Warning cold weather and rain!
The nights during the Berget week will be unusually cold for this time of year, we expect the temperature to drop down close to zero degrees Celsius during the nights. Make sure to bring warm clothes and good sleeping bags with comfort temperature for 5 degrees or below.

- Bring extra sets of warm clothes to use primarily when you are wet.
- Bring green tarps to re-enforce the tents to withstand the heavy rain that is expected to come.
- Be ready to dig 10 cm deep ditches around the tents, and be well aware that the tents do not have any fireplaces.
- Make sure to bring your own tent if you play on Civilian, PMC or GCT.

For security reasons, we have rented a sports center close to safe-zone that can handle drying of clothes and sheltering of wet and cold players.

Important information about tents.
This year Berget-events have chosen only to provide the 5x10 newer tent models to the players. We have invested a large amount of money in this since the old tents are worn down no longer fulfill their purpose. However we have only tents for around 800-900 players.

Those players that will be provided with tents are the ones that chose to sleep in a Berget tent when booking their ticket. This means that several hundred players that have chosen to sleep in own tent cannot change their mind and needs to bring their own tents.

The rules for player brought tents are simple, they can be in any size but needs to be green, camo or OD (no red, pink yellow ones etc). Civilian players in the village can however bring any tent they want. As usual we recommend players to bring a green plastic tarp to cover their civilian tents to withstand rain more.

Any questions about this please send an email to us.

Berget 12 game-area map i out!
Here is the ingame map for Berget 12, please notice the map markings in the bottom of the map. Dont forget to read and learn the previous newspost about the mined border zone. Get the map here

The border minefield
A special rule will apply for the border splitting the game area between Lerando & Guyana. The border is following the big power-line crossing the game area. Under this power line, the ground is filled with a mix of old and new anti-personnel mines and vehicle mines. No person or vehicle can cross the boarder besides on the three roads (small tracks are not counted as roads). When crossing the border on the roads, you may not step more than a maximum of 2 meters from the road (All road-crossings will have a yellow line marking next to the road where the minefield starts). If you go any further, you will be considered hit by a mine. Walking out on the boarder (under the power line) is considered suicide and no medic can heal you if you do so. This rule also apply to the Guyana border police because of the fact that both country's have been putting mines there.

However, there is a way to clear passages through the minefield using special engineers. Some engineers will get “mine clearing equipment” pre or during game. This is basically a mine sweeper device and and yellow marking band.

To clear a path through the mine field: the engineer needs to move ten meters into the minefield (under the power-line) then mark a path with two yellow bands 1-1,5 meters apart. After this, the engineer will have to wait 2 minutes to walk another ten meters and continue making the path with yellow bands.

When the engineer is on the other side of the minefield two yellow bands must run the whole width of the minefield, showing a clear path through the minefield. When the engineer is on the other side and the path is ready other players can safely pass through it. NOTE! Only the engineer can occupy the path while it is being constructed!

You can fire upon and kill an engineer clearing the minefield, a medic can not move out on a unfinished mine path to heal the engineer but another engineer can go out and bring the first one back for healing. An unfinished mine field path can be continued by another engineer with a mine sweeping kit.

NOTE ! It is only the Guyana border police that can remove a path through the mines by using their own engineers, it follows the same steps as opening a path but you do it backwards, remove the yellow band for ten step. wait 2 minutes then remove 10 meters more of band.

To sum up:
No players or vehicles can cross the minefield/power line besides on the three roads and on by engineers cleared paths (path with two yellow bands). The minefield is clearly marked on the player-map (released soon) and will be following the big power line crossing the whole game area. Breaking the above rules is considered as cheating and will lead to warning / ban.

Interview with president Rico
The following article has been approved by the Lerando Ministry of Education and Censorship (LMEC).

As the only representative from western media, I was given the opportunity for an exclusive interview with the newly elected president of the republic of Lerando, the man that is known only as Rico.
For those of you not familiar with Lerando, It can be said that it is a small, south American country, that for many decades has been plagued by civil war. Despite its small size, Lerando is estimated to supply more than 16% of the world’s raw opium, and before his recent elevation, Rico was rumored to have made his fortune in the drug trade, through the organization (now political party) called “The Ravens”.

In 2014, Lerando had their first democratic elections since the separatist revolution in 1954, when the county separated themselves from their larger neighbor, Guyana. The Ravens received no less than 104% of the votes, and their leader Rico rose to the position of president.
To meet him, I am escorted from the airport to Lerandos capital “Ricotopia” (Former Lerando City) in an armored car followed by four motorcycles. I am taken to the capital building, called the “Ravens Nest”, and led to a waiting room. During my entire stay in the country, I am surrounded by security personal for, as it is explained to me, “my own protection.”

After some time, the president enters and sits in the chair in front of me. He is dressed in a military officer’s uniform, and his left eye is covered by a black eye-patch. My first impression of him is hard to describe. He does not seem perfectly comfortable in his uniform and in this luxurious room; I rather get the impression of someone used to much simpler surroundings. In his own way, he is a bit intimidating. He is not very big or physically impressive, but when he looks at me with his one good eye, I can’t help but feel a bit naked and exposed. His manners are polite, but a bit odd in some way. He almost seems a bit distant, like he has trouble focusing on the here and now.

