CHECK THE RULE SET AND TACSTOP FIRST
Each event will have a UNIT breakdown (weapons and uniform and everything you need to know) but there are a few cardinal rules for EVERY event we host. Before you start asking questions - check the TACSOP. If you see something missing or wrong, let us know.
What is MILSIM?
MILSIM standard for Military Simulation. Also known as ‘Airsoft’ it is the practice of immersing players into scenarios that provide opportunities for teamwork, leadership and often tons of excitement.
MILSIM helps teams coordinate and challenges players to develop as small unit leaders in somewhat stressful situations. Whether you’re an individual or member of a team, we want you at our event.
DO I HAVE TO BE PRIOR MILITARY OR LAW ENFORCEMENT TO JOIN AN EVENT?
OF COURSE NOT! Our events are open to the public for registration. There are no experience levels or prior military or civilian experience required to join us. We encourage registration from individuals, squads, teams or even whole platoons (if you have one).
There are a SET OF RULES for Military Simulation that are common across different organizations and we expect registrants to understand the common rule set or at least be able to pick up on it during the initial event.
Of course we provide rule briefings before every event.
WHEN IS YOUR NEXT EVENT?
We try to schedule events and give a 90-day window to potential shooters and other participants. We find that picking and choosing the right venue and time offer us the ability to tune our events a little better than just throwing up random dates and times. Any other dates and times are usually posted to the EVENT PAGE or facebook page.
As we have new events scheduled, we’ll be sure to post how and where to register. Since our events are pretty popular, we have been known to take a certain number of registrations, then shut down the registration when we reach that count. We try to keep everyone in the loop on how many seats we have available for every event.
WHAT'S THE AGE LIMIT FOR YOUR EVENTS?
Our events are 18+ unless otherwise noted in the event information. All attendees must complete a WAIVER for each event attended. This WAIVER must be signed and filed prior to the event starting.
In certain situations and locations, we will allow minors (ages 14-17 only) to register and participate in our events. These are taken on a case by case basis and are subject to discretion of the event staff at the time of the event. All minors will have parental consent filed PRIOR to starting the event.
WHAT DO I NEED FOR EVENT CHECK-IN?
At the time of check-in we will require the following:
- Valid Drivers License or Federal ID
- Digital or physical ticket for registrant
- All participants WILL CHRONO prior to the event (typically at check-in)
- You cannot check-in for squads/platoons – individual check-in only
- Can I spectate an event?
- WE DO NOT ALLOW SPECTATORS.
Our AO (Area of Operations) is vast and only registered participants are allowed in the battle areas.
If you are part of the PRESS that wants access to an event, CONTACT US and we can make arrangements for possible access to event areas.
WHAT ARE THE ACCOMMODATIONS?
- Each event will have specifics on accommodations for participants. To save money a lot of team will camp in listed locations on the event description.
- All participants are responsible for their own accommodations but we do our best to keep it local to the event to avoid unnecessary travel and cost.
- Toilets at the event locations will be provided. Additional equipment (such as light towers) will be provided as the event requires.
- Make sure you bring a container for water – during the event and after the event. Hydration is important.
CAN I BRING MY CAMERA(S) TO THE EVENT?
Helmet Cameras, weapon cameras and body cameras are allowed. Keep in mind that if you are wearing cameras, you should consider making sure those devices are secured to your person or equipment. We can’t stop a full event just to help you look for your helmet camera.
Other cameras are allowed between engagements but don’t spend all your time taking selfies or you’ll get shot in the face.
AS A PLAYER, WHAT DO I NEED FOR ONE OF YOUR EVENTS?
We have a full blown detailed TACSOP to tell you everything you need to know…. This includes everything from the ‘minimum standard’ of equipment required to a full packing list for a multi-day event as well as night operations.
When an event is announced that has special requirements (e.g. rappelling gloves, ghillie suits) - those will be listed in the event details.
NOTE TO TEAMS AND FIRST LINE LEADERS: You should come prepared with everything you need for at least 24-48 hours. This includes food, water and other items to live in the field. BE SURE TO CHECK LAST MINUTE WEATHER REPORTS for the event area in the case of inclement weather. The event will not stop while you try to acquire additional gear that you should have packed if it’s raining or otherwise sucky. Our events go rain or shine - extreme
CAN I BE A HEAVY WEAPONS GUY OR A SNIPER?
Snipers and Heavy Weapons crews are limited in count on each side. Since we do not allow standard participants to use high capacity magazines and focus more on military tactics, we try to limit the amount of Snipers and Heavy Weapons on each team side.
Please coordinate with the STAFF to find out availability at each event for these positions.
YOU GUYS RUN NIGHT OPERATIONS?
Depending on the location and time scheduled for our events, WE DO RUN NIGHT OPERATIONS for team members that want to participate. Be sure to check out what is required for NIGHT OPERATIONS in our TACSOP.
CAN I VOLUNTEER TO BE PART OF THE SUPPORT TEAM?
We keep our support teams to a core group of people. People we trust to do the right thing and people that know Airsoft as a sport. In order for you to be considered as support staff you would need to have participated in some of our events and we would need to know you on a more personal level.
We don’t trust our reputation and our customers ability to have a good time to people we don’t know. Get to know us at events and we can work something out.
If you already know us, drop us a line on facebook so that we can make coordination's for upcoming events.
DO YOU GUYS ALLOW GRENADES OR BLANK FIRE?
We have an overview of what the player limitations are as far as equipment and other items – please review the TACSOP or EVENT INFORMATION when it’s posted – it will tell you everything you need to know.
Each event location may have different rules and regulations so we will do our best to keep team members in the loop.
WHAT TEAMS ARE AT YOUR EVENTS?
Our event information will include the participating teams and factions available for your to join. Please review the event overview for specifics (e.g. weapons, uniform, equipment) and how you can register for each team.
We run a 'scenario' based game so we may or may not require (2) teams at some events. We have professionals that will be available at some events and may require everyone to enlist on the same side.
As you know, there are cheaters in every sport and MILSIM is not an exception. When cheaters are identified by OBSERVERS or by MULTIPLE MEMBERS of a team (either their own team or opposite team) they will be identified and reported to the STAFF.
ONLY STAFF ARE ALLOWED TO CONFRONT CHEATERS – DO NOT GET IN A CONFRONTATION ABOUT CHEATING WITH ANOTHER PLAYER. IF A PLAYER IS OBSERVED AS A CHEATER, WE WILL DEAL WITH THEM DIRECTLY. IF YOU SUSPECT A PLAYER IS NOT CALLING HITS, CONTACT NOTIFY YOUR CHAIN OF COMMAND – THE WILL CONTACT THE STAFF – DO NOT CALL THEM OUT DURING GAMEPLAY.
Typical punishment is removal from the event with no refund but each incident will be reviewed - you yelling at other players doesn't help anything.
NOTE: WE HOLD LEADERS RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING SURE THAT ALL OF THEIR TEAM MEMBERS FOLLOW THE RULES. If you have a question about the EVENT RULES, contact our STAFF.
