FactionsAlmost all players will start the game as Government Forces. But, eventually, they will abandon their positions to join one of the rebel factions:
Blue Rebel Faction
Self-respawn: Harris BridgeFOB: Fort HarrisInsignia color: blueRadio channel: 1 (462.5625 MHz)
Self-respawn: MAC BuildingFOB: noneInsignia color: greenRadio channel: none
Gold Rebel Faction
Self-respawn: Zombie StumpFOB: Wolves' DenInsignia color: goldRadio channel: 2 (462.5875 MHz)
Radio CommunicationIf you have a two-way radio, keep it set on your faction’s radio channel. You may monitor the other factions' channels, but do not transmit on them. VOX mode, hot mic-ing, and channel jamming are all prohibited. Please familiarize yourself with your radio and program in its channels before arriving at the field. The Baofeng UV-5R is popular in airsoft and has programming instructions linked HERE.
No TreasonYou must remain loyal to the faction that you are currently on and not betray them, because any form of treason will break this game.
SituationThe MAC is the capital where the dwindling Government Forces have rallied to protect their last remaining assets against the Blue and Gold rebel factions who have simultaneously risen up to overthrow the Government while also fighting each other for control of the supply assets and the destiny of the country.
The Capital (MAC)The vast majority of players will start the game as Government Forces who must remain inside the walls of the MAC building until they get recruited/converted into either of the rebel factions. In contrast, the Blue and Gold rebels must remain outside the fence of the MAC complex. During this time, no players are allowed to be on the grounds between the MAC building and the MAC fence. The fence gates are to be kept closed.The Government is tasked with using their guns to guard the assets around their capital by shooting at any rebels who try to take them. Meanwhile the rebels are tasked with trying to steal those assets. Blue and Gold rebels may attempt to approach the Government and perhaps negotiate peacefully, but the Government is not required to respond in kind. Eventually, it will become easier for the rebels to take the assets because their numbers will grow while the Government's number decline, and the rebels will gradually get the codes to all of the locked assets as described below.At about 12:00, Omego will allow the remaining Government soldiers to exit the MAC building and move about the grounds of the rest of the MAC complex, but they must still remain within the fence.At about 13:15, the Government will be totally wiped out, and all players will be allowed to roam freely throughout the entire airsoft field and anywhere inside of the MAC complex (fence & building) except for the Game Control Room which will remain off limits to everyone.
RecruitmentPrior to startex, the founding members of the Blue and Gold rebel factions may write down the names of those whom they would like recruited into their respective factions in the order that they prefer, but they are not guaranteed to receive those players especially if both factions request the same individuals.Government Forces will be recruited at a rate where they will all be gone from the MAC by a target time range of between 13:00 and 13:30. Every 15 minutes after startex, a small group of new rebel recruits will be released from the MAC with red rags on and are to report to their new factionmates to be healed in by their new comrades or go to their new self-respawn pole if no one is available. Blue and Gold rebels should have someone ready to meet up with the new recruits and decrypt their code cards as they exit the capital.New recruits will be assigned to the rebel factions proportionately with more being given to the faction that has the fewest asset-control minutes at every 15-minute recruitment interval. For example, if there are a total of five recruits to be released with Blue having 60 minutes versus Gold having only 40 minutes, then two will be recruited to Blue and three to Gold. For the most part, friend groups will be recruited to the same faction so that they can stay together; although, they will probably not all be recruited together during the same recruitment interval.
AssetsAt startex, 14 supply assets will be sitting on the ground just outside of the MAC fence. Most will be chained and locked to the fence with combination locks and guarded under the protection of the Government. If you are on Blue or Gold, your objective is to steal as many of these assets as possible and bring them within the walls of your FOB to keep them there as long as possible while preventing them from being stolen by the opposing rebel faction. First, you will want to identify and take the assets that are not chained to the fence. Then, you can come back later for the locked ones after you have acquired and decrypted the combination codes to their locks.The assets that you take may be hidden and booby trapped, but you are not allowed to make it too difficult for someone to just grab and run off with them after they find them. Rebels are welcome to raid the enemy FOB and steal their assets.
ScoringIn order to begin accruing minutes for the asset that you just brought to your FOB, you must notify Omego as soon as possible by providing the number written on the asset and its location. You may use your own radio on your faction's channel or the provided Baofeng radio that is located at your FOB. Any delay in notifying Omego could delay your accrual of minutes. Call Omego again if he fails to confirm receipt of your message. Each faction’s minute accrual will be started and stopped on Omego’s smart phone. Everyone with an internet connection may monitor the scoreboard in real time through this URL: https://multitimer.net/board/?q=oq288t0c6zIf an asset is taken out of your FOB by you or enemy, you must radio that to Omego as well. Likewise, if you remove an asset from the enemy FOB, please notify Omego immediately. This is a game-control duty, so you are expected to keep Omego updated on asset locations even if you are hit.
Ciphers & CodesPrior to startex, the few players who will begin the game on either Blue or Gold will each be given cipher cards to be used in the game to decrypt the codes to the combination locks that hold the assets to the MAC fence. Each new recruit will be given a code card that may be decrypted to possibly reveal an asset number and its lock combination.
GoalThe rebel faction with the most asset-control minutes at endex (15:00) will be declared the winner.
Open World OptionAfter about 13:15 when everyone has been recruited into the rebel factions, the game may become more like a free world event for those who want to create and work on their own objectives. For example, they may attempt to capture and interrogate other players who are also willing to do such role playing. Meanwhile, those who are interested in winning the game for their faction should remain focused on that goal. Nevertheless, all of basic rules, such as the Hit & Respawn Rules, will continue to apply to everyone!
RaffleIf you stay until endex, we'll give you a FREE raffle ticket which will give you a chance to win a valuable prize.
Swap MeetYou are welcome to buy/sell/trade your airsoft equipment in and around the parking lot and staging area during the morning of this event.
