Check out Trigger's fb page for the game announcements, the last game was last Saturday I think. I just heard about it recently so hopefully I'll have a chance to head out there, although I think it might be a night game... I'm not sure if NS actually requires bio's but I've converted over so my entire bb stock is bio anyways.
I've only been to two drop in games, rest have been sims, or games w/ the omega/lmag guys. The most recent drop in was super shitty which reflects what people have been saying about the 'drop in' game quality (unintended pun
). The other drop in game was a few rounds of decent attack/defend which played out ok but that was sometime last year and I think it was ran by a veteran player not panther staff.
Yeah... every time I see those graves I wonder why they don't fill them in. No one goes in there cause of the shitty muck and they're an unnecessary safety hazard even in the day. I've almost gone in once or twice pushing up on church.
As for some of the branches...
(stolen from imgur's combat medic stories)
They should clear it up a bit in some areas. Every time I run into a pointy branch that's screaming "I'M GONNA IMPALING SOMEONE" I just step on it and snap it as best I can.
Oh if the head's the only target then its fair game, but I've seen too many guys get lit up in the face by noobs around corners and at point blank on full auto... full face protection all the time. I don't fancy a line of bleeders or a busted lip/teeth.
There are MED's I just don't know if Panther enforces them (or any rules to be frank). I've heard mentions of semi only within 10-30feet and secondary requirements for BA's but I really doubt the new players running the 500fps BA's can judge distance properly... no BA certification requirement and all that... They've started chrono'ing as of late, but I doubt that its any good since their pb chrono is shitty as hell and measures off anywhere from 50-100fps..
There's a whole wealth of rules/guides/games/MED's made by BCAC/OPFOR/LMAG/OMEGA in the past decade or so available to them if they want to take advantage of it... but imho, after Milsig acquired Panther, its just a money grabbing scheme. Yeah, they've physically improved some things like the parking lot and driveway but they should've really focused on improving quality of game play before anything else... sit down, plan out some designated game types for different parts of the field, don't just head out there and be like "attack and defended, unlimited spawns 15mins then lunch break".
Haven't actually seen that many Tar-21's around, gl w/ the upgrades and your buddy. I planned on getting some friends into it as well this summer but I doubt any of mine would be interested after seeing the new pricing... they'd rather stick w/ late night badminton at $15 lol.
