Registration will open on Thursday the 30th of May.
We will post the links to the relevant forms on May 30th. We will take applications for the Domiguan-Patriota Alliance, and Republicano Faction Commander roles right now. Details are in the Factions and Units sections. You can send an email expressing your interest to opfor.Ireland@gmail.com
Before you register please remember these restrictions:
- The age limit for the game is 16 years.
- Hi-Cap magazines are prohibited. This will be a mid and low cap ONLY game.
Price and payment
There are three payment options:
- If you pay and register at once by the 15th of July the cost of the event is €50.
- Bookings from the 16th of July will be €60.
- You can pay a deposit of €30 now and the balance of €30 at or before the game itself.
All payments will be by PayPal. Make a record of the payment reference number (not the booking number) as you will need it for the registration.
Why book early?
There will be cap on the event size of 200-250 players. And we will strictly limit the size of smaller units. Some of these are very popular and filled up within days of registration opening last year. So apart from the cost saving, we would recommend you book as early as possible.
You will need to provide contact details, your age (so we can see how many under 18 players we have), and your PayPal reference. Select your preferred unit, and an alternative if your first choice is full.
Once the form is submitted we will check the details and we will send you an email to confirm the payment was received, and which unit you will be in. Please bear with us if that may take a day or two. You will also be given access to the closed player forum.
Which Unit to Go For?
The different units have been tailored to give different types of game to players, from beginners to the more hardcore. Depending on what you are after, and your level of experience there should be something here for you. As we have said before though, this game will not be like a usual weekend skirmish. You will be expected to work as part of a unit and to follow orders in that group. Some of the time you may be waiting for things to happen.
Players new to MilSim
- Republicano – Presidential 25th Light Infantry
- Patriota – Heavies
These units will mostly operate in section sized groups, and will initially be given more routine missions e.g. patrols, probes, and direct assaults. They can expect plenty of action, and only a limited amount of Live-Action-Roleplaying (LARP). These units operate from a fixed base where they return to re-arm, eat and sleep.
General Purpose Units
- Republicano – IVth International Brigade
- Domiguan – 2nd Airborne
These will be similar to the Heavies and 25th Light Infantry, but they will have some additional secondary missions. And players can expect to have more LARP interactions. These units will have a variety of tasks including patrolling, attacking positions, protecting assets, and occasional sentry duty. You will work in groups from section size (5-10 players) up to the whole faction (potentially 100+). Sometimes you will operate independently, and sometimes you will have to co-ordinate with other groups. These units operate from a fixed base where they return to re-arm, eat and sleep.
For Experienced MilSim Players
- Los Gringos
- Intelligence and Special Operations Agency
These are smaller units with more specialised roles. Players can expect more demanding and varied missions, from stealthy reconnaissance, sniper and counter-sniper activity, to intelligence gathering, operating heavy weapons, recovery of high value assets, and more. Mostly working in smaller sections, though sometimes co-ordinating with larger units, players can expect to spend long periods away from their bases, and may have to be ready to bring all their food, water and ammunition with them. To give you an idea of how different these roles are, last year many of these players fired less than 100 rounds in the whole game! There will be significant LARP requirements for these units.
