      Well, ah, welcome to the return of the Standalone blog. This is its second post since it’s renewal.

      Note: Everything is in the perspective of myself, but I tried to keep facts true and accurate

      Let’s begin on the 29th September 2008.
      Well, I went Bankstown. I am getting glasses.
      Then I bought this uber1337 poster. Imagine, scenes of the original Star Wars trilogy put together in a collage and in its entirety an image of Yoda is formed with the words “Yoda / Jedi Masterâ€Â, as a motivational poster.
      Freaking awesome.

      But, to more pressing matters.
      Today, was, what I hope will be an annual event, was the FIRST Paintball game for our group.
      Freaking awesome
      (Remember to replace the word freaking with one ‘swear’-king)

      5:30AM: Wake up, get ready
      7:00AM: Go to Jimmy’s place
      7:01AM: (Not until I get home did I find out) Blackout
      7:15AM: Arrive at RYC


      So a list of the group going (Without permission, but its my blog XD)
      Anne (RYC staff)
      Tong (RYC staff)
      Me, Mark
      Patrick
      Jimmy
      Jack
      Thanh
      David
      Danny
      Kelvin
      Sharon (I repeat, Sharon!!!)
      Carmen (Jack and Pat’s tutor friend)
      Andrea
      Shirley
      Amin (Some awesome Lebanese guy that Jack, Jimmy and Pat know)
      Shawn (Some random)


      Bus ride to: Lets see, it was about 1 and a half hour drive and I had a nosebleed. That’s about it.


      Well, we get there, and all the guys are like, we do this like Men! And we’re all like no cups. Then getting our stuff we see the picture in the change room.
      The most horrible bruising in the last place we want.
      And we all get freaked.
      Not wanting to spend money on protection (Yes, I AM aware of how bad that sounds!!!), we all stuff the extra clothes we bring down there. I use my And1 bball shorts. More on that later.



      One

      First game: We split our selves into teams of… half our group.
      Bandits: Me, Patrick, Jack, Thanh, Andrea, Amin, Jimmy and Tong
      Snakes: The remaining.
      (I chose to be on the opposite side of Kelvin XD)
      Field: Two half towers with a ramp leading to the ends of the field serving as bases.
      A fort in the middle and lots of barrels and a few trees around.

      There was already about 8 Chinese players (I’m pointing this out because of their lack of communication, I mean, I was like “Hey, Banditsâ€Â, and they were like wtf?) so 4 more of them complemented our teams, man were they pro, and CHEATERS. Good thing neither side won in Capture the Flag.

      So, we begin.

      Our team splits. A few go to the left, less then a few to the right, and the remaining force forward to the fort.
      The people on the left hold their own against advancing Snakes.
      The main force takes over the fort but are surrounded by Snakes.
      The force on the right make a solid line and I run forward and take on the Snakes from behind. Man, those other guys were totally cheater.
      I shot ‘em in the back and they still continued when the rules say your suppose to raise the weapon above your head and leave the field.
      So I just continue to shoot ‘em in the back. Finally they find me and I’m pinned down behind some low barrels and then there’s this wicked shot that curves up and then arcs back down and hits me in the eye. Good thing for masks and my bandana.

      I LOL’d at Ting, he used a cardboard box to protect himself.
      And then Amin afterwards is full like, okay who shot me in the back and who shot me in the ass.

      This round: Technical 4 casualties, 1 ammo refill



      Two

      Second game, Part One: Hold the Fort
      Field: Okay image, a forest hillside, then a stream and on the other side of the stream up a slight slope is a semi-circle of barricades and inside rocks which the defenders are not allowed to leave.
      In the barricade is a yellow vest, named “The Medicâ€Â

      BEGIN

      We coordinate our team. Three up forward left. Two up forward right. Two to the left. And two in the centre acting as backup.
      We begin with volleys at the enemy, which is grouped. Can’t tell if we got anyone.
      I played conservatively not until they got close did I fire.

      So, I’m up by the rocks pointing out locations of the enemy. And a round hits my neck. Then all hell breaks loose. Healed by the Medic, I head to the let, Tong is under fire by a guy on the right.
      I lean on a log and focus my fire to the side and Tong on top. Easy target, as soon as the heap popped up, Tong got ‘em right between the eyes.
      Then, everyone starts shouting and I see Kelvin (With the beanie that made him easily recognisable), and as we were talking before on the bus, we had to get Kelvin on the knees. I take aim and fire, and what do you know I get him in the knees and yell out “Kneecappedâ€Â

      Time froze as automatic fire filled the valley. Thanh’s gun jammed and he sprayed the tree’s in front of him. Lucky him, new gun and free refill.

      Then, again on the left, Tong is under fire by two. I take up my old position and nail one on the forehead. And Tong takes out another one.
      Left secured, I stand atop a tall rock and point out the remaining Snakes. Two by the twin trees and one standing in the open. I open fire at the one in the open, not until later did I find out it was Amin, who was out.
      We win that round.

