Looking through game threads. I've noticed a few things

1. If a game allows someone my age to play does my guardian have to come with me or can I just bring a note saying its ok?

2. I've noticed a lot of different game types. Scenario, Team vs Team etc. And those are simple enough. But Tug of War seems weird. I know what classic tug of war is with a rope and a line if you cross you lose, but I have doubts that is what a tug of war game mode is. So what is a Tug of War game all about?

1) Signatures can easily be forged. But that said you'd kind of need a ride to the field. It really depends on host though. Some will say it's alright but others will require parent/guardian to be on site just for liability reasons if anything. They also don't like being "babysitters" so at least if your parents dropped you off and chatted with them for a bit and stayed for a few gamedays then they might let your parents just drop you off and go shopping or w/e.

2) I suspect it's either a "flag push" type game (push your flag to opponents side of the field) or maybe a "zombie" type game (2 or more teams try to kill players and any players that get hit join the team that shot them and they can go back and forth not like a zombie game where killed players are permanently zombies. ie. 4 teams of 4 players the goal is to kill other teams players to get your team stronger and eliminate all other teams by taking their members). Really I don't know what a "tug of war" game is but I would think it sound like one of the above two game types I've mentioned.... But TBH you'll learn the rules of it on the day of so don't worry.

EDIT: I don't think I said it yet but if you didn't say your age I would have honestly thought you were either a really smart 17 year old (ie. actually listens to advice and doesn't QQ about stuff), or 20+. Good job with that keep it up and I'm sure that your local players will have no problem having you join in their games.

Well a ride isn't a problem, I have my own car & license, my worry is that my rent have no problem with me playing, they just don't want to put any real effort into it.

You can always ask right. Nov isn't that far away although by then the season does start to wind down and your only recourse is to play at indoor fields.

From what I've seen though, if you asked me (and no I'm not an admin or anyone special, I'm just some random player) I would say yes as long as your parents approve and are at least willing to meet once to give them a talk about airsoft and at least get a safety briefing so they know safety is paramount and all that.

Tug of War (ToW) is a skirmish game with only one "flag" that needs to be transported to your homebase. The "flag" is typically a large and/or heavy item that may require the complete focus of a single person to carry, or more than one person to carry. It is typically placed mid-field (or a location equal distance from both homebases). If the person carrying the "flag" is hit, he is dead, must drop the "flag" immediately, and must return to the respawn point before returning to the field. The "flag" can change hands frequently, and skirmishes to control it can get pretty hectic. The game is called ToW because you're trying to "pull" the flag into your homebase.

Field size usually depend on how many are playing per side. The game emphasizes coordinated movement, and offensive/defensive tactics while on the move.

Ok I'm looking closely at the CA M15A4 RIS and wondering what is the largest battery size I could fit into a CA crane stock (which it comes with)