Me: Mr. President, it is an honor to meet you.
President Rico: Yeah… what… yes, of course it is. I can see that. For you, an honor, sure. (Paus) And you are here to.
Me: Yes, I am. Congratulations to the election, Mr. President. 104 percent, that’s an impressive victory.
President Rico: Yes I am very proud of the people of Lerando. They know what’s good for them.
Me: So tell me, mr. president… Is Rico your first name or your last name?
President Rico: What difference does it make?
Me: Ehhh… none I guess. I just… It is rumored that your family name is “Perez”. Is that true?
President Rico: Family names are meaningless. The only name that matters is the ones that say something about you. And the only one that knows everything about me, is me! People should choose their own names! What do I need a family name for? I like it short, simple. Easy to spell! Easy to shout! I only need one name! Like Madonna! Or Cher!

Me: I guess…
President Rico: That was an extremely stupid question!
Me: I…
President Rico: If the rest of your questions are this stupid, I will [THIS PART OF THE DIALOGE HAS BEEN REMOVED BY THE LMEC. WE APPOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVIENCE.] And then send it to your family!
Me: I…. Hrmm… I am sorry, mr. President. So… My next question. What happened to your eye?
President Rico: (Points to his right eye) My eye is fine.
Me: Hrmm… I mean the other eye. The left one…
President Rico: Oh, that eye. I’m a bit sensitive about that eye.
Me: I am sorry…
President Rico: But I like you. You have a strong jaw. And side burns. I like those. So I´ll tell you the truth. What does the official story say?

Me: The official story?
President Rico: Yes. Newspapers and people and the like! What do they say?
Me: Well, your press secretary has reviled that you lost it in unarmed combat with a cougar.
President Rico: He said that? Good! That’s true!
Me: I have also heard, that you cut it out yourself when you heard the expression “In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king!”
President Rico: In Lerando, the one eyed man IS king! Also a good story! And true!
Me. Sorry… Are both stories true?
President Rico: Sure. Or pick one, whatever. Next question!
Me: Alright. Can you tell me of the warlor… I mean the… the meeting of foreign political leaders that is to be held in Lerando this summer?
President Rico: I am meeting a small number of personal friends. We are to discuss important things like… economy and… building schools and dog shelters and things like that. What’s it to you? Keep going, I don´t have much time. One last question!
Me: OK. I have one more question. What do you see in Lerandos future? What’s next for this great country?
President Rico: That kind of two questions. Maybe not, but kind of. Are you stupid or something? Did you not learn math at all?
Me: No… I…

President Rico: I see great things for Lerando! Extraordinary things! I see a bright future for it´s people. I see a Lerando where the just Raven rule is supreme! I see our enemies growling at our feet, and our allies rising to heights they have never imagined. Every Raven soldier is my brother! My sister! And I see a Lerando where EVERYONE are siblings, united by common goals and ideas! I see wealth, power, and prosperity. I see my president ship not as my own accomplishment, but as an accomplishment shared with my brothers and sisters in arms. The Ravens are what Lerando needs! We will prove that to all the world!

Me. Thank you, mr. President.

President Rico: Yeah yeah. My men will escort you to the airport. If you write any stupid lies about me, you will [THIS PART OF THE DIALOGE HAS BEEN REMOVED BY THE LMEC. WE APPOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVIENCE.]

Berget 12 - Lords of War
Berget 12 will take place one year after the end of the Iron walls operation (Berget 11) and the dissolution of the GCT operation in the area.

The main target of the previous GCT operation was to capture the criminal leader Rico and put an end to the criminal and terrorist organizations ruling the country.

This was a failure since Rico managed to escape with family and key personnel. Rico has now proclaimed himself as president and has called a summit of his Warlord allies around the world to use the current political vacuum to strengthen his position and get support for his actions.

Whats new?

- There will be more and smaller teams with their own intrigues, missions and own agendas.
- The game area will have more object locations and new zones, more roads will be used.
- New heavy armoured in-game vehicles
- Berget dollars will be upgraded and play a bigger part of the game for the common player
- There will be a hardcore milsim unit with survival theme and operation start beyond the normal game area.
- Undercover agents will have objectives to infiltrate the different fractions
- Some key commanders will be played by senior Berget gamemasters.
- We will keep adding more resources to make communication better
- More new tents will be added and fuelpowered heaters will be installed in drying tents.
- We will clarify rules and instructions for minefields.
- All main bases & camps will have a senior game-master during gametime.
- Private team forums will get operational earlier to help players to communicate with teammates.

The tickets will go on sale Sunday 20:00 CET gmt +1 the 3rd of November 2013.

The tickets will be sold at a 30 EURO discount at the first four hours and following this ticket prices will increase at the end of each month. We are doing this to reward those who buy their tickets early which help us plan and make a better Berget for all.
