Night Game at ACE on 5/11/13!

We are taking the feedback we got from the last night game and putting it in place to correct the earlier game's issues. However, first some details!

Doors and the chrono station opens at 6 PM. The game start is planned for 730 PM.

Please be on time and ready to chrono ASAP. We will have 2 chrono stations open to expedite the process, but both chronos require light to operate. So it needs to be done while there is light!

Please remember to bring a RED chem light or a red LED light. You have plenty of time to go by Wal Mart and drop a $1.50 for chem or $6.00 for a led light.

Here are the fixes going into place:

1) This game will be semi auto only for all weapons. There will NOT be another game of hosing people that are already hit on my watch. This rule will be reviewed in time, but it is the most popular fix requested by the players so I am getting it in place.

2) The lights will NOT be pointed out to the field, but rather directed to give indirect light

3) I have an entirely new game secenario in mind to make this game more like our day games, such as Ranger v Marines. This will eliminate several problems.

4) New regen rules will be in place to eliminate some of the "envelope pushing" we saw last time regarding regen times.

5) There will be more refs (Including myself) on the field. This means more supervision and more help available to explain rules or resolve issues.

Let me know if you have any comments or concerns. Our goal is to get these night games up to the same quality level as our day games.

Thanks!

    We came a full LIGHT year from the first night game. People were not discharging AEGs in the parking lot, problems with regen protocols were seemingly nonexistent, the semi-auto rule appeared to stop the hosing. So all in all a huge improvement. We still have some issues regarding the proper use of parley and bang bang calls. And we have some people still having issues about accepting the limits of their AEGs, or dealing with normal frustration in a proper way. We will get that cleaned up too, it just takes time.

    A big portion of the player base is having to be educated on the rules, and conduct required to play at a commercial field. This will take time. And those that absolutely cannot learn the rules or learn to fit into the community will be dealt with in time. After this night game I am more optimistic than ever that we are headed in the right direction. :)

    Had a great time as usual, it was definitely something new though, and it was a lot of fun adapting to night time conditions. The new R vs M game was pretty cool too. Big thanks to Roman and everyone else who goes through the trouble of arranging all this and keeping it so organized!

    Embarrassed to ask this but I have possibly one new guy and one returning player. I have one extra rifle with me. If need be, I'll see who in the updawgz aren't going and if they're willing to part ways with their rifle, if not, if someone would step up to the plate and let me borrow one. Will pay back with undetermined and or confidential services if you get what i mean *wink wink* =P Thanks in advance.

    We might still have the flood lights in the same spot, we might just cut down to 2 bulbs instead of 4. Undecided at the moment

    Are night games the same price as day games? $10, right?

    May 7, 2013

    • Roman

      You are correct! :)

      May 7, 2013

  • Max R.

    Do we have to have a red chem light? If yes then why?

    May 7, 2013

    • Roman

      It is your "dead rag." This is used to let the opposing players know you are eliminated and most importantly, to stop shooting you! :)

      Oh okay then
