Every year I leave for Berget with the idea that it could not be better then the year before. This was my 3rd Berget and oh boy I had fun! Our team was amazing, we worked together like we should we fought hard, walked a lot and most of all had fun!
I want to thank Berget Crew for the fast reaction when one of our teammembers collapsed due low something. I also want to thank every person that was in the area for the good care they gave and not want to get arround us just to see what was going on. This happened during the mission with the Car on friday night at CP03. I have footage of that and it show how good everything was. Berget crew brought us to the safezone for a checkup and everything was fine. So they brought us back to UPIR base. Got my gear and went back to the fight. Other teammembers had a small BBQ to close off the day.
The FPS test went smooth! Last year i was in line for 2 hours. This year i was there for 15min.
Berget Shop was good, prices were good but please organise the BAVS rental somewhere else.
I was waiting at the checkout for 30min, i was the first in line but there was something wrong with that players BAVS so the line was growing.
UPIR Base, it was awesome to see that people gave their best to fortify the base. Making trenches, strongholds, ...
We arrived on tuesday evening rather late and we got one tent for Shadows. So we dropped all our gear in that tent and set up our little tents just in case. That was a good plan because we were asked to leave the tent for Lima 02(?), they had no sleeping place. We had some tarps with us and made a shelter for the gear. Luckely there was no rain this year.
I don't understand why there is no map with who stays where in a tent. (or if there was one, i did not see it)
The red side is always like a big family, that was the same this year. If somebody had a question or needed something, people cared and searched for a solution. Thanks Lima01 for giving us a tarp to stay in the shade! We could not return it, you were allready gone.
The BAVS and AT4's should really better distributed. We did our best to fight vehicles without any bavs or AT4. Berget crew should just give all BAVS and AT4's to HQ so HQ can distribute it to the platoons that need it. Then they have first change to rent one. If they do not want it. The rest can be rented by who ever who wants one. Or at least reseve half for each force. I dont know how many BAVS or AT4s we had but i did not see many. Thanks to the HWD for being standby when needed!
Really, how difficult can that rule be. I heard so many different stories on that rule.
1) Placing them, immediately - removing, 2 minutes
2) Placing them, 2 minutes - removing them 2 minutes
3) Placing them, immediately - removing (own mines), immediately , removing other mines, 2 minutes
4) Placing them, 1 minute - removing them 1 minute
5) Placing them, immediately, removing them 3 minutes
Everybody had his own set of rules for the mines. We made boobietrapped mines but i did want to place them on the roads because nobody would have cared. And We got intel that when we lost the stronghold we were not allowed to place mines anymore. We lost the stronghold on Wednesday so we were not allowed to place mines anymore ( the only thing we had left to fight vehicles). On friday we heard that that was wrong and that Berget crew would not supply us with new ones, but we could still use the ones we had."Anti-vehicle mines may also be found, they must be placed visibly on the road. They have an effect in terms of game mechanics only, and simply block a thoroughfare to vehicles. The mines must be cleared before any vehicle can pass. The engineer must wait 1 minute for each mine to be removed. Vehicles cannot pass until all mines are cleared. Mines are OD-green with a yellow marking in the center. Mines will be provided to engineers pre-game. "
And mines need to be the right dimensions. There were mines that were just 10cm (or less) in dimension.
We carry 3 mines per engineer because they are so big. if you see those, that is just stupid.
Solleftea, i liked Harnosand more. The terrain is more different.
The ingame roads were great for vehicles, but we walked everything so i don't care really :p
I had so many good moments that i can't choose one. But waiting in an ambush, watching the enemy car closing on us and stopping 15m from my posistion right berfore the mines we placed, lights flashing in my eyes and i hear the driver yelling to the gunner and the gunner turns his turret to me. And suddenly on guys shoots his BAVS to that vehicle and it starts backing up. Adrenaline, Check! (Video footage will follow)
Berget 15 was amazing!
