Our Commitment to You
The field managers and event producers will follow through with this operation regardless of the weather. We are fully committed to delivering everything that we advertise and greatly respect the sacrifices that you make in order to attend our ops. Your opinions and improvement ideas are valuable to us, so please share them.
Phase I: CTF Omar vs. Grizzly Den – Unlimited respawn
One flag will be at Outpost Omar, the other at what will eventually be The Village. Capture the enemy’s flag while defending your own. Phase I will be 45 minutes long.
Phase II: CTF Grizzly Den vs. Outpost Omar – Unlimited respawn
The same as phase one, but the teams switch starting positions. Phase II will also be 45 minutes long.
Phase III: Three Kings – Unlimited respawn
A cache of gold bullion was reportedly dropped somewhere inside the AOE. The team that finds it and safely returns it to their home base is the victor. If one team quickly overwhelms the other, we will extend the game with “defend the gold”.
The crate is heavy, and MUST be carried by two people. If one of the players carrying the crate is shot, they must immediately drop (set down) the crate after calling “hit” and immediately return to their respawn for their 3-minute cooldown. The remaining player is not allowed to “muscle” the crate themselves. They are not allowed to drag the crate. It must remain in place.
If the crate is shot, BOTH players are hit, and must set down the crate and immediately return to their spawn for the 3-minute cooldown.
Players cannot carry the crate and use their weapons at the same time. If they need to return fire, they must set the crate down.
