Weekend Big Game Scenario
Road to Baghdad
27, 28, 29 2009
In spite of record cold
temperatures this Thanksgiving event was a success with 92
Players. Most of which were the regulars who never
miss a Camp Miles Event. Timelines and maps were
supplied to the players, creating an engaging but
The Red team: Team D'mented showed up full
strength with 19 Players and aligned with Team Exile and
Team Tammy for their Saturday victory.
The Yellow team: Sabotage, Trespassers and
Locked On, were leading the points race until the last half
hour of Saturday play.
Both Teams were augmented by smaller teams
Teams were issued three tanks. The
CMP-II Walking Tanks were a huge improvement over the CMP-1
walking tanks. This new lighter weight model, with the
improved gunner line of sight, made this weapon system much
more accurate. The vastly improved vision and head
protection inspired more players to take the role of gunner,
and use the tanks more aggressively. The new steering
strap incorporated on the new CMP-II walking tank allowed
for one handed maneuverability.
Both Teams advanced their tanks with great
determination even after the tank crews were eliminated
repeatedly. Additional players quickly moved forward to take
the tanks forward yet again. Grenades were plentiful
and used with great effect against the tanks. The Tank's
size limited their paths of movement and caused them to
bottle neck at certain points, giving the grenadiers great
opportunities to take out the tanks. Several times
more than one tank was eliminated by a single grenade.
Rocket launchers would have been a real
game changer, as the added range of the rockets would have
been deadly. With the troops being mainly experienced, and
knowing the importance of timing, fierce battles occurred
at the objectives at the times required. Troop
reinsertions every 15 minutes encouraged players to press
forward again and again.
Near the end of the day, with the score
swinging back and forth, the Yellow team felt safely ahead
in the points, and successfully deployed two helicopter
re-insertions into the rear of the field, at a cost of one
point each. The second landing allowed the yellow team to
surround the deeply embedded red team, but even with a last
minute suicide charge, yellow could not dislodge red from
the Baghdad bunkers. The high point value of the Baghdad
bunkers objective gave red a come from behind victory. 41
Storm Trooper pins were awarded.
Sunday, with warmer weather and excellent
turnout, Yellow team came back with a vengeance and swept
the field, decisively putting the points race out of reach
well before the last timed objective.
The entire Yellow team was given the chance
to shoot for free tickets for the next event, and 5 were
awarded for the upcoming Risk Event.
