Debriefing Crimi Events @ Final Destination 21/04/2018

The weather this saturday was great, perfect for an outside skirm. The location of the event was Meerle, in a forest normally used by an artist to exhibit his artworks.

There were 2 gamemodes one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The one in the morning can easily be dismissed at it was a complete joke. This terrain is twice the size of darkforest and the mission going on that morning used just a tiny portion of the terrain. The effect was that because everyone was so concentrated on these spots, you got flanked. A lot. The only solution was to flank this flank, but this flanking took you away from the objective (Flank you very much.). And even when you flanked their flank, they’d be flanking the flank your flanking! Which was very counter productive to actually participate with the objective.

Anyhow enough flanking. 😉

I also have to mention that there were a couple of confusions around the use of pyro’s. The organisation cleary stated at the start of the event: NO PYRO’S. So you can understand that we were a little pissed that FP03 and myself got fragged, by a loud pyro, 2 seperate times. The users claimed that some marshal said it was okay. This was bullshit because earlier that day Chris from CRIMI and the spokesperson of ATCX stated that there were no explosive frag grenades allowed.

In the afternoon there was a new mission, driving a 2 truck convoy through the forest. We were on the escorting side. This mission was impossible due to the nature of the terrain. Since you had to be in front of the vehicles for them to move running straight into dug in enemy players.

After the organisation figured out this wouldn’t work, they changed the route to the main road. Which was a (excuse my language) complete and utter shite idea. First of all the main road had 2 treelines running along it, they were used as cover. The thing is you could only use one side of the treeline. Which forced us take cover behind the trucks or take cover behind the trees on our right-hand side. So most of us were using the trees, but there was a catch. We could only shoot to the left of the trees (shooting from your left shoulder) due to the foliage which gave us a major disadvantage.

All of this combined with the slow paced game-play due to high temperatures, lack of motivation and the whole thing being a walking simulator we called the day early.

To end this debrief I think I speak for everyone that this event was a disappointment. The terrain itself was great, but the mission weren’t thought out and lacked substance.

The verdict: Great people, great terrain but a not so great realization of the missions.

-FP04 Out

Debriefing 08/04/2018 Nuketown XL Crimi Events

It was great weather last sunday, so good in fact that we had an indoor skirm (sadface). Anyhow we arrived on site and from the start it was clear that our team was a big part of the players that day.

The game was hosted on a terrain owned by Airsoft Adventure, but Chris from Crimi events took care of the missions that day.

In the morning the mission was a domination game. It was close in the start, but after learning the terrain our team dominated that round.

After the break, we went and played a deposit mission, where we had to deposit coins in a box in enemy terrority, we also dominated this mission. We dominated it so hard that we decided to end the game early, since most of the enemy team already went back to the safe zone to let of some steam.

After this FP forced break we went to play the last gamemode, planting charges at different bomb sites again in enemy terrority. This one was pretty meh since most players were getting tired. In the end one of the marshalls (who had been resting all day) joined the enemy team and planted the bombs (he also knew the bomb sites their locations before the game started :'(.  )

To summarize the day, it was a great experience playing with so many FP members on a CQB field. The things we learned here will come in very handy on our next visit to The Chambers.

Untill then FP04 Out

Debrief Sunday 25/03/2018 @ the chambers

You know those kickass airsoft days when everything just goes great?

Well this sunday was one of those days!

Although the day didn’t start so promising for some team members. Like FP17, he had major air issues with his hpa rifle and once at the field he had to fall back on his (broken) aeg. Luckily FP16 has the skills and knowhow to make this AEG a quick fix. (his aeg that is. RIP his hpa) Thanks to FP13 who brought an extra spring with him to the skirm.

What a team effort even pre-game 😀

The weather was great as well. Lots of sun and no wind at all. Just a great day to pepper the enemy team with BB’s.

We had an attendance of 11 Forest Phantoms. This paired with the people who played with us for the first time via a friend or relative. Made us a force to be reckoned with on the field.

From the start it was obvious that the enemy team would have a rough day as they started with most, if not all, players with rental kits.

We all started airsoft that way but you know that playing without team, without comms is hard. Anyway they did put up a fight … sort of.

In the morning we had to collect flags and bring them back to the respawn area, our FP01 (yes I’m referring to him as an it not as a he) did a glorious sweep and brought back 3-4 flags after just 5 minutes gameplay.

After that speedy start we had the enemy surrounded,we controlled all mission objectives and the biggest part of the field.

In the afternoon there was an engineer VIP that had to blow up strategic strongholds placed all over the field. We changed our respawn with the enemy team but again we controlled all mission objectives and the biggest part of the field in no time.

At 14.00 h our FP01 decided to defect over to the enemy team with the whole FP squad. We tried our best to help team orange (prior our enemies) have some fun and kick some ass. But most of them already lacked motivation (after our ass-whooping given to them prior to this switch).

As a bonus event, crimi-events added in an extra fun factor that would last the whole day: an easter bunny aka Cleanshot!

He was given an EASTER BUNNY SUIT and his mission was to collect as much eggs as possible. You could only kill the bunny with knife or pyro and he was armed with just a shotgun so it added a lot of fun to a great day!

Overall we can say that we have again met new people and  introduced them to the world of airsoft and lets hope we can add them to our team. It also great to notice that people really start to recognise the Forest Phantoms on the field

FP05 Out!
