....now its so commercial and people are just dicks. ive sold my impulse, matrix, and intimidator and i am done with paintball until the scene clears up or i have a kid old enoough to take ballin'.

airsoft is hundreds of times cheaper and a ton of fun. doesnt attract nearly as many hot heads, and its more about group fun and less about who is wiping.

anyways, to get very good equipment to play airsoft you are looking at less thn $500 for EVERYTHING... so its an attractive hobby..as after that all you need are cheap bbs.

Airsoft in the Uk isnt that cheap....
£200 and your talking a nice gun, about it.. then theres batteries, kit, bb's ect.
this all being said i'v never really painballed seriously ha, so i cant compare i guess.

Having played paintball twice, i'm still gonna vouch for airsoft as i found out yesterday in an urban arena, these tactics i can see getting us far wouldnt work in paintball due to the differing game structures lol...

its very cheap here

$200-250 for a good marui AEG + an extra few mags, battery, charger, and a set of camo and you are well under $500.