      This round: 2 Out, 20 rounds used



      Second game, Part Two: Assault the Fort
      Field: Same as before, except without a medic for the assaulters.

      BEGIN

      Okay, our plan was, massive Bandit force going down the right of the hill side, whilst a small team go down the left, and assault fort from the far left.

      The plan began perfectly. Patrick and I used the leapfrog tactic which I suggested was so much better than his Flank and Shank. That is a fact.

      So, it’s just Pat and I we make to a bunch of rocks and trees right next to base and start taking pot shots at the Snakes from behind, fatal mistake, we attracted attention.
      To make use of the 5m rule and how we’re not suppose to shoot someone within 5m Pat and I run up to the barricade and full dive behind it. It stops the shooting for a while. And I get wicked splash damage from a pellet.

      Pat counts down and on 1 I run to a tree near our target, the Fort flag, which we must touch to win.
      Then, as Jimmy told me after, he tried curving a bullet, and damn, he got me, behind the tree, and what really sucked was the fact that it bounced off my shoulder, which hurts much more than when it explodes.
      So I walk off the field with my gun above my head passed the fort and everyone looking at me and then Thanh, WHO’S ON MY TAEM shoots me right in the middle of my chest a few times (I’m wearing a shirt with a target symbol underneath the camouflage overalls) and says “You can’t kill a guy who’s already dead†That was LOL

      This round: 3 Out, 30 rounds used



      Lunch

      We took a breather and headed back to base or lunch. And I notice, My shorts, *cough* as protection *cough* have fallen. Man, and And1 shorts. They’re probably still there TT

      Please hold while I watch 20-1
      Ellen DeGeneres is so awesome


      Lunch, a time to reflect and eat hotdogs. Yeah, that’s about it.
      Everyone was full talking about who they shot and how they got shot. The word “Kneecapped†has never been so much more useful.
      And then Amin showed of his back bruise, HUGE swelling.



      Three

      Third game, Part One: Capture the [neutral] flags
      Field: Much like the first. Two team outposts on opposite sides of the field and on the field is only 2, 3 trees and a lot of barricades.

      This game was truly screwed up. Too easy.
      Standard strategy, Rush!

      So every one spread out and took cover behind every single barricade.
      It’s a stalemate then the next thing we know Tong, runs in and grabs a flag (it’s really a vest on the floor) and before anyone realises he’s half way back to base. Then, bang, straight in the back and he goes.
      The ref comes in, picks up the flag caries it to my barricade and drops the flag a couple meters away in open ground and says “run†to me.
      Oh, yeah.

      So I jump out grab the vest and take cover behind barricades and the rock on the way to base.
      Score One. One more to go.

      I run back out and go even further to the center and trip… how lame. And crawl to Thanh’s barricade.
      Adin soon joins us with a full dive and dust coming up EVERYWHERE, and in his hands, the second flag.
      Thanh and I are like, “We’ll cover youâ€Â, and like Scarface, we stand up above the barricade and start firing. We tell Adin to get to our fort and win and I see this red pellet coming straight to us, so I stand in front of it and it rebounds off my shoulder.

      Twice a pellet has hit my left shoulder and rebounded. TWICE.
      Oh, and I totally took a bullet for Amin.

      This round: 0 Out, 1 Flag assist/capture, 50 rounds used, 1 refill


      Third game, Part Two: Capture the [neutral] flags

      BEGIN

      The swapping of sides made drastic changes. The Snake’s sides, which was now our side was much more IMO.
      Jack was like, I’m going out terminator style.and the rest of us did the usual. We ran, took cover behind barricades and I watched Jack step out and walk to a barricade. Nothing happened, but it was freaking funny.

      So yeah, I took the far right and once again, stalemate. Foolishly moving between barricades, I get hit in the face again but the pellet ended up on my neck guard. Freaking awesome.

      So I head up to the safe zone, and the fields quiet.
      Then *cough* disobeyed the 5m rule and went around the rock, though I suppose he was surprised and just thought to pull the trigger at Shirley who 2m away.
      When Shirley came back she RAGED. Her finger had full circle skin break an was bleeding. RAGED.
      I didn’t find out who won. There were more pressing matters.

      This round: 1 Out, 40 rounds used


      Four

      Fourth game: Mock free-for-all battle, withstand pain, fire until you run our of ammo.
      Field: Same as Three

      Upon asking Shirley if she was going to play the mock battle she replied, “I’ve still got ammoâ€Â, which came to me as, “I’m going to RAGE with my new pack of ammoâ€Â

      BEGIN

      And yeah, we all chose a barricade, and the people on our side made a truce with each other, very unlike the other side â€" they had a full civil war.

