I don't necessarily have a bad taste in my mouth. I'd go back to more but the expectations will be different. Like many games, you have to make it fun in your own way.

It's tough herding 30 airsoft cats at a local game, now go ahead and herd 200+. So you gotta plan for the lowest common denominator which is what they went for. While it was fun it could have had alot more to it.

Hey folks,

Glad to hear you got a good time at MUTC. It is nothing like Zussman but since it is not a military base, it allows non-US citizens to enjoy a true MOUT environment.

That being said, you guys covered up the event pretty good. Regardless if it is a US or a CAN based event, you will always have to deal with the cheaters and casual players. It kinda suck for those who are showing to such events because of its realism but at the same time, it has to be expected since it is created by and for civilians. Even more, if it would have to be as close to milsim as possible, we would probably all hate having to do PT and fill sandbags

As you guys also mentioned, John Lu is catering to those with the money. He is a true business so he is not doing it just to be nice. He also have big expenses and also give big donations to the wounded soldiers and other military organizations whenever possible.

For those asking, I would say if you are not going with your own team/group, you will probably end up with a bad after taste. Main reason is because half the fun comes from the trip itself. If you are expecting the event alone to make you happy, you will be disappointed. I know I would not go if it was not for my team being there. Slinging bbs can be nice but being to truly use tactics with guys who know you as much as you know them is memorable.

Anyway, I just wanted to stop by and say hello. See you next year maybe.

Thanks. Its only my third video I've ever done so I think I'm getting the hang of it. Takes me a lot less time now also!

I'd definitely recommend for anyone to try and get to a game down in the US at one of their awesome facilities. Irene (more so the facility) was the highlight of my airsoft experience of 6 years so far. We're going to try and make it to atleast 1 big game down there every year now, if not more.

The Canadian law saying that guns need to shoot above 366fps? I'll let you piece that together
