facilities, rest and game area

Post by Colin23451 » 25 Aug 2009, 03:12

Another question I have is how often do you get rest. I mean i know there is a deticated time from 0300 to 0900 but that can't be all. 6 hours a night would be a little hard for a week. Also I know they have showers and toilets in the safe area but how often might one get the oppertunity to use them? Also how large exactly is the game area, i mean how far can you be from the safe zone at any one time. Thanks

I had been wondering with ROTC program you were a part of, but now I am pretty sure it must be the airforce ;)

- At B7 every base had toilets.
- At B6 and B7 NATO had showers (mostly cold)
- The game area is in the region on 10sq km (it does not sound big, but wait till you have to move from one side to the other)
- I guess you could easily be about an hours walk away from the safezone at any one point.


Once in game it would be rare that you really need to go to the safezone, at least from the NATO point of view.

No Army actually sir, but i was just wondering also do the tents at base have cots or not I know we need our own sleeping bags but I was just curious about the facilites, and it's a proven medical fact that adults need a minimum of 8 hours of sleep a night and teens need 9-10. I can do with less but I think it makes everyone iratable and less effective. I also don't mind getting dirty but I would like to get clean on occasion. I also find you comments disrespectful and only kjsaw was helpful. I've never been so I asked questions, I would like to think I would be a little more respectful if I was in you posistions. One more question what is the average high temp during the day over there?

No cots provided, no cots allowed; While the tents provided are big enough for a few cots, the tents were not designed with them in mind, sleeping mats are what is used.

Temp varies wildly, I have been freezing at berget (B5), and boiling at berget (b7). At this years game it would have been much more comfortable sleeping outside.

With regards to the 8 hours (or more), if you want it, you will get it, no one can force a player to wake up and join the game.

Sure the SRP can, because they are all supermen ;) I seriously love the way the Finnish side works and the mentality with which they approach the game.

hey thanks all I needed to know, I figured it was mats, I was just wondering. I can opperate with no sleep, I'm just grumpy. Infact on my FTX we only got 4 hours to sleep, after a 18 hour day of very hard work but the problem was it was so cold and my sleeping bag wasn't big enough for me. So I was shivering all night, as were most people. So I really just closed my eyes. they had heaters but they were new anduntested, the only people who felt semi warm were the people who could put there legs on them. We couldn't even turn them up all the way because it would blow a socket. We all had to do fire watch witch BS because if there was a fire at least it would have been warm. It's funny now, wasn't then. So trust me, I can not only take it but I can still dish it out. I'm no wimp, I was trying to gather inteligence to know what to expect. I do appreciate your finding time Commander/General/Sir to answer my questions but as I have learned questions just can't be stupid unless the person asking was there when you had allready given an answer. And finally although again I suspect the answer is no does anybody do or have any sort of facilities to do any kind of laundry. Again Thanks

Just a quick comment here. I know some people think that the majority of people that play airsoft dont really know anything about the military. And this might be true in some countries and for some age groups.
Berget as an event has a LOT of players from Sweden, Finland, Norway, and other countries that all have some form of National service. And even if the nr that now serve is smaller then 15 years ago, very many players have been in the armed forces in some form or other. Also, some of the players have a LARGE amount of military experience from operations in several warzones. There is ofcourse nothing wrong with you wanting to share Colin, but the reason some people "make fun" is becouse you are far from the first to come onto a airsoft website, and belive (or be seen as beliving) that you have "real" experince, and the rest of us are just playing a game with little or no clue.
Dont take this the wrong way, but read, learn and you might be supprised at the level of play when you come to join us next year :)

Colin, as a newbee you need to be reasonably physically fit. Don´t go and start to worry about how will I fit in. Watch, listen and learn from the more experienced, you will easy recognise those guys. Remember you are not staying in a hotel, so organize your own comforts, like a decent sleepingbag etc. What the military manners are concerned, again listen and watch diciplin is very important. With the right attitude you will have a great time.
