Why ambushes suck, or the waiting part at least

This weekend I went to my first LARP and I lived with these guys in a camp in the woods you see behind them. (I haven’t found any pictures of me yet)

One of our tasks was to hold up a caravan and steal their moonshine.

Step one: Discuss tactics and wait for hours until they pass us to collect the alcohol.
Step two: Wait in the bushes for another hour to ambush them when they pass by again.
Step three: Discover that they tried to sneak around us, throwing all of our tactics out of the window.

"Fire positions!"
"There they are, run for it!"
I heard twigs break and two guys carrying a wooden beam ran past us. A bucket of moonshine was hanging on the beam. Then everybody started shooting and we all spread out into the forest. Sounds of bbs ricocheting and screams followed.

Upon someone screaming “come on you bastards I’ll kill you all!” I responded ” Then you’re gonna have to aim better than that!”

I fired one shot and didn’t hit anything, the other guys did all the work, but it was still an awesome experience. The only negative thing was all the waiting, but in the end we managed to get the alcohol and returned to base.

This sums up our apartment pretty well. Rifles and cats.(We don’t have any carpets because we have a bug problem.)

Reflection over tumblr

A lot of text doesn’t mean you’re right ESPECIALLY IF IT’S IN CAPS

A ragequitter never wins

BF3 Battle Report

I joined the team in a time of despair.
They were behind 150 points and were bleeding tickets.
It was a Conquest map with three flags, A, B & C.
If your team has less flags than the other team your points/tickets start ticking away. At 0 you lose.

It was far from a great match for me.
My team-mates did everything else besides focus on the objectives.
I died and died and died again, temper rising, getting pinned in bottle-necks which led me closer to ragequitting by the second. Their tank got into what was supposed to be our base, flag A, and just as I was about to ragequit I hit the tank with a rocket and got a triple-nemesis-comeback kill. Satisfaction.

That became the tipping point in the match.
I solved the tank issue by mining the road to our flag with 7-10 AT mines which left me kind messages of retribution on the screen every now and then as I was away at flag B fighting camping infantry.
Vehicle Disabled.
Vehicle Destroyed.

When we were down to 20 points vs. 60 we suddenly captured flag C which still wasn’t a guarantee for victory, all they had to do was kill 20 more of us.
We managed to keep them at bay in their base.
The last thing I saw on the screen before the white flash of light was 3 points - 2.
Did we lose? Did we win?

Suddenly the screen rewarded me with a victory text, a few ribbons and a Suppression medal for reaching over 50 Suppression Ribbons.

I’ve had matches where I’ve had too many ribbons to count, but this was one of those matches where they meant more even though they weren’t that many.

I ended up with the satisfaction of a hard earned victory mixed with clenched fists of almost rage-quit-rage.

I got these two pretty cheap.
I’ll probably use acetone on the CQB model to get rid of the color though.

"Honey, I just but two more rifles."
"Mhm?"
*Sends her lots of lolcat gifs*
*Hears laughter*
Relationship saved.

Me and my gf went to see the last rehearsal for Elektra, an outdoor opera here in Umeå, Sweden.
Explosions, rivers of blood, giant steel structures walking around…
I think my larp costume needs to improve drastically before the weekend comes.

These pictures are pretty light, I’ll post more fire and blood later.

WHY WASN’T I THERE?

I’m sorry! I only had two tickets. We can hang out and do something else that’s much cooler than opera.

The Swedish Home Defence’s slogan is “Always Everywhere.”If I had a airsoft team its slogan would be “Sometimes, Somewhere” because we’d probably be too lazy to get together.
