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: Control Pallet Fort – Unlimited respawn
The teams will fight for control of the Pallet Fort. In order to control the fort, the team must plant their flag at the center. If the tide of the battle shifts and the other team captures the Pallet Fort, they can claim control simply by removing the other team’s flag and planting theirs.
Whoever controls the fort at the end of Phase I is the victor. The other team must retreat to the woods.
Phase II: Seek and Destroy – Team Deathmatch (no respawns)
In order to further secure their realm, the team controlling the Pallet Fort must perform a search and destroy mission to eliminate all their opponents, using the fort as their base of operations.
Last team standing wins.
Phase III: HVT Juggernaut – Unlimited respawn
During the previous phase, the Fort Team discovers a High-Value Target in the woods. They must return the HVT to the Pallet Fort. The Woods Team must prevent that from happening.
This Phase ends one of two ways: the HVT safely reaches the Pallet Fort, or the HVT is eliminated. The only way to eliminate the HVT is to pop all the balloons on the HVT.
We will need a volunteer to play the HVT .. must be at least 18 years old and not mind getting shot. A lot.
