Actually, Hardlock posted an un-official list of tasks
I am saying this because there will be no more C-130 next year but more like apaches or blackhawks. I will be honest with you guys, the more support we get, the more we can get done in the field and on the props...which greatly enhanced the future events.

but yeh, stay tuned...

You guys will be seeing me out there for the next one. I'm pretty sure the rest of the team (that was able to make it) feels the same way. You guys did one heck of a job. After trying to coordinate our own event I have an even greater respect for the work you all have put into this. Thanks for having us out and showing us a good time. Looking forward to BF6.

Disciplinary actions award

As you guys have been reading, the event went pretty well with that many players. Very few incidents occurred and players enjoyed the event atmosphere as a whole. Unfortunately, out of the few incidents to happen, 2 were important enough to require action from Hardlock and myself. Each team involved already or will receive the official letter regarding their respective issue via their squad/team leader. As of now, no names will be given.

Western Forces, Unsportsmanship.
As of 09/11/08, a Western Force team has been banned from any future events. the reason of banishment is what I consider the root of our sport. At several occasions, the team took it on their own to not only go on their own but also told their squad leader they would not follow the event structure or spirit. They lied to their commander and squad leaders when confronted about it and even sent email explaining they had no intention to follow the spirit of the game. No need to say, they did their own thing and it affected greatly the other Western Forces players. We received no less than 8 comments regarding this incident so far.

As you guys know, I make it a big deal to be honest and respectful toward each other and this is what the team involved lacked of. If we don't have respect for the host or for your teammate, why should we even bother going to the event? Yes, we all do mistakes and mishaps but we are also responsible for our acts.

If the team is willing to come back to Springfield, you simply have to reply to the email sent to you regarding this incident. Otherwise, Hardlock and I are truly sorry it had to end this way.

Western Forces, Unsportsmanship.
Early afternoon, a skirmish occurred on the 2nd floor of the hospital. During the skirmish, few poor judgment call were made and few bad ideas turned sour. Without naming everything said and done, the skirmish resulted into blind firing, illegal use of un-approved grenades, bad language and almost fist fight.

What bothers us is not the actual issue (i.e. not calling out) but more about how it was handled. In no time, a parlay was asked and the only way to finish the conflict was after several failed attempt to reach the floor or to kill the players. As fellow players, we should never reach that threshold point where fist can start flying and sometime, it is just better to leave the place and go vent somewhere rather than letting the conflict escalate.

As of today, the team leader will receive a warning letter for the team bad attitude during the event. There will be no more warning for the said team and we expect a flawless presence from now on. Next time we hear or witness similar action(s), it will be a full banishment from the field.

Eastern Forces, Unsportsmanship.
The Eastern counterpart in the hospital incident. Pretty much the same thing than above although you guys took the time to talk about it left and right and you almost seemed amused by it. If someone makes a mistake, be respectful enough to offer a parlay and explain yourselves or keep your laugh and bragging for yourself. We received a good half dozen emails and comment regarding your arrogance and bad attitude toward this incident.

As of today, the team leader will receive the official email regarding this incident and from now on, the team better have a flawless attitude in the field if you want to come back to Springfield.

Conclusion
Hardlock and myself never thought we would have to take action against a player or a team before but it looks like the more it goes and the more players think they control what they want. You guys need to realize something, If you piss off the owner of the field, Hardlock or myself, we will simply be harsher about everything and if it is not enough, we will simply turn the field private. The owner want respect and we promised we would give him otherwise, kiss goodbye to the field, no matter how much investment we put in it.

Plain simple, your attitude is what keep Springfield alive and you must remember that.

Way to go EF! After Emerald City was sacked, I figured he'd had it. Great job!

I have a question...How did the Western Forces disrupt the Eastern Forces communications? Was that because they captured the CO for a short while, or was there actually a prop/player that held the device/ability to stop our Command network from communicating?

Scorpion, the Satellite dish system has been sabotaged by the civilians and unfortunately, the Eastern Civilian were the only one able to fix it. No "physical" device were used to block the communication this year. We did not want players to think someone was scanning or something.

Thanks for the clarification, oh and about the winning. I think it's more about who had fun at the end of the day.

I think Recon Team Anaconda may deserve a tirebreaker for what will be known from this point forward as "The OP:BF5 Railroad Massacre" =D

I soooo wish that epic battle was on video. But I have to say that I was the only member of RTA present at BF5, the other guy with me was with Ronin, who I was with as a guest.

Now that I finally read all 8 pages of this thread, just wanted to say awesome event as always and keep of the good work Strikers. Donations for the event are much better utilized in the field rather than raffle. Everyone played fairly well but I am not sure about the medic rules. Too many people were almost instantly back in the game. Also, there are a lot of new callsigns in this thread which would lead me to believe that a lot of newer players attended the event. Good to hear because mostly everyone was fair.

Too bad Western "lost" this time around. Just looks like there will be more next year to line up and shoot down.

I am wonder if anyone found a pair of OD Blackhalk Kneepads at the end of the game in the field were we all park at. I went to use them last thursday and i couldnt find them. What sucks the most I just bought them 2 months ago. Im crossing my finger on this that someone found them and not a lawn mower.

It's when 2 members of WFm myself and Doc from Ronin, halted a 16 man EF attack for 10 minutes at the tracks by the steal crates. EF's there had 2 SAWs and the 2 WF's just had an AUG and a M4, and I already had one knot in my rope. If not for the medic rules, all 16 would have been dead.
