Moved to suggestion box, because it is.

Onto the subject at hand, we've done this before. The problem is that none of us here are novelists, and thus the stories end up becoming dry. You usually can't explain a scenario in more than a paragraph or two unless you're an artist with words. Anyways, I'm partial to seeing it re-opened, but it would need it's own section. Let me see where I can't find a spot to throw it. If I do, there will be strict rules that need to be followed as far as format and the like go.

Mosin, would it be similar to over at MIA? I have read a few of them, and with some solid rules, we could have some good stories. I like the idea of its own section, as this lets everyone have their own thread to post in.

If you do end up making a new section, just make sure we do not lose or delete any of the others.

Okay, so, I was playing a backyard game... for kicks. And my buddy Craig came running across out of nowhere. Now, I stalking him previously. So basically, I quickly glanced, bringing my rifle across my chest, I shouldered it on my left (I shoot right) and scope, and just nailed him in the head, COMPLETELY by accident. Poor kid had to go to school with a tag that says "Claimed by Hoggie!" Just kidding, but he did have a little red mark:)
Okay, no offense Hoggie, but this is a prime example of stories we do NOT want. First of all, head shots are dangerous shots. On this forum, talk about hitting people in the head is not something that will be approved. Secondly, the story lacked substance, and needs much more detail. For instance, describe your stalk on the enemy, the climate/weather, sounds you heard, etc. etc. Details help make the story much more interesting to read, and help make the story more exciting.

Again, no offense Hoggie, but everyone should realize these are not the kind of stories we are looking for.

I would like to make a Post about a fun story during a VIP scenario.

The Art of Deception

My squad's mission was to prevent a VIP from crossing the border into our territory and I was assigned to a two man sniper unit. The border came to an arrow head point at the bridge crossing with a river crossing through both territories. I took my spotter to the trench adjacent to the bridge on the south end of the border and we waited for them to take the back way into our territory, we would be ready. There was a watchtower that overlooked the section of border we were protecting from intruders and I commanded my spotter to get up there and take out as many as he could while I take position in the trench. Tall grass and brush surrounded the trench on the enemy facing side and would be perfect cover. We then waited ready for the enemy to try and sneak past our main force and enter our kill zone.

When the enemy approached the border, me and my spotter made up the only defense force for the area. Most of our squad members did not know of the secret route the tenacious opposing forces would be taking to escort their VIP over the border, so it remained mostly unprotected. We were vastly out numbered, but we had a plan. My spotter opened fire with his rifle trying to take out as many as he could. He had a well covered position, but it was an obvious target for the Op-For and they directed most of their attention to him. I planned for this and while staying low in the brush with only part of my body exposed I was able to take out three or four of the enemy combatants with my infamous bolt action rifle, the FMR. Then my spotter got hit, but not before he was able to call for backup. While Reinforcements were scrambling to protect the front it was up to me to hold the line before they arrived. I was just one sniper with my rifle against a large group of the Op-For. I was in the brush taking out as many of those bastards as I could. I fired so many rounds I went through three mags and had to switch to my secondary, the HK MP7A1. When they discovered my position they all started firing on me, they wanted me dead very badly. I was hit and could not fight any longer, but thankfully the reinforcements my spotter called for arrived in time. I called for a medic and told him to take care of my spotter first, we were both taken out of the fight to get patched up.

The mission was a success.

Epilogue

This story was about a VIP game I had played at a Scenario event last summer. I might have embelished a few details. The game did not have medic rules and after I was shot I went straight to the respawn area. The spotter I am talking about wasn't my spotter at all, but I did advise him to take position in the tower. After we were hit my team noticed the commotion and went to cover the area.

The moral of this story: When you are trying to cover an area you might not want to take an obvious position. I was effective at the spot I chose because I used the brush to conceal myself while the player in the tower provided a great distraction. None of the players on the opposing team realized that I was hiding where I was because it wasn't a spot they would have picked to cover the area.

Try to find an area that has good cover and consealement opportunities, but is not a spot that is an obvious position. Use your teamates positions to distract the enemy from where you are. Try to find concealed areas of cover that are close to the structures that people are meant to hide behind.

Using deceitful tactics along with stealth and concealement can go a long way. Deceit is a very selfish way to play, but you can help out your team by taking up positions that could allow you to flank the enemey.

I basically use the tree cancer idea in a different way. I try to avoid using hard cover while also staying close enough to it to distract the enemy.

I prey on the enemy team's schemas, proconcieved notions, on where they think other players hide and where they should hide.

I have yet to make a guillie suit and I've been using this tactic a lot and it has served me well.

No problem Hoggie, not necessarily your fault as the guidelines have not been totally set up yet.

And vamp, once we set this up, I will move this to your own thread within the new section for stories. Don't have time to read it now, but from the looks, I see details; looking forward to reading it.

Mid-Summer, 2010.

I had just gotten my ASR and I was dying to try it out. Our Team met up with several other people from the local area. We had maybe 30 people total.

A scenario idea was put forward by one of the groups. In short, one group would become a body guard contingent for an Op-For executive officer. The objective was a basic one, eliminate the officer.

The rules were simple. The Op-For unit would move out into the forest and set up an operational rally point or ORP. Our mission was to locate and engage the enemy. However conditions stated that the executive could not be moved unless under duress, i.e. they had to pick a place and stay there until engaged. The escape or elimination of the Op-For exec was to be a game deciding condition. How we executed the mission was totally up to us. One condition placed upon the Op-For
