Me and 2 DV members will be very interested in going to this.....

However, as this would be a DV event would it count toward DV membership?

As I have been twice now to DV (31st May & 26 July) and obviously this would be my 3rd DV event giving me membership if you allow it.

Thanks

Just to make it clear when i  say "regs" i mean people that come to DV, you dont have to be a member or anything like that as  long as you been or have m8s that come and can voucher that your not a plankinstein.

This is looking like being September I believe, easier to fit in as there's only one DV event in Sept.
Title: Re: The Mall 26th Sept - Discussion
Post by: alexdlcko on July 28, 2009, 10:39:46 am
Will this event count towards me gettting membership @ DV? this will be my 3rd event, or does it have to be at DV to count? Only ask as its a DV event at a different location.

would love if someone could clarify for me please

Thanks
Title: Re: The Mall 26th Sept - Discussion
Post by: stan on July 28, 2009, 10:44:28 am
It's a private day at another site so I doubt it will count towards membership.
Title: Re: The Mall 26th Sept - Discussion
Post by: Firkit on July 28, 2009, 01:21:51 pm
Won't you be coming to either of the events in August at DV? One of them would then be your third. I don't think we can count the Mall event as being a DV one as although it's a private day we aren't hosting it.
Title: Re: The Mall 26th Sept - Discussion
Post by: backlash13 on July 28, 2009, 01:27:30 pm
if its moved to september then im happy :)

Im kinda of nervous about trying new sites, because i always see, what seem to be, super serious players at all the cool looking sites, who will look down on me for two tone :)

But now you guys are having a private day i think i might come along :D

I wasn't planning on it, as my transport will not be available and i also have my 2nd anniversary at the start of the month and my daughters 4th birtthday party on the 23rd.

Will this event be closed to members initially before opening up to the rest? Or am I able to 'put my name down' for it now? As I would love to go to it, as well as my 2 friends who are members of DV

Anyone who looks down at you for having a two tone is an ass! Don't worry about it! its all about being social, having fun and enjoying yourself! Oh and kicking some derriere! :aeg:

Title: Re: The Mall 26th Sept - Discussion
Post by: alexdlcko on August 03, 2009, 12:06:59 pm
Guys a very quick note for all those who are wanting to go the site limit is "328fps (+5% variance) on ALL RIF's. (With 0.2g BBs)"

I only bring this up as some players at DV are running at 320-335 fps and obviously there will be a high chance you will be running 'Hot'  at 'The Mall'

Nothing worse than going to a game to find you can't use your primary as it's running 'Hot'  because you never checked the site limits before hand  :giggedy:.

On another note normal game days at 'The Mall' hold no limit to the amount of BB's you can have. But this might change as it’s a private DV day. In my opinion I would like to see the 600 round limit imposed on the day.

so that allows up to 344 then.

I'd recommend an ammo limit but i'd be very surprised if anyone actually needed to use that many. quite alot of the site is single shot so you'd have to be going some to use it.
Title: Re: The Mall 26th Sept - Discussion
Post by: Firkit on August 03, 2009, 01:00:41 pm
I'm sure we will run with an ammo limit on the day. Thought their FPS limit was a strict 328, so my M4 might be alright after all. Yay.
Title: Re: The Mall 26th Sept - Discussion
Post by: alexdlcko on August 03, 2009, 01:16:05 pm
This may sound silly but it all depends on what they mean by +5% variance. Because if that meant you could fire up to 344 fps then why not just make that the limit with no variance.

It could mean that they will allow one of three shots to be above the limit up to 5%, as not every shot is the same.

Personally I will presume the limit is 328. better safe than sorry
Title: Re: The Mall 26th Sept - Discussion
Post by: stan on August 03, 2009, 01:44:22 pm
that is the uppermost site limit, I know this as I have played at the site.

I'd recommend taking DV's own chrono's though - the blue madbull ones they use were a little inaccurate imo.

you guys just going to roll in your regular combats, or do you have a seperate set of black or urban for CQB?

EDIT: about the lift; I will be able to get there but a lift would make it easier.

However i will need a lift back, ill just be dropped off near one of the motorway junctions(which one to be confirmed) but if it helps at all i live in bristol :)

For God's sake DO NOT put a light on your helmet, unless you have full face protection and  want to look like a muppet. Apart from being bloody dangerous in the Mall, no one will want to ne near you as you will attract all the incoming fire. Torches at the Mall are used quickly on and off, to see where your going and not attract fire.

Further to this, what about eye protection? I have some which kindly fell apart  :evil: when taking them out the case last time at DV and cant really afford to buy new ones before 'The Mall'. If they are available will they be free?

Oh and do we know what the times are for the day? as i need to book train tickets in advance unless some one is driving from/through Bath that can pick me up

as it's a private day, it's likely to be the same times as their normal times e.g. 9.

 have a look at timings on the website.

