So I've been playing paintball for about 7 years now and am planning on going to a scenario for the first time in March, specifically "Flag Wars" at SPG in Rome, Georgia. I'm wondering of anyone's been to this event in the past, how it works (haven't found any information other than there are flag stations for points), how it stacks up to other larger scenario games, and some tips / suggestions for how to play the field.

I really want to start going to more scenarios, but never seem to have the time or money.

Also, anybody planning on going to the UWL event in South Carolina?
Work hard. Play hard.

I havnt played that event before - wrong side of the country. But there are some tips that might be helpful for any scenario game...


Load up on air & ammo - you're likely to be on the field for longer periods of time than in most rec/woodsball games. so plan accordingly. Use your largest pack/harness, carry your largest air tank (heck, bring an extra one if you can fit it). Some games use on-field re-insertion points, so you might be away from the staging area much of the time. Carry extra water too...either a camel back or slip a plastic bottle in your harness.

Look for props - keep your eyes open for anything that looks out of place, it could be a prop that your team needs. Ammo boxes, envelopes. a strange cardboard thing that looks like some kind of rocket, or even a small Chinese statue...all could be an important part of the game. If you see something like this, let a more experienced team-mate know asap. It could be a booby-trap, so be carefull what you pick up.

Dont be afraid to role-play - If someone in a costume walks up & starts talking to you, you might do well to listen. Role players may have valuable information, or they could be a spy, suicide bomber, or powerful ally. Go ahead & get in character when interacting with other playes...you might feel silly at first, but thats ok (see next rule)

Your personal dignity is an expendable asset - dont be afraid to get goofy if the situation requires it. I haver personally seen players recite poetry, sing Christmas carols, re-enact scenes from movies, fight with plastic light sabres, sing the "I'm a little teapot, short and stout" song while dancing down the road, and even dress in drag. All for mission points of course. Welcome to scenario paintball.

Pay attention during morning briefing - all the details will be explained. Listen up & take notes if you have to. Its a different game & some different rules apply.

And of course the most important - just roll with it & have some fun.

Drink water, a lot of it. You can get dehydrated in the winter and during cold weather (Trust me)

Living Legends will be my first big scenario game..

ive been to several mini scenario games but LL3 is not comparable to that..

all i can say is pay attention at orientation bring a note pad and write down what ever you think is worth remembering..

and try and hook up with some guys or gals there.. let them mentor ya for a bit and if you like rolling with them stay.. if not.. well.. hopefully you have a good enough idea when you break off..

Most true scenario games I have been to are two day events. If the field/event producer allow on site camping head out on Friday and spend the weekend out there. Also take some food with you. If you are going solo, just take some freeze dried hiking rations or MRE's. If you are going with a couple friends, then take a grill and everyone can pitch in on the meal plan.

Even though you have been playing walk on for several years, scenario is a different animal. You will want to find a team you can run with during the game. When I attend Viper's May event at Sherwood Forest I have been running with Team WOW and Rag Tag Renegades.

If you find yourself having a hard time getting into the story line and working the missions do not get discouraged. You can still be useful out there. Even in a scenario you still need players and teams that run and gun. Basically running and gunning is keeping the other side busy so your mission teams can get the points to win the game.

The most important thing is...... COMFORTABLE BOOTS.

My first was only 6 hr...and a 24hr one was going on at a rival field, so we only had 200 or so out there...
Weird thing was they decided to divide it into six 50 minute games...that kind of sucked. Very difficult to get even close to a flag in that time, even without losing anyone in my squad.

I need to go up and try XCalibre sometime :)
