Definitely the red list in action - huge NWO gun grab in progress.

I will be watching this thread very closely. Ask all questions in PMs and don't cloud this thread up.

You guys need to relax with anything not germane to the development of a prospective patch.

I would advise everybody to not post again until they have an actionable design in mind. This five page thread has yielded one design and it didn't even result from this thread.

If this devolves any further, the thread will be locked.

While the sentiment is probably in the right place, this would probably be very awkward for Ron's family and his numerous friends from outside airsoft.

You should probably dress in a respectful manner and not look like a militia member.

Today, Nil8r (Ron Bilodeau) passed away from complications resulting from his battle with brain-related issues.

A friend, mentor, son, father and pillar of this community, his loss diminishes us and we will remember him forever.

18: All non-GCA/NFA firearms and ammunition, privately. Carbine, shotgun and rifle ammunition from a store (no pistol ammunition - this is not illegal but it is very, very common, Walmart, Dick's, etc).

21: All firearms, privately, all ammunition from a store.

Anybody who says otherwise is wrong. Fresnel, etc.

I play LoL but mostly ranked 5s, trying to break 2000 Elo.

I love the fitness standards. I would say though, that unless the playerbase has changed significantly, you are pricing yourself out of the market.

You can use vagisil too. Anything slippery as long as you have enough of it.

I voted yes.

Airsoft games are about airsoft, not honoring the fallen and veterans, etc, etc. It's noble and nice to say that, but I don't need a day or weekend blocked off to do that. Not to mention 99.99999999% of veterans alive who are unaware of what airsoft is would be like 'WTF?' if you tried to tell them that to pay them respect, you imitate them in the woods on the weekend. Raise that up to 100% if you're out of shape. Too many ops gloss over the actual gameplay and just focus on the pageantry and use this as a blanket excuse for not having a winner, or a loser.

However, by the same token, almost every op I've ever been to has an inexcusably bad point system or a point system adjusted on the fly. If you're going to have actions broken down as points, have them be commensurate of effort and set ahead of time. Measurements are common in everything; manufacturing, business, other sports, etc. If I set out at the beginning of a fiscal quarter and said I'd measure the success of my staff by x, x and x and then I changed those 2/3 of the way through, the data would be useless and I would acting unethically.

There's been too many games where like, you got 1000 points for defending a point way out in the middle of nowhere that had no strategic value other than simply existing, but you got 350 points for disabling crucial enemy assets such as armor and transporation or by conveying neutral strategic assets long distances (Night Scorpion 2 comes to mind; we brought a box of screaming babies [dumb] like 3 or 4 miles down a ravine and up a pretty steep grade and received less points for this activity than we did for simply grabbing a flag the previous day).

I guess my answer is more like 'yes, but only if they are done properly.'