On a side note, they've aquired the Bingo hall across the street for games too :D

Timings’ for normal days which I would presume count for 26th as well:

Arrival on site from 8:30am

Game briefing from 9:30am – Game starts 10:00am

Game finishes 4:30pm

The car park will be open from 8:30am to 9:45 when it will be closed to entry

If your taking the train put your gun in a large hold all bag if you don't have a gun bag and following these simple rules.

1. Do not keep mags loaded
2. keep mags in seperate compartment from gun
3. keep battery seperate from gun
4. NEVER EVER Get your gun out or any items that give away the fact you have a IF or RIF in your bag.

Follow these and you'll be fine. If you are approached by a police officer make it very clear that you have an AEG which is classed as an IF/RIF by law and that it is not loaded and don't try opening the bag. let them do it. You may not make it to the event but at least you won't have the armed response surrounding you. It's scary :aeg:

well I can say for a fact it is a pretty damn awesome site. Despite not getting to see all of it, what I did play was brilliant - the action (whilst there were a few bottlenecks at times) was generally fast paced, just watch out for the mirrors! :P 

Would definitely go again, however it's a bit far away.

As I can add to the guys who have already said, I can't stress how much you will need a torch/flashlight of some description. You can't go more than 20 metres in most cases without needing to check a pitch dark room out.

From playing there a few months ago, pack light too.

There's no breeze so can get very hot in places and also there are alot of stairs. Most of the games start up in the mall and the safe zone is downstairs in the loading area, get ready for lots of walking up and down.

Bright torches and lots of bangs are the way to go :D

yeah excellent day cheers to Jeff and the Marshals for making this happen. Also a very well done to first and only Marshals too. I spoke to one of them and he said the best ones will be uploaded onto their website. He said he'd pop on the forums and post us a link

All i did was make some calls and send a chq, you guys did the hard work off getting yourselfs there on time and making sure everyone else got there too.
Big thanks to people who gave lifts as we could not  have done it without you and a sorry to dibbles for killing his coffee in the morning and for shouting at dunc for being the first person to come up to me and ask for something :lol: i

Had a great time but this was not difficult considering the people i was with and the site we were at.

To Jeff and Co for arranging such a great day, all I can say is thanks, and on the same, to the staff and marshal's,  :D , after that and the drive back to S Wales all I can say is that I am totally stuffed, that an I got my first airsoft blood wound, from a friendly fire shot to the nose. That all said thou, what a great day!

Title: Re: The Mall 26th Sept - Discussion

I'll second that one, plenty of other sites out there, lets get some more road trips organised like when we can't use caerwent.

all in all it was a bloody brilliant day, well worth the trip, lots of good games i loved the site, very unusualy playing at another since all i know is DV.

big thanks to Jeff and the boys for arranging it and to everyone for comming, it made for an excellent day!

so....

ambush adventures next?  :lol:

Post by: backlash13 on September 27, 2009, 12:04:40 pm
i agree, road trips would be awesome...

also, the music playing i found to be fairly humorous, as the tracks were either mall related, zombie related or just genearl hype music...such as the prodigy :)

was weird though, trying to shoot someone, with johnny cash playing

the pyro to the nose was a little unnerving and im glad u didnt cook it as if it had flashed at that point i think i would have had short hair again.
its the reason we dont allow thermos at DV they can be a bit un predictable.
on the down side the sparks from the things fuse has melted my oakleys lens a bit so i need new ones  :(

I enjoyed myself, was great fun sneaking round the basement with plenty of pyro!

Thanks to all that attended, looks like everyone had a great time.

Jeff should take note and hire marshalls like 'little john' for DV, there's no way they'll get shot when they are head and shoulders above everything - there was no mistaking a head there for a player as you always saw his vest  :P

oh yes, anyone else still got orange bogies from being in that back tunnel at the last game?

Well, I didn't take a camera as I was determined to play the full day, I know Chris forgot his. Did any of us actually take any photos? I saw Jim shooting videos on his phone but aside from that only saw the F&O guys with a camera.
Title: Re: The Mall 26th Sept - Discussion

pretty sure i seen someone with a camera during the 2nd half of the day

Yeh, but they're for the 'personal Jim' collection ;).  Although I took a few videos, most came out poo due to the lighting - i did get one or two pictures though, i'll mail them to olly at the same time as putting them on facebook, probably in the next few days when work gets a bit less manic!

Title: Re: The Mall 26th Sept - Discussion
Post by: Firkit on October 07, 2009, 08:49:02 pm
I think the consensus was the we didn't take any, and I've not seen the F&O guys post any anywhere yet.

Good plan, let us know how it goes  :giggedy: There was a guy taking pics most of the day! he took a few of me in the first and second game and also he was happy snapping throughout the briefing at the start from above

I think it was the chap AKA Fraghaggis.

He does have his own website fragphoto's I think. Have a look on Google.

Last time I looked on there, none of our day was on there.

i tried a "gun-cam" method but most of vids came out poor if at all also the pics were poor due to lighting ill try and salvage a couple and get them up but i would hold your breath as most are too poor quality!
