Chrono Starts: 9:15am Team Selections: 10am Briefing begins: 10:30am Game Starts: 11am Saturday Morning Game Ends 7pm Sunday Night Colony Wars Background: As a virus ravaged across the world, wiping out 90% of the human population, need for supplies is at an all time high. As the government became corrupt and supplies ran out, people were forced to rely on themselves for resources. These people formed tight nit groups whose only goal was pure survival, but in a post apocalyptic world no group can be trusted. These highly trained well organized colonies are in it for the long run; and know there is only enough resources for one group. Creating their own chains of command, four separate entities will fight for control of land and resources. Each colony has taken refuge in either a warehouse, a police station, a school or a hospital. They each have their own advantages over each other, and their own weaknesses. Who will make it out alive, and who will fall under the pressure? Each colony will be split up according to color of BDU, if you wish to be with a team, please come in the same base color. Colonies will be assigned a BOA Owner, Ref, and a predetermined BOA Team to help run the colony. Squads of 8-12 will be sent out on objectives that will need to be completed in order for the colony to remain stable. Collection of gas for generators, food, digging wells and setting up commands points are essential to keep peace within colony walls. Don't like your colony? Take over another one! Need to pass through one colony's territory in order to complete an objective? Negotiate a ceasefire. Respawn/Medic: Each colony will be assigned one medic to send where ever they are needed. Players can be "healed" twice by the medic before they need to return to their colony for extended care. Players will be re-spawning in groups up to 10 every 10 minutes. (I.E. First player in hits timer, up to 9 more players can join in on his time, they do not have to reset the timer for each player.) Points systems: For each objective, Foward operating bases (FOB) held, colony taken over, etc, Colonies will be given credits. Players can decide how to spend these credits during the game, or you can choose to save them. Colony with the most credits left at the end wins the game. You can purchase extra medics, Troop transport vehicles, extra resources, choose to build up the defenses of your colony and more with these credits. Vehicles: Troop transport will be available for each colony. Vehicles may be stopped anytime of the field and searched when they are not displaying a white flag. It is recommended to only stop a vehicle if you have the fire power to support an attack. Capturing FOB Points: Three points are put in between pinch points on the field. These points will be checked every hour. Whichever teams flag is displayed will be given extra credits. War crimes: Actors will be on the field as neutral parties, shooting these parties intentionally will result in lost credits. Communication is essential for colony survival, it is HIGHLY recommended you bring a radio. BONUS! Each player will be given a BOA colony wars patch with their admission.