      Apparently Jack was being shot at by Pat, so he emerged from his barricade and went to another and from the opposite side of the field I nail Jack 3 times. That was awesome. I then just full sprayed and stepped out due to lack of ammo.

      Last people in, Patrick whom everyone was gunning for, Andrea, who just bought a refill and had everyone’s bet to win, and some person I couldn’t make out sheltering.

      Everyone was rolling on the flood when Andrea started shooting at Patrick and rounds of her bullet hit her own barricade. But yeah, Andrea owned.

      And that was the end of that

      Final round: Gave nearly half my ammo to those nearly out, 30 rounds used



      Remember, this is based on what I experienced.

      Total gotten out: 10
      Flags captured: 1
      Ammo used = refills bought x 100 + Starting 100 â€" given out
      = 250 (apx.)
      Ammo saved: 3 (now in my fridge)



      Yeah ,that was fun, sad about losing my shorts, but Ting also lost his shirt!
      Then on the bus ride home, he reflected once again then started talking about schools and formal and yeah.
      And we stopped by the petrol station and bought icecream
      A VERY eventful day

      Afterwards crashed at pats place. XD

      Cheers. I’ll be home tomorrow nursing wounds.

    • Problem: No sound from browsers

      in Forums > Problem: No sound from browsers | Follow this topic

      jadems

      Ok, here's my problem.
      Any sound originating from my browsers, IE and Firefox have ceased to exist.
      My audio setup is with a MIDI keyboard and recorder hooked up to an entirely different sound system to my comp while another is for the computer generated sounds.

      Up until yesterday it worked perfectly, sounds from the vids of RvB and miscellaneous sounds from other sites (music, videos, beeps) but now they've stopped working.
      Video's still seem to play, and I've reinstalled and updated pretty much all my media software, Real player, WM player, Quicktime, and checked the cables to no avail.
      But sounds on my system and mp3 files still work.


      Any suggestions?

      I'm an Australian, and we're influenced by tons of other country's music, especially America.

      What I'd like to know, especially from you overseas people, is what kind of Australian artist have you even heard of, except for AC-DC (whom everyone should love) and Kylie Minogue (whom everyone should, quite frankly forget).
      This is because here, in Australia, really all i can think of are small time artists that just die out.

      Plus there is a little known fact about the Clones. Their Armor originated from the Mandalorian Armor (Well the Commandos mainly) and are the Clones of one of the Greatest Mandalorians. Jango Fett. Jango Fett lead men in the Jedi-Sith War, granted during that time the Mando's were allied with the Sith, because hey Mandos are mercs after all.

      What can I say... I'm a popular guy bigsmile.png

      Some variants of the M-4/M-16 are decent looking. I almost like the AR-10 (same as the AR-15/M-4/M-16 except the bolt, feed mechanism, and barrel have been enlarged to shoot 7.62 x 39) but it still has the reliability problems. The AUG/F88 isn't exactly a sexy gun but it look bad ass enough. It is growing on me. I really like the bullpup design. If the US military would get their head out of their asses, they'd get us a decent bullpup (Tavor cough cough). I just can't go for the M-4 family because they are so unreliable and have no stopping power. I am madly in love with the Heckler and Koch G3. It is a phenomenal firearm. It's sexy, the newer versions are among the most reliable and well built on Earth, and it has stopping power out the wazoo. It shoots the same round as the M-21 Sniper, the 7.62 x 51mm. And it does so at full auto. As Phoenixlord said in the thread, if the Tavor came in 7.62 x 51, I'd marry it. Sure it's ugly but it's compact, has a long barrel, good accuracy, good rate of fire, etc. It still lacks stopping power since it only fires 5.56 x 45 like the M4. If I was given the choice of automatic weapons, it would hands down be the G3SG1.

    • Cutlasslord

      11 years ago

      To my count, there are seven official variants and one new variant in testing. It's a frickin awesome gun. I wish we used the AUG/F88 rather than the M4/M16. It's a far superior gun.

    • Cutlasslord

      11 years ago

      Depending on which variant of the F88 you use it is a carbine. The F88 is a slightly modified AUG A1 which is technically a full sized assault rifle as it uses mid powered ammunition. Other variants, mainly the F88C are designated carbines because they are shortened versions of the full-sized rifle yet still not a "compact" firearm and continue to fire a mid sized round.

      Well..... having waded through endless comments on the 'What is the flood really existed?' Topic i could not find my previous comment, but i seem to remember the gist of what i was trying to say. I believe i was trying to get across the point that we've all been preparing for the coming of the Flood by playing zombies and that people seemed far too keen to give up hope... And yes i am aware by reading about 50 comments that the Flood are not Zombies... but hey i guess you've gotta work with what you've got.

      So i retract whatever statement i have made which has caused people to be so offended they give me negatives.

      .... I also believe that by the time the flood arrive, a strong enough disinfectent, along with Barry Scott... could take them on
